Producer JMJ is back again with his “Riddim Of The GODS” Project for 2021. One would have thought he would put the ‘already-popular-A-List’ Rappers on it but no, he swerved everyone! This time the direction is different but unique; he takes a big leap to enlist 10 of Ghana’s hot new Rap heads for this year’s first tape he subtitles “The New Kings”.

 

As a Producer who loves to spot new talent and project them into mainstream, I took time to pick these guys for Phase 2 of my ROG Hiphop. In fact, the list of names that came to when I posted on social media I needed the names of Rappers to enlist for the next Hiphop tape, the list was so heavy and scary I almost deleted the post from Facebook. The line-up was very long with dope young rappers it was difficult to pick a final list to work with. But upon deliberations with the Team and engaging the artistes respectively, we arrived at 10 names we think availed themselves for this tape”, Producer JMJ explained.

 

Joshua Raphaelson, as he is known in private life is known, according to history, as the first African Producer to release a riddim in Africa. In 2008, he produced Africa’s first riddim titled “Trigger Riddim” that enlisted Samini, Stonebwoy, Iwan, Mugeez (or R2Bees), Ghetto KB among others. Within a space of 10 years, he released about 4 other riddim projects that gave (more) shine to listed Ghanaian Acts as well as producing hit songs from those.

 

Ghana’s 2015 BET Winner, Stonebwoy’s first hit single that went viral was “Hills And Valleys”, done on Producer JMJ’s “Trigger Riddim”. The ever popular “Scatter Badmind” song by MTV & MOBO Winning Act, Samini, was also produced on JMJ’s riddim project titled “Missile Riddim”.

 

11 Years later, Producer JMJ bounced back to launch “Riddims Of The GODS”, a brand identity he has coined to maintain and sustain riddim culture in Africa by doing it annually. The first edition of his “Riddim Of The GODS” (ROG) came with 5 separate tapes running through genres of Dancehall, Afrobeats, Hiplife et al with over 30 Artistes listed for it including huge names like Sarkodie, Samini, Stonebwoy, VVIP, Prince Bright (BukBak), EL, Edem, Akwaboah, Adina, Eno Barony, just to name a few.

 

“The New Kings” tape which is the very first on his 2nd edition of the ROG tape has enlisted 10 artistes namely Kofi Jamar, AY Poyoo, Phrimpong, Keeny Ice, Lyrical Joe, Amerado, Cedi Rap, King Paluta, Lokal, Bryan The Mensah and Boiiisam.

 

“They have been so eager from day one when we began working on the tape. They wish I was even gonna release the tape just after they voiced on the riddim; this shows how enthusiast they are and badly want their works out there on this project”, JMJ added.

 

The project kick-off for “The New Kings” tape is expected to be launched this week, 1st week of April across all digital platforms with a first exclusive stream via Boomplay.

 

Boomplay has been very instrumental in the “Riddim Of The GODS” Project. The maiden edition was partnered by them and all 5 tapes were exclusively released via their platform. Boomplay Music is Africa’s biggest and No. 1 music streaming network, available for download on the web, Android and iOS.

We'll Roast You at NEW Year Comedy Night, Send us to Court - DKB to Kurt Okraku

The annual New Year Comedy Night will kick off the 2023 event calendar in January. To start the new year, the event will return with even funnier and rib-cracking jokes.

Slated for January 2, 2023 at the La Palm Royal Hotel. Ahead of the show, Comedian and Headliner for the event, DKB has sent a message to the Ghana Football Association President; Mr Kurt Okraku.

The comedian won’t hold back when discussing the Ghana Black Stars and their recently concluded World Cup campaign. DKB asserts that he is prepared to appear in court because on January 2nd, he will roast the President, despite the GFA having warned that people would be prosecuted if they disparaged the GFA and The Black Stars.

“We will roast him [Kurt Okraku] come Monday January 2 2023 at the New Year Comedy Night event. On the night we [Comedians] will dive into all that happened in 2022 which fortunately Kurt Okraku and the Black Stars actively participated in.” He said.

“Yes I am aware of the letter that was published by the GFA, but it wouldn’t intimidate us into cowering and not speak about GFA and The Black Stars. We are ready to go to court because we will roast Him [Kurt Okraku].” He added.

There will be great performances by OB Amponsah, Lekzy DeComic, Foster Romanus, Jeneral Ntatia, Parrot Mouth, Putogo, and MjTheComedian with music from Sista Afia and Cina Soul. The show will be hosted by Kejetia Lawyer Nti.

They say I do money laundering – Mercy Eke of BBNaija

They say I do money laundering - Mercy Eke of BBNaija

Reality Star, Mercy Eke sits with Chude Jideonwo, host of the viral TV show, #WithChude to discuss accusations the media peddle against her and life after Big Brother Naija.

On her choice to respond to the blogger who claimed she slept with IVD, she shared, “This blogger has been on my case since forever. This person has tarnished my image more than anything, and I have never responded. This started when I was in the house. When this whole thing started, I saw that one of my fans released something where this blogger asked for 200,000 naira, and they did not give the person. And the blogger vowed that he or she will deal with me. But now, I am not in the house, you can’t deal with me based on whoever was handling my page. I didn’t even know about it because, they cleaned it up. When they handed over my phone to me, I didn’t see a lot of things, so I couldn’t pay for what I did not know. And since then, I have not rested. There is no story that this blogger has not involved me, till that one, I won’t respond. But this one, someone just died, there is a case of domestic violence, and I know this woman, we are friends. Then something that I know nothing about, you just brought my name out of nowhere and say that I am sleeping with this person”.
“That is the first and last time, I am going to respond to something, but I needed to respond to that one, she added.
Mercy also shared her thoughts about Phyna being the second woman to win the reality TV show.

“Honestly speaking, I have been waiting on someone to take on that role, let that pressure move, I want to rest. I want another person to come and take it, let the blogs focus on this person. Because I know when someone comes, at least I will rest.

She also reacted to the stigma successful women have to deal with, “It is very offensive. I feel that it is taking away all the efforts, the sleepless night, all the hard work we women put to get together where we are. They will just take away all effort and tag it as someone is behind you. I am not saying it is bad to have someone behind, if you have a rich boyfriend, some people’s love language might be taking care of you, buying you nice things, and giving you money. However, you will still work hard. They said I do money laundering; they have dealt with me in this industry. I came into this industry without no advice, just myself and my team and I started building brand.

On her motivation to be in the Big Brother house, she shared, “I auditioned four times. I just have that voice in me that says, ‘this is where you will make it’. So, each year when they say, ‘‘try again next year’. I still have that thing in my head that, ‘Okay, I will try’. Back then it was just to be famous”.
