Wanlov the Kubolor ordered to pay GHs55,000.00 to Chalewote CEO in defamation case

Published

on

Cofounder and Director of Chalewote Street Art Project, Mantse Aryeequaye has won a defamation suit against Wanlov the Kubolor. 

In 2019, Wanlov the Kubolor had accused Mantse Aryeequaye of being a sexual predator and physical abuser in a tweet. “Mantse Melvin Nii Aryeequaye, founder of Accra (Dot) Alt, Sabolai Radio Music Festival, Chalewote Street Art Festival, and Redd Kat Pictures, is a woman beater, abuser, and sexual predator. He chose the wrong person to intimidate,” Wanlov tweeted at the time. 
Mantse Aryeequaye responded to Wanlov’s accusations by filing a defamation lawsuit against him, which he has won. 

According to the court’s decision, Wanlov was unable to prove his claims, and he “appeared to be naive and did not exercise the best judgment. He appeared to have let his celebrity status cloud his judgment on the occasion.”

Mantse Aryeequaye’s attorneys sought GHs1,000,000.00 in damages, but the court only awarded them GHs50,000.00 due to the high cost.

“I think the defendant even though liable to pay damages must not be destroyed with punitive damages of that colossal amount that can destroy his talent in the arts community. As a result, and way of ‘go and sin’ no more. I shall award by way of general damages a compensatory sum of GHs50,000.00 against the defendant in favour of the plaintiff,” the court said as part of its judgement.

“I would award costs of GHs5,000.00 in favour of the plaintiff,” the court added.

Wanlov was also given a perpetual injunction restraining order; “His assigns, agents, privies whatsoever and howsoever described from any further publication of the said libellous and defamatory statement or any similar words or statements of the defamatory of the plaintiff”.

Kira Forex: The Ghanaian woman setting the pace in the Forex Trading business

Published

on

The advent of new media and digital money-making platforms has provided a plethora of opportunities for people to earn money and transform their life stories through legitimately acquired wealth and affluence.

One such life-changing and lucrative opportunity presented by new media is the forex trading business, which has surged in the past decade, leading to the creation of millions of new millionaires and billionaires worldwide.

Forex Trading is essentially the art of studying the global currency market and leveraging information about currency rates to buy and exchange currencies on a forex marketing platform.

The popularity of Forex Trading has soared in the country over the past half-decade, with several Ghanaians studying currency trends and making significant financial gains from it. However, only one name stands out in the business.

Amid the growing interest in the Forex Trading business in the country, only one name has emerged as the pioneer and pacesetter: Lamidi Sikira, better known by her brand name, “Kira Forex.”

Just as Yaa Asantewaa is synonymous with feminine bravery in Ghana, Kira Forex has become the prime face of Ghanaian and African excellence in the forex trading business.

With over ten years of experience, Kira Forex has rightfully earned the reputation of a forex trading luminary, with several awards in Ghana and across the continent validating her position as one of Africa’s leading forex traders.

Her success in the field is so profound that she revealed in 2023 that she turned down a $20,000-a-month job to continue leading the pack in the forex trading industry.

A trait of Kira Forex that endears her to many Ghanaians is her selflessness and willingness to guide others, particularly Ghanaian women, out of poverty. Having established herself in the field, Kira Forex founded the Kira Forex Academy with the goal of enlightening Ghanaians, especially women, about the forex trading industry, enabling them to earn money from the comfort of their homes.

A staunch advocate for the independence and growth of women, Kira Forex believes that financial freedom is the most crucial condition for independence and is thus leading many Ghanaian women on the path to financial freedom and wealth.

She also established the Kira Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization committed to enlightening, enriching, and empowering individuals in Ghana and across Africa. Through this foundation, she actively supports programs and social causes aimed at improving the lives of youths and the elderly, exemplifying her commitment to serving humanity.

Her outstanding work as a Forex Trader and philanthropist has earned her several awards, including Most Influential Trader and Best Forex Trader in Singapore, Outstanding Service Award in Nigeria, Africa’s Under 40 CEOs Award in Uganda, and Best Female Forex Trader of the Year in South Africa, among others.
