Rape is a commission of unlawful sexual intercourse or unlawful sexual intrusion. Historically, rape was defined as unlawful sexual intercourse with a woman against her will. The essential element of the crime were sexual penetration, force and lack of consent.
Women who were raped were expected to have physically resisted to the utmost of their powers or their assailant would not be convicted of rape. Additionally, a husband could have sex with his wife against her will without being charged with rape. Beginning of the 1970s, state legislators and courts expanded and redefined the crime of rape to reflect modern notions of equality and legal property.
Airing this Sunday between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Metro TV, the panellists on Law Express will discuss the position of the law on rape, what constitutes rape and also the punishment for anyone who perpetuates the act.
Moderator for the show, Nuhela Seidu will be hosting lawyer and economist, Gad Motey. Mr. Motey was called to the bar in 2007 and has been in continues active service. His is a general legal practitioner with interest in commercial, corporate maritime and criminal law.
The other panellist will be Reginald Niibi Ayibontey, a lawyer and former Member of Parliament for the Ododiodioo constituency. He is also the former chairman of the national premix committee and specialises in civil and criminal litigation.

Mellow & Sleazy on working separately
We’re almost never in the studio at the same time. He usually makes his own beats separately and I make my own beats separately, then we just exchange the projects and finish off each other’s projects. We just give each other space – he does his own thing, I do my own thing then once we’re done we’ll share what we have done, he’ll edit whatever I’ve done and I’ll edit whatever he did, then it becomes a full song.
Mellow & Sleazy on experimental sounds
So basically we’ve only tried experimenting with two genres, Bacardi and… I forgot the name of the sound but it’s from Angola so we’ve tried experimenting with those two sounds and a bit of soulfulness, because most of the people know us for being hardcore producers that make like loud music all the time, so we tried making it soulful but keeping that element at the same time. The whole EP is Bacardi, basically.
Mellow & Sleazy on exciting talent showcased on their new EP
The underground talent that we have on our EP… the first one is M.J, he’s a rapper and singer. He’s been on a lot of hits actually, he’s one of the vocalists that we always work with because he’s very versatile. He can do what five vocalists can do in the studio, so that’s why we’re always working with him. Another one is Matute Boy. Bacardi usually needs someone to rap fast, and with the lingo… and who else? Azi! Azi is a singer, we’ve just started working with him now, he’s very very new but he’s too much. I’ve never heard a voice like that so yeah, we’ll see where that takes us.
