Gender Minister Pledges Support For Miss Ghana

Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection Cynthia Morrison, Minister for Gender, Children & Social Protection, has pledged to support the Miss Ghana brand to win back its old glory. The minister, who is obviously not happy with how some persons have been soiling the Miss Ghana brand, said she would be helping showcase the positives about the oldest and the longest running annual beauty contest in Ghana. This, she believes, would make the brand more attractive than it is now. “Now that I am involved in the pageant, I will make sure that positives are mostly spoken of,” she announced on Friday. She was speaking at the launch of the 2019 edition of Miss Ghana pageant at Tang Place Hotel in Accra when she made the announcement. The Miss Ghana brand has, in the last few years, suffered negative publicities after three former winners of the pageant came out in December 2017 to paint a gloomy picture of the beauty event, alleging that they were ‘pimped’ by the organisers…

Renowned hiplife artiste Michael Kwabena Okyere Darko says he does not want to be called by his stage name, ‘Obrafour’, anymore. The rapper, who rose to fame with the release of his much-acclaimed album titled ‘Pae Mu Ka’ in 1999, has decided to drop his stage name. Speaking with Franky 5 on This Is Gospel on Hitz FM, the artiste revealed that he prefers the name ‘Rap Sofo’. “Now I wouldn’t want to be called Obrafour anymore. I am saying this for the first time here,” the rapper said.

‘Gov’t Can’t Build Creative Arts Industry In 4 Years’

Actor Ecow Smith-Asante is not convinced any Ghanaian government can build or help develop the creative arts industry the way it should within a period of four or eight years. Speaking in an interview with NEWS-ONE, he said because showbiz is always the least on the priority list of every party which comes to power, “the problems of this our industry cannot be solved by governments.” “If they take oil, education and roads, all these things are good for the country. I mean these are basic necessities that every country should have. So until they solve all these things, which I doubt, they ever finish. Our industry which is the showbiz industry is always like a top-up. They are not realising the income it can generate because they have not paid attention it because they don’t understand it,” he indicated. However, Ecow believes that can change if there is a national developmental agenda that all governments must follow. He has suggested there should be a system that requires a deve…

 Inna, who is also Miss Ghana 2004 winner and the CEO of EEGL, in a lawsuit spotted by NEWS-ONE, seeks to clear her name of allegations by the ex- queens that she has turned the Miss Ghana pageant into an “escort agency”.
