I am a matured highlife composer-D-Flex

Highlife musician D-Flex says he sees himself as a matured composer as compared to other musicians in his genre. He believes the young and upcoming highlife musicians lack the ingredients to meet his style and standard. The young musicians he added need some grooming from the pioneers in the industry when it comes to song writing. Appearing on GH Entertainment on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the musician who went into hibernation for some time said, the upcoming highlife musicians are good but the repetitions in their songs are too much. D-Flex, who is currently promoting his latest ‘Ohemaa’ track however described Kumi Guitar as a threat. D- Flex real name Abubakar Sadiq Alhassan Dangaata, described the Zylofon Music signed artiste as a very good song writer. ‘’Kumi is an old friend. Kumi is good; very very good. He is a very good song writer. Somebody like is a threat. He is my threat. He is my threat, yes, he is my threat,’’ he responded to the question asked by the host. ‘’Kumi is good composer. I have known him in the past and I can confirm that, he is extremely good. Kumi is good when it comes to song writing.’’ He was however quick to add that, although Kumi is good, he lacks charisma. ‘’He is a good write but I feel that he lacks the charisma,’’ he concluded. D-Flex is currently promoting his latest single, ‘Ohemaa’. D -Flex worked with a number of Ghanaian A List musicians which included KK Fosu, Kwabena Kwabena, Ofori Amponsah, VVIP, Slim Buster and Guru.

The Executive Director of the United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Mrs. Henrietta Holsman Fore, has commended the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for the decision taken in September 2017 to introduce the Free Senior High School Policy. According to Mrs. Fore, “If I may pay homage to President Akufo-Addo, having free secondary school is probably the greatest gift you can give to a family and a girl. It then encourages the girl to not be considered lesser in her family, and it encourages her to go to school.” The UNICEF Executive Director explained that “if a girl can go to school, then there are so many other benefits. There are health benefits. She does not become a young mother, and become a young bride. Half of the maternal deaths are because the mothers are just too young, there are adolescents, and they are children with children. The benefits (of free secondary education) to a society are immense. For girls, we see that it is probably the single most important area for a government to bring up.” Mrs. Henrietta Fore made this known, on Friday, 27th April, 2018, at high level event to mark the achievement the Education Above All Foundation to enrol ten million children to receive quality primary school education across the world. President Akufo-Addo, who attended the event in his capacity as co-Chair of the Group of Advocates of Eminent Persons of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), stated, in his remarks, at the event, that there is no part of the world that does not recognise the importance of education. “We have all accepted that education is the best route to moving out of poverty. Today's youth, running barefoot to school, could be a future leader of the arts, business, government, industry or sports,” he said. President Akufo-Addo told the gathering that his father, “lost both parents at a tender age. But through perseverance and borrowing money from a relative, he burnt the midnight oil to end up as a barrister, and become the outstanding figure that he was in Ghana. Indeed, at the time I was born, my dad was still paying off monies borrowed from that helpful relative.” With 63 million children in the world, between the ages of 6 to 11, currently out of school, President Akufo-Addo noted that EAA and UNICEF will help bridge that gap, and draw us closer to the realisation of Sustainable Development Goal No. 4, which enjoins us to help ensure inclusive and equitable quality education, and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. “For us in Ghana, the Capitation Grant, introduced some 13 years ago, under the administration of that far-sighted Ghanaian statesman, His Excellency John Agyekum Kufuor, the 2nd President of Ghana’s 4th Republic, is, presently, enabling six million, three hundred and seventy one thousand, nine hundred and seventy five (6,371,975) school-going children, representing some 90% of school-going children in Ghana, to enjoy fee-free education in our basic schools,” he said. The President continued, “The Free Senior High School Policy, introduced for the first time by my Government in September last year, has put ninety thousand (90,000) more students into Senior High School in 2017, than in 2016. Our goal is to guarantee every Ghanaian child a minimum of secondary school education. It is the hope of every mother and father, not only in Ghana, that education will help their children escape poverty, and provide them the avenue to a good life.” On behalf of the ten million children, who are being afforded the opportunity to sit in a classroom, and chart their own path for the future, President Akufo-Addo said “thank you, once again, to Her Royal Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Education Above All and UNICEF.”

Director and Playwright for Village Minds Production, Woelianam Dziewornu-Norvor and Nii Ayi Solomon, have bemoaned the challenges and difficulties they face in order to stage a play. Appearing on GH Entertainment today [Saturday], the two decried the lack of interest on the part of corporate Ghana when it comes to sponsorship. Nii Ayi Solomon, told Prince Kwesi Dadzie aka Mr. Handsome that, it has been extremely difficult in getting sponsors to invest their money into theatre and arts in general. When asked if theatre pays, he answered saying, it could pay but for now, it is not paying. He also revealed on the show that, the company spent about GHc 33,000 last year to produce the play. He said, the budget for last year was GHc33, 000 because you need to pay for the venue, you have build the set, you pay for everything. According to him, friends including CEO for Rose Fabrics have been sponsoring them. The average cost for a production he noted will be roughly GHc20, 000. Dziewornu-Norvor on his part said, the cost for theatre production is expensive especially when you want to get a better job done. Village Minds Production has successfully produced two major plays namely, Homeless and Barber and Apprentice. By popular request, the Barber and Apprentice will be staged at the Alliance Francaise on May 5th, 2018. The next project for the company will be ‘Chains and Shackles’.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has expressed optimism that God will choose a presidential candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to represent it in the 2020 general elections. Addressing party supporters in Kumasi during the Unity Walk held today [Saturday], Mr. Mahama said: ‘’ “God himself will choose someone to lead us. And I know that when that person is selected, by the grace of God, we will be victorious in the 2020 election.” The Unity Walk forms part of recommendations by the Kwesi Botchway Committee that was tasked to probe what led to the defeat of the NDC in 2016. Already, the party has organized similar walks in Accra, Central, Western and Volta regions. Meanwhile, former CEO for the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Mr. Sylvester Mensah, has described the walk as divisive, intellectually bankrupt and an agenda for political recognition. “I think it is completely out of place and bankrupt to name it a unity walk” he objected. In an interview with Kwame Tutu host of the Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5 FM, the presidential aspirant stated that, he does not know who the organizers of the unity walk seek to unite through the ‘’bankrupt’’ walks and there is nothing uniting about the walks. “I don’t know who we are uniting in that walk and there is nothing unity in that walk. It is divisive, it is bankrupt by name and the only purpose it serves is the health benefits it provides, he coughed. “Perhaps, it is an agenda by the promoters for political recognition, political vision, for re-connecting and a host of others, he added.

Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has summoned General Secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, over alleged cases of irregularities in the ongoing branch elections. A statement from the former president and founder of the party said: ‘’The attention of His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings, former President and Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been drawn to several complaints and reports of malpractices and abuse of the process across several branches in the ongoing elections within the party. As a result of the gravity of the allegations of foul play, intimidation and total disregard for laid down party procedure and regulations, the Founder decided to invite party Chairman, Kofi Portuphy, General Secretary Asiedu Nketia and Vice-Chairman of the Council of Elders, Alhaji Iddrisu Mahama to his office on Friday April 27, 2018. Unfortunately, Mr Portuphy could not attend the meeting because he has been hospitalised and Alhaji Mahama could not be reached. In the meeting with Mr Asiedu Nketia, the former President brought the General Secretary’s attention to the serious complaints and petitions emanating from the elections and the potential damage to the party if no action is taken to rectify the wrongs.’’ The statement went on to add: ‘’ Mr Asiedu Nketia conceded that it was necessary to take due note of the several petitions and complaints by suspending or cancelling such elections so the allegations could be thoroughly investigated and elections re-conducted to instil sanity and confidence in the process. The General Secretary confirmed at the meeting that he had already directed some elections to be cancelled and re-conducted in some of the areas he had toured. The Founder has however learnt that the situation in Kpando, for example, has deteriorated in spite of directives by the General Secretary. Elsewhere in some branches he has received complaints about constituency executives arriving with a list they read out as the branch executives, party registers not being used, candidates not being vetted, notice of polls in terms of venue, date and time not issued and executives not making nomination forms available to some potential candidates they do not approve. He also received reports of some branches where executives unilaterally decided that certain people were not members of the party. Mr Rawlings said: “I have observed that certain elements in the party who are supposed to be unbiased arbiters and supervisors in these elections are rather pursuing a parochial agenda that is not in the party’s interest. These limited victories are like winning a battle and losing the war. We witnessed this in the selection of our parliamentary candidates in the 2016 elections, which partly accounted for our humiliating defeat in that election.’’ The statement which was signed by Communications Director Kobina Andoh Amoako said: ‘’ We are on the verge of breaking up the NDC if we pursue this path. The National Executive Committee has to take a serious look at the entire branch electoral process and ascertain whether they have been held in an open, free and fair manner devoid of foul play and deliberate abuse,” Flt Lt. Rawlings stated. The former President urged all party members across the country who feel aggrieved by the conduct of the elections to forward their petitions and complaints to the party headquarters. Copies of such petitions can be sent to his office so the concerns can be pursued with the national executive.’’
