Lilwin & his Wife
“In this world, you cannot be living your life based on rumors and hear say. If I have issues with my wife, I will not come out and start complaining about it. Not at all; I understand you guys make money by writing about us. Whoever wants to write about me should write. Once you are a celebrity, your name will be attached to controversies and I understand that. If you are living with a lady and she leaves you when you have not done anything to her, then God will not bless you. So don’t listen to humans. Don’t mind anybody. It is not true.” Multiple awards winning comedian, Lilwin has opened up on his alleged marriage fiasco and as well debunked everything that the media earlier reported last week.
It was made public few days ago that the rib cracking actor had sent his wife and mother of his kids packing out of the house, making way for his mother to resume care taking duties of his children. He told an Accra based radio station, Happy FM that these rumors don’t seem to facet him one bit – that they are lies concocted to tarnish his image .
Kojo Nkansah, his real name, has fumed seriously at some media persons for their lack of enquires into matters before alerting the public. But in same vein, some fans are asking that the wife comes out and either support her husband’s claims or tell the world what she has to say.
We shall update you as soon as we get whims on the issue.

15-year-old famous child-actor, Abraham Attah has been made the ambassador for free Senior High School (SHS) education flagship programme by the Education Ministry. It would be recalled that the president of Ghana, had promised that, the free SHS programme will commerce in September this year, thus, it is in order that the Ministry make their ambassador public, few months before the commencement.

Remember that the young man first came into our hearts with his acting in Netflix’ 2015 hit movie ‘Beasts of No Nation’. Adding to this catalog, his new movie which he starred in, ‘Spider-Man – Homecoming’, would soon be made public.
“I think we should stop using young people, making them look like old men and women, trying to make them up. The thing is that you can’t cheat nature. You will do everything for them to look like old people, but their voices alone will betray them; what worries me is that everybody wants to play in a kind of drama that will make people laugh only and I ask myself ‘is life all about laughter?’. Life is tall, short, fat, slim, head, toe; such is life. So why would you want people to always laugh?” Legendary screen god, Fred Amugi rhetorically spoke to Doreen Andoh on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Accra-based Joy FM.
The veteran actor was also quick to shower praises on all the directors and producers who give the older folks their roles as well as give the younger folks what they deserve to play. He made it known that no matter how smart or good a younger actor may be, it is inappropriate for that person to execute the role meant for another person. He said that out there in the West, right roles are apportioned to the right people and that has always made their outcomes perfect or close to perfection compared to our end here.
In ending his interview, he said that he believes that the older actors possess certain physiological traits that are necessary for the execution of the older characters that the younger ones do not have, therefore throwing suggestions that producers of stage play put a slice of every aspect of life on stage; the good, the bad and the ugly, in order that everyone would get the chance to relate to the play on all levels – he hinted that the film folks should take a cue.
“We want Ghanaians to know that our coming into the industry is to bring healthy competition in artistes’ promotion. As entertainment industry gains the attention of Africa and the world at large with the likes of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Samini, Mzvee, Shatta Wale and the likes, it’s imperative that we contribute our quota in aiding budding talents – as well as established talents in reaching the climax of their career.” Ebodili Chijiokwu Simeon, the Chief Executive Officer of Gra Gra Records & Entertainment made this statement to selected entertainment writers in Accra while unveiling his plans to invest into the already booming entertainment industry.
Ebodili who’s popularly known in the entertainment circles as Skolary also made known his plan to sign three established artists to give other record labels a run for their money, as he’s set to redefine how high valued artists are to be treated and nurtured into a world class status. He also reaffirm that part of his record label goals is to reduce the rate at which artists with raw talents are neglected.
“At Gra Gra Records, we are determined to fine tune and position them as a high valued talent, same way Wizkid, John Legend, Becca and the likes were spotted and nurtured by BankyW, Kanye West, Kiki Banson and the likes, respectively.” In their effort to test the waters and strategically position itself in the pool of sharks already in the industry,
Gra Gra Records & Entertainment has – in the last six months – teamed up with King Jay Entertainment in promoting SwagKid, one of Ghana’s promising up and coming artist.
Bice Osei Kuffour
According to MUSIGA led by their able head, Bice Osei Kuffour, the renaissance of live music in Ghana and venues that provide live music increasing by the day, the level of musicianship in the country can only continue to improve and Ghana will sooner than later be adequately represented in the global community of music; thus, they are calling on President of Ghana to ensure that music education is reintroduced at the basic levels of our educational system. This is in view of the immense benefits music education offers to both the individuals and the nation, such as the development of the areas of the brain related to language and reasoning of students as a result of early musical training.
This has created a situation whereby public schools do not teach music education at the basic level and students who are interested have to pick up the subject at Senior High School or University level after the gap in their primary schools.
“The reintroduction of music education at the basic level will provide the necessary training for our talented children which will help them adequately develop their God given talents. It is for this reason that the Union is calling on His Excellency the President to ensure that as a lover of music, this is done during his tenure.” MUSIGA.
