Undoubtedly, the 2023 Mercedes Maybach Virgil Abloh S680 is a unique choice for Davido’s big day. The singer took to social media to share the moment he was chauffeured to his traditional wedding amidst top security and cheers from fans and observers.

George Lutterodt, a prominent Ghanaian relationship counselor and media personality, has commented on Davido and Chioma Rowland’s recent lavish wedding in Lagos.

The event garnered widespread attention on social media, with Davido speaking Twi and celebrating with guests in a grand ceremony.

While many offered congratulations, Counselor Lutterodt expressed skepticism about the longevity of Davido and Chioma’s marriage.

In an interview with Peace FM, he predicted that their union might not last beyond seven years. Lutterodt cited concerns about past controversies and the tragic loss of a child, suggesting these factors could impact the stability of their relationship.

Lutterodt also pointed to Davido’s history with multiple children from different mothers, raising questions about his commitment to marriage. He hinted that the wedding might be perceived as a gesture rather than a solid foundation built on mutual respect and long-term commitment.

His remarks have sparked online discussion about the complexities of celebrity relationships and the challenges they face under public scrutiny.

Defe Defe: What Team Eternity told Tiwaa Rockson, a member of Halleluyah Voices will shock you – video

0

Mabel Tiwaa Rockson, a member of the Ghanaian Gospel music group Halleluyah Voices, has spoken out about the ongoing copyright infringement controversy involving Team Eternity.

The issue arose after Kwame Mickey, a Ghanaian music producer based in the USA, accused Team Eternity of using a portion of a song he produced without obtaining permission, threatening legal action if necessary.

In an interview with Dave Hammer on Hello FM in Kumasi, which was reported by Ghanamedia.net, Mrs. Tiwaa Rockson provided her perspective on the matter. She revealed that she had intentions to create a remix of the song in question.

However, before she could proceed, she heard her children singing a different version of the song, which led her to believe they had already made their own remix.

It was only after this incident that her husband informed her about Kwame Mickey’s social media post regarding the song and the dispute with Team Eternity. Mrs. Tiwaa Rockson mentioned that last week, her husband received a surprising phone call from Team Eternity, during which they allegedly suggested that they should not escalate the issue as if they were secular artists.

As of now, Team Eternity has not issued a public statement addressing the allegations and the copyright dispute. The situation continues to unfold amidst discussions about intellectual property rights and the importance of adhering to proper copyright protocols within Ghana’s music industry.

David Atanga defends Ghana goalkeeper Lawrence Ati-Zigi amid criticism

KV Oostende forward David Atanga has come to the defense of Lawrence Ati-Zigi amidst ongoing criticism of the St. Gallen goalkeeper.

Ati-Zigi, who has faced scrutiny for his performances with the Ghana national team, has the support of Atanga, who insists his former teammate is a talented goalkeeper deserving of more respect.

Atanga urges fans not to judge Ati-Zigi solely on statistics, which he believes don’t accurately reflect the goalkeeper’s true abilities and contributions. Speaking to Mothers FM, Atanga said, “Ati-Zigi has received a lot of criticism from some football fanatics.

He has been labelled as a subpar goalkeeper by many. Truth be told, Ati-Zigi is not a bad goalkeeper. Even the greatest goalkeepers in the world, including Manuel Neuer, have bad days and make mistakes from time to time.”

He continued, “I urge anyone who thinks he is not a good goalkeeper to monitor him at his club, and after watching him, you can decide whether he is good or bad. We shouldn’t only base our judgment on statistics.”

Atanga highlighted the importance of considering the context of a goalkeeper’s performance: “A goalkeeper can concede goals during a game but still make a lot of saves. We played together at Salzburg, and he was nearly turned into an outfield player.

Ati-Zigi is a very good goalkeeper; there is just a lot of pressure when playing for Ghana. In our last two games against Mali and the Central African Republic, our defenders underperformed, and the goalkeeper was blamed.”

Ati-Zigi has been Ghana’s first choice since the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, briefly losing his spot to Richard Ofori during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, but has since reclaimed his position. Atanga’s comments aim to provide a more balanced view of Ati-Zigi’s abilities and the challenges he faces, calling for greater support and understanding from fans.

OFM Computer World requests YouTube to mute Team Eternity’s ‘Defe Defe’ over copyright issues

Music Record Label, OFM Computer World known as DrAcheampong Kasa who manages German-based gospel artist Queenlet, has asked YouTube to pull down Team Eternity Ghana’s hit song “Defe Defe” over alleged copyright infringement.

 In a letter to the platform, the record label stated that the popular song reused portions of the original copyrighted song “Defe Defe” by Hallelujah Voices without their permission.

As such, they have requested that the platform change the song’s visibility to prevent individuals from accessing it ahead of pending legal action.

“But before any legal action is taken in Ghana’s capital city court, I request YouTube to make the video private, not visible since its copyright infringement,” the label said.

This was contained in a letter signed by OFM Computer World on June 20.

The letter also asserted that the music group often sampled songs by other musicians without the owners’ permission.

On June 18, in a Facebook post, Kwame Mickey, the executive producer for Hallelujah Voices’ ‘Defe Defe’, alleged that Team Eternity Ghana has infringed on his copyright by using the ‘defe defe’ line for their new hit song.

He wrote: “Who is that Defe Defe singer? If I start right now them go say I am ‘mansonia’. What is the difference between the two songs? Somebody tell her to report and do the needful. That’s all.” 

Although structurally, the rhythmic patterns and melodic phrases of the two lines are different, Kwame Mickey is making a case for the similarities in the lyrical content.

‘Defe Defe’ song performed by Hallelujah Voices, was written by Osuani Afrifa and executively produced by Kwame Mickey for Kaakyire Music Productions. It was released in 2004.

The recent copyright issue has sparked a lot of debate. While some argue that Team Eternity’s “Defe Defe” is different from Hallelujah Voices’ song, others contend that the mere fact that two lines are literally the same constitutes copyright infringement.

Former Ghana midfielder Agyemang-Badu concerned over AFCON 2025 timing for players

0

Former Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has expressed concerns over the scheduling of the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Morocco, highlighting the challenges it poses for African players.

The tournament’s new dates, set between December 2025 and January 2026, were announced by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) following an Executive Council meeting last Friday.

This timing forces top African players based in Europe to navigate between club commitments and missing the festive season with their families. “It’s a very difficult situation, but this is our job. This is the kind of job we want to do,” Agyemang-Badu shared with Joy Sports.

“You need to be there and represent your country, you need to make yourself proud, your country proud, so whenever you get the call-up, whether it’s Christmas time, whether the European club will worry us, you just need to come and do the job for your country.”

Originally slated for June/July 2025, the AFCON rescheduling was necessitated by Morocco hosting the expanded Club World Cup during that period. The proposed alternative of early 2026 was also untenable due to conflicts with the FIFA World Cup calendar.

Badu also called on CAF to prevent future scheduling conflicts, stating, “It’s just unfortunate, but we need to abide with it and just go with it. I hope it will not repeat itself because it will bring a lot of chaos for the players.”

Ivory Coast are the reigning champions of Africa after winning the delayed 2023 tournament on home soil in February 2024.
