Entertainment of Sunday, 5 February 2017
The week has come to a close and I must say this week has been a consuming one with a lot happening on social media and traditional media.
Ghana got talking to a host of issues ranging from politics, sports, education, sex, fashion and other topical issues.
The biggest story that got Ghanaians talking was Ghana’s lost to Cameroon and a poor show in the game. What infuriated Ghanaians the most was the fact that the goalkeeper insulted them even before the game.
However, in this article, our focus will be limited to the entertainment industry and the various topical issues for the week and the focus will be on Ghana.
1. Ara B sent to the cooler
One issue that got the whole country talking was the arrest of Ara B by Shatta Wale’s baby mama, Shatta Michy. Ara B in a post on Facebook alleged that Shatta Michy is a lesbian and an unfaithful woman who sleeps with friends of Shatta Wale. The Dancehall Prince was arrested after his post but was later released after spending the night in the cooler.
2. Kwabena Kwabena’s wife divorces him

3. VGMA Bribery saga continues unabated
Charter House’s PRO a week ago alleged that some Gospel artistes give him bribes for awards. This comment did not sit down well with the artistes that some have decided to boycott this year’s awards.

He is the first in the country to have done this.
6. Ghanaians still not sure the kind of work Criss Waddle does
AMG Business boss, Criss Waddle, although revealed in an interview that he is a plumber, the blood brother of the artiste, Kwasi Pee is unaware of the kind of work his brother does.
