Veteran hiplife trio VVIP will perform alongside a host of other artistes at this year’s edition of YFM’s Loud in GH.

This year, the annual event, which has been considered as the official Christmas party in Ghana is slated for December 17 at the Labadi Beach, Accra dubbed the ‘Beach Mashup’.

According to organizers, VVIP has confirmed to put up a show stopping performance for music lovers from all walks of life that will flood the venue on Saturday, December 17.

The group, made up of Zeal, Reggie Rockstone and Prodigal, are known for their various award winning hits like ‘Alhaji’, ‘Dogo Yaro’, ‘Skolom’ and ‘Selfie’ among others. They have vowed to treat patrons of the event with all of their hits back to back on the said day.

Commenting on the event, Ms Naa, General Manager of YFM, said, “YFM is all about entertainment, innovation and turning it up with the best parties. Due to the great feedback we got from our listeners and the public after last year’s event, we have decided to once again move ‘Loud in GH’ to the beach, prolonging the fun to last throughout the day and giving our patrons a truly memorable experience”.

Other great musicians like Trigmatic, Guru, Mr. Eazi, Medikal, Epixode, Joey B and Mz Vee  among others are all fired up to perform at the much anticipated show.

However, there will also be great music from YFM’s best DJ’s from Accra, Kumasi and Takoradi as well as other interesting activities to give a great kick-start to the Christmas celebrations.
Gbese Mantse Nii Ayi Bonte II (arrowed) hiding from the cameras yesterday
The man who touts himself as the chief of Gbese, Nii Ayi Bonte II, yesterday suffered an embarrassing fate when president-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, called on the Ga Traditional Council at Dodowa.

Nana Akufo-Addo had gone there to thank the chiefs and the queen mothers for their support during the 2016 electioneering campaign – which saw him elected as president.

He went there in the company of his wife, Rebecca and party kingpins, including Acting General Secretary, John Boadu; Regional Chairman, Ishmael Ashitey; Professor Mike Oquaye; Stanley Adjiri Blankson; Ayikoi Otoo; Laud Commey; Nii Ayittey Boafo and some of the NPP’s elected Members of Parliament in the region as well as those who failed in their parliamentary bids.

A few days to the December 7 elections, an emotionally charged Nii Ayi Bonte II – famously known as Tommy Okai – was seen at a public function largely attended by members of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), vowing to destool himself if the NPP’s candidate (now president-elect), was voted as the president of Ghana after 7th December, and subsequently sworn in on 7 January, 2017.

Nii Ayi Bonte claimed that (outgoing) President Mahama and the NDC government had done more than enough in terms of projects hence, was sure they would win the elections and decided to put his stool [even though not the rightful occupant] on line.

Interestingly, the man has since gone silent after Akufo-Addo was declared winner of the election, as many people, including his own people in Gbese, have begun to call for his head.

Luck eluded him when Akufo-Addo (now the president-elect) and members of his team entered the hall where the meeting with the Ga Traditional Council was to take place.

Minutes after they had arrived at the place, Tommy Okai, former chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak Football Club, started taking cover, hiding his face.

He had gone to sit far behind the crowd where he could not be easily identified, with his body language telling of a man feeling quite apprehensive, whiles trying strenuously without success to swerve the prying eyes of journalists and the cameras.

Throughout the programme which lasted close to 30 minutes, Nii, who was fully dressed in a chief’s regalia, was seen bending his head to avoid being captured by the cameras.

Try as he did, the media men, especially the photographers, managed to capture him from the distance with their sharp lenses.

Many were those who thought the chief would be apologetic enough by eating back his words to go and greet Nana Akufo-Addo after the event as he [the president-elect] and the chiefs and queen mothers exchanged pleasantries, but the self-acclaimed chief was nowhere to be found, obviously shy to go close.

Ahead of M.anifest’s end of year concert, M.anifestivities 2016, the has godMC dropped his latest video for 100% ( directed by Garth Von Glehn (Flourish and Multiply).

Two of Ghana’s hottest MCs, according to MTV, team up on this banger.  Rapidly rising Ghanaian musician, Worlasi joins M.anifest on 100% and the up beat video reveals a side of them rarely seen. 'Normally some deep things, but now we dey ease things' is how Worlasi put it.

The Keta Lagoon resort served as the backdrop for this video with pulsating rhythms against an enchanting sunset.

The Mobeatz-produced banger was dropped months ago but could this be a precursor to a joint project between M.anifest and Worlasi?

The pair collaborated on two songs on M.anifest's ‘Nowhere Cool’ album.  The video was Executive Produced by TTD Media Ltd.
