Efia Odo says God is a female.

Actress and Tv presenter, Efia in a recent twitter post referred to God as she. She tweeted a photo of herself in a Garden. The caption that came with the tweet was “calling God, She put me on hold”.

The tweet sparked a debate among the followers of the actress. Some followers thought it was true while others believed that it was a false statement because God couldn’t be female.

This led to a back and forth argument between her followers. Some of them were giving reasons why God could be a female whiles others opposed to that school of thought.

a tweet to followers

One user commented that God could be female since he created both males and females in his own image. The user cited the book of Genesis as reference. This made another person draw the user’s attention to the pronouns that was used for God.

Judging from the actress’s background, it couldn’t have been an error. Besides she could have updated her post she wanted so her recent tweet is not a surprise to many. This is because the actress has a different opinion about God and religion.

The Tv presenter and model believes that each individual has his or her own views as to who God is. She also believes that Jesus is not God. From this point of view, we can say that Efia Odo did not make a mistake when she tweeted with that caption.

Efia Odo did not make any comment to her followers when the sought to correct her. Maybe she was enjoying the debate she started.

Akuapem Poloo said that it was crazy how people could get about 1000 likes within a few seconds of posting something. “But Instagram too you are smart oo. You realized people have been buying the likes. Because how can one person post something and under 2 seconds they will get 60k”.

She blamed those buying Instagram likes for the company’s decision to hide them. The social media influencer further encouraged them to use the monies they spend on buying likes to take care of their kids. ” Guys now you have to save your money. The money you have been using to buy likes for your kids. Credit cards you have been using to buy likes. Why? Now because of you we cannot see our likes again.

The Actress went on to make up of those who were going to be affected by Instagrams decision to hide the likes. “Instagram, people will die oo. E dey pain you. Stop buying likes”, she ended.

News circulating on social media alleges that Shatta Wale together with other Ghanaian artists Grammy nomination is not true. This was brought to light by blogger Ebenezer Donkoh. He tweeted that for someone to be part of the Grammy nomination, he or she must earn 51% playing time an album.

This means that Shatta Wale doesn’t qualify to be a nominee because he only worked on one project on the album.

The tweet got many SM fans talking as they were already celebrating the success of the leader whiles trolling Sarkodie and his fans.

After the tweet by Ebenezer Donkoh, other bloggers such as Ameyaw Debrah have confirmed that Shatta Wale has indeed not earned a Grammy nomination.

If that is true, it means that Guiltybeatz, and M.anifest have also not earned a Grammy Nomination and Rocky Dawuni still remains the only Ghanaian artiste who has earned a Grammy nomination.

SM fans who were not happy about the news got angry with the blogger and called him all sorts of names. According to them, he was just a hater who did not like to see Shatta Wale succeed.

Fans of Sarkodie who had earlier been trolled took to Twitter to payback SM fans in their own coin by also trolling them.

Investigative Journalist, Kiki Mordi, known for the “sex for grades” expose has criticized Actress Yvonne Nelson for being a hypocrite because she did not back her talk with actions.

This is because the Actress posted a sexually seductive picture of herself on twitter. This shouldn’t have been a problem but the Kiki Mordi posted an old tweet of the the Actress (Yvonne Nelson). In the said tweet, Yvonne Nelson talked about how sex was traded for everything in our part of the world including sex for grades.

The multiple award winning actress further stated in the post that girls were now exposing body parts on social media rather than covering themselves because it was what people want. The tweet read “Sex for grade! Sex for jobs! Sex for everything in our part of the world! Your brains don’t matter here. It’s the covered parts they want, oh wait these parts aren’t covered anymore… it’s free on social media. Will it ever change?”

Kiki Mordi referred to this post by the Actress and compared it to the her the photo she posted recently with the caption “This is how you know people just talk to talk.”

Kiki wasn’t impressed with the double standards of the actress because she was surprised that someone who was preaching against exposing body parts on social media a couple of months ago just to turn and practice what she talked against.

Shatta Wale assaults an upcoming artiste after taking his song. [video]

Shatta Movement has allegedly assaulted an upcoming artist and his manager after Shatta Wale was accused of doing wrong. In a video going viral on social media the artiste, who goes by the name, Kweku Smoke was spotted in a series of videos accusing the ‘Borjor’ hitmaker of beating him (Smoke) and his manager after they went to his house to settle a misunderstanding between them.

Kweku Smoke accused some Ghanaians of condoning evil when the truth was staring them in the face. He said people were insulting him and not even checking the facts to see if there was any truth to what he was saying. He started by saying in pidgin “some of we Ghanaians, we dey part people dey behave the way dem dey behave”.

It is unclear as to what led Shatta Wale to assault but it has something to do with Kweku Smoke’s new song “on dem”. According to him, SM fans were trying to deny the fact that he had had contact with Shatta Wale but he showed video evidence of Shatta Wale and him in a studio where Shatta was seen banging his head in appreciation to his song.

Smoke said that he was not accusing the SM boss for hype or for anything but rather what Shatta Wale did really hurt him. He further revealed that a “big person” approached him asked him to settle the issue between him and Shatta Wale and when he together with his manager went to Shatta Wale’s house, he [Shatta Wale]organized some thugs to beat his manager and him while Shatta Wale was recording it. He dared Shatta to post the video if he was a man.

In the video, the guy could be seen with a bandage on his left arm, a brace around his neck and a swollen left eye which was really difficult for him to fully open.

He also accused the Shatta Wale of damaging his Mercedez Benz and threatened to deal with Shatta Wale. “we all dey this country, we go see”.

Some people commented on social media that if what he was saying was true he should have reported it to the police rather than making a video and posting it to social media.

Kweku Smoke has a feature with Sarkodie on the track “Yedin”.

John Dumelo pledges to donate 50% of his salary to Ayawaso youth.

Actor John Dumelo has pledged to donate 50% of his first-year salary and bonuses he receives as a Member of Parliament to the youth of Ayawaso West as development aid.

This pledge came about after a twitter follower replied to a to post about his willingness to continue the projects he is embarking on when he wins the seat in 2020 of which Mr. Dumelo answered that if he did not continue after becoming an M.P in 2020, he was going to lose 2024 elections. Another Twitter user was not impressed with his answer and tweeted ” Not. Best reply “if I don’t.” That 4 years in office can create a generational fortune for you. Tell them if you don’t. In your first year, they should take all your allowance n salaries and use it to develop.

Meaning 4 years was enough for John Dumelo to amass all the wealth he can in office and therefore losing 2024 elections wouldn’t be a big blow to him and therefore dared the actor cum politician the give his first-year salary and allowances for development.

John Dumelo’s reply was to pledge to give 50% of his first-year salary and bonuses to the youth of Ayawaso as development and added that he really meant it.
