Before the court hearings in a case where investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas is set to testify against former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi, Anas refuses to show his face to Nyantakyi and his attorneys in chambers.
Due to worries about his safety, Anas declined the prosecution’s offer to testify.
Justice Marie Louise Simmons of Ghana’s High Court on Wednesday ordered Anas Aremeyaw Anas to testify in open court during Kwesi Nyantakyi’s trial.
However, the court let Anas to pose as someone else during his evidence in order to allay the journalist’s security worries. Anas had already been seen in public wearing his beads as a mask, so Justice Simmons approved the prosecution’s request for him to testify in part. She said that it would not be a problem for Anas to testify while wearing his mask in public.
The statement from Anas’ private investigation company, Tiger Eye P.I., emphasized the risks involved in revealing his identity to Nyantakyi.
The declaration stated, “As much as Anas is willing and ready to testify for the prosecution, doing so under the condition specified by the court presents a clear and present danger to his security and safety, especially because of the issues chronicled above.”
Accordingly, he should deny the invitation to put his life in danger and decline the invitation to divulge his identify to the accused person in the courtroom or anywhere else.
Tiger Eye supports Anas’ argument and asserts that it is right and prudent to err on the side of caution in order to prevent any prospective attack on one of its investigators.
The company went on to support Anas’s argument, saying that vigilance is required to prevent any assaults on their investigators.
The trial of Nyantakyi is related to the release of the divisive film “Number 12: When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm.”
I went through depression that nearly took my life – Evang. Amy Newman
Evangelist Amy Newman, a well-known gospel performer, has disclosed that she had despair that almost claimed her life.
The singer of the hit song “Okamafo Jesus” claimed in an interview with Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the host of Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show, that she was only experiencing death during that time.
She adds that she had to experience spiritual deliverance before being saved.
“Four years ago, I traveled quite a bit; that was my relaxation. I suffered from depression during those four years and only saw death. If I locked myself in the room, the only thought on my mind would be to die, she said.
A new song called “Makoma Ahye Ma” was released by evangelist Amy Newman.
Amy claims that after she overcame her despair, the new track’s release was precipitated.
“I wrote this song, Makoma Ahye Ma, in 2009, but after going through a depressive episode, I chose to release it as a way to express my gratitude to God.”
She continues by saying that the new song has been posted on all of her social media accounts, and she encourages everyone to go check it out.
Camidoh features Vybz Kartel, Miss Lafamilia, and DJ Lara Fraser for new Summer anthem “Taxi Man”
A fantastic summer anthem called “Taxi Man” was released by Ghanaian afropop singer and songwriter Camidoh. Download and stream “Taxi Man” here:
“Taxi Man,” a song co-produced by Ghana’s Streetbeatz and the renowned UK producer Toddla T, also features verses from the legendary Jamaican dancehall artist Vybz Kartel, the UK’s rising star Miss LaFamilia, and the Grammy-winning DJ and producer DJ Lara Fraser. Each of these artists contributes their distinct and unmatched performance style to the song.
The Ghanaian BET Award candidate for Afropop’s distinctive R&B and afrobeats rhythms are what give “Taxi Man” its distinctive dancehall and afrobeats mix. The song is accompanied by a beautiful portrait-style music video created by Amane Akbaraly. The video, which was shot at the renowned Zap Studios in Camberwell, London, documents a day spent with DJ Lara Fraser, Camidoh, and Miss LaFamilia.
With nominations for the BET Awards, AFRIMA, and The Headies, as well as praise for his debut project L.I.T.A., Camidoh has been on the rise. He made his debut on the Ghanaian music scene in 2018 after signing with the independent label Grind Don’t Stop (GDS) and releasing his debut track, “For My Lover.” The single and its remix generated excitement about him as the next big thing, which led to the release of his debut effort, the six-track EP known as Contigency Plan (CP), to rapturous reviews.
The viral smash tune “Sugarcane,” which Camidoh debuted in December, was his big break, though. When the chart-topping “Sugarcane” remix with King Promise, Mayorkun, and Darkoo was released in April 2022, it propelled Camidoh to stardom and made him one of the most sought-after African artists of the year. To further broaden his appeal throughout Africa and beyond, he released the mini album “Sugarcane EP” and the notable singles “Kaba” and “Slow” after the big single.
Early this year, he joined the exclusive Golden Club of Boomplay, Africa’s largest music streaming and download service, after becoming the second Ghanaian artist to attain and surpass the milestone of 100 million streams.

I’m glad that everyone is picking up my book. After the release of her book, Yvonne Nelson talks for the first time.
Yvonne Nelson, an actress and novelist from Ghana, has expressed her happiness over the positive reception to her memoir, “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson.”
Yvonne Nelson highlighted in an exclusive interview with Giovani Caleb on 3FM that the demand for her novel has outstripped expectations and caused a lack of accessible copies during her book signing event at Silverbird Cinemas.
Since there aren’t enough books available right now, I’m glad Ghana is reading. I’m glad that everyone is reading, she said.
When questioned about the possibility of making a film version of her novel, Yvonne Nelson said she did not see herself taking on the position of producer for the endeavor.
“I don’t think I’ll be the one to produce it, but I feel great that people are reading,” she said, gesturing to the audience.
She didn’t give specifics, but her response hints that there may be plans or negotiations for a movie version.
Her tense relationship with her mother and the unanswered concerns about her father’s identity are two major themes in Yvonne Nelson’s memoir; nevertheless, she refuses to comment on how her mother reacted to the book and the disclosures in it.
She replied, “I think she’s reading it too, and I think everyone else is reading, so it’s good.
On Apple’s Memoirs and Biographies list, “I am Not Yvonne Nelson,” which explores her personal journey and illuminates the truths of the celebrity world, is presently in the top spot.
Yvonne Nelson also expressed her happiness at the book’s popularity, saying, “We are number 1 on Apple Memoirs and Biographies so it’s good, I’ve got people reading and that’s good.”
Plans to refill “I Am Not Yvonne Nelson” have been made in reaction to the book’s resounding success.
Yvonne Nelson stressed her dedication to enabling universal access to her memoir by revealing that extra copies will be made available at the University of Ghana bookstore.
“By Friday we are going to get more and send them to the University of Ghana bookstore, I gave them copies and it got finished in thirteen minutes, all over Ghana we’ll make sure we supply to all the bookstores,” said Yvonne to Giovani Caleb.
The ‘Princess Tyra’ actress hasn’t discussed her memoir since it was published on Sunday, but she chose not to mention the subjects and people she mentioned in the compelling book.
