Published

on

Begetter of the late Ghanaian performing act(Ebony Reigns), Nana Opoku Kwarteng has considered as obligatory; request and expect artiste manager and a member of defunct music group(Ruff & Smooth), Bullet hand over all properties, including the entire unreleased songs collections the late songstress is entitled to.

According to the father of the late reggae/dancehall songstress(Ebony Reigns), Artiste manager, born Ricky Osei Agyemang is not qualified for, by right be in possession of the properties belonging to the late singer, hence, the need to surrender any tangible holding that is owned by the late singer.

The demise of the late Songstress, Ebony Reigns generated a lot of indistinct chatter between father of the late artiste(Mr. Opoku Kwarteng) and her manager(Bullet), which derived a lot of lashing from entertainment critiques, music and showbiz fanatics, as the two entities were contemplating as to who owns the late singers properties.

Mr. Opoku Kwarteng made some wild allegations against the artiste manager, accusing him of mismanaging the finances of the late singer and also disrespecting him. He has accused Bullet of showing perverted attitude and not giving him the right account of Ebony’s monies. He also accused Bullet of sleeping with the late singer.

Meanwhile, speaking to radio host, Kwame Adjetia in an interview on Neat FM’s ”Entertainment Ghana”, Nana Opoku Kwarteng revealed that, he has amicably settled all unhealthy feuds with Chief Executive Officer of Ruff Town Records, Ricky Osei Agyemang(Bullet).

This comes at the back, after Artiste manager and a member of defunct music group(Ruff & Smooth) Bullet stated that, he is strongly disposed and volitionally inclined towards building a harmonious relationship; free from disputes with the father of late singer(Ebony Reigns), Mr. Opoku Kwarteng.

According to Mr. Opoku Kwarteng, he was hearty and touched by Bullet’s conducts, after the artiste manager and the one time musician rendered a befitting apology to him over how he treated him and his family after the demise of songstress, Ebony Reigns.

Nana Opoku Kwarteng therefore urged all Entertainment Critiques, Music fanatics and Ghanaians at large to bury all notions because Bullet together with him, have ceased all burning flames, explaining that, there are on good terms as he has forgiven the artiste manager for his ill mannered attitude.

First year memorial service for the late awards winning singer, Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, who performs as Ebony Reigns is believed to have been slated to occur on the latter days of the third month, March 2019 with the date yet to be released.

“Hungarian Gov’t Provides Grants For Creative Artists” – Sena Dagadu

Published

on

Ghanaian artiste based in Hungary, Sena Dagadu has said that unlike Ghana, the Hungarian government has set up a fund that supports its artists.

She made this revelation in an interview with AJ Sarpong on Citi TV’s ‘Hall of Fame.’

When asked how different the Hungarian music industry was from Ghana’s, she said the Hungarian government had instituted a special fund for people in the creative industry for different purposes.

“There is a system in Hungary where you can apply for government grants for different projects – be it a tour, be it an album, be it a joint project with different artistes or anything that is culture-related. It could be classical music, dance, theatre, and basically they have different things you can apply for during the year,” she revealed.

She also mentioned that the copyright system in Hungary is more functional that what obtains in Ghana.

“There is a strong copyright system whereby every radio or television play and commercial use of your music has monetary value to it so you actually have someone trying to protect your music and pay you for having it aired there. But for most of my musician friends I know that is hugely lacking,” she said.

Sena noted that even though most of the Ghanaian musicians do not get royalties as expected, she is aware measures are being put in place to make the situation better.

In Ghana, the government has announced plans to set up a creative arts fund for people on the creative sector.

The Creative Arts Bill, when passed, would make room for the initiation of the fund.

The President, Nana Akufo-Addo told Parliament during the third State of the Nation address that the passage of the Bill was in the offing.

“We have worked to finalise the Creative Arts Bill, leading to the setting up of the Creative Arts Fund. For the first time, in 2018, Government provided support to the Creative Arts Council, and the Creative Arts Masterclass, to build capacity of Creative Arts practitioners, has also commenced,” he noted.

This was one of the manifesto promises of the New Patriotic Party.

Sena Dagadu became popular on the Ghanaian music scene when she was featured on VVIP’s ‘Skolom.’

Some of her musical works are ‘Extra Large,’ ‘Yo Chale,’ ‘Pass it On,’ ‘Pressure,’ and ‘You No Ready.’
