Moesha Boduong Wasn’t Truthful but Many Ladies Use Sex to Make a Living; Any Solutions?

On the night of April 11, 2018, after people deleted their trolls against Real Madrid, a video surfaced online of a Moesha Boudong CNN interview. I didn’t need Baba Fakunle to foretell me that the video would erupt and trend in the morning. This was because of the statements she made in the interview. The actress and model without fear of retrogression generalized that, due to the economy, ladies of her age can’t be independent, and need the assistance of rich men to be able to make ends meet. I quote her words vividly: “It’s like our economy is just such in a way that you just need someone to take care of you. You can’t make enough money as a woman here. Because even when you want to get an apartment, in Ghana, you pay 2 years in advance. And I just started working, where will I get money to pay for an apartment for 2 years?

 

Now for those who don’t know, this interview was held on a programme on CNN known as “Sex and Love Around the World.” On this show, the hostess, Christiane Amanpour travels the world covering global affairs, getting personal with women by inquiring about their intimate lives. So it’s not out of track for Moesha, well known for exposing her voluptuous body, to land such an interview.

Social media has been divided into 2 parts. One side bashing her for painting Ghana black, and not giving a true reflection of what goes on here. The other side also calls Ghanaians hypocrites, and testify that it’s the reality she was bold to voice out on an international platform.

Moesha Boduong

Honestly speaking, what Moesha said is not the truth. We all know a lot of ladies who work their asses of to make ends meet, are self-reliant and independent. Those females actually carry a majority of the populace. However, that doesn’t change the fact that a significant percentage of Ghanaian ladies sleep around to make ends meet. I lived in the community of University of Ghana, Legon for 4 years. I saw ladies in sexually-appealing shorts everyday standing beside their sugar daddies’ cars. Others got dropped on campus on Sunday and Monday mornings.

Everyone is busily throwing insults at Moesha for her statement, but none is thinking about how we can empower women to be independently free. If you’ve not experienced it before, or tried putting yourself in their shoes, you may easily condemn the act of sleeping around for money. When in uni, ladies from not-so-rich backgrounds had to keep up on appearances, pay their hostel fees, feed themselves, and have an enjoyable life on campus. After graduating, everyone chases independence, so they want to live alone, and choose their own path. That way, the expenses are high. So they think of it as instead of laying with broke guys who may eventually cheat or break their hearts, why don’t they go in for rich men who can suit their bills.

List of Female Enterpreneurs in Ghana

Inasmuch as this analogy sounds legit, it is wrong. First of all, you have to accept that in this life, you are on your own. If you understand that, you’ll learn to live within your means. If you’re not satisfied, find good ways to make money for yourself. Your sisters abroad are schooling and working at the same time. You can do it, maybe, your problem is that you’ll receive less salary. Remember, half a loaf is better than none. Venture into entrepreneurship. Even if you fail, you’ll learn a lot along the way. Depending on someone for support only makes you lazy. It suggests that the greatest asset you have is your vagina.

Don’t trade your vaginal pride for cedis. The greatest weapon you have is an active and rational mind. If your counterpart females are able to have small startups, draft proposals, work 9 to 5, etc., and make a living off it, what stops you from doing same? Yes, the economy makes it tough, but when life gives you lemons, you squeeze lemonades. It’s better that way than using your vagina for barter trade.

Thanks to Moesha for bringing the discussion up. If I wrote this article last 2 days you may have not read it. What’s fulfilling is a Ghana of powerful and hardworking ladies, who double up as good parents and wives. Let’s get it!

Bloody Mary

My eyes were barely closed and I could feel the pain in my abdomen, a very sharp one of course. My cover cloth took most of my strength, as I tightly held on to it. Being put in a freezer was nothing compared to the cold I felt, and I could not think for myself again. After turning unto different sides of my body countless times, I was finally tired. I couldn’t move anymore.

My legs felt weak and my arms could barely do anything than grip firmly to my bed and cloth. I was in severe pain, the kind of pain that dragged life out of you. I needed something however I couldn’t figure out what. I could do nothing.

Suddenly my thoughts went dark and all I could think of were regrets.

What if I never met Jane?

What would it have cost to let the championship go?

I was an athlete in my final year in school with just one term to go, when my friend Jane introduced me to this man. I had won my  national race after beating all contenders from the various regions and I was due to travel for the national championship in Europe. So why now?

What did I do wrong?

What did I do to deserve this?

It was until then I realised my eyes were short of tears as I had been crying since morning and I was very thirsty. I stretched to reach for the sachet of water on the table by my bed but I couldn’t reach it.  I was so weak. I had to use my last strength to drive myself to take the water and quench my dire thirst.

Before I could reach the sachet, my thighs felt wet and my bed was soaked, I raised the cloth to see why, and all I could see was blood! So much blood!!. Fear struck me and I started shaking!

The drug Jane gave me didn’t go well. I perceived immediately. Oh God!..what had I done?

The bed was so soaked, it stained the floor. My hands and body were so stiff that it felt as if I was frozen. I should have told him I was pregnant. I should have not listened to Jane.

I should have put my four-month old baby first before my championship.

Now I can’t go back, I’m stuck in this gruesome mire of life and there’s no escape. What lies ahead is one I won’t think of. I’m stuck with regrets. I shed tears and wept. All of a sudden, I missed life with everyone and every single moment. Thinking about the good times and the bad ones, giving myself another chance over and over again. Living myself through my regrets over and over again.

The next thought was to kill myself by finishing the concoction of grounded glass and herbs which I had tried using to terminate my pregnancy. How could I have thought of this?

Is Jane that wicked? Or she was just being a good friend?

She gave me an empty glass bottle to grind into tiny pieces and mix with some weird herbs she had picked from a bush nearby, and drink. Desperate times call for much reasoning. If you’re in a confusing state or situation, don’t rush on decisions and be very careful of the only option you’ve got.

My strength was gone and my life was being squeezed out of me slowly by the pain. I was almost gone. I am dying. I started imagining what my child could have become, maybe something far greater than my championship or 5th gold honors… what a world we live in!

“Mary!!”..”Mary!!”…that was my mother calling, she had just come back from church and didn’t know what I had done. “Get up Mary!, you’ve been sleeping all day”, she said. I couldn’t respond. She dragged the cloth off me and was astounded by the blood soaked sheets that spilled all over the floor. “Jesus!” she screamed.

When you want to take a decision in life, think through it first. Sometimes in life, everything seems down and confused. You can’t make head from tail and all your thoughts become blurred. You have no idea whatsoever of what to do. Just kneel and pray, ask for guidance, talk to someone about it and don’t fear your failure, for your biggest failure is fear.

The tiny million pieces of glass were cutting my womb and stomach slowly and painfully that I could feel every single cut in my abdomen. Thick red blood with some whitish discharge was oozing from my genitalia and was dripping off my thighs to the hospital floor, as I sat on the wheel chair. I could hear every drop hit against the floor tiles like a not properly closed kitchen tap with water dripping. My legs were trembling and numb. I was so scared and it got worst after taking my hands off between my thighs and beheld my blood-stained palms. It was all over my hands. I was lost in a world of regret. I could hear nothing or see nothing.

Am I dead?

God has a plan for each and every one of us. You might sin and get away with it but don’t think God is dead, he just has better plans for you and he must see you through. He gives as a chance that others would wish for, to fulfil his purpose for us.

If not for God, I would have been dead!

I ASKED MYSELF, WHO’S FAULT IS IT?

I recovered after months of hospitalization and I appreciate life better now. I lost my baby and womb, but I still have life.

We only have one life so, live it right!

Akoo Nana, Gemini & Four Other Artistes Missing in Action

 We’ve not been so much into 2018, but some artistes in the Ghanaian music scene are making waves whilst others are missing in action. To maintain relevance in the industry qualifies as one of the most difficult tasks in the game. This is probably because in Ghana, a musician has to keep dropping songs to keep his/her name in the discussion. So once an artiste goes off the public scene to perfect his/her craft, or for whatever reason, such person is considered to have fallen off. We take a look at some of these artistes who have been off the radar this year.

Born Darlington Kwesi Agyekum, D-Cryme, the CEO of Twi Pop Records has for some time now not been active. After the hit single “Koko Sakora” which featured Sarkodie he later released another tune titled “I Swear” in January 2018, but didn’t really receive that much attention. Thereafter, we haven’t really heard much about him. I believe he’s cooking something delicious for us.

Second on our list, Eazzy, whose real name is Mildred Ashong has also for some time now not really being active in the music scene after her song with the self-acclaimed Dancehall king Shatta Wale, titled “Power.” Eazzy d’first lady, please we miss your voice wai.

Next is Akoo Nana, the Kasoa youth president. He has also been missed by his fans in Kasoa, around Ghana and the world. After his single with Shatta Wale in 2017 “Super Love” and also some controversies with Musican Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), we haven’t heard from him again.

Gemini Orleans has also been missing for some time now. Although the closest he has got to fame is “I’ll Do, Don’t Do”, it seems as though he’s totally giving up now. No one has been bold and skilled enough to take up his seat as fastest Ghanaian English rapper. In my humble opinion, I believe he should load up more bullets… the game needs his fire.

Donzy Chaka after you gave us “Club” to drink and taking our “Heart Away” in 2017, you forgot us, right? We miss Donzy’s exceptional storytelling, and excellent lyricism. How he weaves to appeal to the local ears isn’t common.

Finally, on our list is Michael Kesse Frimpong better known by his stage name Kesse. After winning the fourth season of TV3 mentor and also partook in season two of MTN’s Project Fame West Africa and was the second runner up to the Nigerian singer Chidinma, he hasn’t really blown up to most corners of the country, that’s after dropping some singles with Sarkodie and Appietus has not really been active.

We await your art, we miss your sonic remedy. Please get back to the studio and feed our hunger.

Atigya Makes History With “Aprool Fool” Stage Comedy

Comedy has gradually found space in the Ghanaian entertainment front. However, mostly, it’s stand-up comedy, short skits and recorded clips which make waves. Atigya, a multiple award-winning comedian, who’s a product of University of Ghana was smart and bold enough to put together a stage comedy show.

The event which took place on the first day of April was dubbed “Aprool Fool”, in line with the annual occasion, April Fool observed globally. The play which was produced and written by Atigya, and directed by Ebow Barton-Odro was staged at the E.T.S Drama Studio sited at University of Ghana (Legon). The first, as planned happened from 6 to 8 pm, followed by the second, i.e. 8 to 10pm which is two hours duration for every play.

The crowd were excited for the smooth run and adequate planning of the show. The attendants spoke about the good time they experienced right from the studio to their various destinations. Indeed, history was made that night. The turnout was massive.

The whole story was about a rich man who wanted true love for her only daughter. As the play was on going, the crowd couldn’t control their joy as they laughed their heart out to some funny statements delivered by the cast .The exhilirating performance attracted viewers till the seats in the venue couldn’t contain the viewers, leading to some people standing to watch.

Hopefully, Atigya shall give us more of such refreshing experiences. Comedy is necessary. It kills depression, and can solve numerous emotional ills. Atigya and his crew do it like none other.

Flowking Stone Puts Up Stunning Performance at Y FM Kumasi’s Ankaase Lakeside Easter Jam

Easter in the Garden City is a great deal, but it’s being quite a while since a major event at an unusual location such as a lakeside happened. Of course, Kumasi can’t have such a historical event without their “king of rap.” Billed to perform as one of the main acts for the programme, prior to Flowking Stone’s performance he was given a warm welcome by his die-hard fans, amidst cheers.

 

Re-echoing his stance as the King of rap music in Kumasi and one of Ghana’s biggest musicians, he thrilled a mammoth crowd with back to back hits including Opana, Me Kyeakyea, Fire Bon Dem, Go Low, just to mention a few. In fact, he had the audience singing and rapping along hits from way back; from One Gallon, Simple… you name it. Performing to a very hyper and responsive audience he just couldn’t help than to out a great show. Also billed to perform at the event were Yaa Pono, Lil Win and Eno Barony.

Deadman, Alive!

Suddenly I lost control of myself and was being manhandled by a strong force that took me high up regardless of my body position and crushed me down with great force on the surface. I finally lost my reasoning. Everything became dark and all I could see was nothing. I tried getting on my feet, only to realise there was nothing beneath, then the thoughts came running, where am I?

My hands touched nothing and my feet felt loose, my eyes could not see and my nose could not breathe.

At this point my mind was blank and helpless, rendering my entire being clueless. Then slowly, I began to lose hold of the grasp of air in my lungs and as well the firm grab of my nose and mouth. Water started gushing in slowly until I could hold no more. It gradually filled my throat and nostrils, and I was struggling vigorously to catch some breath or get above the surface.

During the struggle all I could see were images of those I hate and think hate me, ones that always brought me pain and suffering. Ones that never support even when I grief for help, and ones all my life have brought pain and hatred, the bad times and the terrible moments. As I continued struggling my limbs got fatigued and I struggled less with my lungs being filled halfway with water, I realized my strength was gone and I could fight no more.

I did not give up but my strength was gone…

Immediately I was sober and sodden in regret and sorrow. I could not hold on any longer. My senses were all dead and I could do nothing for myself. I was so exhausted and couldn’t even afford to blink if I had the chance. Then I decided to give up. But just before I was gone, in a split second, all the memories of great moments I had with loved ones and friends came embracing before I departed.

I saw the face of my mum and dad when I was a kid, I recalled wonderful moments I never would have if I was normal. I saw the faces of each person I love, my family laughing and sharing experiences, my friends misbehaving and quarreling, classmates teasing and sharing ideas; the children on the field, then joy in church. All these beautiful things were bidding farewell right in my face and I was ready to go a happy man, everything went dark and I knew it was time, suddenly I saw her face, clearer than all the other memories and faces I had seen…she was the love of my life. She said nothing and did nothing but just kept smiling.

I really missed her.

But suddenly she had a sad look and I knew it was because I was leaving.

I wanted to right my wrongs,

I wanted to apologise,

I wanted to say goodbye,

Just what I needed, an Iorta of Hope,

The beneath my feet never felt and the pillar that was missing in the vacuum my swinging arms didn’t grab…

I breathed heavily with my last strength and I pushed hard only to feel a warm arm holding me and dragging me towards a very bright light, the light was brighter than day and warmer. All the water in my lungs came running out and my chest was loose,

My first breath was cooler

My limbs felt free and I was alive

I opened my eyes and I saw the skies. It was more beautiful than I ever saw it…

I saw the people around me and they were much more fascinating than I thought they were…

I felt myself again and I appreciated it…

I was a dead man and I’m now alive!

The feeling of a just delivered child we never remember or know.

I was saved by the beautiful people and times I had,

I was saved by love.

 

Life is beautiful, it’s where you belong!
