Speaking exclusively to 3news.com, Akos said she intends to embark on more of such projects to support deprived children who are in need of basic necessities to enhance their education.

Fashion has definitely evolved over the years as this picture above clearly tells how much difference one can spot between men of the game then and now.

Football maestro and Black Stars legend Abedi Ayew Pele, who used to ply his trade with Olympique Marseille in France, is spotted in this photo with national teammate Emmanuel Armah ‘Senegal’ and brother Kwame Ayew.

These men back then had no competition and would have been described as the fashion men in Ghana football.

The nation salutes its heroes who put the country on the pinnacle of football locally and internationally.

These three great men of football have really shown their swagger and must be seen and remembered for their great sense of fashion.

Wisa’s Lawyer to file for no case for lack of evidence

By | Showbiz | No Comments

wisa

Lawyer for hiplife artiste, Eugene Ashie, aka Wisa Greid, has indicated that he will file a submission of no case for his client who is being accused for displaying his penis on stage.

According to the attorney, Mr. Jerry Avernogbor, the prosecution for the past one year had not been able to present any substantial prosecution witness to collaborate their case against his client.

Mr Avernogbor made his intention known when Ms Jessica Opare Saforo, Programmes Manager of Citi FM, an Accra based radio station who was the Master of Ceremony for the Concert testified before the court.

Ms Saforo in her evidence told the court that she did not see Wisa remove his penis on stage. According to her, after introducing Wisa to the audience she went back stage hence did not see Wisa remove his penis.

Answering questions under cross examination, Ms Saforo, maintained that she did not see Wisa displaying his penis.

Meanwhile prosecution says it would bring another witness who was out of the jurisdiction when given last opportunity to do so to testify in the case.

Inspector Judith Asante prayed for a long adjournment as the next witness was outside the jurisdiction and would be back by that time.

The court adjourned the matter to February 8.

The Court, presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, at the last sitting gave the Prosecution the last opportunity to produce their witness; otherwise the Court would be compelled to close the case.

Wisa, of Ekikimi fame, is being held for allegedly exposing his penis while performing at the Accra International Conference Centre on December 24, 2015.

He has, however, denied a charge of gross indecent exposure and is on a GH¢ 8,000.00 bail with one surety.

Prosecution said on December 25, 2015, the Accra Regional Police was alerted over a nude video posted on the internet from an unknown source, in which Wisa intentionally exposed his penis, while performing live on stage.

According to the prosecutor, Detective Inspector Judith B. Asante said the Police contacted the managers of Ashe to produce him at the Regional Police Headquarters for investigations, which they did.

The prosecution said investigations into the matter disclosed that on December 24, Airtel Communications Company and Citi FM, an Accra-based radio station, organised an event dubbed: “December to Remember,” which included the accused as a guest artiste.

In the course of the show, the accused, while dancing with a female dancer identified as Monica Kumadeh, suddenly removed his penis out of his pair of jeans and began to caress the buttocks of the dancer.

At the age of 8, she was sent to the National Academy of Music, where she also learned to play the violin and cello.

Stephanie later started developing her writing skills and began writing and collaborating with other writer/artistes including the likes of Andy Hill (Bucks Fizz), Terry Britton (Tina Turner) Danny Schogger (Celine Dion), Wayne Vaughn (Earth Wind and Fire), Rob Davis (Kylie Minogue), and Stevie Wonder among others.

Speaking exclusively to 3news.com, the stunning musician-cum-actress described Stephanie as a woman with an outstanding voice which blows her mind.

“I can say she is the only successful female soul singer in Ghana and at her age she still looks hot with 5 kids and her successful marriage is every woman’s dream.

“I love her personality and the way she carries herself and one thing that blows my mind is her outstanding voice, she said with a smile”.

She recalled the first time she came into contact with Stephanie during the Vodafone Icon competition some six years ago in which she placed 3rd, describing her as a woman with “soul”.

“I first came into contact with her 6 years ago when she was a judge at Vodafone Icons season one Divas edition and as a judge she wasn’t an easy one but I realised she has ‘soul’ and she said things as they were and was never bias.

“She made us know what was right and wrong and made sure we did our best, making her a woman to look out for and a person to look up to which makes me take so much inspiration from her.”

Nana Frema however did not forget the yellow gown given to her by Stephanie which she wore for the grand finale of the competition.

“Back in the competition, my weight affected the wardrobe which she thought wasn’t right so she promised to buy me a cosset from London which she did.

“I had even forgotten about it [the promise], but then she proved herself loyal and gave me a yellow gown which I wore on the season’s final as a gift”.

Nana Frema has a single titled ‘Sweet Boy’ which she released in 2015.
