Beefs among showbiz personalities healthy for industry - Patoranking


Nigerian musician Patoranking has stated that ‘beefs’ among entertainment personalities are healthy for the industry.

In an interview with Lexis Bill and Joselyn Dumas on Drive Time on Joy FM, the musician, who is currently in Ghana to promote his latest track, ‘So Different,' explained that ‘beefs’ keep personalities on their toes and pushes them to better their craft.

“It’s always good to have a competitive system running. It keeps everybody in check and it makes you not to feel comfortable. But it shouldn’t be more than what it is. Even if we’re doing it, we shouldn’t take it the other way round or outside the context of music,” he said.

However, he cautioned people not to take it to the extreme.

“Beefs are part of the industry but let’s not take away the spirit of music, let’s not kill the passion.”

The ‘Girlio’ hitmaker also revealed that he is still single and stated that women are a distraction to his music career at the moment.

“I’m single. If I take off my shirt right now, you’ll see a big hashtag tattooed on my chest and it says career focus so for now, it is what it is. There’s a saying in Nigeria that ‘if you know where you’re coming from, you definitely know where you’re going to’. I won’t lie to you, I have suffered and so women are a distraction for now,” Patoranking said.

He also commented on his colleague musician Davido’s public display of love for his girlfriend Chioma. According to him, he sees nothing wrong with professing your love publicly.

“There is nothing wrong with that, we all love differently. There are many entrances to the mall or shop; we all want to buy something. So the most important thing is happiness,” he noted.

When asked if he would not mind buying a Porsche car for his girlfriend, he said, “I drive a Porsche, I bought myself a Porsche last year but I’ll buy Joselyn Dumas a Porsche pen.”

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
