Ghana: Nigerians planned to disgrace us - Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Kumi Guitar, Becca, King Promise, Felt Unwelcome During Performance in Nigeria

Born David Kwaku Effum Boafo, professionally known as Obibini has stated emphatically that Nigerians poor reception towards Ghanaian artistes who performed at the recently Zylofon Invasion Concert in Nigeria was all planned.

The Invasion Concert saw performances from Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Kumi Guitar, Becca, King Promise, among others. However, despite the spectacular performances put forth by the Ghanaian artistes, the auditorium could be linked to the cemetery.

So, it’s not surprising that Obibini who was part of the performing acts on the night has posited that Nigerians who attended the show planned to disgrace the Ghanaian artistes.

Obibini also expressed shock over the event goer’s attitude of keeping mute when Shatta Wale was performing ‘Hosanna’ single but cheered Burna Boy who featured on the song when he stormed the stage to join Shatta Wale. In the voice of Obibini, whatever attitude put forth by the Nigerians who attended the show was planned.

No music in Liberia’s six-year tourism plan

In just over a half-decade, Liberian tourism could become a million-dollar industry. But the country's music scene might not be contributing to the industry.  The set-up to bring Liberia's plan to fruition was recently made public by Lance Gbagonyon, the country’s Deputy Minister of Cultural Affairs and Tourism.
The target, said Gbagonyon, is 15 million international visitors by 2023. The potential boost to Liberia’s economy is put between $20 to $40 million.
“My goal is to promote the tourism industry as one of the economic pillars for growth and job creation, and I’m working around the clock to make it a reality,” he said.
“The first priority area under the six-year strategic plan focuses on improving and persevering heritage, eco- and wildlife tourism structures. For heritage tourism, we are going to reconstruct the home of President Joseph Jenkins Roberts, Africa’s first democratically elected president, which stands on Ashmun Street and still has its original look of the…

John McCain, War Hero, Senator, Presidential Contender, Dies at 81

John S. McCain, the proud naval aviator who climbed from depths of despair as a prisoner of war in Vietnam to pinnacles of power as a Republican congressman and senator from Arizona and a two-time contender for the presidency, died on Saturday at his home in Arizona. He was 81.
According to a statement from his office, Mr. McCain died a 4:28 p.m. local time.  He had suffered from a malignant brain tumor, called a glioblastoma, for which he had been treated periodically with radiation and chemotherapy since its discovery in 2017.

Despite his grave condition, he soon made a dramatic appearance in the Senate to cast a thumbs-down vote against his party's drive to repeal the Affordable Care Act. But while he was unable to be in the Senate for a vote on the Republican tax bill in December, his endorsement was crucial, though not decisive, in the Trump administration's lone legislative triumph of the year.

Female Agriculturist Cultivates 15 Acres of Farmland in Bong

By Marcus Malayea in Gbarnga City, Bong County Women account for eighty-five percent of the agricultural labor force of Liberia, playing an important role in the management of food production. Despite the critical position and contribution of women in agriculture, women are often discriminated against, preventing them from acquiring ownership, access to and control of land. In Liberia, agriculture constitutes a significant fragment of the country’s economy.
