Fancy Gadam has said his loyal fans are to be credited for his winning the Song of the Year award at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).

The Northern Region based musician, beat the One Corner hitmaker, Patapaa, and 12 others to win the award.

Scores of Patapaa fans have since accused the organisers of cheating their man out of the award.

Patapaa himself stormed out of the auditorium after the award went in favour of Fancy Gadam, later claiming he was totally cheated.

But speaking on the AM Show on the Joy News channel Monday, Fancy Gadam, born Mujahid Ahmed Bello said he thoroughly deserved the award.

“My fans voted for me to win,” he said.

I know that any other artiste I compete with will go do down because my fan base is too loyal. You will think you are big but I will come and win over you, he added in pidgin.

It has been revealed that he picked up the award with some 88,000 votes, beating the closest contender who came with 10,000, by some 70,000 votes.

“Since last year I picked up one and this year two, next year will be four,” he stated happily.

JOSELYN DUMAS UNVEILED AS BRAND AMBASSADOR FOR JAGUAR [PHOTOS]

Published

on

On Saturday 14th April, Alliance Motors Ghana, the exclusive distributor of Land Rover and Jaguar in Ghana, presented a beachside launch for Jaguar’s new smart compact SUV, the E-PACE hosted by Joy FM’s Drive Time presenter, Lexis Bill.

The luxury auto dealership also announced the E-PACE brand ambassador, Joselyn Dumas during the event held at Sandbox Beach Club to over 150 guests which included Jaguar loyalists, media, influencers and young professionals from companies such as Barclays Bank, A&C Mall Development, Access Bank, Urban Grill/YOLO Experiences and Trasacco Homes.

During the launch, guests had the exclusive opportunity to view two Jaguar E-PACE vehicles which were strategically placed within the venue, virtually experience driving the new Jaguar E-PACE in augmented reality with the Point & Play app and pose with the luxury SUV in an interactive photo booth. Complimentary cocktails were provided by Remy Martin and electronics from EZone were on display to showcase E-PACE videos. Joselyn Dumas pulled the lucky winner of the raffle for an all expense paid trip to attend a Jaguar racing event at the Jaguar Land Rover Headquarters in South Africa.

”The E-PACE is an exciting new breed of Jaguar and we wanted the launch to reflect its fresh personality. We chose to introduce the E-PACE in a lifestyle setting rather than a traditional showroom to attract a new audience, which matches the E-PACE persona of modernity, youth, fun and elegance”, says Martin Madsen, General Manager of Alliance Motors Ghana.

”I am excited to be associated and be the face of this beautiful car. As the first person to drive and own the E-PACE in Ghana, I can confidently say that the E-PACE is here to serve the purpose of luxury, comfort and performance. This SUV is well equipped with safety and infotainment tech, has a very spacious and practical interior and it is simply fun to drive!”, adds Joselyn Dumas, an actress, media personality and brand ambassador of the Jaguar E-PACE.

The Jaguar E-PACE is a five-seat compact SUV that packs the design and performance of a Jaguar sports car into a spacious, practical and connected all-wheel-drive vehicle. Trademark Jaguar driving characteristics and stirring design put the brand’s sports car DNA in a practical design packed with advanced technologies. Every E-PACE is equipped with all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission, and high-output models are also available with active driveline – a technological first for Jaguar.

The E-PACE is available with Standard, S, SE and HSE specification packs, in core or R-Dynamic body styles. Customers have a choice of two diesel engines, with outputs of 110kW and 132kW, and two petrol engines, producing 183kW and 221kW, respectively. All new Jaguar cars come with a five-year care plan: a five-year/100,000km service plan and a five-year/150,000km warranty, as standard.

”Jaguar has now launched the E-PACE in North America, Europe and sub-Sahara African markets. With the Atlantic ocean as the backdrop combined with a curated mix of local and international personalities and professionals at the Ghana launch, we created a truly unique and Ghanaian feel for the event. We are excited about the possibilities for the E-PACE and the continued growth of the Jaguar brand in this market”, adds Madsen.

Alliance Motors current in-house Jaguar promotion makes it easy to become a E-PACE owner with 40% deposit due at signing and the difference tailored over the remaining 36 months for those who qualify. Customers can customize their own Jaguar E-PACE using the online configurator on the Jaguar website.

Yes, actress Joselyn Dumas is enjoying her ambassadorial duties for car company, Alliance Motors.

She recently stepped out in her new car looking hot like a tamale, well like Mariah Carey. Check it out.

Meanwhile her JCD Foundation has installed Security Cameras as a donation to the Children’s Ward of the Korlebu Teaching Hospital to help reduce reports of the crime levels at the hospital and to protect the safety of the patients, their families and staff of the hospital.

Go girl!

You’re ‘king’ but Stonebwoy is sitting on your head – David Oscar to Shatta Wale

Published

on

Comedian and musician, David Oscar has reiterated that Stonebwoy is far better than Shatta Wale musically and as such, the self-acclaimed dancehall king should respect the ‘Dirty Enemies’ hit maker.

Speaking on Daybreak Hitz, Thursday, monitored by abrantepa.com, Oscar said Shatta Wale is yet to achieve the feat Stonebwoy has.

Organizers of the International Reggae & World Music Awards (IRAWMA) honoured Shatta Wale on March 18, 2018 for his contributions to Reggae in Ghana and at the global level but Oscar opines that neither the recognition nor any other makes him better than Stonebwoy.

“When it comes to Reggae/dancehall, Stonebwoy has a BET; you don’t have one. You’re talking about IRAWMAs. Who doesn’t know that BET is bigger than the IRAWMAs? Let’s face facts” he argued.

The comedian known for not mincing words further jabbed Shatta Wale for overly bragging about his wealth.

“You are a king but someone is seated on you when it comes to the genre so respect that. You’re always boasting that you’re rich. If you’re rich, go buy BET” he stated.

Stonebwoy was adjudged Best International Act: Africa at the 2015 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.

The dancehall artiste beat competition from Ghanaian counterpart Sarkodie, AKA (South Africa), Fally Ipupa (DR Congo), Sauti Sol (Kenya), The Soil (South Africa), Wizkid (Nigeria) and Yemi Alade (Nigeria).

He earned another nomination in the 2017 edition but lost.

Stonebwoy has also won the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year at the VGMAs on four consecutive occasions (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
