The above question always comes to mind whenever the process for an edition of the Ghana Music Awards commences. For many years, I have been asking myself, really, who has the right to determine which song is more popular in Ghana? It is very tedious for a musician to walk into a studio, book and record a song, not forgetting the numerous problems they go through 9

In 2008, with an excellent track record of economic stability and growth, and with original welfare policies, Nana Addo still 3

March 13, 2015 12:04 AM Eno bi charter house, ebi cheating house

His reason for being that deplorably intransigent, shamelessly pursuing his corrupt practices with vigour 4
