Reggie N Bollie slammed

Ghana since time immemorial has always been blessed with some wonderful talents who have over the cause of the decades made the nation proud in the world of Arts industry. Names like Osibisa, Rocky Dawuni and Sarkodie in recent times resonate through the world and bring pride to the Ghanaian.

While some stayed behind to nurture their talents and leave an everlasting legacy that would be foretold for decades to come, some simply sold their talent for traveling visas, vanished into the diaspora and were never to be heard again, whiles the few who later returned to the country and made an attempt to revive their career failed spectacularly.

We take a look at some wonderfully talented Ghanaians who in spite of all the fame and glory they enjoyed, decided to live as illegal immigrants in search of residency in other countries and are now out of sight or struggling to resurrect their careers.

BOB OKALA

No comedian is my 'co-equal' - Bob Okala claims
Once upon a time in the late 80s, through the 90s to early 2000s, Samuel Kwadwo Buabeng, popularly known as Bishop Bob Okala, was by a mile the finest and most popular comedian in Ghana.

There was hardly any comedy and concert that did not have him on bill. He dominated the screens for years and made people fall on the ground with laughter. He was the star of the once famous Key Soap Concert party which aired on GTV till the early 2000s. Bishop Okala to the surprise of many, left the shores of Ghana to live in Europe in the late 90s living behind all the fame and stardom he enjoyed. His departure according to many was as a result of some rape allegations leveled against him.

He later returned in the early 2000s after almost a decade of absence in a bid to revive his career. He got a few gigs and stared in a few series, most notably Barber and Shoe Shine Boys. However he found it hard to hit the stardom and limelight he had once enjoyed prior to his departure from the country. He passed on to eternity on 13th March 2016 after collapsing on stage during a Joy Daddy concert in the eastern regional capital, Koforidua.

Sarkodie, Yvonne Nelson, Stonebwoy, Others Express Support For Kwaw Kese’s Ambulance Rant

Rapper Kwaw Kese has received backing from colleagues in the Ghanaian entertainment industry on his rants about the state of leadership in the country.

A video posted via his Instagram account finds the self-professed crazy rapper lashing out at the New Patriotic Party government over its failure to improve health care issues in Ghana.

Kwaw Kese couldn’t believe that with all the stories of people dying due to lack of ambulances, the stories of hospitals without enough beds to take care of Ghanaians, the NPP is wasting money buying 275 buses for the party.

“It is stupidity and foolishness that a political party can buy 275 buses for its activities when the country is currently struggling with just 55 ambulances. God will continue punishing Ghana and our leaders must start dying one by one.” stated a visibly angry Kese in the video posted early this week.

His comments were supported by many including Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Yvonne Nelson, Captain Planet and D Cryme.
