Gospel musician Brother Sammy has rendered an unqualified apology to the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) following his claim of having a cure for a number of diseases including HIV, asthma, gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, cancer and diabetes.

The FDA with assistance from the Ashanti Regional Police in June, arrested of the gospel musician to assist in investigations after he was seen in a series of videos advertising a medicine he labeled ‘divine healing water’.

In one of the videos, he was seen mixing DDT with water and his holy water while urging all to buy the medicine as it had cured over 50 people.

A statement released by the Food and Drugs Authority on Saturday, June 22, 2019 announcing his arrest said the gospel artiste had no permit to sell such drugs.

“The FDA wishes to inform the general public that it has not registered any product for the cure of HIV/AIDS, neither has any approval been given to the said artiste for the production and sale of any FDA regulated product,” it said.

Speaking on the issue on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz on Tuesday, Brother Sammy said the said medicine is his grandparent’s. According to him, the grandparent is ‘weak’ hence, reason he decided to protect her legacy.

“I didn’t know the right way. I beg the FDA. They should forgive me. God never gave me that medicine; I lied,” he said.

The FDA had hinted the gospel musician could be sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in prison for flouting the Public Health Act 851 if found guilty.

Public Relation Officer of the Authority, James Lartey disclosed in an interview with SVTV that the musician could also be fined between GH¢90,000 and GH¢180,000 for the offense.

“When you’re found guilty, you can be fined an amount of 7,500 penalty units, one penalty unit is GH¢12 so that’s about GH¢90,000 minimum… the judge can decide that ‘I want to jail you’. The minimum sentence for jailing is 15 years and the maximum sentence is 25 years.”

Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has told Ghanaian ladies to be content with what their men have for them.

According to him, they should not follow their friends because that can cause them to lose whatever they have toiled for with their men.

He made this known while speaking on Kumasi-based Abusua FM.

Shatta Wale said “I will advise women to be content with their boyfriends if he’s working and able to provide for you.

Don’t follow friends because they might be envious with what you have”.

Shatta Wale also mentioned that although some great Men of God have worked towards bringing Michy back, she insists she’s no longer interested in Shatta Wale.

In February 2019, Patapaa was featured in Kawoula Biov’s song “Daavi Neba”.

The song was, however, low-key until the release of the video to the track which made it gain internet fame. One part of the song that has won more people over is the is Patapaa’s rap verse.

Even though he spoke a lot of gibberish, one word was heard clearly is “Scopatumana”.

Trending on Twitter now sighted by MyNewsGh.com indicates that Tanzanians want to claim the ownership of the word ‘ Scopatumanaa ‘.

In the tweet sighted by MyNewsGh.com a guy from Tanzania tweeted “Swahili word ‘Sco pa tu manaa’ to the world, proudly Tanzanian.. .proudly swahili”, And this conversation has extended to trending number one on twitter.

Some Ghanaians can’t let it go, making it a huge and trending argument on Twitter.

Only Patapaa may understand what it means, but it is trending because people have taken to social media to post their versions of the verse.

This uproar has created the “Scopatumana” challenge on social media, and it is widely spreading like wide fire.

Rapper and business mogul, Jay-Z has been seen in a new video jamming to his wife’s song, ‘Already’ which he did with Dancehall artist, Shatta Wale.

We can interpret this as a huge endorsement for Shatta Wale’s brand (not for Beyonce because we all know how BIG she’s) and hopefully it will pave way for him internationally.

The celebration reportedly took place at birthday party of Jay Z’s niece Teanna Carter as she celebrated her 21st birthday.

The Lion King: The Gift album which features some well known artistes like Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambinoand her husband Jay-Z which was released on Friday (July 19), seamlessly blends afrobeats, rap, R&B and pop in what the superstar calls her “love letter to Africa.”
