A TRUE LIFE STORY – LOVE IN WORD OR LOVE IN DEED?

Her romantic tone waxed so well with my manly coarse tone and we sounded like the Soweto choir. We were completely immersed in the conversation and absolutely lost in the moment.

We sat face to face, chatting, giggling and occasionally gazing intently into each other’s eyeballs, the conversation filled with “sweet nothing” kept on flowing effortlessly in what seemed sweet melodious and sleek tones.

Her romantic tone waxed so well with my manly coarse tone and we sounded like the Soweto choir. We were completely immersed in the conversation and absolutely lost in the moment.

The moment was inundated with an air of benign affability. Every single word uttered either triggered an emotion or tickled pink. In either case it was responded to with an equal measure of emotion, and for the first time I felt Newton’s third law of motion in its practical terms–to every action there is an equal but opposite reaction.

Her smooth long legs which protruded from her shorts (hot pants) were bent at right angles (90) so that one bent knee could fit exactly in between my short bent legs which stood astride. The sitting pattern was such that I had a bent knee in between her thighs and she also had hers in between mine, but she had to do so cautiously because her knee was not very far from my balls of life.

The vertices from the top of my head, to her eyes, to the top of her head could be connected to form an isosceles triangle with the odd angle on my head. She was obviously taller so would have to tilt my head upwards at an appreciable level so that our eyes could be fixed on a straight line.

We looked very well saddled and huddled together but I can bet that this was never a planned thing. We just had to manage comfortable postures in the little space that served as an office cum warehouse .We cared less about the pungency of paint, ink, old paper, grease, kerosene and petrol that engulfed the little space in the printing press.

From a distance one would think of us as some new snuggle bunnies who couldn’t wait to have a one night stand, because the scene was more erotic than a mere romance-charged atmosphere. However, there existed nothing more than acquaintanceship. Even if there was, then it was still in the pipeline.

We had just met for the second time and we seemed to be getting along real fast. We got along so well that it seemed we knew ourselves from birth–the connection was like that of a Bluetooth connection, the bond like that of a covalent bond, and the telepathy between us was simply amazing.

The talkative persons we both are, made it easier for us to veer from one topic to another and very difficult for us to agree on one thing, so we veered from argument to argument. She was one person who would never give in to anyone’s opinion. She had an opinion on every topic, even topics about the life of the dead. Her opinions were always different from everyone else’s. Even if her opinion coincidentally falls in congruent with some else’s she would find a way of adding or subtracting something so that she could be on her own lane of thought.

Our conversations were boundless: love, sex, media, school, abroad, career and the list goes on and on. Most of what we discussed were however media related because apparently we were both in one way or the other connected to media. Unsolicitedly, she told me about herself and the independent life she lives in her parents’ house: ironic right? She told me about her associates and various squads. Ironically her associates and squads, and that of mine have a Shatta – Samini kind of relationship–little wonder we never agreed on anything.

Hearing her speak, one got the impression that she was some sort of a celebrity or one in the making. She spoke very good English and blended it so well with fine Twi (never mind that I don’t understand twi very well). Her accent was neither British nor American, and it wasn’t Ghanaian too. I heard she lived abroad for a while (a little above 5 months) but I couldn’t readily pin her accent down on any particular country. It was somehow close to an American accent but very much older than the few months she was said to have lived abroad so I convinced myself that she probably acquired some of it in America and acquired the rest through distance learning: that’s if we don’t want to say her accent was a Locally Acquired Foreign Accent (LAFA).

Our conversation got deeper and deeper until intimacy dawned….

Watch out for part 2.

Today we bring to you the story of an amazing son of Bongo who is a practicing nurse and one of the finest radio show hosts in the Upper East Region.

Popularly known as Dj Aluther, his dedication to radio as a tool for reaching the youth on various levels earned him an award as the Best Deejay of the Year at the Delight Box Entertainment Upper Music Awards 2016. He was also nominated in 3 categories at the Northern Entertainments Awards held in Tamale some months ago; overall presenter of the year, best deejay of the year and best entertainment show of the year.

Born Akunsike Martin in Bongo, the Word Fm Deejay and Presenter has through relentless efforts carved a niche for himself via the “Word House Party Mix”; a radio show strategically and purposefully couched to satisfy the insatiable need of quality entertainment in the region.

In what can be described as an entertainment cocktail, Deejay Aluther serves his audience with bits and pieces of all there is to entertainment; entertainment news, celebrity interviews, talent promotions, event promotions and a great deal of music mixes with a spice of real talk to engage his audience. His radio show which airs every Saturday between the hours of 4:00pm-6:00pm on Word 88.3Fm in Zuarungu is one of the most interactive, vibrant and remains arguably the weekend show with the largest listenership in the entire Upper East Region.

With earlier experiences at A1Radio also in Bolgatanga as part of the learning process, accepting an appointment and running an effective show on Word Fm in July 2014 was really not too daunting a task to carry.

Dj Aluther had always wanted to be an engineer and a radio personality, though he missed out on becoming an engineer, his radio dream materialized and new passion replaced engineering and that is nursing. He went further to study nursing and now practices in Bongo.

Among the spectacular moments spent on radio were moments that he held the legendary King Ayisoba and his own role model, DJ Black on separate interviews. According to him, he describes the experience as a rarely refreshing experience.

As someone who spends just 2 hours a week on radio yet has so much popularity and influence, he believes media is the most required tool in transforming the savanna considering the educational, informational and entertainment nature of media presentation. He believes the media can be bring about a rapid economic boom in the savanna regions of Ghana since the area is relatively unknown, media can be used to promote the area which will eventually attract investors.

Do make time with Dj Aluther on the “– Word House Party Mix” and you won’t regret it.

If you are in the Upper East Region catch SV-JAM OF THE WEEK with Dj Aluther on  “Word House Party Mix” on Saturdays from 4pm – 6pm on Word 88.3Fm.

In an obvious display of temerity, the high-energy performer Diva 1 has dropped another song titled “drop that sh*t”. Unfortunately the lyrics and tone of the song professes insecurity. The song makes Diva 1 appear to be threatened by the emergence of a particular new artiste.  Performed in Dagbanli, English & Pidgin, Diva 1 jabs an unnamed person she referred to as “Local Girl”.

Checkout We Take Dem Run – Diva One

Diva 1 is arguably the most prolific female musical gem blessing the Tamale music scene; her energetic, and animated performances continue to serve as a thrill wherever she performs. With a laudable vocal strength, she matches her male counterparts with frequent releases. Her consistency in the industry exudes the characteristics of a focused individual. One might attribute her resilience to a formidable team, but the enigmatic performer is yet to land a record deal – if you are looking to manage or produce an artiste whose skill and commitment to the art is peerless, then you should reach out to Diva 1.

Listen to Survivor by Diva 1 below

Diva 1 doesn’t seem to rest on her oars, a demeanor that has got her performing different genres effortlessly. However, her recent singled titled “drop that sh*t” may cast a dent on what she represents as a brand; Diva 1 appears to have thrown caution to the wind and launched an unwarranted attack on another artiste.

Even though Diva 1 goes at her target without explicitly stating who it is, one doesn’t need a soothsayer to detect the animosity deeply enshrined in “drop that sh*t”.

Tamale has been saddled with so much musical “beef”, a situation that transcends the loyalty of fans. Whilst “beef” has culminated into success for some artistes, its also led others to an abyss; an oblivion beyond redemption. For the budding industry to truly become a huge economic success, tact and strategy must dominate the actions or inactions of artistes. To survive a religiously polarized society, one needs to employ a lot of thought into all they do. Whilst many might jump to an explicit and raunchy song, they will rather patronize music that entertains and educates them wholly in a very creative way. So, the release of “drop that sh*t” is not only a deviation from the fun-nature of Diva 1’s songs but an attempt at confusing some of us who have fallen in love with what she brings to the musical buffet.

As one of the few ladies giving the male dominated music industry in Tamale a true taste of what a lady-musician brings to the table; shifting focus from entertaining music, to war-like music is not in your best interest.  The gangster posturing of artistes in the name of appearing street comes with a price, and if that’s the path Diva 1 has chosen to travel, she should state that explicitly.

Oboy, not a week without controversy in Tamale.

Kelewele is Sherifa Gunu’s newest song; a typical dance-tune with a good dose of positive vibe. The amazing singer and dancer seems to have heard the cries of fans, and has therefore release a precursor to some amazing projects she’s been working on with her management. For fans, it is refreshing to know she hasn’t lost her musical prowess.

Sherifa Gunu recently bemoaned the indifferent nature of Ghana music , likening it to a stagnant if not dieing industry. Whilst pundits and music lovers blame the lackluster nature of today’s Ghana music on musicians & their record labels, Sherifa Gunu believes the structures remain the problem. As an effort to prove that the quality and creativity hasn’t dipped, Kelewele is meant to send everyone tapping their feet and approaching the dancefloor. A sign that, music made in Ghana is still infectious. The success of Kelewele may just prove why she thinks the industry can survive if attention is paid to ensuring the structures survive.

With dance as one of her strengths, Sherifa Gunu composes music to elicit the dance in all of us. It is not surprising, that Kelewele is fast evading the places of bad music on the dancefloor, with adjoining massive airplay across the nation.

In recent times the accentuated voices of artistes can be heard across media platforms, bemoaning the high cost of promoting their creative works; Sherifa Gunu in a bid to score more points in the promotion of Kelewele brought her comic side to life. In an interview with the Communications director of Zylofon Media, Samuel Atuobi Baah aka Sammy Flexx, who also doubles as the host of Zylofon Fm’s “Showbiz Agenda”, Sherifa threatened to beat up any deejays and/or radio presenters who refuse to promote Kelewele. She made the fun-threat amidst laughter, and obviously endeared herself into the hearts of all in the studio. This may explain the steady but quick rise of Kelewele.

For a prolonged period Sherifa Gunu has been dormant in the release of new tunes. Despite frequently coming up in the news for other reasons, it was as if she got burnt-out with the saturated Ghana music industry. However, having emerged from a divorce, Sherifa Gunu believes the rejuvenation from the time-off is worth some spicy Kelewele.
