Meet Benedicta Gafa’s Alleged Ex Fraudster Boyfriend Who Beat Her Up & The Full Story Behind The Beatings

Published

Benedicta Gafa

Not long ago a bruised face of Benedicta Gafah surfaced on the internet and according to her, it happened in her past relationship when the one she was dating was a woman beater.

After digging into the matter we have found Benedicta Gafah’s ex-boyfriend.

He walks around with the name Dr. Kelvin but according to sources, he is a fraudster with a real name as Charles Asumadu.

Dr. Kelvin and Benedicta Gafah were madly in love some years back and the man even went to see the family of the kumawood actress with a promise ring and one schnapp for knocking.

See what an Insider had to say:

“..so as they were hanging there to marry… they bought a land in mamponteng Fawoade kumasi Ashanti region.. to build a house for themselves. …Bene was in her house one sunny day and she got a call from a strange woman claiming Mr. Charles …aka self acclaimed Dr.Kevin is her husband so she started threatening Benedicta Gafa….

Mr Kelvin

so after the actress’s family entered the case very well…it was confirmed he was married to that lady that time….so Bene told the man he can’t continue the relationship. …this man started fighting her over the uncompleted building in Fawoade…Bene left everything for him because of her own peace of mind…

Mr. Kelvin went to Bene rented apartment they used to stay in when ever he return back from America and beat her mercilessly. ..the poor orphan girl nearly died.

…did he do this to Benedicta Gafa because he realised she has no mother??? Why are people soo heartless.

He allegedly paid Afia Schwarzenegger just to disgrace her.

The case is still pending in Court so he will hear from her family.”

Drake Vs Pusha T: Are Fans Taking Rap Beefs Too Seriously?

Published

on

Drake

Rivalries and beefs are a longstanding tradition in hip hop, from b-boys and b-girls battling it out in dance to rappers trading lyrical barbs, live or via diss tracks. But fans taking an artistic battle from a performance space into the real world is rare and surprising, according to hip-hop writer A. Harmony.

“Battle rap is a fixture in hip hop. It’s considered a sport. It’s considered a form of entertainment and a chance for MCs to really showcase their skills. It’s a part of the music industry. It’s a part of the music culture,” explained Harmony, hip hop contributor to Exclaim Magazine.

But a full-on brawl ensued at a Pusha T concert in Toronto on Tuesday, after some audience members apparently tossed drinks onstage at the American rapper — who has been embroiled in an on-again, off-again beef with hometown favourite Drake — mid-performance. Briefly retaking the stage, the Virginia rapper seemed to accuse Drake of being behind the slight. The concert was closed down shortly after. Later, a concertgoer turned up at a nearby hospital with stab wounds, according to police.

The drinks being tossed might have been something “between concertgoers that got out of hand,” said Harmony. It might also have been the result of fans “who decided to take this form of entertainment and turn it into something it wasn’t.”

In recent years, there has been a noticeable rise in young music fans lashing out at rivals for perceived slights to their idols, whether its Beliebers rallying behind Justin Bieber or the BeyHive lashing out in support of Beyoncé.

“We have seen instances of super fans kind of crossing the line,” Harmony noted, citing an instance this July when Nicki Minaj fans waged a brutal campaign against a Canadian freelance writer who offered a negative critique of the rapper’s music.

Different kind of connection
Today’s fans aren’t like those of previous generations. They feel a different, closer connection to their idols thanks to social media — and that goes for rap aficionados as well, according to Emmanuel Tabi, a hip-hop fan and University of Toronto PhD candidate examining cultural production and its intersection with education and activism.

Because entertainers frequently tackle their personal problems with their art or in interviews and share seemingly real, but carefully cultivated personas on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and beyond, “you might feel like you actually know Drake,” Tabi said.

This Kid Sold his Album On The Street To Raise Funds

Published

on

How far can you go to achieve your dream? Whats the extreme? Humans are mostly driven but passion to keep doing things they love doing. Personally we would all have a reason to why we just can’t give up on certain things.

Over the weekend I met this young man who was selling hardcopies of his works which happens to be his new Extended Playlist (EP) titled “This Is Nothing For The Radio”. Odd title for an album right? Yeah. As curious as I was decided to buy a copy and listen to as to why he decided to choose this title.

Surprisingly the tracks on the album were better than what we mostly hear on our radio. So I asked him why he chose the title “This Is Nothing For The Radio”. According to him, he is motivated by facts and wanted to create music that would stand the test of time and not a tape that would be played a couple of times on the radio and then forgotten about.

He Goes by the name Jo’ Wayne which was derived from his real name Jonathan Elorm Wayne. Let me tell you something that would interest you as well, Jo’ Wayne is a level 600 Doctor of Laboratory Medicine, a student at the University of Development Studies and is also an alumnus of the University of Cape Coast.

Aside Singing Dr Elorm Wayne is also surprisingly good at producing music, mixing and mastering as well. Now why would a doctor spend more time in music? He said “I see the making of music as some sort of therapy because it is something i can always run to whenever I need to escape stress.
He continued saying it is an avenue for me to extend messages being given to him by my inner voices to the world.

Later that night I decided to dig into his profile and it turned out he started doing music before 2012. Wow. How was he doing it? Well, I didn’t get the chance to ask him, but I can say he loves what he does, and after listening to his album, he’s just perfect at it. CurrentIy I haven’t been able to choose a favourite, they are all Lit, you would have to check the album. “Win” puts my emotions on a rollercoaster.

Guys you seriously have to check this Album
You can request for the hardcopy via (+233 54 896 1557) or are get it digitally on iTunes.
