Suits Has Been Axed

Published

on

Suits, the slick American legal series that introduced the world to Meghan Markle, has been axed. A statement released by TV network SYFY confirmed that the forthcoming ninth season will be its last, running at 10 episodes long.

Markle, who played legal secretary Rachel Zane, departed the show at the end of the seventh season – ahead of her marriage to Prince Harry – along with co-star Patrick J. Adams, who played her love interest Mike Ross. The pair had been leading characters since the start of the series and were firm fan favourites.

While no specific reason for the show’s axing has been given, many are speculating that Suits struggled to find its footing following their departure; according to reports, season eight averaged at 1.2 million viewers, a drop of 100,000 from season seven. However, viewing figures have been slowly declining since the start of the show; the first series aired with an average of 4.6 million viewers in 2011.

“Suits has played an instrumental role in our network’s DNA for nearly a decade,” said Chris McCumber, president of USA Network and SYFY. “I and everyone at USA Network sincerely thank Aaron Korsh, our partners at UCP and the entire Suits family for their tremendous creativity, devotion and support over a truly amazing run.”

Following her departure from the show, Markle appeared to remain close with her Suits co-stars, with several of them attending her royal wedding back in May.

The new Duchess of Sussex spoke about her time on the show during her first joint interview with Prince Harry in November 2017.

“I see it as new change, a new chapter. I’ve been working on my show [for] seven years, we were so fortunate to have that longevity, and I feel like I checked that box and am very proud of the work I’ve done there,” she said. Recent reports that the duchess had been offered millions – to donate to a charity of her choice – to film a cameo appearance were swiftly denied.

But there’s no need to mourn the show just yet. The second half of the eighth season (which welcomed Katherine Heigl to the firm) starts tonight, with the final series expected to air next year. There’s also a spin-off show to look forward to, Pearson, starring former Suits favourite Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson.

I Won’t Return The 2019 VGMA Plaques I Won : Stonebwoy Tells Charterhouse

Published

Stonebwoy

Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla has stated that contrary to Charterhouse’s request that he and Shatta Wale return the plaques they won at this year’s VGMA’s, he will never return the plaques.

Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy after their unpopular VGMA brawl were indefinitely suspended from partaking in the subsequent VGMA’s and were asked to return the plaques they won on the night.

The artiste/popular of the year which we were told by Sefa Kayi belonged to Shatta and Stonebwoy was as also not announced because of the fracas.

In an interview with Andy Dosty on Accra-based Hitz FM today, 20th September 2019, Stonebwoy reacted Charterhouse’s statement, indicating that asking him to return a plaque he won with his fan’s vote is a sign of disrespect for him.

According to Stonebwoy, he did not steal the awards, so why must he return the plaque adding that he deserved the awards because of his hard work.

Stonebwoy described the actions of Charterhouse as haste and judgemental.

Speaking on the unfortunate incidence, he apologised and noted that people could have died because of the pandemonium that occurred on that day so for him and his fans to lose their lives for nothing is alarming.

“What happened at the VGMA’s was a turning point for me and the music industry”, he added.
