Kwesi Arthur

One very strong part of the brand Kwesi Arthur has so far built for himself is the simple way he always carries himself. Even though it is a brand decision the rapper has decided to stick with, a section of Ghanaians also believe it is not right and that Kwesi Arthur likes to repeat clothes too much.

The Tema based rapper has however decided to use the ‘Celebrity Ride’ to send out a very simple and sweet reply to such critics. The ‘Woara’ hitmaker told Zionfelix that people should understand that he bought the clothes with his own money and as such he can decide to wear it every time he wants to.

The Tema Senior High School old student also stated on the show that dressing the way he does is what he loves since it is comfortable and less financially cumbersome.

He adds that many of the younger ones out there look up to him and as such he cannot wear expensive clothes which many of them cannot afford.

When he was asked why he always decides to remove his attire during his performances even though, he is aware that the youth who admire him, will pick it up, the Fan Milk Company brands ambassador stated that it helps with his performance.

The energy that I feel when I take off my attire during my performance is special and as such, I will never stop, he added.

Davido Sliding Into Politics, Names Wike Godfather

Published

on

Davido

Davido of the popular and wealthy Adeleke’s family in Osun state, on Sunday, promised to work for the re-election of Wike, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). “I am also here to see my godfather, Gov.

Wike and to support his second term bid. “I am planning a talent hunt show in Port Harcourt, one of the lucky artistes will perform at my show in Lagos on Dec. 27,” he said.

The musician, who made the pledge in Port Harcourt on Sunday when he visited the Rivers Governor, also said he would also institute a talent hunt show for Rivers-based artistes. He said the programme would be in line with his discussions with the State Government to support new generation artistes in the state. The musician was in Port Harcourt for a musical show tagged: ‘Plugged’, where he was billed to perform alongside other Rivers-based artistes. Davido said he was also in Port Harcourt to wish Wike a happy birthday, adding that in the forthcoming year, there were several things he was planning for the good of the music industry.

Davido, who also celebrated his 26th birthday on November 11, was accompanied by the organiser of the show, Mr Chima Aguma, and Music Promoter, Soso Soberekon. In his remarks, Gov. Wike promised to support the entertainment industry, to create jobs for the youth. Davido, a singer, songwriter and record producer hit the wave in 2011 with his single, “Dami Duro.” Davido got involved in politics in September when he rolled out the drums to campaign for his uncle Senator Ademola Adeleke who failed to clinch the governorship seat of Osun.

Ademola, the 58-year-old politician, ran against current Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). Davido moved from town to town in Osun, mounting on PDP vehicles, to the delight of music freaks.

Billboards in the state also showed pictures of the singer in traditional dress, leaning on an empty black leather chair next to the Nigerian flag. “I, Davido, support Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke as governor of Osun State,” the roadside advertisements had read.

His grandfather, Raji Ayoola Adeleke, was a senator between 1979 and 1983 while another uncle, Isiaka Adeleke, was Osun’s first civilian governor from January 1992 to November 1993. Isiaka Adeleke later became a senator. He suffered a heart attack and died on 23 April, 2017 at Biket Hospital in Osogbo, the Osun state capital.

The refusal of APC to give Isiaka’s senatorial ticket to the Adeleke family caused the defection of Ademola Adeleke to PDP where he won the senatorial ticket.
