A week ago, New York -based Jamaican Dancehall Musician, Beniton, released his official video for “Struggles” off of his upcoming EP titled “PreeCision”.

The video which was shot on Ghanaian soil which features Stonebwoy is not just an ordinary video one would watch. The concept of the video creeps beyond just lyrics and cameras set about motion.

“Struggles” official video details the Black Struggle, twists and turns on the 400 year journey of African slavery. which also Beniton himself had Co-directed alongside Ghanas own Slingshot HD (@Slingshotbookings).

Watch “STRUGGLES” ft. Stonebwoy.

Almost everyone who watched the video and commented about it on YouTube and other social media platforms had a piece of their life story in it. Not just because of the Imagery directly but the song lyrics which speak for itself with lines like….. “Some of the struggles were necessary for us to realize we were great”….is so relatable to everyone who has gone through some form of struggle and mishap.

History holds it that he is the first International Reggae artiste to have filmed a music video from the Cape Coast Castle.

Beniton ‘aka’ Jack Frostt in a detailed conversation about the video concept in relation to the song lyrics says, “basically it’s been 400 years since Millions of West Africans were enslaved and brought to the western world and I have come back to Africa on the Year of Return to the Cape Coast Castle in Ghana to embrace the energy and acknowledge the #Struggles my Ancestors and black people went through on a whole. Also the song made even more sense to collaborate with Stonebwoy representing Ghana and sing about his Struggles as an African dancehall artist coming from humble beginnings…“, he told Elorm Beenie who writes for BeenieWords.com

“The spirit of my ancestors led me back to Ghana and welcomed me back with open arms like I never left. Every Human Being identifies with some sort of struggle whether Physical, Spiritual Mental or Financial. Giving up during difficult times should never be an option. Because the ancestors that came before us never had a choice. But the reward is much greater when you challenge your self”, he concluded.

Watch the music video on YouTube and drop your comments; you can as well buy and stream the song across all major global music stores platforms.

Empress Leak Owner Anim Anderson Arrested : Full Details

Published

on

The news went viral a few days ago that the anonymous person who was managing the popular pornography website, Empress Leak has been arrested. He was identified as Mr. Anim Ofosuhene

Mr Anim was arrested during a joint operation by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) of the Ministry of Communications, in collaboration with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service and the National Cyber Security Technical Working Group.

On Monday 10th August 2020, the minister of Communication, Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful held a joint press briefing to announce the arrest of Empress leak owner and how he was arrested.

The minister revealed the investigation was launched when a female SHS student filed a report on January 6th 2020 with the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-GH) of the NCSC. The report by the victim who is below 18 years, was to alert the CERT-GH team of an uploaded sexually explicit video of her to the website.

Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful explained preliminary investigations uncovered information on the website’s registrant information, associated domain names, email addresses, telephone contacts as well as residential address of the administrator, Mr Anderson Ofosuhene Anim.

She said, “As part of Government’s efforts towards the protection of Ghana’s cyberspace, the National Cyber Security Centre in 2019 launched a Cybercrime/Cybersecurity Incident Reporting Point of Contact (PoC), to provide an effective mechanism for citizens to report suspected and identified cybercrime and cybersecurity incidents.”

The Minister stated that since the operationalization of the PoC, the NCSC has received countless cybercrime/cybersecurity incidents reports from the public. Key among these reports is the publication of non-consensual intimate images (sextortion), online impersonation, online fraud, malware attacks, online blackmail, website defacement, among others.

According to her, sextortion and distribution of sexual images of individuals are gradually becoming a canker in the Ghanaian cyberspace, due to the trusting nature of most Ghanaians.

“Out of a total of 296 cases received by the National CERT between January 1 to June 30, 2020, 27% of the cases, representing a total of 79 cases, are related to either sextortion, non-consensual sharing of intimate images or child online abuse”, she added.

She stressed that these criminal acts are perpetrated by malicious individuals who build acquaintance with unsuspecting victims on platforms such as social media, dating and adult website through the use of fake identities.

Explaining how these criminals operate, the Minister said, victims, are coaxed to either share nude pictures/video of themselves or perform sexual acts that are secretly recorded. The criminals capitalize on these recordings to extort monies from victims.

Touching on the provisions of the law, the Hon. Minister explained that “Child pornographic content and the act of extortion constitutes criminal activities under Section 136(1) of the Electronic Transactions Act, 2008 (Act 772) – (c) possesses child pornography in a computer system or on a computer or electronic record storage medium, commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine of not more than 25 penalty units or a term of imprisonment of not more than10 years or to both, and Section 151 of Criminal and Other Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).”

She added that “Government and its agencies are working assiduously to curtail the prevalence of cybercrimes, however, implored the general public, especially children and young adults to be cautious of the activities of malicious individuals.”

The Director-General of the CID of the Ghana Police Service, COP Isaac Ken Yeboah, in his address, mentioned that victims who reach out to the perpetrators of these criminal activities are compelled to pay between GHS 500 to 1,000 via mobile money.

He revealed that the suspect will be charged for obscenity, child pornography and extortion.

The press briefing was also graced by the National Cybersecurity Advisor, Dr Albert Antwi-Boasiako, Deputy Minister for Communications, Hon. George Andah, Deputy Minister for Communications, Hon. Alexander Abban, Director, Cybercrime Unit, Dr Gustav Yankson, Chief Director, Mrs Magdalene Apenteng and others.

The National Cyber Security Centre works closely with the National Cyber Security Technical Working Group (NCSTWG), which is the governance body responsible for providing technical direction to the country’s cybersecurity development.

It’s must be emphasized that Mr Anim breached several of Ghana’s constitution with the operation of his notorious website.

The breaches include illegally operating pornography websites, publicizing unauthorized obscene content of individuals without permission, child pornography, extortion and many others.

But the Director of CID revealed he will be charged for obscenity, child pornography and extortion.
