On August 31, 2019, I had the pleasure of personally meeting for the first time Daniel Amakye Dede, aka “Iron Boy” in the United States (US). He is a legendary Ghanaian singer and songwriter affectionately called “Iron Boy” by his fans across the globe.

We met as part of my arrangements to get him an interview I had pre-planned with the Voice of America (VOA) studios in Washington, District of Columbia (DC).

International reporter Peter Clottey of VOA conducted the interview. Peter chatted Amakye Dede on his show ‘Night Line Africa‘, aired on Saturdays and Sundays from midday to 1 PM DC time.

Born January 5, 1958, (I was born January 26, 1980) the music legend did not betray epitomizing his nickname — Abrantie — so well by his gentlemanly demeanor.

As I ushered him into the VOA, I wondered how Mr. Dede stays so relevant even after beginning his music career in 1973 when he joined the Kumapim Royals as a composer and vocalist.

I felt so tempted to ask, but oh well, I already agreed with myself that it was because he is such an intricate storyteller who weaves creative anecdotes with the lyrics of his music that d not only entertain the ear but teases the mind into pondering while leaving room for the feet to dance.

By the way, Abrantie in the Ghanaian Twi dialect means ‘young man‘ so there you go. Moving along, Amakye Dede was in town for his US Tour and had arrived a day before his sold-out concert in Washington, DC. Lucky for me,

I had cleared up my schedule to meet him and yes the pleasure was all mine, for real, considering the first time he was in DC was in 1990.

Before arriving in DC to climax the show, the trio started their tour off with what they described as a successful gig at the GHANAfest concert in Chicago. From there they hit States like Ohio, Texas, and New York.

2Geez Entertainment were hosts of the DC show where the trio played at Karma Music Center. iBright events, however, collaborated with GNC and Steaman Entertainment to make this tour possible.

I owe them all loads of thanks for also making it possible for me to meet Amakye Dede, the legend who provided many of the eclectic soundtracks to the story of my life as I grew up in Tema, Ghana.

Yes, I shot the interview at the VOA on my smartphone camera because I wanted to make sure you all got to see it, even though I didn’t bring my Nikon.

In addition, he also obtained some snippets from the show that happened the following day on September 1, 2019. It is my small way of saying endless thanks to Iron Boy who has made some 20 albums in through his prolific career.

Becca And Her Mum

Becca is a talented Ghanaian singer and actress.

Becca married a Nigerian Husband, Tobi Sanni in August 2018 in a strictly-by-invitation ceremony that welcomed celebrities from both Ghana and Nigeria.

The marriage was blessed with a beautiful baby girl the last February. However, the baby’s arrival has exposed the big rift between Becca’s nuclear family and her mum.

Becca’s mum has been denied the much-anticipated grandmother-hood as she has not been allowed to meet with her granddaughter.

The news came shocking to the general populace as no one could ever believe this is happening to Becca and mum.

A source claimed that the denial could be traced to Becca’s husband believe that his mother-in-law is a witch.

Nothing could be more painful to the mum as her daughter bought into the hogwash without a second thought, leaving the mother defenceless.

Wizardry is a lifetime thing in Africa. However, the 21st century has lived past this old belief.

But as it stands, many conservative Africans have refused to let go of the ancient myth of wizardry.

Regrettably, Mr Tobi Sanni,  is one of the conservatives for ever thinking his mother-in-law has wings and could fly.

One would wonder how frustrating the denied grandmother would be right now.

Becca’s debut album, Sugar in 2007 attracted numerous nominations and eventually won the Ghana Music Awards for the Record of the Year in 2008.

Latest African Celebrities News

Her career is studded with multiple nominations and awards including Kora Awards in 2010, Ghana Music Award for Best Vocal Performance in 2010, 4Syte TV Music Video Awards for Overall Best Video Award in 2011 among others.

Ghanaians are torn between Becca and her mum, some side with Becca for refusing to talk to the mum and also believe when her husband allegedly accused mum.

They are of the opinion that the mum should have dealt with this privately  and not in public

Others on the other hand, are very shocked that Becca did not stand up to husband and defend her mother, after all there can be one mother.

But as the saying goes, until you have walked in someone shoe do not judge!

Some Ghanaians are of the view that the mother had no choice and her going public was mothers a cry for help.

Others are saying some Nigerians men don’t respect Ghanaian women and have been taking advantage of them.
