Former Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations in the Mahama administration, Alhaji Baba Jamal Mohammed Ahmed, has attributed the inability of Floyd Mayweather Jr. to visit the country to insecurity . “It’s very sad Mayweather was unable to come to Ghana; he’s legend and the most successful boxer ever to walk on the face of the earth,” he told Accra based Okay FM Tuesday. “If he comes to your country, it's like being honoured with a world cup or Afcon tournament; it comes with a lot of benefit.” “It’s unfortunate, he could have come along with business tycoons and this requires a peaceful environment.” “So, it's unfortunate he didn’t come because of insecurity in this country,” the former MP for Akwatia said. “The main reason he postponed his tour to Ghana is that the country is not safe for him. What’s going on now shows clearly that our security is not too good for him ,” he added. “If President. Nana Addo will stop his foreign tours and take a critical look at our security system, Mayweather and his people wouldn't have cancelled their visit. Alhaji Baba Jamal Mohammed Ahmed lost his Akwatia Constituency seat to New Patriotic Party’s Mercy Adu-Gyamfi also known as Ama Sey.

Two Ghanaian artistes, who were recently signed by Zylofon Media, have been billed to perform at the 2017 BET Experience.

The two artistes, Stonebwoy and Becca, who are already in the US, will join other African artistes to perform at the event on Saturday, June 24. For Ghana to be seen and heard on a bigger platform like the BET awards, some representatives should make a massive appearance on some of the recognised stages in the schemes.

Already, Stonebwoy is targeting a second win at the prestigious BET Awards after winning the Best International Act: Africa at the 2015 edition.

The ‘Go Higher’ hit singer will be competing with Wizkid (Nigeria), Davido (Nigeria), Tekno (Nigeria), AKA (South Africa), Nasty C (South Africa), Mr Eazi (Nigeria), and Babes Wodumo (South Africa) for the award this year.

But before the main awards on June 25, 2017, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the two Ghanaians will grace the Experience party at the Sayers Club 1645 Wilcox Ave. in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 24.

The BET experience will also feature performances from Nasty C, Tekno, Rayvanny with UK-based Ghanaian DJ, DJ Abrantie and Nigeria’s DJ Spinall.

Zylofon Media said in a statement that, “the answer for the spotlight in our current music dispensation is in the hands and power of the newly signed Zylofon Media artistes Stonebwoy and Becca.”

“Though this is not the first time Stonebwoy will be on that platform, this time round he gets to share the same stage with his label mate Becca in the faraway USA,” and they are elated about the Ghanaian artistes taking on the international stage to make the country proud.

The entertainment outfit noted that “Stonebwoy is hopeful that though his nomination in this year’s scheme is very competitive, he can still pull a surprise by winning the category that has equally good artistes like Tekno, Davido, Wizkid and the rest in it.”
