Nana Agradaa And Friends To Be Banned From Doing Adverts On TV From 1st May – Socrate Safo Boldly Decalres

Socrate Safo, the Chairman of the National Film Authority (NFA), has stated that all unapproved and unclassified advertisements involving money rituals or money doubling will be prohibited beginning May 1, 2021.

The chairman revealed that beginning on May 1st, such businesses will be required to go through the offices of the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Bank of Ghana (BoG) for a license to operate in money-doubling businesses and to run an advertisement to that effect.

Mr Socrate Safo emphasized that businesses and individuals who do not have the necessary licenses to operate such businesses will be denied requests to have their content broadcasted.

“If you approach us with a program and the content is about money doubling, then we expect you to have such a license.

If you are Mallam and you want to double money all we are requiring from you is to show us a license you have from the Security and Exchange Commission and the Bank of Ghana to operate as a money doubler. If you don’t have it, then we can’t classify such content for you,” he noted.

The chairman added that the law on classification was set to be implemented in June last year but some further engagement with Ghana Independent Broadcasters Association (GIBA) caused it to be delayed.

He stressed that from 1st May, with reference to the Development and Classification of film Act 953, contents including documentaries, music videos, television programmes before they are broadcasted will through a strict review by the Authority.

“We (National Film Authority) have been with them (GIBA) back and forth till date and we have set May 1, to start implementing the law and this stage was actually set in collaboration with GIBA. So actually, it has been a matter of engagement with the stakeholders,” he said on JoyNews.

Joe Mettle In A Big Trouble, Accused Of Stealing A Gospel Song

Ghanaian gospel musician Joe Mettle has landed in big trouble after being accused of stealing a song belonging to US-based Ghanaian gospel musician Fletcher Narh.

Fletcher Narh revealed this in an interview on Neat FM accusing Joe Mettle of lifting his song without approval from his management.

According to Fletcher Narh, his breakthrough song, ‘Mayi W’aye’ which was released 15 years ago was taken by Joe Mettle in 2015 also titled “Meyi W’aye” without going through the due copyright process.

“I sang Meyi W’aye about 15 years ago,” he told Neat FM on Tuesday. “I’m the only one that understands the history behind the song and how God gave the song. But you know how Ghanaians behave, people do not do the right thing.”

He further narrated that Joe Mettle contacted him to sample the song but both didn’t agree on a term before it was released.

“He called me years ago and told me he had done all the research and he loves the song and that he wanted to do [sample] it. I said ‘that’s okay. I have a lot of songs but we have to do it the right way’. He even wanted to know how much I was going to charge for it. I need to pray about it and all that but by the time I realized, he had released it,” he narrated.

He said he couldn’t take on Joe Mettle because the Ghanaian system doesn’t empower copyright owners to take on offenders.

Though excited to see Joe Mettle sample his song, Fletcher said he should have been given some credit.

“I believe that the truth is the truth and nothing can outlive the truth. I was in America when people sent me videos and it was exciting but I feel that I deserved some credit,” he added.
