INTERESTING ARTICLE BY: UNKNOW WRITER
This blog might create a disbelief in the heart of some on my part so far as religion or faith is concerned. This will also be a wake up call to some religious leaders “only if they read this biblical blog”.
The just ended Vodafone Ghana Music awards made some media gurus like kwadwo sheldon on YouTube and also other folks on Ghana airwaves vocalize the religious disparity between secular artist and Gospel artist. The debate on where they stand because of the genre of music they do is not going to be done today.
Most interestingly most the Genesis of most these tagged secular artist was from the church. This is then brings us to the question you all don’t want to ask, “what happened”? Is it money or the fame that pulled them out of the choir into the world to make such music?
Is it also because In church they were not having the support from their leaders and the church entirely but rather someone out there gave them all this love, appreciation, value, support, to mention but a few and that in a way gingered them to make this great switch?
Here in Ukraine I can boast of so many talents in churches. Talk of Miqdad, A D, Justice and the others that are massively doing awesome. How important are their talent to their churches. How’s the church scheming it affairs to help keep these guys in shape. How’s the church thinking of how they can manage these talents to bring Glory and souls to God and also at least some money into their accounts.
Are we going to see their worth when they switch? Are we waiting to tell the world how they used to be part of the choir but now no more after they switch?
To the various churches and religious leaders all I have to say is these folks are sheep that bleats differently. Act now or say nothing at the aftermath.
Ghanaian hailing from the very best communities in Ghana – Fadama – Mustapha grew up with his cousin (Anwar) and Aunty.
At the early stages of his life, he was training to be an Arabic Scholar and started his schooling years at an Arabic school where he attended 3 different Arabic school a day. For this reason, he is able to speak and read Arabic fluently. At the age of 9 he decided he wanted to go to school and therefore joined his cousin at Kingdom Preparatory School in Fadama where he started nursery. Being an intelligent being he was appointed as a school prefect and was able to catch up to his age mates therefore managing to skip several years and joining his peers in Junior High at St Lawrence Catholic School at the age of 14. For this reason, Mustpaha enjoys singing hymns and often plays famous Ghanaian worship and praise songs in his spare time. Mustapha continued to prosper in his schooling days and was also appointed as a prefect at St Lawrence School.
Following his BECE completing with a minimum of 6 A’s, Mustapha went on to gain admission at Ghana National College in Cape Coast, though this was disheartening for him as his dream college was Mfantipm. At Afedu Royal House where Mustapha pursued his studies in general science, he was very highly respected. In his own words he passed through a very difficult training programme as Afedu House was infamous for being the most stubborn house on campus. During his student years, Mustapha impacted many students lives. Though he was surrounded by stubborn students, he made it a point not to be influenced by their bad behaviours, and rather influenced the boys at the house. In the words of some of his mates, “Mustapha was the light shining in the darkness at Afedu House.”
During his student years at Ghana National, he aspired to be a senior head boy in academics. Although he passed the vetting stages, he was not granted to read his manifesto owing to his religious background. Though this was disheartening, Mustapha did not give up and went on to implement the changes he would have liked to see by becoming Ghana Muslim Student Association (GMSA) president and helping be the voice of Muslim students who would’ve been discriminated against by the school. Some of the changes Mustapha achieved during his reign were for example, during Ramadan, food will be reserved for Muslims prior to and after fasting. Secondly, Muslims were no longer obliged to attend Sunday Church services. He rather enabled that Muslims to be given a place of worship where they could pray and carry their daily rituals. Following this, though he was not officially the head boy, most issues affecting final year students were brought to his attention for resolution. This is where Mustapha’s leadership journey truly started.
Mustapha continued his education in Ukraine in 2015 following the advice of his cousin Anwar about study opportunities in Ukraine. His degree was in medicine and surgery. The first thought Mustapha had on arrival was that he would become the president of the National Unions of Ghana Students (NUGS) – Ukraine. In his first two years Mustapha learnt Russian and was able to converse fluently with locals hence making him a favourite with several of the Ukraine school officials. Following this he then began to take up leadership roles listed below:
- Public relations officer – Dnipro Chapter (2017 – 2018)
- President – Dnipro Chapter (2018 – 2019)
- Vice President – NUGS Ukraine (2018 – 2019)
- President – NUGS Ukraine (2019 – 2020)
- Trustee Board Member – GUGS (2019 – Present)
As a student Mustapha co-started his company Planaria Medical Agency where he taught students KROK lessons and also signed a tutorship contract with Medlink.
Mustapha graduated from the Dnipro State Medical University as one of the top 2% of his class in the degree, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. He is now due to start working as a medical doctor with the aims of specialising in medicine.
As a young child, Joseph Allor-Annan would always accompany his grandma for her routine hospital visits. There a new world opened up to him. Witnessing young doctors in lab coats and the altruistic care they gave to patients left an enduring impression on him and his current career choice.
As a firm believer that with the right motivation and perseverance nothing is out of anyone’s reach and a new dream in heart, he studied earnestly and to offer science in St. Augustine’s College.
Joseph, as an avid Formula 1 fan, is inspired by Lewis Hamilton who notwithstanding his background has made a name for himself as one of the best racers. “Still we rise”… a quote emblazoned on Joseph’s heart is his driving force to become a doctor and thus consequently graduating with honors from Saratov State Medical University.
During his time in medical school, he successfully led the electoral commission of NUGS Saratov and Audit committee of NUGS Russia.
On 26th February 2021, a total number of Four Hundred and Thirty-Nine (439) foreign trained doctors wrote the Licensure Registration Exams. Interviews were conducted subsequently on (date). The cost of the exams was $770 (GHS4,543.00) per candidate.
As duly communicated to us by the Medical and Dental Council (MDC) the results were to be released within a period of two (2) to four (4) weeks
from the date of the exams. Overwhelmingly, it has been more than seventeen (17) weeks (Four (4)
months) since the date of the exams. The results have neither been released nor has there been a communiqué from the MDC detailing the
reasons for the unprecedented delay.
All attempts to obtain answers have proved futile. Constant enquiry visits at the Council left us rather devastated; we are always told to keep waiting to be contacted. As we pen down this letter we are still waiting in
To our utter dismay, the MDC registered another batch of foreign trained doctors for a licensure exams which was conducted on 25th June 2021.
Aside that, registration is ongoing for the next batch of Medical and Dental candidates as well as Physician Assistants (PA’s) to sit for the exams in October and November 2021 respectively. This leaves us
concerned about what the future holds for us.
Another worrying issue is that, candidates who fail the exam are allowed
to resit after showing evidence of having done a structured clinical attachment for not less than twenty (20)weeks. As it stands, this won’t be
ssible this time around, since October is eleven (11) weeks away and no results have been released. This leaves no time for adequate preparation if
a candidate fails and decides to resit for the exams in October..
We are therefore disheartened at the current situation and wish to use your
esteemed platforms to chum out our grievances. Our future lies in uncertainty. It is therefore our considered hope that by this address our
grievances will be heard speedily.

Award-winning Ghanaian rap act Sarkodie has rendered an apology to legendary radio and television presenter as well as events promoter Simon Boateng well known as DJ Abrantee.
The apology comes after the musician inadvertently left the promoter (who has been of so much support to his career) out of invited personalities for his album listening (No Pressure) in London.
He rendered the apology during a recent interview on Y102.5FM in Kumasi where had embarked on a media tour ahead of his birthday celebrations and album release.
“I’m using this platform to say is sorry to DJ Abrantee. I know he is not mad but he felt some way because I did my listening in London and he wasn’t involved. That listening was organized within 24 hours. I had no idea about all the people present. Personally, I didn’t even call anybody as it was organized by Kojo. I just had to show up. A lot of people felt I deliberately ignored them but that was not it”, he said.
Prior to the apology, he spoke highly of DJ Abrantee and his partner May7ven.
“DJ Abrantee actually organized my 02 Indigo Concert. As much as I believed in myself at the point, he had this believe in me. He asked that I stop doing ‘local’ shows. It was too much for me to bear. I had to believe him and he just saw everything through and made that history so personally, I have this attachment to him. I believe him when he says I should do something.”

They might not, but be assured they do notice when you deliver on them. When someone always follows through, it is impressive. It is the quickest way to build credibility and trust with others.
