The president of the Bhim Nation is not bearing the name of an ‘Ayigbe Mafia’ in vain but for a purpose.


Stonebwoy pulled a pistol on the stage of VGMA to ‘defend’ himself during a feud that ensued between himself and the Shatta Wale and well as their fans.


He walked angrily to a cool corner of the stage before finally removing a pistil to defend himself from the fast approaching SM fans.


Many have however taken to social media to lambast them for throwing Ghana’s only prestigious music award scheme into limbo.


No casualties were recorded however…Al thanks to God….

Police have revealed that, Chris Attoh’s murdered wife, Bettie Jenifer who was gunned down while leaving her office on Friday, was married to two different men simultaneously, one of whom is a convicted Baltimore drug lord, serving a 20-year jail term.

The Greenbelt police in a statement released, describing how the 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer was killed, said that she left her office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane about 5 p.m. and was walking to her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her.

When she tried to run away, the man followed her and fired multiple rounds. At least one bullet struck her in the head, police said.

The suspect took off in a vehicle. Police described the suspect as black and having a thin build with black hair. He was wearing dark clothing and may have been in a blue car.

Police also confirmed Jenifer was married to Chris Attoh, a well-known actor and TV host in Ghana. At the same time, they said she was also married to 47-year-old Kedrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas.

The U.S. District Attorney’s Office said the kingpin’s “Jenifer drug trafficking organization” distributed at least 450 kilograms of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.

“Kedrick Jenifer lived large as a major Baltimore drug dealer, but now he will lose all of his toys and live for two decades in federal prison,” U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said in a news release after his sentencing, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Court records show that Kedrick Jenifer filed for a divorce on April 9. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later.

Greenbelt police confirmed Sunday the shooting was targeted and not a random incident. Police have not named a suspect or motive in the case.

Co-workers said Bettie Jenifer worked at a temporary staffing agency on the first floor.
