Contempt case against Rex Omar, 14 others adjourned to May 17

Mr.Rex Omar

The Accra Human Rights Court yesterday adjourned to May 17, 2021, the case in which a lawyer is seeking the court to jail musician, Rex Omar, and 14  others for contempt of court.

Mr Gabriel Awunyo, who is representing George William Dickson, veteran musician, Akosua Adjepong, and two others, was in court on Wednesday to move the contempt motion against the respondents, but was told the presiding judge, Justice Gifty Addo was indisposed.

Mr Awunyo has stated that the respondents disrespected the court by electing board members of Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) when there was a pending suit concerning the election.

His said his clients filed the instant action in their capacity as members of GHAMRO, a company Limited by guarantee and registered under the laws of Ghana.

On November 4, 2020, the applicants initiated action against the respondents, who are board members of GHAMRO, and subsequently served respondents with the process.

The applicants said they wanted the court to injunct the election of members to the GHAMRO board until the final determination of the matter.

The applicants averred that since the commencement of the action, Yaw Oxbon, a respondent, had at all material times represented the respondents in court.

In the affidavit in support of the motion to commit the respondents to prison for contempt of court, counsel for applicants, Mr Awunyo stated that the respondents had openly discussed the matter on radio, television and on social media how they were determined to go on with the election of new board members of GHAMRO regardless of the lawsuit.

He said the contempt shown by the respondents followed an entrenched pattern of behavior over the years.

The applicants said they also filed another application and served on the respondents specifically to restrain them  from holding elections to appoint a new board, and that the respondents were in court on April 15, this year, to confirm that the applicants’ interlocutory application was served on them.

However, the respondents went ahead to elect members on the April 19, 2021, the night before the motion was to be heard.

The conduct of the respondents, the lawyer argued was likely to prejudice a fair hearing of the motion.

He said the respondents were doing this with the full knowledge that there was a pending suit for injunction application which had been served on them seeking to restrain them from electing a new board, but continued unjustly enrich themselves at the expense of the members.

Mr Awunyo contends that the only intent of the respondents was to bring the authority and administration of the law into disrespect and interfere with the pending litigation.

Drop your old friends – Azigiza advises Moesha

Former media personality turned pastor, Azigiza Jnr advises actress Moesha to drop her old friends
Azigiza Jnr

Former Joy FM presenter turned pastor, Victor Kpakpo Addo, popularly known as Azigiza Jnr, is entreating actress Moesha Boduong to part ways with her old friends if she intends to really stay on the new path she has chosen.

According to him, the temptation to slip back into her former life will be greater if she continued to hold on to her old friends who might have had a negative influence on her.
 
Proffering words of encouragement to Moesha, whose disclosure of being born again has drawn mixed reactions among her followers and friends, Azigiza Jnr, who was Best West African DJ in 1991 and 1993, told Graphic Showbiz on Monday, July 19, that the latter’s repentance would have no impact if she kept her old circle of friends.

“I don’t really know much about Moesha except from current happenings but I will advise her to change her friends. I have been through whatever she is going through but you see, your growth and the outcome of the worth of life should override people who don’t share in your new interests.

“You can’t be with people who you know will continue to lead you astray when they are in your lives. Today, they will say ‘let’s go here’, tomorrow, let’s go there and get you distracted and before you know it, you are back at what you stopped,” he stated.

ust like how Moesha is being trolled for her decision, Azigiza Jnr, who is presently the lead pastor of Citizen Fellowship Church on the Spintex Road, disclosed that the story was not different from his in 1998.

“Can you believe that some of my friends even thought I was mad or going crazy? Yes, it may sound funny but that was what I was labelled, a mad person because I wanted to live right. See, it’s better we tell the truth to people that knowing God comes with challenges.

“The storms of your life don’t calm down because you have repented. If it were so, there wouldn’t have been a storm for the disciples to call on Jesus to intervene in the book of Matthew. The question is, was Jesus not with them? Why then should they still experience a storm?” he asked.

was very important for the Away Bus actress to avoid drawing unnecessary attention to herself by always being in the news.

They pointed out such actions will be detrimental to her spiritual growth since there would be differing views on her decision.

“For you not to be broken by what people are saying, you need to separate yourself from such people because so many things have changed around you that they may not understand, including your goals and your targets,” Yaw Siki said.

Yaw Siki, who gave his life to Christ after what he said was a miraculous escape from the grips of death, said he had come to understand that God had ways of saving people from destruction.

“God used my accident to save me because even doctors who took care of me couldn’t explain how I survived, it was beyond medical knowledge. That was when I realised that there is a higher power and I prayed to experience it.

“Now, I don’t know what Moesha has been through but if she is truly convinced that what she is going through is real and divine, then she should hold on and not give up,” he told Graphic Showbiz
