On Friday, WebMD and Georgia Health News revealed that Georgia had three census tracts the EPA identified as having elevated cancer risks because of a toxic gas called ethylene oxide.
Although he has been quiet on the music scene for a while, Hiplife artiste Luther says he is the best male vocalist in Ghana at the moment.
“The others are trying but they know deep within their hearts that I am the best male vocalist in Ghana.”
“Apart from winning Best Male Vocalist in 2016 and 2017 at the Bass Awards the other artistes in Ghana know they don’t come close when you talk about the male artiste with with the finest voice,” he told Showbiz at the recent launch of this year’s Homowo Festival at the Accra Tourist Information Centre.
Asked if the likes of KiDi, Kuami Eugene, King Promise or Akwaboah are not better than him, Luther said they don’t come close to him adding that if a contest was held today, he would win hands down.
“I am not blowing my own horn but the truth has to be told, I am best at what I do and I don’t see any competitor in Ghana at the moment. Maybe when I am not around, but so far as I’m alive no one comes close,” he said.
Asked what he has been up to, Luther who is known for songs like Dormi Tamor Son, Ooossshhhhh, Agboro, Double T and We No Dey Fear said he was taking care of family.
“I took a break to cater for my family but I am back full time. I have a lot of singles I will be dropping this year and I want Ghanaians to watch out for that,” he said.
Luther is among the artistes performing at the Homowo Festival scheduled to take place next month and he says he is going all out to make the event a memorable one.
“It’s been long since I jumped on any event and I am asking Ghanaians to come see me and my other Ga artistes rock the event,” he added.

Ghanaian highlife singer and songwriter eShun Esi Ethel known in the showbiz industry as eShun has finally revealed that he is no more with her former label and boss of Quophi Mens Label.
This comes after rumours went viral that the songstress has left her former label because of love. Speaking today on “Showbiz Agenda” on Zylofon FM 102.1 the ” Akyia” hitmaker revealed to Sammy Flex that, even though she has left her former label, she hasn’t joined a new label but has a team called Eshun music.
She further cleared rumours which went viral about her dating her former manager, revealing it was a rumour because she never dated her former manager.
“I never dated my boss and we have not stopped working because of love issues as people are saying. All is well with us at the moment but work is not happening currently because of a mutual agreement we have” he added.
“It got to a time that I met a man. He was a captain. I went for a show in Takoradi and after the show, he approached me and collected my number and my boss’s number. He told me he saw my performance and he wanted to help me so we should bring a proposal. We went with the proposal and he later told me that he wanted to travel with me but I shouldn’t involve manager. He told me he wanted to have an affair with me explaining everything that he could help me if I agree. The money he mentioned was mind blowing which was even bigger that the proposal. I told him I can’t and he was like if I can’t, he wouldn’t help me and that was it” She narrated.
When she was asked by the host Sammy Flex whether she was ready to settle down with a man who will approach her with love and work, she replied saying“; Yes I wouldn’t mind to settle down with him if only I like him. We have artistes who have their managers as husbands so if I love him and he is nice, then I wouldn’t mind but if it happens that by force if you don’t settle down with me, I wouldn’t help you even if I don’t like him, then I wouldn’t” She replied.

RuffTown Records newly signed act Fantana has stated that female artists need to get the same support as male artists in the music industry.
The “So What” hitmaker has expressed the need for women to be given the same attention as men do in the entertainment industry.
Speaking on DayBreak Hitz on Hitz Fm with Andy Dosty, she asked for the need to secure the same airplay time for female artistes. ” female artists should also receive equal number of airplay as the male artists. When a guy has only one song, you play it back to back, so then the woman should also receive the same number of plays as well.”
Panels on the show were also impressed with her confidence and express the need for the female act to familiarize herself with the local Ghanaian dialects so as to appeal more to her fans. Her new single is out and is receiving massive airplay.

A woman whose orgasms are triggered by things as minor as potholes and aircraft turbulence says the condition has ruined her life.
The mum, identified only as Maria, 61, suffers from PGAD (Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder) which affects an estimated one per cent of women.
She can find herself unable to avoid climaxing when out and about, even if she feels no sexual desire.
‘Most of the time I feel like I am sitting on an ant’s nest,’ Maria, from Glasgow, said.
‘There’s times where it’s a tickle all day, but then something sets it off and it’s a full-blown orgasm.
‘Driving over potholes, aircraft turbulence, escalators, the vibration from violins – I don’t know how many women could say they went to a Shania Twain concert and she made them orgasm.
‘Ninety per cent of my life has been wrecked and the other ten per cent is not so great either.
‘I had to give up volunteering because just moving can set it off.
‘One of my friends said to me I’d become a recluse.’
The widow, from East Dunbartonshire, has tried numbing gels, pelvic floor physiotherapy and steroid injections directly into her clitoris, have proved ineffective.
She is afraid to try Botox in case it leaves her incontinent after a routine gynaecological examination at Glasgow’s Stobhill Hospital in September 2017, where a consultant ‘rammed’ a speculum into her.
The following month she began experiencing distressing symptoms for the first time which would eventually be diagnosed as PGAD, caused by damage to her pudendal nerve.
Maria, who has adult children, said: “To think that this damage was caused by a consultant’s incompetence and then you have incontinence as a result of things you do to try to cure the damage is just ludicrous.
She has been lobbying to be referred abroad for treatment, but despite the efforts of her MP Jo Swinson, the request has been declined by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde health board.
Instead, the trust has referred her to London for treatment, as Scotland has no specialist in PGAD – which was formally recognised as a disorder in 2013 and affects one per cent of women.
A spokesman for NHS GGC said: ‘We have explored and exhausted all treatments available locally for this patient and have been unable to relieve their symptoms.
‘Therefore, we have offered to refer them to a specialist consultant in London.’
Ms Swinson said: ‘It’s disappointing that it has taken so long for the health board to acknowledge that they are not able to offer effective treatment themselves.
‘However, I am glad to see that things are moving in a positive direction and I hope that this helps to identify a successful treatment plan for Maria.’
Mum-of-three Maria said women who suffer from the condition ‘should know they are not freaks’.
She added: ‘People shouldn’t have to go through this and be ridiculed.
‘It’s far from funny. This has broken up marriages.
‘Some women have taken their own lives.
‘It saps your confidence because, to be honest, there are days I wish I wasn’t here.’
The health board have disputed that the damage to her pudendal nerve was definitely caused by the smear test.

Ghana’s best-established technology and business hubs have joined forces to launch the ‘25 Days of Wow’ tour; an entrepreneurial journey with various stops across the nation, concluding on Wednesday 7 August.
The Ghana Hubs Network (GHN) consists of 32 innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem enablers across 8 Regions of the country who have come together to use shared ideas and resources to develop human resource and equip innovative individuals with the requisite skills, build capacity to grow local innovations & businesses, build capacity for jobs creation and generate income.
“Ghana Hubs Network (GTBHN) consist of hubs in Ghana, (generic innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem enablers across the country) who have come together to use shared ideas and resources to develop human resource and equip innovative individuals with the requisite skills, build capacity to grow local innovations & businesses, enhance capacity for jobs creation and generate income.”
The hubs are all part of the Ghana Hubs Network (GHN), an alliance of 32 technology and business hubs that provide invaluable support and education to regional entrepreneurs. GHN was set up in 2017 to boost collaboration between the hubs and facilitate greater commercial innovation and opportunities within Ghana’s startup business ecosystem.
Given that these regional tech and innovation hubs serve as conduits to collaboration and mentorship, the tour will see a bus full of innovators and hub managers tour the country in 25 days, visiting a number of GHN hubs and entrepreneurs. The group will also run regional ‘hackathons’ to gather feedback to create a draft entrepreneurship act (legislation) in support of the current draft entrepreneurship policy. The legislation will be instrumental in stimulating and supporting commercial creativity in Ghana.
The main objectives of 25 Days of WOW Tour are to:
Engage local authorities (DCEs and chiefs) and corporate institutions to understand the impact of hubs, the work they do and the role they can play to sustain them
Foster stronger collaboration among the Ghana Hubs Network with a network-wide participation in locally organised activities by the individual member hubs
Promote the existence and roles of the Ghana Hubs Network and its international partners to all stakeholders across the country.
Organise and collate practical feedback key challenges facing entrepreneurs across Ghana via regional policy hackathons and town hall meetings.
Draft an Entrepreneurship Act through nationwide consultations and share with Government.
GHN organised the 25 Days of Wow tour in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), a German development agency and with technical support from i4Policy.
GHN’s mission is to advocate for the right policies for an enabling environment and help grow traction for our sustainable operations; and to lead the development of a cohesive and strengthened tech and business ecosystem in Ghana.
