Award-winning gospel artiste, Diana Hamilton, whose hit song, Mo Ne Yo, is still receiving massive air play on radio and television stations in the country, says she is not in competition with anyone in the gospel industry but appreciates the way the industry is improving with great talents.

The gospel artiste, whose goal is to continuously improve herself, was recently rated as one of the most viewed Ghanaian artistes on YouTube by the International Music Magazine Billboard.

Reacting to media reports, which seem to suggest that she is in competition with her colleague gospel artiste, Joe Mettle and others, she said “I do not think there is competition between us. I am not competing with other artistes. I have not heard anybody comparing me to Joe mettle; I think the goal is one—to draw people to Christ,” she told Class FM.

Quoting the scripture to support her statement, she said, “The Bible says that the harvest is big but the labourers are few; so I think the more the merrier so that we can draw people to Christ and so I do not think there is competition between us.”

Diana Hamilton, who is the brain behind the annual gospel concert dubbed, The Experience with Diana Hamilton, believes her music ministry has a key role in edifying, encouraging and exhorting the saints as the coming of the Lord draws near and not to compete with her fellow colleagues in the industry.

A nurse by profession, the I Believe hitmaker announced her presence on the gospel music scene with her first album, Osoro be kasa, in 2007.

Her second album titled Ensi Wo Yie, which was released in 2010, gained her prominence in the Ghanaian gospel music industry.

Diana Hamilton, who has performed on both local and international gospel platforms, was one of the headline artistes for the 2019 Harvest Praise.

With a number of awards to her credit, she won the Best Africa Artiste, Europe, at the Africa Gospel Awards in 2011.

She grabbed two awards out of six nominations at the 2019 edition of the African Gospel Music and Media Awards.

Again in the same year, she won the Gospel Song of the year at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) with her hit song, Mo Ne Yo; and the Gospel Artiste of the Year.

Authorities in New York state said a pair of off-duty police officers came to the rescue of a hawk they spotted stuck in the front bumper of a truck.

The Nassau County Police Department said Marine Bureau Officers Schwaner and Leek were on their way to work about 6:20 a.m. Wednesday when they spotted the hawk stuck in the front bumper of a parked Dodge Ram pickup truck.

The officers stopped to investigate and discovered the bird, a red-tailed hawk, was still alive, but unable to pull itself free from the bumper.

The officers carefully extracted the raptor from the vehicle and took it to the Nassau County Police Marine Bureau base in Bay Park, where they contacted the Volunteers for Wildlife rescue group in Locust Valley.

Volunteers transported the bird from the police station to the wildlife facility, where it is being treated for its injuries.

Police were forced to break up a lockdown party after more than 30 people set up a ‘huge tented village’ in a woodland area last night.

Officers said the revellers had lit a fire and reported finding bottles of alcohol and nitrous oxide cannisters littered at the scene.

Officers from Cheshire Police’s Rural Crime Team assisted their colleagues at Derbyshire Police in dealing with the incident near the Cheshire-Derbyshire border last night, Stoke-on-Trent Live reports.

Despite lockdown restrictions slowly being eased, mass gatherings are still banned under government guidance.

Currently only six people from different households are permitted to meet in an outdoor space.

Patrols attending the incident last night discovered the crowd set up around a fire, with alcohol bottles and nitrous oxide cannisters littering the ground.

A Cheshire Police Rural Crime Team spokesman tweeted: “30+ adults set up just over the border in Derbyshire.

“Cheshire RCT supported Derbyshire Police patrols and ensured the group packed up and moved on.

“A huge tented village set in the trees with alcohol lay around, a fire, and with nitrous oxide cannisters littered.”

Staffordshire Police have also pledged to clamp down on any such events taking place this weekend.

Assistant Chief Constable Simon Tweats said: “With everything else the police are contending with at the moment, this really shouldn’t be one of them.

“It’s precisely what Staffordshire Police will be looking out for today and tomorrow and disrupting straight away – wherever it might be.”

Former Musicians Union of Ghana president Bice Osei Kuffour has won his bid to become the New Patriotic Party parliamentary candidate for the Asante Akyem South Constituency in the Ashanti Region.

Obour is contesting with three other people including the incumbent Member of Parliament Hon. Kwaku Asante Boateng, who has served two terms on the ticket of the NPP.

Provisional results according to Gyesi Boako as sighted on his Facebook page by attractivemustapha.com show that Obour has defeated the others.

A source in the Constituency says they believe the former MUSIGA boss will improve the Asante Akyem Constituency in terms of development and enhance the progress of its people better than the other aspirants.

He is reported to have already completed some projects including roads networks.

Obour’s father’s death was a major blow to his campaign especially because it was alleged that he died of Covid-19 and the subsequent brouhaha surrounding the burial but he seems to have bounced back strongly.
