Chris Brown in Ghana: 'Kiss Kiss' Ghana Goodbye

"Bad boy" singer Chris Brown supposedly made Ghanaians mad last week when he lit up a joint on stage at a concert for the launch of a Technology City Project called Hope City. Let's be clear from the start that we are NOT Chris Brown fans. Dude is an idiot. However, executive director of Perfector of SentimentsJonathan Osei-Owusu's petition for prosecution is a little lame — we searched but couldn't find an online copy of it. Osei-Owusu went on to say that Brown "is on video to have encouraged the audience to take up arms against people who stand in their way to smoking weed." We watched the video (above) and Chris definitely wasn't on the militant tip.

Webehigh.org seems to think that Ghana, Accra in particular, is a fine spot to light up. Based on their scale of 1-5 (1 = very legal, 5 = virtually legal) Accra ranks 3.5 - virtually very legal in clubs, bars, and beaches. Cops focus more on "traffic management and not security." We'd say the only mistake made in this story was letting Chris Brown in Ghana. Garbage in, garbage out.

Let Jojo Abot's New Afrofuturistic Video Hypnotize You

The Ghanaian artist releases the new video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," an entirely iPhone-recorded track.

Jojo Abot is rounding out a strong year which has seen her tour South Africa, release the NGIWUNKULUNKULU EP and work with institutions like the New Museum, Red Bull Sound Select and MoMA on her art and performances.

Jojo is now sharing her latest music video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," a song featured on her iPhone-only production project, Diary Of A Traveler.

"Nye Veve Sese is an invitation to let go of the burden of pain and suffering that keeps us from becoming our best and greatest selves," a statement from Jojo's team reads. "Asking the question of why pain is pleasurable to both the one in pain and the source of the pain. Often time the two being one and the same."

Watch her new "meditative piece," which was shot in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, below.

Jojo Abot will be playing her final US show of the year in New York City alongside Oshun on October 26 at Nublu 151. Grab your tickets here.
