Musician Castro Destroyer to be legally declared dead next year

Musician Castro Destroyer to be legally declared dead next year.

Hiplife Musician Castro Destroyer would be declared legally dead next year as he marks his 38th birthday today.

The singer and a female pillion companion Janet Bandu disappeared during a Jet Ski cruise on the Volta River on July 6, 2014, and per the laws of the country, they can only be declared legally dead by a court after seven (7) years.

Position of the law on citizens who go missing

That position of the law was explained to Graphic Showbiz by an entertainment lawyer, Mr. Kwame Koduah Atuahene on Tuesday when Graphic Showbiz consulted him on the issue in 2014.

He said according to The Evidence Act of 1975, Section 33;

  • a person can only be declared legally dead after seven (7) years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him.

He added that;

  • in the event the missing person left a Will, anyone who stands to derive any benefits such as spouse, parents, or business partners, would have to be withheld until after seven years have elapsed.

“If there were any proceeds to be derived from joint ventures such as businesses and song collaborations that Castro has done with anyone in terms of sales and proceeds, it would still have to split jointly, this is done to ensure no one tramples on his rights,” he said.

Lawyer Atuahene, however, explained that these were presumptions, and as such, if anyone could provide any facts or evidence of Castro’s availability or if he could be found before the seven years elapses, then everything would proceed as normal since he would be deemed as being alive.

It’s been a tradition in Ghana mostly among the senior celebrities whereby they prefer to keep their kids away from their popularity.

But with the growing social media engagement, this scenario is gradually going extinct. The private lives of most celebrities have now become public with the advent of social media.

Amakye Dede, the ‘Iron Boy’ hitmaker is a legendary highlife musician with so much love from Ghanaians but not everybody knows much about his family affairs.

 

Photos of Jenessa Amakye, a damsel believe to be the daughter of Dada Amakye Dede are trending on social media. The look-alike of both tells it all. In one of the photos, Amakye Dede is seen carrying little Jenessa.

Ghana’s legendary Inspector Bediako gets a remake, now on Showmax

Ghana’s legendary Inspector Bediako gets a remake, now on Showmax

Get ready to be glued to your screens as Inspector Bediako, Ghana’s hit 90s detective series and one of the most loved TV series ever produced in Ghana gets a remake in a brand new Akwaaba Magic series, also available to stream Showmax.

First released in 1993, Inspector Bediako starred Oscar Provencal in the lead role of Inspector Bediako, a detective who’s adept at catching criminals no matter the situation.

Now remade with a fresh cast, the all-new Inspector Bediako is an eight-part series that follows Anthony Woode (Inside Out) as Inspector Bediako Jnr, aka Ike, a young detective who is thrown into the middle of a drug investigation after his promotion to an inspector at the Criminal Investigation Department, Ghana Police.

More than two decades later, can he prove that he is worthy to wear his father’s legendary shoes?

Like his father, Ike uses smart and creative means to investigate and solve domestic criminal cases, from kidnapping and corruption to murder and robberies, to protect the public from danger.

But even though he is his own man, as he tries to prove himself to his colleagues, his legendary father is never too far away. Provencal reprises his role as Inspector Bediako Snr who, now retired,  guides and advises his son on the most complex cases.

Inspector Bediako is produced and directed by legendary Ghanaian filmmaker Ivan Quashigah (Things We Do for Love, YOLO, To Have and To Hold), who has described it as “a truly Ghanaian investigative crime series” that tackles local crime cases.

“We scan around for stories, from newspapers, from the news and from people around us,” Quashigah explains. “If we deal with these (local) issues instead of trying to copy shows like NCIS, Hawaii Five-0 and other investigative productions, we will be able to present something that is unique to us and that will easily be understood by our people.”

Inspector Bediako also stars comedian and actor Kalybos (Ghana Jollof) as Nasiru, the best in his field, who examines and analyses the toughest evidence; Vincent McCauley (The Things We Do for Love) as the computer genius Morkporkpor; Brian Angels (The Burial of Kojo) as Adjetey aka Blade, Ike’s rival and one of the best officers in the unit; Darlyn Adu-Gyamfi (Black Lady Goddess) as Grace, a tough officer with a score to settle; Ekow Blankson (To Have and to Hold) as Chief of Police; and the 2020 winner of Ghana’s Most Beautiful pageant, Naa Dedei Botchwey, as Adjoa, Ike’s love interest.

Catch Inspector Bediako on Showmax, with new episodes releasing every Monday at the same time as they air on Akwaaba Magic.
