Baby Dies As Doctor Cuts Oxygen Supply Over Nonpayment Of GHC533 Bill

A nine-week-old baby boy has died at the St Gregory Hospital at Kasoa in the Central Region because his parents could not afford the cost of aiding his breathing with an oxygen machine.

Little Prosper’s parents tell Joy News a medical doctor on duty pulled the plug from the oxygen machine because they could not pay GHS533 to keep their son alive.

Hospital authorities are tight-lipped on the issue explaining they are investigating the circumstances that led to the death of the baby.

Prosper was born on January 19, 2018, fell sick and was taken to the hospital on March 5 and died three weeks later.

The baby’s mother, Sefakor, told Joy News Joojo Cobbinah, that a few weeks after the baby was born she realized he not breathing well.

According to Sefakor, after preliminary tests, the St Gregory Hospital admitted them with the intention of transferring the case to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital subsequently.

The baby was given blood and kept on the oxygen machine because he could not breathe well.

However, when it became clear the family could not pay for the cost of treatment before the intended transfer to Korle Bu, the doctor decided to take a drastic decision.

“That Saturday, the Doctor came, he ask me that I hear from my husband [about the bills] I say I didn’t hear. Then he removed the oxygen…it is too late,” Sefakor managed in the little English she could speak.

The baby’s father, Kennedy Kwao, said he chose the name ‘Prosper’ because he was hopeful that the boy will grow up to become a prosperous man. That hope, however, has been curtailed.

Stonebwoy finally comments on Prophet Nigel’s death prophecy!

BET African Act, Stonebwoy, has finally opened up on Prophet Nigel Gaisie’s prophecy about his death in an exclusive interview with Berla Mundi on her Late Afternoon Show on GHOne TV.

The ‘Bawasaba’ crooner who spoke for about seven minutes was asked if he believed in prophecies for which he answered that as long as he believes in God he believes in prophecies.

He said there are some behind the scenes issue that led to his wife going to the church in the first place which he is not willing to share.

Stonebwoy said he respects men of God a lot because they are God’s children, and since he believes in God when such prophecies come he pays attention to them because he believes they are coming from God.

According to Stonebwoy, when prophecies of death are made public it puts fear in people and takes the concentration of the prophecy itself away and people begin to speculate.

“First and foremost, I respect men of God a lot because they are all God’s children; so as I believe in God, when such prophecies come I believe that I will also pay heed and pay attention just because I believe that it is coming from God and also trust that I will make an effort. That is how come you saw my wife in that situation although it wasn’t supposed to be that way.

“What I know is that prophecies such as death and the rest when publicly broken, prophecies of death and evil and such puts fear in people and causes more damage and takes away the concentration of what is meant to be done, that is the situation,” he said.

Stonebwoy told Berla Mundi that he was not scared when he heard the prophecy because as a human being we will all die, it is only the time that no one knows, and as humans, if we live in fear it makes life difficult.

He said men of God should not put fear in people with their prophecies, especially those who use these prophecies for purposes of fame and not necessarily because God has revealed anything to them.

Readers will recall that sometime last month, the Founder and General Overseer of the True Word Fire Prophetic Ministry, Prophet Nigel Gaisie, revealed that dancehall act, Livingstone Etse Satekla, popularly known as Stonebwoy, would die next year before Easter.

Speaking during a church service, the self-acclaimed prophet who was ministering to the wife of the singer, Dr. Louisa Satekla, revealed that it was ‘scheduled’ for Stonebwoy to die in an accident.

The prophet added that the musician was being targeted by another musician who had ties with the Illuminati.

Speaking to the wife of the artiste, the prophet added that the plot to cut short the life of the ‘People Dey’ singer had been going on for a while but was always being foiled.

‘Hypocritical’ Christians Pushed Kuami Eugene Into Secular Music – Aduhemaa

Kuame Eugene used to be the African Prince of Worship and released gospel songs like “Heaven”, “No Jesus no Life”, “Nana Nyame” and others is now with Lynx Entertainment giving the world hit songs like Angela, Confusion and many other secular tunes.

It is not clear why the ‘Angela’ singer who loved the business of God at age 16 suddenly decided to be a secular musician but fast-rising singer, Aduhemaa has blamed Christians for Kuami Eugene’s shift.

According to the up and coming artiste, Christians and gospel artistes do not give helping hand to the young ones struggling to make it in the gospel music industry.

Speaking with Zionfelix.net in an interview, the singer and songwriter opined that the frustration most young musicians face when not popular might have pushed Kuami Eugene to change genre after MTN Hitmaker season 5. To her, gospel artistes aside winning souls for Christ want their talent to be recognized but Christians who are to help them rather promote secular songs.

“When you are a gospel artiste, your purpose is to reach people, inspire, let them know about God and salvation and the next purpose is to put my gift out there for people to appreciate it.

When you are doing all these songs and nobody is appreciating it and even the Christians who have seen it will not help with your promotion, it makes you frustrated. It discourages you because you are not fulfilling all your aims as a gospel artiste.” she said.

The artiste real name Julia Annor-Yeboah continued that she will not blame Kuami Eugene for switching from the gospel genre because Christians and other believers appreciate worldly songs.

“I will never blame Kuami Eugene because he couldn’t fullfill all the two purposes of his gospel music career – to win souls for Christ and also push his talent out there .

If I for instance release a secular song and wear a sexy dress for the video, it will sell.”

Peeved Aduhemaa further stressed that “they won’t support you but if you shift to another genre, they will tell you to turn to Jesus as if singing love song is a sin when it will sell you more than the gospel they are not ready to help. I think the guy got a management who advised him to switch from the gospel. The Christians and gospel artistes don’t support the young ones. If nobody will support the young gospel artistes, that is what will happen at the end.”

“Generally Christians do not support the ministry of the young ones. Nobody comments, share and supports when you release a good material, it will just be friends and family until God opens a way and you get a favour somewhere.

When they want to put you on their programs, they will strike a deal with you that you have to get a certain number of people at the event before you get a certain percentage.” She added.

Aduhemaa is known for songs like “Woye”, “Timeless”, “Baba Nagode” and many others.
