The Registrar of the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat, Kingsley Agyemang, has disclosed that his outfit had budgeted about GHC 80 million to be awarded in scholarships for the 2020/2021 academic year.

#3. Boity causes a stir by calling SA men roaches

The “Wuz Dat?” singer joined in, sharing her disdain for South African men. Replying to a tweet asking women to refrain from going back and forth with men trying to argue about Mihlali’s video. She said: “They DGAF. Don’t let the roaches bring you down to their level.”
Boity has since faced a backlash from men in South Africa – celebrities and non-celebrities, for her comments.
