In a photo sighted by Newsfile360.com, the MDK look alike was spotted in a black Hoodie and a black face mask.
The look-alike who goes by the name B’Doe also happens to be a huge fan of Medikal.
Per our findings, B’’Doe is a video director and Fashion Icon.
B’Doe is the exact photocopy of the “Risky” hitmaker. He has the same hairstyle and somehow portrays a similar voice.
Well, one might think B’Doe admires Medikal so much to the extent of copying his looks but in this case, B’Doe is in with his own style and brand.
As a reminder, Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale and industry mate, Medikal, have been granted a ¢100,000 bail each.
The duo reappeared before an Accra Circuit Court on Tuesday, October 26, to continue their respective legal battles.
Comedian Waris latest photo with mom has tugged on everybody’s heartstrings.
One hard-working mom’s reaction to the surprise of a lifetime will give you all the feels.
Comedian Waris ‘Seriously Unserious’ show receives huge patronage.
A Ghanaian woman who worked as a security guard and raised her children as a single mom got the surprise of her life when she saw her son cracking ribs of his fans on stage at the ‘Seriously Unserious’ show over the weekend.
It was a full house as hundreds thronged the Snap Cinemas, Accra, Saturday to watch Comedian Waris as a headliner of a show for the first time, six years after venturing into standup comedy.
Considering that the event was widely publicized with a tall list of performers which included colleagues DKB, OB Amponsah, Lekzy Decomic, Alo Wess and MJ the Comedian, patrons were in anticipation of a great night.
Comedian Waris mounted the stage amid resounding cheers from the audience whose desire to watch the man of the night, had at this point, reached a crescendo.
His entry, although not the most epic and not the most dramatic, got off well when Black Sherif’s ‘Second Sermon’ played in the background. This song was relevant to that entry because it also sums up Comedian Waris’ life experiences in Accra, having endured struggles ranging from economic quandary to disappointments.
For close to an hour, Comedian Waris entertained patrons with a variety of content. His rib-cracking script captured the standard of living in the country, complex relationships between individuals and groups, soccer as well as social deviance.
Comedian Waris used the opportunity to encourage persons who may be swamped with challenges to not lose faith but keep their hopes alive for a change in the narrative.
Recently, a photograph was posted on Twitter that has tugged on everybody’s heartstrings. It was shared by the “Professional idiot” Comedian Waris, who is known for sharing positive and wholesome content on social media.

As a philanthropic tradition, Mr. Adolf, an Entrepreneur who is also Associate Member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), supports the Manya Krobo community to enable them enjoy their celebration of Ngmayem.

Google will move AdSense from a second-price auction model to a first-price auction by the end of 2021, the company announced Thursday.
There is no action for advertisers or publishers to take and these changes will occur automatically.
Why is AdSense moving to a first-price auction?
On display ad selling platforms, a first-price auction simplifies the buying experience for advertisers because the final price reflects the winner’s bid. Google Ad Manager and AdMob have already moved to a first price auction, and by streamlining the auction model across AdSense, Ad Manager, and AdMob, advertisers benefit from a consistent process across Google’s ad selling platforms. This helps to grow advertiser spending confidence across the display advertising ecosystem – and an increase in spending confidence over time will benefit publishers.
Why is AdSense making this change now?
In the early days of online display advertising, ad space was typically sold to advertisers in a second-price auction, where the final price paid by the winner was determined by the amount of the second-highest bid. Over time, many ad selling platforms in the display advertising ecosystem, including Ad Manager, AdMob, and many third-party ad exchanges, switched their auctions to first-price.
In a first-price auction, the final price reflects the winning bid. In the coming months, AdSense will move to a first-price auction. This will help advertisers by simplifying how they buy online ads and make it easier for them to buy your ad space sold on AdSense.
Which AdSense products are affected?
The move to a first-price auction only affects the following AdSense products:
AdSense for Content
AdSense for Video
AdSense for Games
This move does not affect:
AdSense for Search
AdSense for Shopping
Do I need to take any action?
No. You do not need to do anything, these changes will update automatically.
Will my AdSense earnings be impacted?
Due to the dynamic auction environment, we cannot predict how specific AdSense publishers will be impacted. But, on average we expect the impact to AdSense publishers’ earnings overall from the move to a first-price auction to be neutral. When Ad Manager moved to a first-price auction, there was a neutral to slightly positive impact to publisher earnings on average.
