“I FEET VERY SAD FOR JULIET IBRAHIM”- Counselor Lutterodt

Outspoken Counselor, George Lutterodt has descended heavily on Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim for stating unequivocally that she wants to focus on her business and son but not marriage.

Earlier, the ‘Shattered Romance’ actress who was formerly married to a Ghanaian businessman told Sunday Scoop in Nigeria, “It is interesting you ask about wedding bells. I have always said that my focus at this point is my son and business. Creating a balance between being a successful business woman and a good mother is a lot to handle and that is my focus…”.

“The biggest misconception about me would be that people think everything comes easy for me. They feel the outcome looks easier than the process and that is alright,” she added.

But Counselor Lutterodt said when a lady is marked by despair or loss of hope in marriage, then they tend to make comments such as Juliet Ibrahim’s.
He noted that comments such as Juliet Ibrahim’s comment are an acronym ‘MFS’ – ‘Mafa no Saa’, meaning ‘I will take it like that’ in relation to her current status in life as not wanting a man.

“When you get to ‘MFS’ you talk like Juliet Ibrahim. I pray that all those putting pressure on her to get married should keep up with the pressure till she gets married. The success of a woman is not being a CEO but being the head of family. It is men who prepare for marriage. Women don’t prepare for marriage. What men can do women can’t do…” he explained.

“I felt very sad that she wants people to stop putting pressure on her. I see that as one of the disappointments. The success of a woman is not owning a company and being the CEO. But rather making a family and making a man respected at the beautiful gate of the whole world…” he added.

Nevertheless, he further added that he rendered women who are proudly celebrating their kids without their dads are invalid as such they should do well to let their kids know who their father is.

Hence women who claim to be hustling for properties should know it yields no marriage as such it can be a burden for men to lay proposal at their feet.
“All the born ones who are proud and celebrating without men are invalid. If your son’s father is not around, let the child know who their father is. Make sure to marry a man who is not a boy but a father…,”

“If you could have married a lady you’re better off than making her marrying you. Coming down to Ghana to all the sisters who are hustling, the properties don’t give you marriage. It is a lie if they say they don’t want to marry. They are sometimes burdens. Monkeys play by sizes…” he explained.

“If you don’t get a man to marry you, buy a mirror and examine yourself well…” he said on Starr FM.

WRONG FILM NAMED BEST PICTURE AT 2017 OSCARS

Moonlight has won best picture at the Oscars – but only after Faye Dunaway initially said La La Land had won.

Warren Beatty was handed the previous winner’s envelope, containing a card saying “Emma Stone, La La Land”, resulting in the error.

The team from La La Land was in the middle of its acceptance speeches when the mistake was discovered.

Stone said backstage afterwards: “Is that the craziest Oscar moment of all time? Cool! It’s going to be history.”

Musical La La Land won six Oscars including best director and best actress. Moonlight also won adapted screenplay and best supporting actor.

Damien Chazelle, director of La La Land, became the youngest filmmaker to win a best director Oscar at the age of 32.

Bonnie and Clyde stars Beatty and Dunaway announced La La Land had taken the best picture prize – but then the musical’s producer Jordan Horowitz announced there had been a mistake.

He said: “This is not a joke. Moonlight is best picture,” and showed the camera the card that revealed the winner.

Two La La Land producers had already given their acceptance speeches before the mistake was revealed.

Host Jimmy Kimmel joked that he knew he would mess up compering the ceremony, and added: “Personally I blame Steve Harvey for this,” referring to Harvey’s mistake in announcing the Miss Universe winner in 2015.

‘In my dreams’

Beatty had opened the envelope but hesitated to read out what it said in side, leaving it to Dunaway to announce La La Land.

He returned to the microphone to say: “I want to tell you what happened. I opened the envelope and it said ‘Emma Stone, La La Land’, and that is why I took such a long look at Faye and at you.

“I wasn’t trying to be funny. This is Moonlight for best picture.”

The film’s director Barry Jenkins said: “Very clearly even in my dreams this can’t be true. But to hell with it because this is true. It’s true, its not fake.”

Paying tribute to the team behind La La Land for the way they handled the mistake, he said: “We have been on the road with these guys and it was so gracious and so generous of them.”

Emma Stone, who won the coveted best actress prize, said backstage.

“I’m so excited for Moonlight. Of course it was an amazing thing to hear La La Land and I would love to win best picture. But we are so excited for Moonlight. I think it is one of the best films of all time.

“Is that the craziest Oscar moment of all time? Cool! It’s going to be history.”

She also said that she still had the envelope for best actress in her hand, although there are always two envelopes (one for back-up), which might explain why the mistake occurred.

La La Land also picked up best cinematography, best score and best original song for City of Stars.

It also won best production design.

Manchester by the Sea won two awards – one of them was for best original screenplay.

Acting winners

  • Viola Davis – best supporting actress, Fences
  • Mahershala Ali – best supporting actor, Moonlight
  • Emma Stone – best actress, La La Land
  • Casey Affleck – best actor, Manchester by the Sea

Davis, who had been nominated twice previously for Doubt and The Help, also thanked her “captain”, Washington.

Host Jimmy Kimmel put on a strong performance, with much of his patter unsurprisingly relating to the current US political climate.

In a reference to Donald Trump’s Twitter attack on Meryl Streep following her criticism of him at the Golden Globes, Kimmel joked that Streep was “uninspiring… mediocre… underwhelming and lacklustre”.

He asked the audience to give a round of applause for “the highly overrated Meryl Streep. Great dress, is that Ivanka?”

Kimmel also joked that Hollywood doesn’t discriminate – apart from “on age and weight”.

The first political speech of the night came from Alessandro Bertolazzi, one of the make-up and hairstyling winners for Suicide Squad, who said: “I’m an immigrant, I’m from Italy, this is for all the immigrants.”

Colleen Atwood won an impressive fourth Oscar for costume design for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, having won previously in 2011 for Alice in Wonderland, in 2006 for Memoirs of a Geisha and in 2003 for Chicago.

Kevin O’Connell finally picked up an Oscar after 21 nominations for Hacksaw Ridge. He was first nominated back in 1984 for Terms of Endearment.

The film also picked up best editing.

Iranian film director Asghar Farhadi’s The Salesman was named best foreign film.

Farhadi chose to stay away from Sunday’s ceremony following President Trump’s attempt to ban travel from Iran and six other mainly Muslim countries.

Zootopia won best animation, beating films such as Kubo and the Two Strings and Moana.

Other winners included British film The White Helmets, which picked up best documentary short.

The US denied entry to 21-year-old Syrian Khaled Khatib behind the film because of problems with his documents.

The a 40-minute Netflix documentary follows volunteers who risk their lives to rescue civilians in Syria.

MARRIAGE IS NOT MY FOCUS NOW – Juliet Ibrahim

Actress Juliet Ibrahim said she is not getting married anytime soon, just forget it. She is not thinking of marriage now. Right now, her focus is business and her child.

The “Shattered Romance” actress disclosed this in a recent interview.

“The biggest misconception about me would be that people think everything comes easy for me. They feel the outcome looks easier than the process and that is alright,” she added

I am grateful to them for buying into what I have been building for a while and giving me an opportunity to represent their brand image in a positive light. I am looking forward to great things to come out of this.”

“MARRIAGE WON’T CHANGE ANYTHING” – A Plus

Controversial musician, Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus has replied Komla Klutse, a Journalist with TV3 after he questioned why soldiers were serving as guards at the A-Plus’ traditional wedding.

The celebrity wedding between A Plus and stylist, Akosua Vee, held on Saturday was graced by showbiz personalities including Bola Ray, Nana Ama Mcbrown and Justice Oteng (Wei Ye Oteng).

A Facebook live video from the wedding grounds captured some soldiers and police personnel who seemed to be maintaining order while others were close to the groom.

Few hours after Komla Klutse raised a concern, A Plus has responded via another Facebook live video questioning if his friends in the military are barred from attending his wedding or whether their presence is against the laws of the country.

“Komla Klutse, you are a fool for making such comments. You are questioning the presence of soldiers at my wedding? When soldiers were guarding Ibrahim Mahama, was he the president of the country? Fool! Shallow-minded guy. So if I have a brother who is a soldier, a friend who is a soldier, he cannot attend my wedding? Have you ever seen a solider on duty dance before? You are not correct,” A Plus fumed.

The satirist further lashed out on a section of the public whose comments seem to suggest that he ought to behave and measure some of his utterances because he is a married man.

“I have heard people say I’m married so I should tone down. Marriage doesn’t change me. If you are messing up, I will tell you right in the face. The reason the lady married me is because she knows I say it as it is. Marriage won’t change anything,” he noted.
