WANLOV CHANGES SON’S SCHOOL BECAUSE HE WAS SINGING CHRISTIAN SONGS

Ghana’s afro-gipsy artiste, Wanlov the Kubolor has said he changed the school of his son because the school he was attending taught him how to sing a gospel song.

According to him, schools are meant for teaching colours and numbers and not religion so he could not understand why the school will teach his son some useless song.

The artiste who was speaking in an interview with Accra-based TV Africa said “When my first born, Abonsamposoro came to Ghana for the first time I took him to a school in Accra, before he was admitted I asked the school’s authority if they would be teaching him anything on religion whether Christianity, Muslim or tradition, I asked because I don’t want him to be preached to on Christianity, it is not needed in school, so just teach him numbers, colours and rainbows”.

Wanlov said “a couple of days after his admission he begun to sing a gospel song from school, I immediately took him from that school, I am a bit hesitant in paying my kids school fees because they sing useless songs”.

He indicated that religion is a personal decision and should not be taught in school because it is each and every individual’s right to choose what to believe in and it should not be forced on anybody.

“Religion is something that is personal and not needed in schools that is how I see it, I don’t believe schools should teach about religion they should just teach what they are supposed to.”

I WAS KIDNAPPED & I FELL IN LOVE WITH MY KIDNAPPER – Christabel Ekeh

Ghanaian actress Christabel Ekeh has been off the screens for a while. Apparently, love swept her off her feet when she least expected it.

The actress revealed that she has fallen in love with a guy who ‘kidnapped’ her and has “been swept off” her entire feet.

Speaking to Joy Prime at the premieriing of ‘Damaged Goods’ by Roverman Productions, the actress, who seemed to be clearly smitten, admitted that she did not believe very much in the concept of love until she fell in love with her ‘kidnapper’ whom she said is a descent of two French countries.

“I never believed in this love thing until it struck me like thunderbolt. We met in a very dramatic way; I thought I was being kidnapped; I probably was being kidnapped,” she said.

Christabel Ekeh, who is of Ghanaian and Nigerian descent, narrated the occurrence.

“I was bored and I went somewhere and this guy just whisked me away. In the beginning I was scared, and then I was curious and I found myself in his home and I was curious again; I thought I should blow the alarm, by then I was dating somebody but I noticed I wasn’t even in love because the person came, he knew something was wrong, he brought in the police, I managed to get out of his hold (the kidnapper), but I went back. That’s why I said I fell in love with my kidnapper.”

The actress, who was reluctant to give any more information about her love, did mention that he was ‘famous and rich’.

That probably leaves her fans with three clues; French decent, rich and famous. It is however unclear, whether or not the actress is referring to a figurative kidnapping or an actual one.

Christabel Ekeh, who is 26, is known for movies like ‘Corporate Game’, ‘Sweet Mistake’, and the popular, ‘Potomanto’ released in 2013.

Stacy Amoateng has resigned from TV Africa barely a year after taking a new position at the station known for projecting African values.

Stacy readily confirmed her exit from TV Africa, when Peacefmonline.com contacted her, but she however denied that her exit was due to any managerial misunderstanding, insisting that she left her former working place on a good note.

“Yes! It is true I have resigned from TV Africa but nothing happened. I am just making more time for Restoration with Stacy. The brand is growing and new wings are springing up. So I just need more commitment with it. No hard feelings and no drama. We still have a beautiful relationship”. 

Until her resignation, Mrs. Stacy Amoateng was the Content Manager of TV Africa, a position she held for just 7 months before she left.

Stacy Amoateng is a TV show host and wife of Musician/Broadcaster Quophi Okyeame of defunct Akyeame duo fame. They have been married for 12 years and blessed with 3. She co-hosted Music Music on TV3 with Bola Ray and resigned in 2012.

ADJETEY ANANG OPENS UP ON 7 YEARS OF MARRIAGE WITHOUT A CHILD

Adjetey Annang and wife, Elorm with their new baby years ago

Ghanaian actor, Adjetey Anang popularly known as “Pusher”, has revealed that seven years of marriage without a child was an unpleasant experience for him and his wife.

Pusher and his wife Elorm Anang not having a child for that long after their wedding, prompted some calls from friends and relatives for the actor to find an alternative.

The astute actor who made his maiden appearance on Kafui Danku’s Vlog Channel, advised men who are in similar situation to use the period of childless to make their relationship stronger and prepare adequately for the child yet unborn.

“It’s really tough and very sensitive especially if you are a guy because our culture places a lot of pressure on fatherhood and for the fact that you have a child or not, it was really tough for us.

For my experience I just want to encourage men out there if you going through this to just see that years as a moment to bond together and perhaps there are things that you need to prepare for and once you get that and the baby comes in, it just flows. Many at times people are torn apart because the baby isn’t coming, and when the baby comes they aren’t prepared,” Pusher told Kafui Danku.

According to the actor, it is bad for male friends to tease their colleagues because they are unable to have a child, adding that not all men will be able to have a child but that will not take out their fatherhood responsibilities.

“The best we men can do is to encourage other people and not to make mockery of them… Being childless is really sensitive and let’s remember that we bring our uniqueness and blessings in diverse ways so let’s support the brother who has no child with a prayer and words of encouragement,” Pusher added.

He further expressed the joy of final­ly being a father, stating that the feeling was beyond description when he first held his baby.

VICKY ZUGAH APOLOGIZES OVER ANAL SEX COMMENT

Movie star Vicky Zugah has finally accepted her mistake and apologised for publicly admitting that she loves and enjoys anal sex.

After being bastardized by Ghanaians for indicating her preference for anal sex saying it turns her on, Actress Vicky Zugah has retracted and apologized for what many described as unethical comments in the African context.

It would be recalled a video that was circulating on various social media platforms captured the actress saying she loves anal sex and that people who want to engage in anal sex should just ask their lovers and if they are interested they can engage in the act.

She said “It is great. I mean anal sex is great so find out if your partner likes it or not and then you will enjoy the act. However, not everybody likes anal sex so you need to ask the person before you engage in the act with him or her.”

Subsequently, she claimed to have been misrepresented by the report in the media but when the video was played for her, she asked Ghanaians on her Instagram page to forgive her.

“I didn’t mean it the way it came out. Something definitely went wrong. Coming across things like this almost daily breaks my heart into a million pieces. How do I quit talking about this when it keeps happening? Lend me your ears please. Stop trying to shut me up. I mean no evil. I just want to save as many lives as I can while am still here. Don’t use my mistakes against me. Don’t allow mistakes of yesterday overshadow today’s good intentions. I will beg you all if need be. Give me the chance to do this please. I am sorry,I didn’t mean it the way it came out. Something definitely went wrong. Forgive me.” Vicky stated.
