57-YEAR-OLD GHANAIAN ACTRESS KYEIWAA MARRIES AMERICA

Actress Rose Mensah, known popularly as Kyeiwaa, and her husband, Michael Kissi Asare, sealed their union with a white a wedding ceremony in Worcester, Massachusetts on Saturday, July 25, 2020.

The ceremony was attended by a number of her relatives and friends. The Kumawood actress trended in January 2020 after reports of her remarrying under the laws of United States of America went viral.

The 57-year-old actress and Michael Kissi Asare went to court to get married at the time. It, therefore, took them six months to organise a white wedding to seal their marriage due to constraints by the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is, however, the second time she has said ‘I do’ after her first failed marriage in 2015.

She was married to Kumasi-based spare parts dealer, Daniel Osei, but their union lasted not more than five days. She returned her ring and drinks after she discovered that Osei was already married to another woman.

She was accompanied by her father and a number of Kumawood actors and actresses to annul the marriage. In an interview after the annulment, Kyeiwaa said she was aware Osei had a child with another woman but she didn’t know he was married to her and since she didn’t want to be a second wife, the right thing to do was to annul the marriage.

After the divorce brouhaha, she has been in and out of Ghana, predominantly domiciled in America.

NO ACTOR OR ACTRESS CAN SURVIVE WITH ONLY ACTING IN GHANA – Kwaku Sintim-Misa

Legendary Ghanaian entertainer and host of the KSM Show, Kwaku Sintim-Misa says no actor makes a fortune from acting in Ghana.

According to KSM, any actor or actress who claims to have made money from acting in the country is deceiving Ghanaians.

He argued that acting in Ghana doesn’t generate lots of money, hence disclosing the actors have a side job that they rely on to better their lives.

To him, to survive solely from acting is an impossible mission.

‘When I see people in Ghana who say I am a professional actor or actress, that’s all I do; I say in your dreams man. And survive in Ghana? That all you’re doing is to act, no; It’s not possible! No way and that’s the only income is from acting in Ghana, no way”

It could be recalled that veteran actor, Kofi Adjorlolo months ago accused some movie producers of owing him because they had failed to pay him for his acting roles in their movies.

Kofi Adjorlolo shed tears on Peace FM’s entertainment programme dubbed ”Entertainment Review” and threatened to take action against them if they refuse to give him his money.

Following Adjorlolo’s revelations, actor cum fashion designer Elikem Kumordzie argued that his colleagues are near broke because they don’t have a side job but depend solely on the income they make from their acting careers.

He believed the actors will not have many complaints about their financial progress if they would crave multiple streams of income by taking up additional occupations.

KSM, speaking in an interview with Nkonkonsa.com, sided with Elikem Kumordzie stressing the actors making a good living have a separate work to complement their acting career.

”I am saying they do other things to make their money and they use that money to support their acting career [you know]. But I don’t know of anyone who has, only on acting, to say I will be counted among the rich people in Ghana because all I do is act; no”, he said .

The veteran comedian added that the Ghanaian actors and actresses who have enriched themselves primarily derived their riches from penetrating the Nigerian market.

‘Most of the Ghanaian actors who made quite a good amount of money from acting, you’ll realize they were in Nigeria. They did lots of work with Nigeria or they had the Nigerian connection and that’s where most of them made good money and there, money can be made.”

‘But in Ghana, to say you’re purely living, born, bred and you’re acting in Ghana and that you have cash; oh please! Who’s paying you?” he questioned.

SARKODIE TO STAND FOR PRESIDENT IN 2024?

Many African celebrities, probably spurred on by American rapper Kanye West’s initiative, have announced their intention to ascend the throne of the highest office in their respective countries.

It will be recalled that our very own Princess Shyngle also announced her intention to be Gambia’s president at some point.

In light of this, Sarkodie took to twitter to announce his presidential ambition, and the response was mixed as usual with some encouraging him while others also completely broke his resolve.

NANA ABA ANAMOAH HATES ME BECAUSE OF KOFI AMOABENG – Mzbel Reveals

Mzbel has alleged that broadcast journalist Nana Aba Anamoah “hates” her—and the reason is that she (Mzbel) snatched former UT Bank boss, Kofi Amoabeng, from her.

Speaking on Kantanka TV on Tuesday, she, however, denied the snatching claims, indicating that Nana Aba and Amoabeng’s relationship ended long before she dated him.

She added that she didn’t know “they dated” when she started dating him.

“They dated long before I even came into the picture. I was never friends with Nana Aba. She was never my friend until me and Kofi started going out and then one time she invited me on her show. After the show when I was going home, she sent me a BBM to say we have a common friend and I asked who and she said Kofi. And I said oh OK. I didn’t even know they dated until later. And up till date, she hates me because of that,” she alleged.

“But if you done with somebody or somebody is done with somebody before I came into the picture why do you have to hate me?” she asked.

It has always been a public secret that the two showbiz personalities ‘have had a thing’ with the former UT boss. However, none of them has really opened up about it.

Mzbel was, however, talking about Nana Aba and Kofi Amoabeng for the first time on a show hosted by one Mona Gucci, who had earlier made derogatory remarks about Nana Aba on Neat FM. The station at the time apologised to Nana Aba, who threatened to sue Neat FM.

 

“LAZY WOMEN ARE IMPRESSED BY MEN WITH MONEY” – Actress Xandy Kamel

Kumawood actress and TV show host, Xandy Kamel Mensah has dismissed the popular notion that, money plays a very important role in women’s choice of a man for a relationship.

According to the actress, ladies who are attracted to men with money are only lazy.

She dismissed the generalisation that women love money. To her, a hard working woman does not need a man to live comfortably.

To her, a man is only a bonus in the lives of hard working women. Many people hold the conviction that women love money more than anything in relationships. But Xandy is trying to dispell such with her latest post on social media.

She took to her Instagram page and wrote: “Lazy Women are impressed by men with money. But when a woman works hard, a man with money is just bonus to her and not a ladder for success”.

 

CORONAVIRUS HAS EXPOSED ALL THE LYING PASTORS – KSM

Ghanaian entertainer and broadcaster, Kwaku Sintim-Misa has scolded Christian leaders for failing to heal Coronavirus patients in the country.

In an interview with Nkonkonsa.com on YouTube, KSM urged Christians to wise up because the Coronavirus pandemic has exposed the Pastors as having no healing or supernatural powers.

”Every week, they have miracle crusades and they’re going to heal this person or do this or that. Corona is here with us; as we talk people have been quarantined, go to where they have been quarantined and heal them”, he ridiculed the Pastors.

According to him, if they (Pastors) indeed can work miracles, they should seek clearance from President Nana Akufo-Addo to go to the various hospitals and prove their healing powers.

”If there is anything we have to learn from this coronavirus, it’s how much Pastors have been lying, especially those who claim to have all these healing powers. Where are they?…Where is the power of the God that you talk about and claim to have this miraculous healing powers? Where is it? Where are they?” .
