WHY FLY BUSINESS CLASS WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE A SINGLE PIECE OF LAND? – Tracey Boakye Asks

Ghanaian actress and movie producer, Tracey Boakye said she just cannot understand why someone who doesn’t own a piece of land, decide to fly business class.

Though Tracey Boakye is a hardworking actress and film producer, a section of Ghanaians still question the source of her enormous wealth. Tracey, who is unperturbed by petty criticisms from people, keeps expanding her business empire and has even hinted, on social media, of building another mansion for herself after she completes the final premiere of ‘Baby Mama’ in Sunyani.

According to the post, Tracey Boakye shared on social media, there is no sense in flying business class when one does not even own a piece of land. She further stated that people should not talk ‘bullshit’ about her when they see her building another mansion for herself and that she is saving all her ‘business class’ money to build her future.

Her post reads;

“People are traveling business class, whiles they don’t even have a piece of land, if you see me building another house, don’t say shit!! Im saving business class money to build my future. Yoo”.

Tracey is currently trending on all social media platforms due to the successful premieres of her 14th movie, ‘Baby Mama’, under her own production house – Shakira Movie Production, in Kumasi and Accra.

The movie, ‘Baby Mama’, which is yet to be premiered in Sunyani at the Eusbett Cinema is receiving positives reviews from both entertainment critics and movie lovers in Ghana.

Actress Yvonne Nelson, one of the few entertainers who speaks on national issues is bemoaning the fact that the country is going through turbulent times and that even unborn children are now owing under Akufo-Addo’s government.

Some years ago, she organised a vigil to prompt the government of the National Democratic Congress (NDC ) on why they need to work on “DUMSOR” because it was affecting Ghanaian businesses.

She has severally complained about the governance under the NPP and the fact that they seem to be failing Ghanaians.

In a tweet, Yvonne noted that Ghanaian leaders do not have the country and its citizens at heart and that they seem to be borrowing and wasting money.

The actress noted that even unborn Ghanaian Ghanaian children are owing because leaders in Ghana do not have the citizens at heart.

Her tweet read “GHANA!!! Our unborn kids are even owing……….thats where our leaders have got us!! Sit and think about this!”.

 

IT’S NOT BAD TO DATE A SUGAR DADDY – Fella Makafui

Actress Fella Makafui who now wants to be known as Kpando Beyonce has revealed her stand on ladies dating older men popularly referred to as sugar daddies.

Fella before making her relationship with rapper Medikal public was rumoured to be in a relationship with a sugar daddy who bought her a car and even opened up a wine shop for her in East Legon.

Speaking in an interview, Fella Makafui addressing the issue of she dating a sugar daddy revealed that in the first place the person she dated wasn’t a sugar daddy per the definition of the host.

According to Fella Makafui, it’s not even a sin in the first place to date a sugar daddy because there are two types of sugar daddies saying we have the one’s that are married and have kids as well as we have the single ones.

She went on to say that in that sense her ex-boyfriend was not married even though he was older than her and as such she didn’t see it to be a sin being a relationship with him

Explaining further, she made it clear that she knows she has not been in the industry for long to be able to achieve all that she has currently that is why people believed she was dating a sugar daddy.

But what people failed to understand is that before she became the known Fella, she used to work by selling dresses on social media before finally making an appearance in “YOLO”.

She also shot down the public assertion that Medikal is just using her and would soon dump her when he is finally down with her like how he did to Sister Deborah.

MENZGOLD CEO, NANA APPIAH MENSAH GRANTED GH¢1 BILLION BAIL

Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah has been granted a GH¢1 billion bail by an Accra Circuit court presided over by Jane Helen Akweley Quaye.

This was when he appeared in court Friday morning for the commencement of his trial. To secure the bail, NAM1 is expected to present 5 surities, three of whom must be justified.

The CEO of embattled gold trading Menzgold has been charged with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretence and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without a licence, contrary to Section 6 (1) of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930).

Two of his companies — Brew Marketing Consult and Menzgold Ghana Limited — represented by him, have each been charged with defrauding by false pretence, contrary to sections 20 (1) and 13 (1) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).

His sister and wife have also been slapped with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretence and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without licence contrary to section 6(1) of Act 930.

The two women who are said to have aided Menzgold to carry out the fraudulent acts are still at large as their whereabouts still remain a mystery to the police.

Customers of Menzgold who have had their monies locked up as a result of the closedown of the company besieged the court this morning, calling for NAM1’s release.

Upon NAM1’s appearance at the court, the customers, holding various placards, began to scream “free NAM1, he is our hero”.

Some of the inscriptions on the placards are:

“Form committee for transparency now”, “suspend criminal charges now”, “23 people dead in Menzgold saga”, “no money for fees and medical bills” among others.

I ONCE REFUSED TO KISS AN ACTRESS ON SET BECAUSE OF HER BAD BREATH – Actor Prince David Osei Reveals

Ghanaian Actor and Producer, Prince David Osei has shared an unpleasant story of how he intensionally refused to kiss an actress on set because of her extreme bad breath.

According to him, he refused to kiss an actress while on set because she had a very bad mouth odor. The actor revealed that the lady’s mouth smelled like a manhole. Prince David Osei added that he prompted the director and told him that he had a bleeding gum and cannot kiss the lady.

“We are all doing creative work so you can’t have a bad mouth and body odor and come closer to me. It’s my health so I won’t do it, I will prompt the director and tell him I have a bleeding gum. I did it to some girl on set. Her mouth was smelling so bad like manhole and told the director that I won’t kiss her. It was smelling so bad. I got close to her during the rehearsal and her breathe alone was so bad so I decided not to kiss her”, Prince David Osei revealed.

The ‘ladies man’ also indicated that he is very particular about such romantic scenes due to this unfortunate incident. He also noted that he has never been aroused on set.

OBOUR INVESTED MUSIGA’S GH¢70,000 IN MENZGOLD – Bessa Simons Reveals

The 1st Vice President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bessa Simons has disclosed that the union is part of the many customers whose investments are locked at gold dealership company Menzgold.

He said in an interview on Bozzlz TV that MUSIGA invested GHc70, 000 at Menzgold under outgoing President of the union, Bice Osei Kufour aka Obour’s presidency before the company was ordered by authorities to shut down.

Bessa said as a group that believes in making financial gains from their money, they thought it was prudent to have made that investment to help the union.

“MUSIGA’s decision to invest in Menzgold was taken by the National Executive Committee and then this disaster happened. This has happened to so many organisations. They did it with good intention to earn more money for MUSIGA. So if there is a problem I think we all have to wait and pray and make sure that it is corrected. A lot of organisations and individuals have lost money through this,” he said.

In September 2019, the Securities and Exchange Commission ordered gold trading firm, Menzgold Ghana Limited, to suspend operations with immediate effect.

In a letter dated September 7, SEC said it has thoroughly investigated the activities of Menzgold and has found out that the Nana Appiah Mensah-owned firm does not have the license to trade in gold collectables from the public.

Since the incident, a lot of people including celebrities have come out to say their investments are locked up at the company.

Some of them are musician Mzbel, Shatta Wale, Kumi Guitar, among others. In the meantime, Nana Appiah Mensah, the CEO of Menzgold is on remand to answer to charges of defrauding customers under false pretence.

Nana Appiah Mensah has been accused of defrauding his customers of about GHc1.68 billion. According to the charge sheet, the money was from 16,001 people who invested a total of GHc1,680,920,000 in the company.

Meanwhile, some aggrieved customers of Menzgold are requesting the release of NAM1 so they can retrieve their investment.

SARKODIE IS A HYPOCRITE AND TOO FULL OF HIMSELF – Shatta Wale Vents

Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has called out his friend Rapper Sarkodie very hush words during a live radio interview this morning on Zylofon FM in Accra.

The “Gringo” hitmaker has discribed Sarkodie as a hypocrite after he(Sarkodie) sent him a congratulatory message to him via Twitter for collaborating with American Singer/Actress Beyoncé on her much anticipated  latest “Zions King: The Gift” album.

Shatta Wale early Wednesday morning on Zylofon 102.1FM described Obidi as a hypocrite. Explaining why he did not retweet Sarkodie’s congratulatory message to him, the SM4LYF boss told Sammy Flex, host of the morning entertainment show that the tweet from Sark was not from his heart.

According to him, Sarkodie has been acting as a boss towards him and that is an attitude he hates.

“Sarkodie has become too known. He was recently on Hitz FM and he was trying to pose big to me. I don’t pose big to people. Music is not about your dress and it’s not about how you speak”, Shatta said.  

He continued and explained why he did wish Sarkodie happy birth  “I don’t want hypocrites around me. Sarkodie has always been a hypocrite. I didn’t wish him on his birthday. He think he can tweet about my collabo and make people say he’s a matured person. I won’t retweet his tweet. He can say that message but I know deep down within him it wasn’t a real tweet.”.

Shatta Wale and Sarkodie have being very good friends in the past and done number monster hit collaborations and performed together on countless stages both in and outside Ghana but they have been on loggerheads for sometime now with each of them claiming supremacy over the other.

As at the time of filing this report, Rapper Sarkodie hadn’t reacted to Shatta Wale strong words against him yet.
