BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER PREDICTS THAT JOHN DUMELO WOULD BE PRESIDENT OF GHANA

Actor turned Politician, John Dumelo celebrated his 35th birthday on Sunday February 3, 2019 and he had a gift of prophecy from his friend, Jon Benjamin.

Former British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin has wished the actor happy birthday with a prophetic message indicating that he could be the President of Ghana within the next decade.

“A very happy birthday to my friend @johndumelo1.I hope this message is enough to score me an invitation to his inauguration as President in a decade or so”.

I AM DONE WITH NIGERIAN MEN – Yvonne Nelson

Celebrated actress Yvonne Nelson says she does not intend to date any Nigerian man due to her past experience.

According to her, she is now ready for a serious date but will not consider Nigerian men among her suitors.

The award-winning actress was speaking on ‘Cooks and Braggarts’, a cooking show hosted by Yvonne Okoro. She said she once posted on her Instagram page seeking a date but was shocked that no one reached out.

“You mean my post? No! No! No one reached out to me…maybe they don’t believe me. It is what it is. I am looking for one. Infact get me one in Ghana,” Yvonne Nelson said.

“As for Nigerian men I am done,” the actress jokingly added. It will be recalled that Yvonne Nelson was previously in a serious relationship with Nigerian artiste Iyanya.

However, the relationship between the pair did not last, as it ended on the rocks some months later.

“We broke up because we hardly had time for each other. I was hustling and I would do four shows in a day and I will make 2 million. So, I won’t say because I was in love with a woman I’m going to see money and I’m going to lay back,” Iyanya later explained in an interview.

Perhaps, it is Yvonne Nelson’s experience with Iyanya is what has led to her decision not to ever date Nigerian men.

Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo has added his voice to the long list of public figures advocating for the legalization of marijuana in Ghana.

According to the award-winning actor, marijuana has a lot of medical advantages which could benefit the country if legalised.

“When you go to some of the western countries, it [Marijuana] has been legalised for health purposes and we can also do same. If alcohol and cigarettes are legal in Ghana, why not marijuana”, the actor disclosed.

The actor stated that the abuse of the drug could be controlled if the authorities research to put up structures and measures to prevent the drug from being abused.

He also disclosed that Canada legalised marijuana in October 2018 and put up measures to prevent people from abusing the drug. The actor who is also an entrepreneur stated that the legalisation of marijuana will not increase crime rates and mental illness in the country but can be used for medicinal purposes.

ELIKEM ASSURES HIS SUGAR MUMMY WITH A PROMISE RING…AS DIVORCE WITH POKELLO STILL PENDS

Ghanaian Actor and Fashion Designer, Elikem Kumordzi has been caught in a typical case of love triangle.

The Big Brother Africa star is in the news again after sharing videos and pictures of his new woman.

Peacefmonline.com gathers that Elikem is head over heels in love with a woman who is about twice his age and has even gone ahead to give her a promise ring; an assurance of his undying love for her.

Interestingly, after images of Elikem and his new lover hit the internet, several people have described the actor as a gold-digger because they believe he is in it just for the lady’s wealth. But it appears Elikem is unperturbed by the negative comments.

The two are all over each other on social media flaunting their love affair as they spend time together in Dubai and even in Ghana; even while his divorce with Zimbabwean Reality star and Business woman Pokello plays out.

Reliable sources told Peacefmonline.com that though Pokello is quietly looking on as Elikem rubs his new lover in her face, she is just patiently awaiting the day Elikem will officially wed his lover, so she can sue for bigamy. This is because, as far as the law is concerned, Elikem and Pokello are still legally married, a close source pointed out.

The fashion designer appears to have a soft spot for Zimbabwean ladies as it is gathered his new lover also hails from the southern African country.

According to a post by realhotgossip page on Instagram,Elikem’s new lover was allegedly once married with 5 kids, but walked out of her marriage in order to be with the Ghanaian Actor.

According to the tattling page, Elikem’s entire family including his mother and brothers are all against his new relationship, but it seems all their objections have been rebuffed.

Elikem met Pokello during the Big Brother TV reality show in 2013 and they dated for a while until they eventually got married in 2015. The marriage produced a son.

The couple are however, currently battling for divorce in a Zimbabwean court.

Elikem is reported to have once described his failed marriage to Pokello as a mistake.

According to him, he lost affection and love before he declared their relationship “irreparable”.

Pokello and Kumordzie were married under the Marriage Act in Harare on September 28, 2015.
