WHETHER HE FROWNS OR SMILES, HE IS STILL MY HUSBAND- McBrown Reply Critics

Nana Ama Mcbrown has reacted to comments suggesting that the her husband Maxwell Mensah does look happy in the marriage.

This comes after social media users said she is forcing him to love her. Nana Ama Mcbrown in an interview said she does not force her husband to follow her to programmes because she can do everything on her own.

She insisted that Maxwell follows her to programmes because he wants to ensure her safety. Nana Mcbrown called on Ghanaians to leave them to live their lives.

“My husband is naturally the quit one and he is so sweet, when we are out of the crowd. I don’t tell him to go somewhere he doesn’t want to be. He knows my schedules because he is my manager and he knows that he has to support his wife. I don’t force anybody to do anything for me. I am his wife and he has to make sure I go and come back safely. But if you want to look at videos and judge him, it is your own case because we are so happy wherever we are. When you have it, you flaunt it. He is my husband and whether he frowns or smiles, he continue to be my husband”, Nana Ama stressed.

At an event to mark the 20th issue of Glitz Magazine in Accra, Maxwell addressed the critics personally after being prompted by his wife, stressing that he could not be talking and smiling in public for no reason.

“When I ‘m walking, I should just be talking for no reason?”, he asked in Twi.

Maxwell suggested that he could not be talking and smiling in public for no apparent reason because he was not mentally deranged. Born on 15th August 1973, 45-year-old Nana Ama Mcbrown is married to Maxwell Mensah, a 35-year-old businessman (Born On 3rd of August,1983).

They tied the knot two (2) years ago in a private but much-talked about wedding ceremony. Nana Ama McBrown who is 10 years older than her husband, has on many occasions said the age difference is not a problem to them. According to her, she is not the only one older than her husband, therefore, she does not pay attention to such criticisms.

He added that composing the song with Kuami was emotional as it brought tears to his eyes.

I PAID NANA ABA’S UK TUITION FEES – Baby Daddy Claims

The man at the center of the drama on the paternity of Nana Aba’s son, Paa Kow, Osebo Richard Brown has launched a self-defense stating that contrary to all public allegations of irresponsibility on his part, he paid the school fees of Nana Aba Anamoah when she enrolled in a UK school to further her studies.

In the audio recorded during his first radio interview on the matter, Osebo, as he is called, revealed to CJ, host of Accra FM’s morning show, that contrary to reports that he neglected his son all this while, he was rather barred from seeing the boy.

According to Osebo, Nana Aba Anamoah forbade him from seeing his son because he refused to give her money to pay her tuition fees in the UK years ago at a time the boy’s school fees was still unpaid.

According to him, Nana Aba felt her fees was more important than his son’s but he chose to pay his son’s first before hers. He said his decision to pay the boy’s fees and postpone that of Nana Aba to the next week infuriated her and she asked him not to contact her or the son again.

Since that time, he said, he has had to even give gifts to the son through others pretending they bought it before Nana Aba allows the son to accept it.

While Nana Aba herself has refused to publicly comment on the issue, her close friend who spoke to MyNewsGh.vom alleged that Osebo refused to accept the pregnancy when it happened. Osebo has debunked that version of events.

“MY ASS IS NOT FAKE” – Moesha Boduong Tell Critics

Ghanaian actress and model Moesha Boduong has rubbished claims by critics that her butt is artificial.

Replying to an Instagram post by Attractive Mustapha that she had been exposed by her old videos and pictures, she replied the journalist saying that, “You know me for a very long time, I was a girl on Viasat 1 that wanted to be Beyonce, so pathetic, my ass is not fake ”

According to her the videos and pictures that people are using as their justification do not make sense because she was so skinny and small than size 6, so people cannot base their argument on her old pictures as their justification.

Many Ghanaian personalities including veteran Ghanaian actress, Grace Omaboe popularly known as Maame Dokono in a recent interview has lambasted the actress by saying her butt is fake and that she is using it to snatch people’s husband’s who are old enough to be her father.

But Moesha in a private chat with Attractivemustapha.com said she is not interested in engaging herself in a banter with the veteran actress.

SOME CHRISTIANS GO TO CHURCH FOR GOING SAKE – John Dumelo

Celebrated actor, John Dumelo believes some Christians go to church just for the sake if it.

John is not enthused about the attitude of some so-called Christians whose main objective is to go to church to show off their new apparels, and not to worship God.

According to him, these bunch of people go to church for going sake and ultimately end up having no connection with God.

John Dumelo observed that a five-minute of prayer said at home can sometimes be worth more than dressing and going to church to ‘waste your time. ‘

The “Baby Thief” actor expressed his opinion on twitter:

“Religion is your personal relationship with God. Some go to church for going sake, yet they have no connection with God. A 5min prayer at home can sometimes be worth more than dressing and going to show off at 9:30 service”.
