DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING ON SOCIAL MEDIA – Moesha Bodoung

In recent times, celebrities and other social media influencers have been criticised for putting pressure on young people with the kind of lifestyles they portray, forcing them to engage in bad things but actress, Moesha Bodoung, says it is wrong for anyone to feel the need to match up to them.

“What we put out there is most of the time not the real situation, most of the news out there is not true. People, especially young girls, need to stand up for themselves and stop being deceived by the pictures or videos we put up on social media,” she told Showbiz last week.

“Look, if I travel to a place, you do not expect me to stand at a bad place and take pictures and the fact that I do that does not mean you need to kill yourself to do same. No, believe in yourself and you are good to go”.

Moesha added that, “If you allow the things that go on on social media to get to you, you will do all kinds of things and end up at places you may not like. If you want to believe everything then you will have hatred for us which will not help in any way.”

Moesha encouraged ladies to learn to be content with what they have.

“You do not find your worth in a man. Yes, you may get someone who has money and would want to lavish it on you but you need to put these monies to good use. Take it a step at a time and you will get there,” she said.

Moesha has starred in movies like Pool Party, Bloodline, Grey Dawn, Rape Case, Amakye and Dede, John and John and Everyday People. However, she is mostly known for her Instagram photos. The actress usually flaunts her voluptuous body on the social networking site.

 

 

CONFUSION HITS SHATTA MOVEMENT EMPIRE CAMP

There seem to be looming confusion in the camp of Shatta Movement(SM) Empire headed by dancehall artiste Shatta Wale.

According to reports, the confusion is between Shatta Wale and Blade who is a strong member of the Shatta Movement as well as Rapper Medikal.  Shatta Wale has explained his side of the story to www.sammyflex.comg in a telephone interview.

In a phone interview, Shatta Wale narrated that it all began when he was supposed to shoot a video of a remix he had done with AMG Medikal “omo ada”. 

According to Shatta one of his men called Blade took an amount of 7,000 Ghana cedis on his behalf from Medikal without his knowledge. Shatta continued that he called Medikal and confronted Blade on how the money got to him (Blade), and the process made Blade feel offended which started the confusion.

There has been some exchange of words, police arrest and social media attacks in the camp with videos from both sides of the divide blaming the other for wrong doing.

Listen to Shatta Wale chat with Sammy Flex below in parts 1 & 2 .

Meanwhile, Shatta Wale said he has sacked Pope Skinny, Bone and Blade out of his Shatta Movement camp backing his move by revealing that the three paddies are ‘Sellouts’.

“After this video I accepted you guys and now you came back with a mind to really fuck up my shatta movement .No wonder they never wanted people to come close to me ,I mean people who got love ..People forget soo soon… my people beware of people you forgive when people say do ..Listen to yourself and don’t trust and make nobody make your decision for you .. God forgives us so I tried to forgive but little did they know I also had a back up plan .. Beware of stone ,Bone , blade , good over evil and pope skinny .. They will never be part of my Journey anymore .. Anything they come out to say is Fabricated .. God guide me and my militants.” – Shatta Wrote.

Few hours after Shatta took such the bold decision, Pope Skinny counter replied him with a diss song dubbed ‘Ochokobila’, which is a local term for someone you are having a ‘beef’ or an issue with.

Pope’s move has triggered his one time best friend ‘Shatta Wale’ to reveal his dirty secrets. According to Shatta in a series of posts on his social media handles, Pope Skinny is a rapist. See what The Asuoden God posted on Snapchat…. earlier today.

Few minutes late Popskinny was quoted in a video saying Shatta Wale is using juju.

“Every year you dey fight with somebody .. your time has come… God bless you … We know.. That why we all..we dey follow you… But you see… the juju wey you add am… God go exposed you because the God wey you dey mention em no be God”… Said Popskinny.

YOU CAN’T KEEP A MAN WITH SEX OR BABY – Nadia Buari Advises Women

Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari has advised women to desist from the notion that having sex or having a baby for a man can help them keep a man.

In an Instagram post, the award-winning actress said there is very little any woman can do to keep a man who isn’t willing to stay.

According to her, “only a man who wants to be kept” can be held down, adding that not even having a child for a man can guarantee a lady keeping him.

“So I just got off the phone with a childhood friend of mine who’s having relationship issues and feels her last resort is to get off the pills and have a baby for him.

“In her naive mind, that will certainly hold him down. Well…I ain’t no counselor, neither I’m I clairvoyant, but I do know this however, that, a baby WON’T keep a man, being beautiful WON’T keep a man, sex WON’T keep a man, Heck, being a good woman, BARELY keeps a man. The only thing that’ll keep a man, is A MAN THAT WANTS TO BE KEPT!” she wrote.

Nadia Buari is a mother of four children, but has often kept her family life away from the media.

MY ENEMIES HAVE FAILED – Moesha Denies HIV Rumours

The last few weeks must not have been easy for actress Moesha Bodoung. She has always courted controversy but the latest one she has been involved in is quite serious.

Recently, social media has been set on fire by an unnamed person who has been making some damaging allegations about some female celebrities sleeping with men for money and how a number of them have contracted HIV from one such man.

Moesha was mentioned as one of those who have had an affair with the man and could have the virus but in an interview with Showbiz, she denied those claims and said her detractors had failed if they wanted to bring her down.

“I want to put on record that I do not have HIV/AIDS and the said man is not someone I have ever had anything to do with sexually. I know him but it is on a purely professional level. This is a man who has helped a lot of industry players.” 

“The man I know is very principled and business oriented so it is quiet unfair for anyone to tarnish his image using a deadly disease such as this, but what can you say? At the end of the day, it is the truth that matters. I don’t have any disease and I have never slept with the man in question.”

“Has the person behind this thought of how he or she would feel if the tables were turned? That I have a family, that I have a brand? What was the person’s aim? Well, if the aim was to make me look bad I’m sorry the person has failed. I am stronger than what people think,” she said.

Moesha said she was not bothered about the issue although it was serious. “I am not bothered at all. Far from it. If I have learnt anything in this world, it is not allowing negative things to get to me. 

“These things come with the job so it is fine. The only issue I have is the HIV/AIDS part. Like I said, I do not have anything like that and I don’t sleep around for money,” she stressed.

Moesha urged people not to believe everything they see on social media. “I think it is time people stopped encouraging some of these things. People should by now be able to draw the line between real things and fake ones. I know Ghanaians are intelligent so we should not allow people to take us for granted with these things.”

Moesha also asked that people invest the same energy they use in tarnishing her image to support her projects.
“Last year, my team and I outlined some things that we wanted to do but for one or two reasons we couldn’t go on as planned.”

“This year we will and I am looking at empowering young ladies through skills training, so they should use the same energy to support me and I will appreciate it,” she stated.

I ONCE HAD SEX IN A PLANE – Actress Ella Mensah 

Nigerian-based Ghanaian actress, Ella Mensah has disclosed that she’s had sex in a plane.

In a recent interview, the actress said: “I once had sex in a plane. It was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever done. But at the same time, it was so much fun”.

Mensah also recounted an encounter she had with armed robbers in Lagos and the promising relationships she lost to save her career.

“In 2018, I almost lost my life. Armed robbers attacked me on my way home from a movie location in Lagos. It was scary! But I’m grateful to God for saving my life and for blessing me afterwards.

Another unforgettable experience was when I lost two relationships because of acting. Both men had problems with me playing some roles and eventually asked me to quit acting, which I refused. One even asked me to choose between him and my career. Obviously, I chose my career. Most African men are extremely jealous and can’t stand another man kissing their woman, even in a movie. It’s sad though; I guess it’s what it is” she said

Although she is making it big in Nigeria, Ella, who has starred in movies like Bed of Roses, I’m about to Wed, Playboy, Pretty Queen, Shakira and Deadline, believes Ghana has so many good actors and wishes the government would invest more in the entertainment sector.

Fella further stressed that she never expected to have it easy when they started their love journey and as such, she is very okay with some of the troubles that comes their way.

She however added that dating the Rapper is good for her business.

“On my side it is good for me. It is good for my business. For me, I am all about business because that is where I get my salary from, I don’t do office work. All my businesses are on social media,” Fella stated.

She also revealed that she owns four businesses, namely; an eye lashes line (Beauty by Fella Makafui), a wine shop(Fella Wine & Liquor), a delivery company(FM Delivery) and a clothing line (FM Fella Makafui).

Fella also disclosed that she currently has fifteen people on her employee list and a total of thirty people on the list of the individuals she has to pay every month.

Asked if these problems are ones they have in their love life, the actress revealed on the ‘Uncut’ show hosted by Zionfelix that it was never the case because they consider themselves as a family now. She added that the problems they have had so far, have been with the media, some fans and a section of the society.

WORLD BANK SUPPORTS GHANA’S TOURISM & CREATIVE ARTS SECTOR WITH $40 MILLION

The World Bank has approved a US$40 million grant to support the country’s tourism and creative arts sector.

Delivering the State of the Nation Address to Parliament last Thursday, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said the grant was to help improve Ghana’s tourism to make it attractive to patrons across the globe.

The grant is to be used, among other things, to upgrade tourist facilities in the country. Already, the President said, tourist sites, including the Elmina Heritage Bay, Axim Fort St Antonio, Assin Manso Slave River, Tetteh Quarshie Cocoa Farm, Bunso Arboretum, and the Kintampo Water Falls, were being upgraded to meet world class standards.

A draft policy to ensure that world-class standards were set and maintained at all tourist sites and attractions was in the pipeline, he added. He expressed concern about how Ghana was always in the news for the good reasons yet had not taken advantage of that to attract visitors.

The President recalled that the tourism ministry had rolled out a campaign called “See Ghana, Eat Ghana, Wear Ghana and Feel Ghana” to promote made-in-Ghana products. Under the programme, he said the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) had recorded a 20 per cent growth in visits to various tourist sites.

Creative Arts sector

Touching on the Creative Arts sector, the President said a bill to regulate the sector had been passed, leading to the setting up of the Creative Arts Fund, while the Hospitality Training Institute had been renovated, and re-opened in July 2018 to provide needed training in the hospitality and tourism sectors.

He said the Eastern Regional Arts Theatre had been completed and work on the construction of the Kumasi Arts Theatre was ongoing.

He touched on the proclamation of the 2019 “Year of Return” commemorating the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first 20 West African slaves in the Commonwealth of Virginia, in what was to become the United States of America, saying “in response to this proclamation, 70 African-American Hollywood celebrities visited Ghana in December 2018.”

President Akufo–Addo pointed out that while the country had many tourists sites, the greatest attraction was its people.

“Yes, we have castles and forts, we have waterfalls and dramatic mountain ranges, we have breath-taking beaches and historical sites that reduce visitors to strong emotions, but it is the people of Ghana and our welcoming attitude that are the strongest attraction to visitors,” he stated.

Sanitation

He was, however, quick to add that bad sanitation habits would continue to put tourists off from visiting the country.

He reiterated his pledge to improve sanitation in the country and make Accra the cleanest city in Africa by the end of his term.

As a result, he said the ministries of Justice and Sanitation were working together to try sanitation offences.

He also touched on open defecation and emphasised that the practice could not be a characteristic of a country that was working to be transformed economically.

EVANGELIST PAPA SHEE EXPOSES DELAY 

Highlife Musician turned Pastor, Evangelist Papa Shee has revealed that television presenter, Deloris Frimpong Manso interviewed him on The Delay Show several months ago but she has refused to air it for reasons best known to her.

Speaking on “Entertainment Ghana” on Neat 100.9 FM, Papa Shee disclosed that Delay interviewed him about four months ago and she promised to air it specifically on December 24, 2018 but she has refused to show his interview till date because the interview didn’t go in her favour.

According to him if he said something negative that would make her show trend, she would have quickly posted it on social media for views but because he preached the word of God in the interview, Delay has deliberately refused to air the interview for her personal interest.

He has therefore, challenged Delay to air the interview as she promised.

SOCIAL MEDIA IS ALL ABOUT THE FAKE LIFE – Yvonne Nelson

Actress and Movie Producer, Yvonne Nelson has said, the life many people live on social media is fake.

Speaking to Adom News’ Sandra Akapko the actress stated, 90 percent of people are either trying to impress their followers or get followers.

“It’s not only in Ghana but everywhere,” she added.

She said, “you can see someone on social media in a private jet but the person may be a musician shooting a music video or the plane may not be moving, but people see it and think about all the luxuries they don’t have.”

Yvonne Nelson said many people who dwell on the luxuries of such people are only worrying themselves unnecessarily.

“It’s all a lie, social media is all about the fake life,” she stated.

The actress said she does not go beyond herself to impress anyone and all her social media posts prove that. The movie producer is not the only celebrity to speak against the life people live on social media. Actress, Martha Ankoma in an interview on Hitz FM said social media has caused more harm than good to society.

According to her, the lives of some social media users can make a person feel they have not achieved anything in life and question their very existence.

Martha Ankoma said, “sometimes you think there is nothing happening in your life when you wake up in the morning. If you are not careful, you will think of doing something just to get the attention.”

She has always maintained that so many celebrities exhibit fake lifestyles on social media and fans should not be swayed by what they see.

Yvonne Nelson also said, “people shouldn’t follow all the glitz and glam on social media.”
