Moesha Boduong has fired at Ghanaians for criticising her recent interview with American media giant, Cable News Network (CNN).
The actress, in an interview with Christiane Amanpour on “Sex & Love Around the World” show, claimed that she funds her ‘ostentatious’ lifestyle through such activities since the acting jobs are not really paying.
She further blamed some of her lifestyle choices on the Ghanaian economy. She claimed the economy isn’t doing well to support hard work, therefore, the need to do other ‘businesses’ aside.
Her gaffe caused social media outrage, with many chastising her for generalizing her view on the international media outlet.
But, it seems she has a better response to all the critics who have not allowed her rest since her interview went viral on social media.
Responding to critics on a video that urges women to work hard to support their husbands shared on Ghanafuo.com Instagram page, she said ‘it seems Ghanaians didn’t understand her interview.’
A fan tagged her under the video asking her to heed the advice and her response were:
“It seems you people did not understand my interview”.
It is almost a taboo for women to propose marriage to men in Ghana and Africa in general, but Broadcaster Akumaa Mama Zimbi believes its time that culture changes.
Many are of the opinion that the challenge in proposing love to someone of the opposite sex can be tricky and risky. However, Sex therapist Akumaa Mama Zimbi has said proposing marriage to a man should not be an issue to women.
She told Bola Ray on the Starr Chat show on Starr FM, to propose to a man a lady claims to love isn’t primitive as society has made it to look so.
“Yes! Women can propose marriage to men as well… It’s very important. There’s absolutely nothing wrong if a woman propose to a man. When my husband met me, he proposed and I told him, I’ve heard but as time goes on, I told him I love you more. When a person tells you ‘I love you’ doesn’t mean he has married you.”
In the Ghanaian culture and tradition, it is the man who is expected to propose. The woman is expected to show initial resistance or ‘woman do’ before she gives in no matter how much she loves the man.
A woman who proposes to a man is seen as fast, pushy, cheap, desperate and worthy of love because she has given ‘scholarship’ to a man.
Mama Zimbi also disclosed that generally Ghanaian women are romantic but tradition has shut it. According to her, the education needed before and during marriage are not given by parents.
The mother of six also stated that sex plays a very essential part in a successful marriage and urged women not to shy away from such conversations with their husbands.
The romance between rapper Medikal and his sweetheart, Sister Deborah or Sister Derby has attracted a lot of attention, with much of it being very negative but that has not stopped the couple, who like public displays of affection to forge on.
Just recently, there were rumours that they had broken up but Sister Derby has laughed off those reports insisting that their two-year relationship is going great.
Well, the naysayers may hope in vain for a breakup as the beautiful singer and model tells Showbiz the future is very bright for them. According to her, although Medikal has not officially proposed, there is every indication that he will marry her in the not too distant future.
In an interview with Showbiz, Sister Derby said, “He always tells me that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and that we will be together forever.
He also tells me that he wants me to be the mother of his children.”
Never one to shy away from controversy, Sister Derby, an avid social media user, uses her various accounts to defend Medikal anytime he is embroiled in one issue or the other and although this sometimes displeases people, she doesn’t really care.
“I am always defending people on Twitter, my brother, Lydia Forson etc, I am very outspoken so yes, I defend him,”she said.
“Anytime I come to his defence, they keep telling me that I am old and I also tease them back.
They say it is not ladylike because Tracy doesn’t defend Sarkodie and Michy doesn’t defend Shatta Wale but that’s just me,”she added.
The age difference between the two is one thing that also attracts attention and when asked if she feels bad about the criticism of her being older than Medikal, Sister Derby said no.
“It doesn’t make me feel bad, I have never really dated an older person, it’s either someone my age or younger, they come for me,” she said.
“In the beginning, I was worried and a bit skeptical but he has proven to me that he is even more mature than I am, I follow my heart and I think Medikal too does the same,” she stressed.
Away from her love life, Sister Derby, also known as The African Mermaid is busy in the studio cooking something hot for her fans. “My next track is featuring Efya and it is titled Pure Water, I can’t wait to drop it.
“While I am dropping the song, it will come with a hashtag,”Do Not Litter”.
Every post concerning the song will have that tag line, the song will be released in May to be followed by a video.”
Sister Derby is already on a plastic eradication campaign and environmental pollution with her brother Wanluv Da Kubolor on the theme, “refuse, reuse, recycle”.
According to her, they have recorded a song and shot a video in Accra to that effect.
Sister Derby, also a fashion designer says her DV Clothing is working on a new clothing line, Mermaid Leggings, for women of all shapes and sizes.
It is an open secret that Broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah is a single mother and she has chosen to keep the circumstances under which she got pregnant as a teenager out of the public domain but there a new twist.
The cat is out of the bag now: the baby Daddy of Nana Aba Anamoah has finally shown his face—alleging that he loves his son so much but it has been impossible to be in his life, caused by Nana Aba Anamoah.
For many years, it has been circulated that the father of the outspoken Broadcaster’s son- Paa Kow is a rich politician but it has emerged that, it’s a certain Richard Brown also known as Osebo, an “Italian borga”.
Nana Aba recently posted pictures of herself and her son with a motherly caption and this has eventually revealed the identity of the father of her 18-year-old son.
The post has since been deleted when the boys father one Italy-based Richard Brown who claims to be the biological father of Nana Aba’s son, and no matter what the boy’s mother will say, the boy remains his blood.
Nana recently uploaded some photos of herself and her son to Instagram which was run as a story that acknowledged Nana Aba saying in an interview that she hasn’t spoken to her baby daddy in close to 16 years.
Obviously unhappy with the caption, the father revealed himself and said he loves his son very much irrespective of what picture Nana Aba is out there painting.
In response, Richard wrote: “Daddy luvs u so much my son. God knows I really do son.”
In 2016 Nana Aba revealed that she had not spoken to Paa Kow’s father in the previous 16 years.
In a series of social media conversation on his Facebook wall, the said father of Nana Aba’s son has categorically confirmed that he’s the father of Paa Kow—to the shock of some of his followers.
Last night, Richard posted another photo of Paa Kow and wrote: “U r my blood and I luv u so much no matter what my son.”
It’s being rumored that Osebo has been making efforts to see his son for some time now but Nana Aba Anamoah is preventing this from happening.
Nana Aba hasn’t reacted yet to Richard Brown’s claim, except to delete her recent post that seems to have pushed Richard Brown to come out.
According to Ghanacelebrities.com, Richard Brown did not decide to just quit and leave his son without taking care of him but that was Nana Aba Anamoah’s decision pure and simple to cut the father off even though the son loves him very much.
According to our source, a long time ago when Paa Kow was still a child, everything was going on smoothly as the father was taking care of the kid, paying his school fees at the Silicon Valley school, taking care of him and paying occasional visits.
Things fell apart when Nana Aba Anamoah travelled to the U.K sometime and called Osebo for some money, however at that time the child’s school fees was also due and he was about to pay it.
Osebo told Nana Aba this and said that after paying the child’s fees, he would find some additional money and send to her later but that reportedly pissed off the tv host.
That was the moment she unloaded on Osebo that she does not even need anything from him and he can go to hell and should never contact either her or their son again.
Our source tells us that was the initial break between him and the son but he still made several efforts to make things right and continue to be able to take care of the son but Nana Aba rebuffed them all.
He reportedly sent gifts through two intermediaries to be given to his son, one whom Nana Aba knew who used to work at Metro TV and another friend, to be given to the child, but Anamoah reportedly got pissed off anytime she became aware of these.
Another attempt to solve the issues was when Osebo and our source and others visited Nana Aba’s home for a meeting with her parents but in full view of her parents, Nana Aba sacked them all including and she said she wasn’t interested in solving issues with him.
The father, we also learned, on a few occasions managed to find ways to communicate with the son but every time she found out she blocked his number and we’re told this was corroborated by Nana Aba herself who confessed to that when she appeared on the Delay Show.
After numerous attempts where all were cut off by the mother, Osebo felt he had no choice but to step back and that led to him missing out on his son’s life but he never stopped loving him, the source said.
