TV AFRICA INTRODUCES GOSSIP SHOW “PAE MU KA”

TV Africa has shown the process of becoming a strong emerging television brand in the face of the fierce competition on the local market front through the re-launch of its newly branded programs and shows.

PAE MU KA, a gossip show translated in the Akan language which simply means “say it all with no holds barred” seems to be the hottest and most sought-after live gossip show on TV today. The show hits you with the latest trending issues on celebrity faux pas.

This new direction and market positioning stem from building a brand reputation of an Afropolitan status with a blend of pan-Africanism.

PAE MU KA is hosted by a young, vibrant, fire-brand called in showbiz as Aysha Papabi. The show is the collector of all filla – good and bad, the packaging warehouse of all celebrity dilemmas, brouhaha and confusion; and the reporter of the good news.

It seeks to narrate, reveal, explain and highlight in bits and pieces everything showbiz.

Aysha is a rare millennial born, 14th September, in Kwahu in the Easter Region. She exhibits a lot of character, finesse, and maturity in her presentation style. Some would categorize her as the budding young potential.

Stay glued to PAE MU KA every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 4pm-4: 30 pm, who knows…You could be the next on the hot seat.

VICTORIA LEBENE SLAMS #FEARKILLSDREAMS CAMPAIGN

Actress/Model, Victoria Lebene has slammed an on going social media campaign on fear #FearKillsDreams.

The campaign which seeks to bring to the fore how people live their lives in the shadow of their fears and how they can face their fear enable them accomplish their full potential, features some of Ghana’s leading known personalities such as Nana Aba Anamoah, Kofi Okyere Darko, Brommon, Jon Germain, Samini, Edem, Kemini Amanor and Fiifi Coleman speaking to their individual definitions of fear and what it does to us.

However, Victoria Lebene seem to disagree with the initiators of the #FearKillsDreams because she believes it is people who kill dreams and not fear as the campaign seek to project.

She expressed her opinion about the on going fear campaign via her Instagram.

Read her post unedited below:

“Dedicating this article to some of the young talents in the Creative arts industry and in Ghana as a whole. 

I stand against the notion that fear kills dreams. Yes it’s true that fear is the unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger. Unfortunately, negative thoughts and self-doubt breeds negativity. Inferiority complex, low self-esteem, lack of confidence and a lot more. All these are contributing factors to fear but the question is where are all these being derived from?

 There are tons of women out there who are one way or the other frustrated, they have poured out energies to no good, they’ve tried seeking platforms where they could execute their talents and aspirations but hardly do they get the chance. Fraustration out of these canker of #SexForJobs #SexForGrades #SexForRoles #SexforEverything. Some authorities that would want sex while they seek platforms to exhibit talents or jobs to better themselves.

 I’ve had series of messages through my media platforms of young ladies and their encounter with men asking for help to bring forth their modeling or acting career and some who are even ready to work with me as helps in my house. Look at some young ladies going all out in bikini and semi nude shoots, going out for auditions, meeting with agency casting calls, sleeping in music studios and so forth. Do you ever think they are fearful? Do you think if they were that scared, afraid, they would ever dare to? It’s simply because they do not have the right platforms to exhibit, practice and execute their thoughts and capabilities.

I think it’s high time we embraced talents from all angles, appreciate young talents and crafts, accept people the way they are and help in bettering them even if they have flaws and stop focusing on fear, fear has noting to do with dreams unless there is no hope to live that Dream. 

I am standing in for the youth in this country that have somehow tried their best to pursue their dreams and had no opportunity even when they tried. Let’s kill the causes of all dream killers and rather advocate for #dreamkillsfear It is people that kill dreams, not ‘ fear ‘Young generations need genuine help without no strings attached!”

NANA ABA, KOD, SAMINI, EDEM, OTHERS IN #fearkillsdreams CAMPAIGN

Ghanaians are gearing up for what is set to be an emotion-filled campaign on a subject that resonates with us all, that one thing that inhibits us from achieving our full potential: FEAR.

The first campaign video went live on Monday, and features some of Ghana’s leading known personalities such as Nana Aba Anamoah, Kofi Okyere Darko, Brommon, Jon Germain, Samini, Edem, Kemini Amanor and Fiifi Coleman speaking to their individual definitions of fear and what it does to us.

The campaign seeks to bring to the fore how people live their lives in the shadow of their fears; how they allow the fears to hold them back; to inhibit them from taking that important step in accomplishing their full potential in all spheres of life.

Over the next few weeks, the personalities will speak to their biggest fears in life and will also give the opportunity to Ghanaians from all walks of life to join in on the conversation to share their unique, genuine stories of their biggest fears.

The initiators of the campaign say they hope that this emotion-enabled campaign will spark an awakening for all who are struggling to overcome their individual fears and, in the end, provide that motivation, and confidence to help people face their fears and overcome them to achieve whatever dream they have.

“My thing is that if somebody wants to do that, just walk away because I know my value, I know what I bring to the table, I know that hey, you called me for the job and I know I can nail it so if you know that you want something in exchange, I’m sorry,” she said.
