EBONY’S DEATH HAS BROUGHT ME CLOSER TO GOD – Efia Odo

She is known for her racy pictures so when she posted images of herself well covered up on social media recently, many were those who believed the lifestyle of actress, Efia Odo, has changed.

Well, those harbouring such thoughts should have a rethink because that is not happening.

Efia Odo, who is currently a co-host on Head Start and The Arena on Kwese Free Sports says she has no plans to change anything about her style.

“ My new pictures don’t mean anything. They do not mean I have changed or regret anything about myself. I host a TV show now and the thing is, I cannot wear bikinis to the office so I take photos in what I wear to work”, she told Showbiz on Tuesday.

According to her, covering up in her pictures does not mean she has become a different person, “It is interesting ohh, please I have not changed. There is nothing to change about me, I am still the bubbly and I -don’t-care- kind of person.

It is normal for people to expect that I take on some kind on rebranding just because I have taken up a new role as a TV host but no, I’m still me. The same old Efia Odo,” she added.

However, while Efia Odo, real name Andrea Owusu, insists she will not swap her lifestyle for any other, she has taken a second look at her relationship with her Maker after the death of her friend Ebony Reigns, who passed on through a gory accident in February,

“If there is anything that has stirred some change in me then it is the death of Ebony.

Her demise has brought me closer to God, my prayer life has intensified. Her death got me thinking and asking myself a lot of questions since I don’t not know when I will also be called to eternity.

“ I questioned my relationship with my fellow human beings and I asked myself, does it mirror the love the Bible preaches about?

How is my forgiving nature like?

How many times do I involve God in the things I do?

Where will I go after this life among others?

“I asked all these questions and I decided to do better in my relationship with others, be happy, and apologize when I go wrong. It’s in this spirit that I publicly apologized to actress, Fella Makafui when I threw shades at her.”

Efia disclosed she is happy with where she is now in her life, “I love what I am doing right now at Kwese TV.

I don’t have any formal training in hosting a TV show but I enjoy what I do. I had to learn on the job and the team has also been amazing.”

Born in Ghana, she left for the United States at the age of five until she returned to the country a couple of years ago to pursue her passion for acting.

Efia, who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the Nyack University in the US says her ultimate goal is to take her career beyond the shores of Africa.

I ONCE SOLD CHAMBER POTS – Comedian Funny Face Reveals

Popular comedian, Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, also known as Funny Face, has opened up on his past struggles in life prior to attaining his current fame.

Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, the “Cow and Chicken” actor told Andy Dosty that he went through hell just so he could become a star.

He recalled how he sold chamber pots to make ends meet, adding that he once walked from Kwame Nkrumah Circle to Adom FM’s Studio to speak on a one-minute joke segment.

“I have sold chamber pot before. I walked for two years from [Kwame Nkrumah] Circle to Tema to give a minute’s joke on the radio [Adom FM]”, he told Andy.

Asked to give a motivational message to people who may be considering giving up in life, Funny Face said: “they should master the courage because after the storm comes the calm”.

He added that anytime he listens to Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy’s “Tomorrow” song, it reminds him of his past.

RAPPER C-ZAR QUITS MUSIC

When Hiplife artiste, C-Zar announced his presence on the music scene in the year 2000 with his debut Afei Na Ma Ba album, he elicited many laughs for some of his lyrics and rhymes but also won admirers for his style.

The laughs notwithstanding, the old student of T.I Ahmadiyya Senior High School enjoyed a good career with hit albums like Sunsum Sofo (2003), Araba Lawson (2006), Mercy Lokko (2008) with the last release being Azonto Pandemic in 2012.

It’s been six years after the release of his last album and C-Zar’s fans have been awaiting more songs but their hopes may be dashed as he says he is out for the count.

While chatting with the Graphic Showbiz on Tuesday, the artiste admitted that his musical ambitions are over, considering his decision to go into business full time.

“I have quit music for good, I don’t want to die poor. Sincerely, show business doesn’t pay in our part of the world. See how all the veterans die as if they have never been in the limelight.

I don’t even want to see myself in such a condition in future where my family has to appeal for funds to take care of me should I fall sick,” he said.

“It is for this reason that I have decided to say goodbye to this trade which only gives you fame and attention but doesn’t pay so well.

I can say that barely 10 people in showbiz are really raking in huge sums which suits their status as celebrities but in reality, many are broke because it doesn’t pay much,” he added.

In the early 2000s, C-Zar was one of the popular artistes in the Hiplife industry.

His hit songs like Araba Lawson and Mercy Lokko were on the charts and the latter song won him the Hiplife Song of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards in 2009.

But the native of Nnaso in the Ashanti Region said while he was enjoying all the buzz, he was barely making enough from it.

“During my prime, there were producers who saw music as business and invested in it so until they paid for the cost of their investments, the artiste may not benefit.

“The truth is that, often times, there isn’t much after the producers have paid for all the expenses for cost of production so while you are making big hits, the returns are really little,” he said.

His inability to make good money as he wanted from music pushed him into the electricals business which he ran while making music.

And over a decade after and with three branches, C-Zar told Showbiz it is an important decision to quit music entirely now.

When asked if he decided to move on because he couldn’t keep up with the competition from the younger acts, he said, “Competition? I don’t know about competition getting me out of the game.

I’m not a failure and when you check my records, you will notice that all my albums were successful.

“I understand the game so I give the people what they want and that has been my trademark.

Music is time consuming and I don’t think I have the energy to juggle it with my business especially when it fetches me little returns,” C-Zar stated.
