“When you are continuously removing pants and showing nipples like a Pono auditions, which company will take you serious?
Don’t say us when it’s just you, shut up and suffer your misery instead of disrespecting the creative arts field, some of us have made a living out of it and created jobs for others through it.
How dare you jeopardise the hardworks of Yvonne Nelson, Okoro, Mcbrown etc because of your nonsense lifestyle.
Wear a kaba & slit for once and see the number of brand endorsements that will chase you.

Efia Odo wished for there to be new-age minded people to be put at the helm of affairs of the country.
Her tweet read: “Somebody working in McDonalds in America makes more money than most of us celebs in Ghana. Ghana fame brings no money! All this fame and Artists are struggling. The people in position all need to be fired and new age minded people need to be hired. We need a reset button !”
Many fans and followers of the actress and social media goddess could not agree more as they shared stories of their relatives working abroad making millions of cedis.

Celebrity and lifestyle blogger, Ameyaw Debrah has opened up on his professional relationship with award-winning dancehall star, Shatta Wale.
While speaking in an exclusive interview with Nkonkonsa.com, Ameyaw Debrah stated categorically that he had blacklisted Shatta Wale for the past six years and still counting.
According to Ameyaw, the whole blacklisting started after he put up a story of how Shatta Wale who was billed to for a show together with Samini some years ago, performed for hours before allowing Samini to also perform.
Ameyaw said after he reported on the issue, he received a call from Shatta Wale’s camp and they accused him of being biased towards the Ayoo hitmaker.
The celebrity blogger added that the conversation ended with a threat after Shatta Wale told him to stop writing about him if he (Ameyaw) valued his life.
Ameyaw added that from then on, he decided to blacklist Shatta Wale and barred himself from writing about him.
Ghana’s arguably number 1 blogger went on to add that he happened to be on the same flight with Shatta Wale and other stars on a trip to Tamale the next day.
Ameyaw said while he captured all the people that were billed for the show being organized by Mimie Andani, he left out Shatta Wale.
He recounted that when people asked why he did that, he explained that he had been in a conversation with the dancehall star and he received a threat.
Ameyaw Debrah added that even six years after making the decision to block one of the most influential entertainers in Ghana, he was still thriving and doing very well for himself.
According to Ameyaw, he would only post something which had Shatta Wale on it only if it was paid PR for an event.

When asked who the most influential Ghanaian artiste was, Ameyaw Debrah indicated that he would pick Sarkodie over Shatta Wale any day.
