ASKING COUPLES WHEN THEY WILL GIVE BIRTH IS UNNECESSARY PRESSURE – Diana Antwi Hamilton

Multi-award-winning Gospel musician Diana Antwi Hamilton has advised that people avoid asking married couples when they will make babies as that could be emotionally draining.

The musician who has had her own experiences in a very sensitive interview with NY DJ, revealed such questions were draining to most couples and could break them down emotionally.

Blessed with twins after 5 years of marriage, Diana revealed she cried at the end of every month but had so much hope and believed God would answer her prayers.

“At the end of every month, I cried, so you can imagine for five years because I gave birth almost 6 years into marriage but I was very quick enough to wipe it off and tried every month. However, I am a woman of God and not a God of a woman so the human side of me will come in and so I will be sad” she said.

“Don’t give people unnecessary pressure! It’s either they are trying and it’s not happening or they have no plans of having kids but not yet or they are battling with the emotional stress of experiencing a miscarriage. Don’t freshen up a wound that is closing up and so let’s stop it”, she warned.

IT IS DISAPPOINTING HOW CORRUPTION HAS INCREASED UNDER PRESIDENT AKUFO-ADDO – Serwaa Amihere

Television personality, Serwaa Amihere has indicated that the president’s fight against corruption in his three years in office has been nothing but a figment of the imagination.

According to the GHOne TV news anchor, the promises President Nana Akufo-Addo made during his campaign period, particularly in relation to fighting corruption, to an extent gained him the striking victory in the 2016 elections.

While presenting her candid assessment of the Akufo-Addo-led administration, she noted that upon his assumption of office those promises have become nothing more than a charade.

She wrote, “for a president who swept to power on the back of anti-corruption, it has been disappointing watching the canker deepen with constant outbreak of scandals. He hasn’t provided the no-nonsense, all action leader against corruption that we were promised.”

“I honestly cannot recollect one instance where any corruption case was seriously tackled with the culprit…So corruption for me has been a major downside of this government.”

She made this known in a series of tweets which she captioned, “My assessment of Akufo-Addo’s government so far.”

Amongst other issues raised in her assessment were some promises President Akufo-Addo made during the build-up to the elections but has failed to fulfil them as president. She was, however, quick to add some achievements of the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government which has been impactful in lives of Ghanaians.

“Of course Free SHS has come with some challenges like overcrowding in school which has led to the double-track system that many Ghanaians do not approve of…There is Planting for Foods and Jobs which has boosted Agriculture in the country…Some stability has been brought to our macroeconomic indeces and they are all pointing in the right direction…,” she wrote.

As per usual, reactions flooded in – while others questioned why the TV personality failed to appropriately assess her piece, others followed her step and provided their opinions on the state of affairs.

“IF YOU ARE A WOMAN IN THIS INDUSTRY & MEN IN CHARGE ARE NOT ASKING YOU FOR SEX, THEN THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU” – Actress Vicky Zugah

Actress Vicky Zugah has revealed that most up-and-coming actresses who are desperate to get to the top easily give in to sexual advances from movie producers and directors.

The actress noted that the phenomenon of sex for roles is a growing canker in the movie industry and producers are using that to take advantage of young actresses.

Speaking in an interview with Naa Ashorkor on Showbiz A-Z on Joy FM Saturday, Vicky stated that the issue is on the rise and it is absolutely strange if a director does not ask an actress for sex for a role.

“Sex for roles in the movie industry is very real. I won’t lie about. It’s happened, it’s happening and it will happen again tomorrow and it’s normal,” she said.

“If you are a woman and you are in the industry and no one is asking you out like a producer, a director or someone who is in charge isn’t asking you for sex then, there is something wrong with you. This is what I think because men are attracted to what they see. If you are a fine girl, they will definitely ask you for something,” the ‘My Darling Princess’ actress explained.

“Some [up-and-coming actresses] who are very desperate. They like to get to the top in a minute, so they give it out to get what they want so it’s very real,” she revealed.

With over a decade’s experience in the movie industry, Vicky Zugah disclosed that several directors and producers have demanded sex from her before they give her a role.

Asked if she has ever given in to any of the advances, she responded in the negative and said in “most cases I lose the role.”

The mother of two, however, admitted that she has had a sexual relationship with a director but not for a role.

“You don’t have to necessarily put people in a movie just because you are sleeping with them or you are dating them; it’s not right. This is one of the reasons the industry is not progressing,” Vicky lamented.

She added that most big movies feature actresses who have slept with directors or producers, and therefore, do not deserve their roles.

“You see some people playing a certain kind of role that they don’t fit in,” she stated.

The actress, who also revealed that some directors and producers demand cash for roles, advised up-and-coming actresses to work hard if they want to get to the top.
