“IF YOU TALK ABOUT MY BABY, I WILL COME FOR YOU” – Yvonne Nelson

Ghanaian actress and movie producer Yvonne Nelson has vowed she will go all out to protect her baby daughter, Ryn, from people who say unpleasant things about her.

The actress survived a lot of controversy for getting pregnant for her UK photographer boyfriend, Jamie Roberts, and eventually giving birth to a baby girl.

Many social media commentators and some mainstream media questioned the rationale behind her decision to give birth before getting married and why choosing her photographer boyfriend.

Others simply passed a straight verdict on her decision, describing it as “immoral”.

But hanging out with the 2018 Ghana’s Most Beautiful (GMB) contestants on Tuesday, the award-winning actress indicated that she is personally unfazed about news stories that put her in a bad light.

She stated, however, that she will not take it lightly with people who try to involve her daughter in those stories.

“But I don’t really care about negative stories. I think I’m used to it. People just want to sell their newspapers and whatever, so you just leave them but if you talk about my baby, I will come for you.”

She narrated an instance where she had taken on someone – whose identity she failed to disclose – for making some “unpleasant” commentary about her baby.

“Like the recent one that happened: I don’t want to mention his name but he was talking about the baby,” she told the ladies.

“He kept making very weird comments about her and the last one I just felt it was too much so my lawyer wrote to him and he retracted and apologized.”

She explained that the name of her daughter is a combination of the initials of her boyfriend and her own names – Robert and Yvonne Nelson (RYN) – and that she wants her daughter to have her parents’ names with her wherever she goes.

She used the opportunity to advise the ladies who are vying for the GMB 2018 cash, car and crown never to give up on their pursuits in life even if they fail the first time.

The 10 ladies, who were unveiled Sunday, September 16 at Takoradi,were ushered into the GMB Reality House on Monday and are poised for action.

SARKODIE DEFENDS MENZGOLD

After the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) directed Gold trading firm Menzgold to shut down its operations, a number of personalities have publicly declared their support for the company and its owner.

The latest to join that list of personalities, supporting Nana Appiah Mensah, CEO of Menzgold, is rapper Sarkodie.

Sarkodie, who is a known friend of Mr Mensah, has vouched for his credibility. Rapper Sarkodie says Nana Appiah Mensah genuinely cares about Ghana.

In a tweet, the rapper said, “One man doing the most for our beloved country 🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭 knowing him personally he genuinely cares about the country’s progress … might not know the ins and outs but one thing is for sure – the Nam1 mission is for a better Ghana 🙏🏾 Bless @mn_appiah”.

The SEC had said that Menzgold had been dealing in the purchase and deposit of gold collectables from the public and issuing contracts with guaranteed returns with clients, without a valid license from the Commission.

The business, according to SEC, is in contravention of “Section 109 of Act 929 with consequences under section 2016 (I) of the same Act.”

Meanwhile, Menzgold has urged its customers to keep calm despite the directive from the SEC.

The gold dealership expressed disappointment in the regulator for leaking to the public, its directive to the company in spite of their cooperation and submission to investigations into their business.

Actress Benedicta Gafah, in a video, assured all customers of Menzgold to remain calm. She noted that their gold deposit is safe.

Sensational urban gospel artist, Bra Collins has finally released visuals for his debut single “Yesu din no”, Sena Agbe.

The video was shot mainly inside a chapel and breathe taken locations.

Watch the videos below:

The song rides on the slogan “nyame nsa wo mu” and was inspired by instructions in the Book of Mark and Ecclesiastes which stresses: “Go into the entire world and preach the gospel to all creation…” and “…remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, I find no pleasure in them”.

NOLLYWOOD ACTOR JIM IYKE ARRESTED AT LAGOS AIRPORT

Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, was, this afternoon Monday August 27, 2018, arrested by the policemen at the Lagos airport, after he slapped a staff of Dana Air.

According to Instablog9ja, the ‘badboy’ actor got angry after discovering he had missed his flight to Abuja.

According to sources at the Lagos airport the actor had missed his flight to Abuja, after arriving at the airport late and he got angry. However, when a security staff of the airline was trying to profile him (search him), Iyke gave him a slap, perhaps because he thought the security officer was delaying him further after he arrived late.

The management of Dana airline immediately called in the airport policemen and Iyke was whisked away.

Dana Air’s Media and Communications Manager, Kingsley Ezenwa, who confirmed to the incident, said Iyke was, however, released, after he had apologised to the airline employee.

Ezenwa added that the actor eventually missed the flight, which was still on ground when the incident happened.

SAMIRA BAWUMIA LAUNCHES COALITION AGAINST SEXUAL ABUSE

The Second Lady of the Republic, Samira Bawumia, with support from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Ghana, has launched the “Coalition of People against Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) and Harmful Practices” (CoPASH).

The coalition will spearhead a national response on the issues of SGBV/HPs including case management and increasing prevention efforts in Ghana. The mandate of CoPASH is to bring together a group of agencies, organizations and individuals, who are passionate about the rights of women and girls, to advocate better resources for SGBV survivors throughout the nation.

Speaking at the launch of the coalition, Madam Samira indicated that a lot had been done to address the menace. However, she noted that the interventions had been in different directions which did not suffice to bring efficient results.

She said the coalition would therefore bring together people with strong interests in the issues of SGBV in order to learn and harmonize to create a more concerted approach to achieve efficient results.

“The ball has been rolling but a lot of them have also been rolling in different directions. So then we think let’s bring everybody together; let’s have a concerted approach. Let’s involve people; let’s know what people’s interests are . . .”

She noted that the commitment of government appointees and functionaries to the cause of addressing issues of SGBV was the starting point. However, she bemoaned the poor implementation of the laws concerning SGBV in the country.

“We have the regulations but they are not being implemented. It is how we implement them and make them function effectively . . .” she said.

“Those in charge have to make sure that what is supposed to happen happens and we have to make sure that we provide the amenities they need in order to function properly . . .” she added.

The second lady indicated that the coalition was going to undertake a series of projects including rolling out a database management system to keep information of victims such that accessing information would be much easier . . . whiles ensuring confidentiality.

Chief Superintendent Owusuwaa Kyereneh, National Coordinator of DOVVSU in a presentation on “The One Stop Centre, a Must Have” indicated that the one-stop centre would bring all relevant service providers under one roof such that when a victim walks in, all their needs would be met on the premises.

She noted that the DOVVSU one-stop centre has been under construction for the past 10 years and therefore called on the government and other stakeholders to ensure an immediate and successful completion of the building to enhance their work.

Madam Kyeremeh noted that the building when completed would have facilities such as a temporal shelter, private interview rooms, conference centre, adult cells, juvenile cells, court, children play area, cafeteria, among others, which would help prevent re-victimization and ensure efficient service delivery, guaranteed privacy, free medical and counselling services.

She charged the second lady to use her influence to help raise funds for the successful completion of the centre which started almost a decade ago.
