I ONCE HAD SEX IN A PLANE – Actress Ella Mensah 

Nigerian-based Ghanaian actress, Ella Mensah has disclosed that she’s had sex in a plane.

In a recent interview, the actress said: “I once had sex in a plane. It was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever done. But at the same time, it was so much fun”.

Mensah also recounted an encounter she had with armed robbers in Lagos and the promising relationships she lost to save her career.

“In 2018, I almost lost my life. Armed robbers attacked me on my way home from a movie location in Lagos. It was scary! But I’m grateful to God for saving my life and for blessing me afterwards.

Another unforgettable experience was when I lost two relationships because of acting. Both men had problems with me playing some roles and eventually asked me to quit acting, which I refused. One even asked me to choose between him and my career. Obviously, I chose my career. Most African men are extremely jealous and can’t stand another man kissing their woman, even in a movie. It’s sad though; I guess it’s what it is” she said

Although she is making it big in Nigeria, Ella, who has starred in movies like Bed of Roses, I’m about to Wed, Playboy, Pretty Queen, Shakira and Deadline, believes Ghana has so many good actors and wishes the government would invest more in the entertainment sector.

“I’M NOT HIV POSITIVE” – Man Accused of Infecting Female Celebrities With HIV, Shares His Test Result

CEO of Maddhaus Entertainment Mr. Livingston Abani has finally reacted to reports that he is HIV positive and allegedly spreading it in Ghana.

The Ghana based Nigerian Businessman has vehemently denied the reports with an official statement accompanied with results of his HIV test to prove that he does not have the virus as it’s being reported in the media.

A snapshot of a post on snap chat sufficed online on Tuesday evening February 18, 2019 in which a lady with user name “fatp*ssy055” alleged that Livingston Abani is HIV positive and has since set out on an agenda to spread the pernicious virus.

The screenshots mentioned actress and Social Media star Moesha Boduong and Musician Tiffany as two of the many female Ghanaian popular figures Mr. Livingstone has allegedly had sexual affair with. But he has denied all the reports.

Read his full statement below.

“I was greeted yesterday in the morning with humbug and a manufactured storyline, which seeks to dent my hard earned reputation but I’m confident Ghanaians are discerning and will not take this unfounded allegation hook line and sinker. 

To begin with, I will want to state emphatically that I’m not HIV positive and those behind this are set out for no good. I advise the dawdle snap chat lady who has been recruited to find something else to do than to want to go on this tangent of which ascertaining the truth is just a walk to the hospital for a test. The test results accompany this statement so they can feed their ignorance.

I say verily, destroying my reputation will not launder. This allegation is just a figment of their own imagination and the test results flaws their claims. 

In a series of posts, the said lady claimed I have had sex with dozens of women and celebrities unprotected and paid them huge sums of money. She even went ahead to mention some names and that is rather unfortunate because these people are young Ghanaian women who are working hard and dragging their names like this is unacceptable. 

I’m a man of affairs and an entertainment industry savvy, hence I have always been available to offer help to players in any capacity I deem fit or as much as my strength could allow, but not for sexual pleasure in return – I support the industry out of gratuity and love for the art.

I want to inform her and her cronies that I have been in Ghana since 2002 and not three years ago as she claims, its palpable she has been misguided with information and I advice she desist from peddling falsehood or I allow the laws to take its course.

I hereby entreat all and sundry to treat this malicious fabrication with the discontent it deserves. The matter has been reported to the police and I have since informed my lawyers as we gear up towards seeking legal redress.”

Livingston Abani

Thank you”.

$30,000 NEEDED TO PAY ANOKYE SUPREMO’S HOSPITAL BILLS & TRANSPORT HIS BODY TO GHANA

Manager of the late Highlife Singer Anokye Supremo, Isaac Kwabena Zachariah is appealing to all Ghanaians to contribute financially to help the family of the musician retrieve his mortal remains from the hospital in India.

The young Highlife musician was battling for his life at the Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Mukundapur in India after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor.

The artiste, affectionately known as Daddy Lumba Jr., was diagnosed with an illness after experiencing severe headache that affected his eyes and was therefore flown overseas to receive medical attention.

He passed away on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, after surviving the surgery but reportedly developing a sudden cardiac arrest which claimed his life.

According to the late musician’s Manager who is still in India ensuring the corpse is released by the hospital and returned to Ghana for a befitting burial, there are some outstanding arrears that need to be paid before the authorities of the hospital will give the body to the family.

He noted that the hospital bills that have to be paid amount to 21,000 dollars and “this amount excludes the costs involved in flying the mortal remains to Ghana. It is left with $21,000 after some people donated some amounts to foot the bill while Anokye Supremo was receiving treatment. The total amount of money we spent plus the 21,000 will amount to 30,000” and the hospital is “demanding the payment before the body will released”.

Though the family has to raise the $21,000 dollars, it doesn’t mean the late musician will finally touch down on the soil of Ghana, the Manager further disclosed and explained to host Kwame Adjetia on Neat FM’s Entertainment Ghana on Monday, February 4, 2019 that there are other procedures that need to be followed which also demand financial help.

He said about 2,000 dollars has to be ready for the body to be prepared for transport to Ghana and this amount also doesn’t include the costs to fly the corpse.

Detailing the host on what needs to be done to ensure the body arrives in the country in peace; the Manager said “we have to contact Ghana customs to know the processes to undertake to bring the body. After raising the money for the undertaker in charge of the corpse which is 2019 dollars, we have to also think about how to foot the bill for the flight that will convey it. I’m also told that there are other financial needs that must be met when the body arrives in Ghana but we’re in talks to cover all the financial costs”.

He appealed with Ghanaians and sympathisers of the late musician to contribute their quota to help bring Anokye Supremo’s remains back home.

“Anyone who wants to give some money must contact this mobile number: 0243152213. This line is for the deceased but Kofi Adoma (of Kofi TV) is the person put in charge to receive the amounts and paid them into the hospital account for the release of the body,” he earnestly requested.
