GHANAIANS TOO JUDGMENTAL – Actress Jessica Larny

Model, Jessica Larny, says she is quite afraid of the sharp tongues of the Ghanaian public, especially the way they pass judgment over anything they believe is wrong.

Jessica’s specialty is in boudoir photography but over the years she has done her shoots outside Ghana and her reason is that the country is not ready for such shoots.

Boudoir photography is a niche area within portrait photography and is a mash-up of portraiture, fashion, fine art, glamour and erotic photography.

For Jessica, the insults she will suffer at the hands of Ghanaians will not even encourage her to continue doing what she loves so she prefers working with clients in other countries who understand what the concept is all about.

“I have been doing these shoots for years as a model and from my little experience in Ghana; I do not think Ghana is ready for such shoots or for such pictures to be circulated.

“The insults and name calling and tagging can even want to make you drop your career. That is the more reason, the works I have done over the years are not for the people here but for clients and photographers in different countries,” she told Showbiz from her base in Nigeria.

“There are different types of models, whilst others will prefer to be known for swimsuits, some would prefer doing for accessories. These are normal here and acceptable but the Boudoir is not and so when they see it, they start tagging you a bad girl and pouring all kinds of curse words on you which is not fair,” she added.

Jessica also appealed to Ghanaians to stop tagging models as bad girls. “You see, modelling is also a career worth celebrating. It is something we do with passion and you have to love it before you can do it.

“It takes a lot of courage and confidence to be a model and a great level of patience to remain in it so I think models deserve all the respect,” she said.

Jessica is also an actress and has featured in movies like Stalemate, True Lies, I Do and The Table. she has also played roles in a number of series which have aired on TV and online.

Modelling however is taking up a lot of her time but the Heels and Sneakers actress says she is not abandoning acting.

“You know our movie industry is now bouncing back so while we wait to be called for roles, we have to get busy and these shoots are one of the things that get me busy as well as my masseuse company. I am in Nigeria for a movie shoot then from here, I will be heading to the UK for a boudoir photo shoot,” she said.

A graduate of the Central University College, she won the first Miss Teen Ghana at age 15.

I PAID NANA ABA’S UK TUITION FEES – Baby Daddy Claims

The man at the center of the drama on the paternity of Nana Aba’s son, Paa Kow, Osebo Richard Brown has launched a self-defense stating that contrary to all public allegations of irresponsibility on his part, he paid the school fees of Nana Aba Anamoah when she enrolled in a UK school to further her studies.

In the audio recorded during his first radio interview on the matter, Osebo, as he is called, revealed to CJ, host of Accra FM’s morning show, that contrary to reports that he neglected his son all this while, he was rather barred from seeing the boy.

According to Osebo, Nana Aba Anamoah forbade him from seeing his son because he refused to give her money to pay her tuition fees in the UK years ago at a time the boy’s school fees was still unpaid.

According to him, Nana Aba felt her fees was more important than his son’s but he chose to pay his son’s first before hers. He said his decision to pay the boy’s fees and postpone that of Nana Aba to the next week infuriated her and she asked him not to contact her or the son again.

Since that time, he said, he has had to even give gifts to the son through others pretending they bought it before Nana Aba allows the son to accept it.

While Nana Aba herself has refused to publicly comment on the issue, her close friend who spoke to MyNewsGh.vom alleged that Osebo refused to accept the pregnancy when it happened. Osebo has debunked that version of events.

Highlife artiste, Bisa Kdei has indicated that he is happy to be single because dating comes with a lot of problems he cannot handle.

According to the artiste, he will rather remain single than get involved with a lady who does not understand the rudiments of being a celebrity and will complain about the least thing to frustrate him.

He said “If someone doesn’t understand you it becomes a problem. Take Instagram and my fans as examples, you get messages from them all the time and if the person you are dating doesn’t understand that, then the problem comes in. I am not even ready to date, I am happy being single”.

Bisa Kdei who was speaking to Delay on the “Delay Show” indicated that although he has no child with any woman “I don’t have a child with anyone but I wish I did”.

She is my big sister, I never slept with her. I have denied that affair so many times. People just don’t want to believe me. We never had sex. Never.”

Moesha Boduong has fired at Ghanaians for criticising her recent interview with American media giant, Cable News Network (CNN).

The actress, in an interview with Christiane Amanpour on “Sex & Love Around the World” show, claimed that she funds her ‘ostentatious’ lifestyle through such activities since the acting jobs are not really paying.

Her gaffe caused social media outrage, with many chastising her for generalizing her view on the international media outlet.

But, it seems she has a better response to all the critics who have not allowed her rest since her interview went viral on social media.

A fan tagged her under the video asking her to heed the advice and her response were:

“It seems you people did not understand my interview”.

MEDIKAL WANTS TO SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE WITH ME – Sister Derby

The romance between rapper Medikal and his sweetheart, Sister Deborah or Sister Derby has attracted a lot of attention, with much of it being very negative but that has not stopped the couple, who like public displays of affection to forge on.

Just recently, there were rumours that they had broken up but Sister Derby has laughed off those reports insisting that their two-year relationship is going great.

Well, the naysayers may hope in vain for a breakup as the beautiful singer and model tells Showbiz the future is very bright for them. According to her, although Medikal has not officially proposed, there is every indication that he will marry her in the not too distant future.

In an interview with Showbiz, Sister Derby said, “He always tells me that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and that we will be together forever.

He also tells me that he wants me to be the mother of his children.”

Never one to shy away from controversy, Sister Derby, an avid social media user, uses her various accounts to defend Medikal anytime he is embroiled in one issue or the other and although this sometimes displeases people, she doesn’t really care.

“I am always defending people on Twitter, my brother, Lydia Forson etc, I am very outspoken so yes, I defend him,” she said.

“Anytime I come to his defence, they keep telling me that I am old and I also tease them back.

They say it is not ladylike because Tracy doesn’t defend Sarkodie and Michy doesn’t defend Shatta Wale but that’s just me,” she added.

The age difference between the two is one thing that also attracts attention and when asked if she feels bad about the criticism of her being older than Medikal, Sister Derby said no.

“It doesn’t make me feel bad, I have never really dated an older person, it’s either someone my age or younger, they come for me,” she said.

“In the beginning, I was worried and a bit skeptical but he has proven to me that he is even more mature than I am, I follow my heart and I think Medikal too does the same,” she stressed.

Away from her love life, Sister Derby, also known as The African Mermaid is busy in the studio cooking something hot for her fans. “My next track is featuring Efya and it is titled Pure Water, I can’t wait to drop it.

“While I am dropping the song, it will come with a hashtag,”Do Not Litter”.

Every post concerning the song will have that tag line, the song will be released in May to be followed by a video.”

Sister Derby is already on a plastic eradication campaign and environmental pollution with her brother Wanluv Da Kubolor on the theme, “refuse, reuse, recycle”.

According to her, they have recorded a song and shot a video in Accra to that effect.

Sister Derby, also a fashion designer says her DV Clothing is working on a new clothing line, Mermaid Leggings, for women of all shapes and sizes.
