“I AM NOT AN ATTENTION SEEKER” – Victoria Lebene

Actress Victoria Lebene has denied a recent picture which went viral showing her nipples seeking to escape from her blouse was an attention seeking ploy.

The 29-year-old actress says she is no attention seeker thus she didn’t need such a stance to catch anyone’s eye.

“No, not at all, that is not me; I am not an attention seeker and I know the right things to do to get to the top. The more reason, I believe in hard work and bidding my time”, she said.

Victoria Lebene went on “I know when the time is right; I will get there but to leave home with the intention of doing this to get to the top? Ohh no.

“As someone who knows how important it is to build a brand, keep and maintain it, I will not engage in a thing like that on purpose.

“I feel bad myself and this is not something I would want people to emulate. That part of the body is supposed to be private and not for public viewing”, Victoria Lebene told Graphic Showbiz.

“I am therefore aplogising to everyone. I am very sorry for what happened. I want my fans, the brand I represent and my family to know I am very sorry but the truth is that, I will not intentionally wear a blouse just show my nipples. For what purpose?

“As a brand influencer, I have a lot of people who look up to me so I will not want to do anything that will tarnish their image. There is no way I will expose my chest just in the name of fame.

Explaining what what happened, Victoria Lebene said “It was at MzVee’s birthday party at Movenpic Hotel and I had jacket over my blouse. So while taking pictures, I pulled my jacket down my shoulders little without thinking much about it. I had no idea my nipples were visible like that in the top I was wearing.

“If I knew it will come out this indecent, I wouldn’t have posed like that. Then again, the photographers did not prompt me, I would have positioned myself well or not even posed like that,” Victoria Lebene told Showbiz.

Another issue her ‘wardrobe malfunction’ episode raised was that some Netizens wanted to know what she really does for a living because they do not see the movies she claims she features in.

“I am an actress, I have starred in a number of movies. The fact that my movies are not on the market or all over the place does not mean I am not working. You know, after shooting a movie, a lot more goes into it before it hits the market.

“ Apart from that, I have some ambassadorial deals and these things show that, I am working. Like I said earlier, I am taking my steps gradually and with time, Ghana, Africa and the world will hear of me”, she added.

“IT IS SO DIFFICULT FOR A CELEBRITY TO GET GENUINE LOVE” – Kwabena Kwabena

Highlife Singer, Kwabena Kwabena, has said he is scared to be in a new relationship after his first and second marriages crashed.

“For now, I’m scared. I’m scared [Bola],” the ‘Aso’ hitmaker stated on Starr Chat Wednesday with Bola Ray.

“The reason why I’m scared,” he explained, “is because it is so difficult for a celebrity to get genuine love. It is so difficult.”

According to him, his two marriages were unsuccessful because the ladies, his now divorced wives, expected him to be without faults.

“It is unfortunate when people come to you out of the fact that you are Kwabena Kwabena,” he stated.

When Bola Ray quizzed if that meant the ladies did not marry him because they loved him, Kwabena Kwabena snarled: “I can confidently say that both marriages were like that…due to the circumstances by which I met them. Both women are not women I went out there looking for.”

The multiple award-winning musician also debunked assertions that the marriage of his manager Frema Adunyame collapsed because they were having an affair.

“Who on earth will leave a marriage because of another human being?” he asked, adding “people just want to destroy people and defame people especially when marriages break and somebody is talking.”

According to him, “it is ridiculous for any human being to say that you left a marriage because of a woman or you left a marriage because of a man. To me, that’s most unethical.”

He further noted that reports that they have been dating since the collapse of their respective marriages are untrue.

On the inking of Ms Adunyame’s nickname on his arm, Kwabena Kwabena said: “The reason is simple. It is to appreciate something that she has done for me.”

SEX FOR ROLES IS A PERSONAL DECISION – Akorfa Edjeani Asiedu

Veteran actress Akorfa Edjeani Asiedu has stated that the Ghana Film Act, which was passed in 2016, can’t protect upcoming actresses from sleeping with movie directors and producers for movie roles.

She stated that sleeping with producers or directors is a personal decision and the law has no control over it.

Akorfa, who was speaking at a film stakeholders’ advocacy meeting in Accra as part of activities to get government to operationalise the Ghana Film Act, indicated that it is only in the case of rape, which borders on criminality that the laws of the Ghana can take effect.

“With the issue of directors and producers taking advantage of actresses, I don’t think anybody can force you in that sense. It is an individual thing and a personal decision to allow a producer or director to take advantage of you. The authority on the Film Act cannot deal with that per se. It is an individual thing or decision that a female film stakeholder has to take a stand not to be taken advantage of,” she added.

The Film Law, which provides guidelines to how the film industry should be regulated among others, was passed by ex-President John Mahama months before he handed over to President Akufo-Addo. But the law is not operationalised yet.

A number of associations in the Ghanaian filmmaking industry have started advocacy programmes to get stakeholders to co-operate with the current government to help put measures in place to make the law work.

The associations spearheading the advocacy programmes are the Ghana Actors Guild, Film Crew Association, Women In Film & Television, Film Producers Association of Ghana, Film Marketers Association, among others.

The group’s advocacy programme had the various heads of associations declare open support to help operationalise the law.

David Dontoh, Oscar Provencal, Ken Fiati, Akorfa Edjeani Asiedu and others were present at the programme.
