I AM DONE WITH NIGERIAN MEN – Yvonne Nelson

Celebrated actress Yvonne Nelson says she does not intend to date any Nigerian man due to her past experience.

According to her, she is now ready for a serious date but will not consider Nigerian men among her suitors.

The award-winning actress was speaking on ‘Cooks and Braggarts’, a cooking show hosted by Yvonne Okoro. She said she once posted on her Instagram page seeking a date but was shocked that no one reached out.

“You mean my post? No! No! No one reached out to me…maybe they don’t believe me. It is what it is. I am looking for one. Infact get me one in Ghana,” Yvonne Nelson said.

“As for Nigerian men I am done,” the actress jokingly added. It will be recalled that Yvonne Nelson was previously in a serious relationship with Nigerian artiste Iyanya.

However, the relationship between the pair did not last, as it ended on the rocks some months later.

“We broke up because we hardly had time for each other. I was hustling and I would do four shows in a day and I will make 2 million. So, I won’t say because I was in love with a woman I’m going to see money and I’m going to lay back,” Iyanya later explained in an interview.

Perhaps, it is Yvonne Nelson’s experience with Iyanya is what has led to her decision not to ever date Nigerian men.

I AM DATING BUT KEEPING IT SECRET FOR NOW– Yvonne Okoro

Ghanaian star actress, Yvonne Okoro, has revealed that she is currently in a serious relationship but she has refused to give details of the man in her life.

Contrary to rumours suggesting that she was single, Okoro said she is not, adding that she is currently seeing someone. She made this revelation on the ‘McBrown Kitchen’ show on Sunday, January 27, 2019.

She was on the show to cook what is locally known as ‘mpotonpoto’. Okoro, however, refused to name who this man is, stressing that she wanted to keep that a secret for some time. Explaining her reasons for the secrecy, the actress said she wants to keep her private life away from the media and public.

According to her, broadcasting her relationship as she had done in the past has not helped her, and so she had learnt a lesson to “zip her mouth” this time round.

She noted also that society frowns on and brand women who happen to have had more boyfriends as bad people without even knowing what happens in the relationship which leads to the breakup. “On the other hand, society does not see anything wrong with a man who has more relationships, they are viewed as champions while we (women) are called names so I am zipping my mouth now,” Yvonne sadly said.

She also made further revelation about her family life, giving her full name as Yvonne Chinyere Okereke Okoro. Okoro disclosed that her mother was a trader and enterprenuer. Her father, an Ibo from Nigeria, she said, was a farmer and a real estate developer. Asked how she got herself in the movie industry, Yvonne said it was at the urge of her mother who saw that she had the talent to act. Yvonne further revealed that though her father is a Nigerian, he is married to two Ghanaian women, and they all live happily.

BEYONCE AND JAY Z TO VISIT GHANA

Power couple and international Music icons, Beyonce and Jay Z would possibly visit Ghana this year as part of Ghana’s “Year of Return” activities.

2019, dubbed the “Year of Return”, marks 400 years of the TransAtlantic Slave Trade and a lot of African Americans have taken it upon themselves to “return” to their roots in commemoration of the anniversary.

As part of this initiative, Boris Kodjoe led 40 other Black American Hollywood stars to the country a few weeks ago for tourism and philanthropic work.

Reports coming in from Emmanuel Kojo Mensah, the Marketing Manager of Royal Senchi Hotel, indicate that Beyoncé and Jay Z will be the next set of people to visit the country.

“ I am told that with the visit of Boris Kodjoe and the rest, people in the states are discussing the Royal Senchi Hotel because they have seen pictures videos and other images Boris and his guys took when they came to our facility.

Jay Z and Beyonce who saw and liked the pictures, I am told, are planning a visit to Ghana and for that matter the Royal Senchi Hotel. This year the Tourism Ministry says it is the Year Of Return and we are all up for it,” he said.

Boris Cudjoe and his friends from Hollywood resided at Royal Senchi when they came for their visit.

The ‘Year of Return”, earmarked by the Ghana Tourism Authority is aimed at inviting persons in the Diaspora to visit Ghana.

MARRIAGE HAS CHANGED ME – Bibi Bright

Until she remarried, actress Bibi Bright was not known for her patience. Very little things upset her and she could not accommodate anyone. But today, she tells Showbiz that marriage has made her very patient and she is happy about that.

“Little things used to upset me and I couldn’t live with anyone else apart from myself, but today, I am comfortable with anyone around me. Things that used to upset me no longer do,” she said.

According to her, she has realised that patience is everything and she is now mature because of that.

“I am now able to control myself and forget about little things that made me get mad before. I have been able to tolerate my husband no matter the highest provocation,” she said.

Bibi Bright says there is no situation she cannot handle now because she has developed a tough skin.

She loves children and she tells Showbiz she would love to have 10 children. “Although I have two kids, my plan is to make it 10 because my husband Akwasi Boateng and I love children. I want to surround myself with my children when I am old,” she revealed.

Known for movies such as Lost in His Glory, Promise Beyond, Spiritual Killer, My Home, Leave My Wife, Occult Girl and New Adabraka, Bibi Bright is very hopeful the movie industry will bounce back again.

She was recently almost defrauded by an ECG official who told her changing her prepared meter would cost her GH¢500. Now the angry actress, who is embarking on a “Say no to Corruption” campaign, is pleading with the government to look into matters like this.

This is what Bibi Bright posted on her Instagram page: “I campaigned for this government for change! And change is one thing that #ECGNEEDS!! Stop corruption at ECG! 

“The guy told me to do what I wanted and that it would not get anywhere! Obviously he is too comfortable with his ways of corruption! He knows for years that the corruption at ECG has no stop! Let’s rise up as a people as a generation and fight corruption! It must stop!!!!”

HOLLYWOOD ACTOR MICHAEL JAI WHITE ENSTOOLED CHIEF IN GHANA

Hollywood actor and martial artist, Michael Jai White, has been enstooled as chief in Akwamu in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

This was at a traditional ceremony held on Wednesday at Akwamufie, where the stool name Odupong­  literally meaning ‘a tree firmly rooted’  was conferred on him.

Michael, a versatile actor, is the first black to portray a major comic book superhero in a major motion picture, having starred as Al Simmons, the protagonist in the 1997 film ‘Spawn’.

As a black belt in eight different karate styles, he has been able to leverage his deep connection to martial arts and emerge as a multi-faceted talent that possesses comedic chops while being one of the most recognizable action movie actors around.

In Ghana, he is popular for his role in ‘Undisputed II: The Last Man Standing’. He has been in the West African country since Christmas as part of a tour programme dubbed ‘Full Circle Festival’ (FCF).

The FCF was established to honour the ancestry who died during the slave trade by celebrating African heritage and generational legacy.

This is chaired by the Office of His Excellency President Nana Akufo-Addo and presented by the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Business Development and the Office of Diaspora Affairs. The year 2019 marks the 400thanniversary of the start of the West African slave trade.

Between 1619 and 1860, 12 million Africans were forcefully loaded on ships and transported to the Americas. The new world brought them unimaginable pain, suffering, and death, far away from their families, their culture, their ancestors.

Hence the FCF was established to honour the ancestry.

The FCF team comprised a long list of some Hollywood actors, musicians, models and business executives. Among them are Anthony Anderson, Boris Kodjo, Michael Jai White, Gillian White, Nicole Ari Parker and Bozoma Saint John. The team has been touring Ghana since.

Photos of Michael’s enstoolment have been in the social media trends in Ghana since Wednesday. Other members of the team, including Boris and Bozoma, also got titles.
