WENDY SHAY DENIES ALLEGED SEXUAL AFFAIR WITH BULLET

Rufftown Records’ new signee, Wendy Shay has refuted speculations that she may be sexually involved with manager Bullet.

Rumour has it that Bullet, CEO of Rufftown records engages in sexually related activities with his female signees, including the late Ebony Reigns, however, the newest act on the record label, Wendy, has debunked such rumours.

Earlier this week, a video circulated online which raised eyebrows on social as to the kind of relationship between the two.

In the video, Bullet and Wendy were captured all over each other and walking hand in hand and some fans believe that they are going too far than just a musician and manager.

However, according to the “Uber Driver” hitmaker, she considers Bullet as a father hence, she can’t have sexual relations with him.

Wendy claims the relationship between herself and Bullet is strictly platonic and the mere thought of taking it to the next level has never crossed her mind.

In an interview, the singer emphatically stated: “Oh naa, not at all. Bullet is my daddy. I have never even thought of anything like that”

The budding talent says she hopes to become an internationally recognized musician and strongly believes Bullet is capable of helping her gain that status.

Supporting her submissions, Bullet himself stated that he allows a free and cordial relationship with his signees to enhance a comfortable work environment, however, Ghanaians have misunderstood his intentions.

“I have a cool relationship with my talents. Music has to do with emotions, so I always want to connect with them on that level in order to bring out the best in them”, he said.

LET’S KEEP BAD THINGS IN THE CHURCH FROM PUBLIC EYE – Majid Michel

Actor Majid Michel has asked Christians to desist from making public the various negative events in their various churches.

According to him, the world is currently fighting the church and therefore feeding the world with such information will offer it the opportunity to destroy the church.

Majid Michel who made this known through a post on Instagram said “Guilty of calling out Pastors and Christian leaders in general about things we have observed and as much as what we say or mean to say may come from a good heart, i do not believe it is our place to say such things and make such statements, especially, publicly”.

“The world is already doing as much as it can to fight the body of Christ and it does us no good supplying them with the ammunition to wage a fiercer battle against us. Are they pastors that do the wrong things and take advantage of unsuspecting and loyal members? Yes! But how does it help our cause to turn on the light on those negatives in our family? When we cast a shadow over our family, it affects everyone in the family. When we announce the negatives they overshadow the positives because as u know, the world celebrates the negatives and only evil makes the news,” the actor said in a post on Instagram.

He noted that as Christians, the best the could be done is to pray for and cherish each other.

“We’re Christians! children of love and we’re called to change the world and help each other through love, faith and humility. Let us pray for one another rather than tear at each other. let us teach those close to us to be humble, knowing that we ourselves stand only by His grace. Let us teach each other to be wise and beware of dogs in the house but to always remember that the family comes first and whatsoever we say or do, let us do as unto the Lord. let us cherish the Name by which the whole family is named and protect it. “it is better to light a candle than to curse darkness”. Let us pray for one another not criticize each other.”

GHANAIAN ACTRESS REVEALS THAT SHE BLEACHED HER SKIN TO FIT IN NOLLYWOOD

Nigerian-based Ghanaian actress, Ella Mensah has attributed her decision to tone her skin to her desire to gain success in the movie industry especially in Nollywood

According to her, movie producers and directors prefer giving roles to light-skinned actresses at the detriment of talented dark skinned actresses.

’If you are a dark-skinned person, your talent alone is not going to push you up because a producer once told me that I have the height, the body and that I am pretty, but that the tone of my skin was dark and that if they put light on it, it doesn’t look attractive’’ she explained in an interview with Sammy Flexx on Zylofon Fm in Accra.

She noted that being fair is her decision and that is to enable her to gain acceptability in the movie industry and to allow her to fit in adding ’I thought about it and it is my own skin and thank God I am not going to hurt or kill anybody. So I did it because I love it and also partly because of my job’’ she opined.

Falling short of mentioning how much she spends on bleaching every month, the actress revealed that she gets her bleaching tablets from the United States of America.

Ella Mensah who describes herself as hugely successful in her acting carrier in Nigeria noted that dark-skinned actress have the huge task of going through very tough times and usually have to go the extra mile in order to succeed and gain acceptance

‘’My decision to tone came in when I decided to act fully in Nigeria because I didn’t want a situation whereby in my own country (Ghana) I didn’t get all the opportunities I needed, I tried, I pushed hard and there are so many people I fell on to help me make it in Ghana but they refused. Today they are nowhere near me and that is karma’’ she argued to justify why she is bleaching.

I DON’T CARE ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ME ANYMORE – Princess Shyngle

Curvaceous Ghana-based Gambian actress, Princess Shyngle, always makes news because of her body but last two weeks, she was at the receiving end of some serious trolling after pictures of her on a movie set surfaced.

From the pictures, it seemed her waist had shrunk even more and many social media users just had to comment with some lambasting her.

Others made fun of her comparing her shape to that of an hour glass and ‘tapoli’, a wooden grinder.

While many celebrities do not take kindly to trolling, Princess Shyngle remains unperturbed.

When Showbiz caught up with her at the Golden Tulip Hotel last Friday, where she attended the AU Arts Festival in honour of former President, John Agyekum Kufuor, she said she was not affected by the backlash and urged people to keep talking.

“Sweet, I do not care ohh, I am not bothered at all. For those talking, they can continue talking, it is good for me, it is making news and making me relevant so I am okay with it.

You just look at me; do I look like I am bothered or uncomfortable?

“Honestly, I do not even go online to read these things, but I think it is good.

I just got back to town and came to support the Former President, John Kufour.

If this trolling happened about two years ago, I would have had issues with it and feel bad but now, I have grown past that, I have a dead goat syndrome now, “she said.

She also debunked rumours that she had removed her intestines to get a flat stomach and smaller waist.

“They said I have taken my intestines out but look, I am going to eat so how can someone with no intestines eat? she asked.

In her bid to prove that her small waist is due to the constant use of waist trainers among others, she asked this reporter to take a closer look.

“See, what I have on is my waist trainer and that is what I use, coupled with constant exercise and eating well.

The bottom line is that, I am not perturbed.The people talking can continue talking.”
Princess was born in the Gambia and says she is a descendant from all over Africa.

“My paternal grandparents are from Ghana and Sierra Leone respectively while my maternal grandparents are from Nigeria and Mali.”

The actress, who has featured in movies like Why Should I Get Married, The 30-Year-Old Virgin and The Mysterious Wedding Planner, majored in IT, Business and Marketing from the Gambian Business College and worked with beverage giant, Coca-Cola.

She currently has a talk show on YouTube, Hot Talk With Princess Shyngle where she shares with her fans relationship tips among others.
