PRODUCERS & SONGWRITERS CHASE REGGIE N BOLLIE

Reggie N Bollie 2After placing second at the 2015 X Factor music reality show, a number of songwriters and producers have expressed interest in working with Reggie N Bollie, Reggie has said.

Speaking on Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra on Monday, a highly elated Reggie was full of praises to God and their fans for the support given them.

He revealed the group will hit the studios after various meetings outlined for them.

“Already, there are songwriters and producers who are talking to management to work with us. It’s beautiful. I think after the few meetings we have, at most in a week’s time, we will be in the studio because there is a lot going on behind the scenes and we give thanks to God,” he said.

On whether they have plans of collaborating with some great foreign acts, Reggie said, “anything can happen. We wouldn’t want to talk more. We want to put it into action so people will see for themselves.”

Asked if they had received any congratulatory message from the government, Reggie replied in the negative but was quick to add it was not an issue. He believes Ghanaian leaders have done a lot by supporting them in diverse ways.

“We haven’t received any message from the government but I don’t think it’s compulsory for them to. Honourable Dzifa Gomashie [Deputy Minister of Culture, Tourism and Creative Arts] has really been supportive. She promoted what we were doing. Nana Addo and his wife called us two weeks ago or so to congratulate us and wished us all the best. It’s been great,” he stated.

17-year-old Louisa Johnson was crowned winner at the 2015 X Factor UK over Ghanaian hyperactive pair Reggie N Bollie on Sunday.

LYDIA FORSON BLASTS FAN FOR TALKING ABOUT HER WEIGHT

Lydia Forson
Lydia Forson

An unruly fan of Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has forced her to pour her heart out on how she really feels about people are just interested in disrespecting her personality and whatever she does.

The “Scorned” actress on Monday morning took to her Facebook page to chronicle an unpleasant encounter with a fan at a movie theater.

According to Lydia, the fan walked up to her and despite behaving in an overly familiar way, she tried being civil to him…until he passed a derogatory comment about her weight.

Read Lydia Forson’s experience and rant on Facebook below:

“When I say some people have no boundaries in this country they think I’m exaggerating.

But the truth is a lot of people don’t respect boundaries. If you’re polite or allow people into your space they automatically try to get overly familiar with you , and think it’s ok to speak out of turn.

Last night I went to watch a movie at the mall, and this guy behind the counter screamed my name with authority. You would think we were friends or he was my dad. Usually I don’t mind people calling me in public, it’s always nice to wave and chat with fans when they recognize you. But I think we can all agree that no one like to have their name called like they owe a person.

Anyway so this guy was already irritating me by his attitude but I played it cool.

I’m not a huge fan of fizzy drinks ie sodas etc. And when I do have it I like the coke zero, light or any of the low sugar ones. So I complained to the attendant that I hadn’t seen any of those drinks in a while.

He pointed at sobolo, which I do like and also showed me another version with lemon in it. I love lemonade so I immediately asked for a bottle. From no where this other guy says he’s glad I took the lemon cuz with my size I need it.

Cue “someone’s going to die music” 🎶🎶

Anyway I put on my “you’re gonna have it face ” and asked what made him think he had the right to make that comment?

Clearly he didn’t see what he had done was wrong. So I educated him on boundaries and how he had no right to even be overly friendly with me let alone comment on my size, health or any part of my body.

Again he clearly wasn’t getting it, but see I have a rule, that if someone disrespects you or says something to you that you find offensive, deal with it immediately or you will go home and be thinking about how you could have or would have.

I will check you there and then!!

So in that spirit I asked him how he would feel if I said “you look like you will have a weak di**k, and I think you should drink some joy daddy”.

The look on his face showed my point had sunk in, and if not had made him feel as disrespected as he tried to make me feel.

I knew as I walked away he would probably insult me or cuss me out, but I don’t care much. I was glad to be going to bed with a smile on my face and not feeling put down by anyone.

They will attempt to say I’m rude or that I shouldn’t have reacted at all, but I think a lot of people stupidly think water flows through my veins and not blood. If you’re bold enough to come at me, be bold enough to receive whatever I give you.

If you measure me by a moral compass that you don’t use then you’re brain dead.

Always remember this, having boundaries doesn’t mean you don’t have a right to an opinion, but that you respect that you don’t have the right to impose it on anyone.

*meanwhile Mr. Man what’s it to you kraaa about my size eh? I wasn’t built for you, and the people I was made for don’t have a problem so why should you?

On this note I wish everyone a joy daddy day.. ‪#‎peaceout”
