I AM BROKE; I HAVE NOT BEEN PAID FOR MANY MONTHS – Asamoah Gyan Tells Court   

The skipper of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan has shocked the Accra Family Court hearing the case of marriage annulment between him and Gifty Gyan that he is walking around a “broke man” and has not been paid for some months now.

The court had ordered Asamoah Gyan to ensure he paid for the air ticket of his wife and all their three children traveling from the UK to Ghana for a DNA test to be conducted.

The court demanded that the children must be protected from the stigma of the ongoing court process for which reason it was suggested Asamoah Gyan booked a business or 1st class ticket for them and their mother as well as prepare an accommodation for them in Accra.

Asamoah Gyan, however, told the court he is broke and cannot afford a business or 1st class ticket because he has not been paid for some months.

This is after he told the court in August that he can only afford Ghc3000 a month for the upkeep of the 3 children and the wife who are based in the UK.

A source close to the wife has said Mrs Gyan doesn’t need her husband’s money and has since refused to go for it since August when he began paying in court.

On Asamoah’s claim to be broke to the extent that he cannot afford to pay the business class ticket for the children as it will include their mother, the court warned against delay tactics, refusing to agree with him.

The court therefore ordered him to file his full bank account details with the court in two weeks.

The Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan had earlier in 2016 accused one Sarah Kwablah with whom he had sex of trying to extort money from him.

Speaking about his sexual encounter with the girl, Gyan said he went to Sarah Kwabla’s house at Weija near the West Hills Mall in “his dirty training kits” and had sex, but because the family believes he is well to do, they want to make money out of him.

He said Sarah had joined him at the training grounds at SCC and after training, he introduced her to his colleagues as a friend.

Since Sarah’s house, located behind the West Hills Mall at Weija was not far away from the training grounds, Gyan said they went to her house in his car, whilst he was still wearing his dirty training kits.

They both enjoyed the lovemaking, he recounted but Sarah twisted the story and later accused him of rape. “We had a good time,” Gyan said.

He said Sarah and her family wanted to extort money from him and that was why they accused him of rape.

He said, if he had raped her, she wouldn’t have had the strength to walk him out and open her house gate for him to drive his car out.

Recounting how they met, Gyan said they met through social media and so they exchanged many text messages and spoke on phone a number of times

Asamoah Gyan is regarded as one of the highest paid footballers in Ghana. Shanghai SIPG of the Chinese Super league thrust Asamoah Gyan into the list of the highest paid players on the globe. He turned out to be the highest paid players in Ghana making a whopping £ 22700 a week. Currently, he emerges top on the list of the richest footballers in Ghana.

Asamoah Gyan net worth is estimated at $23 Million by Yen Ghana. Most of this net worth is from his involvement in businesses outside the pitch. He owns McCarthy Hill House, a mansion worth $3 Million and drives among many others, Phantom car which is manufactured by Roll Royce valued at £400,000. Asamoah Gyan owned a fleet of cars among them Mercedes Benz and Bugatti.

His transfer to Sunderland saw him bag a deal worth $ 13 Million. In his current club in Turkey, the salary of the Ghana captain is unknown but is believed to take home about £ 89,000 a week.

KEVIN HART CONFIRMED TO HOST 2019 OSCARS

Comedian and Hollywood star Kevin Hart has been confirmed to host world’s ultimate movie awards, the Academy Awards ceremony for the first time.

Kevin Host is officially set to host the 91st Academy Awards ceremony. “I will be sure to make this years Oscars a special one,” the comedian wrote in an Instagram post, adding, “now it’s time to rise to the occasion.”

The star is emceeing the event for the first time. First-time producers Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss will oversee the show, with Gigliotti serving as producer and Weiss on hand as co-producer and director.

Earlier on Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has held talks with the comedian about hosting the February ceremony. “I appreciate @TheAcademy for the opportunity,” wrote Hart in his post.

Hart added, “For years I have been asked if I would ever Host the Oscars and my answer was always the same…I said that it would be the opportunity of a lifetime for me as a comedian and that it will happen when it’s suppose to.” 

The last two Oscar shows were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. But each year ratings declined, with a record-low 26.5 million viewers tuning in for last March’s broadcast, which adds to the pressure the new team will face in mounting the kudocast.

The Academy, which has promised that the show won’t run over three hours, has already announced one change — not all the awards in the 24 Oscar categories will be revealed live. Instead, six to eight categories will be announced before the audience at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood during commercial breaks, and edited excerpts from the acceptances will be aired later in the broadcast.

In August, the Academy’s board also recommended the creation of a new award, a so-called “popular” Oscar, that it said would recognize “outstanding achievement in popular film,” ensuring that some of the biggest box office successes of the year have a prominent place at the awards. But that idea met with so much resistance that the Academy shelved it a month later.

Hart previously hosted the MTV Movie Awards along with his Central Intelligence co-star Dwayne Johnson. He has publicly spoken about wanting to host the Oscars since at least 2015, when he told the morning show Live With Kelly and Michael (now Live With Kelly and Ryan) that he was actively campaigning to get the role. “That would be a major accomplishment. With what I’ve done and the progress I’ve made in my career, that’s definitely the next major step, I feel, for a comedian,” Hart said to the hosts at the time.

The Oscars will air live on Sunday, February, 24,2019 on ABC.

“This is the only time I will Address this situation and I won’t go into detail! My dear @queenafiaschwarzenegger , regardless of everything that has transpired between me and you, I love you as a strong woman that doesn’t conform to society and men! Moreso because I have seen you stand up to men that want to belittle and abuse women! I was abused by a man who was in denial that I left him because I found out that he was married and I refused to continue the relationship we were in, after his wife called me to narrate everything to me. When the man that sent you the picture of my brutally beaten face, my wish was that you ask him What kind of man take joy and pleasure for doing such a heinous act and then send to people? Why does he want me to take the case out of court by reaching out to soo many respectable people? Why is he offering me things to end this matter in court? I will let the laws of the country take care of the rest!! I know there are lots of victims like me being abused emotionally and physically every single day but are scared to speak out just because of what society will say. There’s this negative stigma to people in the entertainment industry especially women. We are perceived to be evil and money hungry but deep down lots of us have hearts of gold. There are thousands of ladies being abused daily. This is a PROBLEM! I’m not ashamed of this picture at all. This picture is a reflection of our world today and the plight women go through every day. I went through this 4 years ago and by the Lords grace, look at me now. I have favor with the Lord and living my best life!!!”.

The Accra Court where proceedings of marriage annulment are ongoing between Asamoah Gyan and his wife of 5 years and fiancée of 11 years has ordered skipper of the Black Stars, and his lawyers to go back and amend the name of his wife on his application for annulment of the marriage.

This was occasioned by the fact that Asamoah Gyan referred to his wife as ‘Gifty Oware’ (her maiden name) instead of ‘Gifty Gyan’, which the court found untenable, based on an argument submitted by Gifty Gyan’s lawyers who found it insulting for the couples more than 15 years stay together.

According to reports, the Kayserispor striker after filing for divorce in August, 2018 is currently making preparation to marry an Accra-based business woman, Nina Atalah once his marriage to Gifty is annulled by the court.

Nina Atalah who is an ex wife of jailed Jamaican act Buju Banton and has allegedly dated Stephen Appiah, John Dumelo, Ibrahim Mahama, among a host of high profile personalities was recently introduced as ‘wife’ of Asamoah Gyan at public appearances by the soccer superstar.

NIGERIANS ARE SHARPER THAN GHANAIANS – RudeBoy of P-Square

A controversial video that exposes RudeBoy, one half of the now-defunct successful Nigerian Pop Music group P-Square, lambasting Ghanaian musicians for their relatively low IQ has set tongues wagging from Ghanaian music circles almost two months after it was recorded.

The video shows RudeBoy in the studios of WGHC Radio in Chicago – USA, as he was presumably on the promotion of his solo project, and doing very well with the questions from the host until he was asked to share his opinion on the cold reception of two Ghanaian Artistes of the Year- Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale- by Nigerian music fans, days prior to his interview.

The Nigerian star did not hold back his assessments of Ghanaian music stars at all. The multi-talented singer downplayed the popularity and relevance of the Zylofon Music signees who have won several local and international awards.

In Ghana, reggae/dancehall rivals Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale are considered musical immortals with their massive fanbase, but according to Rudeboy, they have zero relevance where he comes from.

The Nigerian superstar reserved special praise for Sarkodie and called him the best Ghanaian artiste but said that all the others were experiencing irrelevance outside Ghana because Ghanaian artistes and music often follow a trend and stagnates with it while Nigerian music creates a trend, recycles the best from other industries and continues to add value to newer innovations.

“Nigerians we’re too sharp…most of the sounds you’re talking about they come from you guys [Ghanaians], if you’re not sharp enough Niger we’re sharper.”

“They are just doing the same thing without developing…they focus on just one thing and stay there. Everyone [in ghana] does the same thing, [but nigerians] we develop something and before you catch up, we are gone…”
