“I AM STABLE AND WELL” – Princess Shyngle Speaks After Suicide Attempt

Actress Princess Shyngle has finally spoken after she reportedly attempted taking her own life in Nigeria.

In a brief chat with Nkonkonsa.com, Princess Shyngle who is currently recovering said she is stable now but she was not in the right frame of mind to give details of why she attempted to take her own life.

“I’m stable and well. I have just been held here for a few more days and I have been put on suicide watch. I am okay now” , she told Nkonkonsa.com.

The “Virgin at 30” actress who is currently in Nigeria tried to take her life on Tuesday morning, December 11, 2018 when she took an over dose of a drug and a substance suspected to be bleach.

She is currently on admission at a hospital in Nigeria and she said to be responding to treatment. According to Princess Shyngle’s female friend who spoke on condition of anonymity, Princess reached out to her few days ago and made known her intentions to take her life after which she tried to talk her out it but it seems she cold not convince her well enough.

“She came to me a few days ago and I spoke to her, she is a very good friend of mine and we talk a lot, I mean when I need help, she is there for me so she reached out to me and I spoke to her not to do it but it looks like I was not able to persuade her to delete the suicidal thoughts.

“Honestly, I am really sad about what has happened. Princess Shyngle is one talented actress with a beautiful heart and losing her would have been a great loss to our country and industry” the source said.

The source continued, “what people do not know is that, we go through a lot and it is not easy being in the media space and you cannot say, you will stay away from social media too, you need it to keep your brand up but when we post things, the insults, name calling etc are just too much.

“Internet trolling is not a good thing. It can very depressing and one has to develop a thick skin to handle it. For my friend, Princess Shyngle, maybe she was grappling with other things that pushed her to want to take her life but thing I knew that got her so much was trolling on the internet.”

Princess Shyngle has in the past opened up about being suicidal indicating that whenever she is faced with disappointments, the first thought that comes to mind is to end her life

“I cannot take disappointments. When I want something or I am looking for something and things do not work out well, the next thought that comes to mind is to commit suicide,” she stated in an interview with Graphic Showbiz newspaper in August 2017.

She also revealed that she’s been battling with these thoughts since she was 18 years old and what triggered it was a near death experience that her father experienced.

‘’It started when I was about 18 years or so. I almost lost my dad through a fire outbreak and just the thought alone made me want to kill myself.

“I couldn’t see myself living my life without him and thought the best thing was to go with him,” she told Graphic Showbiz.

“PEOPLE THINK I AM DUMB BUT I AM NOT” – Moesha Buduong

Although all seems to be calm on the movie front and the spirit of togetherness has become even stronger, once in a while, something happens to stir the waters, the most recent feud being what erupted between Moesha Buduong and Efia Odo.

While the details are not fully clear, Moesha did not take kindly to what she said were lies peddled by Efia Odo against her and responded on Instagram in a post that sought to ‘expose’ the latter’s secret, and a lot of nasty things were written.

For Moesha, what has transpired, not only with her but over the years, can be attributed to too much disrespect in the movie industry.

According to her, when you don’t show off what you have, people take it that there’s nothing happening in your life so your colleagues disrespect you.

“The disrespect is just too much. People disrespect me for no reason. In the movie industry, it is there; the fact that you don’t show off your achievements makes others think that they are better than you and can throw ‘shade’ the least chance they get.

“The truth is that I have a lot of things to my name. These fights and bickering are not healthy for us. The industry is small and instead of us loving one another, encouraging and being there for one another, we gossip, disrespect and laugh at other’s misfortune,” she told Showbiz.

Was this the reason why she showed off her five-bedroom apartment, located at Adjiringanor, one of the expensive suburbs in Accra, on social media some days ago?

According to the Akwaaba actress, it was. “I showed that building so that people and my colleagues will know that I am working and they should not believe any news peddled on social media.

“I do not do open up about my business and the fact that I do not put pictures up does not mean I am not smart or intelligent. They think I am dumb but I am not.

“I have lots of investments and I’m doing great things for myself. I know where I come from. It is a humble beginning and I know where I am going. So far, God has been faithful,” she said.

On whether she was building the house with her own money, Moesha laughed and said, “I do not want to go into details but yes, it is.”

For Moesha, her way of dealing with the disrespect she has endured is to just be silent. “I keep quiet. I usually do not talk or confront them because people will always talk, no matter what you do.

“For me, the most vital thing is that I am living my best life and I am happy where I am,” she stated.

Speaking on what really ensued between her and Efia Odo, she said: “I do not really want to dwell on it. I would rather channel my energy into the various projects I have under my sleeves but I will say she disrespected me.”

Moesha had a word for her colleagues: “Love is all we need, and there is no point in painting one black to look or feel good. No one will come from elsewhere and do it for us; we have to and must do it ourselves.

“No matter what it is, let us respect everyone’s hustle; it doesn’t hurt to do that.”

ACTRESS PRINCESS SHYNGLE ATTEMPTS SUICIDE IN NIGERIA

Ghana-based Gambian actress Princess Shyngle has reportedly been hospitalised after an alleged suicide attempt in Lagos.

According to sources from Nigeria, the voluptuous actress was rescued by a neighbour who rushed her to Vedic Life care Hospital in Lekki after discovering that she took an overdose of a medication and drank bleach.

The 27-year-old actress is said to have been sent to the emergency room. She is reportedly responding to treatment. It is unclear what might have compelled the actress to attempt to take her own life but the actress has in the past opened up about being suicidal indicating that whenever she is faced with disappointments, the first thought that comes to mind is to end her own life

“I cannot take disappointments. When I want something or I am looking for something and things do not work out well, the next thought that comes to mind is to commit suicide,” she stated in an interview with a Ghanaian-based newspaper in August 2017.

She also revealed that she’s been battling with these thoughts since she was eighteen years old and what triggered it was a near death experience that her father experienced.

MEN CANNOT HAVE SEX WITH THEIR WIVES DUE TO CURRENT ECONOMIC HARDSHIPS – Kwaku Manu

Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu has stated that due to the economic hardships in Ghana currently, many married men are even afraid to sleep with their wives.

The comic actor added that because many men are afraid of the cost they will have to bare to bail their wives from the hospital, they have decided to live in fear of engaging in sexual intercourse with their spouses.

The ‘Kwaku Manu Educational Complex’ owner used the examples of the cases he witnessed when he visited the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital with his ‘mom’, Prophetess Vida Osei Mensah on December 5, 2018, to make his point.

He disclosed that a lady told them that her husband left her in the hospital because he expected her to give birth to only one child but instead the lady gave birth to twins.

Also, another man told them that if Prophetess Vida Osei Mensah had not selected his wife as a part of the 21 people she generously helped to go back home to the families, he would have committed suicide.

Kwaku Manu, therefore, stated that the cases of these people and the many others who are out there facing many difficulties financial are the reasons why he believes men are afraid to have sex with the wives now.

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.

Benedicta Gafah in the post wrote to address Afia Schwarzenegger wrote:

“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!!!”.
