VICTORIA LEBENE SLAMS #FEARKILLSDREAMS CAMPAIGN

Actress/Model, Victoria Lebene has slammed an on going social media campaign on fear #FearKillsDreams.

The campaign which seeks to bring to the fore how people live their lives in the shadow of their fears and how they can face their fear enable them accomplish their full potential, features some of Ghana’s leading known personalities such as Nana Aba Anamoah, Kofi Okyere Darko, Brommon, Jon Germain, Samini, Edem, Kemini Amanor and Fiifi Coleman speaking to their individual definitions of fear and what it does to us.

However, Victoria Lebene seem to disagree with the initiators of the #FearKillsDreams because she believes it is people who kill dreams and not fear as the campaign seek to project.

She expressed her opinion about the on going fear campaign via her Instagram.

Read her post unedited below:

“Dedicating this article to some of the young talents in the Creative arts industry and in Ghana as a whole. 

I stand against the notion that fear kills dreams. Yes it’s true that fear is the unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger. Unfortunately, negative thoughts and self-doubt breeds negativity. Inferiority complex, low self-esteem, lack of confidence and a lot more. All these are contributing factors to fear but the question is where are all these being derived from?

 There are tons of women out there who are one way or the other frustrated, they have poured out energies to no good, they’ve tried seeking platforms where they could execute their talents and aspirations but hardly do they get the chance. Fraustration out of these canker of #SexForJobs #SexForGrades #SexForRoles #SexforEverything. Some authorities that would want sex while they seek platforms to exhibit talents or jobs to better themselves.

 I’ve had series of messages through my media platforms of young ladies and their encounter with men asking for help to bring forth their modeling or acting career and some who are even ready to work with me as helps in my house. Look at some young ladies going all out in bikini and semi nude shoots, going out for auditions, meeting with agency casting calls, sleeping in music studios and so forth. Do you ever think they are fearful? Do you think if they were that scared, afraid, they would ever dare to? It’s simply because they do not have the right platforms to exhibit, practice and execute their thoughts and capabilities.

I think it’s high time we embraced talents from all angles, appreciate young talents and crafts, accept people the way they are and help in bettering them even if they have flaws and stop focusing on fear, fear has noting to do with dreams unless there is no hope to live that Dream. 

I am standing in for the youth in this country that have somehow tried their best to pursue their dreams and had no opportunity even when they tried. Let’s kill the causes of all dream killers and rather advocate for #dreamkillsfear It is people that kill dreams, not ‘ fear ‘Young generations need genuine help without no strings attached!”

I HAVE NEVER CHEATED ON MY WIFE – Rapper Edem Insists

The lyrics in Dedication, the latest single by Edem, frowns on cheating in marriage and relationships and that has raised the issue of whether he has ever cheated on his wife.

The Rapper says no. According to him, he had never thought of it though he had faced temptation at certain times.

“I have never thought of cheating on my wife and I have never done that. I do get the temptation but I am so focused on my wife and career that I don’t even take note of it,” he said to Showbiz.

On how he handles temptations, he noted: “The word is self-control. I just have that so I make a conscious effort not to cheat no matter how tempting the offer is.

“Self-control deals with ability to keep one’s emotions and desires in check, especially in difficult situations. For me, that is what every man must strive to achieve,” he added.

“Marriage is not a joke but it is enjoyable when the two decide to cherish each other, communicate and be transparent. It is the most wonderful experience any human could go through.”

Talking about how marriage had treated him so far, Edem said: “It’s been an amazing journey. My wife understands my job and she always tries to live a low key life. She is very supportive of my career and I love, respect and adore her very much.”

Born Denning Edem Hotor, Edem first came to attention as Ayigbe Edem, with his successful 2009 debut collection, Volta Regime. He followed it up with Mass Production in 2011. His third album was Books and Rhymes.

Edem’s style is a fusion of hip-hop, dancehall, reggae and highlife. His hit songs have included Ghetto Arise, Heyba, Bougez, Bra Fremi Fremi, Nyedzilo, Kpordawoe and Koene.

His upcoming album is TAA (The African Answer).
