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!”

JON GERMAIN EXPLAINS WHY HE DID THREESOME

Jon GermainNo one gave him a dog’s chance when he announced in 2010 that he was pursuing a career in music after doing radio and TV for over a decade.

But Jon Saint Germain, affectionately called the Supremo, kept his word when he released his maiden album, This Is Who I Am.

Some songs on the album especially In My Head and Love Zone, were quite popular and earned him recognition in music circles. He later followed it up with his second album, Enigma which also chalked success.

However, Jon Germain has been quiet on the music scene for some time now but the good news is that, the Supremo is back into the game and poised to soar even higher on the music ladder. He has just released a new single titled, Threesome featuring EL and Dee Money.

Speaking with Showbiz, Jon narrated how his new song came about and what inspired it.

“While growing up, one of the songs I heard that inspired me was the musical genius, Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing. As a song writer, I always wanted to record a song about the things men wish for. This refers to a case when your girlfriend has a very pretty friend and you wish you had them both. That’s the story of my new single, Threesome”, he said.

On what went into composing Threesome produced by Edem The Wiz and mastered by Ubeatz, he said recording the song was quick since he hadn’t planned for it.

“It was by accident. I was in the studio recording a different song when the verse for Threesomestarted ringing in my head. So I told my producer that we should stop working on the old song and create this new piece. He was surprised but he agreed and within minutes, I sang it and we created Threesome, he narrated.

When asked how the song is faring since it got released few weeks ago, he replied, “I’m very impressed with how the song has been received. First few days and already, there are so many tweets about it. Everyday, I see many tweets from radio stations in Ghana, UK  playing it and giving positive reviews. It’s been awesome,” he stated.
