HOW DARE YOU DARE ME – Abeiku Santana To Nana Aba Anamoah

Two media personalities are going at each other days after the American rapper, Cardi B never showed up for a ‘Meet and Greet’ session with Ghanaian celebrities.

Broadcaster Abeiku Santana has again taken a swipe at journalist Nana Aba Anamoah for giving him an ultimatum to prove that she [Nana Aba] spoke ill about Despite Media for inviting Big Brother Naija Housemate Tacha to Ghana.

According to the host of ‘Ekwanso Dwoodwoo’ on Okay FM, after giving the ‘State of Affairs’ host evidence that she had had a Twitter conversation with her protégée Serwa Amihere about Big Brother Naija and events in the Big Brother Naija House, she [Nana Aba] cannot deny on Twitter that she does not know Tacha.

Abeiku Santana, who calls himself Mr Tourism before signing off his late afternoon show on Okay FM Wednesday, December 11, stated that Nana Aba Anamoah had always been vociferous about things happening in Ghana, that is, from politics through to social issues and entertainment, so he was surprised when she [Nana Aba] as the ‘girl’s prefect’ could not comment about things that happened at the Cardi B live in Ghana concert, where the event organizers disrespected some Ghanaian celebrities.

He said, “Nana Aba Anamoah you say you’re Sarkodie’s PR and also a fan of Shatta Wale; they have been disrespected by Nigerians who organised the Cardi B event in Ghana… and as girl’s perfect, you couldn’t speak, but you’re quick to speak your mind on politics and other social issues”.

“…After telling you to come and address these issues you give me an ultimatum that I should come and remove my mouth; how dare you, how dare you dare me, how dare you dare me, can you dare me, can you dare me; this should be your last warning. I’ve been advised so don’t dare me,” angry Abeiku Santana burst out in the studio.

He explained further that the Cardi B show was organised by Nigerians who used Ghanaians as the front liners and yet disrespected big artistes like Sarkodie and Shatta Wale (who used a helicopter to go and do his soundcheck) from not performing at the show which came off last Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

“I’VE NEVER HAD A BROKEN HEART IN MY LIFE”- Nana Aba Anamoah

Outspoken Broadcast Journalist, Nana Aba Anamoah said she no man has ever broken her heart before.

The popular Television News Anchor, has disclosed that she’s never experienced extreme grief after ending her romantic relationships with her any of former boyfriends.

The 2017 Radio and Television award-winning personality revealed that after her former boyfriend announced their break up, she never felt bad about it, she drove to Frankies to buy ice cream and got over the break up the following day.

“There is a saying that, a heart that has never been broken is a heart that has never been loved but for me personally I’ve never had a broken heart in my life.”

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!”

NANA ABA ANAMOAH, JOSELYN DUMAS CANNOT MARRY – Counselor Lutterodt

Controversial self-styled marriage counselor Rev. George Lutterodt has said popular TV presenter Nana Aba Anamoah and actress Joselyn Dumas cannot get married.

The famous counselor continued that, Kwabena Kwabena’s current relationship will never end up in marriage and Gifty Osei marriage will also not stand because marriages of gospel musicians with pastors or men of God tend to end in divorce.

“Nana Aba Anamoah cannot get married. Likewise, Joselyn Dumas and Kwabena Kwabena’s current relationship will also not end well,” he said.

The controversial pastor said this in a video released by radio celebrity Abeiku Santana on his Instagram page.
