Yes, the ‘silent rivalry’ between Ghana’s most decorated movie makers, Leila Djansi and Shirley Frimpong-Manso received an interesting twist during Thursday night’s premiere of Shirley’s latest production, ‘Love or Something Like That’.  It appears the battle lines have been drawn if I am not reading too much meaning...

By the close of 2013 I had every reason to look forward to 2014, as my year of takeoff.  Traffic on my blog had reached an all-time high and I even had to move to an expensive dedicated server to host my blog. In 2013 I became an ambassador for the Malta Guinness ‘Africa Rising’ campaign, my first ever commercial campaign since ‘Ameyaw Debrah’ became...

I am sure most of you were confused, when after Theresa Onnen told the Graphic Showbiz that she was pregnant for Big Brother Africa’s Elkem Kumordzie and later when on some platform to deny the story.  Well, records don’t lie, I have scooped up the audio for the interview conducted by Graphic Showbiz and to make it even more interesting,  there’s  a second recording in which she threatens to expose Elikem if she is pushed. Hmm is this publicity gone wrong or a love affair gone wrong? Watch the Video below and...

I have read and heard several arguments on the New Artist of the year nominations for the 2014 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. Many pundits say that Kumi Guitar is not a new artist because he has been around and was previously known with another name. Others have said that Akwaboah is not a new artist because as a musician he has even written songs which have won...

Yes, my timelines have been filled with questions like ‘who is Kumi Guitar’ and ‘what song did he sing’ since the nominations for the 2014 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards were announced last Saturday, and I expressed my joy at Kumi Guitar’s nominations.

There are many great artists such as Wizkid, Sarkodie and E.L putting out some great music, to name a few. However there is still a lot of very bad music flooding the Ghana music industry that every Ghanaian music blogs and sites don’t hesitate to support regardless of how bad it sounds. It is okay to be “inspired by” foreign artists but Musicians need  to stop copying everything they hear from America. A few songs on this list are exceptionally disgraceful but one thing every song on this list has in common is the  LACK...

  Check out these photos from the premiere of Shirley Frimpong Manso’s latest movie, ‘Devil In The Details’.  The cast present at the screening included Adjetey Anang, Ama Ampofo and Mawuli Gavor. I would describe the movie as a confusing romantic comedy mainly because of how the conflicts created in the plot were resolved. Shirley chose...

The past week was certainly an interesting one for me. While I battled with my server  to stabilize the site so you could enjoy the usual posts, I received some misplaced  flack on twitter earlier in the week and then on Saturday for two separate incidents. The first incident was about an article I culled from peacefmonline for my general news portal nowghana.com.  The story was about Elikem Kumordzi making an appearance in court regarding the Odartey Lamptey and wife scandal. Elikem denied the report on twitter saying he was never...

After the launch of the third studio album from Sarkodie, ‘Sarkology’, I have recieved messages from many people across the world who wanted to know how to grab a copy of the album or my opinion about the album.

Often I hear media discussions on the subject of celebrities and if even we have celebrities in Ghana. I have been tagged along in several social media discussions and I think it is about time I gave my candid opinion on the subject. Of course, as someone who describes myself as a celebrity blogger, how I can say I blog about celebrities if I didn’t think...

It appears that Ghana will soon have an addition to its growing stock of female film makers, which already include the likes of Leila Djansi and Shirley Frimpong-Manso. Evelyn Robinson hails from Osu but spent most of her youthful years in the United Kingdom.

2013 was surely a good year for me personally; I won three awards for my work including the Ghana Social Media Awards, Waves International Youth Achievement Award, and the City People Entertainment Award in Nigeria. I also chalked a Malta Guinness Ambassador deal for the Africa Rising Campaign which I hope would be the beginning of many to come. On the entertainment...
