October 1st, 2008 saw the birth of GhanaCelebrities.Com which means GC will be 2 years old in just about a week time. It is on this day that the first article was published on GC.

Prior to this day, I remember sitting on the phone with my partner in crime ( Ebenezer Anangfio) for almost 2 hours  talking about the concept of  starting a celebrity pop culture website in Ghana to provide daily  Ghanaian celebrity news, gossips, interviews, videos, articles and photos.

Finally, we settled on the name GhanaCelebrities.Com and the first post captioned “EXPOSED!!! Richard Bezuidenhout’s Affair With Popular Ghanaian Actress Jackie Appiah” was made.

We started with about 10 visitors a day and have moved to over 100,000 monthly unique visitors. The journey has been a hectic one as we battled to gain acceptance and carve for our self the popularity we enjoy today. Various celebrities have blasted us and we have also blasted others…

As if it was just yesterday, I can vividly remember our first celebrity interview with Wanlov Da Kubolor, then Mensa Ansah and then Yvonne Nelson. I can say these 3 celebs gave us a massive root. Though we were young at the time, they still granted us the audience we needed.

I am indebted to the above 3 people for those interviews since it was the foundation upon which GC was built. Over the last 2years, we have interviewed almost all the Ghanaian celebrities-from Adjetey Anang (Pusher ) to Zugah Vicky (A-Z).

The success and the huge readership GC enjoys today is as a result of the help, advice, criticisms and suggestions I received from various personal celebrity friends who thought it wise to point out things that they saw as unnecessary and would not help in our operation.

I cannot list the names of all these celebrities but it is worth expressing my profound thanks to my good friends Confidence Haugen & Ama K Abebrese.

Hey Confidence, I still remember the Nandos and the movie “Hang Over” we watched, Mike Tyson’s kick was the bomb. Ama K, the Japanese restaurant was great, let’s do it sometimes soon. Even when we were supposed to be dinning, these people always chipped in their little advice which I believe has brought GC this far…

Thanks to the other celebrities I talk or chat to once a while about various issues. Leila Djansi, Luckie Lawson, Vicky Zugah, Juliet Ibrahim, Dentaa (Madam Guba), and co, I owe you all a lot and I appreciate your support.

I did not write all that have made GC today and I owe the current and past writers a lot. Ebenezer Anangfio, you are still the man ( I still remember the tea bread and fried eggs you got me the last time I was in Ghana).

Special thanks to Obour Amankwa, Cassie Johnson, Ameyaw Debrah, Yaa Kesiwaa, Almighty Gossip Mama, Perpetual Agyeman, Eric Anokye, Kathyrose Lui & Regina Sackey Addo.

To all the guest writers who send in articles occasionally, GC salutes you all.

Most importantly, GhanaCelebrities.Com is what it is today because of you (the readers). Sometimes, It amazes “myself” how GC has been able to build up such a strong readership.

I thank you all for making GC what it is today especially hilarious commentators like Miss Dior, Shocker, Lily, Dadogfather, Ghallday, That Guy, Akosuaghana, Joseph Midnight, Syn, MEE, Miyagi , Maaka Maaka, TheChuckylee, Mimi & Adjoa Nbaaso)

GC is almost 2 years old, what has been your experience, observation and contribution? What do you think needs to be changed, eradicated or enhanced ? Share your thoughts!

On GC’s actual birthday, we will give out something special to a lucky reader so keep watching this space….

    Wow, ghanacelebrities is just a baby. I mean can you even talk at this age, all you do is poop, eat, and sleep huh? heheheheheh

    Congratulations Chris and all the “staff” once again. I think you guys a doing a great job so keep it up. I have few suggestions(you know me, always opinionated,can’t help myself) I THINK YOU GUYS SHOULD WORK ON THE COSMETICS OF THE WEBSITE. THE HOMEPAGE IS VERY “MESSY”….TOO MUCH STUFF EVERYWHERE. THERE NEEDS TO BE ORGANIZATION.
    ALSO I THINK IT IS ABOUT TIME YOU TAKE THAT ARTICLE CALLED, “Ho Sit Down: This Is A Disgrace, Please Ladies Dont Ever Try This..” I MEAN IT HAS BEEN THERE FOR MONTHS AND I AGREE THAT THIS WILL TEACH OTHERS NOT TO REPEAT THE SAME MISTAKE BUT FRANKLY I THINK IT IS DISRESPECTFUL NOT ONLY TO HER BUT TO A LOT OF WOMAN. WE HAVE ALL DONE THINGS WE ARE NOT PROUD OF SAME FOR THIS GIRL. THE THING IS THAT YOU HAVE TO LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES. SO SHE SHOULDN’T BE PUNISHED BY YOU GUYS STILL HAVING HER NAKED BODY ON YOUR SITE. A WOMAN’S BODY IS A TREASURE, AND I AM SURE IF SHE KNEW THE TAPE WILL BE ALL OVER THE NET SHE WOULDN’T HAVE MADE THE VIDEO FOR HER BOYFRIEND. CHRIS, YOU HAVE MADE YOUR POINT, NOW I THINK IT IS TIME TO RESPECT THE GIRL’S PRIVACY AND THE VIEWERS ON THIS SITE. SOME MIGHT NOT BE OVER 18 YEARS. PLEASE I AM BEGGING YOU,LET US RETIRE THAT ARTICLE PLEASE. THIS IS NOT A PORN SITE, SO LET’S KEEP THINGS CLASSY AND CLEAN PLEASE. PLEASE I AM BEGGING YOU BECAUSE HONESTLY THAT CLIP DISTURBS ME ALOT

    Congratulations. I believe u can do better by posting information daily rather than feeding readers with outdated news. If u are a regular visitor on nigeriafilms.com, u wld realised folks there activate news daily, bt GC would sometimes bombard us with same news heard on radio and TV station for a week. pls improve cos some of us are loosing interest in GC.
