Jackie Appiah Disappoint Fans As She Boycotts Founders Merit Awards Presentation! Is She Feeling Too Big To Share 1 Car With Juliet Ibrahim, Yvonne Okoro & Roselyn Ngissah?

Posted on 27 Jan 2011 at 2:49am

Star Actress Jacquelyn “Agyeman” Appiah is known in the Ghana Movie Industry as Jackie Appiah. She is without doubt one of the richest Ghanaian actresses now. She is also one of the few actresses who own fleet of expensive cars.

At present, the actress owns and drives a 2008 model Nissan Murano, an allwheel drive variant Infinity 2009 model, a £120,000 ultra-modern Range Rover that has the registration number customized in her name.

Putting the above into consideration, then maybe Jackie does not need the SUV Zoyte that the Ghana Movie Awards gave out. Even if she does not need it, was it the reason why she boycotted the presentation of the car? (more…)

Rocky Dawuni Nominated For NAACP Awards 2011 + GC’s Upcoming Exclusive Chit Chat With The Ghanaian Reggae Music Icon…

Posted on 26 Jan 2011 at 9:57am

Exclusive insight into the Afrocentric lifestyle will continue with an interview with Rocky Dawuni. A while back the readers were glad to read about (Fashion & Lifestyle: Ghana’s Afrocentric Dons And Divas …) the many notable figures in our community that embrace wearing their hair natural.

Well this series will continue in the coming months, so to help me in these efforts please send your questions you’d like to ask about the Afrocentric look!

To refresh your memory, Ghanaian Reggae star Rocky Dawuni continues to lift his global profile since the release of his critically acclaimed new album Hymns for the Rebel Soul.

The album has been nominated for a prestigious NAACP (National Association for The Achievement of Colored Peoples) Image Award 2011 for “Outstanding World Music Album.”

Do you have any questions you’d like to ask Rocky Dawuni? Have you nursed a curiosity about the Rasta lifestyle choice which sometimes has our community up in arms back home and even abroad? Yet when those amongst us achieve fame and respect they are somehow excused, praised even for following the Bob Marley look?

Why is this still such a heated debate in our community, why do we just prefer to be clothed in traditional outfits only on special occasions?

Ladies of today prefer the weaves and men are blindly fooled into frowning upon a “Davi” or shaved hair cut. Again I ask, what is it about doing your hair natural that is so appealing in artists yet when the regular person does their hair in afro or dread-lock we are puzzled?

Readers, I want us to be honest with ourselves. Pose questions to the Ghana man or Ghana woman who chooses not to perm their hair. Even when they visit a barber shop or hair dresser it is simply to upkeep their natural hair with needed trim or lining of the edges.

What are your fears about going natural? Ask, and you shall receive your answers from some of our celebrities who have made the big leap into the natural way of styling their hair.

Love & Relationship: I Met A USA Based Ghanaian Guy On Facebook, We Started A Relationship & Now I Do Not Even Hear From Him…I Am Confused!

Posted on 25 Jan 2011 at 5:48pm

Dear GC,

I met this Ghanaian guy on facebook and he is in USA. We started dating after couple of conversations and we seemed in love, but for some time now, he does not call or send me messages.

I do the calling which I really do not mind. My problem is, when he misses my calls he does not return them claiming he is busy. I have my doubts because how could he be so busy that he can not even spend a minute to inbox me.

I want to forget about him. Is it the right thing to do. I have discussed this severally with him but there is still no change. Should I forget about him or should I hope for a change?

Erica,

__________________________________________________________________ Dear Erica,

I am very certain of the advise I’m about to give you and the straight and simple answer to your question is no, you should not hope for a change.

No matter how much your desire encourage you to think this can or may happen, it won’t. As you stated you have brought this to his attention more than once and he has not changed so it won’t just suddenly happen.

He will only feel you are nagging him and as I’m sure you know men detest this! In all honesty, no one wants to be nagged at and if he continues to miss your calls, that is his way of saying he is not listening or agreeing with you. As painful as this is for you that is the naked truth. (more…)

Kalsum Sinare, Abdul Salem, Michael Essien, Chris Attoh, Jackie Appiah, Majid Michel, Nadia Buari and other celebrities are sometimes captured looking sharp, glamorous and flawless on various red carpets.

Most of our celebrities know how to strut their stuff in the right dress, but others make me gag. Hot celebrities turn out to look extremely ridiculous in their style and cuts.

Motivational Message Of The Week:The Simplest Trick To Achieving Success In Life, Grab It Now!

Posted on 24 Jan 2011 at 8:39am

What don’t we know about success yet? We seem to know the ins and outs of success and yet many of us with all our efforts cannot achieve the success we desire in Life. This has lead to a lot of us settling for less or giving up on the concept of achieving success in life.

We know success is relative, success belongs to hard working people who are able to keep a consistent momentum with their struggle, and also we fully have embraced the fact that success is not a destination, but a continuous journey.

With all the above at our finger tips and under thorough implementation, like some huge igneous rock, we remain stagnant in our endeavours. The only part of us that seems to move is our imagination and even that, we are beginning to feel like harebrained individuals and would soon give up on the fantasies of success we deploy in our minds.

Out Of Box Story: Mercy Johnson Goes Bald For A Movie Role: Hope The Movie Is Worth It!…

Posted on 23 Jan 2011 at 11:12am

Photos of Nollywood Actress Mercy Johnson having had her hair cropped off  for a movie role have been circulating on the internet. When I came across it, all I said was; hope the movie is worth the hustle and this professional decision Mercy Johnson has taken…

Surely, she is not the first and would not be the last to have this done for a movie role but I can’t imagine our beautiful Jackie Appiah, Nadia Buari or Yvonne Nelson shaving off every hair on their head for a movie role.

Maybe when the right movie comes with the right money, they will give it a consideration.How do you think Martha Ankomah,  Yvonne Nelson, Jackie Appiah, Nadia Buari or Luckie Lawson will look like without hair?

Bravo to Mercy Johnson. However if she was my girlfriend, that would have been bye bye to the relationship.  Look at her pawpaw head ! lol

Check out the photos below… (more…)
