The Drama Continues: Ghana Movie Awards’ ‘Best Actress’ SUV Car Still Parked At The Golden Tulip Hotel, They Cannot Even Decide Who Among The 4 Should Take The Car Home…

Posted on 28 Jan 2011 at 12:58pm

I am not in the least bit surprised to hear about the following news with regards to the Ghana Movie Awards prize presentation ceremony; according to Joy Online, GP Limited (who were the primary organisers of the Ghana Movie Awards), have announced that the SUV car awarded to the four recipients of the ‘Best Actress’ award, is still parked at the Golden Tulip Hotel.

As you are all aware by now, there were FOUR actresses were awarded the ONE award (Roselyn Ngissah, Yvonne Okoro, Jackie Appiah, and Juliet Ibrahim). With the exception of Miss Appiah, the remaining three ladies were able to attend the prize presentation ceremony.

However, in stark contrast to Agya Koo (winner of the Male Founder’s Merit Aarwad), who drove his SUV home on the same day, the SUV for the winners of the ‘Best Actress’ award was still parked in the exact spot the keys were handed over to the actresses- 48 hours after the presentation ceremony.

GC’s Exclusive Interview With Rocky Dawuni: Talks About His Music, Hair Style, Rastafarianism & Others + Photos…

Posted on 28 Jan 2011 at 11:45am

The chit chat I had with Afro Reggae Roots musician Rocky Dawuni turned out to be a lesson imparting wisdom. He is one of the many manifestations that contribute to the positive images of the Afro-centric style.

When GhanaCelebrities.Com asked about his penchant for wearing browns, greens, cream for his stage, video and performance attire, he candidly compared it to a case of favoritism, they have certain naturalness to them and I gravitate to the earth tone colors.”

I wish I could tell you that he faced a firing squad of complaints from his friends and family for going natural but it would be a tale for a Bollywood film. Even the optimist, Rocky Darwuni’s stance from a young age was that, I felt from the onset, a positive sense, it challenged the mindset that here I am as a musician who is responsible, working hard at my craft and wearing my hair this way is symbolism to make Ghanaians think of dreads in a less critical way; also to not judge a person based on their look and their hair.” (more…)

Ghana Movie Awards Is Another Skimpy, Bias & Gobbledygook Award Scheme… My Factual Opinion, What Is Yours?

Posted on 27 Jan 2011 at 9:40pm

Most of us Ghanaians are jokers and very non-outspoken, a behaviour which has turned majority of us into some coward sycophants failing to see the truth in what goes on around us. Even if aware of the truth, our dim assertion of being branded enemies of progress and non-well wishers curtail our minds to speaking the truth.

The above is one of the foremost reasons why Ghana is where it is today and our activities will always be considered as a joke by those out side with critical minds, understanding and foresight to seeing the truth and what lies behind the rock as far as our endeavours are concern. (more…)

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…)
