Before the winners of the 2011 AMAA was declared yesterday in Bayelsa State, Nigeria. Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson, a co-winner of the AMAA Best Actress Award last year expectation was to see another Ghanaian pick that award.
She said: “It’s a very tight competition but I’m hoping Ghana will come up with great awards. It will be great to hand over to another great actress from Ghana”, she said to GhanaCelebrities.Com few hours to the awards.
True to her wish, her compatriot Ama K. Abebrese was adjudged as the Best Actress in Africa for her role in ‘Sinking Sands’. The actress whose role in the movie was her first major role was picked ahead of her colleagues in a tight category which comprises of Nollywood heavyweights Genevieve Nnaji (Tango With Me), Omoni Oboli (Anchor Baby), Idiat Shobande (Aramotu) as well as Congolese Manie Malone (Viva Riva) and South African Denise Newman (Shirley Adams).

I was on weekend away and I have missed a hell of drama on here. Anyway, for those interested and those who want to know how the law works in relations to the Leila Djansi v Chris Vincent (GhanaCelebrities.Com) issue, our ping back system has lead as to an article written by an Attorney (African) of Udak Law Firm based in California, USA which looks at this issue.
Read it below…It is obvious that someone is dumb and ignorant about the law as far as the two people are concerned (that is Chris-Vincent & Leila Djansi).
Question of the day: Does a Celebrity have a Right to Privacy on Facebook?
UK Law Student Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri runs a very popular blog site called Ghanacelebrities.com. Although operating out of the UK, he is a celebrity African blogger.
Leila Djansi is a famous Ghanaian filmmaker who resides in Ghana. She is, from all accounts, a brilliant one too. Chris-Vincent according to Leila Djansi routinely takes Leila Djansi’s status updates from Facebook and posts it on his blog. Djansi is upset and sends a scathing email to Chris and also threatens to sue Chris for invasion of her privacy, within 24hours, if he does not take down his posts. (more…)
Saturday, 26th March, 2011 brought some of our notable Africans together in New York for the 2011 Plush F.A.C.E List Awards In New York.
In attendance from Ghana were Star Actress Jackie Appiah, Nadia Buari and Luckie Lawson. For the Awards night, Jackie rocked a beautiful decorated sheath dress made by Ghanaian fashion label Jill-”Anne Marie Adoley Addo” and Nadia Buari was looking glamorous in a slinky black dress made by her mother “Mama Buari creation”.
I am on the same page with Nadia Buari today on her outfit, though not an Oscar Dela Renta, Nadia Buari looks stunning and simply. I love to see our sisters rock our Ghanaian labels and say so to that effect. From the photos, I think Jackie Appiah has put on a bit of weight whiles Nadia Buari has on the other hand lost some few pounds. Jackie Appiah seems to put on weight quick and loses it quick as well…
Awards nominees for this year’s Face2Face Awards were Angelique Kidjo, Ngoli Onyeka Okafor, Lillian Blankson, Edward Armah and Bisola Bokoko.

Tonight at the Bayelsa Cultural Centre, Yenagoa in Bayelsa State in Nigeria, the 7th African Movie Academy Awards 2011 winners will be declared. It is very difficult to know who wins what tonight.
But virtually everyone here on the African Continent has an expectation. What is your expectations? GhanaCelebrities.Com spoke to some people in the movie industry on the continent. Read more …
MAJID MICHEL : “I just want to have lots of fun tonight. I will be surprised if I win it and surprised if I don’t win it.”
FATIMA JABBE : “This is my second time in Nigeria but my first time at the AMAA. I’m looking forward for a good show and a fair show. If your film is nominated, you always want to make sure you win but it’s the experience that matters here, we are meeting different people, we are talking, we are interacting, we are networking. Today is a day that you know that Africans have started realizing that we have something good to export to the rest of the world to acknowledge us”.
SAJANI SRIVASTAVA HER MOVIE ‘NANI’ NOMINATED FOR BEST VISUAL EFFECTS: “This is my first time in Nigeria and in the AMAAs and my expectations for the awards is very high. I’m always positive. Let’s leave it to God.
Yes I’m confident I’m winning the award because my film won the best film in Zanzibar Film Festival as well as nominated in other film festivals, so I have high hopes for tonight. I have not seen the other movies I’m competing with but I know they are good movies also”.
DZIGBODI ALLOTEY : “As usual I’m expecting to have fun. I’m expecting to see an improvement from last year’s awards. I have the feeling tonight is going to be great. I’m hoping to have more fun. (more…)
As much as I love GhanaCelebrities.Com including all its bloggers and founder for bringing us constant up to date Entertainment stories and gossips, I have also criticised them when I think they are being nightmare and unfair to some of our celebrities. However, in this Leila Djansi saga, I do not see anything awful having been done by GC.
The recent unnecessary, absurd and unprofessional attack of Leila Djansi on the founder & blogger of GhanaCelebrities.Com after the latter published non malicious and in fact a free publicity article on Leila Djansi’s upcoming movie “Ties That Binds” has amplified my blood pressure to the extent that I feel like kicking someone in the balls (that is if the person even has a ball).
I am so angry and feel this woman called Leila Djansi is taking Ghanaians for fools. How on earth does she call readers and commentators of this website “Faceless Idiots” when in fact the one being an idiot is just sitting next to her and that is her shameful self.
Who is this Leila Djansi at all and what does she think she is in the Ghanaian movie industry? How many movies has she done or worked on and yet she has been extremely deluded by some cowards and sycophants close to her who are unable to tell her the truth in return for some little dollars that she is the only good film-maker out there.
