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.

protruding backside of Actress Lydia Forson but he is seriously working by sending us the below photos…. Click on photos to enlarge for proper view…
Kidnapping of movie stars is very rampant in Nigeria. Nollywood actors such as Peter Edochie, John Okafor also known as Mr. Ibu have been kidnapped before and released later after payments paid to their kidnappers.
The latest movie star to be kidnapped in Nigeria is Ghanaian Actor “Majid Michel”. Ahead of the final day for the winners of the 7th edition of the African Movie Academy Awards to be declared on Sunday, Ghanaian actor and nominee in the up coming AMAA has been kidnapped by a cross section of the Bayelsan citizen. He was kidnapped when he visited the poolside where the delegates from the various African countries were assembled.
However this kidnapping didn’t involve guns and shooting. It was what people will call ‘mutual kidnapping’. This time, the actor wasn’t kidnapped for weeks and didn’t pay anything to be released. He was held for several hours to the chagrin of the organizers of the wedding ceremony. (more…)

Ghanaian born, USA base artiste Joris Jungly aka Jay-J has returned home with his new single, “Hey Now”. The Atlanta based pop/reggae artist Jay-J has been on the songwriting circuit in the ATL for several years, co-writing songs for some artistes but has returned to push the music to the people he loves the most.
Jay-J has heard the sweet warm reception of Ghanaians with regards to music; hence he is very optimistic that his stay will be well accompanied by a lager reception than he knows.
Jay-J describes his music as a blend of Reggae and R&B, sprinkled with the glitz and glamour of pop doubling as one of those rare enigmatic artists with an equally intriguing background in academia.
The singer/songwriter holds a Bachelors degree in Pure Mathematics and a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics, degree holders are rare to come by in the music industry these days and according to Jay-J, math and music are closely related.
He explained it as: “There are many things in music that are obviously math-related, and many musical notions can be explained in numbers. I think of music as a way to listen to numbers, to bring them into the real world of our senses.”
Jay-J’s official single in Ghana is already enjoying massive air play with lots of responses also coming from Youtube. Hitting on when the album will be release, Jungly said, recently I wrapped up work on my debut album entitled “Riches to Rags and Back”.
“Hey Now” is a song which will certainly meet the listening ear of the majority, a well thought out song with clean lyrics. The album is produced by Atlanta based hit maker Stylz Keyz, boasts 12 tracks that run the gamut of musical emotions.
