Readers’ Mail: Do These Local Champions Really Think They Are Celebrities?

Hello Chris-Vincent,

I know your blog is called GhanaCelebrities.Com but please give me a space as a loyal reader to call a spade a spade.

You cannot imagine how livid I am after reading your post titled ‘Treat Us Like Celebrities…What About Behave Like Celebrities?

To be frank, until I came across this blog, I did not know any celebrity existed in Ghana. Even if any existed, I certainly did not think the person will come from our low-key entertainment industry.

It is annoying to see the likes of Nadia Buari, Jackie Appiah, Yvonne Nelson, Yvonne Okoro, John Dumelo, Majid Michel and others flaunting around as celebrities with no achievement to their names. It gets even more annoying when these talentless and no-achievers come out demanding to be treated as celebrities.

And guess the sort of treatment they are demanding? They do not want to join queues at Banks and other public places. They think they should be allowed to jump queues because they are LOCAL CHAMPIONS…

Do these so called Ghanaian Celebrities know who a celebrity is at all? Let me do some coaching here and they better pay me after this…LOL

A celebrity is a person who has a prominent profile in the media and is easily recognized. Some careers are associated with celebrity status, eg. the top tier of the modelling, acting and sports.

While people may gain celebrity status as a result of a successful career, in other cases, people become celebrities due to media attention for their extravagant lifestyle or wealth (as in the case of a socialite); for their connection to famous people.

Back to our local champions who are forcefully demanding to be treated like Celebrities, which of them have any of the above status? How many GREAT movies have they starred in? What is their state of wealth or connections?

Probably, some people are confusing ‘Ashawobrity’ with Celebrity in Ghana. It is only in Ghana that after starring in single movie or Tv commercial, you automatically become a celebrity and have the audacity to DEMAND that you should be allow to jump queues at public places.

Over the years, I have questioned the celebrity status of so many of these local champions. So people like Confidence Haugen, Delay, Beverly Afaglo, Roselyn Ngissah and others really think they are celebrities huh?

Thank You.
