What will you say if I tell you that the popular 3 Ghanaian Actresses on a tape sleeping with a Nigerian business tycoon story by NewsOne some years ago has no basis? In fact it was orchestrated by some industry persons…
Just last night, I was talking to Ameyaw Debrah who is here with me in United Kingdom (visiting from Ghana) about the Entertainment industry in Ghana, the prospects and whether I should take it serious or focus on my upcoming NY Bar exams, pass it once and join the corporate world of lawyers or take Entertainment blogging (passion) as a long term business…
During our conversation, we talked about how Entertainment journalists, bloggers and reporters are some how disregarded/disrespected by the celebrities or industry persons in Ghana…
I have been successfully running GhanaCelebrities.Com (as the Founder/Editor) from London with several contributors in Ghana and other parts of the world with the intention of relocating to Ghana for some time to keep blogging.
As much as I have not been disrespected by any celebrity or industry person before (They dare not because I will tell them about themselves, after all no one pays my internet bills or car insurance), I have heard of instances where Entertainment journalists/bloggers have been mistreated by certain celebrities in Ghana.
Though over the years I have not been able to establish why Entertainment journalists, bloggers and writers in Ghana are not given the same world class treatment I see those in UK and America get ( the main reason I entered into Entertainment), what became apparent today on PeaceFm’s Entertainment Review answers it all for me.
Many of the Entertainment journalists in Ghana do not deserve any respect…The sad part of it is that, these our so called celebrities and their managers are giving some media men some STUPID chicken change (money) for them to cook many of the bull stories that come up day after day.
You know what, anytime you read that Yvonne Nelson, Yvonne Okoro, Jackie Appiah, Nadia Buari, Becca or whoever it is has done this or that, remember it is a possibility that these stars have given the writing journalist some chicken CHANGE to orchestrate the story to their benefit or detriment of another star..IT SUCKS BIG TIME! You are being played big time as a reader by some of these so called Ghanaian Entertainment journalists/bloggers/writers.
Now I understand why people think certain celebrities are paying GhanaCelebrities.Com also to write stuff about them or their competitors. SO SAD!
None of these stars have paid me a dime directly or indirectly to write anything ….I value my opinions and independence and I won’t sell it for some few chicken change cedis…Anything I have written on here are things I agree with, my genuine opinion or view on things.
This definitely explains why my relationship with certain stars has gone down the gutters over the last few months-Because they could not buy my conscience and control my content (what I write about them) as they are used to doing, they have deleted me off their twitters, facebook, blackberry, ETC…
I am ranting and I know that (sorry about it)…After listen to the audio below, you will understand the sort of cheap journalism we have been fed with and the big disgrace that will follow Ghana’s Entertainment reportage…
I think I should sell out GhanaCelebrities.Com and find a new reputable hobby. THIS SUCKS!
Now, listen to the entire audio below and you will definitely get where I am coming from (Pay attention to Halifax-Editor of NewsOne, Kiki Banson-Becca’s manager’s submissions).
(If there are errors in this piece, sorry…I am bemused and bewildered…Ghana has a long way to go!)[audio:http://ghcelebrity.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Peacefm.mp3]
