  1. But where from Ken attoh…we all know its Shirley production…#holding it down for our women….just because he knocked her doesn’t mean it’s his production too….#mtchewwww

  2. Jackie Appiah secretly Divorce her Husband to date a Nigerian guy who is a movie Producer and she think that small boy can love her forever, I have live in a hood where Rich people get poor and loose everything they have, if she is dating that guy for money or more fame better yet publicity than, hey Jackie, remember dude want be rich forever and if Miss bankye legs thinks she is beautiful, she should wait till she is 40 or even 50 to see how beautiful she is. Beauty fades like artificial teeth, They get smelling from those ages. This is just advice all those hidden stuff your hiding can’t be hidden forever my advice to you is stop that fake smile your given your die hard fans all the time and keep it real

  3. Oh why are you hating? Don’t you know that it’s Ken Attoh who produces all the films Shirley writes. He is the one who makes the movies what they are.
