3 min


As the biggest and leading Ghanaian Entertainment & Celebrity online media, GhanaCelebrities.Com’s credibility and ability to go viral with materials need not to be mentioned.

2013 will soon be over and as we do yearly,  let’s look at some of our top 5 stories that took off, went viral and even got mentioned by some of the big global media platforms.

On a global scale, GhanaCelebrities.Com was mentioned/quoted by Yahoo.Com, MailOnline.Com, SandraRose.Com and several other big platforms this year…

When we come to Ghana, we were all over the place—several of our stories were mentioned and discuss on major TV and Radio stations in Ghana, including Peace Fm, Adom Fm, Joy Fm, Luv Fm, Hitz Fm, TV3 and Adom TV.

Now our Top 5 Stories that Went Viral

1. Emelia Brobbey’s Shoplifting Saga

GhanaCelebrities.Com broke the Emelia Brobbey London shoplifting story and followed the first story with over 10 pieces on developments until Akua Agyeiwaa who was detained in UK was finally deported to Ghana.

2. Kim Kardashian in Nigeria

Our little piece on Kim Kardashian having been paid thousands of dollars to host an event in Nigeria, where she spent just about 45 minutes on stage went viral—fetching us mentions by Yahoo.Com, MailOnline.Com and several other platforms.

3. Chris Brown in Ghana Stories

After being paid a million dollar to perform in Ghana and be part of the cutting of the sod to mark the beginning of work on the Hope City project in Accra, Chris Brown failed to show up for the sod cutting and decided to smoke WEED on stage in Accra.

Disappointed with Chris Brown, we unleashed our anger through series of articles—-which captured in detail Chris Brown’s entire trip to Ghana. And our Chris Brown in Ghana stories went as far as being quoted by SandraRose.Com

4. *UPDATED* Why I Will Never Fly KLM Again & You Should Probably Avoid Them Too!

I had an unpleasant experience with KLM which pushed me to pour my heart out. Though not the usual Entertainment/Celebrity piece, it got several people talking—especially those who have had similar experience with airlines.

KLM officials even read the piece and they sent me 3 emails to apologize —and a compensation was given out to me as well. This was one time I felt great to be the Editor/Founder of GhanaCelebrities.Com. Unlike the other passengers, I had a platform which I used to get my message across to KLM and eventually, got some compensation from them.

5.  Comment On Jim Iyke’s Alleged Fight In Ghana

Though we did not break this story, our sharp edge commentary on the character-Jim Iyke few days ago sent our story to almost all the African blogs. From BellaNaija.Com to the little blogs, Jim Iyke’s reaction to our piece brought in several ping backs and mentions…

For some days now, some friends have been calling me Bisexual Nincompoop, courtesy of Jim Iyke.
