Still rocking his ‘This Is New Africa’ cap, Fuse ODG (realname Richard Abiona) has released a studio video for his latest song-Come Closer, featuring Nigeria’s Wande Coal.
The year has been great for Fuse ODG and we surely cannot wait to hear what he has for us in the new year. From how things look in the video, it seems the song will have multiple visuals to its name—and this is just the first.
Check out the studio video for Come Closer below…

Our Ghanaian Entertainment Industry is pretty young and less attractive to plastic surgery, so whereas other industries can count hundreds of boobie jobs, we only have the one and only-Confidence Haugen still on top of the ladder…
Many people got to know Confidene Haugen with those big loads in front of her. We know she complains of back pains but I guess that is a reasonable price to pay for the glamour.
In 1999, Confidence Haugen won Miss Volta Region and that was before her BOOBIE JOB entreprise—which we hear got fixed in South Africa. We have a photo for you to see how she looked then…
And then we have a photo of her today…
The question is; do you think the BOOBIE JOB was necessary? Did she really need it?

A certain Ghanaian female musician who is said to be a bi-sexual is seriously CHOPPING DOWN the wife of a Ghanaian footballer, GhanaCelebrities.Com has learned.
Like most female Ghanaian musician, the said musician is struggling to knock that hit song which will bring in the much needed cash and attention. But when it comes to the use of her tongue, she must be hitting it really good—if not, what else would push a married woman to open her legs for her?
We are told the footballer husband confronted the wife recently over her affairs with the musician, but the wife denied the fact they are chopping each other down, stating that, they are just good friends.
From what we are told, this female musician claims to have had enough of men, and she is said to have enjoyed lesbian relationships in the past with a certain top Ghanaian club owner and a certain talented female musician.
Though this sounds a bit over the top, we are told the mother of one (the female musician) had secretly dated this same Ghanaian footballer whose wife she is now chopping down. The footballer in question played in the 2010 Ghana’s World Cup match against USA, which Ghana won by 2–1 in extra time. (more…)
If the international status we confer onto our artists is not well defined, we shall continue to delude ourselves that we are ‘there’ but in actuality, we shall remain ‘local champions’ till thy kingdom come.
Irrespective of whichever dictionary you believe in or check your words from, the basic meaning of one saying something or someone is international in our infotainment industry means that that thing is known worldwide.
Male actor Prince David Osei was casted for a film produced by a Hollywood film maker and was subsequently invited to USA to grace the red carpet for the premier of the movie – ‘The Dead.’ Stories had it in Ghana that Prince David Osei has gone international.
Deborah Vanessa, after releasing the song Uncle Obama, was interviewed on CNN to share the rationale behind the song. Quickly, news had it that she has gone international. Sarkodie, after getting nomination for BET awards and subsequently emerging victorious, was said to have gone international. What kind of international is this?
I’m very sure if the BET award organizers hear us saying Sarkodie is now an international artist simply because he came for an award behind their stage, they will convulse with laugh teasingly at Ghana. All my correspondents in East and North Africa tell me they have never heard the name Sarkodie before, not to talk of having listened to his songs.
Analyzing this international illusion carefully, all it smacks of is stark absurdity! This is because some of the people who grace those western platforms are not even known in all the ten regions of Ghana or in the 52 countries in Africa talkless of the whole world.
A local champion Ghanaian artiste visits CNN or BBC or any western platform for a day and we confer international status on him/her. So if a promising artist in another continent comes to Ghana and he or she is interviewed on GBC or Joy 99.7FM, has that artist also gone international?
For instance, a 13 year old hip pop musician by name Young Dapper from USA is currently plying his musical profession in Ghana. Has he gone international? Indeed, the meaning of international in Ghanaian showbiz industry rest on funny assumptions!
Stretching the full dimension of this international fallacy, I guess it’s a Ghanaian ‘thing.’ A one- man-pastor who has no branch or network with any pastor in even Togo establishes a church in Ghana and he adds…….so so and so‘International Church.’
A private man establishes a school in Accra without any branch in even Kumasi but he adds…… so so and so ‘International School. ’Personally, I refuse to join this international illusion choir because it’s very cloddish to my intellect. I don’t know about you. Until then…..MOTWUM!!
Opposite the Mamprobi Presbyterian Church and five meters away on the right side of Mamprobi post office in Accra, is Plaza cinema. As a young boy growing up in Mamprobi in the early 90s, I saw thousands of movie-goers who huddled Plaza cinema just to watch movies.
Built over 50 years ago, Plaza cinema was not the only cinema then. We had: Rex, Roxy, Orion, Opera, Globe, Dunia, Ophel, Orbit, Laskala, Olympio, 5-Star, Royal, Rega cinemas respectively, and others (my memory can’t recall). Today, most of these cinemas have been architecturally turned into churches and big stores.
Currently, National Theatre and the Accra Mall – Silverbird Cinemas serve as the steadiest venue for movie makers as far as movie premiering or screening is concerned. Out of the lot, the only existing old cinema that caught my attention for this write up is Plaza cinema, because, I grew up seeing it and went there on many occasions to watch movies.
I recall watching old Ghanaian movies such as; Confessions, You Can’t Laugh, Dangerous Game, The Police Officer, Escape to Love, Justice, Babina, Out of Sight, Out of Love, Expectations, Kanana, When the Heart Decides, Ghost Tears, Dark Sands, Suspense, Namishia, The Noise of Silence, A Mother’s Revenge, Baby Thief, My Sweetie, A Stab in the Dark, Loving You, Unconditional Love, Who killed Nancy?, Double Trouble, I Surrender, Fatal Decision, Candidate for Hell, Marijata, Just Once, Cracked Illusion, Diabolo, Black Sunday, Okukuseku and others. Indeed, when we were we then, where were you?
Comparing Plaza Cinema to National Theatre and Silverbird Cinemas, the former has many comparative advantages to the latter. Plaza cinema if architecturally re-crafted, can accommodate 15,000 audiences. It has a large reserved land size for car parks.
Location-wise, Plaza cinema is at a vantage point, thus, on the main Mamprobi road. Hundred meters from its right side is Mamprobi police station. Another hundred meters from its left side is Korle-Bu teaching hospital. The essence is that, if organizers face unwarranted hooliganism from agitated audience, policemen can just walk to the scene and calm the grounds.
Should there be casualties, they can be conveyed to Korle-Bu in no time for medical attention. Aside using the cinema for movie premiers, it can also be used for almost all showbiz or entertainment concerts. Truly, a great asset is left in shambles.
Unfortunately, the over 50 year old Plaza cinema is still physically standing but wailing for attention. My recent regular evening visits to the cinema to see how the cinema is faring gave me moistened eyes. A cinema that has hosted thousands of audience before now hosts between 10-16 movie-goers.

Look close and deep into the eyes of the cute baby girl and you can easily name her celebrity father…
She looks adorable and those eye lashes are too cute—I wish I had them…LOL
Anyway, can you guess whose daughter this is? If you can see from the eyes, just think about the swag and bandana on the head…Who will be CRAZY enough to do this?
Pastor Ebenezer Asare Kumi, Head Pastor of Grace Powerhouse Ministries, was on Wednesday remanded in Police custody by an Accra circuit court for having sex with his 12-year-old daughter. The Pastor is alleged to have defiled his daughter while his wife was on admission to deliver their last child. The victim, for fear of her life kept the ordeal to herself although she had begun limping because her father had threatened her with death if she should tell anyone.
The issue only came to light after the victim’s mother noticed that her daughter could not walk very well and therefore took her to the Ridge Hospital for examination and treatment. Thankfully, her mother took the bold step to report the case to the police.
This is one of many cases of incest which happens in our society where many of these acts go unreported because of threats and fear which makes it impossible for the usually young daughters to report their fathers. It is one of the worst forms of sexual exploitation between parents and children or siblings. Whether this is done out of sexual greed or lack of control of one’s desire, it is very difficult to understand such loathsome behaviour.
While there are general explanations on how fathers can be quite close to their daughters and vice versa, still the idea of turning one’s own daughter into a sexual object is hard to believe. Some even do it with the mentality of ‘tasting before giving out in marriage’ – with others bearing children out of this dastardly act.
Redefining sexual activity and giving it a new meaning in order for someone to sexually please himself or herself at the expense of someone’s vulnerability is bad. If it is a means of getting satisfaction, can satisfaction be justified by bringing suffering and permanent scarring to one’s offspring? A child who is exposed to neglect, violence and abuse will grow up and value the same ideas. (more…)
This is now getting ridiculous. Thamsanqa Jantjie, the 34 year old sign language interpreter who stood on the high stage at Nelson Mandela’s Memorial Service to throw his hands about as if he was doing justice to what was being said has come out to explain why his total ‘fakery’
It emerged yesterday that, Thamsanqa Jantjie who signed for a portion of the televised event at Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium was simply making up his own signs and the deaf people who were relying on him to understand what was being said were totally LOST as to what he was doing.
Explaining what happened, Thamsanqa Jantjie has said while he was on the big stage, he got a Schizophrenia and begun to hallucinate—so was hearing so many voices…
What an idiot!
According to Sky News;
A “fake” sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service has reportedly said he suffered a schizophrenic episode.
Thamsanqa Jantjie, who was criticised for apparently making “meaningless gestures” while interpreting the speeches of world leaders on stage, said he takes medication for the condition.
He said he did not know whether it was the scale of the event or the happiness he felt about being involved that triggered the episode.
The 34-year-old, who was pictured signing next to the likes of US President Barack Obama, claimed he suddenly lost concentration and started hearing voices and hallucinating.
He also had visions of angels coming into the stadium and was trying not to panic because there were “armed policemen around me”.
Mr Jantjie said the episode impaired his ability to hear things properly and interpret what was being said, but he did not feel able to leave so continued to sign words and phrases that did not make sense. (more…)
It doesn’t seem more like the CAKES we adore out here but she must be thinking otherwise—flaunting it so she can make it to our VIEWING PLEASURE column.
I thought it was always about; if you got it, flaunt it. Deborah must have not heard of this so let her show us what is left behind…
Anyway, half a loaf is better than none…right?
