P-Square ‘Breakup’-My Thoughts…

Posted on 23 Apr 2014 at 8:40pm

For a few days now, news of versatile music duo P-Square (Peter Okoye and Paul Okoye) breaking up has been making quick and disturbing rounds…Ironically, just a few days ago I was discussing D-Banj and Don Jazzy’s infamous split with a Nigerian friend. Human beings are naturally territorial—greedy and possessive. But sometimes we cannot do it alone, we need that magic of two heads and that is what the success of most music duos/ groups have been based on.

When D-Banj was at his peak with Don Jazzy, they virtually owned the African music scene, making hits, performing on stages across Africa and breaking banks. But they let it get to their heads; they started thinking they were too much to be pulled down so they started playing with their heavy weight position in the industry. They thought they could never be replaced.

So after many unnecessary misunderstandings which they were supposed to solve and continue working together, they decided to split. What has become of D-Banj today? When was the last hit? Is he still the biggest artiste in Africa? They forgot talented young boys like Wizkid, Davido, Olamide and more were waiting for their 15 minutes to take over.

In Ghana, let us not forget Wutah and Praye. The question is; who and what at all gets into their minds to split up just when things are going well? Only to end up struggling for one single hit…That’s it for that recap, lest I digress; let’s go back to P-Square. (more…)

Now is the time to buy a tape and measure the hips of your girlfriend or wife and if her hip is considered to be wide, you have to be worried—and she better starts talking…

According to a new research, women with wide hips are more likely to have one-night stands and more sexual partners in general.

If you are a man and you step out looking for a one night stand, you definitely should now know the type you have to be hitting on…

Check below for the reason why women with wide hips  have more sexual partners and are likely to have one night stands… (more…)

Posted on 23 Apr 2014 at 3:28pm

Few months ago when GhanaCelebrities.Com sat down with Hammer of the Last Two in UK, he revealed that the biggest thing to happen to Ghana Music is TeePhlow—and if you doubted his estimation, TeePhlow has released a new song-THE WARNING which will ‘hit your mind’.

Featuring Sarkodie who has a collection of heavy punchlines, TeePhlow succeeds in matching Sarkodie to a great extent—on this track, showing that he’s a swift and thought-provoking lyrical champion.

It looks like Sarkodie just found a competitor—but since they are all from the camp of Hammer, we will say ‘a lyrical brother’.

As usual, the war took place on Last Two’s BEAT with the usual strong hip-hop waves…

Man Kills Online Girlfriend After Realizing She Was a 45 Year Old Married Woman

Posted on 23 Apr 2014 at 12:23pm

 

First of all, who in his right mind will have 3 years online relationship with a woman that he has never met? Though I am not against online dating, I think people should just start looking around them for love and romance, instead of hiding behind devices—because there are several liars and creeps at the other side…

Despite the fact that this man was deceived, he had no right to pull a gun and kill the woman. Nothing really is what it seems online—was he not told that?

According to NY Daily News;

An Indian man shot his catfishing Facebook girlfriend dead after realizing she was in fact a married 45-year-old housewife, police said.

Vineet Singh, 22, reportedly spent nearly three years romancing Jyoti Kori online — who had claimed she was 21 and had used fake pictures on her profile.

The duo finally agreed to meet by a scenic waterfall near her hometown of Jabalpur on Friday. But cops say that jobless Singh, from Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, was stunned when he discovered she was actually married with three children. (more…)

No Retreat, No Surrender in Brazil 2014…Ghanaian Footballers Wives for World Cup

Posted on 23 Apr 2014 at 8:45am

According Razz Newspaper which comes out every Wednesday, this year’s World Cup in Brazil may also be about the WAGS—as the wives of several Ghanaian footballers may make it to the tournament.

With on-going debate about whether the FA should give a green-light for the wives of our footballers to be present and support, the Newspaper has compiled a list of possible WAGS we may see out there should the go ahead be given.

Check out Razz’s compilation below and don’t forget to grab a copy of the paper…

Just a few weeks to the much-anticipated FIFA World Cup in Brazil, it was expected that the talk would focus on how prepared the national team, Black Stars are, as they face fierce competition in a group regarded as the group of death; instead, the debate has hinged on whether it is appropriate for the players to take their wives to their camp.

Well, some of the players are married and if the green light is given; their wives will be in Brazil. Others are divorced and if they make the cut, we wonder who they will present in camp as their companions. For other players, they are unmarried and have not publicly declared who their girlfriends are, so it will be tricky on who they take to camp as their girlfriends.

Razz Newspaper has compiled the list of footballers wives, not girlfriends, legally-wedded wives who may take part in the Mundial come June-July 2014;

Abena & Kwadjo Asamoah

The utility player for the Black Stars is married to Abena Asamoah and the couple has a cute baby boy, Jason. If approval is granted, Abena will surely be in Brazil, cheering his husband on and off the pitch.

Omega & Samuel Inkoom

Samuel Inkoom’s wife loves the cameras as she doesn’t miss the chance to splatter her photos on instagram and she won’t miss the opportunity to go to Brazil if authorization is given. Omega and Samuel Inkoom have three adorable kids,– Samuelina, Samuel Jnr and newly born Shawne. (more…)

On Saturday 17th May 2014, the GUBA Foundation will be hosting its fourth autism awareness seminar at the Resource for London Centre, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.

The seminar which is free to attend, promises a platform for Service Providers such as Child behaviour and development specialists, to impart knowledge and offer support to autistic families. Attendees also get the opportunity to communicate, share experiences and learn practical solutions to everyday problems in regards to autism.

Previous seminars have contributed positively towards raising awareness about the prevalence of autism within the African community; in turn, helped to alleviate several misconceptions about autism. It has also brought autistic families together, offered financial and emotional support for struggling families.

Autism affects one in every 100 people in the UK. Over 100,000 people living with this condition come from Black or Ethnic Minority (BME) communities. Despite this substantial figure, people from the BME community are typically diagnosed later than their Caucasian counterparts. One of the core aims of this upcoming seminar is to educate the BME community to help eradicate the stigma and misconceptions about autism; as it often hinders efforts to manage autistic people effectively within the community.
