The World Health Organisation has announced that a large scale operation is underway which could see the development of a serum capable of curing Ebola patients- and that it could be ready as early as December this year.
This Ebola outbreak has been the severest in history, spreading to countries outside the continent as well. Whilst less than 10 non-Africans have died from the virus, it has killed over 4,000 people on the continent, mainly in the epicentres of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone…
The BBC reports the assistant director general for health systems and innovation at the World Health Organisation, Dr Kieny, has announced that a serum is in development which would hopefully cure the disease entirely. (more…)
It looks like Django Unchained actress-Daniele Watts has bitten more than she can chew—surely, you cannot tell me her cry of racism and her attempt to make cops look bad have not contributed to this case being dragged.
The actress and her boyfriend have been charged with lewd conduct for allegedly having ‘seks’ in her car outside CBS Studios.
Last month, Daniele Watts claimed because of her colour, the cops picked up on her when she was just making up with her boyfriend.
Playing the race and the fame card-“do you know who I am” got her a lot of social media support, with many people feeling sorry for her—and calling the police all sort of names.
The fact remains, there are so many racists in police uniforms. We cannot seem to get rid of the institutional racism that has made racial profiling a tradition in the service.
But for the first time, the police was on the right path as eyewitnesses came out to say, actress-Daniele Watts was having full blown SEKS with her white boyfriend at the back of their car in broad day light. (more…)
According to GC reader-Sasha, she bumped into Ghanaian actor-Kofi Adjorlolo in London on Sunday and after trying several times to strike a greeting, Kofi sort of snubbed her—and surely, we think this is unfriendly and ‘uncelebrity’ like…
Some of us will not even bother paying attention to any Ghanaian Celebrity because to be frank, most of them are not worth a minute but if a fan goes the extra mile to call you out politely, giving the person a minute of your time will not take away any money from your pocket as a celebrity.
We’ve heard fans in the past say Nadia Buari, Yvonne Okoro, Yvonne Nelson and Sarkodie have this same sort of stuck-up personality as they treat fans with no respect…
If nothing at all, it is common abroad to pay attention the moment you hear any person speaking Twi or call your local name so well. I occasionally join people’s conversation just because they are speaking Twi and mostly, we end up talking for long. It is just beautiful.
Anyway, check what GC reader-Sasha wrote below and tell us what you think and what your experience has been with any of the Ghanaian celebrities
Yvonne Nelson says she just visited the dentist and as such, check out her teeth—with that big smile in place just to show her fans what she got done inside her mouth. We will advise she does not do this in a hotel bathrooms because they are never clean as they seem.
While Juliet Ibrahim was showing her nice figure in a leggings, Delay comfortably packed her boobies in a top—and got a whole lot of attention from only men. She may be thinking people were excited to see as she calls them her fans but we think, they were checking out the twins who were being suffocated.
Why was she not smart to realize it was only men paying attention?

South African blade runner Oscar Pistorius earlier today received a five year sentence for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s day last year. The trial itself has garnered worldwide attention due to Pistorius’ celebrity status, and thus a long time before the sentence was handed down there had been several debates on the trial and what would constitute a fair sentence.
Judge Thokozile Masipa no doubt had a hard time reaching this final verdict, in her final notes she said she felt her sentence was ‘fair and just’, but also noted the difficulty in reaching a suitable sentence to appease all parties.
“Sentencing is not a perfect exercise. Sentencing is about achieving the right balance”
The question now is if the sentence really was fair and just? Several experts have noted that Pistorius could be out of jail in as little as ten months, with his lawyer Barry Roux echoing that sentiment himself, as reported by the BBC.
The expectation is that he would spend the rest of the sentence under house arrest.
Several considerations went into the final verdict, all of which were laid sufficiently bare during the sentencing hearing and earlier during the trial itself. There was the guilt wrecking Oscar Pistorius the defence played up, the expectation that his disability wouldn’t hold up well in prison, whilst he was described as ‘a ruined man’.
The prosecution argued that a woman had been killed, and a sentence of community service would send the wrong message. They called for a minimum ten years, also demonstrating that the prisons would be fit to hold Pistorius despite his disabilities.
Between the defence’s call for a sentence of community service and the prosecution’s call for a minimum ten years sentence, one could say the Judge found a compromise between the two camps.
The maximum sentence for the charge Pistorius was convicted of, culpable homicide, carried a maximum sentence of fifteen years. It seems like Thokolize Masipa walked a really tight rope in reaching that verdict.
There is no question Pistorius shot Steenkamp; the question was to establish his motive. The prosecution’s attempts to make it look like a misunderstanding precipitated the shooting did not fly, but inasmuch as Steenkamp died then Oscar is guilty and should serve a sentence. His case was not particularly helped by his weak explanation of how he thought there was an intruder.
So if Pistorius serves his entire five year sentence, a measure of justice would have been served in my opinion. The Judge decided he was not guilty of murder and whilst five years is not fifteen, at least by the time he comes out Steenkamp’s family would have the feeling that there has been a sufficient punishment for the crime that so crudely took away their daughter.
Getting out after ten months would be what we can describe as ‘a travesty of justice’. Every legal system has these procedures which mean people sometimes do not serve their full sentences but in this case looking at the circumstances, a ten month jail sojourn would be a punishment that does not fit the crime.
Oscar Pistorius is a global icon, and in the past has served as an inspiration to many people, especially looking at how his story gradually progressed till he became the first Paralympic Olympian. The whole thing has been an unfortunate episode, but Reeva Steenkamp lost her life and no matter how inadvertent Pistorius’ role was in the incident he must serve a sentence which at least pretends to match the severity of the crime.
Five years does that, ten months not so much.
So where do you stand on this, do you think Pistorius has suffered enough, or the judge’s sentence is a joke? On a scale of fair to Donald Trump, where do you stand?
“Oscar Pistorius will likely only serve ten months for the cold blooded murder of his girlfriend. Another O.J travesty. The judge is a moron!”

Rapper-Nicki Minaj has been featured in GQ magazine, wearing a white cow girl-inspired bra and form-fitting skirts.
Inside the magazine, the rapper talks about the brands she collaborates with when it comes to endorsements—and also talked about her controversial ‘Anaconda’ music video.
On her ‘Anaconda’ music video…
I don’t know what there is to really talk about… I’m being serious. I just see the video as being a normal video. I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends. (more…)
First of all we do not get the obsession with tattooing the names of partners on your body as if that is the only way to show someone that you love her or him.
Few weeks ago, Nick Cannon was in the news for removing the large Mariah Carey tattoo he had plastered on his back, just after their breakup…
And now, one of these two things must be happening with Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend- Safaree Samuels who was spotted shirtless by TMZ, and interestingly, he had covered two of the Nicki MInaj’s tattoo he had on his body with new tats. (more…)
I frequently visit a hotel in Accra to do my nocturnal things. As a grandson of Opanyin Kweku Duku, a man who married 18 wives and gave birth to 35 kids, going to places with women to do my thing should not come as a surprise to you. My DNA is always h*rny.
One day as I walked into the reception with my new catch Yvonne Nelson, I saw this very beautiful lady whose beauty dropped my jaw and made my pendulum swing profusely in the metropolitan area of my boxers.
This infuriated Yvonne Nelson so much that she gave me a very dirty slap which did not only shrink my pendulum but also made me see stars with my naked eye. To be honest I saw stars so close that the closest star to earth, Proxima Centaur, was just a yard away. If this is the same slap Sulley Muntari gave Moses Parker, then I think Sulley must be charged with crime against humanity by the ICC.
Apart from the thunderous slap, Yvonne Nelson threatened to leave after a long night of eating and drinking on my pocket. This left me wondering what I was going to do with the Alomo bitters in my waist if I spent the night alone. I immediately considered mast**bation. I know how to do it. It’s nice sometimes but you will go blind one day charley. It will affect your eyes. Stop it!!!!
I was surprised at her actions and the sudden change. I love looking at women and had done it a couple of times in her company when she was taking stuff and chopping my money but she never complained. So why the sudden change?
She even threatened not to talk to me again when she had in her hand goods worth thousands of Ghana cedis I bought for her. In fact, until I met her, I did not know that a dead human beings hair was that expensive. I had not sent money to mama in the village but I had rented her a house, furnished it, bought cloths for Yvonne Nelson, I mean I bought everything including the hair of people who were dead or alive in Brazil, India, Peru, Kejetia, Azerbaijan, etc. Anytime I think of some of the crazy things I did for Yvonne but hesitated to do very little for my family, I realize witchcraft is so so real.

I am not a big fan of weddings and I do not really attend them so I may be a little out of touch with what gets done—but I think Naa Ashorkor made her wedding fun.
We don’t know whose idea it was but photos released show Naa Ashorkor driving a mini car—I don’t know what to call it apart from it being a mini car. It looks like something you will find on a golf park.
Anyway, what do you think of Naa driving that thing on her wedding day? Would you DRIVE something like that on your wedding day?
Check more photos below including a close photo of what she wore (more…)
