The evil that men do they say, lives after them – but in this case involving a young boy and a girl, they’ve had to actually stay with their evil deeds and its consequences till their dying day.
A young Voltarian boy (name withheld) who lives in Aflao recorded his girl friend (name withheld) whilst the two had fun in his apartment. In the 3 minutes bang video GhanaCelebrities.Com saw, the girl is seen sitting on top of the boy as things unfold.
Whilst she was busy ‘working,’ the boy, is seen pressing his phone – pretending he’s cutting a call or texting. Unknown to the girl, the boy was recording her. Unfortunately for the girl, her face is clearly seen but that of the boy is not.
Later, the video was leaked on social media. The source who spoke to GhanaCelebrities.Com, however, could not tell how the video leaked but it is now the topical issue in Aflao and its environs.
The girl’s family who saw the video, reported to the police who subsequently arrested the boy. The boy was compelled to perform the marriage rite of the girl. The interesting aspect of the whole story is that neither the boy nor the girl has a job. (more…)
At long last, the biggest surviving cinema left in Accra, Plaza Cinema, has been sold out to UniCredit Ghana Ltd – after it was long abandoned to rot.
Opposite the Mamprobi Ebenezer Presbyterian Church and five meters away on the right side of Mamprobi post office in Accra, is Plaza cinema. Built over 50 years ago, Plaza cinema was not the only cinema Accra had in the 90s.
We had: Rex Cinema, Roxy Cinema, Orion Cinema, Opera Cinema, Globe Cinema, Dunia Cinema, Ophel Cinema, Orbit Cinema, Laskala Cinema, Olympio Cinema, 5-Star Cinema, Royal Cinema, Rega Cinema, and others. Today, most of these cinemas have been architecturally turned into churches and big stores.
After most of the above cinemas were sold, we still have Rex Cinema, Roxy Cinema and Plaza – with Plaza Cinema being the biggest of them all. Today, Plaza Cinema has been sold to UniCredit. GhanaCelebrities.Com gathered earlier (about 3 months ago) from one filmmaker that Plaza Cinema has long been under litigation between GAMA Films and the Ga Mantse Chiefs. (more…)
According to a board member on the Cinematograph Exhibition Board of Control, the board has finally approved the raining controversial movie from Kumawood – ‘Castro Amanehunu’ so the filmmaker can go ahead and release the movie.
A movie poster bearing the production name, Odame Productions, was seen on several social media platforms in the past week titled ‘Castro Amanehunu.’ Already, the country is still in a moaning state with respect to a celebrated musician by name Castro and a female Janet who went jet skiing in Ada in the company of other friends but are missing or feared dead.
Many have therefore condemned the action of the filmmaker over the week because they suspect the film is or can be a direct replication of the Castro-Janet tragedy. The Film Producers Association of Ghana FIPAG, have thus come out to condemn the filmmaker’s initiative – claiming it’s against morals of our society, culture and our believe system so they won’t allow the movie to be released.
However, revered broadcaster and a member of the Cinematograph Exhibition Board of Control, Mr. Ken Addy, reacting to the issue has said “the board has approved the movie so it can be released. We did so on Wednesday (13th August, 2014)”
Asked why, Mr. Addy told host, Christian Agyei Frimpong, that, “the name Castro is a household name. It is not the preserve of anyone for which reason no filmmaker can’t use. Secondly, the storyline is very different from the Castro and Janet tragedy we are all talking about or know. (more…)
The Ebola virus just would not be left alone, as Prophet T.B Joshua, head pastor of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, has declared it as a product of Satan and manufactured from the ‘pit of hell’.
The Nigerian prophet declared it in his sermon to his congregation yesterday, saying God had revealed it to him that the devil was using the outbreak to combat the love that people had for each other.
Apparently the weapon Satan is afraid of most, is love.
The claim Satan is trying to destroy the love men have for each other reminds me a lot of a certain conversation from Game of Thrones. A certain character, Varys was giving another character Tyrion some information on the moves his sister was making against him, Tyrion said he was lying to create strife between him and his sister.
Varys’ reply was classic “Where before there was nothing but love”
The point being you can’t destroy love that did not particularly exist before. I don’t know if you can equate public handshaking and gatherings as a symbol of some great love the human race have for each other.
The cleric then led his church in prayer against the disease, saying that life would soon return to normal for the affected countries. (more…)
The recent upsurge of amateur seks tape productions starring several of the country’s youth has led to the usual uproar about how the upcoming generation lacks a moral fibre and have been corrupted by too much exposure to western practices.
This is an old sentiment, rearing its head whenever something happens that people feel would not have happened during those good old days of African traditional living. There was more discipline back then, they would say nostalgically.
Whilst admittedly true, it’s unrealistic to expect that in such a globalised world, practices that we’ve associated with the west would not seep into the very fabric of our society. Everyone clamours for the big, church wedding these days, don’t they? Yet that was not the case way back when; during these good old days everyone keeps telling us about.
So leaving aside the question of why we think two consenting adults cannot decide to do whatever they want to do in the confines of their room, what is this moral fibre they keep talking about that the youth lack? Because I have looked around the whole country to find it and I’m sadly found wanting.
We live in a country where politicians live lavish lifestyles when the economy seems on the brink of teetering into an abyss. We live in a country where corruption at high levels is seen as normal and no one ever pays for their oh so obvious crimes. (more…)
GhanaCelebrities.Com’s investigations exposed several layers of scandals in a beauty pageant called Miss Supranational. After our investigations, we presented our findings to the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, who also launched their independent investigations to establish the truth or otherwise of our findings.
At the end of the day, our findings proved credible – as the organizers and contestants confirmed them to the PRO of the Ministry who visited them unannounced. In case you did not read our findings, you may read it from HERE.
The latest coming from the Ministry as obtained by GhanaCelebrities.Com is that, the ministry has distanced itself from the pageant. Read below the press statement from the ministry to us.
GhanaCelebrities.Com is very grateful to its reporter for his good investigative work that has exposed a social ill in this regard. We promise to do more of such civil duties as patriotic citizens as required by our journalistic profession. Until then…MOTWUM!!
The world cup was a fun one month for all soccer lovers, though one pop star made it fun for people from all walks of life.
That was Rihanna, who throughout the entire month long fiesta tweeted her support for several teams, including eventual winners Germany. She even found the time to take pictures with the team and the world cup after their narrow win over Argentina.
It seems the Barbados pop singer caught the football bug during the period, as the Metro reports that she is contemplating taking over an English Premier League side.
And the lucky team in question are 18 times Premier League champions Liverpool, who narrowly last season missed out on their first league trophy in over twenty years.
Rihanna is planning to set up her own football academy in her native Barbados, and with this plan seem ready to launch her love for football unto the big time. (more…)
US actor and comedian Robin Williams, 63, has been found dead in his house in an apparent suicide.
Marin County Police in California said he was pronounced dead at his home shortly after officials responded to an emergency call around noon local time, yesterday.
Williams was famous for such films as Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society and won an Oscar for his role in Good Will Hunting and his publicist has stated that had been “battling severe depression”.
According a report by the Los Angeles Times reported in July Robin Williams had recently returned to a rehabilitation centre to “fine-tune” his sobriety.
“At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to as Robuphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made,” police said in a statement. (more…)
After several negative scares and a near invincible general outlook concerning Ebola which has become a regional threat to West Africa, it seems Ghana just may have recorded her first case of Ebola!
It is reported that on Friday afternoon, a Burkinabe man, who had general symptoms of Ebola including fever, nose and ear bleeding, was taken to the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital dead on arrival. The man was brought through the border from Burkina to Ghana by his relatives who wanted proper medical care for him but he died on the way. My question? Why wasn’t he screened at the border? Is Ghana this careless?
Dr Joseph Yaw Manu, confirmed to StarrFMonline.com that the man had died at the time he was brought in, saying: “…What scared me most as a Medical Doctor is that he was bleeding from his ears and nose–symptoms of Ebola.”
Do you know what I am thinking? If it is indeed Ebola, there will be a few more cases reported in the vicinity soon because several others were exposed without protective clothing to the body of the man. Especially since it wasn’t expected. The medical personnel and the people who carried him to the hospital and anyone else who touched him or came in contact with his body somehow. (more…)
