Victoria Hammah has been in the news again lately, after having gone a little quiet since the political scandal that led to her firing as Deputy Minister.
The recent case involved an alleged lover’s spat with her boyfriend, apparently over Vicky’s aggressive sexual demands which the boyfriend was incapable or unwilling to provide.
Well Vicky spoke to Bola Ray on the Starr Drive Monday, during which conversation she addressed several of the issues recent public attention has thrown out. But most crucially, Vicky revealed she was on the market now, and that she was searching for a new boyfriend.
“I am single and aggressively searching for a man” she told Bola Ray live on air. “I’m not getting any younger”
The arrest of her boyfriend led to several theories as to what might have happened, but Vicky seemed determined to put the incident behind her, reiterating that she was single now and whatever that happened had been blown widely out of proportion.
She also addressed the public perception of her that seemed to be that she only had good looks and a well proportioned body, but not much brains. She debunked all those, saying she was tired of hearing that and that people should give her a break; after all she got her PhD at age 27. (more…)
Information reaching GhanaCelebrities.Com suggests that the government of Ghana did not budget for the creative art industry in its 2014 fiscal budget.
Government for the first time made an allocation of GH¢2 million in the 2012 budget for the creative industry under the tenure of Ghana’s late President, Prof. Evans Fiifi Atta Mills. Disagreement erupted after it emerged that only members of the musicians union accessed the funds.
Following the disagreements over the money, President John Dramani Mahama, speaking at a meeting with selected members of the creative industry at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi ahead of the 2012 general elections, promised to increase government’s budgetary allocation to the sector in order that many will benefit.
He said, “I am just assuring that we are going to make another budgetary allocation more than the amount and you have to collectively come out with a blue print for investing it in the best way that will serve our purpose.”
True to Government’s promise, the Finance Minister, Seth Terkper, presenting the 2013 budget to parliament, announced that the government has allocated an amount of GH¢3 million to better the lot of the industry: “the creative arts industry will be supported with GH¢3 million in 2013,” he said.
It was reported that government budget for the creative art industry in its 2014 fiscal budget, however, 8 months gone by, GhanaCelebrities.Com gathers that government did not budget for the creative arts industry for the year 2014 – as we were made to believe.
According to our source “what the minister read in parliament is usually called policy direction to the budget. Whenever budget is read in Parliament, it does not mean that all the items mentioned have been costed. They are just policy direction to the budget.
“In the master budget of the finance ministry, there is no figure allocated specifically for the creative arts industry so if you guys in the creative arts industry or showbiz are waiting for any money like the 2 million you once received, you wait in vein! There is no money for you!” (more…)
As Cholera sweeps across Ghana, somehow having taken on epidemic proportions despite the fact we live in a twenty first century world; one often wonders what needs to happen for us to change our attitudes and perceptions.
But then you read something like the following Daily Graphic report and then you realise we would probably be stuck in theses our ancient mindsets of religion and superstition for a long time to come, and that mindset would continue to be detrimental to development and enlightenment so long as we apply it in the manner we do down here.
Residents of Anomabo, a fishing community in the Central Region, have revealed that two of their gods require that they defecate at the beaches. The reason, ostensibly, is that the gods use the faecal matter to produce fish for them.
These two gods who love faeces so much, are known as Ekitsaba and Obosanti. If the residents fail to comply, they revealed, these deities would get angry and they either get very low yield after fishing; or even in extreme cases they kill. (more…)
Scotland has voted NO to stay in the United Kingdom after voters decisively rejected independence. But I am not shocked and saw this coming…
As Peter Hitchens recently wrote “the poor Scots are threatened with currency collapse, bankruptcy, irrelevance and isolation” and for such bad tactics, the only reasonable real option that the Scots had in my estimation is a NO vote.
Who would have the balls to vote YES in the face of all these threats and surely, if the UK holds a referendum over its EU membership, I am sure the EU will employ this ridiculous tactics which works.
Currently, results in from all 32 council areas had the “No” side winning with 2,001,926 votes over 1,617,989 for “Yes”. (more…)
Well it is always a good thing when kids display ambition, though this three year old kid seems to have taken his to an extreme level, shocking everyone who was present when he made this solemn declaration.
Daily Guide reports that the District Chief Executive of Asuogyaman in the Eastern Region, Thomas Ampem Nyarko, had the shock of his life when a very young pupil responded to the question of “what do you want to be in future?”
The DCE and his entourage where on a tour of some schools in his district, on a program dubbed ‘My First Day at School’; which was embarked on annually to distribute some books and soft drinks to schools within his catchment area.
In an interaction with some pupils at one of the schools, the DCE asked the kid the question, who responded with his certainly unique answer of ‘armed robber’.
His reason was that he wanted to become rich; although when asked if he knew what armed robbers did the kid remained enigmatically silent. (more…)
Embittered family of Hiplife musician, Castro, real name Theophilus Tagoe, who is feared dead or missing, has confronted a spiritualist they once consulted to produce Castro within 7 days or face the family’s wrath.
On Saturday 6th September, 2014, one Prophet Samuel Baffoe, Founder of Elshadai Prayer Ministry, located in Spintex, revealed on Adom TV’s ‘Anansekrom’ that family of Castro consulted him to find out why Castro’s tragic fate and to find out if he is dead or alive.
Speaking to GhanaCelebrities.Com, Prophet Baffoe reiterated what he said on TV has caught the fury of Castro’s family. “Castro’s family consulted me some few weeks after the whole tragedy happened. I told them before I work on the issue they should go and meet another spiritualist because the case is a thorny one.
“I therefore directed them to a spiritualist and the things they heard into their own ears, they were shocked! The spiritualist disclosed to them that Castro has been consulting him. The man said he has been helping Castro to make hits!” Prophet Baffoe said. He further revealed that just after the show when he got out of the studio, Castro’s father called and threatened him.
“After that TV interview, Castro’s father called – haranguing on the phone out of fury, that why did I reveal on the show that they consulted me! Meanwhile, I did not go to the show to speak about Castro. The host asked me a question about Castro and Asamoah Gyan’s recent anger at a journalist and in answering I said Castro’s family consulted me. (more…)

Ghanaian actress and Television host – Joselyn Dumas – has launched the second phase of the “Xcholera campaign”. The campaign which started late August 2014 is to raise awareness on the outbreak of cholera in Ghana which had infected over 5000 people since June 2014 , and cases continue to increase daily.
The campaign, which was being run on social media has reached the second stage which involves market storms. With these market storms, the team goes out to educate the public on safe practices to avoid cholera. Target areas are markets, hospitals and small communities that are worst hit by the menace.
The campaign takes a different approach from the traditional cleaning up of dirty areas to the creation of awareness on why the public needs to practice personal and environmental hygiene. It is about sensitizing the public to understand the need to clean their environment and getting them committed to staying clean. (more…)
Before anything, shout Amen to this; God is good…all the time, all the time…God is God.
You wouldn’t expect people who have the blessings and wisdom of God to have such narrow outlook of this; but the Church seems to have succeeded in making the smartest of men think like a child.
Yesterday at this well positioned Christian Action Faith Ministries (CAFM), Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams proudly told his congregation that his prophecy concerning the rise of Ghana’s Cedi, as the Cedi will start picking up against the dollar by the end of August is happening—a clear indication that his prophecy is not false and it is manifesting right now
Earlier this year, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams through prayers commanded the Cedi to rise—and supported by his congregation, a big Amen was shouted. His cedi-rise command and prayer became talk of the town, with many calling him a visionless man leading a flock of sheep to the slaughterhouse. I support this assertion…
Duncan-Williams is reported to have said on Sunday; “…I told you that by the end of August, I saw a window of opportunity, remember? End of August, about the economy, and I said we should pray that we won’t miss that window, because if that window is shut, we are in trouble, and that from September going, things will start changing, you remember?”.
