TV personality & Adams Apples’ star-Joselyn Dumas is headlining our photos of the day, with that bright yellow skirt and down-looking pose which leaves the shadow of her hips intact!
Actress-Nadia Bauri has also been going in for the ruff ryder appearances and this time, she is seen on a bad bike, probably, looking to join fast and furious 7—the bike version.
Check below for a shot of Nikki Samonas too… (more…)
The ALS ice bucket challenge was meant to be a simple and fun way of raising awareness for a debilitating and terminal illness. Ever since the campaign started, a lot of money and awareness has been raised for Lou Gehrig’s disease. The ALS research center at Johns Hopkins University has reported over 80% increase in its endowments. We all hope to hear of a cure for this debilitating and terminal illness soon.
The purpose of the challenge was to raise awareness and MONEY for ALS research. That’s exactly what the challenge has accomplished. Yes, a lot of people have used the challenge as nothing but a popularity stunt, but it does not withhold the fact a lot more people know about ALS now than they did a month ago.
Back in our neck of the woods, things are completely different. All over Instagram, countless of Ghanaian celebrities have uploaded pictures of videos of themselves, pouring buckets of ice cold water on themselves. A lot of these local champions wear weaves. I always thought the number rule for wearing weave was: Never get it wet! I guess that’s beside the point. After pouring ice cold water on themselves, these “celebrities” claim they plan on donating money to a local NGO in Ghana because there is NO ALS society in Ghana-as if we did not know that already. As much as I’d like to congratulate them for being abreast with current affairs and helping fight a good cause, I cannot pretend. How many of these local champions support a local charity?
Our love of everything Western is shameful and crippling. Joselyn Dumas took to twitter to bash her fellow stars for their “ignorance.” A lot of people were proud of her. These same people who did not agree with Ama K Abebrese’s skin bleaching campaign, but who am I to judge?!
Joselyn’s campaign, although a good start, is an impractical solution to a serious problem. Cholera is caused by filth! Everywhere you look, our gutters are filled with garbage and feces. Instead of starting a campaign where individuals post pictures of themselves with their mouths covered, and the inscription, “I’d rather starve than eat contaminated food.” How about I suggest something practical? CLEAN THE FILTH AROUND YOU. (more…)
Some of our favourite celebrities have shared various out and about photos of themselves—and Yvonne Okoro in particular shared an interesting video.
Few years down the line after being BASHED on GhanaCelebrities.Com for that FAKE ACCENT, Yvonne Okoro seems to have taken over from Nadia Buari as our British born American celebrity, living in Thailand, worked in Australia, married to a half Chinese and half Japanese–therefore with such a messed up accent which she continues to proudly put out there…
It sad how our celebrities are everything in this world but themselves…
Check below for the video + photos of Juliet Ibrahim, Eazzy,Sarkodie, Menaye Donkor and others… (more…)
Thinking alongside Chris-Vincent’s article which questions the rationale behind the actions of the various African Celebrities who have taken on the ASL Ice Bucket Challenge when they are not donating any money to the cause—and when we have other pressing needs in Africa, Ghanaian actress Joselyn Dumas and singer-Irene Logan have also spoken out…
Joselyn Dumas took to twitter to say, we have several pressing needs in Africa but our celebrities have decided to jump on the ASL Ice Bucket Challenge, forgetting what our true problems are. She mentioned Malaria, Ebola and others as more serious and close to home than ASL.
In fact, she challenged her social media users who did not agree with her message to show her one person who had died instantly of ALS in Africa nd she will show them thousands dying of Malaria each day.
See her tweets below…
Singer-Irene Logan also had something to say about the way some Ghanaian Celebrities have taken charge of the ASL Ice Bucket Challenge. See what she wrote below… (more…)
Some of your favourite celebrities have been up to a lot this week and we bring their social media photos sharing activities to you—once again.
Jackie Appiah must love her Dior as she continues to share photos, buying more and more of the expensive brand. And Jackie is rocking a new hair too…
Check below for photos from Joselyn Dumas, Nadia Buari, Yvonne Nelson, Yvonne Okoro and others… (more…)
I was sent a link to a Hollywood Reporter article which looked at how Hollywood is struggling to find the next Denzel Washington (a major black movie star), now that Denzel is being faded out as a result of old age.
I couldn’t miss the connection and the fact that the Ghanaian Movie Industry is somewhat in the same pickle, although caused by a different element. While Denzel Washington, 59 is at the edge of dropping from the big roles as the only standing black actor due to old age, Will Smith, 45 and Eddie Murphy, 53 cannot be said to be perfect stand-in candidates considering their ages too, the article noted.
Jackie Appiah and Denzel Washington may not have anything in common, except that they can both call themselves actors—even with that, one acts for a third world movie industry which struggles to sell its movies to its own people, while the other is a box office champion with an undisputed international status.
The truth is; Jackie Appiah has held the Ghanaian Movie Industry together with her face and acting (even if we find her acting substandard) for many years—and calling her the true face of the contemporary Ghana Movie Industry would not be a far-fetched rank. Perhaps, she is the most bankable Ghanaian actress—even as of today.
I do not have the exact total number of awards she has to her name but I am yet to meet anyone who will disagree with me that she holds more awards than that of any two of her colleagues put together. She has done it all—-from the strict VCD days to the booming era of movie premieres that took over the capital cities, Jackie Appiah was the poster girl.
There was a time most film-makers couldn’t imagine taking the risk of shooting a movie without having her as their lead—not simply because she was exceptionally good but because, she brought in the sales and having her face on your movie guaranteed a smile to the bank.
Though she could not score any great point with her brand, she remains the strongest, well-kept and untainted Ghanaian Movie star brand we’ve seen in recent times—and she has enjoyed the spark of glamour more than even those who rejuvenated the industry she later became part of… (more…)
We have had enough of Yvonne Nelson’s bleaching and her counter claims of not bleaching talks….And yet, she continues to discuss this.
Some of us have made our minds up that home-girl has changed her complexion and no level of discrediting can change this.
Someone who recently worked with Yvonne Nelson on set had to this to say “Chris, I know and saw that Yvonne Nelson has tampered with her complexion but can you guys give her other side a little attention instead of her complexion”.
All the same, Joselyn Dumas sat down with Yvonne Nelson recently for her TV show “@ home with Joselyn Dumas” and as usual, the bleaching talk came flying through.
Yvonne is still hiding behind that defensive wall—when most of us have given up on her complexion. At the end of the day, it is her goddam business—just that we won’t be easily deceived.
I watched the video and the only question I asked myself is; so Yvonne Nelson is happy with how she looks huh?
Check out what Yvonne Nelson had to say… (more…)
Several African celebrities have in the past faced diatribes from their fans for failing to appear at events which they’ve been advertised as guests—when in fact, these celebrities did not even know or had no appearance contract with organizers of such events.
Ghanaian actress/TV personality-Joselyn Dumas has been advertised through several online publications as a Fashion Ambassador for an upcoming event-Africa Park Show to be held in South Africa, starting 19th September to 21st September, 2014—but GhanaCelebrities.Com has gathered; Joselyn Dumas has not been booked for the above appearance.
Speaking to Joselyn Dumas, she mentioned that the organizers made contact with her team to have her at their event but negotiations seems to have failed or have not been concluded. It is therefore shocking that the organizers have proceeded without her consent or any sort of enforceable agreement to use her name in their advertisement as a Fashion Ambassador for their event.
If nothing at all, Joselyn Dumas is worried about the total disrespect the organizers have accorded her brand and their attempt to gain financially by using her face and name in their advertisements, a clear breach of her Rights of publicity.
What most Event organizers do not recognise in Africa is, they can be sued for using someone else’s name, likeness, or other personal attributes without permission for an exploitative purpose—just like the above. (more…)
Sandra Ankobiah has established herself as an attention seeking individual who rides on the fame of others, to stay relevant—and attack others to stay in the news, thinking that makes her the shizzle…
She shot to fame as Yvonne Nelson’s handbag, following the actress everywhere—including when she wanted to poop.
At the time, Yvonne Okoro and Yvonne Nelson were good friends but their friendship could not survive the competition, the gossip and the jealousy so the two fell apart. After the famous breakup, Sandra Ankobiah maintained her position as Yvonne Nelson’s side kick—but only for a while.
She changed gears after she reportedly got into a hot argument with Yvonne Nelson. She quickly moved on, this time, she has become Yvonne Okoro’s butt-licker, fighting wars for Okoro and siding with the actress even when it is obvious that Yvonne Okoro is wrong.
According to a report by Razz Newspaper, the same Sandra Ankbobiah has jumped onto the neck of beautiful actress/TV personality-Joselyn Dumas, gossiping and backstabbing her over what God only knows…Yvonne Okoro and Joselyn Dumas have not been spotted together for a long time and I wouldn’t be shocked if the two are living on a battle field.
If that is the case, then that should explain why Sandra Ankobiah is taking a hit at Joselyn Dumas—still fighting her madam’s war for her.
Apparently, there is a growing tension between Sandra Ankobiah and Joselyn Dumas and Razz Newspaper has the inside gist…
What Sandra probably forgets all the time is that, Ghana is too damn small and the people you keep stabbing others with, will definitely out you…
Read below for what Razz Newspaper which comes out every Wednesday had to say…
In the world of show business, there always exist issues of in-fighting, bickering, back-biting, gossip, hatred and envy amongst the main players especially the female entertainers.
Over the years, there have been reports of rift between female Ghanaian celebrities including the documented squabbles between Jackie Appiah and Nadia Buari, Yvonne Nelson and Jackie Appiah as well as reported fall-out between the likes of Jocelyn Dumas and Yvonne Okoro and of course, the famous wrangle between ‘frenemies’ Sandra Ankobiah and Yvonne Nelson.

Some will say certain modern Ghanaian women are becoming liberal and others will say, they are becoming cheap—depending on where you sit on the throne…
Last Friday, actress/TV personality-Josselyn Dumas joined a host of others on Joy Fm to discuss the topic “can a man and a woman be just friends”.
Joselyn is reported on Joy Fm to have said that, “ sometimes sex could be needed to test if a relationship is possible”.
She added that, “I think that when there is a tag in a relationship, it becomes a problem, then the expectations are quiet high, but when you have a friend with benefits you see how it goes, if it goes well, and we eventually decides that we are going to take it a step further, Kudos, but once this is my boyfriend, this is my girlfriend or am married, there is that pressure, I don’t personally like that, so I will have a friend with benefit”.

It looks like we will be seeing more of our Ghanaian female celebrities living their dreams in movies this year—getting that white wedding but in a movie.
We’ve put together some recent photos of Jackie Appiah, Joselyn Dumas, Yvonne Okoro and Christabel from movie sets where they play brides and we want to know this; who is that perfect looking bride?
Interestingly, all these women will want this in real life—and we pray they get that soon. At least until it happens, their careers allow them to live their dream for few minutes…
But among them all, I think Christabel Ekeh will get a white wedding first—in real life!
Check below for the photos… (more…)
Those who thought Nana Ama McBrown and boyfriend-Maxwell Mensah’s relationship was not going to last, the couple are still going stronger—having lived to see the end of Keitta and Eazzy’s relationship as well as that of Nadia Buari and Jim Iyke.
As a woman, it feels great to see two people drunk in love just as that developing affair between Joselyn Dumas and John Dumelo.
Let me add this, Efya must have good and bad ‘ boobies days’ since her chest size increases and decreases—depending on the day.
Anyway, check out the photos below… (more…)
