Ghanaian actress Jackie Appiah just landed in Milan, Italy few hours ago—and she shared the above photo with her fans accompanied by the message; Hello Milan…
Career-wise, the year has been pretty slow for Jackie Appiah and this has somewhat given her the opportunity to be touring around. We’ve seen photos of her holidaying at different parts of the world.
For those of you who like to insult Joselyn Dumas with her BIG FOREHEAD, the actress/TV personality seems to be aware that her forehead is out of proportion—and today, she shared a photo with her forehead in focus alongside the message;#bigforeheadsdontcare

Joselyn Dumas is known for many things, one of which is her fervor to get things done right. She’s been at the top of the entertainment industry crops since shooting to fame in 2009. Recently, she launched a campaign – the “Xcholera Campaign” – to create awareness on the outbreak of cholera (a disease typically transmitted by consuming either contaminated food or water).
The first phase of the campaign which was ran on social media caught the attention of majority of Ghanaians (both home and abroad), as well as other foreign nationals on various social media sites.
The second phase of the entire campaign was launched yesterday (September 17, 2014) at the Okaishie market. The launch attracted countless individuals who live in cholera-prone areas.
According to Miss Dumas, “the phase two of the campaign encompasses embarking on market storms to educate market women on the need to keep their surroundings clean in order not to contract cholera.”
“This campaign is geared towards changing attitudes of Ghanaians in relation to cleanliness. It is not a one-off campaign. It is something that my team and I will embark on till we see a positive change in societies”, Joselyn added.
She stated that, her team and herself are making use of market Queens in educating those in the market. As she put it, “the market queens are the opinion leaders in the market. Their voices carry weight and people in the market heed to what they say. It is therefore advisable to make use of them to achieve the goal we require at the moment.” (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…)
Eazzy has been rocking a new short hair and even though we do not REALLY like it—she says, she is feeling it. For us out here, the long hair style sits well with Eazzy and because we’ve known her more with that, we seem to like her that way.
Becca and Efya have been putting their figures on blast, except that one has something more enticing to show us and the other needs to work that body out if she wants to go into a bodycon.

Peace Fm has published some photos from the recently held MUSIGA Grand Ball and interestingly, some of the photos show ace broadcaster-Kwami Sefa Kayi massaging Joselyn Dumas’ foot—putting her fine thigh on full display…
The two were the MCs of the night—and they seem to have enjoyed each other’s company not only stage but also back stage.
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.

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…

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.

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…)
