After a blockbuster pilot that I’m sure by now has hooked many people, ‘Guy Guy’ returns with another solid episode as it begins its 13 week mission to steal the heart and soul of Ghanaians…
Building a cult following is important for the survival of any television series in this day and age of a very saturated media environment. In the US, which in many ways is the pinnacle of the entertainment industry, there are many shows that lingered for long and outlived their projected shelf lives because of a rabid following that simply refused to let go.
‘Fringe’ and ‘Rules of Engagement’, two personal favourites of mine, simply refused to die despite projected doom year after year by critics, just because that first tranche of followers stubbornly hang on and kept ratings at an appreciable level for the bosses.
The situation is not exactly parallel here, simply because ‘Guy Guy’ is just miles ahead of most of the competition, but what I see from the limited viewing I have seen is that this show would build a cult following, which would linger long after it has gone from our screens.
And only one man would be responsible for that, main character Kalybos. He already has the cult following from his ‘Boys Kasa’ series, and his antics in ‘Guy Guy’ mirror those so much that it’s inevitable most of those would cross over.
Hence the title for this piece, which of course can only occur from a Kalybos antic. The eccentric genius from episode one runs into Kaakie in a chance meeting on the street, but with all the embellishments only Kalybos can bring to a scene.
After Kaakie’s car nearly run over our hero, he started some spirited acting, perhaps hoping to glean some ‘coins’ from the near accident. So there he was hopping about and generally making a scene, despite the car never touching him, until he turned about and came face to face with who the driver of the car actually was.
Immediately, Kalybos turned into a fangirl, literally. Amazingly, he turned the situation into a ploy to get Kaakie’s number. How he does that though, and the hilarity imbibed in there, is the highlight of the episode for me- and why you must watch to also learn ‘how to get a celebrity’s number’
The episode title, ‘Church Girl, refers to the Legonite Derby, played by Nikki Samonas. Somehow despite having two onscreen boyfriends and perhaps others we do not know about, she put on a typical ‘Chrife’ air after running into one half of Keche. Using that to solicit a lift, it turned out just to be a ploy to get to a pseudo date with Kalybos, with the bemused Keche in the same restaurant and somehow baffled at the unexpected turn of events.
He confronted her later, in a strong scene for Derby. Samonas plays the part well, but the whole scenario with Keche seemed a little forced.
The opposite is noticeable in a scene with Kenya the aspiring rapper and his friend Kwame. Kwame, another of Derby’s enamoured boyfriends, had been arrested for talking to her whilst driving in the first episode. After being bailed out by Kenya, he was given a stern talking to, but he was too in the clouds about his ‘obroni’ girlfriend to give a fig about what his friend was telling him. The dialogue was a little stilted, which is often my biggest gripe about local shows; the dialogue never seems organic. Often the scenario is right, but the dialogue lets it down.
But Kenya saved it later, when he encountered Kobby and his broken down car. The musician needed a battery, but the aspiring musician had other ideas. He would only acquiesce if Kobby agreed to help his music career. Of course the latter sent him on his way, making it the second week in the row Kenya had been kicked to the curb by a famous person- he really needs to change his methods.
Which nearly concludes another strong episode of ‘Guy Guy’. Not as strong, nor as funny, as the pilot, but still a pretty solid effort. The guest stars this week, Keche and Kaakie were both good, and there was an unreal moment with Keche when the writers broke the fourth wall, which I’m sure a lot of people would find hilarious.
Kalybos ended the episode at the airport, waiting for his uncle to drop from ‘Amanone’. The ever green Master Richard, and Kofi Wayo, would be the big attractions of next week’s episode.

Juliet Ibrahim was near sand bathed at the beach—not really though! She was looking like a pretty Queen sitting in the sand and we love the photo.
Martha Ankomah as usual kept it decent, beautiful and simple while the Queen of Bikinis-Nikki Samonas, is back with a Bikini.
And we have another fab shot of musicians-Efya and Mzbel…

The debate over the soon to be implemented TV license fee brings into sharp relief one of the biggest problems with broadcasting in Ghana which we often sweep under the carpet– the largely dross programming Ghanaians have to deal with.
The argument largely, which I agree with, is that shoveling the money of Ghanaians into the hands of these people gives us no guarantee of improved programming.
Luckily, there is a programme on the horizon that would, in the short term at least, brightly improve the landscape on GTV, who we can all agree does not have the brightest of landscapes. ‘Guy Guy’ is the new star studded, hilarious, and pseudo real world show on the horizon that is guaranteed to brighten your day.

Christabel Ekeh is back with her chocolate complexion and long ‘wind’ blowing weave in a new photo—and we love it.
The young actress who has risen to become a household name in the Ghanaian movie industry just a few years after she showed up is set to take a bigger challenge in the coming months, GhanaCelebrities.Com has learnt.
Yvonne Nelson is looking beautiful and as usual Ama K. Abebrese is back with her African print.
We also have a recent photo of Nikki Samonas, Nana Ama McBrown and musician-Becca.

Ama K. Abebrese loves her African print—and we have the above photo plus another of her (below), doing justice to our local print. She is back on her short hair—which some call it; the nurse style.
Nadia Buari is looking good—perhaps, motherhood is what brings out the best in some people. We didn’t really see her post baby weight.
We also have photos of Mzbel, Nikki Samonas, Afia Schwarzenegge & others…

John Dumelo is still chilling out in the United States—posing by the beach with his hands wide opened. Do you want to know who took that picture? THINK!
We also have a photo of Deloris Frimpong Manso (Delay)—and Nikki Samonas wearing the usual, a bikini. Sister Deborah shows her abs while cuddling a cute rabbit in one of the blow photos.

Don’t underestimate the purchasing power of rich men—they mostly buy the precious looking ornaments and this is exactly what Kenpong has done with Mona aka Hajia4Real who continues to wow her many social media followers with photos of her fab lifestyle made possible by her rich boyfriend.
Jackie Appiah is as usual looking fab in the below photo—with Yvonne Okoro also having over edited her photo but still looking good.
Mzbel shows a little much of her chest in a new photo and we are indifferent about Nikki Samonas.

Actress-Nikki Samonas says she is the ‘Queen of Bikini’ and it doesn’t matter what some of you continue to say about her, she loves to flaunt her body…
So the actress claims she went for bikini shopping today—and when she was struggling to decide which of the two to buy, she took to social media to solicit for help.
It may be too late but we think, the black is a better option!
How long is Nikki Samonas going to give us the torment or pleasure of her bikini shots—depending on your taste, her many bikini photos may be loved or hated.
The actress has shared once again some bikini shots—and we think, she mistakenly took to the beach a granny bikini belonging to her 105 years old grandmother. In fact, we saw her granny buying this high-waisted bikini after the old citizens club last week.
We think Nikki Samonas should become an underwear and swim wear model since she loves her bikinis and underwears.

Ghanaian musician-Becca stepped out last night to a birthday party and she did put those enviable curves on display in a black bodycon dress she wore.
Since Becca’s split with her longtime manager-Kiki Banson, she has been spotted more and more outside—and importantly, the fans are waiting to see how her next song without Kiki will go.
We also have a photo of Eazzy with a big dog behind her and another of Nikki Samonas.

The self-imposed Ghanaian bikini queen is back in the news again. This time, it’s not about exposing her ‘big’ butts in a bikini which is in competition with that of Joselyn Dumas and the others. Rather, she talks about people minding their own businesses and keeping mute about the way she chooses to dress.
According to Nikki (in an interview with Graphic Showbiz), she is not bothered about what people say about the provocative way she dresses. She goes on to say that since she is minding her own business, her critics, including Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts – Mrs Dzifa Abla Gomashie – should also do same.
“Every celebrity has his/her strategy for remaining relevant in the public eye so if flashing some flesh would get me the needed attention, I cannot be bothered by people’s differing opinions. Yvonne Nelson catches attention with her legs, Joselyn Dumas with her hips, so if the way I dress will do the trick for me why not,” she told the newspaper. (more…)
