The race is on for the next Ghanaian celebrity who will own the luxurious iPhone 13 from global phone manufacturing company, Apple.
Sounds like a commercial of a competition right? That is because it is, well, only in my country Ghana.
In Ghana, our celebrities make the most basic of things (like buying a phone) a huge success in their lives and slap that in our faces on social media.
Trips to Dubai or any holiday destination, cars, clothes and jewelries, are some of the things they brag about forgetting that people have more but refuse to show off.
The new trend has began, and now Ghanaian celebrities are rushing to buy the latest iPhone 13 from Apple just to be in the headlines.
Fetish Priestess turned evangelist, Nana Agradaa also followed as the first female celebrity to have bought the phone.
She recorded a video singing songs of praise as if she had won a chance to pitch her business to Bill Gates in a meeting.
Next was the East Legon Landlady, the Boss Chick, BB the Borla Bird, Tracey Boakye who also bragged that she was a boss and leads every female celebrity in the country when it comes to riches.
We thought it was over but we saw celebrated Ghanaian broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah also joining the pack.
She did not record a video because she still has some respect for herself but she posted a photo of herself posing with the iPhone 13.
The Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max expected price start at GHS. 9,145 to GHS. 11,165 in Ghana and the average Ghanaian cannot afford that kind of luxury.
With our celebrities flaunting their new gadget, few weeks after its release, we know someone is busily trying to woo another person so they also can hold the phone.
