Take a seat, relax, and watch the interview below…
Makose ( real name Eric Mensah) is recognized as one of the very few creative upcoming artistes who define indigenous African music to its core.
Makose combines the art of playing musical instruments with his song writing ability to make his brand complete. As an emerging artiste, he takes inspiration from Nigerian instrumentalist and musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, determined to help combat European cultural imperialism and promote Ghanaian/African culture through his songs.
If one has not listened to Makose’s songs before, his choice of outfits alone will draw attention to nothing but one – a promoter of Ghanaian/African products. It’s therefore not too surprising that he is doing music that focuses on upholding African culture – something many youths of his age wouldn’t consider doing.
His name Makose, which means mistake in Swahili, is a well-chosen name for what he truly stands for. According to him, he chose Makose (mistake) because he thinks Ghanaians/Africans have made a huge mistake by embracing the white man’s culture and neglecting what belongs to them (Ghanaians/Africans).
Makose, who is currently working on his upcoming debut album (scheduled to be launched in March 2015), has put out one video already titled ‘Fine Fine Woman.’ In the video, he talks about a young African woman who sleeps around with different men and its outcome, employing an African setting to depict the story.
Some of the songs on his forthcoming album include ‘Tears of Africa’, ‘My Woman’, ‘Ankwanoma’, and ‘I’m Ready.’
Few days ago, GhanaCelebrities.Com caught up with Makosa for a chit-chat. In the interview, he talked about his unending struggles in a bid to get his songs heard. Interestingly, he disclosed that he would have been a baker if he wasn’t doing music.
Currently, Makose is signed on to SM Mensah Entertainment. For bookings, you can contact his manager on 0244238500.

Currently, she may be perfectly defined as an Acoustic Soul Songstress but Stefanie Larmie has a bigger dream of merging Neo Soul and R&B with the trending Afro music—intending to create and define what she calls ‘Afro-Coustic’ music…

According to Kafui Danku, Happy Deathday which will be premiered on Friday-14th November, 2014 at the SilverBird Cinemas (Accra Mall & Weija) is a must watch movie, because the storyline is not like anything we’ve seen before…
When asked if she is not worried about the huge age gap between herself and her husband, she had an interesting answer for us…
We’ve had long talks about branding among Ghanaian celebrities many times—if there is one young actress out there who understands branding, it must be Nuong Faalong. And that’s why GhanaCelebrities.Com caught up with her to throw more light on her journey so far as an actress.
She also had some new pictures to share—and I am finding it hard to choose my favourite out of them. So gorgeous, all covered up and still totally breathtaking. Keep reading!
GC: Who is Nuong?
“Nuong is every woman. Haha! But everything you see is 20% . The major deal goes on beyond what you see and that’s how it should be. I am myself completely and I am every woman when the need arises”
GC: Where exactly are you from and where did you school?
“I am Dagarti and I studied at Aburi Girls’ and then in Legon”
GC: We are aware youou are one of the UNAIDS young ambassadors, how do you blend that with acting?
“That’s easy. Everyone has a heart and that heart must be put to use to feel and reach out to people who need you. The typical actress is empathetic and that gives her an extra big heart. We exist to reach out and make the world better. I have an anti-hiv campaign that has been going on for a while with great response. The message is simple, use protection! And that’s how UNAIDS recruited me. When I have the least break, I try to propagate that message”

We tried our luck by throwing in personal questions and ‘hurray’ we got an answer. We framed the question like this; “With you and Director-Shirley Frimpong Manso being a couple, how do you balance private life with the works the two of you do at Sparrow Productions—where do you two draw the lines so that you don’t bring the occasional morning disagreements that take place in every relationship at home to the office?”.

You know what; watch the full interview below to hear all he had to say…

From across the world, about 2000 short films out of the high thousands of applications made were accepted to be part of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. And at my hotel were two Norwegian young film students-Ole Elverhøi & Marius Myrmel whose short film was among those accepted.
You should be able to imagine the joy on their faces to be part of 67th Cannes Film Festival, the biggest film market in the world—considering their ages and the fact that this is their first short film.
Since they were staying in my hotel, I took time out to watch their short film-Without You and even brought in Fred Nuamah, Founder/CEO of Ghana Movie Awards to watch it too—and we all agreed that the quality of the production is far beyond anything we’ve seen in Ghana.
