Ghana Music Awards

 

Gospel musician Cecilia Marfo, High Life crooner Kwabena Kwabena and Hip Life artiste Trigmatic has come on top of the Ghana Music Awards Festival 2011 nominations.

They both grabbed 6 nominations each with their songs ‘Afunumu Ba’, ‘Dadea Anoma’ and ‘My Life’ respectively. The launch ceremony which was marred by the torrential rains had No Tribe, Castro, VIP and D-Black with 5 nominations each.

New discoveries Eazzy, Jay and Herty Bongreat both had four nominations each. The general public can now vote for their favourite artiste. Interesting, VIP’s ‘I Think I Like Am’ which was nominated in the ‘Afro Pop Song of the Year’ in the last year’s awards before they opted out has missed out and has been replaced by their ‘Away’ track.

New Music Video: Eazzy Feat Richie “One Gal”, Still Lacking Creativity!

Richie & Eazzy
Richie & Eazzy

Eazzy’s “Wengeze” video was a massive flop and suffered serious criticisms from fans and other music lovers, especially GhanaCelebrities.Com readers.

I was expecting her “One Gal” video to come out and make a good impression but Eazzy and her Lynxx Entertainment crew have once again disappointed me.

It is far better than “Wengeze” but lacks the creativity and the catch attention-appeal to make it to any international platform. Who has been directing these videos?

The concept is a borrowed one; maybe the concept is too common or familiar in music videos and movies thereby making me not to see anything new or extraordinary with the video.

Director “Leila Djansi” & Turning Point Pictures Issue A Statement On The On-Going Debate About “Ties That Bind & Its Hollywood Image”….

Leila Djansi

We have been informed of a certain Kathy bent on discrediting our work. We don’t remember issuing any press release on the movie we are working on.

Any press statement on the film is subjective and does not reflect the views of Turning Point Pictures or its affiliates. We would appreciate it if Miss Kathy (if this is her true identity) will refrain from citing examples with a film that is in development.

There are reputable cast and crew involved in the project because they believe in it, not because of its association to any industry or person. The strength of a story is not derived from its associations, but from its own ability to be original and inspiring.

One of the pioneers of the Ghana Movie Industry, Hammond Mensah of H. M. Films is ready to premiere and release to the general public it’s latest action packed thriller movie with the title ‘Who Own Da City’.

Watching the movie with fellow entertainment journalists with an eagle eye, it was clear why Mr. Hammond Mensah had invested so much in the movie, it was because he needed to make an impact after several years of being on the quiet.

Also, I believe it was a call to his other producers that, indeed movies such as ‘Who Owns Da City’ can be produced down here in Ghana.

All over the world, celebrities are “species” of mankind with strong love for attention; they continuously seek for media coverage when it is favourable to them. The fame of almost every celebrity is heavily embedded in PR strategies which are fully dependant on the media.

Believe it or not, the media play an indispensable role in making and unmaking a celebrity in every part of the world. In fact, celebrities to a greater extent owe their existence to the media and this is evident from the intertwined relationship between the two, leaving the former without any private room to operate.

‘Twixted’, First Ghana & Liberia Movie To Be Premiered At TV3 Executive Theatre…

blank

When one wants to watch an African movie, its either Ghanaian or Nigerian movie that comes in mind. I have always complained, advocated and shown my strong aversions to the TV stations in Ghana for only showing Ghanaian and Nigerian movies when actually it’s supposed to be African movies slot. My argument has always been that movies from the above named countries alone do not represent Africa. We need to be presented with what the other African countries are also doing in terms of movies.

Over the years African movie fanatics have been introduced with collaborations from the Ghanaian and Nigerian movie industries. This movement has promoted both industries not only in those two countries but beyond the shores of Africa. Two heads indeed is better than one.

Africans are about to be introduced to another collaboration which if guarded well will go a long way to benefit those industries. Liberians naturally likes Ghanaian movies and it wasn’t surprise that they are collaborating with the Ghanaian movie Industry.

Is Ga Rapper Tinny Divorcing His Wife Over Nagging?

blank
Tinny

The name Tinny is synonymous to hard core Ga rap. It is a name known by every music lover in Ghana. Even though the rapper has paid his quota to the hip life game, tagging him as the best Ga lyricist or best Ga rapper in Ghana will be contentious or highly laughable, at least from where I’m standing.

There is no competition for Tinny now and from the viewpoint of many, he looks jaded, lack focus and probably looking for an early retirement from the game; others also believe that he is on top of his game for the simple reason that he is the only rapper currently rapping in Ga. It’s very glaring that nobody rules when there is no competition for the person to prove himself.

Reports say Khareema has been in love with the guy for some time now and has openly threatened to teach him a few lessons. Sources close to her told News-One that one of her favorite warnings to the guy has been: “You, I will f**k you one day paa.”“And true to her threats, she recently went out with the guy and when they got to her apartment, she put some Spanish Fly in his drink; it made him start to feel for sex and she showed him some moves that he could not resist … they got into bed and she indeed taught him a few lessons”, News-One was told.
