Michael Jackson’s “This Is It”-Ghanacelebrities.com’s Review

blankWhen the King of Pop released his ground breaking album “Thriller” I wasn’t even born then. When he released his follow up album “Bad,” I was all but a toddler and understandably, was oblivious to all the mania surrounding the musical genius. However, as I grew older it was impossible to shake off the impression his music had on me.

Michael Jackson is a legend who personifies perfection-his brilliance, fame and success shall never ever be equaled. On the heels of his death, like bona fide fans around the world, I struggled to come to terms with his death. I tried to find some meaning and understanding out of everything “Michael Jackson.” The new Michael Jackson movie “This Is It” reinstates why he is and will forever be the Greatest Entertainer of all times.

Ghanaian Stars And Weight

blank

One of the elements that define an African woman’s beauty is her weight. When it comes to our culture voluminous is the acceptable norm. Unfortunately, this has manifested into a disturbing prevalent mentality among most Ghanaian women as most feel the need to be to heavyset irrespective of compromising their health. Ghanaian stars are not immune to this mentality.

The usual pattern is that once a star achieves some respectable level of fame, they just start piling on the pounds. Weight gain unfortunately, is usually associated with success. It is indeed pathetic the length most will go to gain weight; this includes, but not limited to binge eating or taking pills that places their health at risk. The downside to this is that some people are uneducated on the various diseases associated with weight gain.

Who Is The ‘Real’ Mad Man And The ‘Perceive’ Mad Man? Kwaw Kese or Okomfour

What do these two people have in common? Madness? I think what they have in common transcends ‘mere’ madness. ‘Abodam’ means mad or crazy, I can’t say for sure who introduced that phrase into the Ghana Music Industry but the mention of that word brings in mind one person. He was seen carrying banner that read ‘Welcome Back’ on the stage at Okomfour’s welcome back show at the National Theatre and that says a lot about what they have in common. Like a friend said he’s welcoming back his ‘mad’ partner.

Obrafour Can ‘Piss in’ or ‘Piss out’

blank
Obrafour

Is this a new madness that has taken the music industry by stomp? Or perhaps it is a publicity stunt to get the inactive artistes on board to announce to their teeming fans that they are after all not worn-outs or are back from their hideouts?

Chale this madness has gone on for far too long now? By the way who is Obrafour anyway? He is known to be coming out with proverbs in his lyrics but no disrespect some people have finally taken hip life to the gutters. Without sounding remorseful and vulgar, I think Obrafour should just shut up, if he is jaded (sounds like it), he should take a rest and not create unnecessary controversy.

When Nigeria fails, Ghana leads

There are always unending arguments between Ghana and Nigeria raised by readers no matter the subject at hand. Be it entertainment, sports or political. Readers never fail to defend these two countries respectively, with one claiming supremacy over the other.

If you doubt it, read the comments written under articles like this, this one and that one. Or maybe a story like this. This very article was written by a Nigerian newspaper, Guardian.

blankWE like to believe that Nigeria is the giant of Africa, the continental Leviathan who has the power, influence and oil money to command the respect of other African countries. I am not too sure there is still any basis for such claims. What we think about Nigeria is not exactly the same as how other countries think about us. What we hold in our imagination is quite different from the real situation in Nigeria.

Yvonne Nelson And John Dumelo: Stop Lying To Your Fans.

Yvonne Nelson and John Dumelo

What some of our dear celebrities put in the media for their fans is sometimes very absurd. I marvel if they think we are acute mentally constipated and cannot digest any given information scrupulously or what. Before I proceed, I will like to clearly say to these celebrities; we are not dim-witted at all so stop lying to us.

Kwaw Kese Slaps Obour

blank
Kwaw Kese

I am not a fun of Kwaw Kese’s constant attacks on his fellow hip life artistes and bickering in the music industry, but I believe without it, there won’t be any news for the entertainment journalists to write (based on hunch).

Rapper and self acclaimed king of the streets Kwaw Kese is at it again, this time around, he has slapped Obour and co for thinking hip life is dead and consequently resurrecting it.

The Ghana Nigeria Rivalry

blankA recently published article on this site titled “Nigeria to Send Ghana to the Cleaners” has sparked such frenzy; I find the whole hullabaloo pathetic to say the least. However, the scary aspect of this whole uproar is that, it has weeded out the deeply rooted hatred between these two countries. The callous exchange of words between readers is not only condescending, it sometimes borders ignorance.

blank

Tommorrow is September 11, and it marks 8 years of the coordinated suicide attacks by Al-Qaeda upon the United States on September 11, 2001. On that morning, 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the buildings.

Nigeria To Send Ghana To the Cleaners

blankIf the signal we are picking now is the right, then Ghanaian producers must sit up, watch out and get their arsenals ready for a showdown as their Nigerian counterparts are in a secret meeting to get them (Ghanaian producers) out of the movie market.

The primary aim of this secret meeting is to hatch a plan to flood the market with only Nigeria movies hence getting the Ghanaian producers out of job. Venus Films Production producer Abdul Salam Mumuni, whose first film was God Loves Prostitutes, which brought Nollywood superstar Genevieve Nnaji to Ghana and is responsible for the discovery of Van Vicker, Jackie Aygemang, Nadia Buari, Eddie Nartey and still discovering more talents is their prime target.

Why Can’t Ghanaian Contestants Win International Pageants?An Investigative Report

blankEver since Araba Martha Vroom (1967), Akuba Cudjoe (1999), Lamisi Mbillah (2006), Irene and Akosua Boatemaa Dwomo (2007) reached the semi-final stages of the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants respectively, no Ghanaian contestant has ever made it beyond these stages. A negligible feat, nonetheless worthy of mentioning was when Ms. Angela Asare was voted Miss Congeniality at the 2006 Miss Universe pageant. Other than that, no Ghanaian representative has had any substantial success at these international pageants.

The Perfect Picture: Is That Your Idea of Civilization?

blankAn article published on this site a couple of weeks ago caught my attention. I was not intrigued by its content, but by the responses it provoked. I was indifferent as I was not at the receiving end of these criticisms. However, I was compelled to write this article based on the rationale behind the critiques of the article. I am personally not adverse to criticism (my articles have drawn their fair share, as a matter of fact, I feed on them), It is something that I encourage and appreciate deeply. But, it gets scary when the critiques seem to be coming from a tainted perception.
