Broken heart is never a fun thing to go through but it is a fact of life that everyone must learn to deal with. The way you react to a failed relationship, whether you are male or female, is actually a very good indicator of how mature you are as a person.
In that vein it’s, easy to see that most of our celebrities are actually children lucky enough to be bestowed with fame, because the way they react whenever a relationship goes wrong is extremely juvenile.
There are countless number of female Ghanaian celebrities scattered all over the corridors of this country. Truth is many of these ladies have little or no talent at all. There are a few of them who are blessed and gifted with enormous talent that accompanies their beauty. One of such talents is Actress Nadia Sidiku Buari, the daugther of former Musician Union Of Ghana president Mr. Sidiku Buari.

The annual prestigious Ghana Movie Awards (MAG) which is slated for 30th December, 2015 at the Accra International Conference Centre has opened for entries—with the deadline for submission being November 20.
At a press soiree last night at Oak Plazza Hotel in Accra, the founder/CEO of MAG-Fred Kwaku Nuamah who was also celebrating his 40th birthday told a group of journalists this year’s awards will lift the already established desirable benchmark as its new partner-Silhouette Advertising is well positioned to add the needed extra excellence.
Ahead of the 5th Ghana Movie Awards to be held on 30th December, 2014—the organizers have released some promo photos featuring Ghanaian star actress-Jackie Appiah and John Dumelo.
Per the Ghana Movie Awards 2014 official calendar, submission of movies starts on 5th September with public voting commencing on 3rd November.
A Nominees Jam at a Cocktail Event has been slated for 7th November at the MovenPick Hotel—and the academy will start voting on 1st December, 2014.
In its 5th year, what many industry persons and observers are looking forward to is a well organised event with no pre or post event discrepancies, which mostly taint the vision and purpose of the annual event.
Mr. Fred Nuamah (Founder/CEO of Ghana Movie Awards) has stated that a lot has been learned from the past years and as such, things will be better served this year…
Razz Newspaper is reporting that, the founder of Ghana Movie Awards has instructed anyone who has not received his or her plaque as a winner of any of the awards’ editions should call him and pick up one.
The Newspaper contacted Fred Nuamah when veteran actress-Grace Nortey made it clear on radio some few days ago, that she has not yet received an award she won in 2012.
Check below for the conversation the Newspaper had with Fred Nuamah. Razz Newspaper comes out every Wednesday so don’t forget to grab a copy.
For the Ghana Movie Awards, every year comes with accompanying issues and controversies; from poor organization of the event to winners not receiving their plaques/statuettes – the awards make the headlines for the very bad reasons.
Legendary actress, Grace Nortey shockingly disclosed on Peace FM’s ‘Entertainment Review’ last week that she has not received any statuette for an award she won at the 2011 Ghana Movie Awards.
The actress’s disclosure follows other complaints from other winners of the same awards show who have over the years, expressed their contempt in not receiving their statuettes, months and years after being announced winners.
Razz Newspaper got hold of the founder of the Ghana Movie Awards, Mr. Fred Nuamah and had a dialogue with him on the various issues that have dogged the awards.
Razz (R): We seem to have issues every year with the Awards. People think, such issues are engineered deliberately to generate some hype for the Awards.
Fred Nuamah (FN): It is not true that the GMA does it for publicity. The situation of plaques taking some time before they are handed to winner is not peculiar to the GMA. You can find out from Samini or Sarkodie about how long it took for the organizers of MOBO and BET to present their awards to them. We at GMA want to put the names of the winners on the statuettes and since the winners are not pre-determined, we can only put the names on after the awards, so, what we usually give them on the night of the awards show are dummies. We have learnt lessons with regards to the statuette taking long to get to winners so next year, we will inform all nominees that if they want the awards to be presented to them as winners without the names on it or otherwise, although we think it is nice to have names of winners encrypted on the plaques.
The Chief Operations Officer of Ghana Movie Awards has explained to GhanaCelebrities.Com that the President of the award since its inception in 2010, Mr. David Dontoh, could not and has not resigned as reported lately.
RAZ entertainment newspaper reported on Wednesday 12th Feb, 2014 that Mr. David Dontoh has resigned from Ghana Movie Awards with the caption: ‘David Dontoh resigns.’ In the said report, David Dontoh expressed his anger at the organizers of GMA.
He revealed that he was not informed about the launch of the 2013 GMA, that is how come he was not present or seen at the launch of the award. According to Mr. Dontoh, he actually read about the launch from the newspapers.
Quoting from the newspaper: “If I’m the President of Ghana Movie Award and I had no idea about the award’s launch, no idea about the movie screening, and any media house questions me on any platform, what answers do you expect me to give?
“It doesn’t speak well of me, doesn’t speak well of the awards and makes the whole thing a big insult” Mr. Dontoh continued that he feels Fred Nuamah, Founder of GMA, and his team stabbed him in the back. Mr. Dontoh said he has decided to stay away from the awards scheme, and that he’s no longer going to be the President of the awards until better explanations are given.”
Shockingly, the Lifetime Achievement Award category in Ghana Movie Awards has been suspended by the organizers.
Mr. Prince Tsegah, Chief Operating Officer of Ghana Movie Awards made this revelation on Accra based radio station – Channel R. “We have suspended the Lifetime Achievement Awards,” Mr. Tsegah said emphatically.
The host asked Mr. Tsegah several times for the reason why the organizers or academy did so but Mr. Tsegah, who held the airwaves dead for some seconds, refused to let out the reason. Mr. Tsegah was actually responding to the failure of Ghana Movie Award to give out a plaque they promised veteran Nigerian actor Olu Jacob.
At the 2011 Ghana Movie Awards night held at the Accra International Conference Center, veteran Nigeria actor Olu Jacob was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Two years on, organizers of GMA have not given Mr. Olu Jacob his plaque.
The 4th edition of the Ghana Movie Awards will be held at the Accra International Conference Centre tonight- 30th Deecember, 2013—and our predictions are in, so you can know who we think will win what.
Surely, we think 97% of what we’ve predicted will come to pass. We are confident John Dumelo will win the ‘A PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE’ award, Joselyn Dumas will also take home the ‘A PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE’ award.
We are also certain that Yvonne Okoro will pick the ‘A PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE’ award with her performance in ‘Contract’.
Shirley Frimpong Manso and Herty Owusu will definitely win the ‘WRITING- ADAPTED OR ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY’ award with Leila Djansi smiling home with the ‘DIRECTING’ award for her work on Northern Affair.
As usual, the 2013 Ghana Movie Awards nomination list has kick-started the annual controversy, with many industry persons who are missing from the nomination list pointing fingers at the organizers.
Also, some of those who have scored nominations think they belong to certain categories—and not where they’ve been placed, GhanaCelebrities.Com has learned.
Leading the complaints team, film-maker-Leila Djansi has taken to social media platform-Faceebook to question the credibility and sense of direction of the Ghana Movie Awards.
Putting across her rant in relation to her own movie-Northern Affairs, Leila said, she finds it difficult to understand the nomination of Joselyn Dumas in the ‘Best Actress In Supporting Role’ category, when Joselyn Dumas played the lead role in the movie.
Leila Djansi wrote;
“Ghana Movie Awards, what on earth? How can Joselyn Dumas be nominated in supporting actress, when the entire story of A Northern Affair was told from her point of view?”
“Guys guys guys, if we are going to do something let us do it right. Please. We can’t continue like this. Get it together and get it right. GMA is a laudable enterprise but it needs to grow in the right direction”.
From Leila Djansi’s social media rant, it is obvious her problem is with the fact that as the Director of the movie, she is the best person to determine who is a lead or supporting if anything at all. And beyond that, the fact that a movie is all about someone places the person in the lead character category.
But when GhanaCelebrities.Com reached out to the organizers of the Ghana Movie Awards, they had an interesting and what seems like the right answer…
According to the organizers ‘like the Oscars and other big awards do, it is not the number of times a person appears in a movie or who the film-maker thinks is the lead that matters. But rather what the sitting committee members of GMA decide’.
Citing section 3 of Rule 6—Rules & Eligibility of the Oscars as a precedent, the organizers said “it is unfortunate that some people have failed to make the necessary enquiry before jumping into talking. Who is a lead or supporting in a movie is solely determined by the selected committee who ballot on this”.
Rahim Banda became the youngest actor to win an award at the last year’s Ghana Movie Awards on Christmas Day December 25 by gunning down heavyweights such as Adjetey Anang, Majid Michel, Edward Agyekum Kufuor (Son of the former President), Frank Artus and Chris Attoh. He made history by picking his first award at age … Read more
The gold-plated statuettes meant to be given to the winners of the third edition of the Ghana Movie Awards which were impounded by the immigration officials at Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (as organizers claim) has arrived in Ghana safely. According to the organizers, the seizure prevented the organizers of the annual awards from … Read more
There is a great divide in the Ghanaian movie industry and this became more evident prior to the last Ghana Movie Awards when the local dialect actors ‘Kumawood actors’, threatened to boycott the event. Some Twi actors since and after the awards have complained bitterly about how some of their ‘counterparts’, the English speaking actors treat them especially at public events. Some mentioned that the English speaking actors tend to embarrass them when they even get close to them.
The Ghana Movie Industry is one industry running on different dialects. It doesn’t matter to me if an actor belongs to Kumawood or Gollywood, they’re all part of the creative industry. The fact that somebody speaks English in his/her field and another speaks Twi in his/her field does not make one better than the other.
When I read this report in Graphic Showbiz, it was like reading about two different countries competing against each other. The actors who complained about the excessive snobbish behaviour of some English actors were, Kwaku Manu, Akrobeto and Salinco.
Kwaku Manu mentioned that on several occasions, he had tried chatting with some of the English-speaking glamour-type actors at events and the responses he had received were rather chilly, quoting him: “As though those of us who act in Twi are second-rate.”
Citing an example of one of such embarrassing as the 2011 Ghana Movie Awards, he said, he personally approached three English-speaking actors in a conversation and their reaction suggested that they did not recognise him as a colleague actor. The actor also mentioned that on another occasion, Nana Ama McBrown introduced him to some English-speaking actors at an event and he experienced a similar humiliation. “I get the impression that they see themselves as better than us and therefore look down on us” he said.
I am sure most people could not recognize Yvonne Nelson when she appeared at the 2012 Ghana Movie Awards which was held on 25th December… For some reason, I kept starring her way and wondered, what has happened to Yvonne… Looking at the photos today, there seems to be something totally wrong but I just … Read more
