We are in the month of April and the Ghana showbiz industry is seeing some controversies and other issues making some media personalities receive some sort of attention which is making them trend. Some are negative, others positive.
Mr Mark Okraku Mantey, the CEO of Slip Music on Joy FM (Showbiz A-Z) stated that “Per the standard and track records of Ghana Music Awards that I know, Berla Mundi should not have been the lead MC but a support.” This statements sparked up some issues and GH One’s new anchor Nana Aba Anamoah took to twitter to disagree to what he said, calling Mr Okraku Mantey “Mr. Know-it-all” and that Miss Berla Mundi works hard and she earned it with others agreeing to what Nana Aba said, whilst others also agreeing to the fact that she should have been a support.
Our very own Miss Moesha Babiinoti Boduong for sometime now has been in the news for her interview with Christiane Amanpour on CNN International nightly interview where she stated that “In Ghana, our economy is such a way that you need someone to take care of you because you can’t make enough money as a woman to pay your rent” and Ghanaians were lambasting her for making such a statement on an international platform. However, others think what she said is true.”
Patapaa has also been trending in the news for some time now for the outfit he wore to the VGMA’s and his supposed Vodafone Song of the Year award he lost to Fancy Gadam. He was interviewed on the delay show and was asked if he is dating but he said he is not, nonetheless ‘’he gets ladies to have sex with’’ whenever he feels like because he is a celebrity, so he claims.
The Shatta Movement boss and frontline artiste Shatta Wale is also in the news for having some issues with his babe mama Shatta Michy. Some are saying it’s one of their social stunts. Others think it’s true they are really fighting. None of the parties have been able to speak out so we can’t be sure what exactly is going on with them
Well, this is GH for you and the issues with our ‘’celebrities’’. One may ask, is the attention our celebrities create for themselves so necessary at times? Sometimes necessary and sometimes unnecessary.
