Yvonne Nelson reveals why Ghana’s movie industry is not progressing

Yvonne Nelson tags some actors as ‘unserious’

Yvonne Nelson announces next step of actions

Ghana’s award-winning actress, Yvonne Nelson, has stated that some of her colleagues do not show dedication and commitment when called to star in a movie project.

According to Yvonne, the local movie industry is not progressing because her “peeps are just not serious.”

The celebrated actress did not mince words when she called out persons who are collapsing the industry with their poor attitude towards work, this she lamented draws investors away.

Although she specifically did not name any ‘unserious’ actor, Yvonne, who doubles as a movie producer, was upset judging from her rants on her Twitter platform.

Yvonne Nelson has revealed that she has had enough from her people, adding that she will no longer tolerate any unprofessional behaviour when it comes to working with a crew.

“Honestly! I’m tired! Our people aren’t serious! #shame #movieindustry #crew,” the actress wrote in a post dated November 28, 2021.

Purification or not, the law would work again – Arnold to Shatta Wale

Published

on

Entertainment journalist and nemesis of Shatta Wale, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, has sounded a word of caution to the Dancehall artiste. According to him, bathing in the sea would not make Shatta Wale immune to the law.

Arnold Asamoah shared his opinion on the supposed ‘spiritual bath’ that Shatta WaleMedikal and the others took after being released from jail. Although Bulldog, acting as Shatta Wale’s manager, disputed the spirituality part of the beach bath, Arnold had this to say;

“Well, I think everyone has their believes and convictions, especially when it comes to spiritual matters. So what works for you is what you abide by. I don’t have a problem with them going through that exercise because I am sure they have a certain belief that when they do those things, any bad luck from going to prison and all will be washed away. That’s their belief. They have a strong conviction in that. And so I can’t begrudge them for going through that process.”

Conferring to Arnold, their actions should not be tagged with a sinister motive considering our roots as Africans.

“I don’t know why people would think that that is idol worshipping. We grew up with tradition and culture. Plus, spirituality. So I don’t see why anybody should have an issue with what they did.”

Having said that, Arnold maintains that the spiritual bath would not be a protection from the law if Shatta goes up against it.

“However, I think it’s also critical to mention that going through that process doesn’t mean that if you breach the law, you won’t be held responsible. So I have no problem with them going through that process once it gives them relief.”

I live within my means, chill with the expectations – KiDi pleads

Published

on

Afro-pop artiste, Dennis Dwamena, known in showbiz as KiDi, has pleaded with his fans to lessen their expectations of his celebrity status.

KiDi wrote on his Twitter page to draw the line between his celebrity status and regular lifestyle. He added that he has not amassed enough wealth yet, and until then, people should expect a simple lifestyle.

He said, “One day I’ll be rich. But right now, I’m not. So don’t be expecting some kind of rich and flashy lifestyle from me because I be star, I beg. I live within my means. Dead the expectations.”

It seems the ‘touch It’ hitmaker may also be sending a word of caution to all social media users to stay away from unnecessary pressure from celebrities.
And for all to take note that “not all that glitters is gold”. And as such, the youth should remain vigilant and focused at all times.

Kidi is an afro-pop singer and songwriter who has been making countless hit songs in the entertainment industry. His newest album, ‘The Golden Boy’ has made headlines with ‘touch it’ as one of his singles to debut Billboard charts globally.

We hope to see more exciting features and songs that will put Ghanaian music on the global map.

See his post below:

One day I’ll be rich.
But right now I’m not so don’t be expecting some kind of rich and flashy lifestyle from me because I be star, I beg.
I live within my means. Dead the expectations ????— KiDi (@KiDiMusic) October 26, 2021
