Van Vicker

“I think Papa J is one of the greatest leaders Ghana has ever had. The way he speaks… He can sell you pig in a bag. The media just love his utterances. This is a man whose presence alone says a thousand words. Without saying a single word, he appears and he has said so many things by just looking at him. Can I say I want to be like him? He inspires me in so many different ways. Who knows? I’m walking in his footsteps.” Multiple awards winning actor and philanthropist, Van Vicker has passionately spoken of his admiration for the former president of Ghana, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.

Papa J.’s personality is second to none and that is one thing that tickles the actor who has publicly asked for the former president’s blessings. This he told the media who came to celebrate the 70th birthday celebration of J.J.

Van, who himself is a charismatic fellow, thinks that, that of the former president is incomparable, unrivaled and for so many reasons inspiring.

Lawyer Maurice Ampaw

“In every situation, you will have people who will support useless stuff. The right thinking Ghanaians, well cultured abhors pornographic materials that are why traditionally one cannot talk about sex. Morally, Christians also abhors pornographic materials, as for Muslims, they will throw stones at you for watching pornographic movies. Owners and viewers of Television stations which air pornographic movies are sick in the head. Quote me anywhere, anybody who watches pornographic movie or materials is not a right thinking member of society.

Lilwin & his Wife

“In this world, you cannot be living your life based on rumors and hear say. If I have issues with my wife, I will not come out and start complaining about it. Not at all; I understand you guys make money by writing about us. Whoever wants to write about me should write. Once you are a celebrity, your name will be attached to controversies and I understand that. If you are living with a lady and she leaves you when you have not done anything to her, then God will not bless you. So don’t listen to humans. Don’t mind anybody. It is not true.” Multiple awards winning comedian, Lilwin has opened up on his alleged marriage fiasco and as well debunked everything that the media earlier reported last week.

It was made public few days ago that the rib cracking actor had sent his wife and mother of his kids packing out of the house, making way for his mother to resume care taking duties of his children. He told an Accra based radio station, Happy FM that these rumors don’t seem to facet him one bit – that they are lies concocted to tarnish his image .

Kojo Nkansah, his real name, has fumed seriously at some media persons for their lack of enquires into matters before alerting the public. But in same vein, some fans are asking that the wife comes out and either support her husband’s claims or tell the world what she has to say.

We shall update you as soon as we get whims on the issue.

Fred Amugi Advises Young Directors and Producers

June 22, 2017

Fred Amugi

“I think we should stop using young people, making them look like old men and women, trying to make them up. The thing is that you can’t cheat nature. You will do everything for them to look like old people, but their voices alone will betray them; what worries me is that everybody wants to play in a kind of drama that will make people laugh only and I ask myself ‘is life all about laughter?’. Life is tall, short, fat, slim, head, toe; such is life. So why would you want people to always laugh?” Legendary screen god, Fred Amugi rhetorically spoke to Doreen Andoh on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Accra-based Joy FM.

The veteran actor was also quick to shower praises on all the directors and producers who give the older folks their roles as well as give the younger folks what they deserve to play. He made it known that no matter how smart or good a younger actor may be, it is inappropriate for that person to execute the role meant for another person. He said that out there in the West, right roles are apportioned to the right people and that has always made their outcomes perfect or close to perfection compared to our end here.

In ending his interview, he said that he believes that the older actors possess certain physiological traits that are necessary for the execution of the older characters that the younger ones do not have, therefore throwing suggestions that producers of stage play put a slice of every aspect of life on stage; the good, the bad and the ugly, in order that everyone would get the chance to relate to the play on all levels – he hinted that the film folks should take a cue.
