Basil & Rahina

All is not well in the home of Basil Anthony, popularly known as CEO ExtraOrdinaire, CEO of Silky Entertainment, organisers of Chicken-N-Beer party, as he has reportedly separated with the mother of his baby.
He confirmed the rumours in an interview on Xfm last Thursday, saying he was the latest victim of separation.
He said he and his wife, with whom he had a daughter, had been separated for over a year.
Explaining to NEWS-ONE how the separation occurred, Basil yesterday said, “My wife was very insecure about all the girls who hanged around me at the various events I organised, especially the Chicken-N-Beer party we organised every Sunday at Rockstones Office.”
He added that he had tried to explain the nature of his job to his wife but she was just not ready to bear with it. So she packed her belongings and left her marital home with his daughter.
He has kept this a secret all this while as he continues his life as though everything is ok. Their marriage lasted for only two years.
Meanwhile, Basil’s outfit TicketGhana will this Thursday host the second edition of their popular club event dubbed “Spintex Invasion” at Pool Bar night club.
Artistes as Ruff-N-Smooth, Stonebwoy, Ball-J and more are expected to rock the event. It promises to be a roadblock event and would definitely bring som

Yvonne Okoro encounters Nollywood media

Leila Djansi on Ties That Bind set

More than three years after she produced two excellent films, which shook the tenets of the African film industry, Leila Djansi has finally opened up on her fondest memories of shooting her ‘Sinking Sands’ and ‘Ties That Bind’ films.
She told NEWS-ONE on Sunday morning that shooting both films was nerve-racking but it was also fun.  
Working on ‘Ties That Bind’, she revealed, was not as stressful as ‘Sinking Sands’. But besides the stress, there were fun moments too.
With ‘Sinking Sands’, her fondest memory was filming the wedding scene. It is still fresh on her mind and remembers how they made it look like a “real wedding”.
However, she thought ‘Ties That Bind’ was more fun because, she was not oblivious of her past mistakes while shooting ‘Sinking Sands’.

She learnt from her past experience on the previous set, which made things easier for her on the ‘Ties That Bind’ set.               
“Hmm ‘Sinking Sands’, honestly, I don’t know if I have any particularly fond memories of that set. I only remember the stress and disorganization. The day we shot the wedding sequence was a lot of fun though. It felt like we were preparing a real wedding and I got to keep the cake.”
Sinking Sands (Jimmy Jean Louis & Ama K)
“‘Ties that Bind’ was fun because by then I had learnt from mistakes of ‘Sinking Sands’ and had a better handle on everything. Every moment on ‘Ties that Bind’ was fun. My favorite day was the day we shot the white garment church at Shai Hills and the scene with the graves,” Leila said.
She added that her submission was not based on outcomes of the scenes in the films but the experiences they had to go through on set.
Sinking Sands (Ama K & Jimmy Jean Louis)
“No. Not the final outcome but the work day. We really felt like we were making a movie. We had over 100 extras, the crew and we had built every aspect of the church. We cleared land at Shai Hills and built a white garment church. We even bought a trip of sand to give the earth a different color. White sand. It felt like we were at camp. The shots were some of my favorites too,” she said.
Both films are doing well on the movie market in Ghana and outside including the World Wide Web.
Ties That Bind ( Ama K)
‘Sinking Sands’, which starred Ama K. Abebrese and Jimmy Jean Louis as the lead cast, produced 2011 Africa Movie Academy Awards Best Actress in lead role and won other awards.
‘Ties That Bind’, which is s story about Kimberly Elise, Omotola Jalade and Ama K. Abebrese, also did convincingly well in the cinemas and awards arena.

Zeal of VIP

Zeal of VIP

























Zeal, singer and a member of Ghana’s award-winning music group, VIP, has said one of the reasons he is keeping a long beard is because he wants to stand out and be counted among Ghana’s sexiest looking men.
According to him, he wanted a new look and give the impression of being sexy.
Zeal, who used to be called Lazy, changed his name in September last year and has maintained his new name, Zeal.
He is well known in his group for keeping his beard well trimmed and short for a very long time. However, in recent times, he has been keeping the beard a little longer, which is giving him a Rick Ross kind of look.

On Friday, he caught the attention of media cameras with his looks when he joined other musicians at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra for the launching of MUSIGA’s monthly musical industrial night event. 
All eyes were on him when he granted interviews and also when he posed for the cameras with fellow musicians Obour, Tic Tac and others.
Promzy and Prodigal, the other members of VIP, were not seen at the ceremony. 
After the programme, he told NEWS-ONE he had no other inspiration for his new look than to change his looks.    
“Well I just wanted to change my look and look like a real man and sexy at the same time,” he told the paper’s Francis Addo.
Born Abdul Hamid Ibrahim, Zeal is one of the popular members of VIP and known for his singing ability.  
The other members are Promzy and Prodigal who were born Emmanuel Promzy Ababio and Joseph Nana Ofori respectively.
The group released its first album in 1998, titled ‘Bibi Baa O’. Since then, it has become the most popular Hip life group in Ghana.
In 2000, it released its second album, ‘Ye De Aba’ which was very successful.
In 2001, it released ‘Lumbe Lumbe Lumbe’ with the smashing hit ‘Daben Na Odo Beba’. The group took its career to the next level with its 2003 album ‘Ahomka Womu’. The ‘Ahomka Womu’ title track topped Ghanaian charts for over 20 weeks. 
VIP won five awards at the Ghana Music Awards with the album and the group gained international exposure after this success. Since then, the group has toured the world.

Tic Tac poses with Obour, Zeal and Nshira
Greater Accra Chairman of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) Nana Kwaku Duah, popularly known as Tic Tac, has denied that the union’s newly launched Industry Night Ghana event was derived from the rested Music For Your Dancing Feet programme on TV in the mid 90s.
He told NEWS-ONE on Friday evening that MUSIGA’s event would go beyond Music For Your Dancing Feet, though he added that the Industry Night Ghana would also be a TV magazine programme.

Majid Michel on 2012 AMAA Awards stage
Ghanaian actor Majid Michel’s hopes of retaining the position of Africa Movie Academy Awards Best Actor in leading role have been dashed, following his failure to secure a nomination for the 2013 edition of the award ceremony.
Majid won Best Actor in lead role category at the 2012 edition of the award after outshining Hollywood names Hakeem Kae Kazim and Chet Anekwe, and other contenders such as Wale Ojo from Nigeria and Karado Lance, Jafta Mamabolo and Menzi Ngubane- all from South Africa.
That was Majid’s first AMAA award after he was nominated four times since 2009.
Majid Michel on AMAA 2012 stage
Receiving his award on stage that fateful night, Majid promised African movie observes of his return, saying, “I will be back.”   
“Anytime I am given a platform like this to say something sensible, I never do. But today I’m going to try and say something worthwhile. Great thanks go to God, the crew of the movie, ‘Somewhere in Africa’, 4reez, Louis. I want to thank them for supporting me to bring that character out. I want to say big thanks to you AMAA awards.”
“This is my AMAA awards 2012. Today is a memorable day for me. I have been nominated for the past four years consecutively. I didn’t see it coming. I had a bet with my advisor- Mawuli. He told me I was going to win but I said no I don’t deserve it. So if I win I will give him the award, (he gave the statuette to Mawuli who was on stage with him and others), but I will take it later. I want to say big thanks to you my wife, my sister, my mum paid my film fees and to my father, who is late. To all single people here thank you so much for the support. I can see some faces; Nse, Rita, Kate … I don’t want to say much. I think the time is ticking. Thank you so much AMAA awards. Great job for me; next year I will be back,” he said.
But as it stands, now Majid will perhaps be back for the 2013 edition of the award as an observer and not a competitor.

Yvonne Okoro
Ghanaian movie industry stakeholders have congratulated actress Yvonne Okoro on her Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) nominations.
Actresses Lydia Forson, Ama K Abebrese are among a host of stakeholders who made their congratulation messages public.
Beautiful Yvonne is the only Ghanaian actor to be nominated for this year’s AMAAs.
Ama K. Abebrese
Lydia Forson
Her self-produced movie, ‘The Contract’, directed by Shirley Frimpong Manson, had six nominations in the following categories: the ‘AMAA 2013 Prize For Best Director’, ‘AMAA 2013 Prize For Best Actress In A Leading Role’, ‘AMAA 2013 Prize For Best Actor In A Leading Role’, ‘AMAA 2013 Prize For Achievement In Screenplay’, ‘AMAA 2013 Prize For Achievement In Editing’ and ‘AMAA 2013 Prize For Achievement In Production Design.’
Lydia Forson, who witnessed the AMAA nomination party in Malawi, last Friday, tweeted at Yvonne, “Congratulations to @yvonneokoro The Contract had 6 nominations including Best Actor and Actress in a Lead role and Best Director!”
 “Kudos to my girl, @yvonneokoro; 6 (six) nominations at AMAA And it’s only her first production...ContractIsTheISh woohoooooo,” popular TV anchor Nana Aba Anamoah also tweeted.
The likes of Amanda Jissih, Juliet Ibrahim, Majid Michel, Prince David Osei, Sandra Ankobiah, D Black, and Alexis Ntsiakoh, host of Today’s Woman, among others, have all congratulated the actress for making Ghana proud.

Mabel Germian

In a bid to give back to society, award-winning Ghanaian costume designer Mabel Germain has embarked on a rescue mission to help teenage mothers.
The Mabel Germain Foundation will be providing teen mothers with education, job training, healthcare and counseling as it launches  its programme,  Child With Child’ during the Easter celebrations.
“In Ghana, one among five girls between the ages of 15 and 18 is pregnant or has been pregnant at some point in time. Seventy percent (70%) of these teenagers become mothers who are just not ready for motherhood.
“Some of these mothers and their children are vey deprived, but it is also believed behind every dark tunnel is a bright light, and that behind the poverty stricken and deprived lifestyle of these young mothers, they still have skills, talents and knowledge that can be taped for nation building,” Mabel Germain told NEWS-ONE.
She and her team will be putting smiles on the faces of these unfortunate teen moms and their babies at the ‘Child With Child’ Easter gathering on April 1, 2013 at the Mallam Atta Market at 2.00pm.
Among activities will be registration of teen moms and counseling them on female reproductive health by a team of doctors. There will also be a presentation of donor products and clothes to the young mothers, as well as merry-making.
The most important aspect of the ceremony will be a sod-cutting for a construction of a daycare shed for children of teen moms.
Mabel is a costume designer known for her exploits in Ghana’s movie industry. She won two awards within a year. She won Best Wardrobe for ‘Sinking Sand’s at the Ghana Movie Awards in December 2011 and also picked up the Best Costume Designer for Leila Djansi’s ‘I Sing Of A Well’ at the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) 2011.
Mabel started her career in 1986 as an actress in the film ‘Cobra Verde’, by German director Klaus Kinski. She subsequently played roles in films like ‘Escape To Love’, ‘Confessions’, and several others.
She later decided to go behind the cameras because at that time, the technical aspect of the film industry was more lucrative than acting.
She later obtained a Diploma in Cosmetology and specialized in makeup artistry so she branched into makeup. Her mum was also a fashion designer.
“So when it comes to sewing and designing, it is part of me since childhood. So when I branched into makeup and I realized that there is also another platform to explore in costuming and wardrobe designing, I branched into that area as well. That was how come I became a costume designer,” Mabel once told NEWS-ONE.          
Her first job as a wardrobe designer started with TV series ‘Sticking To the Promise’ in 2003, after which she did her first costume job for ‘Golden Stool’, followed by ‘Love Bird’. She has since worked on a number of films including ‘Agony Of Christ’ by Venus Films, which she said “was a very challenging job that I have ever done. After ‘Agony of Christ’ any job that I do looks little for me.”
Now she is bent on giving back to the society that indirectly supported her career.

David Dontoh

Ghanaian movie industry stakeholders are not relenting on their calls to business moguls, banks and governments to give some attention to their industry.
They believe giving the industry some serious concentration will not only make it grow and improve the quality of movie production in Ghana but also go a long way to lessen the stress on the national economy.
Veteran actors David Dontoh and Akorfa Ejeani Asiedu last week reiterated the call on TV Africa, saying the movie industry had 207 job areas.
“The last time we checked, we had about 207 job areas,” David Dontoh said on TV Africa’s business programme hosted by Yvonne Ohui McCarthy.  
Akorfa Ejeani Asiedu
It is one of the reasons they think the movie industry is the best place to invest.  Even though David and Akorfa didn’t enumerate the job areas, the movie industry employs actors, directors, cinematographers, costume designers, art directors, makeup artistes, production managers, journalists, accountants, drivers and a host of others.
Some other concerns about government supporting the movie industry were also raised on the programme.Yaw Boakye, a lecturer at Nation Film & Television Institute (NAFTI), said industry stakeholders should be cautious of how they sought government intervention.
His reason was that if governments were given a total control of the movie industry, it could rather use it for political advantage and dictate to independent filmmakers, which shouldn’t be so.
He however urged governments to a certain extent endeavour to create an enabling environment for the industry to flourish.

After stunning fans with a three-part gold colored, studded invitation card for their traditional wedding which held two weeks ago (March 8), star couple 2face and Annie Idibia have taken it a notch higher with a specially-designed invite for their upcoming grand white wedding holding in Dubai on March 23, 2013.
The invitation is best described as a package containing a black invite card with white and red lettering, a small access tag (no one will be allowed on the yacht where the wedding is holding without the tag) and a travel guide.
Everything is contained in an expensive box with chocolate dressing. The invitation package was designed by Karman Invitationers, a Lagos-based crafts company that specializes in items like this. A rep for the company tells Nigeriaentertainmenttoday.com (NET) that each IV costs about N9000 and that 200 copies were made. That means the couple doled out about N1.8m for the souvenir.
The website further gathered that the IVs took about two to three months to be prepared and finished. The Idibias are making sure every single detail tied to their grand wedding is of top quality.
