Leila Djansi on And There Was You set
Nana Akua Addo
Ghanaian movie director Leila Djansi seems to be enthusiastic about upcoming Ghanaian film, Nkuli (The Masked), which is themed on the deadly disease, HIV/Aids, and its effects in Africa. 
After seeing the film’s trailer yesterday, the director, who is expected in Ghana sometime this year for her next production said, “Nice, I will like to see this film and know how the story is structured.”
Nkuli (The Masked) is the first Ghanaian movie to treat the issues of HIV/Aids as its theme, this year. Unconfirmed reports say the Ghana AIDS Commission is one of the sponsors of the film, which is produced by actress Nana Akua Addo.
Nkuli (The Masked) tells the story of a young Nkuli (played by Nana Akua Addo) and her two siblings, Kwame (played by James Gardner) and Gye Nyame (played by Lisa Asor Awuku), who had to face the harsh realities of life after the untimely death of their parents.
They found themselves in the care of a wicked aunt (played by Paulina Oduro) who ushered Nkuli into prostitution, as a means of generating income for the family’s upkeep.
Nkuli got infected with the HIV virus and the rest of the story is what movie fans should anticipate in the next few months.
Nkuli (The Masked) generally talks about the dangers and huge risks children are exposed to when there is little or no parental guidance or protection.
It is directed by Phil Bernard for Hau of Kadewe Films, producers of the hilarious ‘Wanna Be’ movie.
Leila Djansi is known for her unique style of telling stories via visuals and she wanting to see the Nkuli story is something worth talking about.

Kisa
Ghanaian actress, Kisa has decided to reveal a bit of her sexy curves in her new hot photos available to NEWS-ONE. The beautiful actress was half-naked and reports say the photos have started creating some problems in her home.
Kisa, also a musician and producer, was topless in some of the photos, though she used her hands to cover her attractive and tempting breasts. With the latest photos, Kisa, who is currently tagged as a discovery actress from the Selassie Ibrahim-produced ‘Miser’ series, joins the league of most daring actresses on the African continent. She has the obvious potential of going to the extreme in the future in the area of oozing some really crazy sexiness.
Kisa is described as a Ghanaian singer, song writer, actress and also producer. She had worked behind the scene for some years before deciding to face the cameras.
She is currently playing the role of Zenabu in the ‘Miser’ series which airs on Wednesdays on GTV at 8: 30pm.
‘The Miser’ is directed by award-winning director John Ezedome and produced by Selassie’s Samrtty’s Management Productions with Kofi Adjorlolo as the lead actor.
It tells an interesting story of Efo Kodwo (Kofi Adjorlolo), a well-read Ewe man married to Aishetu (Selassie Ibrahim) who hails from the north.
Efo is a wealthy farmer who hides his riches from his family and friends and tries to live an economical life. He makes life unbearable for his family to the extent that he measures everything at home including a pot of soup and even music played by his children. Simply put, he dominates his family with his strict, stingy ideologies of economics.
But there is only one person who can stop him- his mother-in-law, Hajia (Grace Nortey).
Immediately Hajia enters his home on a visit, Efo becomes very sober and a loving father and husband.
His daughter Dela (Roselyn Ngissah) takes advantage of Hajia’s presence to benefit from her miserly dad. Also in the series is James Gardner among others.

Akumaa Mama Zimbie

Dr. Joyce Aryee
Akumaa Mama Zimbi and Dr. Joyce Aryee have been named ambassadors for 2013 edition of the World Heart Day (WHD) in Ghana. The two celebrated figures were chosen by the Ghana Cardiothoracic Centre of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
This year's World Heart Day will be celebrated on September 28 at the Efua Satherland Children’s Park in Accra with a walk and free heart screening.
The theme for this year is, “Walking On The Road To A Healthy Heart” with a focus on women and children.
 Each year, over 17million people die worldwide out of heart-related issues. And one out of every three women who die, die out of heart-related diseases.
In fact, every minute, a woman dies out of heart-related disease in the world, and in Ghana, it is the highest cause of death in women and children.
At a press launch of the World Heart Day at the British Council, Prof. Frimpong Boateng and Dr. Siribour, the past and present directors of the Ghana Cardiothoracic Centre in Ghana respectively, commended Mama Zimbi in her effort towards development of women in Ghana.
The two ambassadors are to work closely with all the heart-related institutions to raise awareness about such diseases in Ghana till September next year.
According to Mama Zimbi, if heart-related diseases would be minimized and stopped completely, women would have to play a greater role. She added, “We all need to eat well, exercise regularly, rest adequately and go for regular checkups at the hospital to reduce the chances of getting hearts-related diseases.”

   
Samantha
ETV Ghana is celebrating the second edition of its flagship event dubbed “Made in Ghana Month”, an initiative to encourage the public to celebrate and patronise Ghana-made products and services.
Pretty Samantha Wuta-Ofei, a news anchor with the station who often rocks her fabulous Ghanaian-made fabric talks about how she views the celebrations.
Samantha said from her point of view, she believes “Made in Ghana Month” is a very commendable effort by ETV Ghana as she believes it will drive home the patriotic agenda. “If we continue to support our own, as a country, it will ultimately lead to an increase in the use of local products and services which will, in turn, create opportunities that will grow our economy.”
 “I have passion for fashion and thus I have my designer busily designing dozens of fantastic clothing for me to keep on rocking all month long,” she has revealed on how she is contributing to mark the significance of the initiative.
“I love Ghana and as a media person who is on TV every now and then, I believe I need to send out the message on my views and my way is to look fabulous in my sizzling Ghanaian fabric,” Samantha said, but admitted that she is still not fluent in her native language, Ga, which she is trying to learn now.
Samantha has lived in the UK almost all of her life and decided to move to her beloved motherland last year to further her career and contribute her quota to the Ghanaian media.
She can be spotted live on ETV Ghana on Mondays and Thursdays adding a spice of the London-feel to the news of ETV Ghana’s breakfast show with presenters like Bismark Brown and Rashida Nasaamu.

Kenneth Okoro
Okoro Sisters
Kenneth Okoro, younger brother of popular Ghanaian actress Yvonne Okoro has signed a three-year contract to play for Ghanaian club side, Accra Hearts of Oak. 
The move was reportedly aided by Nana Yaw Boatey, Commoodore Mensah and Stephen Appiah who discovered the talented Kenneth.
Sister and award-winning actress Yvonne Okoro expressed enthusiasm for her brother’s progress to play for the Accra giant club.
“I’m happy for him. He has always wanted to play football and I think this is a good opportunity for him to take it to the next level. The family is strongly behind him and we expect the best for him,” the ‘Contract’ actress said on Tuesday.   
Kenneth Okoro, who is currently described by local sports media as a brilliant young striker, went for discovery trials by Hearts of Oak before the Phobians saw his exploits in soccer.
He played well and passed the test with distinction which persuaded the club to quickly offer him the three-year contract.
He is expected to swiftly graduate to the senior side and also grow to become a national asset.
Yvonne has been tweeting about her brother’s success in past weeks to confirm her enthusiasm. She has obviously become a Phobia fan.

Yvonne Okoro & Yvonne Jegede

Helen Asante & Zynnell Lydia Zuh
The era of petty-fighting, backbiting and envy among female celebs could not find a place in the relationship between two beautiful Ghanaian actresses; Zynnell Lydia Zuh and Helen Asante. The two actresses, for the past weeks have sent signals that they are best friends and would not allow petty issues come between them.
Though critics say their friendliness can only be proven in a matter of time, the 'Different Shades of Blue' actress and ‘Adams Apples’ cute actress at the moment are having a jolly good time together as industry ‘besties’,  NEWS-ONE gathered.
They seem very comfortable in each other’s company and such was the situation when they attended the cover party for Yvonne Okoro’s edition of the Glitz Africa celebrity and lifestyle magazine, last Wednesday.  
They commanded respect and some attention with their stunning looks while they posed for snapshots.
It was indeed a friendly affair at the event, even though they are both competitors in an industry where seeking prominence is the order of the day.
In their company was another friend and rising actress Adelaide.
Wednesday was the second time the cameras officially captured them together. The first was at the City People Awards held in Nigeria. But there had been other times when they were spotted together hanging out.
What many people currently do not know is what has bound the two cute actresses? Could it be their tolerance, respect or love for each other?
In the past, Helen used to hang out with plump actress and Ghana Movie Award 2010 Best Actress co-winner, Roselyn Ngissah. But not much of them have been seen this year.
Interestingly, she started to roll with Zynnell Lydia Zuh who has not really defined who her real friends are. She attended the 2012 edition of Ghana Movie Awards with Lydia Forson, an indication that they have some relationship.
Indeed, the new bondage with Helen only needs time to attest whether they are real friends or just doing it for the moment.
