Roseline Okoro, younger sister of popular actress Yvonne Okoro has signed a juicy deal with cosmetic giant, Ghandour Cosmetics Limited, as the face of the company’s new product line, Princess.
Princess is a range of cream products by Ghandour which improves the natural structure of the skin and leaves it looking smoother and firmer.
It comes in different varieties including natural olive, shea butter, aloe vera, coconut butter, lemon cream, cocoa butter as well as hand and body lotion.
The shea butter is ideal for plumping out the skin and smoothing wrinkles while the aloe vera cream also contains soothing and healing properties of aloe vera combined with vitamin E for smooth, supple skin. The coconut butter cream has a sweet fragrance and is absorbent but without stickiness for rehydrating parched skin.
The lemon product provides the perfect antidote to dull and tired skin. It is ultimate in moisture care for very dry skin. The cocoa butter is a rich, luscious almost edible skin cream designed to diminish stretch marks and wrinkles. Its emollient qualities will relieve skin irritation, according to Ghandour’s website.
Roseline was chosen obviously because her brand and beauty represent what the Princess range of products is all about – ensuring and promoting African beauty.
Roseline, according to information available to NEWS-ONE, has received huge cash for the deal. Currently, her billboards are in town with some located off the Accra end of the Accra-Tema motorway.
Ghandour Cosmetics Limited remains one of the market leaders who like to affiliate with popular figures. It has provided a superior range of skin and hair care products in West Africa for the past 15 years, employing over 600 Ghanaians in its Accra base. It also operates in Mali, Togo, Burkina Faso and the Gambia. It is looking to expand further in the region as it brings the best of international trends and developments to West Africa.

Leonora Okine and Chris Attoh
Actress Leonora Okine has confessed that she is yet to find a “trustworthy love” in any man.
The beautiful actress has spoken about her love life for the first time in about three years after she denied ever dating fellow actor John Dumelo, who has already been associated with a number of ladies in the entertainment industry.
Leonora was speaking to NEWS-ONE on Friday about the reason she would choose her career over marriage at the moment.
“It makes no sense to choose marriage over career unless you’re moving away from where your career is so you can be with your partner. You shouldn’t have to choose between marriage and career; you can have both. Depending on the kind of person you are, marriage alone by itself or career alone by itself cannot make you happy. Either one can make you happy for a long time but your feelings about them may eventually change. I find it a dangerous thing to have to choose, and I wouldn’t. 
“The career comes first for me right now because I’m yet to find trustworthy love. When I do find it, it better not put me in the position to choose because I would choose my career over marriage. Marriage should be supportive of your career if you can find a fairly satisfactory compromise, but if it can’t, I would choose my career,” she said.
Leonora last made headlines when she was named among the cast of MTV Base awareness series, ‘Shuga’. That followed her exit from popular Mnet produced soap, ‘Tinsel’.
She and Chris Attoh were the first Ghanaian actors to have made it on ‘Shuga’ which is aired to millions of TV audiences. She has currently been shooting in Nigeria.

Ghanaian R&B singer Fianko Bossman says he is set for yet another exciting musical journey with the release of his much awaited music video for his ‘Booze Man Anthem’ featuring R2bees’ Mugeez. 
The song is dedicated to everybody including booze men.
Chase dropped the video over the weekend and has since been receiving thumps up from his fans.
The new song is Chase’s first time teaming up with Mugeez after he first worked with R2bees’ Paedae on his first single, ‘Tell Me Ur Name’. 
Both Chase and Mugeez brought their unique music talent to bear on the new song and their fans are currently enjoying it.
The video is expected to do well and top the chats in no time. It centres on an insecure guy who thinks Chase and Mugeez are hitting on his girl and tries to start a fight.
However, Mugeez stands by his guy and fights for chase. “Just watch and enjoy it,” Chase told his music fan base yesterday.

David Dontoh
Veteran Ghanaian actor David Dontoh has challenged the long-time assertion in movie industries across the world that there are “small” and “big” roles in acting.
 According to the Ghanaian actor who played a supporting role in internationally distributed movie, ‘Deadly Voyage’, there is nothing like that.
He explained that there are rather small actors and big actors who project the roles they play depending on the plot of the movie they are starring in.
“We don’t have small roles and big roles. We actually have small actors and big actors because an actor takes a small role and make it the biggest, depending upon the story. And so I don’t discriminate in the size of a role I play in a movie. Except that it is not that challenging enough for me. I will normally like to go in for challenging roles,” he told NEWS-ONE at Busy Internet when reacting to queries about why he accepted a “small role” in upcoming movie tilted, ‘Announcement’ which stars Adjetey Anang, Doris Sackitey, Kafui Danku and a host of others. 
Mr. Dontoh played the role of a church elder who does not compromise on the doctrines of Christianity.
His role encourages church elders to live exemplary lives because everybody looks up to them, in terms of their character, Christian and moral values.
Mr. Dontoh said he accepted the role because he wanted to help the director and producer of the movie, who is a new entrant.
“I thought the lady [the director and producer] was a new entrant in the industry, quite industrious and quite professional. She is someone who wants to do the right thing and I thought it is good for me to be part of it and support her and give her one or two directions that will increase our numbers in the right direction. That is why I decided to be part of this production.”

Lydia Forson on AMAA platform
Award-winning actress Lydia Forson has defended the crucial and priceless relevance of the annual Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAAs), saying it is a major stakeholder in raising the standards of African movies.

She has therefore called on African governments to respect and support the AMAAs in particular as well as filmmakers in general.

The actress noted that for the past nine years, the AMAAs has served as a huge a platform where African filmmakers are brought under one umbrella and has also helped improve the quality of movies from the continent.
Lydia said the award scheme has contributed to the African film industry, as it has “raised the quality of films over the past nine years. If we compare the movies made in 2006 to 2012 some of those movies would not even qualify for screening now. Through AMAA you’re forced to see what other countries are doing and you realize you probably have to step up your game. And it has created healthy competition for filmmakers.
“But most importantly it is gradually uniting African filmmakers. For years it was the only award system that brought filmmakers from across Africa,” she told NEWS-ONE in an exclusive interview.
Couple of weeks ago, Lydia Forson was named alongside other Nigerian filmmakers as brand ambassadors for the 10th anniversary celebration of the AMAAs.
She was chosen because her brand represents what the Africa Movie Academy Awards is all about; quality and projecting Africa to the world. She would among other activities represent AMAA on major platforms including international film festivals.
Lydia believes uniting the film industry with African leaders would not just inure to the benefit of film stakeholders but also all and sundry in each African country.
“I think filmmakers have the power to send messages politicians can only try to do. The power of film is that it cuts across gender, age, colour etc, so we have a far wider reach. If we want people to see Africa for what it truly is, it can only be done through film. For instance, all we know about the US is based on what Hollywood has shown us. The only reason why a little boy in the village will want to go to New York, or start dressing and speaking like an American is because of how it has been projected through film. Through movies we can increase investments, tourism etc. But none of this is achievable unless our politicians and government start to respect the power filmmakers have,” she added.
