A few weeks ago it was confirmed that Nigerian actress, Mercy Johnson, was expecting her third child. While many of her fans are happy for her with her growing family she has also received criticism for not spacing out her kids & practicing family planning.

Mercy Johnson gave birth to her second child – Henry, last year October.

In a recent interview the actress hit back of critics of her third pregnancy saying, she is a married adult and can decide to live her life the way she wants. She even tells us she’s going to have a fourth child!

She said, “Yes, I am expecting my third child and I’m a married person so I don’t think people should ask me why. I understand the ethics of spacing kids but I’m a married person and I’m an adult. I can decide the way I want to live my life. Thank you so much for the hate speeches but save the hate speeches because the 4th will soon come to round it up, you can show your anger then. But for now it’s good news, let’s celebrate.”

 

Rapper Sarkodie in his 2012 Pizza and Burger collaboration with Jayso warned the judiciary to desist from taking bribes.

Three years on, the lyrics of the song have become a central theme to an ongoing corruption scandal against over 100 persons including Judges who work in Ghana’s judicial sector.

“Police fio, Judges fo) aa mo regye amanfo) dough, monhw3 no yie na Anas re ba oo”, the lyrics read. It looks like Sarkodie’s words have come to pass.

TV presenter and host of Joy FM’s entertainment show, Rhythmz A-Z says one of the biggest challenges in her career has been the struggle to deal with numerous love advances made at her but has learnt to take them in her stride as an occupational hazard without compromising on her professional amd moral principles.

With a distinct voice many would die for, Mamavi Owusu Aboagye has worked hard to make a mark on the media landscape and over time, warmed her way into her loyal listeners. But such loyalty has come at a price as her greatest asset in broadcasting is ironically her main source of distress by male listners.

In a bare-it-all interview with the Showbiz, the bubbly presenter confessed that her marital status has not in any way cooled off interest in her by the would-be suitors. Despite being married with two children, she got endless hit-ons from male admirers who were mostly attracted by her voice.

“Marriage hasn’t been the solution to driving away men who think I’m good for them but I have found ways of making them know that I am a no-go-area. I have a lifetime contract with a man who understands my job and I don’t hope to fall for these temptations,” she said.

A co-presenter of AM Morning Show on Joy TV, Mamavi, as she is affectionately called, explained that she found effective and professional ways to handle such men, some of who are unrelenting in their advances and have devised crafty ways to get her attention.

 Such constant lustful overtures could be a bother but she has developed a big heart to accept them as a price to pay for success and does not treat them as a nuisance per se but there is a line her admirers are not permitted to cross.

“You have to be smart to know when to draw the line. You can’t pretend to be nice when that will bring you trouble. I’m in charge of my life and for a woman who adores her family and husband, riches and the flashy things of life are not enough to make me disobey my marital vows.

“I understand these are some of the challenges that come with my work so I use it [my voice] to my advantage by getting resource persons for my shows,” she said.

The road to the spotlight hasn’t come on a silver platter for the mother of two. After completing her secondary school at Zion College in the Volta Region and faced with the reality of life’s challenges, Mamavi had to find hope in the “treasure” of her voice. And that was what set her on the path of broadcasting about 12 years ago at the studios of Uniiq FM where she offered “free” services to get her busy.

She moved to Radio Central in Cape Coast and later found herself at Skyy Power FM in Takoradi where she was interviewed for radio but found herself at the front desk. But that “ misfortune” must have been the key to unlock her fortunes as young and determined Mamavi used the opportunity to sell her voice to  clients.

“When one of the presenters of the station left, I got the chance to host one of the weekend shows called Coast To Coast and that was my training ground,” she stated.

While at it, the young presenter enrolled at the African University College of Communications in 2003 and then  later Central University College to read Management Studies.

“Talent wasn’t enough to take me to my destination. I needed to add value to that and that was my motivation to pursue further education”, she said.

Eventually, Mamavi moved to Citi FM after her National Service and later hosted Today’s Woman on TV3.

Currently, Mamavi is host of Multi TV’s AM Show,  Rhythms A to Z and a stand-in host for Joy FM’s Cosmopolitan Mix. In addition, the multi-talented woman is a copy writer, voice-over artist and MC.

“People are not sure they want to take you on, they have doubts or they want something more. It’s always very tricky. It takes a longer time to reach out to your dreams sometimes but if I look at how far I have come, then it has been worth it,” she added.

An easy going lady, Mamavi says the reason she seem to shun the spotlight that comes with public attention is because she loves to tame her “ego under the lock and key of humility”.

She had these parting words for her fans, “Let your talent speak for you because when you don’t use the right means to get to your goals, your position becomes shaky and unstable. Hardwork and perseverance are the key to success,” she stated.

US rapper 50 Cent has posted a film on Instagram showing his new house in Africa even though he has filed for bankruptcy in the US.

He said on the post: "My crib is almost finished in AFRICA. I'm gonna have the craziest House warming party ever."

In July he filed for bankruptcy days after a jury ruled he had to pay $5m (£3.2m) to a woman suing him over a leaked sex tape.

 

Forbes estimated in May that 50 Cent's net worth was $155m.

He doesn't mention on Instagram where in Africa the new house is located, saying only: "I'll explain later. I got a good life Man."

The video shows people working outside the house but gives few clues to its location.

Reaction across the media and Twitter has been that of surprise given he had filed for bankruptcy.

The entertainer, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, said at the time that filing for bankruptcy was a "strategic business move".

Chapter 11 bankruptcy gives time for a business to re-organise finances while protecting it from creditors' demands.

The Grammy-award winning rapper's business interests have included clothes, boxing, drinks, and mining.

His stake in VitaminWater reportedly netted him tens of millions of dollars when Coca-Cola bought the drinks brand in 2007.​

His 2003 album Get Rich or Die Tryin‍' catapulted him to global fame.

Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh kept the world guessing about her relationship status in the past few months but she definitely cleared things up this when she had her introduction ceremony to Oladunni Obasanjo Churchill in her hometown in Port-Harcourt.

Her hubby, Oladunni is said to be one of Former President Olusegun Obasanjo‘s children.

From prayers from her grandmother to sharing a kiss with her grandmother, Tonto Dikeh, who has since changed her name to Mrs. Tonto Wigo Dikeh-Churchill on social media, looked extremely happy and joyful at the ceremony.

 

 

Deloris Frimpong Manso aka Delay has said that dealing with men in terms of dating has become difficult because her father was absent in her life while growing up.

She said this on her own show thus The Delay Show while interviewing actress Ahouf3 Patri.

Delay was sharing in the pain Ahouf3 Patri was going through due to the punishment her father meted out on her and her mother by abandoning them.

“I had an absentee father, mine was worst and growing up it has really affected me. To the extent that my relationship with men is nothing to write home about when it comes to dating them. Because of what my dad did, it has made it difficult for me.

“Most of the time, I have a clear cut picture on what I want to do so far as my job is concerned, but when it comes to men, it is always difficult to adjust because I have been holding on to too much like there is some kind of anger,” Delay said.
