Rosemond Brown Apologizes To “Waakye” But His Response Leaves More Questions Than Answers.

Published

on

Instagram sensation Rosemond Brown finally apologized to Prince Yawson (Waakye) as she made a shocking U-turn on her earlier allegations which was; naming him as one of the people she slept with in the industry.

Nonconforming “Akuapem Polo” on the “Delay show” some weeks ago confidently posited that she had slept with veteran actors Waakye, Fred Amugi and some other prominent actors in her bid to earn roles in the movie industry.

Social media went avid as usual, but It’s obvious she had realized her mistakes and seeks to right her wrongs.

At a press Conference, Rosemond remorsefully made a U-turn and indicated that she said all that in order to be in the news. Interesting what she can do to trend Huh!

“I want everyone here to help me say sorry to my father here because I made some comments about him on Delay’s show. Everyone who knows me is aware that I’ve been in this industry for nine years, but I was not known so I now say and do anything just for the hype. I’m so sorry that I said all that,” the “Hype-drowned” Rosemond said.

Waakye who was present at the venue when asked how he feels about the whole scuffle responded in a way that made it obvious the two were involved somehow as he was tight lipped.

“Whatever she did, it was not as if she was telling the world I’m a thief, or I’m a murderer or I have forced something out of someone, there is this saying, a drowning man will catch at a straw, she feels this are the people I could use to get to the destination I want to get to, so if now she has realized and have come to apologies, who am I?” He quizzed as he accepted her apology.

Asked if there was any truth in the sex allegations, the veteran responded in a way that made me feel whatever the young lady said was true.

He swings over the question, saying, “I wouldn’t want to go there”.

Ivan Quashigah Makes A Shocking Revelation About Fella Makafui.

Published

on

Ivan Quarshigah, a film maker, director, producer and CEO of Farmhouse Productions, producers of popular TV series YOLO yesterday during a presentation made shocking revelations about actress Fella Makafui.

The ace filmmaker who was taking participants through the basics of film making in an attempt to explain how casting is done and how to identify characters ended up revealing how Fella cried when she was asked to play Serwaa; “The villager to sell bread in the series.”

He said, “Fella Makafui Cried when she was asked to speak bad English and act like a bread seller in Yolo.” The shocker came when he added, “But she was one of the brilliant people on that set.”

Fella may have come across as a tough person (Hard girl) looking at all the negative publicity she had been hit with in recent times, but behind that hard girl is a girl who cried when she was handed her breakthrough role.

I personally have no doubt about her braininess since it’s evident for all to see. From playing “The villager to sell bread in the series.” A role that many will describe as menial, today Fella has become a household name and an entrepreneur.

Ivan promised, our favorite youthful TV series Yolo will soon return before end of year.

Celebrated Cinematographer Reveals Why Ghanaian Movies Don’t Go International.

Published

Yaw Ladzekpo, a Cinematographer, director, fixer and also a lecture divulged why Ghanaian movies don’t make it onto international platforms.

At the MTN Open Coffee on the 5th of September, 2018 at the MTN house during a presentation on the topic “understanding the art and craft of cinematography”, he noted the reason why Ghanaian movies don’t make it on to international platforms.

To the surprise of the audience, he said, “Ghanaian movies are not going international because Ghanaian Cinematographers just use the camera as a recording tool and not a story telling tool.”

He also added, “Cinematographers are supposed to be the most brilliant and knowledgeable people on set.”

As to what he means by telling a story with the camera and not just recording, he elaborated.

In shooting a movie, every camera shot and angle should tell a story and not just to record the scene for editing.

If you don’t tell a story with your shots, no international platform will give you a listening. He said the above as he explained the types of shoots and the reasoning behind it and how to convey a message of importance or relevance of the cast or surroundings in a scene.

This edition of the MTN Open coffee has been a great initiative to enlighten people in the arts and entertainment circle and if you are yet to be a part, you are doing yourself a great disservice.
