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



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”.

After a freak accident, Carys and Max are left adrift in space with nothing to hold onto but each other. As they fall, they can’t help but look back at the world they left behind. A world whose rules they couldn’t submit to, a place where they never really belonged; a home they’re determined to get back to because they’ve come too far to lose each other now. While their air ticks dangerously low, one is offered the chance of salvation—but who will take it?

No More Politics; I’ve Learnt My Lessons – Maame Dokono



Veteran actress Grace Omaboe, popularly known as Maame Dokono, has revealed that she is no longer going to be actively involved in politics again.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, she said she has learnt a lot of lessons from her involvement in political activities.

“The disgrace and insults I received for going into politics openly was too much for me. I have learnt my lessons and will not go into politics again. Even if I will go into politics, I will be behind the scenes and not as openly as did in the past,” she said.

Maame Dokono was a staunch member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) before she defected to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and she had her fair share of insults while with the NDC and when she eventually defected to the NPP. “Like everyone else, I have my political party but I won’t be seen openly doing politics as I used to do in the past. It won’t ever happen again, trust me,” she said.

Maame Dokono currently runs her school, the Graceful Grace School, at Adentan. It used to be the Peace and Love Orphanage but she has converted it into a school which she says is not doing badly.

“It hasn’t been easy but we are managing and looking up to God. Some of the pupils don’t even pay their fees but what can we do? We have always been there for the poor so we manage the situation,” she said.

Commenting on the local movie industry, the Obra star said it had gone down drastically. “It has really gone down, though some are still producing, I know Kumawood for instance is still quite active. Fortunately for me, I have done about four movies recently, including one for Salma Mumin and I have another two to shoot in December.”

At age 72, Maame Dokono believes that going on set keeps her active, apart from the fact that she enjoys being on set.

“Though I have a school, I like to go out and work because it is always fun to be on set. I really had fun on Salma’s set playing the mother of Jackie Appiah. There were a lot of stars in that movie and we had so much fun on set,” she recalled.

She is of the opinion that the big names in the movie industry seem to be missing in action now.

“We don’t see the big shots in the industry doing productions and that is rather unfortunate,” she said.

Maame Dokono really looks good for someone her age and she says it is all by the grace of God and taking good care of herself.

“Apart from the intermittent pains in my knees, I must admit that I am very fine and healthy. I take a lot of vitamins and food supplements and watch what I eat. I don’t joke with my plantain and kontonmire at all,” she said with laughter.

“Everyone needs to have God in his or her life. He is your hope and He will do everything for you. God has been very good to me,” she stressed.

Maame Dokono says she also visits her children abroad every now and adds that her children are very supportive of her and that has really helped her.

Guess what? She still shoots the popular Obra series on GTV.

“Yes, Obra is still on air. We go for rehearsals and shoot. We are given something small at the end of the month. It’s not much but we still do it for the love of it,” she stated.
