Sumsum Reveals Why Some Actress Refuse To Kiss Me

Kumawood actor Sumsum has revealed that female actresses do not kiss him in movies and he doesn’t know why they always deny his kisses even when directed by producers.

Speaking to Nana Romeo on Accra FM, he explained that “The only actress I have kissed wasn’t a star but I later had the opportunity to kiss Vivian Jill in a movie in which she needed a child and I had to sleep with her for her to conceive but she turned me down and dodged me when I tried to kiss her . I did not ask her why she dodged me because I didn’t believe in myself. Perhaps they think since I have big eyes, I might knock them with it which scares them away”.

He later expressed his disappointment in discrimination from female actresses when it comes to kissing in movies. Sunsum revealed that most female actresses especially those based in Accra fail to kiss him and few of his colleagues in the Kumawood movie industry but accept kisses from Majid and co, an action he “cannot think far” about.

“ I watched a movie, Lilwin was directed to kiss Jackie Appiah but she denied him. Assuming it was Majid, she would have kissed him passionately with no qualms.The female actresses discriminate when it comes to kissing in movies especially the Accra actresses, What do they take us for ? or because we speak twi ?”, he quizzed.However, reacting to whether an Accra actor has ever been rude to him, he said “yes, Van Vicker. I met him once and wanted to shake him by hand but he turned me down with a thumbs up, which clearly shows he has no regards for me and didn’t value the fact that I wanted to shake his hand as a colleague and when it happens this way the person doesn’t love you.”

2018 World Cup: Mohamed Salah ‘Happy In Camp’ Says Egyptian FA

The Egyptian Football Association says there is “no problem” between it and star player Mohamed Salah, amid reports the Liverpool forward could be set to quit the national team.
It had been reported the 26-year-old was considering his future with the squad after a series of disagreements.
Salah was reported to be unhappy after being photographed with Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov.
“Reports that Salah wants to leave are completely wrong,” the Egypt FA said.
“Mo is still with us now and he is happy in the camp. He is eating and laughing with his team-mates. He is training well and that means no problem.”
Salah had been pictured with Kadyrov, who was accused of using the player for political propaganda.
Egypt are based in Chechnya during the World Cup, and on Saturday Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas tweeted that he was “fuming”.
Kadyrov’s regime has been criticised for alleged human rights abuse, a claim he denied this week in a BBC interview.
Salah had a disagreement with the EFA in April over his image rights.
He was upset his image had been used in a promotion for official sponsor WE when he had a sponsorship deal with rival telecommunications firm Vodafone. He tweeted in Arabic: “Sorry but this is a major insult.”
Salah missed Egypt’s World Cup opener against Uruguay as he continued to recover from the shoulder injury that forced him out of Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat.
He returned for the game against hosts Russia and scored a penalty in Egypt’s 3-1 defeat.

Shatta Wale’s woes Deepen As Akufo Addo Unfollows Him On Twitter

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo perhaps to show his resentment for indecency has un-followed dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale on twitter.

The first gentleman of the land who is a known Shatta Movement (SM) fan and friend to the artiste did not assign reasons for his action.

It is believed the move is to register his disapproval and disgust at the recent post of a video attributed to the artiste in which he was seen enjoying a BJ from a lady described as a member of the Shatta Movement divas, aka home chicken or home fowl.

Shatta Wale was the first artiste to enjoy a presidential invite to the presidency shortly after the president took office and the occasion was his birthday.

The romance between the artiste and the president seem have gotten some other artistes jealous as they voiced their opposition to the selectivity by the president, with Dancehall artiste Stone Bwuoy sending a message via social media to the president to invite him too

Even though the artiste has apologised for the blunder, the apology doesn’t seem to have quelled the anger of some SM fans who have voiced out their opposition to the action

The presidency is said to be readying itself to issue a statement on the incident and particularly why the president un-followed his favourite

I have been single all my life – King Promise

 king-promise

Rising Ghanaian musician, King Promise, has made a very ‘controversial’ revelation about his relationship status contrary to the thinking of many Ghanaians.

Born Gregory Bortey Promise Newman, the ‘CCTV’ crooner has stated emphatically that he is not a fan of going on dates. He explained that he prefers to rather stay home all day.

In an interview on Celebrity Fanzone, he also revealed that he has never had a girlfriend and had gone on only three dates all his life.

“I have never gone on dates. I have been on two dates my whole life because I have never had a girlfriend. The first time I went on a date was three years ago and it happened twice after,” he disclosed.

“I will order the ‘waakye’ and take home. I am always home. A lot of stuff I used to do, I can no longer do,” he added.

It has been reported this week that some entertainments pundits are worried that with the opposition calling the president of Ghana ‘King Promise’, it might go against his brand.

However, King Promise has insisted that President Nana Akufo-Addo being tagged “King Promise” by his political opponents is something he finds funny, which doesn’t bother him.

“It’s funny when I see it all the time. I always laugh when I see stuff like that. I don’t have a problem with it honestly, having them call the president by my name kind of funny. He is the president, who’s gonna say he doesn’t like it. It doesn’t take anything away from me.”

King Promise is billed to perform at this year’s Ghana Meets Naija concert slated for June 9 at the Fantasy Dome in Accra.

Currently, his ‘CCTV’ track has taken over airwaves in Ghana.
