Congratulating Sarkodie won’t put money in my pocket – Shatta Wale

Self-acclaimed Dancehall King, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr, known in the showbiz circle as Shatta Wale, has revealed reasons he will not congratulate award-winning rapper, Sarkodie, on his latest achievement.

Sarkodie made history a week ago when he became the first artiste to be crowned the Best International Flow Act at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards.

The rapper’s latest achievement was met with excitement on social media as fellow musicians and music-loving fans lauded his efforts in selling Ghana’s music to the world.

Shatta Wale, speaking on Paul Adom-Octchere’s Good Evening Ghana show to explain why he has still not congratulated Sarkodie on any of his social media handles said, it is unnecessary for him to do that.

According to him, it’s a complete waste of time and congratulating Sarkodie will not in any way put money in his pocket, hence the reason he has been mute on the issue.

He further stated that his general focus is on money and not awards people win.

“I don’t think it’s necessary…yes award is award, I don’t see award like something that will get me money into my account…I don’t see it like it’s important,” he said on the show.

Asked by the host if he hates Sarkodie, the Dancehall King said, “I don’t dislike him,” but only hates the kind of life he lives because he paints a ‘perfect’ picture of himself which isn’t true in real life.

Describing the kind of life Sarkodie’s lives, Shatta Wale said the rapper lives a “lie life”.

Sarkodie and Shatta Wale, once good friends turned their backs on each other throwing unending shades at each other after the latter raged at Sarkodie in a series of interviews.

The beef between the two parties began when Shatta Wale agreed with Sarkodie to charge a specific amount for a show they were both billed for but according to the former, Sarkodie betrayed him and charged less.

This made Shatta Wale on several media platforms describe Sarkodie as a poor artiste and also a hypocrite who goes about bragging as if there’s no problem with him.

Sarkodie, in turn, stated that Shatta Wale is not a good friend for the numerous attacks on him which caused him to release the famous Shatta Wale diss song, ‘My Advice’ on October 10, 2018.

The song went viral and got many Ghanaians and celebrities talking.

While the ‘beef’ seemed to have died, it rekindled again when Beyonce featured Shatta Wale on her ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ album.

Following the announcement of the feature, Sarkodie just like many other artistes took to Twitter to congratulate Shatta Wale but the dancehall artiste ignored Sarkodie’s tweet and retweeted many of the congratulatory messages he received.

Speaking in an interview later, Shatta Wale said he ignored Sarkodie’s tweet because he was a hypocrite and did not really mean his words.

I also dedicate this to the juju woman who decided against it and found a way to bring this to my attention. God loves a clean heart. Sister, I’m happy to see you doing your very best on TV. My biggest regret was not forgiving you early enough. I pray God blesses your efforts with one of these awards soon. I still love you”.

Angelina Jolie: Strong women are ‘shaped by men around them’

Angelina Jolie: Strong women are ‘shaped by men around them’

Angelina Jolie has championed the role men can play in shaping the personalities of young girls.

The actress, who stars in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, also said female characters in films should not have to be portrayed as physically tough in order to be considered strong.

“I think that, so often, when a story’s told which says ‘this is a strong woman’, she has to beat the man, or she has to be like the man, or she has to somehow not need the man,” Jolie told journalists at the film’s launch.

Referring to her own character in the film and Princess Aurora, played by Elle Fanning, Jolie said: “We both very much need and love and learn from the men.

“And so I think that’s also an important message for young girls, to find their own power, but to respect and learn from the men around them.”

She added: “We have strong women, but the character that is wrong in the film and has to be taken out is also a woman. We show very diverse types of women, between our characters, but also we have extraordinary men in the film, and I really want to press that point.”

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the sequel to 2014’s Maleficent, is released in the UK later this month and also stars Ed Skrein, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Fanning, who reprises her role of Princess Aurora in the film, echoed Jolie’s comments and said her character’s strength is not necessarily physical, unlike many princesses in children’s films.

“Aurora’s strength is her kindness, and she stays very true to herself, which is something I wanted to keep in the film. She is soft and feminine and wants to be a wife and have babies, and that’s a beautiful, strong thing that isn’t portrayed a lot on screen.

“A lot of the princesses are like ‘we’re gonna make her a strong princess! And make her tough, so we’re gonna make her fight!’ And it’s like, is that what being a strong woman means? Like, we just have to have a sword and have armour on and go fight? Aurora can do that in a different way, in a pink dress, and it’s beautiful that she keeps her softness and vulnerabilities.”

Don’t come my way – Vicky Zugah tells non-serious men

If there is one celebrity who has not been shy about putting her relationships in the public eye, it has to be Vicky Zugah.

The actress has been very open about her relationship struggles, including the alleged physical abuse she suffered at the hands of some of her exes.

And for someone who has had a roller-coaster ride with love, it is only right that she would be careful who she chooses to settle down with, so it is not out of place for her to say she doesn’t need non-serious men.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz on Tuesday, October 8, Vicky Zugah said she had been in a few relationships but the men she dated were not serious.

“At my age now, all I need is a caring and serious man. I don’t want any disturbance from a man who does not know what he wants. I need my peace of mind and I am not ready for any non-serious man around me,” she said.

The mother-of-two said while she waited for a good man to come her way, she was focusing on her business and her children.

“I am very single at the moment and focusing on my children and businesses. I have observed that men will do me no good but trouble me with their annoying characters. Being single helps me achieve whatever I set out to do,” she said.

Away from her relationships, Vicky Zugah who has featured in movies such as King Without Culture, Inner Woman, Oyaw No Agatha, Act of Shame, among others, said contrary to what some actors/actresses claimed, doing movies was not lucrative now.

“Let us not kid ourselves that there is money in movies. Some of us are doing this work because of the connections and for the fans. If it were the money alone, I would have quit movies long ago.

“The money we receive is nothing to write home about. Movies don’t give us a lot of money but they open doors to do other things and that is what has helped me so far,” she said.

Vicky Zugah said although the movie industry was slow lately, there was still hope that it could bounce back on its feet again, adding: “We just need to do a little restructuring of what is wrong with our industry and we are good to go.”

“It’s all about money. We need money to reshape the movie industry and everything will be fine. The actors are always ready to shoot movies because some of us love what we do,” she said.
