Obrafour’s ‘Pae Mu Ka’ documentary suspended, here’s why

Renowned music producer, Hammer, has revealed the premiere of the much anticipated ‘Pae Mu Ka’ documentary has been suspended till further notice.

The producer born Edward Nana Poku Osei, said that he has spotted some inconsistencies in the accounts some people in the documentary that need to be corrected.

The ‘Pae Mu Ka’ documentary, which tells the story of Obrafour’s 20 years music journey, was supposed to be premiered at the Silverbird Cinemas on September 27, 2019.

Hammer told Mamavi Owusu-Aboagye on the Cosmopolitan Mix, Wednesday, that “the issue is that people are making it about themselves, everybody seems to have an opinion about events, I was there and realised some of these people interviewed are not speaking the truth.”

He said, it is very important the documentary comes out correctly and all facts are checked.

Hammer who had produced Obrafour’s debut album ‘Pae Mu Ka’ stated that the producers, although noticed some of these inconsistencies, are influenced by the premiere date to fast forward everything regardless of the mistakes.

“This is for posterity and a one-day premier can’t dictate how it should be done,” he added.

The Pae Mu Ka album since its release 20 years ago, has had a huge influence on many people which Hammer believes, it is only right today’s youth in music and future generations are told the truth and details that surrounded the album.

“This album changed a lot in our country. These kids who are making music today have a right to know everything that happened after Reggie and how Obrafour sustained rap which was frowned upon. It is very important that the facts are right,” he added.

Hammer disclosed, Obrafour had not seen the details of the reports he had to call for the suspension.

He explained the producers want to keep the documentary as independent as possible without his influence.”

“So I spoke to Obrafour and his team about my concerns and they immediately agreed with me and proceeded to suspend the premiere,” he stated.

Nana Aba Anamoah dedicates award to ‘evil best friend’

Newscaster, Nana Aba Anamoah, has been crowned over-all winner of the 2019 edition Radio and Television Personality (RTP) of the Year, for the second conservative time and she has dedicated the award to her “evil best friend”.

The “State of the Nation”, host beating competition from Stacy Amoateng, Abeiku Aggrey Santana, Patrick Osei Agyeman, Bernard Avle and Umaru Sanda Amadu, took to social media to disclose how her career practically got smashed due to the evil intentions of a best friend some years ago.

According to the celebrated news anchor, even though she feels remorseful for not forgiving her friend when she expressed regret, she is endlessly appreciative of the “Juju woman” who was supposed to have destroyed her life for drawing her attention to the friend’s objective.

She said, “Last night, I was named the TV Development show host of the year and the biggest of the night, RADIO and TV Personality of the year”.

“I dedicate this to a best friend from 8 years ago who dragged me and every present I ever got her, to a juju woman to destroy the love and affection Ghanaians, colleagues and bosses had for me at the time. 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”.
“To all those who voted for me, YOU ARE PERFECT. Thank you for your part in my journey. I don’t take it for granted”.

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.
