I paid Komla Dumor’s school fees – Nana Konadu

Ghana’s former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has revealed she took care of all the tuition bills of late broadcaster Komla Dumor at the university level.

According to her, the ace British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) screen icon was her husband Jerry John Rawlings’ friend’s son and had to help him complete tertiary level education although she did not know him much then.

“I paid Komla Dumor’s fees at the university,” Konadu disclosed to Bola Ray on personality profile show Starr Chat on Wednesday.

The tough-talking ex-First Lady made the revelation when the issue of an infamous identification haircut case at the Castle – then seat of Ghana’s government – came up which saw Dumor interviewing her on the case.

Explain hardships to Ghanaians – Otumfuo to Mahama

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has advised President John Mahama’s government to explain to Ghanaians the reasons for some government policies that have worsened the living conditions of Ghanaians.

According to the overlord of Asante, government’s decision to sign up for a bailout from the International Monitory Fund (IMF) should be explained to Ghanaians because it has a direct effect on the life of the ordinary Ghanaian.

“When explanations are made, Ghanaians will understand the need to endure short-term hardships with the hope of relief in the long term,” he said.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II made the remarks when President John Dramani Mahama called on him on Wednesday June 29 at his Manhyia Palace on the second day of his Accounting to the People tour in the Ashanti Region.

“With the IMF bailout, you need to be silent on some of the arrangements, but there is the need to explain some of the agreement to Ghanaians, for example, over why utility tariffs have gone up, and that if t…

I don’t miss being the First Lady – Nana Konadu

The founder of the National Democratic Party (NDP) and wife of Ghana’s former President Jerry John Rawlings has revealed that she does not miss being a First Lady.

Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings said even though she misses the high life of traveling around the world with her husband to negotiate deals for Ghana, she hasn’t missed the pressures of being a First Lady since they left office in 2000.

“I don’t [miss being the First Lady] because I don’t think I was doing anything that was extra that I am not doing now,” the founder of the 31st December Women’s Movement told Bola Ray host of Starr Chat Wednesday.

She added “...to be able to travel with my husband and look for finance for Ghana because when I go out I am not going to enjoy myself, I am looking companies that are coming to help with hospitals, institutions that can help us develop certain skills for Ghanaian youth, now it is not like that anymore and I do miss that.”

Nana Konadu was born on November 17, 1948. She atten…

PHOTOS: Meet the Beautiful Wife of Prophet Bernard Afresa Taylor | the Woman He Has Two Kids With & Allegedly Banging Other Church Members Behind Her

Men are dogs—some would argue but even if a dog decides to be loyal, it does so passionately.

Yet, some married men who have sworn sacred oaths of faithfulness continue to sleep with multiple women behind their wives, shockingly the men of God seem to be the true game leaders.

Yesterday, GhanaCelebrities.Com reported a story of a woman who claims Prophet Bernard Afresa Taylor of Destiny Empowerment Chapel International, a supposed man of God has allegedly be sleeping with the female members of his church, including herself and has even got her pregnant three times which under his instructions and cost payments, all the pregnancies were aborted.

This woman, obviously somewhat hurt, sent in several Whatsapp Conversations between her and allegedly Prophet Taylor—a married man of God with two beautiful kids.

Apart from the fact that Prophet Bernard Afresa Taylor claims to be a man of God and commands respect in such regard, he is a damn married man—and yet, none of these seems to ha…

Beautiful Women Who Cannot Attract Men Are Lazy - Counsellor Lutterodt

Self-acclaimed relationship and marriage counselor, Counselor Lutterodt is back with his stories again.

This time around, Counselor Lutterodt is hitting hard at ladies saying any woman who’s unable to get a man to marry her is lazy. He disclosed this when he appeared on Naa Ashorkor’s Tales from the powder room show.

“How can a beautiful woman walk from Monday to Friday, and no man walks to her and say hi? That woman should cry out to God or if that person is not a Christian, she can consult a juju person because for a lady, men should be chasing you here and there.” He disclosed.

When asked by Naa why some ladies attract wrong men, Counselor Lutterodt stated that if constantly a lady is attracting wrong men, then that lady should check where she is and that some places are meant to attract the wrong person.

He said, “Constantly, if wrong men are coming your way, then check where you are because some places are meant to attract the wrong person at a specific time.”

Corruption, broken economy, dumsor are Mahama’s legacy - Akufo-Addo

“When the record of Ghana’s history in the 4th Republic is being written, we can point to the establishment of the District Assembly concept, which sought to deepen popular participation in governance, as originating from former President Rawlings.

“The establishment of the National Health Insurance Scheme, which delivered affordable, quality healthcare to Ghanaians, bears the name of President Kufuor. President Mills was not with us for long. In the Five years of President Mahama, what can we say is his legacy? What has he done to ensure Ghana moves forward? Perhaps it is the ‘dumsor,’” the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, said at Fotobi, in the Nsawam/Adoagyiri constituency, at the commencement of his 5-day tour of the Eastern region.

Addressing a durbar held in his honour by Nana Kofi Osae Ababio, Chief of Fotobi, Nana Akufo-Addo noted that President Mahama’s tenure of office has been marked by the wanton theft of stat…
