Grace Nortey

 

AT age 82, one would have expected that veteran actress Grace Nortey may be too old to be acting but she tells Showbiz that she is still able to play minor roles.

“When the role is not too demanding and I don’t have to read long scripts, I can manage to do it without too much of a problem,” she told this reporter recently.

“The few productions I have done in recent times were in Ga so I didn’t have to bother about scripts. My problem is with my eyes so I am unable to read scripts especially if I have so many lines. I would rather settle for something where I will be given the scenario so I can paraphrase,” she said.

According to the veteran actress, she was recently on set with Adjetey Anang and she had so much fun, “we worked on something quite recently and it was lots of fun, I enjoyed working with Adjetey and other young actors.”

For Grace Nortey, one reason why she still loves to act is because it kills her boredom, “When I am at home, I usually would eat and the next thing is let me lie down for a while.

“I lie down for a while, wake up and in the next hour or two, the urge to lie down comes back so it’s different when I am out there working,” she said.

Grace Nortey lost her husband some years ago and all her children are married with most of them outside the country including her actress daughter Sheila Nortey who is currently in the USA.

She started her acting career some five decades ago and has acted in countless movies with the likes of the late MacJordan Amartey, Fred Amugi, Victor Lutterodt, Grace Omaboe, the late George B.Williams, David Dontoh among others.

I may never collaborate with Tiwa Savage – Yemi Alade

Published

on

Nigerian Afropop singer, Yemi Alade, has said that she might never do a music project with Tiwa Savage, because of the “troubles” from their fans.

In an interview with Ndani TV, Alade said a collaboration might not attract positive reactions from the public.

“All my life when I’m choosing collaborations, it is not based on how I feel. It’s unfortunate that with the feelings and troubles that people keep stirring in our ways, it probably will never allow us to ever have a collaboration. Because you’re not sure the outcome would even be positive or be overrun by negative things and all the fights.

“When we do music, we do it so people can be happy, so when we do a song together, what are we fueling? What are we encouraging? That’s the most important question when I do collaborations, there is an aim. I think what would be would be,” Alade said.

In December 2018, the duo had engaged in a heated war of words on social media, after Alade claimed some female artistes enlarge their buttocks in photos to deceive fans.

Stonebwoy Jabs Media Over Hotel Brouhaha

Published

on

 

 

Stonebwoy has taken a swipe at a section of Ghana’s media over reports that he was kicked out of a hotel in Kenya, where he performed at this year’s Tomorrow’s Leaders Festival in Nairobi on Saturday.

According to the celebrated reggae dancehall artiste, the media is only interested in seeing artistes like him fail.

He is, therefore, considering taking a legal action against the media platforms that reported his alleged hotel brouhaha, something he described as “false.”

This week’s reports from Kenya indicated that this year’s Tomorrow’s Leaders Festival didn’t live to up its billing.

The concert, which had some top African artistes such as Nigeria’s Yemi Alade, Tanzania’s Diamond Platinumz and Ghana’s dancehall artiste Stonebwoy on the bill, was held on Saturday at Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.

However, things didn’t go as planned, and music fans reportedly left the event grounds in sheer disappointment.

Stonebwoy allegedly got kicked out of his hotel room after the event over non-payment of bills by the organisers.

Kenyan celebrity blogger Xtian Dela‒ who made the Stonebwoy allegation on Twitter‒ also refused to disclose the name of the particular hotel in question, but only added that Nigeria’s Yemi Alade also “got locked up in her hotel room of because of bills.”

The reports were subsequently picked up by Ghana’s media platforms.

“Sometimes I wonder why so much WICKEDNESS in our Country.. FALSE reportage Gives Us So Much JOY!! like I see these Things and I’m pushed to regret Representing For this same Flag. When All they want is TO SEE US FAIL.. anyway the LAW works and we might resort to it,” he tweeted.
