Forbes is the place to go for numbers — but maybe not for words.

Many people are taking issue with the magazine’s definition of ‘self-made’ after it placed Kylie Jenner on its latest cover.

Forbes faces backlash for calling Kylie Jenner a ‘self-made’ billionaire

The publication branded her the ‘cosmetics queen’, declaring on the cover: ‘At 21, she’s set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire. Welcome to the era of extreme fame leverage.’

According to the publication, Kylie – who is set to turn 21 on August 10 – is currently worth an estimated $900million thanks to her cosmetics line.

The Internet immediately lit up with reaction, with even Dictionary.com appearing to throw shade.

On Wednesday it tweeted the definition: ‘Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided.

‘Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman,’ it added, posting a link to the Forbes article.

Self-made or not, once she crosses the $1billion mark, she will unseat Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.

Stonebwoy

YouTube, LLC an American video-sharing website has certified Stonebwoy’s Epistle Of Mama album two-phase; reggae & afrobeats album for clocking over 10 million-plus streams in addition to 100k subscribers on YouTube based on the company’s statistics. The endorsement came with a citation from the company.

This to me is one of the greatest achievement in the life of a reggae/dancehall artist in Ghana looking at how far the journey has been but worth traveling. It’s an eye-opener to every reggae/dancehall artists and all artists in general drawing attention to the fact that, there is a market for every music genre. The only thing is, it depends on what you’re promoting.

If we water down the whole endorsement thing from YouTube, one will be forced to ask, what will influence these unbelievable number of people jamming to an album is with so much enthusiasm? It all boils down to promoting good content, alluring storylines, explore sounds, be original, staying relevant as possible and learning more about the music business.

I Had To Move On : GMB 2011 Winner Akua Speaks After Divorce With Angel Group Millionaire

Published

Sally Akua Amoakowaa Mensah

The fourth wife of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Angel Group of Companies, Sally Akua Amoakowaa Mensah is consoling herself with wise sayings after announcing her divorce to the businessman earlier this week.

The 2011 winner of TV3’s Ghana’s Most Beautiful beauty pageant and General Manager of Angel TV announced that her marriage to Dr. Kwaku Oteng was over as reported by us.

According to her, it was as a result of a stressful situation she found herself and therefore called it quits by posting on her Instagram page only to delete it an hour later by which time it had already gone viral.

Sometimes you just have to learn how to walk away. When it’s not making you happy and it’s rather stressing you take a bow. My marriage of eight years is over.

I won’t give anyone the right to take away my happiness. I’m walking from everything that is stressing me”, she stated in the said post.

She has since refused to confirm or deny her own post but appear to be consoling herself with new posts with the latest which reads” Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

Sally in a recent interview professed her unflinching love for the man stating that that love is the major factor in her marriage.

She added that Dr. Oteng is one humble human being that any individual would want to hang out with so it was easy for her to say yes when he proposed marriage.

The mother of two revealed that she gave birth before marrying the Millionaire so there was no iota of truth in the hearsay that her spouse was pushed to marry her due to the pregnancy.
