Making Money Is Important But Making An Impact Is the Best : Cookie States




While some people will gladly leave one organization to the other if offered huge sums of money, Beautiful TV presenter Shirley Tibila popularly known as Cookie has stated emphatically that, there is no way she will leave her current media house to join another one no matter the amount involved.

While “poaching” is exciting especially if the organization poaching you is offering you huge sums of money, it does not always favour everyone as some people get poached and end up becoming irrelevant, and for co-host of Starr Drive on Starr FM, Shirley Tibila, there is no point in enjoying the money while your career takes a nosedive.

In a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz Cookie said she would prefer to be at her current place of work than move to a new place and not make any impact.

“Everyone needs money as a way of motivation, but there is no way I will move to a new place when I know very well I will not make any impact there. What is the point of going after the money if no one hears of me again? A lot of radio presenters have made such moves and are regretting it now,” she said.

According to Cookie, who is also the host of Tales From the Powder Room on GHOne TV, what would make her move would be the bigger platform she would be getting with her new station and not necessarily the money.

“Money is sometimes not everything but rather the platform you are on and the impact you make, and that has always been my motivation. I might not be around for a long time but I know where I am headed and I am, therefore, very careful who and where I want my brand to be associated with,” she said.

Cookie admitted she had had one or two media houses try to woo her, but she declined the offers because of the brand she wanted to build for herself.

Cookie has had the opportunity to host AirtelTigo Fest, Radio and Television Personality (RTP) Awards, 3Music Awards, Sarkodie’s Rapperholic launch, among others. She however revealed that combining her radio and TV show with emceeing could be stressful sometimes.

“I must confess it has not been easy combining the three, but Cookie is a hardworking lady who loves what she does. Although it sometimes becomes unbearable due to the pressure, I am able to hold it together because I am a strong woman,” she bemoaned.

Speaking on Tales From the Powder Room, Cookie said the positive messages she received on a daily basis were enough motivation for her to continue doing her show.

“I have hosted Tales From the Powder Room for just a year and the positive messages I receive are amazing. I treated a topic about a young girl who had been sexually abused by her father and had two children with him. A lot of such victims opened up about their ordeal,” she revealed.

In the next five years, Cookie says she would want Tales From the Powder Room to be the number one show in Ghana and beyond.

John Legend Announces Double Album ‘Legend,’ Reveals Tracklist



John Legend, R&B superstar has announced his eighth studio album, Legend, which will be released on Sept. 9.

Executive produced by Legend and Ryan Tedder, the double album marks the first time the 12-time Grammy winner has officially embraced his legendary name.

“Until this point, I’ve never used an aspect of my name as the title of an album,” Legend said. “I had to earn that, to live up to it by delivering in the performance and the music. And this is me saying, I’m proud of who I am, I’m confident in the work I’ve done, and I’m just going to declare it.”

The 24-track album is divided into two acts and includes appearances from Rick Ross, Jhene Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign, Jazmine Sullivan, Amber Mark, Jada Kingdom, Rapsody, Ledisi, and Saweetie, who joins Legend on his new single “All She Wanna Do.”

“It kinda reminds me of Michael Jackson Off the Wall energy, Whitney Houston ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody,’ and it feels so good,” he said of the uplifting track, which was co-written and produced by Tedder, Monsters and Strangerz, Zach Sketon, Andrew DeRoberts, and Halatrax. “It’s about a woman that you see out at a club who is just living her best life, embracing the party life, and you want to be a part of it.”

The album has previously spawned singles including “Honey” with Muni Long and “Dope” featuring JID.

Earlier this week, Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen announced that they are expecting another child, two years after the pregnancy loss of their third child, Jack.
