Former Miss Malaika Ghana, model and entrepreneur, Hamamat Montia, has shared what kept her going after her divorce, her twin girls.
“You know when things did not go as planned, it was painful, it hurt but I had to be strong. I looked around to find what could keep me going then one day, I heard my daughters say to each other that they wanted to be like me when they grew up and that was the wake up call for me, that I had to pick up the pieces and move on”.
“If not for anything at all, I want to be that great woman, that strong mommy they can look up to. I was expected to look someway because my partner had moved on way earlier than I expected but no, I didn’t, I stood my grounds and today, I am here, I just want to give my children a reason to be happy,” she said in an interview with Showbiz.
The now “Shea butter ambassador” also mentioned that she believed her marriage not working was a fault from both she and her ex.
“I would blame myself too because it takes two people to make it work but if I am not in a happy place, I will not stay there because of my children, no, I need to leave to be strong and hold them down when the need arises.
“I know there are lots of women who are in marriages that are causing them pain but are staying with the excuse that they want the best for their children but no, you cannot hold your children down when you kick the bucket, when you are devastated etc,” she said.
The model also touched on her skin and how it inspired her to go into the shea butter business.
“My experience has taught me that as Africans, we need to accept and celebrate our skin and take care of it and this birthed my shea butter business.
“I have come to realise that shea butter has a lot of benefits so instead of using all those creams with chemicals in it, use shea butter, it has a lot of benefits”, she added.
Hamamat also had a few words to say to people who are about to get married, she mentioned that happiness is key.
To those who are about to get married, she had these words, “Happiness is key and remember that whatever the turnout of events are, you have a role to play. Take your time and make sure you truly know the person” , the model added.
Hamamat Montia is the author of “Zuzu and Sasa”, a book inspired by her twins, a model and an entrepreneur. She is currently promoting her new business venture, a village spa, called Hamamat African Village.

I Blame The Media For The Influx Of Slay Queen Syndrome : Ama K. Abebrese Reveals
Ghanaian actress and TV personality, Ama K. Abebrese, is blaming the media for contributing to creating the slay queen phenomena.
According to her, most of these slay queens have become popular because the media gives them attention.
“Most of the names I hear on social media are as a result of the media giving these slay queens attention on their platforms. There is no way I would have heard of such names if it were not for the media,” she told Showbiz recently.
According to Ama K. Abebrese, the media giving attention to these slay queens has influenced many other young girls who all want to be there because they know they will be famous when the media gives them the mileage.
Her advice to social media users is to be careful about what they put out there, “what you put on social media is for the world to see and you should, therefore, be careful what goes out there.
She added, “you can be having fun today but in some years to come when you want to take up a job, that is when your videos or whatever you did will be played back to you. Do whatever you are comfortable with but be careful what goes out there,” she said.
Ama K, as she is popularly known, also revealed that a lot of people were living fake lifestyles on social media. I know some ladies who borrow shoes and clothes to take pictures on social media and return them when they are done with what they wanted to use them for,” she said.
Away from the social media stuff, Ama K. Abebrese spoke about the movie industry and indicated that although things were not how they used to be, they could be better.
She has started her new TV show, Champions of Society, on Kwesé TV. The show tackles social and health issues and involves Ama K. talking directly to the people whose lives they affect.
Ama K. Abebrese started hosting TV shows in her teens on YCTV in London. She went on to present on BBC2, OBE TV, Viasat 1, TV3, Ebonylife TV and many others.
I’m Not Going To Quit Black Avenue Muzik : Sefa
Sefa, a signee of D-Black’s Black Avenue Muzik (BAM), has opened up about her label mates who have exited the BAM label, saying she has no cause to worry.
According to Sefa, she is currently happy at the label and has no plan of quitting the record label.
The talented songstress, who joined BAM over a year ago, and another young talent Mz Forson are currently the only artistes left at BAM.
This was after four artistes‒ including Wisa Greid, DahLin Gage and Freda Rhymes‒ announced their exit from the record label weeks ago.
The artistes didn’t state their reasons for the exit, but D-Black said at a press conference on Friday that it’s a mutual decision to part ways with the four artistes.
According to Sefa, everyone has the right in life to follow which direction they deem fit. There is, therefore, no absolute reason she should be worried when other signees decide to pursue different paths.
“My ex-label mates are very strong people and I know they have a passion for me. Wherever they go you can see the music in them. I don’t know the reason why they left and I am sure they have their own reasons, but as long as I know they are not giving up their dreams that is what makes me happy because they really have amazing talents. It’s their passion; they eat and breathe music. So, that’s my main concern,” she explained.
“I don’t where God wants me to be the next two years or one year but then anything that happens God knows best,” she added.
Sefa now has a song with Jupiter titled ‘Marry Me’, ‘Pepper’ featuring Bisa K Dei, ‘Odo Yewu’ and ‘Shuga’ featuring Dope Nation which she released a video not long ago.
Talking about her passion for music and what she wishes to become in the near future, she said:
“I actually wanted to do music and I also have thought of becoming an air hostess. But when I was growing up, I was really big, so somebody told me that I am too fat to be an air hostess. So, I changed my mind to do business until when my mother started pushing me to start singing in front of the congregation,” she stated.
