Shatta Wale’s Exclusion From Accra In Paris Concert Explained 



The French Ambassador to Ghana, H.E Anne Sophie Ave, has explained why popular dancehall artist Shatta Wale was excluded from the maiden Accra in Paris concert.

Her explanation comes on the back of fans pushing for answers when they failed to see the SM president at the concert.

According to her response, the French Embassy set up Accra in Paris to highlight previous cooperation between French and Ghanaian musicians. As a result, Shatta Wale did not make the cut since he lacked French traits.

In providing an explanation for Shatta Wale,s exclusion from the Accra in Paris, H.E Anne Sophie Ave, said “he did not meet the requirements for the show.”

“How could anyone forget about @shattawalegh?… Again the concert was about french and Ghanaian artists who had done featuring together” she said as a response to several tweets.

Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Kwabena Kwabena, and Fameye performed alongside other well-known French acts in front of an international audience in Accra, Paris.

David Osei Reveals Jackie Appiah’s Source Of Wealth After Her Mansion Went Viral



Despite being hailed after a video of her plush mansion was uploaded online, Ghanaian actress Jackie Appiah has for some unknown reasons come under pressure to disclose her source of wealth.

Thanks to Nigerian actress Luchy Donalds, Jackie has been trending on various social media platforms for 3 days after she paid a visit to her Ghanaian colleague and was stunned by the luxury she saw in her house.

Luchy could not help by shout with openmouthed astonishment as she filmed herself taking a tour of the mega house owned by her fellow woman, which consequently landed online.

Hours after the video received plaudits, it momentarily started courting unpleasant reactions from a section of social media users who have brought Jackie’s source of wealth under scrutiny.

Many have wondered whether the actress single-handedly put up her magnificent house from funds accrued from her acting career over the years or if she has unknown people sponsoring her with money after opening her legs for them.

But actor Prince Davido Osei has waded into the conversation with a strong defence for his colleague against trolls who cannot celebrate her achievement without raising doubts.

He wrote: “These ladies invest the monies they make from movies and other deals! When Jackie started doing UB40 TVC, Computer Ads was in Legon many years ago!!”

While slamming naysayers for trying to credit Jackie Appiah’s success to politicians and some unknown big men, David Osei also issued a stern warning to trolls who have plans of downplaying his hard work when he makes a groundbreaking leap in life.

He noted that now that he’s hustling with his ‘sweat’ as an actor, people are not talking about it but would emerge to say he benefited hugely from his affiliation to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) when he makes it big in the future.

He wrote: “I am out here, hustling 6/8 to do my tours with my sweat, tomorrow if I hit some monkey will come and say it’s NPP money Gyimi saa.. Some of us hustlers we never claim to be rich, we work hard filming day&night exploring other avenues to make money.”

Johnny Depp ‘Back For Pirates Of Caribbean Film In $300m Deal’



Disney are reportedly hoping to get Johnny Depp to star in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film and a Disney Plus spin-off series in a $300 million deal.

Bosses are said to want the actor, 59, to reprise his role as the legendary Captain Jack Sparrow after he won his blockbuster legal battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, earlier this month.

Johnny was reportedly dropped from the franchise in 2018 and said during his recent defamation trial he wouldn’t be open to returning in the future.

A source however has claimed Disney want the actor to reprise his iconic role in not just the sixth film, but also a spin-off series exploring the character’s backstory.

The insider told Poptopic the company are keen to get Depp back for the sixth film as well as the spin-off series – with it claimed they’re offering him around £244 million.

They told the outlet earlier this month: “Disney are very interested in patching up their relationship with [Depp].”

The source said the company reached out to Depp prior to his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard – which concluded with him winning the legal battle.

They claimed Disney had asked if he would be interested in returning for another film, with him reportedly sent a gift basket and a “heartfelt letter” at some point by them.

The source said: “The studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow – so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as [his character].”

The source claimed Disney are preparing a deal that’s worth $301 million (£244 million), including a sizeable donation to a charity of Depp’s choice.

Depp was reportedly dropped from the sixth film around the time that his ex-wife Heard wrote her now-infamous Washington Post op-ed about domestic abuse.

The actor sued Heard for $50 million after she wrote the op-ed in 2018 in which she called herself a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Heard countersued Depp for $100 million.
