Former HIV/AIDS Ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Banned From Going To The UK

Joyce Dzidzor Mensah, is a Ghanaian citizen many Ghanaians believed was HIV positive and identified for 5 years as an official HIV/AIDS Ambassador for Ghana AIDS Commission.

Five years later, she came public to say her HIV status was a sham – thus, she never contracted the deadly disease. Explaining herself, she said she did what she did to help the AIDS Commission create awareness for the dreaded HIV/AIDS virus – plus she was treated as Ishmael by family and friends.

She later changed her story and indicated that she was HIV positive but had been cured. She went into hibernation only to resurface with another story cynics may consider cock and bull.

Resorting to her official Facebook wall, she shared how a man she was married to, died recently and how the UK Embassy, has banned her from entering UK.

Read her post below (unedited):

My story. My story never ends. O yes it will not end until my last breath…. I met a man at age 19 and got pregnant for him. He allegedly died of AIDS in 2007. He died when I was still pregnant. After giving birth I was thrown out of the house by my neighbors because I was tagged with AIDS.

I was on the street, no food, no money. I then started to talk about AIDS and premarital sex from the street to the churches until the Ghana AIDS commission officially made me an ambassador to educate people on AIDS. O.I.C.I also gave me enough training on public speaking and HIV education.

The AIDS commission letter terminated my appointment after using me for videos advert and Billboard only because I sung during an interview on gtv. They left me without paying me for my work. My son started suffering of stigma due to my program with the AIDS commission and so I denied every story I ever shared just to protect my him.

The man I got married to in 2010 only wanted an opportunity to travel outside Ghana and so when the opportunity came, he grabbed it through me, saying goodbye to Ghana and now he lives in London. Because of him, I’ve been banned from traveling to UK.

Our marriage ended with a baby girl. I met Edmund Akaniru in 2015 when I was working on my series. He worked for me as a camera man and we started going out. I told him I had two kids and I was 27. He said he loves kids and he was also 27.

I asked him if he wasn’t bothered about my HIV issues in the media and he replied “no I don’t care” he moved in with me and also shared his story with me. One day he came home with huge sums of money but went back with the money and returned empty handed.

He never told me where he got that money from. Few months later he told me he was a fraud boy and he used to do hacking. He explained to me how he and his friends hacked into MTN mobile money account and made so much money he later said the police was then after him and that was why he moved in with me.

One of his friends was arrested and his family paid fifty thousand Cedis to MTN out of the money they spent on alcohol, Drugs and women. He said he had changed and was never going to do internet fraud anymore. He said his father was a Nigerian and mother was half Ghanaian half German. But I later found out it was not true, both parents were Nigerians.

I had gotten pregnant for him and had a baby boy in 2016. After some time, truth about Eddie started to unveil. Eddie was 21 year as at the time I met him and not 27. I got angry with him and said to him I don’t want any small boy. He said age was just a number.

Later in 2016 Edmund started keeping late and sometimes returned home following day, there was physical and emotional abuse because I couldn’t give him money when he asked. December 2016 he started falling sick and treatment at kaneshie polyclinic didn’t work so I took him to a different hospital.

No doctor was able to diagnose him since all the tests conducted showed he was medically ok but no blood in his body. His family later took him to Nigeria and since his mother was a doctor I hoped it would be much better. But unfortunately nothing was diagnosed in Nigeria unless very low or no blood in his body.

I kept checking on him and he was later taken to prayer camp where he told me his aunt was behind his strange sickness. Eddie also apologized to me for being the cause of all my downfall. But I forgave him. No matter what, I still loved him. But sadly, I received a call that Eddie had passed on on the 7th May 2017 and was burried on 8th may 2017.

Image result for Joyce Dzidzor Mensah

Yes. Once again Joyce Dzidzor has lost a man. Eddie died at 24 and I just turned 30. the story of the general public as usual, name calling and accusing fingers pointing at Joyce. But what can I say?? Sorrows last for the night but joy surely comes in the morning. My story continues……?….

It’s senseless to watch Kumkum Bhagya at the expense of Kumawood movies – Opambour

Rev. Dr. Ebenezer Adarkwah Yiadom popularly known as Prophet 1 or better still Opambour has fire shots at Ghanaians concerning their attitude to the distaste of made-in-Ghana products, goods and services.

The founder and leader of Ebenezer Miracle Worship Centre was on Sunday (7th May, 2017) live on Prophet 1 television shared his sentiments on pertinent issues that are killing the progress of Ghana when he was interviewed by Osofo Chief.

The self-acclaimed nation prophet was pissed-off concerning why miracles performed by Ghanaian men of God are attributed to evil sources. However, when European prophets perform the same miracle, it becomes an unprecedented achievement to Ghanaians.

To him, he can’t figure out a single miracle he has not performed since he started his pastoral ministry. But Ghanaians have pretended as if they’ve not heard or seen the wonderful things he is doing.

When asked about his view on the rampant telenovelas that are circulating on our major television stations, he lamented and described the influx of soap opera as unfortunate.

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing and beard

According to the nation Prophet, the so called Kumkum Bhagya is causing a lot of problems in marriages. Simply put, majority of Ghanaian women who are addicted to Kumkum Bhagya will finish watching the segment before they’ll prepare food for their husbands or give them the needed attention and care.

He opined that, the influx of telenovelas are killing our movie industry especially Kumawood. To him, we have finest movie actors and actresses in Kumasi who are willing to produce movies to portray our rich cultural heritage.

No automatic alt text available.

Sadly, after incurring huge cost to shoot movies, Ghanaians have decided not to buy them but rather telenovela with archaic story lines. He added that there’s a serious devil at work among Ghanaians for embracing everything white as good.

Prophet 1 humorously concluded that, our people have developed a serious distaste to local goods to the extent that our men no longer loves Ghanaian ladies but Cote d’Ivoire, Nigeria, China and the likes. Maybe, he was making references to Elikem Kumordzie and Chris Attoh who are married to Zimbabwean and Nigerian ladies respectively.

Zimbabweans To Pay School Fees With ‘Goats And Sheep’

Parents in Zimbabwe can now pay the school fees of their children using livestock. That is the announcement from the country’s government.

Zimbabwe’s Minister Lazarus Dokora has said that managers of schools must be willing to accept the new mode of payment.

The Finance minister of Zimbabwe, Patrick Chinamasa has already told the country’s parliament this month that banks are to be asked to accept livestock as collateral for loans from small scale businesses.

The latest transaction to benefit from livestock is the payment of fees which has received mixed reactions.

In an interview with the state-owned newspaper Sunday Mail, the education ministry’s permanent secretary Sylvia Utete-Masango said “Parents of the concerned pupils can pay their fees using livestock.”

The Southern African country led by 93 year old President, Robert Mugabe is struggling with an economic crisis which has made it difficult for citizens to have access to cash.

Many banks have had customers queuing to withdraw their cash and these new alternatives for payments are considered the best solution by the Zimbabwean government.

There have been many reactions to this news of paying schools fees with livestock on social media.

The 28-year-old ex-air hostess has no plans to curb her tanning addiction and admits she is still using the 50-tube sunbed that is installed in her home

A GERMAN glamour model has unveiled her extreme mahogany skin tone after having just three tanning injections – and says she wants to look “African dark”.

The 28-year-old ex-air hostess now has no plans to curb her tanning addiction and admits she is still using the 50-tube sunbed that is installed in her home so she can look darker.

Martina, who stunned viewers with her appearance on This Morning today, said: “Nine weeks ago, I had just three tanning injections.

“I was not expecting to go so dark but it worked so well. I love it and I really want to push it to the extreme.

“Now I just want to get darker and darker and see what the limits are. I love the contrast of my bright blonde hair and my dark, crispy brown skin.”

Martina loves seeing the reaction of people in the street to her bold look.

“I can see their big eyes when I walk past and their shocked faces, thinking ‘how is this possible?’” she said.

“At first, my fans were irritated, saying ‘why did you do this?!” but that is because they have never seen a white girl change her skin to African dark before.

“But now, they have got used to it, they are excited like me. They say, ‘oh, I like your style! Go darker! Go darker!’”

Martina, whose unique breast implants can be ‘pumped up’ by injecting saline, said she doesn’t think black people would be offended by her look.

“Yes, I have the skin of an African girl. But I am not pretending to be a black girl,” she said.

“I’m going to create a unique and exotic Barbie with dark tan, bright blonde hair and exaggerated curves. I like this look.”

Martina said she’s not trying to change her race and describes the extreme tan as just a part of her quest to become the “ultimate real-life Barbie bimbo”.

Friends of Martina have been surprised by her decision and she admits even the doctor that administered the injections – whom she will not name – did not recognise her.

“In the seventh week after the injections, I went back to see my doctor. I said ‘hello’ and he looked at me like, huh, who is this in my waiting room? It was very funny,” she said.

“He said: ‘I have never seen a girl turn so African dark before. Are you sure that you want this?’ I told him ‘Yes!’

“I love my skin like this. I love the extreme look.”

Martina, who can pump up her breasts further with saline, says the doctor who administered the tanning jabs didn’t recognise her when she returned to the clinic

To date, Martina has spent more than £50,000 on cosmetic surgeries and procedures.

7 tips to being a memorable wedding MC

Being asked to serve as Master of Ceremonies for a friend or relative’s wedding is a huge honor. But there’s a lot of pressure that comes with the job too. Contrary to popular belief, you’re not up there to be the center of attention or to be the official wedding comedian. You’re the host of the event and it’s your job to keep the proceedings on time and to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. I had the honor of serving as the MC at my sister’s wedding last weekend. It was the fourth time I’ve pulled MC duty over the past 20 years and I’ve learned some valuable lessons about this important role each time. If you’ve been tapped to serve as MC at an upcoming wedding, here are a few tips I hope you find helpful. This is by no means a definitive guide – just one guy’s lived experience about what works and what doesn’t:

1. Have a Plan

This isn’t ‘Open Mic Night’. Save the ad-libs for your improv class. Before the big day, you should have a very good idea of the order and flow of the evening, the proper pronunciation of important names and, to a very large extent, everything you’re going to say that night. That doesn’t mean you need to be 100% scripted. There will be those little spontaneous moments where you can inject an appropriate comment or a touch of humor or emotion. After all, that’s why the bride and groom selected you to be their MC – because you’re good in front of a crowd and can likely tell a good story. But a wedding is an emotionally-charged and time sensitive event and you need to have a plan.

If you can, sit down with the bride and groom a few days or weeks before the wedding and ask about their wishes and preferences. They’re likely to be distracted with a million other details, so keep your questions focused:

  • Who will be saying the prayer before the meal (if at all)?
  • Who will be speaking and is there a preferred order of speakers?
  • What’s the ‘tone’ they’d like to achieve for the reception?
  • What time do they want to have their first dance (you need to work backward from this time to ensure everyone sticks to the schedule)?
  • Are there any taboo subjects that you and the other speakers should avoid?

2. Go Easy on the Alcohol

Yes, it’s a party. Yes, it may be an open bar. But you have a job to do. The last thing you need is to botch your hosting duties because you had one too many. Keep the drinking to a minimum (like none) until your main duties are completed (when the first dances begin). Remember, Facebook is forever. And so is the wrath of an angry bride.

3. Meet the Vendors

Prior to the beginning of the reception, make a point of introducing yourself to key vendors, including the wedding planner, site manager, DJ, band, photographer, videographer, etc. A reception entails a number of interconnected and moving parts and everyone needs to know what’s coming next. That’s your job. A quick hand signal to the photographer or videographer that another speech is about to begin will help ensure they don’t miss a special moment. A heads-up to the DJ or band that the first dance will be starting in 10 minutes can help ensure the bass player isn’t in the bathroom when the bride and groom are standing in the middle of the dance floor. Confirming with the kitchen that the meal is ready to be served can prevent a long pause between the prayer before dinner and the serving of the first course. This is all on you. So make those connections in advance and stay in communication with these folks throughout the proceedings.

4. Test the Mic

Test out the mic and sound system before the wedding party is lined up to march in. For one wedding about a decade ago, I leaned toward the mic to introduce the wedding party and there was silence. It took 10 minutes for the technicians to get it working. Those were valuable minutes that were wasted and that was my fault for not checking in advance. Last week, I made a point of checking the mic in advance and discovered that there wasn’t one. This was about 20 minutes before the reception was set to begin. The videographer (who was helping me at that point) asked the manager for a mic, she located one, we plugged it into the band’s sound system and tested it out. Ready to rock. Mini-crisis averted.

5. Open Strong and Get Out of the Way

Your job is not to bring up rambling anecdotes throughout the evening and to tell a story or a joke before and after each speaker. To a large extent, your job is to keep things moving as quickly as possible. No one likes long wedding speeches. Be sure to have a strong opening. Be upbeat. Welcome everyone and thank them for attending. Recognize the out of town guests, maybe tell a quick story or two about the bride and/or groom and then get out of the way. Keep your introductions and segues quick and concise. Keep the evening rolling along. Otherwise, the dancing won’t begin until 11:00 p.m.

6. Approach Humor with Caution

Again, this isn’t about you and how funny you are. Funny moments at a wedding can be great but, often, those are introduced by the various speakers (parents, friends, siblings, etc.). A joke told in poor taste can create an awkward moment and bring the good times to a screeching halt. Approach humor carefully. Test out potential jokes on the bride or groom or another trusted friend in advance.

7. Think of Your Audience

The best way to ensure you’ll be remembered as a great MC is to focus on the audience. Are there a lot of out-of-town guests? If so, give them a special welcome or a few interesting facts about the city. Do the demographics of the audience give you any opportunities for a special moment? At the wedding I emceed last week, there was a sizable Slovak contingent. The day before the wedding, I asked someone to teach me how to say a few lines (welcoming everyone to the city and thanking them for helping us celebrate the wedding ) in their language. I had him speak it into a voice recorder on my iPad and I practiced it a lot. That one line, which I delivered in the first two minutes of my introduction, got a huge reaction from the crowd – the biggest of the night – and it got the evening off to a great start. Their reaction wasn’t because of my impeccable delivery or pronunciation (actually, I’m pretty sure I mangled the pronunciation). It was because I was thinking about the audience and made the extra effort to connect.

As the MC, your role is so important. Your performance can help make the evening run efficiently and it can help make the reception a special and memorable event for everyone in attendance, especially the bride and groom.
