Ghana based Nigerian celebrity blogger; YemmeYbaba has named Sarkodie, Yvonne Nelson, Joselyn Dumas and Kofi Adjorlolo as some of the few celebrities in Ghana.
According to him, many of the people parading the showbiz industry cannot be tagged as celebrities.
He explained that despite being known faces, some people cannot claim the title because they are yet to attain celebrity status.
“The definition of who should be a celebrity is already there in terms of the fame and attention that comes with it. But what I have been talking about especially in Ghana is that a lot of those we see on TV, they wan be but they never reach (sic)” he told host, MzGee.
“There are celebrities in Ghana – that is those who have attained the fame, attention and what it takes. Sarkodie is one, Yvonne Nelson, Joselyn Dumas, and Kofi Adjorlolo. These are people whose work alone has taken them to that status”, he added.
YemmeYbaba made the statement when he joined other panelists on the ‘Gee Spot’ including actress Akosua Sexxi, Beauty Queen Mahalia Bamford and musician Ayesem as they deliberated on the topic of: WHO QUALIFIES TO BE CALLED A CELEBRITY.
The Gee Spot shows on Joy Prime, DStv 281 on Saturdays at 6.30 pm.
