LETTER TO VGMA ( XPERIENCE CONCERT)
Am very happy that VGMA Xperience Concert also known as Nominees jams is being held at Koforidua the capital of Eastern Region to celebrate our culture, entertain the fans and stakeholders since it’s been nine years you last visited and celebrated with us from the Eastside. Nine years ago some of us did not get the chance to perform but some too did. And if today, you are here again we say a big welcome.

Even though its a “Nominees Jam” we have home grown artiste as your labelled (Landlord) who have to be billed to perform. EVERY REGION has such artiste and respect should given to them whether they are nominated or not the natives would wish to see them and therefore they should be billed to perform.. This even boost the fans and music lovers to support them more because its give them the relief of supporting a good course…

We appreciate the opportunity given to our Region but the right things should and must be done, since you’re the mother of Music Awards in Ghana and wants the betterment of the artiste..

I want some clarifications on certain few question’s…

I Humbly ask…
1. As VGMA is a big platform, with huge reverence. Is VGMA treating the said landlords well or the board is just in to “use” them in the name of we are giving you a platform?? The landlord’s also need RESPECT, as well doing artiste from the Region, who have invested in their craft and need to be treated as such..

Since they want us to perform the question is,
2.Are we performing for FREE? Because from my camp I had a call and when I asked about the budget they said “they are giving us the platform”.. A big platform therefore we should perform for free..??

If VGMA with all the sponsorship to cater for an artiste’s welfare is saying they are giving us a platform, therefore we won’t be paid, how does the “little platforms” pay us for our services since they barely have sponsorship or investors.

3 An artiste has to fuel his or her car, buy some clothings and also put money in the craft to come and perform and it’s for free after all this toil.. What does the artiste reinvest into his craft, to keep the work going to get the nomination for your scheme(s) later..

We expect the artist to do all this things without paying them and you expect them to be on that big platform you re talking about…?? HOW ?

To Conclude, Asking all this questions, just for the betterment, I am not fighting for myself, or against my colleagues but am fighting for the FUTURE and the upcoming musicians.

Because 9 years ago if you couldn’t pay the artiste and today you are not paying them, then it means 10 years to come too you won’t pay the artist from the Region and various regions!!. WHY MUST IT BE SO??

THE ARTISTES DESERVED BETTER..

Johnny Depp supports solar energy: Depp has transformed his island into a self-Sustained oasis ran on hydrogen solar cells

Published

Whether he’s buying a private island or solar hydrogen technology, Johnny Depp is living off the grid. The actor has a $3 million private island. Depp converted his 35-acre island to solar hydrogen technology, comparing it to Marlon Brando’s Tahitian paradise. The Depp Solar Power Home is a beautiful example of how solar energy can help the actors save money.

He has five Hollywood Hills homes worth US$19 million

According to Hello!, Depp owns five neighbouring homes that he decided to turn into one huge private compound in the posh Hollywood Hills, collectively covering an area of 7,430 sq ft.

The largest mansion is worth over US$19 million and boasts eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, and the interior design is reportedly classic 1920s gothic. In total, all of the houses together add up to almost 40 bedrooms, according to Squareyards.com.

In 2021, an intruder broke into Depp’s mansion and reportedly took a shower and made himself a drink inside before the police came to root him out. And that wasn’t the first time someone tried to break into houses on the estate. Just a few months prior, in late 2020, a woman had also tried to break in, but fled when she realised she’d triggered the security system.

Depp bought the main house, which is nestled in a 1.6-hectare (four-acre) eucalyptus grove, for just US$1.8 million back in 1995. There were also reports suggesting the actor planned to build a connecting underground tunnel linking all of the properties together, but that is yet to be confirmed.

Man Discovers He’s Johnny Depp’s Twin After Shaving Beard: ‘Deppelganger’

Published

A New York man bearing an uncanny resemblance to Johnny Depp has gone viral on Reddit.

Bronson Fuentes is a photographer and videographer by trade, but it’s his own picture that is attracting attention online after he posted a “Depp’s doppelgänger” selfie.

The idea that there’s a stranger who looks just like you, somewhere on the planet, is the stuff of stories. In reality, it’s thought to be extraordinarily rare. A 2015 study by scientists at the University of Adelaide estimated that there’s only a 1 in 135 chance that a single pair of exact doppelgängers exists in the entire world.

Fuentes began to draw Depp comparisons sometime “around 2010,” he told Newsweek. He even recalled the first time. “I was walking through the halls at college and some random dude stopped me and exclaimed: ‘Whoa! Has anyone ever told you that you looked like Johnny Depp?’ I was confused at first but thanked him anyway. It just kind of snowballed from there.”

Although he admitted to being flattered by the comparison, he tried “not to pay too much attention to it” and got on with his life. “I don’t try to go out of my way to look like another human,” he said. “Although, one year I dressed up as a pirate for Halloween and lots of people were almost freaked out about how much I resembled Captain Jack Sparrow.”

Fuentes said he decided to take things a step further during Depp’s high-profile court battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

“I literally was just bored one day and thought to myself, ‘Hmm… I wonder if I shaved my facial hair like him, if I would actually see it for myself.’ I never really saw it before I shaved.”

The results were “certainly a surprise,” he said. Even more surprising was the reaction when he posted the image on Reddit. The image racked up about 10,000 interactions, with one fan dubbing him a “Deppelgänger” and another calling him “Johnny Depp’s stunt double.”

One Redditor wrote: “At first glance, I thought it was Johnny.”

Another posted: “A little eyeliner and you are there bro. This will simplify Halloween for the foreseeable future.”

This being the internet, there were plenty of Redditors ready to offer jokey takes. “He looks like the Johnny Depp from Wish,” quipped one. Another suggested that Fuentes “looks like Johnny’s brother Ronnie” and a third said he was more like “Johnny Derp.”

Multiple commenters said he looks more like Scream actor Skeet Ulrich.

Despite the online doubters, Fuentes said that in real life, he’s had plenty of instances of mistaken identity since he trimmed his facial hair.

“I went to my local liquor store with it shaved and my guy who always takes care of me had to do a triple take when looking at me at first, which was hilarious,” he said. “The drive-thru getting coffee was funny too. The guy giving me my drink freaked out at first thinking he was giving coffee to Johnny Depp.”

Although the jury was, quite literally, out on Depp at the time of writing, Fuentes sees the similarity as more of a blessing than a curse. “I’ll take what I can get in the looks department as I’m not a vain man,” he said. “I wish Johnny the best of luck in his trial.”

In any case, his focus remains fixed on his photo and video production company, Gjallarhorn Productions, as well as his girlfriend and two cats with whom he lives in Upstate New York. “I’m huge into nature and animals and really aspire to shoot for National Geographic someday,” he said. “I like to think I was set here on this earth to spread positivity.

“There’s lots of hate and horrible things going on in this world. It’s very easy to lose sight of all the beautiful things around us and I just want to showcase that to as many people as possible. If I can make someone smile at least once a day, I can sleep well at night.”

He may not have planned it like this, but this one picture has already made a few people smile.
