Jackie Appiah is the most beautiful African woman – iChris elucidates after recent backlash

0 0
Read Time2 Minute, 40 Second

Ghana’s biggest actress, Jackie Appiah was crowned the Most Beautiful African Woman in 2020. She took the number spot on Style Rave’s list of the Most Beautiful African Women. This is why currently, Jackie Appiah is the most beautiful African woman.

I recently posted about this fact on my Facebook page, iChris, reiterating the obvious fact that Jackie Appiah is the most beautiful woman in Africa. Thus, I was just repeating the fact that she emerged atop Style Rave’s list of Top 30 most beautiful African women.

iChris’s Facebook post

Besides, aside from the list, Jackie Appiah is such a beautiful lady, one would still make a good argument saying she is the most beautiful African woman. She is black, decent, and gorgeously dazzling, naturally.

iChris’s backlash

However, many people[mostly non-Ghanaians] fiercely disputed my post with a backlash on me for my pronouncement. The said post has currently reached over 2.7 million people and had over 122 thousand likes, 2.7 thousand comments, and 401 shares.

Many people do not just want to understand my basis for making that statement. They keep arguing that she is not the most beautiful African woman; she can only be regarded as one of the most beautiful African women and so on. Others even argued that Jackie Appiah was the Most Beautiful African woman in 2020 but not in 2021.

This comes as no surprise to me because I know other Africans wish their women rather had the coveted title. Especially Nigerians and South Africans, many Africans flooded the comments section of my post with arguments suggesting that their respective countries had better candidates for the title.

His explanation

Nonetheless, calling a spade a spade, Jackie Appiah is the Most Beautiful African Woman based on the ranking. That is why I remain unflinching in my stand on the issue despite the heavy backlash.

Moreover, I know she still maintains the title in 2021 even though she was crowned in 2020. This is because nobody has succeeded her yet, that is even if anybody would succeed her this year.

Shatta Wale broke the law, stop making him look like a hero – Arnold rebuts A Plus

Read Time1 Minute, 30 Second

I am sure many of you could not just wait to hear Arnold Asamoah Baidoo’s comment on his ‘50 pesewas’ friend, Shatta Wale’s recent ordeal. Well, yes, a friend in need is a friend indeed, so he has finally shared his opinion on the issue.

For starters, Arnold honestly admitted that he feels sorry for Shatta Wale’s current situation because prison is no place to wish for even your worst enemy.

“I sympathize with Shatta Wale… I wish him well… I think Shatta’s current awful experience is not something anybody should be joyous over…”

However, rebutting A Plus’s follow-up reaction to his earlier submission, Arnold then stated that Shatta Wale broke the law, so we should desist from trying to make him look like a hero. According to him, even if Shatta Wale had good intentions, he did not have to go in contravention with the law in order to do so.

Besides, Shatta Wale is one of Ghana’s biggest Musicians, so breaking the law cannot be his only way to gain attention for the so-called purpose he sought to achieve. Arnold said these in interjection to A Plus’s attempt to say Shatta Wale’s gunshot hoax deserves applause.

Ghanaians should applaud Shatta Wale for his gunshot hoax – A Plus elucidates

Read Time1 Minute, 36 Second

Outspoken Ghanaian entertainment guru, A Plus shares his opinion on Shatta Wale’s recent gunshot hoax that landed him in prison. He seems to disagree with the school of thought that thinks Shatta’s gunshot stunt was absolutely wrong or needless.

Contrary to that, Kwame A Plus thinks that all Ghanaians need to applaud Shatta Wale for pulling such a stunt. Thus, it has proven to be beneficial to everyone.

According to him, just as every dark cloud has a silver lining; Shatta Wale’s gunshot hoax has made a commendable history. The history made is that for the very first time in Ghana, a pastor has been arrested over a prophecy.

Prior to this, such issues were regarded as spiritual affairs, therefore had no breathing space in our judicial system. Thus, until now such issues never even made it to the police stations talk less of the courts.

Why Shatta Wale should be applauded

However, presently, the pastor was even the first to be arrested before Shatta Wale was later apprehended. Therefore, we should look at the issue from an all-new angle where, Shatta Wale’s stunt has spurred a positive change, for the good of the whole nation.

Meanwhile, A Plus was reacting to Arnold Asamoah Baidoo’s submission on UTV’s United Showbiz last Saturday, in which he stated that Shatta Wale should learn from this awful experience.

“We indicated that we have Shatta Wale and two others in our custody,” “Earlier we also took into our custody, the pastor. Currently, there are four of them going through the Police investigation process. At the end of the day.” DSP Obeng disclosed.
