BBA STARGAME UPDATE:"We regret fighting each other"-Zambian Sisters

Contrary to the Malawians, the Zambian sisters regret a few things they did.

Talia and Tamara had the most intense fights in Downville and it transpired that they had deep seated issues. As they nestled in Biggie's chambers for the last time in the afternoon, the sisters confessed that they could have handled their differences better.

"If we had sorted things out from home it would have been different," Tamara said.

The girls agreed that dealing with their issues as well as accepting that they were individuals was a big challenge in the House.

The good thing though is that they were able to face their challenges head on and will come of the House better people.

Do you think both or one of the Zambian sisters will make it to Upville?

BBA STARGAME UPDATE:"I Don't Want Her Prize Money"-Tamara

"If she wins this money, she can have it. I don't want a cent of it," Tamara declared to Big Brother.

Emotions ran high when Talia and Tamara were given a chance to vent in the Diary Room and the latest is that Tamara wishes her sister well in the game.

Though they are in the game together, Tamara sarcastically said she could see that all that mattered to her sister was going to Upville and she wished her well.

"She must go to Upville and win this money. I don't care. I'm a hustler, I'll hustle," Tamara insisted. Meanwhile, Talia told Biggie that she was tired of how her sister bullied her and always expected her to act in a certain way. Both sisters agreed though that they knew that they would have a blow out in the House. "I express myself and my individuality in here and she doesn't like that," Talia said.

Big Brother suggested that the girls find it in themselves to iron out their issues and focus on the ultimate prize. Biggie also offered the sisters professional help but Tamara claimed to be good and instead suggested that her sister needed it more. "I can deal with a lot of pressure. Let her offload," she said.

However Big Brother advised Tamara to see the big picture as the big sister.

Do you think the sisters are in a position to resolve their issues in the House?

Why Girls Don’t Wear Panties

efya 210x300 Why Girls Don’t Wear Panties

Sexy songstress Efya has waded into the controversy of the unnamed Ghanaian female musician who was captured by News-One cameras without any underwear during a public performance.

The artiste’s unfortunate choice of wardrobeclothes without underwear – left her naked sex organ exposed, but mostly to the sharpest of eyes, including News-One cameras. According to Efya, it would be hypocritical to say she was not aware that some girls now found it trendy to get all dolled up without wearing panties. News-One has gathered that the girls call that type of dressing ‘ready to fight’. Efya said it would be difficult to explain why her fellow ladies chose not to wear panties when they dress up because she had never tried that in her entire life. “Sometimes girls don’t wear panties but I haven’t done it before though it is not a big deal.

Many girls do it,” Efya added. Putting it on record that she had never dressed up without wearing panties suggests that Efya could not be the unnamed female musician who went on stage and captured exposing her naked vag**na. When News One asked what her opinion on the issue was Efya noted: “Maybe there was a situation but I don’t think it was intentional।

aaaaaaaaaaaaaa 300x223 Why Girls Don’t Wear Panties

I have not tried it before and I will not do so in the future because now everybody will be looking out for which artiste is wearing panties and who is not because it has happened to someone.

Various reasons have been given as to why several Ghanaians girls in recent times dress without wearing panties and the most common of reason seems to be that panties make them feel uncomfortable, depending on the type of clothing they wear. The section of Ghanaian girls who dress up ‘underwearless’ mostly do so when they put on jeans trousers or any other light trousers. The explanation is that the outline of the panties through the trousers is distasteful.

ghana nigeria 300x210 GHANA vs NAIJA........NO HOME TURF ADVANTAGE FOR GHANA

Me self don dey tire for this whole Naija/Ghana problem that has been going on for a while now…First it was “Ghana must go” vs “Naija must leave cos they contaminating our country”…next one come be “Nollywood” vs “Ghollywood”, and now prostitution tournament.

Ghanaian girls who offer sex for money at Adum, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti region, have expressed anger over some Nigerians importing younger and prettier girls who are gradually taking over the sex business.
Shoo…. anyways i’m happy Ghana is finally accepting the fact that we look way better than them….. thank u thank u Charleys for the acknowledgment icon smile GHANA vs NAIJA........NO HOME TURF ADVANTAGE FOR GHANA But at the same time they shouldnt be surprised, cos if Naija peeps put their mind on smth, it’s def a wrap!!!!

If not for the intervention of the assembly member for the area, Albert Osei-Banahene, the enraged sex workers would have hit the streets in their nakedness and marched from one office building to another, just to get the authorities to come to their aide.
shey una dey see that naked thing wey i don dey talk about? Its like most African women want to be naked these days…….Anyways i think i might support u guys on this move shaa…..yess “do it..do it..commot am”..Ohh yeeaaaaaaaaahhhhhh icon smile GHANA vs NAIJA........NO HOME TURF ADVANTAGE FOR GHANA

“We would start attacking any underage ashawo from Nigeria because they are spoiling the market,” one of them noted. Interestingly, though both groups are prostituting, the Ghanaian girls say they are commercial sex workers while the Nigerians are ‘ashawos.’
Ah ah …come on nah…which levels? make una no touch my Naija girls for thia ohh, if una no want make kill one of my Ghanaian friends for hia (kruma & co.)

OH Naija ehh..we no dey ever carry last for any illegal stuff…Although this news is just mad hillarious, this isnt smth to boast about tho….First it was Italy, then Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Ivory Coast..and now Ghana……May God save us

And finally let me give you guys a take home assignment. What is the difference between a “commercial sex worker” and an “ashawo”?
