Q&A with Margaret Cephas The Quiet Star


It seems like a large door was opened for Margret Mamuchi Cephas, commonly known as Maggie, after her show-stopping performance during MTN Project Fame West Africa in 2013. Though the shy but talented teenager did not win, she took 2nd place, leaving some very robust singers behind. What was expected afterwards was to see her release track after track like most artists would (and should) on the momentum of such achievement. Many also searched their radio dials to hear the unique star brag over her next endeavor; but neither was done.

LNMA 2017: Six Things You May Have Missed from the Ceremony

The inaugural edition of the Liberia National Movie Awards has ended with lots of surprises and talking points. From ‘Deadly Twin’ winning the Best Film category to news of E. Owusu Dahnsaw losing to Melvin G. Melvin, who was considered an underdog for the Best Actor category, shock was also the word in the mouths of many people at the Monrovia City Hall.
Like Melvin, Linda Bassie triumphed in the Best Female Comedian category by defeating film heavyweight Mamie Kamara (Dugobormor Ma). Although she was not present to pick up her award, the win was indeed a shocker.

Catchy colloquia singer Eric Geso has ditched his manager Sonie Grant, according to multiples sources.

Speaking to LIB Life, sources said for the past four and half weeks, the artist has neither communicated with nor responded to Sonie, “which clear shows that he no longer feels comfortable working with her.”

To make matters worse, Eric released a single more than a week ago without her knowledge, “which has never be done before since she signed him,” our sources added.
