This year marks exactly a decade since celebrated actress Joselyn Dumas started her acting career, and she says it has been a remarkable journey for her so far.
The beautiful TV personality is currently not just a household name in the Ghanaian entertainment industry but also one of the influential figures on the acting scene.
She first made her debut on Television as the host of Charter House’s Rhythmz, an entertainment show, which saw her interview many celebrities. Then she went on to “The One Show” on the defunct TV Network, ViaSat 1.
She subsequently got a cameo appearance in Shirley Frimpong Manso’s, Perfect Picture in 2009 and she has since not looked back.
She told NEWS-ONE that she knew nothing about acting when she started 10 years ago. She however, didn’t give up; she worked extra to come this far with her acting career.
“Ten years ago was my first ever appearance in any movie production in Ghana and I didn’t even know anything about acting and things like that… A lot of things happened to me in the last 10 years, both highs and lows… but that is life,” she said.
She is currently no doubt enjoying her career as she says “I have been doing a lot. I have been working with Stanchart on their online mobile banking. I am also working with Samsung; we are promoting their new Samsung 10 plus and also working with Ghana Gas. I am basically doing a little more corporate stuff and then as and when a nice script comes my way, I do it.”
Joselyn is also one of the casts who have returned for Sparrow Pictures’ “Perfect Picture – 10 Years Later” film to be released in December 2019.
The Richest Footballer in the World, Not Messi not Ronaldo.
We are very much too familiar with the World’s best players that football history would ever come across. And we most times would think they most obviously would be the richest. The shocking truth is that they both are not. Even when Messi and Ronaldo’s wealth are combined together, they aren’t up to this young man.
Who is this young man? Faiq Bolkiah. The 20-year-old Leicester academy midfielder is the most valued player in the world, even though he has yet to make a senior appearance for Leicester city. Otherwise known as the foxes.
The young reserve player is the nephew of the sultan of Brunei with an estimated networth of €15 billion nothing compared to Messi and Ronaldo.

ON THE VIRG- Lionel Messi beat Van Dijk to Ballon d’Or by just SEVEN points as full results are revealed
LIONEL MESSI beat Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk to the Ballon d’Or by just seven points to win a record sixth gong.
The Portuguese was never in the running to take the top gong and instead it was Van Dijk who came agonisingly close to becoming the first Liverpool ace to win it since Michael Owen in 2001.
In the end it came down to just a couple of votes from the 176 international journalists who participated.
Each journalist has to pick their top three with a point system of five for their best, three for second and one for third.
Liverpool players dominated the top 10 with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Alisson third, fourth and seventh respectively.
Kylian Mbappe had 89 points while Riyad Mahrez rounded off the top 10 with 33.
Messi’s total was less than last year’s winner Luka Modric who picked up 753 points.
Van Dijk, who many thought deserved the trophy after winning the Champions League, remained gracious after being pipped to the award.
He said: “You need to respect greatness. It was an amazing year — but there’s a couple of players who are a bit unnatural.
“I was close but there was someone a bit better.
“I never thought I’d be up for a Ballon d’Or until I was actually nominated.
“It shows a lot about how my career’s been. I came late but never gave up on my dreams.
“I had to work hard every step of the way so to be here makes me so proud.”
Messi has previously won the award in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.
The Barcelona star added: “Ten years ago I received my first Ballon d’Or, guided by my three brothers.
“And today I receive my sixth, guided by my wife and children.
“As my wife explained, you must never stop dreaming but always work to improve and continue to enjoy. I am very lucky, I am blessed.”
Ronaldo did not attend the glitzy do in Paris and instead showed up at the 2019 Gran Cala del Calcio do in Milan to pick up the Best Player in Serie A gong.
When asked if Ronaldo’s absence meant he had one fewer rival to beat to claim the crown, Van Dijk joked: “Was he a rival then?”
She wrote: “I think there are people living completely frustrated and unrealistic!
“It is well known that Ronaldo will not win tonight’s prize. Although he has won important collective titles… but this is another conversation.
“Now, dear Virgil, where you are going, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone and come a thousand times.
“You see, my dear Virgil, that Cristiano Ronaldo was a tri-champion in the country where you have been playing for years and you still haven’t got your hand on the trophy.
“Now, Virgil, win titles from those who really count and then we’ll talk.
“When you have a handful of them, the really important ones, you might be able to sit at the table with Cristiano.”
