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.”
Hajia4Real Launches Acting Career With ‘Fix Us’ Movie
Several years after making controversial headlines over her activities on social circles, Ghanaian socialite, ‘Hajia4Real’ born Mona Faiz Montrage, is gradually turning the tides for big career gains.
The young lady is now making career moves in acting as she has already landed her first acting job.
She is playing a saucy role in the upcoming movie, Fix Us by YN Productions.
She is starring alongside top African actors Yvonne Nelson, Yvonne Okoro, Prince David Osei, Michelle Attoh, Mofe Duncan, Tobi Bakre, Jessica Williams, Belinda Dzattah and Kweku Elliot in the movie, which is set to premiere on December 6, at the Silverbird Cinema at Accra Mall.
The movie is about three young ladies who take on a journey of faith and fate.
When Naadie (Yvonne Nelson), Chioma (Yvonne Okoro) and Jaya (Alexandra Amon) run into each other at an audition, they are bound by their common dream to be movie stars and form a friendship that can hardly be broken.
But when their dreams are eventually actualized, they soon realise that they want even something more from life.
Something more that money cannot buy; something more that fame cannot give; something more that they must find for themselves.
The movie to some extent highlights what goes on behind the scenes in the lives of some actors.
NEWS-ONE has spotted some of Hajia4real’s scenes with Prince David Osei, and she has not only put up a great performance but also she has proven that she can be a great actress if she pursues a full time acting career.
“You can’t miss this movie premiere for anything on 6th December, you know why? Take a wild guess,” Hajia announced the movie when she teased her followers on Instagram and other social media platforms on Friday.
Kofi Kinaata’s ‘Things Fall Apart’ Making Waves
The much anticipated single from one of Ghana’s performing artistes, Martin King Arthur aka Kofi Kinaata, has been released and currently making waves in the music scene.
The single titled “Thing Fall Apart”, produced by Two Bars, is a mid-tempo danceable highlife song.
Kofi Kinaata said he was happy that his latest single which was released a few days ago had caught the attention of a large number of music lovers.
A section of the radio DJs and presenters who have had the opportunity to listen to the song have rated the song among the best to be produced in the country.
Kofi Kinaata in an interview with Doreen Avio on Hitz FM stated that his song was supposed to help change the mindset of Ghanaians on how to make the country a better place.
He stressed that as a concerned citizen of this nation, it is his responsibility to use his craft to help move the nation forward.
“I did not talk about one particular group. The song is for all and everyone can relate to the song. It’s about our everyday life. Just like our president said; we have to be citizens, not spectators,” he said.
Arguably, one of the best song writers in Ghana, Kinaata keeps churning out some remarkable lyrics making him stand out in the music industry.
A product of the 2009 edition of Melody FM’s Kasahari Battle, Kofi Kinaata is noted for his lyrical dexterity in terms of unique rhyme schemes and humorous Fante rap style, with a touch of traditional African proverbs in his local language, to entertain and educate his fans.
He released his first hit single titled ‘Made in Taadi’ in December 2015, followed by another hit single, ‘Confession’ in early 2016, which was among the “Top 10” songs in 2016.
Kofi Kinaata won the Song Writer of the Year and Best New Artiste of the Year awards at the 2016 edition of the Ghana Music awards.
The talented artiste, who is credited with a number of hit danceable songs, has done major collaborations with artistes such as Sarkodie, Jayso, Castro, Becca among others.
