As I always say, respect is earned!

Who is a celebrity? We all have our views on who we call a celeb. The pop culture is growing in Ghana and every day we see someone in the media vying for celebrity status.

These days, it’s very easy to become a celebrity, just have some sort of look, physically, engage in immoral acts or appear on TV once or twice and you can earn the title. It’s not that hard, hence people are doing all sorts of things just to be famous in their bid to live a fast life.

As a celebrity, it’s either you are a respected one or a “borla” one. First things first, let’s talk about the very respected ones. For a female to be a celeb and a respected one, she has to watch closely with her two eyes, separate business from pleasure  and make sure she keeps her personal life private. Of course, the rumors will come out but know perfectly how to deal with it.

Let’s take a look at 17 famous Ghanaian women who have earned the respect of many because they have mastered the art of fame.

1. Gifty Anti

She has been on TV for years but not a single bad name nor rumor could bring her down until she decided to quit TV to go and do her own thing. She has earned the respect of many Ghanaians and has inspired many.
