Tags: Celebrity Van Vicker Ghana Actors Nigeria
The African Voice Newspaper UK has now released nominees for the 17th African Film Awards 2012 better known as Hollywood Awards. Winners of each category will be announced at a special ceremony in Akure, Ondo State on Wednesday, October 10, 2012.

Each of the winners would have the opportunity to attend the prestigious annual awards in London.
 
Top actresses like Tonto Dikeh, Chika Ike and Omoni Oboli will slug it out in the best actress category while South Africa’s leading actor, Jafta Mamabolo (famed for his role in Otelo Burning) will have Nigeria’s Joseph Benjamin (Tango With Me) and Ghana’s Van Vicker to fight in order to win in the best African actor category.
 
The award has helped to make Nollywood popular and opened an array of opportunities for past recipients. Commenting on this year’s edition, Prince Mike Abiola, publisher of African Voice Newspaper UK and Chairman of the awards committee said “the awards ceremony will attract British African stars from film and television, British producers seeking collaboration with Nollywood practitioners and high net worth British Africans seeking to invest in Africa’s leading film industry.
 
“Akure in Ondo State has been chosen to announce the finalists from Nollywood this year to promote peaceful electioneering in the forth coming Governorship elections in the state. It is hoped that the popularity of Nollywood and wide acceptance of the award brand will drive international media attention to the variety of tourist attractions in the state such as the historic Idanre Hills.”
 
A distinguished and independent panel of film critics, respected for their expertise in the film industry, will decide the eventual winners of each award category.
 
The awards, celebrating excellence in African Film and tourism, will also be an opportunity to highlight the tourism development plans of African states, as the event coincides with the World Tourism Market, the leading global event for the tourism industry.

Amina Starring Omotola, Van Vicker And Major Hollywood Stars Tags: Omotola Jalada-Ekeinde Van Vicker Movie News 2012 Trailers Nollywood Movie Reviews
Have You Seen The Trailer For "Amina"? Starring Omotola And Major Hollywood Stars. AMINA is a deeply emotional story of loss, love and redemption about a fragile young woman, (Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde) whose life turns into disarray after an unplanned pregnancy leaves her totally devastated and bewildered.

Unsure and vulnerable, she fights single-handedly to raise an unwanted child, but stumbles and falls at every turn into deeper emotional turmoil that eventually leads her lonely, lost and 'without her mind' in the care of a secure pyschiactric institution..

 
Trapped in a system that is struggling to cope, even her loving boyfriend (Van Vicker) and childhood best friend (Alison Caroll... "The Kids", "Doghouse", "Lara Croft model") seem powerless to help her.What are the dark forces that surround Amina, is she a victim of circumstances or one of life's unfortunate people? Is she actually crazy at all?
 
 
Only one man, her psychiatrist (Wil Johnson.. "Adulthood", "In a Better World"), cares enough to find out, but he must first convince his boss (Vincent Regan.. "Clash of the Titans", "300", "Troy") that his unorthodox approach will work. The only problem is he must overcome his own demons before he can help Amina confront her tormented past and guide her to finally face her future with hope.

Van Vicker Attempts His Luck In Music Career
Category: Gossip
Tags: Van Vicker Music News Celebrity News African Male Celebrity Photos Showbiz Ghana News Movie Stars African Male Actor Entertainment News
Actor cum producer Van Vicker will in no time prove to Ghanaian and African musicians that he is capable of singing as he is currently working towards releasing a 12-track album. Even though Van had reportedly denied reports that he was recording with another Ghanaian artiste Stay Jay of ‘Shashiwowo’ fame.
 
According to the source, he was recording with Lynx Entertainment and had so far recorded a number of songs. “The album will be a collection of different genres of music including Pop, Afro pop and Hip Life. He is not sure how he will call the album yet. But all will depend on the final product,” the source said.
 
The music is being recorded at a time when there are a lot of media reports about him, especially on his alleged brawl with actress Tonto Dike.
It is most likely his lyrical content will highlight some of his experiences with the media and also clarify issues on how he wants it to be.
 
Some entertainment observers said it would be suicidal if he took on the media through his songs. Meanwhile his decision to sing follows a trend in Nigeria where almost every actor wants to sing.
 
Omotola Jalade, Genevieve Nnaji, Patience Ozokwor, Jim Iyke, Nkem Owoh, Stella Damasus and a number of others have albums to their credit. In Ghana, Agya Koo, Mr. Beautiful and Mercy Asiedu are known for their singing prowess.
 
Van just wrapped up the shoot of his latest movie. He told Citi FM he would change the working title,’ Distance’.
 
He also said his eight-year-old daughter also shocked him in the movie with the way she handled a crying scene, noting she made him realize that she would become a chip of the old block. His son is however not gifted with acting so he wants him to play football.
 
What do you think? Should he really try hands on with music or concentrate solely on acting?.

Van Vicker: If I Was Here There Would Be No Majid Michel Tags: Van Vicker Movie News Celebrity News Actors Nollywood Ghallywood
Ghanaian actor, Van Vicker who has been off the Ghanaian movie scene for some years now has stated that if he was still very active in Ghana like he used to be some years back, there wouldn't be new faces like Majid Michel, John Dumelo, Frank Atus and others who are now making waves in Ghallywood. He said his absence gave current stars like Majid and others the opportunity to shine.

The Liberian born Ghanaian screen actor said, this in an interview with Peacefmonline.com, during the launch of the second edition of the Ghana Movie Awards at Golden Tulip in Accra last Wednesday August 3, 2011. ?If I had been in the picture all the time, probably there would been no Majid, there would have been no John because I would be working consistently. So it is a good thing that I went into other areas.
 
That notwithstanding, Van said he believes he is still a tough competition to any actor on the scene now because he still has his elements and will even do better now because of the experience he has gotten from traveling to different countries. "I think I still have my strength, strength that probably certain artistes in the industry don't have", Van told Peacefmonline.com, when he was asked if he thinks he can still fit into the competition in Ghana now.
 
Van who has largely been accused of abandoning the Ghanaian movie industry that made him, to live in Nigeria debunked that notion saying there is nothing wrong with shooting more Nigerian movies than Ghanaian movies and that does not make him a Nigerian.
 
"I really want to debunk all those stories that said I live in Nigeria. That is outrageous because I live in Ghana and my family is right here. I don't think there is anything wrong if I am in Nollywood movies or Ghallywood movies, or Hollywood movies what difference does it make".
 
He admitted that he has not been in Ghana for some time now and has not featured in any Ghanaian movie for a while now but explained that he didn?t spend all his time in Nigeria alone. Van disclosed that he spent few months in Nigeria, and traveled to the US and other countries to work and raise money for his foundation. "So let's not get it twisted I am not always in Nigeria".
 
He told media men that he returned from the US on Saturday July 30, 2011 after staying there for over a month. Speaking on the issue of Ghanaian actors being asked to pay money before they are allowed to shoot there, he said it is true some industry players in Nigeria asked Ghanaian actors in Nigeria to pay some amount of money before they are allowed to act in a movie.
 
He said he has been approached personally a few times to pay some money and revealed that at some point he had no choice than to pay because they see him as a foreigner. On the issue of banning actors and actresses in Ghana, Van said he sees nothing wrong with it.
 
"I have nothing against any association banning its members or asking its members not to work with a particular person for misconduct but the most important thing is how strong or how true was that thing that the individual was being accused off that merits them to be banned or how bad was it. "That is where the question is but I am not against anyone being banned if they go against the code of conduct.
 
He rather thinks that we should be more careful because according to him Nigerians made such mistakes in the past and banned several movie stars and that affected their industry, so we shouldn't repeat their mistakes but rather learn from it and move forward.
 
He also denied allegations that he swore never to work with Abdul Sallam Mumuni CEO of Venus Film Productions who gave him his first major role ever in a movie titled 'Devine Love' because there was misunderstanding between the two of them.
 
Van said he has never said anywhere that he has stopped working with Sallam and revealed that he has had a couple of meetings with Sallam to shoot with him but it seems Sallam always calls him at the wrong time because on every occasion he is called to come on set, he has to travel outside the country, aside other few times that they agreed on a particular date to shoot and Sallam disappeared.
 
Van Vicker was born to a Liberian-Ghanaian mother and a Dutch father. His father died when he was six years old. He considers himself a global citizen as he was raised all over the world by his mother. Van started out in the entertainment world in radio on Vibe FM and as a Television personality for Metropolitan Television (Metro TV) as a Presenter for Smarsh TV and later' Hitz Video' on TV3.
 
In 2003, Vicker appeared in the Ghanaian television series, Suncity, which depicted university life. Vicker was featured in his first film 'Divine Love' in 2004 as a supporting character alongside Jackie Appiah and Majid Michel.
