Celebrities theworld over are the source of great admiration and sometimes, even worship. People start off by liking a celebrity's music, movies or books and then there is a whole affection for the personality of the celebrity.
But celebrities also divide opinion. And those who tend to disagree with them find them reprehensible and even try hard to avoid them.
Ghanaian celebrities are no different. YEN.com,gh compiles the list of five who are currently having a love and hate affair with the public on a large scale.
1. Shatta Wale
If you have lived in Ghana for the last five years, you may realise that it is more difficult not knowing who Shatta Wale is.
A self-described "man from the ghetto", the East Legon-residing musician is as controversial as he is talented.
He does not seem like he would apologise for the things he does and that is perhaps why he is top of this list.
2. Moesha Boduong
In the era of social media creating a whole breed of people who come to prominence based on how attractive they are thought to be, Boduong is a perfect example of the times.
Moesha, as she is usually called, has grown to be a well-paid model and a brand ambassador solely on the basis of her physique. And that makes a lot of people angry.
3. Afia Schwarzenegger
Actress and media personality Afia Schwarzenegger is a mistress of controversy. Schwar likes to come off as if it is all a joke but you can tell it is not.
Most people do find her funny, however. But some of her statements have gotten her to the bad books of other famous people.
4. Rosemond Brown
Brown is appreciated because she is genuinely a young woman from humble beginnings. But some people believe that it is exactly why she is viewed as a "villager".
Whether consciously or not, Brown has been able to play the entertainment media and consistently staying in the headlines.
5. Counsellor Lutterodt
Of all the people on this list, it would seem like Counsellor George Lutterodt is the one who intentionally looks for the most outrageous things to say.
Many find him despicable but it does not seem like radio and TV stations have had enough of him.
