Allen Iverson

Could it be that it’s all over but the shouting for NBA work horse Allen Iverson? It seems that way because with no apparent interest from NBA teams, he is set to retire, according to an online report.

 

Former ESPN commentator and sportswriter Stephen A. Smith published a statement on his website Wednesday attributed to Iverson. It said Iverson plans to retire but also that “I feel strongly that I can still compete at the highest level.”

The statement also said Iverson has tremendous love for the game and the desire to play, adding there is “a whole lot left in my tank.”

“His legacy would be huge,” Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star LeBron James told the Associated Press. “He’s one of the best when you talk about guys 6-foot and under in the game of basketball. He played injured and he played hard every single night. I don’t think it should end this way, but if it does, he’s left a lot of great things behind.”

THERE IS an extra bounce in Afro-Pop sensation Becca’s gait these days, because a project she has been dreaming of for a while now to help 10,000 children sign onto the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) is about to materialize.

 

The singer, who studied Child Care at Croydon College in England after her Senior High education at Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast, says she was shattered when she heard about the death of a four-month old baby at a hospital in Accra earlier this year because the mother could not afford a small amount of money to buy some prescribed medication.

“The incident really touched my heart. It set me thinking about what I could do in my own little way to help such unfortunate children.

Several options crossed my mind, but I felt the most immediate way to demonstrate concern was to kick off a scheme that would get 10,000 children signed onto the NHIS”, Becca said.

FOLLOWING POSITIVE reports that he is in high demand in Nigeria’s Nollywood, tall, curled-haired Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has said he does not jump onto just any movie set in the country.

 

Speaking to BEATWAVES, John said he accepts and rejects scripts based on different factors.

“The fact that there so many scripts coming doesn’t mean I should do all the jobs. There were some scripts that I rejected.

You know, because I have to look at the storyline, who is directing, and some important things before I start shooting the movies. Yes I was rejecting a lot of scripts, but I was doing a lot of movies as well”, he said.

According to John, his decision was also due to time constraint. “The schedule is so tight that I can’t make time.
