Meet Jimmy Dee - Liberian Entertainment Awards 2018 Host 

Jimmy Dee is the host of Liberian Entertainment Awards 2018.  He will be along side his co-host Lisa Togba on March 10, 2018, in Atlanta, Georgia.  

Jimmy grew up in America but lived in a Liberian home , everything was so Liberian for him.  His grandma only spoke bassa, which she felt comfortable communicating with him only and that's how he learned to speak bassa fluently. As a kid he was very active and hard headed . He used to love imitating ppl in church and just being a clown whenever he could in school . He participated in school plays and concerts so by high school he was known as the show boy in the family! 


While in high school, hevstarted getting lead roles in major theater productions and acted in few independent films. By the time he started college , his first MC gig was when his aunt Teta Dousuah decided he should be the host for her wedding. This was a bit different from his usual acting and singing , he had to make ppl laugh , excited , and keep them interested in the event they were attending. Little did hevknow , he was  trained long time ago for that job and so he nailed it and ever since the weddings and showers and you name it , kept on coming . 


“The LEA stage has always been a dream for me. I used to hear about how awesome this event was and how so many Liberians would travel from different states and countries to attend. While I kept my dream in my head , friends were already encouraging me to host the LEA . It started to get annoying hearing everyone say "Jimmy you need to host the LEA " over and over ! Finally, I decided to attend LEA in 2016. I told myself, if I went I had to let other ppl witness my first experience that hear ! I took my selfie stick and interviewed few celebrities on the carpet, and so many ppl watched it and enjoyed it . More so , Fortunately for me , three weeks before the event I was ask to host the LEA welcome party / fashion show that year. From what I did I could see Tarkus smiling in the back and it was scary because you don't get to see Tarkus smiling , he's a serious businessman so that day I felt it was a tryout for me. After that night, the rest is History , I used to wonder why they waited so long to let me Host , but now I know , it's Gods time and it is the time to celebrate 10years of Liberian excellence and creativity, Therefore, I'm beyond honored and overwhelmingly joyful for the opportunity to host the 2018 LIberian Entertainment Awards , in Atlanta Georgia.” Jimmy Dee

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
