Liberian Entertainment Awards CEO Tarkus Zonen Apologizes

Liberian Entertainment Awards celebrated its first major milestone, its 10th Anniversary, last weekend, March 10, 2018.  The expectation for a grand event from the event goers were so high, but the reality was far from the dream.  Tarkus Zonen, the CEO of the LEA, took to social media to apologize and encourage LEA loyal attendees. Check out his words below: 

In these times of uncertainties and economic crisis, we want to thank you all for your continuous support in recognizing our very own Liberians as they excel in Music, Movies, Fashion, and Services.
We’d like to, again, congratulate all of our nominees, winners, and performers and ask that you continue to highlight Liberian Excellence. Thanks to our hosts, Jimmy Dee and Lisa Togbah for such an amazing job. Also thanks to our presenters, the LEA Academy, Jersey International, sponsors, contractors, consultants and volunteers.
It’s always a challenge to perfectly blend the elements of the red carpet, performances, production and the Liberian Experience. And often, you hear about the negatives. And we apologize for all short comings and take full ownership. However, there’s a undying desire to enhance the LEA Experience and get things right.
As you may know, the most important factor in any relationship is listening. And we truly appreciate all the creative feedbacks from the weekend and they will indeed be implemented. Our goal as always, is to make the Liberian Entertainment Awards an event every Liberian can be proud of. We also invite others to join us in enhancing the LEA Experience.
We promise next year’s ceremony will bring forth the very best Liberia has to offer. See you all March 2019 for another edition of The LEA.

'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.

“The people of Helena have spoken, and I am honored to be able to serve them,” Collins said as the night drew to a close. “I intend to work with commissioners, work for the people of Helena and find what is best for this city.”Collins also sought to praise Smith for his work over the past decade and a half.
“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 …
