Y'ede Awhrehuo - We Are Mourning

The death of the President Mills of Ghana on July 24th 2012 gave birth to a level of creativity that I am yet to see a good enough competition for. 

That same day was when the Musicians Union of Ghana was launching their website at the African Regent Hotel. Mid way into the launch, the news broke of the President's death. As part of his closing remarks, the emcee, Kwame Sayiamah announced that the President had passed.

Sakyiwaa Mensah on YFM

On the evening of Sunday July 21st 2013, I had an interview on the MPwr(Empower) Show on YFM in Accra. The program is hosted by Emmanuel Gamor and Amma Aboagye. Let me just add that those two have a beautiful chemistry and their song choices, aided by their DJ is very much on point.

Of Business, Marriage and Co-Habitating

Once I was having lunch with a friend. He did not seem to understand why marriage was so important. He felt people could just easily co-habitate and the whole hustle of weddings and the marriage ceremonies could be forgotten. I tried to tell him that marriage offers some security and in the event of a divorce, partners could be entitled to parts of properties acquired by both. I mentioned that co-habitating can make people just decide to pack and leave anytime without feeling the need to at least try to make the union work.

Hope with HIV

There is a seminar on the media and HIV reportage currently ongoing at Hotel Ivotel Plateau, Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire for which I am partaking. It is from July 8th to July 11th 2013.
