The official launching ceremony which took place on Saturday morning was crowned with a mammoth street carnival in the evening. Even though several artistes, including 4×4 performed on the night, Pappy Kojo was crowned artiste of the night by the fans.

The whole place was set ‘ablaze’ when he mounted the stage to perform; and this was dominant till he performed his last song.

Lifestyle Café With Antoine Mensah on Live 91.9 FM | The Perfect Radio Show For Your Mid-Morning

Lifestyle Café With Antoine Mensah
Lifestyle Café With Antoine Mensah

Unlike some years ago, the influx of several radio stations today has made it extremely difficult to follow one particular station or program, even though one is advantaged to choose from several existing options.

In Accra alone, there exist well over 30 radio stations with countless programs; and as such, one cannot listen to all these programs, even if such an individual has all 24 hours to himself and has nothing meaningful to do with his time.

This therefore implies that one has to make an informed choice with regards to the kind of programs he’ll give ears to.

People often feel tensed up in the mornings due to the various political programs they passionately follow; and without any doubt, it requires a great content-filled mid-morning show and a super talented presenter to calm the tension of such people down.

Prophet T.B Joshua And Emmanuel TV Partners Donate To 37 Military Hospital & Police Hospital (18)

With love from above, the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), headed by Prophet T.B Joshua, and Emmanuel TV partners on Monday, September 14, 2015 donated medical equipment,  disposables, and drugs to the Police Hospital and 37 Military Hospital in Accra.

The donation which was made on behalf of the prophet was as a result of Emmanuel TV and SCOAN’s social responsibility to contribute their quota in helping humanity and the needy in the society.

Like several governmental hospitals, the 37 Military Hospital & Police Hospital are not free from challenges and as such, this kind gesture from SCOAN and Emmanuel TV Partners will go a long way to curb the challenges facing these two hospitals.

Speaking to the media, Mr. Samuel Sackey, member of SCOAN and a partner of Emmanuel TV, who led the team said “love has always been the guiding principle of the church in spite of race; so even though Prophet T.B Joshua is far away from Ghana, he entreated them to love both the healthy and the sick in all spheres of life.”

He also reiterated that the presentation formed part of the prophet’s contribution towards the wellbeing of the sick and ensuring that such ones are catered for.

Kwame Hagan Writes: Keeping Ghana Clean; Whose Responsibility Is It?

Gutter in Accra
Gutter in Accra

I’ve always maintained the position that Ghana is a very dirty country, perhaps being on top of the imaginary list of Africa’s Dirtiest Countries I’ve created; and every right thinking Ghanaian or non-Ghanaian resident will attest to this statement even though it does not put the country in a positive light.

From the numerous streets to the homes (including bedrooms) of many Ghanaians, the most visible thing one is sure to come across is heaps of garbage. It’s so ill-fated that most Ghanaians do not realize how such filth can cause real teething troubles. A clear example is the massive June 3rd flood that caused the death of several innocent and guilty Ghanaians.

Even before the deluge, several individuals had lost their precious lives through cholera, a malady that has totally lost standing in some countries. In my recent photo report, I was dumbfounded to have come across waste materials comfortably seeking shelter in open gutters. Interestingly, these gutters were either behind the homes or eateries of people who count themselves among human beings. Even though such ‘borla’ in the city is visible everywhere in the country, no measures have been put in place to do away with it.

The only question that comes to mind is; whose responsibility is it to keep Ghana clean?

Under the auspices of Ghana Tennis Federation, Yak-Dan Group of Companies, Pricelessmom Foundation, One Yogo, and Cruyff Foundation, the 2015 Yak-Dan National Wheelchair Tennis Juniors Camp was successfully held at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi over the weekend.

The event, which had the theme “Breaking Barriers for Persons with Disability through Wheelchair Tennis”, attracted several children with physical disability in Ghana.

For the first time in the lives of disabled children from the Orthopedic Training Centre (OTC), Physically Challenged Action Foundation (PCAF), Garden City Special Schools, and Ghana Society for the Physically Disabled (GSPD), these children were introduced to wheelchair tennis.

Speaking to the media, the Chief Executive Director of Yak-Dan Shipping Company Limited – Mr. Daniel Nii Mensah – said introducing children with physical disabilities to wheelchair tennis is a stepping stone for all those who want to choose tennis as a career in sport.

“Getting them at this stage and with what I’ve seen, I believe that it’s a stepping stone for the children who want to do tennis even as a career in sports and we are all in to support this good cause,” he stated.

The National Coordinator of Ghana Wheelchair Tennis, Mr. Henry Larbi, called on all corporate and developmental organizations to support Ghana Wheelchair Tennis.

Two physically challenged children, Francis Acquah and Gafaru Mohammed, were selected among over 50 participants at the end of the clinic to represent Ghana at the prestigious ITF Johan Cruyff Africa Regional Juniors Camp in South Africa from September 28 to October 5, 2015.

Finally, finally, the much anticipated vigil of our time – #DumsorMustStop Vigil – has come to an end. As some Ghanaians already know, the purpose of this protest march from Legon to Tetteh Quarshie was to mount pressure on the sitting government to find a lasting solution to the erratic power supply and the current energy crisis the country is facing.

What started as a result of a single tweet from actress Yvonne Nelson ended up gaining massive support from some fellow celebrities and several Ghanaians who are also going through the same ‘dumsor’ ordeal.

Even though Yvonne Nelson and her team were expecting about 500 people to join them for the protest, thousands of irate Ghanaians turned out to support the cause. Interestingly, comedian David Oscar, who announced on his Facebook wall that it would be hypocritical of him to be part of the #DumsorMustStop campaign, was present at the venue.

IN PHOTOS: All-Round Filthy Gutters in the Capital | Why Accra Still Records the Highest Cases of Cholera in Ghana in this 21st Century

Accra, Capital of Ghana

Seriously, Accra is more than qualified to be ranked among the many African cities that truly understand dirtiness – and I mean real dirtiness. If you’ve had the opportunity to live in Ghana’s finest capital city before, this assertion will not sound eccentric to you.

From the homes of many Ghanaians living in Accra to the streets, one thing that you’re sure to come across is filth, most of it being sachet water rubbers.It is not surprising that Accra still records the highest cases of cholera in Ghana in this 21st century.

Mind you, the Mayor of Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Dr. Alfred Okoe Vanderpuye was recently adjudged Africa’s Best Mayor for developing the capital city. Development indeed! And a billboard was even mounted in Accra to welcome our Mayor back after a trip to receive his award in Angola. Dumping of garbage in gutters without any restriction is a norm in Ghana and as such, people gladly adhere to this rule – from the law enforcer to the layman on the street.

Lazy Journalism & Reduplication of Content on Our Ghanaian Radio Entertainment Talk Shows

Entertainment
Entertainment

Almost two years down the lane, I I wrote about how lazy most Ghanaian entertainment journalists have become. Among other things, I talked about duplication of content (verbatim copy and paste) on various entertainment blogs/websites as well as the unidirectional reportage of issues.

Even though I was met with some sort of rancor from some phony bloggers, I was exultantly enthused on the grounds that I spoke the palpable truth.

A year and a half has passed, yet there has not been any positive change in the entertainment industry with regards to reduplication of content by these same bloggers. They choose not to leave their comfort zones where plagiarism is a trademark to challenge their thinking faculties and put their writing propensities to test.

Sadly, the same breed of wind seems to be blowing across Ghanaian radio stations, with entertainment talk show hosts joining the doubling bandwagon.

Most often times than not, I keenly follow almost all entertainment programs, be it on radio or television. With the advent of technology and some internet-based radio apps, it’s now easy to stream and listen to several talk shows across the globe, making evaluations stress-free.

Ghanaian radio airwaves have become saturated with political programs, with less consideration given to other areas such as culture and art, fashion, etc. It therefore becomes interesting when entertainment programs spring up on a number of radio stations, paving way for intellectual discussions on issues concerning Ghana’s entertainment industry and that of the world at large.
