Bahamas is known for its distinctive experience and a trip to any side of the Atlantic Ocean’s islands guarantees an irreplaceable experience. It’s this sort of idiosyncratic experience that Holy Trinity Spa & Health Farm offers; a collection of state of the art recreational facilities surrounded by the beauty of nature, all for your mental and physical wellness.
You may argue that you would find great Spa centres across Ghana and I wouldn’t be able to counter that. But Holy Trinity Spa and Health Farm offers exceptionally more, a unique package of comfort and wellness, with the Spa being just a small component.
Perhaps you’ve not heard of Pet Therapy but you can surely envisage the calmness and associated excitement that come with feeding beautiful rabbits and ducks. It’s priceless to connect with these animals through feeding and to have them run around you.
When you’ve seen a lot and have visited several unique places in the world, it becomes inherently difficult to be flabbergasted by newly put together edifices, irrespective of the architecture and décor.
The last time I was dumbfounded by a structure was when I visited the magnificent Gothic Cologne Cathedral in Germany, a masterpiece which took several centuries to be completed—from 1248 to 1880.
Yesterday, that stupendous feeling returned when I walked into Holy Trinity Health Spa & Health Farm’s newly built majestic ‘Melchizedek’ building—with a thoughtful ‘Arabian golden’ ambiance and an eye-catching in use ‘antique telephone.’
Holy Trinity Spa & Health Farm has several beautiful spacious executive rooms with lovely interiors but Melchizedek stands out: a perfect pick for a worthy anniversary, a presidential treat, a honeymoon or a celebrity retreat.
‘Melchizedek’ is stationed at the heart of the wellness center, with the Volta River a few meters away and surrounded by different species of animals; from Rabbits to Crocodiles.
Any time you make a trip to Holy Trinity Spa & Health Farm at Sogakope in the Volta Region—and provided you can afford, first ask for Melchizedek.
The Health Spa & Health itself is perfectly conceived, uniquely and uncompromisingly executed in all its parts, with hospitable staff all over at the service of your wellness and comfort.
Samira Yakabu, multiple award-winning costumier and manager of star actress-Jackie Appiah tied the knot with her handsome partner-Amjad at a grand 3-day spectacular wedding in Tamale and Bolgatanga a few days ago—and GhanaCelebrities.Com has all the photos for you.
Until the wedding, Samira Yakubu managed to keep her relationship with Amjad away from the media and as such this came as a surprise to many. We are told they’ve been together for many years.
It was a beautiful 3-day grand wedding with several celebrities making appearances. Of course Jackie Appiah was by her side, so was Kalsoume Sinare and others.
And the 3-day wedding was not enough, a reception is scheduled to take place this weekend at a posh hotel in Accra—the beauty of marriage is being celebrated.
Chinese restaurants are all over the world —and North London is by means exempted from the aggressive Chinese takeover.
However, not every Chinese restaurant is worth being recommended; they may all present the same menu but they surely do taste a lot different—ranging from those that will get you to throw up to those that take pride in serving delicious meals like Jade Palace.
North London may not sit in the minds of people as one of London’s posh suburbs but it has certain key affluent areas like Crouch End where you would find the residence of certain local celebrities. Of course you wouldn’t catch Jonathan Ross there, but trust me; it’s a preferred celebrity safe zone.
The people of Teshie, a fishing community along the coast of Accra, have rounded off their annual Homowo festival with a street carnival and party jam. The event, which attracted a gargantuan crowd, made up of indigenes and foreigners displayed the rich cultural heritage of the Teshie to the rest of the world.
The street carnival which is referred to as Kpaa Shimo is celebrated with war like songs composed by the local people. The song is laced with satire and obscenities aimed at exposing some of the ills of the community and the country at large.
This year, the chieftaincy dispute and the power crises were the major themes of the songs. Various groups such as Mind You, Ananse, Jah Labour, Ghana, Tafo Y3 Fe3o and Port were the main bearers of the theme songs. They wielded huge flags and artifacts and relics relevant to the culture and traditions of the people.
Not too long ago, Excellence In Broadcasting (EIB) Network re-branded Kumasi-based Ultimate Radio and gave it a facelift. .
Less than a year since the station started operation, it has been performing tremendously well in the Ashanti Region, gaining massive listenership within a very short period.
The accomplishments of the station can be attributed to the various outstanding programmes they keep educating, informing, and entertaining listeners with.
Among other things, one key thing EIB Network promised when the station was launched was to strive and use Ultimate 106.9 FM engineer positive transformation in the society, inspire leadership, and be a good entity to the community by giving back to the community from time to time.
Living in an absolute dirty country can sometimes be disgusting. One has no other option than to turn a blind eye and live with the reality.
If you are in search of one of the filthiest countries on the globe, look no further because Ghana – the gateway to Africa – is unconditionally one of them. It is not surprising that the country was recently ranked 7th as the world’s dirtiest country.
Day in day out, the volume of filth in the country increases, without any proper measures put in place to curb it.
Apart from few well-planned communities where cleanliness is key, all other communities in Ghana define dirtiness to its core. It seems the government and citizens have not learnt their lessons after the recent flood caused by poor drainage systems and choked gutters on June 3, 2015 claimed the lives of several individuals.
Over the weekend, Captain Planet of 4×4 fame (real name-Sylvanus Dodji Jeoffrey) officially opened his FASHION PLANET boutique which has brought authentic designer wears straight to Accra—from London, Paris, New York and the top fashion cities.
Captain Planet has high taste for good and designer brands, which reflects the various designer collections FASHION PLANET has become home to, right here in Accra, Ghana.
According to Captain Planet, it certainly cost a lot to fly into United Kingdom, France, United States, Switzerland and those countries which have become the homes of some of the world’s top designer brands—so he is using Fashion Planet to bridge the travel gap and serve at home the same quality, designer and authentic wears people travel out for.
To achieve this, the musician has been travelling extensively in and out of the UK, USA, France and other countries, striking deals with some of the world’s top brands to connect them to the Ghanaian market via his Fashion Planet outlet.
The shop is situated opposite the Baatsona Total in Accra…
The Bakatue Festival which is celebrated by the chiefs and people of Elmina in the Central region of Ghana each year is here—and GhanaCelebrities.Com has obtained some photos showing the rich culture of the people of Elmina.
The festival is celebrated on the first Tuesday in the month of July every year—to mark the beginning of the fishing season in Elmina.
On Saturday-27th June 2015 at the maiden edition of Golden Movie Awards Africa, several movie stars and industry persons were honoured for their impressive contributions to the film industry, at the State Banquet House, Accra.
Nigerian movies-30 Days In Atlanta and Knocking On Heaven’s Door and Ghanaian movies-Devil In the Details, and Made In Agege were the biggest winners at the 2015 Golden Movie Awards. Knocking on Heaven’s Door won the Best Film nod while Devil in The Details bagged the Best Director nod for Shirley Frimpong Manso.
Also, some top Ghanaian musicians graced the event with their performances—artistes who performed included Legendary Pat Thomas, Irene Logan, Nana Yaa, Kwame Yeboah, Eazzy and a host of others.
Check out the photos from the event below + the full list of the winners…
The rich will continue to be rich and enjoy the money they make out of their businesses.
Not only is he associated with sexy girls, Ghanaian billionaire-Kenpong (real name Kennedy Agyepong) does love expensive and ‘sexy’ automobiles.
Even though he owns several expensive and luxurious cars, business mogul – Kenpong, has added a new G Wagon to his fleet of cars.
The brand new G Wagon has an exquisite hand-woven dashboard and leather seats. Its accessories include an ipad which functions as the car’s sound system controller. Not only that, it also has a 40” flat screen fixed at the back seat with a Dstv satellite dish.
The 24” sporty suspension rim vehicle has a high profile in-built stereo assembled according to Kenpong’s specifications (Money indeed talks).
His new car was the side of attraction at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday. Myriads of soccer fans at the stadium gathered round the car with great amazement, according to reports.
The high class four wheel drive car which is the latest for Kenpong caught the attention of the soccer fans when he showed up at the Accra Sports Stadium to watch the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers between Ghana and Mauritius.
This is the season everyone became unsullied; this is the season no one could sit back and smugly say ‘I know what is going to happen’: but this was also the season that has drawn the most ire and vitriol from a fan base upset with a huge chunk of the direction the show’s plot is heading towards.
Game of Thrones Season 5 is mere hours away from completion, but not everyone is happy. This season has been a typical Thrones season, a slow start, a thrilling mid section, a game changing 9th episode, then the (upcoming) denouement in episode 10. And whilst this season has hit all those stops, there are tangible changes in plot and character that is making fans very concerned.
Thrones is no stranger to gratuitous violence, nudity, other hard to watch and difficult to process scenes.. The infamous ‘Red Wedding’, Ned’s beheading, Oberyn’s head squeezing, Joffrey’s death (not really), pushing a 9 year old out of a window tower to cover incest, and the numerous scenes of s*xual violence against women.
Yet somehow this season has managed to top all these shocking and sometimes controversial scenes, and not exactly in a good way. You remember when Jaime was bad, then he became good, then he went on to rape his sister over their son’s corpse and suddenly he was bad again; well they pulled that same bait and switch again this season.
Stannis Baratheon has been called by some as the one true queen of Westeros. He is the legitimate heir under the current regime (his brother’s kids are bastards born of incest and do not belong on the throne), he is the only king who listened when the wall called for help, and he is the king currently en route to fight the evil Boltons. He is also a people burning religious fanatic with a witch beside him who just burned his only daughter.
That scene, the hardest I ever watched on Thrones- and remember the atrocities I listed above, including a wedding that saw a king and his entire army and his wife and her unborn foetus butchered- is one of the biggest controversies of the season. Some feel the Red God arc has been played to death, or that Stannis betrayed everything a king is supposed to stand for. What can’t be denied is that he just sold his soul to the devil and lost any interest to most people as a morally ambiguous character.
Which leaves Dany as the only monarch with any moral claim to rule people, but she’s dithering around on a different continent, in a place which obviously does not want her and whose entire society she’s uprooted without any proper solutions to their problems. She’s had to compromise so much now she might as well as not made reforms in Meereen in the first place, and it was at one of the things she’s had to compromise on that led to her almost demise in the last episode.
Those of you who have issues with my diction when it comes to certain issues or articles; this commenter on GhanaCelebrities.Com seems to have perfectly captured it.

GhanaCelebrities.Com has been reliably told that, the above house which certain sections of the media reported as having been bought by Ghanaian football star- Asamoah Gyan for $3 million is not located at MCcarthy Hill in Accra where they placed it—rather it’s at KASOA.
According to our source who also gave us the below photos, the house is situated near Kasoa, a little after the toll booth on your way into Central Region and that the house was built by blockfields Ghana LTD.
For those who know the Accra-Kasoa road, after you have passed Gospel Light junction, take a further 10 minutes drive and you will see the Densu river behind the house on your right hand side of the road.
Apart from the obvious swimming pool, we are told the house has a cinema which takes up to 50 people and has about 10 bedrooms with flat screen TVs in every walkway, room and the kitchen.
A few months ago, Nathaniel Kwabena Anokye Adisi (Bola Ray) and Kwabena Duffor’s Excellence In Broadcasting (EIB) Networks acquired Accra based radio station-Live 91.9 Fm—and they’ve just not imported pinnacle presenters to the station, the studios have received a complete renovation.
Currently, the radio station houses Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD), Jeremie Van-Garshong, MsNaa, Jay Foley, Sammy Forson, Antoine Mensah and several others—driving the youthful airwaves in a fierce assault on already existing youth friendly brands like YFM…
While out there, we spoke to D.J Blow ( William Nanka-Bruce III)-the Business Manager of Live Fm about the focus of the station—an opportunity he used to take us through the station’s vision and lined up activities as it attempts to overtake its main competitor.
The 68th Cannes Film Festival came to an END over the weekend after several great films made it to the festival this year. As a film critic, my best film from this year’s Cannes is Pete Docter’s ‘Inside Out’.
While at Cannes, I walked pass the beautiful-expensive Yachts and Boats each day to the festival grounds and just as I did last year, I decided to capture some photos of these ‘small water houses’ for those who love them—and plan on buying one at the right time.
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.
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.
GhanaCelebrities.Com decided to visit some areas in the capital and check out how clean Ghanaians keep their gutters. Our ratings, on a scale of 0 – 100, might give the impression that we are mean to Ghanaians so we will allow you to do the ratings after glancing through the photos.
If Ghana’s first president –Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was alive today, he would have regretted making this statement; “The black man is capable of managing his own affairs.” The activities of the black man only proves that he’s only capable of mismanaging his own affairs and even that of others that have been left in … Read more
Kasapa 102.3 FM which is part of Kwabena Duffour and Bola Ray’s Excellence in Broadcasting (EIB) network took off today with its morning show hosted by Fiifi Banson, a product of Peace Fm. The Kasapa buzz is strong so is the expectation but with many years of radio experience and presenting style which fits the … Read more
When it comes to radio broadcast, all listeners can attest to the excellent sound and programmes they receive but we hardly get to see where all the voices are coming from; the working atmosphere. As such, GhanaCelebrities.Com visited Accra based Starr FM, stationed in the Meridian House, near the Nima Police Station-Ring Road Central to bring you exclusive photos of the ambience where the action takes place.
As expected, it’s a beautiful and well put together working environment, clean and warm for the presenters and all the workers—no doubt their excellence is felt even in our homes.
Surely, it’s not just the star presenters who are driving the success of the station; it’s the star environment which warms the spirit of all the workers to deliver their best. They say, the environment you work within speaks a lot about your output and Starr Fm has definitely taken note of that…
Two companies have already expressed interest in buying sponsorship package for GhanaCelebrities.Com’s coverage of this year’s Cannes Film Festival—and even though we are still talking, I am excited they’ve expressed interest in taking up some of the bills off our shoulders.
Also, one of my friends have donated 500 dollars already—and I have received messages from some appreciative readers asking if they can chip in individual donations aside the corporate sponsorship I am looking for. Of course, YES. Why Not?
Last year, my Cannes trip was partially financed by individual readers who love the work we do out here on the blog but this year, I decided to go in for corporate sponsorship as the budget is a little big but I didn’t think about merging corporate sponsorship and readers’ donations until I got an email this morning from a reader asking if she can chip in.
So for those readers who LOVE the crazy work we do on GhanaCelebrities.Com—ranging from the thought provoking articles to gossip, this is the time to show your damn appreciation. Stop being stingy and throw in some coins by clicking the donate button below…
For the 68th Cannes Film Festival, GhanaCelebrities.Com has been invited by the Press Office of the film festival—to attend the prestigious film festival this year again.
I am looking for a corporate sponsorship to the Cannes Film Festival 2015—and for this sponsorship, any article we will publish from Cannes during the festival period will mention the sponsor below it (Something like; this article is sponsored by blah blah—with a little info on the sponsor).
Why should anyone want to sponsor this?
Apart from the Cannes Film Festival being the biggest film festival in the world which means such a sponsorship and mention would bring you a lot of new people who would be searching to read about the festival —GhanaCelebrities.Com receives over 1.2 million pageviews a month, and mentioning you below all our Cannes related articles is the best publicity/advertisement deal you would ever have.
Apart from GhanaCelebrities.Com, none of the known African websites/blogs cover the Cannes Film Festival directly each year (they all depend on western media for their reports)—and so, your business sponsorship or association with our first hand coverage which gets picked by countless blogs and websites would surely fetch you more than we anticipate.
With the movie awards season out of the way, it’s time to look ahead to the rest of the year and see what film treats we have awaiting us.
Avengers – The Age of Ultron
Marvel is swiftly becoming the go-to name for summer blockbusters. And with the release of the next instalment of the Avengers franchise due later this year, it seems that Marvel will want to top the amazing $330 million it made in America alone from Guardians of the Galaxy last year.
So far the Age of Ultron promises all of the intense action that we’ve come to expect from this series with the superheroes tackling a crime-fighting robot gone haywire called Ultron.
