Adam_Bubz_Sway_Me_FiRi_GHANA_2WoW ‘Me FiRi GHANA‘ Salute You Adam Bubz, We must say we are proud and honoured to have you on board As A Creative ‘Rising Black Star’. Personally I believe this young gentleman is creating a rich vibe of himself. Adam’s creativeness is positively feeding and catering services for our community, which I must say is inspiring. To be able to stand up and put your hand out onto the fire is bravery, not everyone goes ahead to make their dream/or hobby come to life, some lack self-belief and therefore back out. Whereas this young gentleman, stood up strong and decided to let the ball roll, and look at where his ball has landed now. His ball will continue to roll effortlessly, and shine in prosperity!!

 

A Big Thank You for your time and co-operation, keep doing what you do, Never Give up, the sky’s your limit!

CAN 2012 Match Report from Ben…

Super goals from Asamoah Gyan & Ayew give Ghana Football Team victory over Mali

The Blackstars virtually assured themselves a place in the quarter-finals of the CAN with win over Mali. In a much improved performance from the first game two stunning second half strikes from Asamoah Gyan and Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew was the difference in Franceville.

Ghana made two changes from the first match against Botswana with Jonathan Mensah coming in for suspended skipper John Mensah. Playmaker, Kwadwo Asamoah also returned to the side in place of Jordan Ayew, while John Pantsil took over captain. For Mali star player Seydou Keita shook off a slight injury to retain his place in their starting line up. The game started at a high tempo with the Ghana having the lion share of possession. Asamoah had a shot from 25 yards which was spilled by Guinea keeper Soumaila Diakite but Sulley Muntari could only put his follow up shot wide under pressure from the defender.

As the half went on Mali began to grow into the game and were unlucky not score when a free kick from Cheick Diabate hit both posts (yes both!) after beating Ghana keeper Kwaresey. Mali midfielder Abdou Traore then saw his follow-up sail over. Towards the end of the half Ghana hit Mali on the counter attack with Pantsil playing a ball into the penalty box and Dede Ayew glancing his header agonisingly wide. A decent chance one would have to say.

To the second half and Ghana come out knowing they have to do more to get the win. They started with more purpose and 10 minutes into the half Dede Ayew zips in a shot at Diakite, which the Malian goalkeeper spills, but does well to prevent a follow-up from Gyan. It was looking increasingly likely that something special would be needed to break the deadlock and then it came; when Gyan opened his Nations Cup account in some style by curling in beautifully a free-kick from just outside the area beautifully into the top corner. A wonderful goal.

The goal gave Ghana more confidence as they began to come forward. The Blackstars doubled their lead 12 minutes later with a brilliantly-taken solo effort from the BBC’s African Footballer of the Year ‘Dede’ Ayew. Fellow goalscorer Gyan back-flicked the ball into his path cleverly, then Ayew did the rest himself by wrong-footing the Mali defence before switching feet skilfully and firing home with his left at the near post. Another great goal. Ghana were in the driving seat and held on for a vital deserved win after a better second half performance.

Ghana now go into the last game needing just a point to win the group. Guinea’s 6-1 win in the other game means they Mali and even Botswana (a very small chance) could still qualify.

Ghanaian Singer EFYA Shoots Video…

Efya_Ghanaian_Singer_Me_FiRi_GHANA_DOT_COMGhanaian songstress Efya, who music style has been compared to that of Fela Kuti, is shooting a video for her popular single A Moment’s Notice.

A Moment’s Notice, which featured in Shirley Frimpong Manso’s film Perfect Picture, is slow tempo romantic song guaranteed to capture the mood of upcoming Valentine’s Day. Efya’s soulful voice and her simple heartfelt lyrics accompanied by laid back percussion instruments will simply take your take your breath away.

The video concept centres on the emotions of a young man who falls in love after seeing a picture of Efya when he goes to a pub.

Efya is currently putting some finishing touches to her yet to be released album, which when released will be accompanied by a nationwide tour. She is definitely the artist to watch this year as usual, as soon the video is out Me FiRi GHANA will let you know!

CAN 2012 Match Report: Ghana Blackstars

Mixed fortunes for Mensah as Ghana labour to 1-0 win over Botswana

African_Cup_of_Nations_Ghana_Football_Team_Me_FiRi_GHANAThe Blackstars kicked off their CAN 2012 campaign with what was in the end a hard fought victory over CAN debutants Botswana in which they played most the second half with 10 men in Franceville. Ghana started unsurprisingly with Asamoah Gyan and Jordan Ayew up front with Sulley Muntari and Andre Ayew tasked with providing the creativity from midfield. Meanwhile for Botswana, Jerome Ramatlhakwane was leading their line but a notable absentee from their line up was influential midfielder Diphetogo “Dipsy” Selolwane who was unfortunatly for them was suspended.

For those who don’t know Ghana and Botswana are ranked as two of the most “peaceful” countries in Africa, but there was nothing peaceful about the start as a number of crunching tackles came in from Botswana. Ghana started well enough and were playing the ball around comfortably in the early stages. Full-backs, Inkoom and Painstil, were operating pretty much as wingers but still Ghana could not find a way through the well-marshalled Botswana defence.

Then came the goal! With John Mensah burying an in-swinging corner from close range. Skipper Mensah evaded his marker and Gyan helped the ball along nicely with the deftest of flicks at the near post. A well worked Ghana goal. At this point Ghana looked comfortable with the two Ghana frontmen Gyan and Jordan Ayew are linking up well. Subsequently just before half time Gyan broke into the Botswana box from the right, before firing one wide of the near post. A decent chance missed.

So to the second half and the Blackstars looked to pick up where they left off in the first half. Early on Gyan was making some great runs out wide, on the left this time. Then came the pivotal point in the match when goal scorer and captain Mensah was forced into a last ditch tackle as Ramatlhakwane is put clean through. Unfortunately it was a foul and earnt him a red card for bringing the striker down on the edge of the box. Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic reacted by substituting Sulley Muntari and bringing on defender Jonathan Mensah.

From here on in Ghana were forced to protect their lead. Botswana were surging forward regularly and the Blackstars were happy to let them have possession in less dangerous areas. Occasionally Ghana threatened on the counter attack with Anthony Annan going close after a great flick on from Gyan. However Ghana held on for a professional victory.

A lot of observers were hoping for an impressive performance from Ghana to justify their billing as one of the favourites for the cup. However at this early stage of the competition a win is a win.

Connecting YOU with Mark Asare…

Mark_Asari_Me_FiRi_GHANAI’m very glad to write about such a talented artist, I’ve been a fan of Mark Asari for some time now and just felt I must introduce Mark to the world. So I had a quick catch up with the wonderful Mark Asari. For those of you who may not know he is Ghanaian UK born Artist.

 

The interview went like this:

Ok I see your last name is Asari, are both your parents of Ghanaian Descent?
Yep both my parents are from Ghana. My surname is actually spelt Asare but for my stage name, Ive always spelt it as ‘Asari’ only because people always pronounced it wrong, and also it looks better on paper.

So how young are you?
I’m 22 years old

I’m a major fan of your music myself, and wonder what makes your style and approach unique from artists?
Thank you! I guess its my tone itself, once people hear me, they know its me. Also I grew up listening to a lot of songs produced by Rodney jerkins and written by Lashawn Daniels amongst others so their influence I guess comes out in my songs. I Don’t really think about it too much it just comes out that way.

Would you say your culture has inspired you in your music career?
Yea definitely, I love hip-life. I love the rhythms and the flow how they rap/sing, I definitely wanna incorporate that in my music, it just feels good and makes you wanna dance!

I’m sure you’ve heard about the new Dance craze Azonto, rate yours 1-10.
Yup! You know what honestly my Azonto is lacking abit, I need more practice still! I’d give myself a 5 out of 10.

You have a uniquely special voice! What actually inspired you to break out and show the world your voice.  Instead of reserving it?
Thanks again ! I just love music and singing is apart of me and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do from young. I was shy when people would ask me to sing but my friends would push me to do so and they’d say if you have a gift it’s no good to keep it to yourself, gotta share it!

When you sing does it feel releiving, does it relax and sooth you or?
When I sing I feel at ease lol

Tell your fans and the team about your latest single/ album and how we can find it?
I’m actually in a group called Encore consisting of another singer and a rapper. We’ve dropped the video for our single ‘fun last night’, and its out officially on the 26th on Feb but available for pre order on itunes..

Me FiRi GHANA are proud to say we appreciate such a unique artist, and ask Mark Asari to continue to shine !! You Guys can catch up with him on twitter @Markasari                                                       @wantmoreencore

Connecting YOU with “Chaleboy”…

“Inspirational. Motivational.. Intellectual.. Talented.. & Uniquely Gifted”..!

I am bursting with excitement about this young gentleman’s talent, OK let me just share it with you guys! *GIGGLES*

Whilst at an event the other day, A Dot (Nigerian Comedian) proudly introduced and welcomed; “ChaleBoy 

Chaleboy_The_Poet_Me_FiRi_GHANAThe name rang a bell however I could not remember where I heard the name before,  startled from the stage name my first impressions were; The name was funny and very unique, however I was ready to see what the young gentleman had in-store…

‘ChaleBoy’ introduced himself modestly yet with full on confidence he then neatly delivered his two piece poetry. The essence of his delivery was beautiful, the poetry itself was one of insightful wonders, ‘ChaleBoy’s’ two piece poetry was plain and simple – as in no music was needed – but the words spoke to me like music was playing. The piece was rich in imagery and painted a big picture. The manner in which he narrated his poem was very unique and rhythmic – which was quite shocking yet very impressive! ‘ChaleBoy’ Dazzled and baffled us with his smart and logic rhetorical questions, he challenged us with his statements of truth, and educated us with his reality of honesty. He endeared us with his passionate faith guided scripted piece, which really strengthened me, in-fact his piece deepened my thoughts and softened my heart.

‘In His own words ‘CHALEBOY’ Tells us About Himself’…. 

How young are you?
I’m 22 years old

Your Name how did it come about?
The nickname ‘ChaleBoy’ is something that stuck with me during my time at university. It was a name given to me by a friend who recognised my patriotic Ghanaian nature. Although people say it’s a weird name for a poet, it’s one that easily sticks in the minds of those who hear it.

Describe What You do?
I’m a psalmist, lyricist, spoken word artist, whatever you want to call me; poetry is where the art is

For clarity A psalmist is writer or composer of especially biblical psalms, and Lyricist, well lyric-means a poet, and a lyricist means a person who writes lyrics for songs.

What do you see In The Art of poetry?
As I said, I’ve always been into writing and initially when I started I wrote a lot of romantic poetry, to reflect the relationships I was in at the time. That helped me to get into the habit of artistically putting my feelings and emotions onto paper. Conscious rappers like Common and Talib Kweli inspired me in terms of lyrical prowess, and watching things like Def Poetry Jam as well as poetry slams at college gave me that push to get into performing poetry.

What led you To Follow into this pathway?
I’ve always been into creative writing right from primary school days, poetry is beautiful because it varies so much; depending on the writer. It’s literally an insight of the inner thoughts of a person that can’t be articulated in normal conversation.

Are both your faith & poetry intertwined?
My faith and poetry are definitely intertwined, but only since I got saved. Once I got to know Christ better and accept Him into my life, my whole style of performance poetry changed, and became what I describe as ‘purposeful’. It’s become very evident to me that God gave me this talent to use for His glory. So the plan is to go to the four corners of the Earth, spreading His message through poetry that is engaging yet relative to our generation.

The young gentleman is indeed no fresh face to Me FiRi GHANA as he has previously worked in ties with us performing at two of our events. He performed at Me FiRi GHANA’s ‘Backward Never’ in 2010 at Gold Coast, Brixton, and more recently opened the proceedings at the ‘WAM Campaign Launchlast year at the Ghana High Commission, where he proudly performed ‘What about Me’?

Personally this gentleman portrays poetry in a complete new light and in a different moderation; it’s very attractive to the younger generation. ‘ChaleBoy’ has revived poetry to a new level; personally I think he has kept poetry alive, especially to me. I think poetry is a great way to get the mind going, a great way to see how far our intelligence & imagination can run!

 

Let’s just say a modern, bigger and badder Shakespeare is in London Town, ready to shake the world off their feet with his massive, mind blowing Talent of Art. We should be proud to see this young gentleman making it big with his powerful secret of art: POETRY, ‘ChaleBoy’ is surely blessed.

 

We Are Proud Have On Board another Rising Black Star,

Making It Big, and Making the Nation Proud!

We Thank You.

Why Volunteer in Ghana…

Compulsory Volunteerism

Nine years ago I volunteered to work in an orphanage in a small village in the Eastern part of Ghana I am no Mother Theresa so I didn’t do it for a humanitarian or altruistic reasons.

Heinz_baby_foodI had 3 months to spare and nothing better to do but I am thankful I did it. It turned out to be one of the best things I have done in my life! Four volunteers, 2 lads (Si and I) and to lasses (Nana and Rach), I remember the first day I turned up at the orphanage. There were about 25 children, the oldest 14 years and the youngest was about 2 years. I smiled nervously as we were introduced to them and the 2 ladies that worked there. This was nothing like I had imagined. Well I did not expect the kids to be in 5 star accommodation and to be treated to a feast all day everyday but what I saw was well below my expectation. The children looked malnourished for a start and what they were having for breakfast? A tiny pot each containing Heinz baby food. Every child was to eat that, even the 14 year old! We all looked on in shock. I think Grandma (the owner of the orphanage) noticed this, she pulled up a pot and offered it to us, “try it” she said, “it tastes good”. Apparently they had been donated to the orphanage by her daughter who lives in Italy. We later had to explain its food meant for little babies. Bless her, she is illiterate so could not have read the labels.

Ghanaian_Children_Me_FiRi_GHANAAfter breakfast the children started getting dressed for school. I notice the clothes were either too tight on them or hung too loose. It was as though they had a pool of clothes from which each child had to take a dip every morning and don whatever their tiny bodies pulled out. The orphanage building itself was in a pretty good state. It’s a 3 room semi-detached house. There were massive straw mats spread in all the rooms suggesting every room was used as a bedroom. The area in front of the building was where they had their shower and is also used as a cooking area. Later on that morning we made our way to the “school”, it’s about 50 metres from the orphanage itself. I am not sure if you would call it a school, it’s a church hall which doubles up as a classroom for these children. Grandma could only afford to employ 1 teacher so all they had was one big class, with children of varying ages. Teaching aid was the billy basic. Two 3m x 2m chalk board painted black with carbon from used dry cell batteries, a few boxes of chalk and not enough books, pens and pencils for every child.

Teaching_in_GhanaAll four of us seemed confused. I bet the same question was ringing through each of our heads “where do we start?” We all imagined we were going into a structured organisation were we would be given defined roles but what we had was the exact opposite. The only structure we had was the orphanage building itself! After long deliberation, we decided Nana and Rach would take care of the orphanage – food, accommodation etc Si and I would take care of the school with the teacher. We got to work that same day. We split them up into 3 classes based on their ages and that was no mean task as these children had no clue how old they were! We each took a class. We managed to get some more books, pens and pencils. We had a good routine going and we had some pretty clever students too. Plans were in place to get some of them into the mainstream local government school.

Fast forward three months and you had 25 children in tears and 4 volunteers fighting to hold back theirs. It was time to say goodbye, it was time to go back home. Four ordinary people with a few months to spare had made a whole world of difference in the lives of these children. There are many orphanages and like institutions in dire need of voluntary workers. These institutions do not have the funds to employ full time workers. Most of them are started and managed by benevolent individuals out of the kindness of their hearts. Like the one I worked in, Grandma started and funded it from her own pocket, with donations from her daughter who is resident in Italy. During our time there we met an Irish timber merchant who lived in the next village. He made a couple of donations whilst we were there and hopefully that continued.

WAM_Campaign_Volunteer_in_Ghana_www.wamcampaign.orgI am well aware that in Ghana there are only a few organisations which run such voluntary programs so let us make good use of them. You don’t have to be a professional teacher or a social worker. All they need is a willing heart ready to help. It does not have to be 3 months; it could be a few hours a day, a week or a month. Many Ghanaian university graduates often complain about the lack of work experience when they come out of university which is a major requirement for most employers. Well here is my simple, common sense solution. If we make it compulsory for all students in Ghana to spend at least one holiday period during their four years at university to do some sort of voluntary work, then we would have killed two birds with one stone. One, students will leave university with some work experience for their CV and two; they would have provided a great service to the very needy in our society. It will also help teach our youth the priceless value of volunteering for unpaid work in a world where money is held in high esteem. Let us encourage the spirit of volunteerism!
