Ghana Youth Day is here!

GHANA HIGH COMMISSION UK HOSTS SECOND EDITION OF BIANNUAL EVENT – GHANA YOUTH DAY

 

The Ghana High Commission UK and Ireland will be holding the second edition of its biannual event, the Ghana Youth Day. The focus of Ghana Youth Day is to encourage young people to achieve their goals without resorting to gun and knife crime which continues to affect the black community. After the death of another teenager from the Ghanaian community, the Ghana High Commission supported by Tullow Oil – the event’s main sponsor – recognises the importance of such an event geared towards the future of tomorrow – the youth.

The day will showcase the talented and successful from the Ghanaian / black community who have been characterised as ‘Achievers’. This is to emphasise the message that with dedication and hard work, young people are able to be the person they aspire to be like the achievers in attendance. The event theme ‘Our Youth; Our future’, has continued on from its predecessor as it is understood that there is still more to be achieved for the benefit of young people and the wider community.  We anticipate that the high calibre of achievers involved will continue the vision that success is possible for all without the need for resorting to a weapon.

Ghana Youth Day will be held at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham. This is significant to the day as Tottenham is one of the areas notably affected by gun and knife crime, has a large Ghanaian community and also the starting point of last summer’s riots. We feel that Ghana Youth Day is playing its part in rebuilding the community.

The event will see young people being given the opportunity to discuss issues with their peers, participating in talks hosted by various speakers and Q&A session with the Achievers. Notable patrons to the event will include the award winning actor Hugh Quarshie, ITV newsreader Charlene White and the Ghana Youth Day patron, premiership footballer Emmanuel Frimpong. Other notable attendees are yet to be confirmed.

Ghana Youth Day is supported by various organisations from the Ghanaian community including Ghana Union, Noble Friends, Akwaaba UK, Ghanaian Londoners and MeFiri Ghana. The Ghana High Commission UK is taking an active role to prevent any further losses of young life and hopes that it can depend upon various areas of the community, particularly the Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) community as a whole to assist in its cause to do so. Ghana Youth Day is aimed at young people between the ages of 11 and 25 however, encourages support from all generations as the issues affect us all.

Kobby Mensah-Kumah, chairman of the Ghana Youth Day Organising Committee says: “The Ghana Youth Day is in its second term and we aim to make this year more successful, building on the strength of the previous event. Yet again, we are mourning the sad losses of a young life to violence. We are hoping the Ghana Youth Day and its partners can help to make a difference in the lives young people by showing them a different path – one that is fruitful without the use of destructive tools but rather enriching them with tools for success”.

GUBA 2012 is launched!

HUGH QUARSHIE HELPS LAUNCH GUBA 2012 AWARDS

  GUBA_Ghana_UK_Based_Achievement_Awards

The Launch of the Ghana UK Based Achievement (GUBA) Awards 2012 was a night of humour, humility and Ghanaian pride.  The 3rd Annual Launch of GUBA Awards 2012 was hosted by Mr Henry Bonsu, as guests were treated to a preview of what to expect at the Annual GUBA Awards scheduled for the 10th of November 2012 at the Park Plaza hotel.

A host of media personnel and public figures which includes GUBA patrons Hugh Quarshie and Team GB sprinter Jeanette Kwakye were in attendance to witness the unveiling of the 2012 nominees. Also at the launch were prestigious dignitaries, from his Excellency Prof Kweku Danso Boafo the Ghana High Commissioner to the UK, through plus size model Philomena Kwao to the brainiest student achiever Gillian Appau, an Oxford Student whose minimum grade ever is an A!

Opening the evening, GUBA’s CEO and founder Dentaa in her speech, congratulated all the nominees and stated that ‘All nominees are winners’.  She also emphasised the need for sponsorship and support to keep the organisation alive.

Prof Kweku Danso Boafo’s love and dedication to Ghana and his support for GUBA did not go unnoticed. Mr Charles Thompson MBE read a citation followed by a video cited by Lord Paul Boateng before GUBA presented his Excellency with a special award, as an acknowledgement for his outstanding contribution to Ghana and his support for GUBA since its commencement.

Upon receiving his award the High Commissioner said: ‘I wish to congratulate the founder of GUBA and her team, Dentaa and we admire the efforts you’ve made.’

The GUBA Children’s Foundation addressed the issue of autism and its prevalence in Ghana and raised awareness of the lack of funding and recognition of autism. Plans of an Autism Trust were made public and an appeal was made to the guests for assistance in a bid to reduce the level of stigma surrounding disabilities in Ghana.

A moment of silence was observed for the late President Prof Atta Mills, a gesture which transcended to the late Ghanaian leaders and Presidents that have been present at the Ghana High Commission prior to the launch.

Nominations were read out by Mr George Ameyaw, PR for GUBA, in preparation for voting which starts on Monday 24th September 2012 on the GUBA website, www.gubaawards.co.uk.

The night was brought to an end with a speech by GUBA ambassador, Holby City actor Mr Hugh Quarshie, surrounding the question of what it means to be Ghanaian. ‘A sense of humour and humanity brings us together as a people and that is why I love Ghana’ remarked the star.  He stated that ‘it is what Ghanaians do that brings us together and not where we are from’, a sentiment which was shared by all those present and the very embodiment of the GUBA awards. He expressed gratitude for being invited to be part of such an inspirational event.

The Ghana UK Based Achievement (GUBA) Awards held an exceptional launch, one that has raised expectations for the upcoming award ceremony.

This event was fully supported by our partners; The Africa Channel, Signup International in Ghana and The Voice Newspaper.

We left Africa…

We Left Africa- But We Will Be Coming Back Home

 

This is inspired by Afua Hirsch’s article for The Guardian: Our Parents Left Africa- Now We Are Coming Home. This article is not meant to be a direct response to the one named above but to merely offer a different perspective on the issue of the economic migration of Africans to the west and the return home- from the perspective of one born and raised in Africa but living in the west.

 

I was born and raised in Ghana, but I have been in and out of the UK since I was about 17 years old. I therefore did not have to go through the topsy-turvy period of trying to discover my cultural identity as do many children of African descent growing up in the west. Though I am embarrassed by stories like the one that appeared on the cover of the Economist in 2000, I am not affected as much as my cousins who have been born and raised in the UK and whose knowledge of Africa is largely shaped by what they see in the media. Unlike them, I know of a different Africa- an African where the roads are just as good as those in the west and people drive around in Range Rovers. Consequently, I did not go through that excruciating experience of denying ones own roots and disassociating oneself from Africa and anything African. Many like me, who relocate to the west at an older age, have different kinds of issues to deal with; you get white Europeans looking at us like we all speak in clicks and have come from war ravaged countries where we walked 10miles every morning just to fetch water from the same river our livestock drink from. I remember I was once sat in a predominantly white church where the vicar had just returned from an evangelism trip to Uganda. Before his sermon that morning, he decided to show the congregation photos from his trip on the projector screen. He had visited a church branch in one of the shanty towns. The flick showed images of living accommodations constructed from scrap metal, plywood and plastic sheets-one on top of the other and situated right in next to a massive refuse site. As I sat there lost in my thought wondering what becomes of children born in such an environment, I had a gentle tap on my shoulder. It was the vicar’s wife and her words were; “Does this remind you of home?” I was dumbstruck and could not utter a word, so she obviously took my silence to mean a “yes” in response to her question. I could not help but think the whole congregation had the same question on their minds. The vicar had no other photos of Uganda other than that of the shanty town. So a congregation of about 20 went home that Sunday with one image of Africa in their heads. This is our battle; constantly battling the stereotypical image of the African. And we battle these stories and images not because we deny Africa faces issues of the poverty, famine and senseless wars, we do so because we know there is another Africa whose story never makes the headlines. Because we are aware that the constant reproduction this negative image does nothing but rob us of our dignity as a people.

Though it may still be true that life abroad means “access to a stable income, reliable healthcare and a credible education”, unlike the Africans from Afua’s mother’s era, leaving for this breed of African migrants is not permanent. Not only are flights home more frequent and comparatively cheaper, we are starkly aware of the changing fortunes of Africa and the many economic opportunities its offering. So when we have had the education, the work experience and managed to pull enough resources together, we find our way back home. And we do go back with good experience, having traveled the world and observed and engaged with many other cultures. That is why whenever I go back to Ghana to see the family, I scream if I have to queue up for hours and be played like a ping pong between different customer service desks just to get my own money from a bank; because I have lived in a society where customer service is excellent most of the time. And in the same vain, whenever I visit Ghana, my heart warms with pride when I see my neighbour admonishing my niece and nephews when they are being mischievous because I have lived in a society that has a broken family and societal system and experienced the consequences.

I do not hold our experiences to be richer and better than those who have lived on the continent all their lives, but our experience however offers a different perspective which can be harnessed for our common good. The African migrant of today has the ability to negotiate both worlds with relative ease. We can put on a British or an American accent if the need rises or switch to our local African languages so we do not get swindled by people back home who may mistake us to be foreigners.

Year after year, several Africans resident in Europe and America make that final journey back home. It was several years ago they begun that sojourn- they carried not just their luggage and passports bearing a much sort after visa, they also carried within them a dream. A dream that some day they can come back home and build economic empires so big that their children would not have to make this journey ever again. But as one group gets off the plane at the Kotoka International Airport, another jumps on, back to Europe and America beginning their sojourn. It has become something of a cycle. But this cycle is losing its momentum. For a long time bad press has sucked away belief in us as a people and in the continent. But somehow there is a new sense of optimism within Africans – on and off the continent, returnees and “stayees”. Africa is on the surge and it is no longer so uncool to be African or to be associated with anything African. I tune the radio to Kiss Fm in London and I hear D’banj singing Oliver Twist, I go to a club in Dortmund and I see people dancing azonto, I drive through Brussels and I see someone in African prints. Africa is on the rise.

On my last visit to Ghana in April 2012, I sat watching telly with my mother. It was a children’s rap competition and what struck me was the fact that none of these children performed lines by Drake or J. Cole, they were spitting the lyrics of Sarkodie, Kwaw Kesse and EL. I sat with a grin across my face. The change has finally begun. When I was growing up our rap icons were all American. We wanted to speak and dress like them, so we longed to be American. Now this generation of Ghanaian children have their heroes in Ghana. Just like their icons, these children now believe they can live in Ghana and be whatever they wish to be.

Analysis of the Black Star’s football match

Ghana V Malawi: Christian Atsu shines as Ghana edge closer to CAN 2013 Finals

 

The Black Stars of Ghana moved closer to a place at CAN 2013 with a 2-0 win over Malawi in Accra in the final round first leg of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. Asamoah Gyan captained the side in his first appearance since returning from a self-imposed break but it was Christian Atsu of FC Porto who stole the show with a fine performance.

He gave Ghana the perfect start, settling any nerves with the opener after just eight minutes to celebrate his first home match for Ghana. The Porto player tapped in from a close range shot from Olympique Marseille’s Andre Ayew. Although the Black Stars were in the lead with Atsu creating several chances, Malawi to their credit defended with vigilance to ensure that they went  into the half time interval with the same score line at one nil.

In the second half With Malawi sitting deep and seeking to soak up Ghana pressure, Ghana were made to work for their second, which fell the way of Anthony Annan only six minutes after the interval. Annan set the stadium alight with a 20-yard shot to make it 2-0 to the Black Stars.

Malawi’s cause was not helped when James Sangala was dismissed in the latter stages, and they now face a big ask if they are to reach the Cup of Nations finals for only the third time in their history.

Meanwhile look in a strong position to qualify for CAN 2013 and the performance of Atsu will come as a boost to coach Kwesi Appiah as he considers his midfield options. Atsu showed just why clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur were interested in signing him this summer.

The second leg will take place between 12-14 October 2012 in Malawi. In the Black Stars we trust!

Until next time…

Another future hit in the making?

DR CRYME’S NEW SINGLE HITS THE CHARTS IN 2 WEEKS

 

 

After dropping his “Finally Finally” album last year and consequently embarking on village tours in Ghana, the “Kill Me Shy” hitmaker has jumped on the Ghana and Afrobeat Chart again. His “1Step 2Back” hit single which was officially launched in Scotland about two weeks ago is currently on number 7 on the Global Afrobeats Chart with P-Square and Camp Mulla still battling the Number 1 position. It wasn’t a surprise to the populace when it entered the Showbiz and Citi Charts just a week after its release in Ghana.

Dr Cryme is very impressed with the media support and indicated that his next release party will be in Takoradi on September 21 at Paragon Night Club and Tarkwa on September 22. He mentioned that he will love to do an equitable promotion and enable the song sink into the Ghanaian showbiz system simultaneously. The song which is a very impressive Afrobeat, combines very good rap lines and is very easy to dance to.

Dr Cryme has a lot of awards to his credit including winning UK’s prestigious Golden Heart Award with D’Banj in 2011.The E-Jam Records CEO, Korsah-Brown indicated that there will be consistency in the release of singles as requested by fans. Next to be released will be a song that almost leaked in the UK, Dr Cryme featuring Sway entitled “You and I. Two Videos will also be dropped in September namely, “More Fan” and “1Step2Back”.

Crunchtime for the Black Stars

Black Stars name squad for crunch game against Malawi

 

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has named his squad for the vital final African Nations Cup qualifier against Malawi and a friendly against Liberia. The Black Stars will host Malawi in Accra on 8 September in the first leg of the final qualifier for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. They then travel to Monrovia three days later to play Liberia in a friendly.

There are no major surprises in the 24 man squad with several established players, including Andre Ayew and Emmanuel Agyemang- Badu who missed this month’s friendly against China, returning to the squad. Though there is a place for Chievo midfielder Isaac Coffie has been handed his first cap, the holding midfielder is someone I liken to Michael Essien who continues his absence from the squad while he attempts to regain full fitness.

Berekum Chelsea midfielder Solomon Asante, who was left out of June’s World Cup qualifier against Lesotho, returns after fears over his nationality were clarified and the GFA declared he was eligible to play for Ghana. He joins five home-based players, including his Berekum Chelsea teammates; Ernest Sowah and Emmanuel Clottey.

Asamoah Gyan is also named in the squad as he was against China but he has not started a match since he came out of his self imposed retirement. His place in the starting line up could be under threat, this is after Richmond Boakye Yiadom (a player I featured on the blog last month; A star in the Making? 7/8/2012) scored a debut goal for the Black Stars against China and put in a very good all round performance.

The full Ghana squad is as follows;

Goalkeepers: Adam Kwarasey (Stromgodset, Norway), Ernest Sowah (Berekum Chelsea), Fatau Dauda (AshantiGold)

Defenders: Daniel Opare (Standard Liege, Belgium), Harrison Afful (Esperance, Tunisia), Razak Nuhu (Stromgodset, Norway), Samuel Inkoom (Dnipro, Ukraine), John Boye (Rennes, France), Isaac Vorsah (Hoffenheim, Germany), Jerry Akaminko (Eskisehirspor, Turkey), Rashid Sumaila (Kotoko)

Midfielders: Anthony Annan (Osasuna, Spain), Isaac Coffie (Chievo, Italy), Derek Boateng (Dnipro, Ukraine), Emmanuel Agyemang Badu (Udinese, Italy), Kwadwo Asamoah (Juventus, Italy), Christian Atsu (Porto, Portugal), Solomon Asante (Berekum Chelsea), Andre Ayew (Marseille, France)

Strikers: Jordan Ayew (Marseille, France), Boakye Yiadom (Juventus, Italy), Emmanuel clottey (Berekum Chelsea), Abdul Majeed Warris (Hacken, Sweden), Asamoah Gyan (Al Ain, UAE).

What do you think of the squad is there anybody not selected that should be? And do you think Gyan should start the match against Malawi?
