Here Are The Winners of the 20th GJA Awards 2015.

Congratulations to Seth Kwame Boateng of JoyFm for winning the GJA Best Journalist Award for 2014! I felt so proud of him (never met him before) as he gave thanks to God for this miracle. A miracle because he started out as a receptionist at Love Fm. From a receptionist to a National Award winner! He poured praise on his wifeas he quoted Proverbs 18:22 and how he found favor because of her. I wish I could have seen her face.  As a last born of 17 children this is how far the Lord has brought him.

FashionistaGh held its annual shopping festival once again and it was still an unmissable event. The three day shopping festival #fghshop2015 was all hustle and bustle in the bristling 33 degree heat. Despite numberous air-conditioning, the heat just refused to leave the white enclave drenching both vendors and buyers in uncompromising sweat! Nevertheless both participants had a grand time strolling through hundreds of stands and emptying their pockets for the latest African fashion and accessories.

And to celebrate this year’s event , Ericsson Ghana to show their support for women advancement across the globe, held a mentoring and speaking session to engage female engineering students from the various tertiary institutions across the country with esteemed world-recognised women in engineering and technology careers.

The annual arts, music and everything else cultural event ChaleWote took place recently at the usual location; JamesTown and once again it was filled with lots of eye-brow raising artwork, trendy African street fashion, street art and lots more!

I however didnt feel the energy of this year's event as compared to last years which was more packed with vendors and the curious. I made it to the second day after church and it was good to see more people attend. 

JoyFm once again organised its annual bridal fair with the usual splendour and buzzed activities. This year the event dubbed  'Together Naturally' run for four days and it had more vendors and great attendance. Although I missed the marriage seminar, I found time to attend the Saturday session to see what was new on the wedding organisation planet. Was there anything new and exciting being offered by the vendors? 

#VGMA2014 - Unseen Photos & The Candid Review.

So by now you have heard, seen and read what happened at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and what a bore it was. The Shatta movement fans are still celebrating over Shatta Wale's Artiste of the Year award (which I hope has been found by now) and Sonnie Badu is also in cloud nine for winning 2 awards Gospel Artiste of the Year and Best Male Vocal Performance of the Year. 

#VGMA2014 You No Force Kwraa (Worst) Fashion Moments

I have always been intrigued by the choice of wear for most events in Ghana especially music awards, movie awards, musical concerts etc. I have seen some disastrous outfits which leave little to the imagination and raises a few eyebrows from onlookers. 

Sadly the fans and some guests arrived at the #VGMA2014 awards looking like they had to squeeze every fat into a smaller sized dress whilst some walked or attempted to walk in mountainous platforms which forced them to walk like drunken giraffes. I am being a bit sharp but what I saw yesterday just makes me wonder why someone would put themselves through the pain and discomfort in order to look 'fashionable'?
