Nnaase Afore 2023

Gospel music is a genre of music. It varies depending on the culture and social setting in which it is created, performed, and even defined. God, the creator of the universe is praised and worshipped through the creation and performance of gospel music. There are many people in the entertainment industry who are into gospel music.  In Ghana, some popularly known musicians are the likes of Diana Hamilton, Piesie Esther, and Abena Serwaa Ophelia among others.

Formerly known as Ophelia Nyantakyi, Abena Serwaa Ophelia is a veteran gospel musician and fashion designer. She is well-known for her song “Daadaadaa” and other songs. The seasoned gospel artist has hosted an annual concert dubbed Nnaase Afore for the past two years, and it has been a success both times.

On Sunday, January 29, 2023, at 4 p.m., the third edition of ‘Nnaase Afore’ which is translated to mean ‘Sacrifice of Thanksgiving’, was held at the PIWC-ATTC Dome in Kokomlemle. Indeed, this year’s edition of the annual concert was a great success seeing as many gospel musicians and patrons trooped in to support their sister, mother, and friend, Abena Serwaa Ophelia. The event started with the red carpet where there was an interview with the woman of the night, several gospel musicians, and other patrons who participated. One thing that cut across in the interviews was how all who were interviewed expressed their gratitude to God for how far He has brought them, and for an event such as the night’s.

The concert progressed with performances from several musicians in the likes of Stella Seal, Tagoe Sisters, Cindy Thompson, Piesie Esther, Francis Amo, and Lady Chatty among other musicians. It was such an amazing time, and all who attended left with smiles of accomplishment. Make it a date to attend next year’s Nnaase Afore, and your life will never be the same.

International Day of Education: To Invest in People, Prioritize Education

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Education is illuminating and a vital right. No country will achieve success and growth without an inclusive and accessible education. The International Day of Education is observed annually, and the purpose of the day is to spread the light of fortune, peace, and education among everyone.

Several activities, workshops, seminars, and other educational programs are held worldwide to ensure that everyone is aware of the importance of education on the occasion of International Education Day, which is observed on January 24. Its 5th anniversary is being celebrated this year, and the theme is “To Invest in People, Prioritize Education.” The purpose of commemorating this day is to ensure that everyone, regardless of race or religion, may access education.

Countries will not succeed in attaining gender equality and ending the cycle of poverty that is leaving a million children, youth, and adults behind without accessible and equitable quality education and lasting opportunities for everyone. The UN Transforming Education Summit in September 2022 gave rise to a worldwide movement, and this year’s day will advocate for preserving that momentum while outlining how to put commitments and international initiatives into practice. In light of the current global recession, widening inequality, and the climate issue, education must be given priority to advance toward all of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This year’s International Day of Education has been set aside by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to honor Afghanistan women and girls who have been denied access to education. It demands that the ban limiting their access to school be immediately lifted. UNESCO’s Global Education Monitoring Report and Institute for Statistics, which tracks nations’ progress toward the benchmarks, including those covered at the Transforming Education Summit, will also release the first SDG4 benchmark publication as part of the event.

Happy International Day of Education!

Share this article with family and friends to promote the annual International Day of Education.

A PRECURSOR OF THE BOMA 2022

Following the Boma of Africa, which took place today, July 8, 2022, a precursor to the festival was hosted at the Dominion Television studios. The show’s hosts were Fiona Achieng and Mark Attitsogbui, both of whom are staff at the television station.

A session with some of Ghana’s promising youth

The guests, Jesse Akosa, a business development officer and trained data and financial analyst, Rita Nana Adwoa Arthur, a writer, poet, and filmmaker, Nana Akua Asante Afful, an artisan and second runner-up at the 2017 Ghana’s Most Beautiful, shared their opinions on a variety of themes, including but not limited to the changes they observed in their respective industries ten years ago as compared to the changes they hope to see in the next ten years, as host, Fiona Achieng remarked, “Ghanaian food is a work of art,” in addition to what they celebrate about Africa.

The team from Dominion Television went out into Accra’s streets in anticipation of the great event, Boma of Africa 2022, to find out what people’s opinions were. As they discussed why they believed corruption should be tackled at the festival, they praised the Boma of Africa as a fantastic event.

Boma of Africa; The festival of Ideas

The Boma’s first section was devoted to the establishment of a continental digital trading corridor to assist in the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement through terminal emulator interoperability systems across traditions of the AU Member States, a digital ecosystem of connected e-government and private apps, and a single online business repository and a social credit system for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and startups, as the Hub was launched by the President of Niger and AfCFTA Champion, H.E. Mahamadou Issifou.

Following a spoken word, Cynthia Gnassingbe-Essonam, Senior Advisor at the AfCFTA, gave the opening comments at the Boma of Africa, and Wamkele Mene gave the keynote address. More information on the AfCFTA’s role in integrating the African market was provided by H.E. Wamkele Mene, who also noted that the AfCFTA’s launch had advanced since the previous Boma with the help of the Afreximbank.

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA)

  • Based on the number of participating nations, the AfCFTA is the largest free trade area in the world since the World Trade Organization was established.
  • Among its many goals is the creation of an internal market for products and services, which has the potential to raise intra-African trade by 52.3%.
  • It intends to bring together all 55 African Union member states, spanning a population of more than 1.3 billion people with a developing middle class and a total gross domestic product of $3.4 trillion.

In keeping with previous Boma tradition, part two of the gathering included several dignitaries, including Heads of State, continental businessmen, and world thinkers, who discussed important topics affecting Africa’s long-term plan for structural transformation.

The discussion topics covered creative solutions to Africa’s current financial and supply chain issues, youth and gender empowerment, and the potential for cross-border trade and new technology to be resilient in the face of pandemics and resurgent major power rivalries.

The event’s peak occurred during its third segment. With assistance from international partners like the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Kingdom, Australia, The Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), The United States of America, the European Union, the Government of India, Singapore, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Africa CDC launched a continental eHealth backbone that brought together African Union departments and agencies, as well as its African Vaccine Passport module.

As part of their promotional relationship, the African Union and AfroChampions were in charge of organizing The Boma of Africa. The AfCFTA Hub Network and the continent’s business community were also sponsors.

“Dominion TV partnered with AfroChampions to broadcast this exciting event live on Dominion TV; Africa’s Christian Lifestyle Network for Inspired and Empowered Living. We believe such content will inspire our audience towards living a more empowered life and positively impacting their communities” – Nosisa Doe, General Manager, Dominion TV Ghana

107-Year-Old Massacre Survivor Unveils Secret Weapon

In a world where holding onto unforgiveness and bitterness comes easily, 107-year-old Viola Fletcher, a survivor of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre reminds us, through her vibrant energy, that forgiveness sets the soul free.

107-Year-Old- Viola Fletcher is an American Centenarian who is also one of the three living survivors of the Tulsa Massacre which took place in Greenwood, Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S, in 1921. Mother Fletcher was only 7 years old at the time of the massacre.

The Tulsa Massacre, also known as the Tulsa riot, is considered one of the worst incidents of racial violence in American history. Attackers burned and destroyed what was one of the wealthiest black communities in the U.S.

According to the National Endowment for Humanity, “Tulsans tried to forget what happened, but it’s much harder for the residents of Greenwood. For Black people, Greenwood is a reminder of the need to stay vigilant”

Mother Fletcher had a candid conversation with our President Rosa Whitaker on the same during an interview at Dominion Television in Ghana.

Dominion Television congratulates Mother Fletcher on being one of the 3 living survivors of the Tulsa massacre who received a shared $1 million from a New York non-profit organization ‘Business for Good’ through its Co-Founder, Ed Mitzen.
