2011 Year in Review!

Published

on

happy new year vertYes another year has come and gone and as we close the chapter on 2011, I bring you highlights of the year. Without a doubt, the biggest highlight of 2011 was the dance craze known as Azonto that had everyone taking notice, from the church to the streets and into the nightclubs. The phenomenon did not only merit and entry into Wikipedia but also had stars like Amber Rose doing it or at least trying it. Sarkodie, one of the artists that helped in making the dance very popular, was also seen showing some top UK acts such as Chipmunk and Wretch 32 how to do the azonto. Still on Sarkodie, 2011 was the year that the rapper proved his staying power, returning after his award-winning hit 2009 debut album. With his song, ‘You Go Kill Me’ featuring E.L being one of the biggest hits of the year, he followed it with one of the biggest love songs of the year, ‘I’m in Love with U’ featuring Efya to show Ghanaians that indeed he is a versatile rapper. Versatility or not, it seems Ghanaians have accepted Sarkodie and anything he touches becomes a hit. No wonder, when he decided to launch his second album, ‘Rapperholic’ on Christmas day with a music concert at The Dome, it was sold out! 2011 was generally a good year for the Tema rappers and among some of the biggest acts of the year were Stay Jay, Dr Cryme, Keche, and R2bees. Other acts that had a good year were VIP, who won the Ghana Music Award for Artist of the Year; Castro, who was everywhere and on every song; and 4×4 among others. It was also a good year for rapper and producer E.L as he made his biggest impact on the music scene yet! Although he may not have had a huge hit as a solo artist in the year, he produced some of the most loved azonto songs of the year. Singer, Raquel also had a good year and Efya continued to share his vocal genius with the rest of us. On the highlife front, my favourite song was ‘2 Sure’ by Quabena Benji featuring Guru and Kofi B but for some strange reasons, the rest of Ghana didn’t see much of him and his song. Appietus also managed to produce a song for Ofori Amponsah that may bubble into 2012 and mark a comeback for the singer. Among the big headlines of the year was the rape allegation against rapper, Asem which many believe resulted in his exit from Lynx Entertainment label. He came back with the ‘Last Song’ to wrap up on events in 2011 just like he did with ‘2010 Fyla’ in the previous year but it didn’t have the impact that he expected.  Who can forget the news about Mzbel slapping a police officer and spending some time in the cells? What about when she was taken to court and her case had to be adjourned due to a missing docket? Hmm, I have started watching my wits around her since these incidents. How about the nude pictures of rapper Tiffany that leaked following a failed blackmail attempt by some Nigerians? 2011 was surely eventful. Also in the news were the never-ending reports about Yvonne Nelson, Ekow Smith Asante and Kofi Adjorlolo’s ban from acting, and yes only in Ghana! CEO of Aphrodisiac Nightclub, Confidence Haugen represented Ghana in the Big Brother Amplified reality TV series produced by M-net. She was joined by an unknown Alex Biney, who is now seen at most events holding his own bottle of alcohol and a glass in hand – is that the new swag? Miss Ghana 2010, Stephanie Karikari won Beauty with a Purpose at Miss World, following widespread disapprovals over her crowing as Miss Ghana. Will Miss Malaika 2011, Geraldine Partington have a similar opportunity to prove those who think she didn’t deserve her crown (including me) wrong? Let’s wait and see how she tackles the projects she has chosen to work on, with her beauty. 2011 also saw an end to the 11 year old relationship between the Ghana Music Awards and Telecom Company MTN as the title sponsor for the event, as rivals Vodafone took over the sponsorship for the awards. Analysts are waiting to see how this development would impact on the next award ceremony in 2012. Still on Vodafone, the telecom giants launched the Icons: Divas Edition reality TV series to find Ghana’s biggest girl group. RnM emerged winners and even before their journey into becoming a girl group could take off, there is news that group leader, Denise has left the group. Though, no official communication has been made to that effect, RnM has been performing as a duo and not a trio in recent times.   In event news, 2011 saw several good shows with a few misses here and there. Fellow entertainment critic Francis Doku organized the Most Popular Entertainer of Ghana (MPEG) to award personalities who have distinguished themselves in the field of sports, music, film, radio, TV, comedy and stage. The likes of Agya Koo, Asamoah Gyan, Funny Face and others were honoured; and the public voted for Asamoah Gyan as the Entertainer of the Year. Some of my most memorable events include Famous 5, Ghana Meets Naija, and Legends and Legacy Ball –  which did not only see several artist singing Daddy Lumba songs to honour him, but also saw former presidents Rawlings and Kufuor dancing with Nana Konadu Agyamang Rawlings. After three versions of the 4syte Music Video Awards, I am yet to be impressed with the awards.  This year’s event was one of my least favourite events of the year! In movie news we saw Ghana’s first two-cast movie in ‘Why Wed?’, and Shirley Frimpong-Manso launched her 10-Chapter movie series, ‘Adams’ Apples’. ‘Destiny of Lesser Animals’ also showed for a brief period in Ghana and I liked what I saw. But my favourite movie was ‘Ties That Bind’ and judging by the random response I received from the grand premiere recently; my previous review of the movie was quite accurate. If you saw the movie, then perhaps you would understand why it swept the 2011 Ghana Movie Awards with 9 nods including a Best Actress in a Leading Role for Hollywood sweetheart, Kimberly Elise. ‘Ties That Bind’ star, Ama K may have not been nominated in the Ghana Movie Awards lead actress category but 2011 was good for her as she won the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) for Best Actress, and the Zimbabwe International Film Festival Best Actress for her role in ‘Sinking Sands’. And who would forget the never-ending noise about the four actresses sharing one Ghana Movie Award car prize? 2011 also saw several international acts performing in Ghana including, Fabolous, Red Café, Mario, Trey Songz, Busy Signal, Kiprich and T-Pain. Based on the quality of production, my favourite was T-Pain because he had a good act and the sound was superior on the night. Dancehall star, Mavado was also in Ghana but the concert may not be remembered for his performances but the marijuana that filled the Accra Sports Stadium on the night. Amber Rose hosting Vodafone’s 020 Live concert featuring Trey Songz and DBanj surely put some spotlight on Ghana as many couldn’t understand why the former video vixen was chosen to host the concert. My interview with Amber Rose, in which she explained why she didn’t share pictures of the beauty of Ghana but rather pictures of some poor people she visited, also gained international attention (you should see me grinning right now). Christmas as usual was busy with several activities and in the mist of the excitement, the celebs caught the ‘charity bug’ as those who didn’t do any charity earlier in the year joined in giving back to the society and the needy. During the Christmas season, Jackie Appiah made donations to a rehab for drug and alcohol addicts; Joselyn Dumas made donations to the Korle Bu Hospital; and Confidence Haugen made donations to 4 separate hospitals and children homes.  Earlier in the year, John Dumelo also donated to the Wa Basic School on his birthday, promising to build for the School 5 Classrooms estimated at $40,000. The stars caught more than the ‘charity bug’, they also caught the ‘entrepreneurial bug’ and most of the time it was fashion inclined. Big Brother Africa star turned singer, Mimi launched her Divalish Fashion line, actor Prince David Osei launched his clothing line, and John Dumelo launched his jewelry and hair line, J,Melo. 2011 also saw some sad news as we lost the likes of playwright, Efo Kodjo Mawugbe and actor Gilbert Karikari of the ‘Kejetia’ TV series. But all in all, 2011 was a good year for entertainment in Ghana. Let’s meet same time next year and count down the fun, excitement and misses. Happy New Year and a prosperous 2011 to you all!

Coachella through the eyes of an African

Published

Ameyaw Debrah at Coachella 2022

My second showing at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival confirmed to me the sheer diversity of talent and music that gets showcased each year. But Coachella is more than music and arts, it is a celebration of cultures, the spirit of people, fashion, and more. If you’re a conservative African,  then expect some cultural shocks as the festival doesn’t hold back in celebrating life and accepting it in all of its forms.

The festival embraces queer and intersecting groups, so seeing raunchy and over-the-top costumes from festival-goers is to be expected. Some of the washrooms on the festival grounds are even gender-neutral, so expect to see both women and men queuing up to use the same washroom.  Marijuana has been legal in California for many years, so you should also expect people to smoke at free range; without much care for those who don’t.  If you’re able to look beyond all these as “an African”, then you too can have a swell time at Coachella!

 

After seeing Burna Boy and Mr Eazi perform in 2019, when I had my first experience of Coachella,  I felt proud as an African.  I also noticed how the African festival-goers (from mainly across the United States and the United Kingdom) watched with some pride the performances from Mr Eazi and Burna Boy on the Coachella stage. So when the lineup was announced for 2000 to include Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 and Aya Nakamura, I was happy that Africans were becoming a regular on the festival’s lineup.  Sadly, Covid-19 didn’t let that happen in 2020 and 2021. In fact, I almost entered a $2,000 bet with my colleague blogger, David Mawuli that when the festival returned, there would be a Ghanaian artist on the lineup. Thank goodness I rather spent that money on a bonus hunt online casino. Well, at least I won $120 back!

 

When the lineup was announced for 2022, the only African on the main stages was Black Coffee, while fellow South Africans,  Major League DJZ scheduled for The DoLab tent. So when I attended weekend two of the festival, I made sure to watch Black Coffee’s set. He played on Day 1. Unlike the Burna Boy and Mr Eazi sets, that I witnessed in 2019, the audience at Black Coffee’s set was not predominantly Africans. It was a global audience. The crowd was as thick as it was energetic.  It was also exciting to hear the 2022 Grammy Award Best Dance/ Electronic Album-winner, incorporate remixes of some authentic African rhythms in his set.

On Day 1, I also showed some interest in Pakistani vocalist Arooj Aftab, who won the Grammy this year for Best Global Performance.  A lot of Africans had tipped ‘Essence’ by Wizkid and Tems for that award. So, I had to find out for myself what makes Arooj Aftab tick.

With these two performances of interest out of the way, I stuck to my plan of focusing on big acts that I haven’t seen performing before because, with the grand nature of the festival and the sheer size of the venue, it is simply impossible to experience everything!

 

The Empire Polo Club is a 78-acre polo club, which leases out its polo grounds for the festival. The venue is so huge that festivalgoers walk for several miles before getting into the main entrance to the festival grounds. When accounting for land used for parking and camping, the event covers a footprint of over 600 acres!

 

Across the grounds, several stages continuously host live music. The main stages are the Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and Sahara Tent; in addition to the smaller Yuma stage and Sonora stage. Each stage was unique in appearance and suited for the lineup of artists on it. The big stages had elaborate settings to create various visual aesthetic attributes needed to project the individuality of the artists and make festival-goers enjoy their performances even better.

I missed Ari Lenox’s performance at Afrochella in Ghana this past December so, I had to experience her set especially after all the buzz she generated on social media with her visit to Ghana.  The sultry singer hit the stage, giving fans a look and performance to remember. The D.C. native hit the stage in a jaw-dropping gold ensemble to perform several ‘woke female’  themed songs for her fans.

Anitta proved why she is a sensation in the Latin world and beyond, with her high octane performances. The Brazilian singer changed into three different sexy outfits that accentuated her figure as she rocked them in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

 

Baby Keem, who recently won a Grammy for best rap performance, was one of the up-and-coming hip-hop performers at the festival. One of the highlights from his set was bringing on label boss, Kendrick Lamar, a little over 30 minutes into his set. The rappers, both in all-black ensembles, performed together for the final two songs including “family ties.”

 

I ended Day 1 with Harry Styles who literally brought disco to the desert! One of the biggest highlights from the set of the “As It Was” singer, was bringing Lizzo on stage to perform a song from the One Direction archives.  It was fun to see him perform with so much energy, and he was very interactive with the crowd too.

On Day 2 I kicked things off with a performance from R&B singer, Giveon. I was late in getting to the venue but was happy to at least see him perform his hit song ‘Heartbreak Anniversary’ before he left the stage. I then visited The Do Lab stage for some electrifying DJ mixes and performances.

Grammy-winning rapper, Megan Thee Stallion showed all the hot girls and boys of Coachella how a superstar commands a stage during her hour-long set. She opened her show with “Megan’s Piano” wearing a black and silver spacey one-piece with futuristic glasses on. She and her backup dancers shook everything they had, and the crowd went wild as expected.

Rapper, Isaiah Rashad opened his set with a powerful pre-recorded film acknowledging recent speculation about his sexuality. In a collage of media footage and audio, commentators react to a video of Rashad leaked this year,  showing the rapper being intimate with two men.  He gave fans back-to-back performances of his hit songs amidst cheers and a lot of support.

Billie Eilish Coachella Stage Saturday

When I saw Billie Eelish on the Coachella lineup in 2019 I didn’t know her back then, so I didn’t attend her set, but days after I found out she was the new it-girl and she later went on to sweep the Grammy Awards the following year. So, this time I simply had to experience her, and I did! Her 90-minute set featured songs like “NDA,” “Therefore I Am,” “idontwannabeyouanymore” and “You Should See Me In A Crown.” She had a small accident when she fell onstage while singing “Getting Older.” Later on during her set, Eilish brought along her brother Finneas O’Connell for an acoustic cover of her single “Your Power.”

Day 3

 

On Day 3 I was physically worn out from all the standing and walking, so I didn’t want to do too much. I circled my day around a few acts.  I kicked off with Brixton rapper Dave, whose set was attended by a huge UK crowd that cheered him along throughout his performance!

He recreated his “Alex From Glasto” viral moment from 2019 by picking a fan from the crowd to join him on stage to rap a verse from ‘Thiago Silva,’ his 2016 hit with AJ Tracey.  He also performed his hit song ‘Location’ which features Burna Boy. Dave’s set was one of my favorites!

 

Since I had seen Doja Cat recently at Day N Vegas, I only saw the tail end of her set, as I wanted to go to the Coachella Stage on time to get closer to the headliners Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd. I wasn’t so sure when they were announced as the replacement of Kanye West but seeing them back-to-back made so much sense, and the energy was just what was needed to bring Coachella to an end!

Swedish House Mafia started things off, dropping hit electronic dance music tracks back-to-back, punctuated by fireworks and pyrotechnics.  Their set lasted about 55 minutes. When they played their most popular song, “Don’t You Worry Child,” they dropped the music entirely at the key moment to allow the crowd to sing the chorus in unison.

The Weeknd then rolled through with a crowd-pleasing list of hits, including “The Hills,” “Starboy” and “I Feel It Coming.” He was amazing on the night although his set lacked a lot of the theatrics and stagecraft and special guests.  He closed his set with a slowed-down version of his mega-hit “Save Your Tears.” Then Swedish House Mafia rejoined him and they closed the set, and the 2022 Coachella experience, together with the song “Moth to a Flame.”

Ameyaw Debrah wants to sue Kanye West for pulling out of Coachella, after he spent over $3000 planning his trip

Published

on

1

Ghanaian blogger, Ameyaw Debrah is looking to sue someone over Monday’s news that rapper, Kanye West had pulled out of the upcoming Coachella Music and Arts festival…and Kanye for now is the obvious choice!

According to the blogger, he has spent almost $4,000 in booking flights and a hotel for the two-weekend festival in Indio, California, which runs April 15-17 and April 22-24.  He pointed out the unusually high prices of accommodation in the area due to the festival.

In a video posted on Ameyaw TV, Debrah cited possible mental stress from spending so much money, and not getting what he paid for in the end.  He however hopes the Kanye’s replacement can make up for his troubles.

According to reports from Variety, reps for West and the festival did not immediately respond to requests for comment as to why the rapper pulled out of the festival.

The reason for his cancelation was not immediately clear, although a source tells Variety that he had not rehearsed or prepared for the appearance. While West played a full set, accompanied by Drake, at the Los Angeles Coliseum in December, Coachella is North America’s largest music festival and by necessity runs a very tight operation. West also pulled out of a planned headlining appearance at the 2020 festival — which ultimately was postponed until this year due to the pandemic — mere days before it was announced, sources confirmed to Variety at the time.

Yet there are many other reasons why news does not come as a shock, as West’s unpredictable and combative behavior in recent months put a question mark over his appearance even as it was announced in January; he had been barred from a planned appearance at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards due to what was described as his “concerning online behavior.” West canceled the closing dates of his 2016 “Saint Pablo” tour and was hospitalized for mental-health reasons shortly afterward, following incidents that were similar in ways to his behavior in recent months. West has said many times that he suffers from bipolar disorder.

Coachella’s first two nights will be headlined by Harry Styles and Billie Eilish. The festival essentially hedged its bets on West by billing EDM titans Swedish House Mafia in an unspecified spot on the lineup, listed at the bottom of the official announcement poster, leaving open the option of the group replacing him as Sunday’s headliner in the event he pulled out. With the festival just 11 days away, that seems a likely scenario.

Rumors had been circulating that Travis Scott would be joining West for the performance, but TMZ says that he will not be appearing either. Scott has been keeping a low profile since 10 people died in a rush toward the stage during his headlining performance at his Astroworld festival in Houston in October.

Such an appearance would be on-message for West, who in recent months has been publicly embracing such ostracized celebrities as Marilyn Manson, who is accused of sexual assault, and DaBaby, who has made unapologetically homophobic comments in recent months.

Africans don’t trust each other – my experience with an Ethiopian taxi driver in Las Vegas

Published

on

Ameyaw Debrah at palazzo gondola

My recent trip to Las Vegas, Nevada came with many experiences, as I put myself out there to explore the city a lot more than I did in my previous two visits. My first time in Vegas was for one night only, to attend the Miss Universe finale in 2017.  My second time was for the Day N Vegas festival in 2019, which also brought me back for a third time this year.

On day-two of Day N Vegas, I had an experience that corroborated the belief of many Africans, that we do not trust one another.  Due to Day N Vegas, most of the area around the Las Vegas Festival Grounds was closed to taxis and rideshare apps such as Uber and Lift, which made it very stressful to get a car whenever I closed from the festival and headed to my hotel room. It meant that after walking and standing at the grounds for hours, we had to walk quite a distance to look for cars.

My experience was even made worse when the data on my AT&T phone number kept failing, meaning that after all the stress covering the concerts, I couldn’t use Uber to request for a ride.  On the night of day 2, I discovered that there was a pick-up point for taxis within the Circus Circus Hotel, Casino & Theme Park. Sadly the taxis were not coming in as rapidly as I would have wished for. I was the third in line, but it took over one hour of standing in the queue till I finally got a taxi.

When the taxi came, I got in but when the driver asked for the address I was going to, I couldn’t remember the location of my hotel. I mentioned the name of the hotel, but the driver wasn’t familiar with it and insisted that he couldn’t take me if I didn’t get the address for him. I wasn’t willing to waste the hours of standing and waiting to be turned down by any driver. My internet wasn’t working, and I tried to ask him to use his internet Ito locate the hotel, but he was indifferent. I told him “lets go to downtown and I will know where my hotel is,  because it’s not far from the Fremont Street”.

Finally, he agreed and moved on. Then he started a conversation with me, once he suspected I was from Africa. I told him I was from Ghana when he told me he was Ethiopian. He asked about my visit and thought I was a ‘new rich African’ when I told him I was in town for Day N Vegas.

When, I finally arrived at my hotel I tried to pay with a card. Since it was a metered cab, I could see my fare right in front of me, with a POS device for payment. But I noted it was slightly expensive paying with  a card compared to paying cash, so I told the driver that I would rather pay with cash, after all I am African!

Then surprisingly he asked me how much I would pay him, the meter said $18 so I said I will give him $20 but he screamed “no $25!” I then gave him a $100 note to which he retorted, “are you sure it’s not fake?”.  I said no, laughed it off and collected my change.

Watch my vlog on the experience below:

Interestingly, the following night, I had internet, so I ordered for an Uber ride after the Day N Vegas finale, and again the driver was Ethiopian. This time it was a younger driver and we had an interesting conversation about Africa and the civil war in Ethiopia.

I had noticed that there were a lot of Ethiopians in Vegas. Most of the African restaurants listed on Uber Eats are Ethiopian and most of the drivers were too. When I pointed it out in our conversation, he told me that Vegas has the next biggest concentration of Ethiopians in the USA after the DMV tristate.  I also found out that affluent Ethiopians like to buy Mississauga Real Estate styled homes in the USA.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 68,001 people reported Ethiopian ancestry in 2000. Between 2007 and 2011, there were approximately 151,515 Ethiopia-born residents in the United States. According to Aaron Matteo Terrazas, “if the descendants of Ethiopian-born migrants (the second generation and up) are included, the estimates range upwards of 460,000 in the United States.

Some Ethiopians living in the US enjoy using exquisitely designed Ten Point Crossbow in archery games. Football is the most popular sport in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian national football team called the “Walyia Antelopes” won the 1962 African Cup of nations and in 2013 Ethiopia qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in 31 years.

Other sports played include basketball, volleyball, and tennis. Ethiopia has a tradition of medal-winning runners: Abebe Bikila, Belayneh Dinsamo, and Derartu Tulu. Haile Gebreselassie has set several world records.

Ethiopia has made remarkable progress in education, with primary school net enrolment tripling between 2000 and 2016 to the current 100 per cent.  Although most children enroll in school, many do not complete their education: 85 per cent make it past Grade 5 and 54 per cent past Grade 8. Progress has been enabled through a sustained government-led effort to reduce poverty and expand the public education system equitably. This has been backed by substantial increases in national education expenditure and aid to the sector, as well as improved planning and implementation capacity at all levels. According to Boardingschools.ca, there is a good number of Ethiopians having higher education in Canada.

Ethiopian national identity is grounded in the long history of Christianity and Islam in the region, and independence from foreign rule since antiquity.
