A Journey with Ghana Music Awards hosts – Who hosts the 2013 VGMA?

Kwami Sefa Kayi receiving the framed cover from clementHis bald head would more often than not shine in confirmation to the presence of the 800 watts lights from the railings above. He would walk majestically with a commendable aura of confidence in his nicely cut African print worn over a pair of African crafted sandals.  Among his first few words you are sure to hear, “…if you know the one seated by you should not be there or the message you left at home didn’t say you were coming here, then reconsider cuz we are live on GTV…”. That was the chairman general, Kwami Sefa Kayi. Host of the GMA’s from 1999 – 2007. In 2008, organizers of Ghana’s biggest and by far the most prestigious entertainment event, yielding to the yelps of entertainment writers, patrons and other pundits to give others a chance, moved on. It was a shock to many; the same people that more or less advocated for a fresh face. Mobo Award Winner Samini and Radio diva Doreen Andoh stepped up to the big stage to the surprise of many and raised a lot of eye brows, though their performance was quite commendable. In 2009, it was an all musical affair as current Musiga President, Bice Osei Kufuor, aka Obour,  was chosen together with fellow musicians, Samini and UK Entertainment personality  Dentaa to host the show. It was the first edition held at the dome and though they had a remarkable act ending with a performance of Samini’s ‘where my baby dey…?” GH critics did not fail to outline all their negatives. Then came 2010. The year of the finest. By this time, Charterhouse was tired of all the reproach as far hosting the Ghana Music Awards was concerned. They searched high and low and found none other than a man with a reputable profile as a master communicator and MC both locally and internationally. From the finest PR, Kwesi Kyei Darkwa, KKD was engaged to host the event. Arriving at the dome in a convertible jaguar flanked by two adorable models and rapping to his song specially produced for the event, KKD to put it bluntly delivered to the satisfaction of many. But again, the critics with the pens and microphones did not fail to drub his blunders. But for the clichéd and banal jokes of talented actor, MC and TV host, Chris Attoh, the 2011 combination of the gentleman and queen of the airwaves, Doreen Andoh could have been impeccable. Regardless of how great they did, some Ghanaians appeared to have missed Kwami Sefa Kayi and the calls became apparent. Could it be his humour? Maybe. In 2011 therefore, Charterhouse, thinking the need was for an originally humorous character on the set brought back Chris Attoh and introduced Ghana’s funniest comedian of the time, Benson Ohene Boateng, aka, Funny Face. The duo, many have said did a great job with a few pundits of course not failing to indicate their falls. So who hosts the event next? Come Saturday 18th May 2013 when patrons arrive at the Accra International all dolled up and ready for that exclusive 5 star event, who will man the mic? Few names from the grapevine allude to one or maybe two of the following: Actor Majid Mitchel,  Queen of the airwaves, Doreen Andoh, Musician and Big brother housemate, Mildred Ashong, aka Eazzy, Musician, Becca from EKB productions, actresses Naa Ashorkor, Jocelyn Dumas and Yvonne Okoro, Funny Face and finally, ace radio and television host, KOD who has been on the VGMA red carpet for years. Who will host the 14th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards? We don’t know yet, but I’m sure the critics already have their pens and microphones ready for whoever it will be. We just look forward to a great show. The 14th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is powered to the next level by Charterhouse, Star Beer, Gh One, Channel O and brought to you by Vodafone.]]>

The premiere of the most anticipated Ghanaian crime action thriller; The Agency, postponed to December 2

Published

The Agency3

We wish to officially announce that Ghana’s most anticipated crime action thriller, The Agency, initially scheduled to premiere on October 1, 2022, has been postponed to December 2, 2022.

This difficult decision became necessary due to some challenges, including a planned renovation by Silverbird Cinemas, commencing two days after the premiere of The Agency movie and lasting about a week. Meaning that subsequent showings of The Agency in the cinema would have to be suspended for the entire duration of the renovation. From a business perspective, this is not prudent as a break in screening would water down the impact we anticipate audience reviews after the premiere will make, while potentially affecting revenue as well. Hence, the need to postpone to a more suitable date.

In considering suitable dates, we had to ensure that the new date was not set too close to or on the same day as any major local or international event and or movie releases. This is also important because it can adversely affect our premiere. After extensive consultations and careful consideration, it became clear that The Agency should premiere in December.

Coincidentally, the National Film Authority called on Cine-God Studios to discuss the Ghana Cinema Week slated for December 2022. The ten (10) day event seeks to revive the Ghanaian cinema culture by encouraging Ghanaians to watch Ghanaian films at various venues across the country. By supporting and participating in this initiative, we get a golden opportunity to access more screens; which means we get to bring the The Agency movie closer to more film lovers across Ghana faster than we initially scheduled.

In all, we believe that this postponement provides an opportunity for us to entertain film lovers without compromising on returns for our investor; a win-win situation.

The Agency is a crime-action thriller movie which tells the story of a very powerful government security agency, which was formed to handle the government’s top-secret operations but which gets corrupted under the leadership of a highly connected female government appointee who uses the agency for back-door business dealings, hence, causing the emergence of a group of highly skilled individuals to embark on a self-sanctioned perilous mission to end the corruption and abuse. It was Executive produced by Amin Ramart and directed by Abu Iddris.

We therefore take the opportunity to apologize for any inconveniences caused and encourage the public to turn out in their numbers on December 2, 2022 for the premiere at Silverbird Cinemas (Accra Mall and West Hills mall) and subsequent showings at venues near them.
