Accra Fashion Week 2020 postponed due to Coronavirus outbreak

postponed

FashionGHANA.com confirms that the Chilly Rainy edition of Accra Fashion Week 2020 set for March 26th-30th, will be canceled. All expected runway activities and participating designers will be postponed until October 1st-5th, 2020 where we can promise an even more explosive show.

The reasons being is due to the Corona Virus epidemic. Although we are fully aware that Ghana at the moment is safe from the Corona Virus, we do not believe now will not be the best time to execute the event that hosts such a large attendance of international guests. Accra Fashion Week today stands as a grand key event in tourism for Ghana, with over a 100 foreign participants including guests from all over the world consistently in attendance.

The event, at times hosting upto 30 countries on the runway in Ghana, something that isn’t been done anywhere else. This year we were scheduled to host 16 foreign countries on the runway. Unfortunately 6 have pulled out due to uncontrollable circumstances in their home country, and a good number of the remaining designers from abroad are in fear to travel.

As Africa’s most popular fashion event, we believe it is our role to take full responsibility in consideration of our participants, guests and the nation as a whole to embrace safety first. It will be of much regret to FashionGHANA.com and a damaging cause to the Accra Fashion Week brand if the event is to play any role in the contribution towards the spread of the Corona Virus, especially in Accra, Ghana. The decision was concluded after much discussions with the remaining participating designers, of which all decided postponing the showcase to October was preferable.

With the exclusion of the major runway shows that includes both the local and foreign designers, FashionGHANA.com will still host a fashion get-together scheduled on the Saturday 28th of March 2020. Details will soon be published on the website schedule page. We are gratefully sorry for any inconvenience cause to any of our audience and followers, especially foreign guests whom have already booked flights and hope the wait will be worth while. And most of all we would like to thank our sponsors Kimimi, Hyundai, Pulse, 2nd Image and Confidence Models for their understanding and patience.

The annual New Year Comedy Night will kick off the 2023 event calendar in January. To start the new year, the event will return with even funnier and rib-cracking jokes.

Slated for January 2, 2023 at the La Palm Royal Hotel. Ahead of the show, Comedian and Headliner for the event, DKB has sent a message to the Ghana Football Association President; Mr Kurt Okraku.

The comedian won’t hold back when discussing the Ghana Black Stars and their recently concluded World Cup campaign. DKB asserts that he is prepared to appear in court because on January 2nd, he will roast the President, despite the GFA having warned that people would be prosecuted if they disparaged the GFA and The Black Stars.

“We will roast him [Kurt Okraku] come Monday January 2 2023 at the New Year Comedy Night event. On the night we [Comedians] will dive into all that happened in 2022 which fortunately Kurt Okraku and the Black Stars actively participated in.” He said.

“Yes I am aware of the letter that was published by the GFA, but it wouldn’t intimidate us into cowering and not speak about GFA and The Black Stars. We are ready to go to court because we will roast Him [Kurt Okraku].” He added.

There will be great performances by OB Amponsah, Lekzy DeComic, Foster Romanus, Jeneral Ntatia, Parrot Mouth, Putogo, and MjTheComedian with music from Sista Afia and Cina Soul. The show will be hosted by Kejetia Lawyer Nti.

They say I do money laundering – Mercy Eke of BBNaija

They say I do money laundering - Mercy Eke of BBNaija

Reality Star, Mercy Eke sits with Chude Jideonwo, host of the viral TV show, #WithChude to discuss accusations the media peddle against her and life after Big Brother Naija.

On her choice to respond to the blogger who claimed she slept with IVD, she shared, “This blogger has been on my case since forever. This person has tarnished my image more than anything, and I have never responded. This started when I was in the house. When this whole thing started, I saw that one of my fans released something where this blogger asked for 200,000 naira, and they did not give the person. And the blogger vowed that he or she will deal with me. But now, I am not in the house, you can’t deal with me based on whoever was handling my page. I didn’t even know about it because, they cleaned it up. When they handed over my phone to me, I didn’t see a lot of things, so I couldn’t pay for what I did not know. And since then, I have not rested. There is no story that this blogger has not involved me, till that one, I won’t respond. But this one, someone just died, there is a case of domestic violence, and I know this woman, we are friends. Then something that I know nothing about, you just brought my name out of nowhere and say that I am sleeping with this person”.
“That is the first and last time, I am going to respond to something, but I needed to respond to that one, she added.
Mercy also shared her thoughts about Phyna being the second woman to win the reality TV show.

“Honestly speaking, I have been waiting on someone to take on that role, let that pressure move, I want to rest. I want another person to come and take it, let the blogs focus on this person. Because I know when someone comes, at least I will rest.

She also reacted to the stigma successful women have to deal with, “It is very offensive. I feel that it is taking away all the efforts, the sleepless night, all the hard work we women put to get together where we are. They will just take away all effort and tag it as someone is behind you. I am not saying it is bad to have someone behind, if you have a rich boyfriend, some people’s love language might be taking care of you, buying you nice things, and giving you money. However, you will still work hard. They said I do money laundering; they have dealt with me in this industry. I came into this industry without no advice, just myself and my team and I started building brand.

On her motivation to be in the Big Brother house, she shared, “I auditioned four times. I just have that voice in me that says, ‘this is where you will make it’. So, each year when they say, ‘‘try again next year’. I still have that thing in my head that, ‘Okay, I will try’. Back then it was just to be famous”.
