Ghanaian TV personality, Ama K Abebrese is definitely having a good year. After snatching the lead role in ‘Sinking Sands’, the most anticipated Ghanaian film of the year, and winning a Ghanaian UK Based Achievement (GUBA) Best Television Personality in the UK, Ama has been announced as the Head of Own Productions at Viasat 1.

According to a press statement, the move is directed towards Viasat 1’s drive to become the number one television station in Ghana. Ama K. Abebrese replaces Ivan Todorov, who is returning to Bulgaria after overseeing the launch of the company’s Own Productions in August 2010.

Ama K. Abebrese has been part of the team that played pivotal roles in launching the channel’s three Own Productions namely; The One Show, Laugh a Minute and the UEFA Champions League Studio Discussions. Her vast experience in a more matured television market in the United Kingdom coupled with her Ghanaian heritage would drive the channel’s ‘think global, act local’ agenda in their Own Productions.

At a farewell party held in honor of Mr. Todorov, CEO of Viasat 1 Rune Skogeng lauded him for his tenacity and persistence in getting the Own Productions and Studios running. He said the nine months that Mr. Todorov had been with Viasat 1 he has been nothing short of a force to reckon with and has left a positive legacy. He added that he appreciated the quality of recruits Mr. Todorov brought into the department as they have shown dedication to the tenets of the company.

A very emotional Todorov praised CEO Rune Skogeng for encouraging a creativity- oriented mindset in the Viasat 1 Ghana team, which impacted positively on the Own Productions team. He firmly believes that Viasat 1 Ghana will be the number one entertainer country wide sooner than projected.

Ms Ama K. Abebrese said she is grateful for the opportunity given her and is poised to further strengthen the Viasat 1 brand via more quality own productions into the Ghanaian television market.

Ama K. Abebrese has over a decade of experience in television with experience working with the YCTV (Youth Culture Television), BBC2 and OBE TV in the United Kingdom. An accomplished television producer Ama K’s co-producing credits include Fresh Act, a reality television show format that sought to find actors and actresses for a TV drama, the first of its kind to be produced on a UK Minority ethnic TV channel. She produced and presented a six part series filmed on location in Johannesburg called South Africa Business Profile. She was also a producer on long standing shows – One Touch and On the Sofa. She holds a BA in Media Arts and Drama obtained from St Mary’s University College, Surrey.

Atongo Zimba is set to release the visuals for ‘Akwantuo (feat. Yaw Donkor & Awurama Agyapong)

Published

on

Ahead of his long-awaited album, Atongo Zimba brings us up to speed on his experience of travelling between continents. After taking a step back from a prolific career touring the world, Atongo reflects on going back to Ghana and people’s expectations of the returning star – the pressure and bittersweet price of success.

“When you travel and work hard then go back home, people want big things from you. It becomes like a trouble”

Atongo Zimba

The video for ‘Akwantuo’ (meaning ‘Journey’ in Twi) follows Atongo from Accra to Brighton and back again, lead by his melodic kologo and a laid-back groove underpinning the storytellers’ voice. Directed by the visionary self-shooter Baffour E’mage, the video is an insiders eye to life in Accra through almost documentary-like scenes of music, people, food, nature, city life and travelling.

Featuring the bright new talent of soul diva Awurama Agyapong and a rapper with serious flow, Yaw Donkor, ‘Akwantuo’ takes us on a shared journey, wherever the destination may be.

‘Akwantuo’ is available exclusively on Apple Music from this week and the full album will be released via Jinn Records on all digital platforms on Friday 8th October. We’d love to hear from you! Please do get in touch for more information, interviews, features, or just to say hi.

UPNMG Refutes Malicious Claims Made Against Its Leadership

Published

on

The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana (UPNMG) has
refuted some malicious claims made against the association’s
leadership.

This comes after a wrier on Opera News with the name OBENFOBRIGHT, who
claimed to be a former member of the UPNMG and amongst many other
things, alleged that the Union doesn’t assist its members who fall
sick.

However, in a statement, the leadership of the UPNMG vehemently
refuted the claims, describing them as malicious.

“We want to state emphatically that, the faceless individual who could
not reveal his identity has never been a member of the UPNMG and
obviously knows nothing about the activities of the union but is
rather on a fruitless mission to destroy the hard-earned reputation
built by the organization over the years to satisfy his pay masters,”
a section of the statement said.

Meanwhile, the UPNMG went ahead to outline some of the intervention
schemes it has rolled out for its members.

“The Union of Professional Nurses and Midwives Ghana is the first
trade Union within our noble profession to have instituted a loan
scheme for members and this loan is running at 11%.

“Anyone who speaks ill of this initiative must definitely beconsidered
an enemy of the profession because this has been a life-saving policy
that has helped thousands of Nurses and Midwives across this country.
Interestingly, they are now saying the interest rate is high when they
initially said it wasn’t even possible to run such a scheme for
members less than a year ago.

The statement added: “Apart from the loan scheme, the Union is again
the first to commence a hire purchase for members and that has been
running since its inception in May 2020. Again, we can boast of being
the first ever union within our profession to insure all our members
at no extra cost. That means no members pay any extra money for this
insurance policy.

“The union behind these malicious claims has been in existence for the
past 60 years and has done nothing for nurses and midwives. Our
presence has since kept the kitchen boiling and has made life very
uncomfortable for them, and hence these calculated attempts to dirty
the name of the union.”
