2011 African Movie Academy Awards nominated movie, ‘Achor Baby’ made its Ghanaian debut at the Silverbird cinema last weekend and continues to show for two more weeks.  The very well crafted movie tells the story of how illegal immigrants are exploited on daily basis in their quest to gain legal recognition, dwelling on several themes such as love, betrayal, ambition, desperation and survival.

Anchor Baby is a must-see movie that tells the story of Nigerian couple Paul Unanga (played by British born Ghanaian actor Sam Sarpong) and Joyce Unanga (played by Nollywood actress Omoni Oboli), living in the US with an expired visa. Three months after refusing to take up immigration’s voluntarily departure to Nigeria, they are forced into hiding from the law. Joyce is ready to leave the country as soon as possible but Paul wants to stay and have their ‘Anchor Baby’ in the States.  He managed to convince Joyce who was 5 months pregnant that, they will leave to Nigeria after she has given birth in America which guarantee automatic U.S. citizenship to their son Uche (God’s will).

Paul’s dream is to give his unborn child the opportunity to grab the American Dream, but at what cost? During a swoop by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Pau is arrested and consequently deported back to Nigeria. Now pregnant Joyce has to fend for herself and the unborn baby. She can’t access health care because she has no work permit. She has no ID, all she has is her green passport.

Joyce meets Susan Backley (played by Terri Oliver), a freelance writer who is struggling to have a baby for her husband. Susan and her husband are more than willing to offer their basement to Joyce but at what cost? Will Paul’s dream for his ‘Anchor Baby’ come into fruition?

Anchor Baby won the Best Film at the Harlem International Film Festival with Omoni Oboli winning the Best Actress at the same event. It also won the Award of Merit Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood.

Kira Forex: The Ghanaian woman setting the pace in the Forex Trading business

Published

on

The advent of new media and digital money-making platforms has provided a plethora of opportunities for people to earn money and transform their life stories through legitimately acquired wealth and affluence.

One such life-changing and lucrative opportunity presented by new media is the forex trading business, which has surged in the past decade, leading to the creation of millions of new millionaires and billionaires worldwide.

Forex Trading is essentially the art of studying the global currency market and leveraging information about currency rates to buy and exchange currencies on a forex marketing platform.

The popularity of Forex Trading has soared in the country over the past half-decade, with several Ghanaians studying currency trends and making significant financial gains from it. However, only one name stands out in the business.

Amid the growing interest in the Forex Trading business in the country, only one name has emerged as the pioneer and pacesetter: Lamidi Sikira, better known by her brand name, “Kira Forex.”

Just as Yaa Asantewaa is synonymous with feminine bravery in Ghana, Kira Forex has become the prime face of Ghanaian and African excellence in the forex trading business.

With over ten years of experience, Kira Forex has rightfully earned the reputation of a forex trading luminary, with several awards in Ghana and across the continent validating her position as one of Africa’s leading forex traders.

Her success in the field is so profound that she revealed in 2023 that she turned down a $20,000-a-month job to continue leading the pack in the forex trading industry.

A trait of Kira Forex that endears her to many Ghanaians is her selflessness and willingness to guide others, particularly Ghanaian women, out of poverty. Having established herself in the field, Kira Forex founded the Kira Forex Academy with the goal of enlightening Ghanaians, especially women, about the forex trading industry, enabling them to earn money from the comfort of their homes.

A staunch advocate for the independence and growth of women, Kira Forex believes that financial freedom is the most crucial condition for independence and is thus leading many Ghanaian women on the path to financial freedom and wealth.

She also established the Kira Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization committed to enlightening, enriching, and empowering individuals in Ghana and across Africa. Through this foundation, she actively supports programs and social causes aimed at improving the lives of youths and the elderly, exemplifying her commitment to serving humanity.

Her outstanding work as a Forex Trader and philanthropist has earned her several awards, including Most Influential Trader and Best Forex Trader in Singapore, Outstanding Service Award in Nigeria, Africa’s Under 40 CEOs Award in Uganda, and Best Female Forex Trader of the Year in South Africa, among others.
