It appears that the Facebook account of controversial musician and comedian A Plus has been taken down. A-Plus was included in tribal arguments with some Facebook users, saying Ewes are jealous of Akans. He wrote: “When I post something on Facebook, 90 percent of the people who come to insult me instead of disagreeing or sharing their opinion have Ewe names. Are people using Ewe name to misbehave on Facebook? Is there an increase in the kind of Ewes people, who believed it when Rawlings gave them the impression that Ewes and Akans are enemies even though he was married to an Ashanti and named his daughter after the greatest Ashanti queen, Yaa Asanyewaa? Or they are just no being brought up well?” Perhaps the comment got people reporting him on Facebook, which has seen his account being inactive at the moment. Facebook recently updated its policies and community guidelines on contents regarding nudity, hate speech, self-harm, dangerous organisations, bullying and harassment, sexual violence and exploitation, criminal activity, violence and graphic. Facebook’s definition of hate speech, for example, covers content that directly attacks people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender or gender identity, or serious disabilities or diseases.

“We are excited to host this inaugural cocktail event as this year marks our 10th anniversary and over 178 years globally.

Nickie Akorsa, the Consular-General of the Chamber, spoke of innovation, sustainability, and gender equality as the main strengths of Sweden and the fact that there’s room for collaboration on those fronts.
The eventful night ended with Emma Ocansey, the Head of Distribution at Old Mutual, reiterating the business’ number one position within the corporate space in the insurance industry and going on to mention big corporate guns like Asanko, Ecobank, Fidelity, and many others as active clients.
“We have very unique and tailored solutions that suit your companies as well as your employees to enable them to provide the utmost value needed for growth as you give them the peace of mind to commit to your business,” she added.
The Ghana-Sweden Chamber of Commerce is committed to promoting commercial, economic, educational, and cultural relations between Ghana and Sweden.

Old Mutual Ghana believes that engaging in partnerships that position Ghana positively is key and considers the collaboration with the chamber relevant. With the 10-year celebration underway, the business encourages the general public to look out for more innovative initiatives in the coming months.
