Disability insurance, marriage insurance and more come up as Ghanaian celebrities meet with National Insurance Commission

From disability insurance to marriage insurance, Ghanaian celebrities wanted to know all about insurance when a group of  stars from the arts, entertainment, sports, and social media met the Commissioner of Insurance, Dr. Justice Ofori in Accra.

Watch highlights from the meeting below:

The commission organised a workshop on the Principles of Insurance for  the celebrities. One of the key outcomes from the workshop was the participants suggesting that since they use parts of their bodies in performing their arts,  there was the need to protect those body parts. For instance a singer or rapper needs an insurance to protect his or her voice; and a footballer  needs to protect his or her feet or legs. Some others also interestingly called for the design of insurance protection against marriage breakdown.

In his response, the Commissioner of Insurance, Dr Justice Ofori who hosted them at the Head Office of the NIC in Accra, hinted that there are policies available on the Ghanaian insurance market that are tailored for these unforeseen mishaps embedded in Disability Insurances.

“The definition of disability may vary depending on the part of the body that earns the Celebrity regular income. For instance, a footballer whose source of income is playing football can be described under the disability policy as incapable of playing football once he can no longer (temporarily or permanently) be able to earn an income as a result of a bad injury.

“Similarly, a singer could be described as incapable of singing if he or she loses the voice. All of these can be defined variously under the disability insurance”, Dr Ofori disclosed. Some participants made reference to a famous Ghanaian actor who has lost his voice over the years and the effects this is having on his career.

They were excited by Dr Ofori’s disclosure that these policies are available on the Ghanaian market and that insurance companies should be more proactive in approaching them.

The celebrities who attended the workshop included David Dontoh, Gyedu-Blay Ambulley, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Abeiku Santana, Zionfelix, Okyeame Kwame, Jackeline Mensah, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, Rosemond Brown (Akuapem Poloo), Yvonne Nelson, Cece Twum, Ohemaa Mercy and Habiba Sinare. Others were Ameyaw Debrah, Benedicta Gafah and Rabby Blay.

George Quaye (Aboagye), Quame Eugene, GhKwaku, Vicky Zugah, Winston Martin, Bosom Pyung, Nana Asaase, Ishew Stephen Tetteh Charway among others also attended the workshop.

Some event organisers from Charterhouse also sought to know the types of insurance policies that will be ideal for them to which the Commissioner immediately indicated that, on top of their priority list should be public liability insurance which will serve their purpose.

The NIC is Ghana’s insurance industry regulator and has over the past few years been engaging personalities in all working categories to have a fair understanding and appreciation of insurance as a risk-mitigating mechanism.

The online gaming and esports industry has boomed in recent years, with millions of individuals taking part in these games worldwide.

With such explosive growth, there have consequently been a number of substantial prize purses, made all the more fascinating due to their sheer magnitude. Similarly, staggering winnings are sometimes seen by online gamblers, too. For example,’BetMGM Awards Over $800K’ was recently in the news in one lucky US state.

While we can’t tell you how to get lucky when gambling or gaming online, we are going to show you some of the biggest wins from online gaming. 

How do Gamers Win Money? 

Below, we’re going to show you how gamers have made money by winning some of the most prestigious online gaming tournaments in the world. But, there are other ways these professional gamers make money

 

Some have paid sponsorships and partnerships with gaming companies, computer brands, and even global giant drinks manufacturers like Red Bull and Mountain Dew. 

 

Others are paid salaries from the teams or leagues they belong to – it really is just like any other sport in this regard. 

1. Fortnite World Cup (2019) – $30.4 million

It’s no secret that Fortnite is one of the most popular video games in the world right now, and the first-ever Fortnite World Cup is also one of the highest-ever online gaming wins.

In 2019, over $30 million was awarded to the winning players – the winning solo player, Kyle Giersdorf, took home $3 million, while David W and Emil Pedersen split $3 million between them as the top-ranking duo. 

 

Winning contests isn’t the only way players earn from Fortnite, though. It also has a huge following on Twitch, with many gamers making a decent amount of money from live-streaming their gameplay to their adoring fans. 

 

Fans have to pay to subscribe to their favorite channels, and there are often different tiers available for those who wish to show more support. So, for someone streaming a popular game such as Fortnite, this is a great way to make a steady income. 

2. Honor of Kings World Championship Cup (2021) – $7.7 million

Last year’s Honor of Kings tournament, the World Championship Cup, was hosted in Beijing. Twelve teams of the best Honor of Kings players entered the contest, with the winning team ultimately taking home a cool $7.7 million between them. 

 

The battle was closely fought between two teams, Gank Gaming and QG Happy, with the latter eventually coming in the number-one spot and claiming the colossal prize. 

 

The tournament is going to be even bigger in 2022, with a prize pool of $10 million for the winning team. It’s expected that 16 teams will take part in this year’s event. 

3. Call of Duty League Championship (2020) – $4.6 million

Call of Duty has been popular for almost two decades – fans were playing the series long before online gaming and esports became big. But, it’s only more recently that players have been able to make considerable sums of money from playing their favorite first-person shooter. 

 

Call of Duty is so popular it’s not just one event but an entire league dedicated to it! At the end of the League, Dallas Empire won the Championship event and netted themselves the tidy sum of $1.5 million. 

 

4. The International 10 (2020) – $40 million 

Dota 2’s annual championship event in 2020 was the biggest of its kind to date, and one of the biggest ever online gaming wins ever. With a total prize fund of $40 million, it’s no surprise that the 16 teams who entered fought so fiercely to emerge victorious. 

 

After various rounds and stages, Team Spirit from Russia netted themselves over $18 million to share between them. The tournament was held in Bucharest, Romania, at the Arena Naţională. 

Final Thoughts

Aren’t esports exciting? It’s one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, and it has only just begun to hit its stride. So, expect the prize funds given out at these tournaments to grow year on year. 

 

If you keep practicing your favorite game, maybe you too could one day join the likes of these players and teams above and become a multi-millionaire overnight.
