Magdalene Mamle Combarieu’s Biography.
Magdalene Mamle Combarieu’s Biography.

Early Life and Educational Background

Magdalene Mamle Combarieu, better known as Maddy Combarieu was born August 23, 1987. She’s is a Ghanaian by nationality. Her accessible pleasure for fashion has added contrast to her personality as a celebrity stylist, entrepreneur and fashion designer who operates her own company called Fashion Pilot. She inherited and actualized ideas from her mother growing up because she was a textile retailer and designer, hence fashion has been in her DNA even before she honed the skill and passion for the profession.

Magdalene graduated from University College of Management Studies, Ghana where she studied Human Resources. She did a Second Degree (MASTERS) in International Public Relations and Global Communication (with focus in Fashion) in the UK at the renowned Cardiff University, and furthered to Central Saint Martins (London, UK) for Fashion Communication. 

Profession

Her interest had always been fashion however after being born again, her purpose which is now music was revealed to fulfill God’s will for her life on earth and she obeyed to be a loyal servant and messenger for Christ, which she loves even more. As paradoxical as it may sound, she used to be an international strategic fashion stylist but she’s no more into it as she is currently proclaiming Jesus gospel through music. It was a very difficult decision to make because she had a global fashion plan project she was working on with her team of creatives. But she had a call from God, therefore she had to drop it all and pick up his cross and surrender. She spent a duration of 4 years in the fashion industry.

The Book of Ecclesiastes 3:1 says; “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”. In that light, her love and abject submission to God has led her to switch lane on her passion for fashion to follow a different path.  

Her last styling job before she fully committed to letting go, was the set of “African girl” by Fuse ODG, Kidi and Kwame Eugene. While attending her normal duties on set, she was consumed by God’s grace which drove her to sing and pray the whole time during a 3 days shoot.

Family

She’s happily married with 2 adorable kids.

Working Experience

Her love for fashion has given her the permit to travel out of the country for fashion related works. She has been to Jamaica, Sweden and London. Aside that, she has traveled to France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, UK, Tanzania, Nigeria, South Africa, Cotonou, Benin, Togo and USA.

Challenges

It’s unpredictable, one day you think you have it all figured out and the next day turns to be an absolute surprise. There’s been several ugly cries as she didn’t want to switch lanes from being a fashion stylist to a gospel artist. But eventually she let go with the help of the Holy Spirit. Unbelievably she loves everything God is doing in her life and how he loves and cares. He broke her gracefully and she’s forever grateful He saved her . Now when she thinks of it all she laughs at herself for resisting in the first place. Childbirth has been another major challenge.

Inspiration

Love, and the gospel about Jesus Christ inspires her the most. She finds it very inspiring on how Christ died on the cross to save humankind from sin.

Upcoming Projects

“I’ll run to you” is going to be her first time releasing a music (gospel) single. Its inspired by Jesus saving her and showing her love beyond her imagination. She intends to release the single during the Easter celebrations to remind us of Jesus’ deepest and greatest love he showed by dying on the cross to save humankind. It was produced by Donald. According to her it’s beautiful walking with Jesus; he blesses with peace, joy and love. She’s thankful to God for coming to her aid when she needed him the most.

Achievements

She has achieved quite few and ready to achieve more this time with Jesus by her side. She was nominated at Glitz Style Awards 2018, Ghana Naija Showbiz Awards 2018, Fashion Lifestyle Award 2018 and Fashion Ghana award 2018 but didn’t win any.

Advice

According to her, “Jesus is the way, the truth and life. Get to know and build a relationship with Him and he will make you feel alive and beautiful.”

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’

Published

Lifebuoy GHD CEO Globle KV002

Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.

Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.

The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.

 Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.

In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.

This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.

Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.

Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:

  • Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
  • All entries must include the #GHD2022 #LifebuoyCEOgh #LifebuoyGHD22 #HforHandwashing hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
  • Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.

The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause.  As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing

The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven  behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.

Published

Customers registering their SIM cards at Temporary Registration point at Goaso in Ahafo Region

With only three days to the  September 30, 2022 deadline for SIM registration, MTN is urging its customers to have their SIM cards fully registered to avoid being disconnected.

All customers with voice and data SIM in phones and devices are mandated to register with the Ghana card before the deadline. All SIM cards that are not fully registered at the end of 30th September 2022 will be disconnected from using all services on the network.

Customers who are yet to register should start the process by dialing *404# or use the registration web portal https://simregistrationportal.mtn.com.gh to link their SIM to the Ghana card. Customers who have linked their SIM cards to the Ghana card can complete their registration by either visiting the nearest service centre/agent for the biometric capture or download the SIM Registration Self Service app on google play to complete the registration.

“Customers who are not sure of their status can check their registration status by dialing *400#. “B-Cap Yes” means a customer is fully registered”.

To ensure all customers are fully registered before the 30th of September 2022 deadline, all MTN field staff have been deployed to different locations to check registration status and register customers who have not yet registered their SIM cards.

The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization announced the mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards in Ghana last year. The registration exercise which started in October 2021 is scheduled to end on September 30, 2022.
