Guest Blog: VGMA Heroes Concert: Kudos To Charterhouse …That Was A Good Show

Published

on

It was a night meant to celebrate the heroes at the frontline of Ghana and the world’s Covid-19 fight, but we must as well celebrate the heroics of Madam Theresa Ayoade (Charterhouse C.E.O) and her team for an awesome concert they put together last night.

Charterhouse, organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) had indirectly been thrown a challenge by Mr. Sadiq Abdullai and his 3Music Awards Crew with their near flawless organization of the virtual 3Music Awards 2020 a couple of weeks ago. The pressure since then had been on Charterhouse to respond in equal measure especially when the VGMAs is regarded as Ghana’s biggest music award scheme.

 

For VGMAs not to be usurped by the “baby” 3Music, industry players and music lovers had for the past weeks been urging them to respond to this challenge, and what a grand style response that was with the virtual “Heroes Concert” last night. If this was a litmus test for a proper virtual VGMAs, then the blue litmus has indeed turned red for them to go ahead and give us a virtual red-lettered VGMAs 2020.

 

From Chief Moomen’s poetic introduction to Joe Mettle’s performance, one can testify that indeed this was a well thought through event, beautifully crafted and well produced to the satisfaction of the enthused virtual audience watching from the comfort of their homes.

 

An awesome stage on which stood an amazing live band setup was enough to convince everyone watching that this was not a joke of a virtual concert, and the elegant lighting added a touch of magnificence and splendour to every performer who graced the stage.

To single out one musician for praise may be a disservice to all the super talented musicians who dished to us the entertainment needed to help allay fears and ease tension in these hard times while also celebrating our brave and gallant frontline health workers who are sacrificing their all in this global battle against the novel coronavirus.

Honourable mentions however, to all those musicians who performed with the accompaniment of the live band. The chemistry that existed between some of them and the band, came with some calmness and produced sounds that was soothing to the ear, something that has been missing for some time now in most modern-day music performances, and I can’t help but agree with blogger Kobby Kyei when he tweeted that, “Event organizers should provide more room for our acts to perform live like this”.

Another huge positive was the inclusion of Chief Moomen, the poet who got the whole action off to a flyer as he magically wove words together and delivered that eloquent act of poetry. He strengthened my long-held position that, event organizers should involve other creative people like comedians, poets, writers, etc. to sell their products to the masses. We have such talents in abundance and all they cry for are platforms and opportunities such as these. Need I say more about Naa Ashorkor, the ever-masterful host?

In all, the “Heroes Concert” indeed showed that Charterhouse knows how to deliver a good show even in abnormal times like these and to quote a tweet from celebrated Ghanaian blogger Ameyaw Debrah, “Salute to Charterhouse. I wasn’t disappointed one bit for anticipating this”.

Rev Obofour and his bodyguards, garbed in black outfits, made their presence known when they showed up at the funeral in their numbers.

It’s unclear where the funeral was held, however, several reports suggested it was held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

Last week, Rev Obofuor smoked the peace pipe with the founder of the International God’s Way Church.

The two surprised many after Reverend Obofour called Angel Obinim on national television to ask of the date of his father’s funeral after honouring his official invitation.

According to Reverend Obofour, though he had disagreements and conflicts with Angel Obinim in the past, they have since remained close friends and brothers in the ministry.

“We have to be present there. There would be lots of pastors and he is my brother… there is no way I can be happy about his father’s demise. I will go and support him because I know how it feels like to lose a father,” Rev. Obofour said.

Earlier, ‘Angel’ Daniel Obinim sent a word of caution to Obofour indicating that Ghana will not be able to contain both of them if he fails to stop peddling falsehood about him.

Published

US-based Ghanaian actor, comedian, dancer, graphic designer and model, BogaGH has been quiet on his funny videos for sometime now.

BogaGH soon became one of the favourites among  popular Ghanaian Instagram, Vine  and Youtube comedians living abroad, such as MrCocoyam and EbabyKobby.

However after a long break from creating funny videos, BogaGH appears missing on the radar.

“I know a lot of people have forgotten about me because I took a break from the funny videos scene. I believe that if I was more consistent with my craft, I would have been one of the top content creators from Africa by now. For those who are on top at the moment, they shouldn’t get too comfortable, because I may return soon,” BogaGH remarked in a chat.

He also hinted that fans should expect to see him soon in a Netflix movie.

Known in real life as Bryant Nana Kwaku Appiah, BogaGH was born in Wood Green, North London but grew up in Mpraeso in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

He attended  C.K.C Baptist International School in Mpraeso and then moved to Mpraeso Secondary School.
