Ghanaians on Thursday, January 25 received the news about the death of popular photographer, Emmanuel Bobbie, also known as Bob Pixel, with a lot of sadness and shock.

Friends of Bob Pixel, led by colleague photographer Yaw Pare are calling for help support the family, the photographer left behind.

Yaw Pare shared details in a tribute via Facebook as follows:

“Losing a family member is not easy, It gets even worse when a friend becomes family. The fact remains no amount of grief, cries, sorrow or pain being felt can bring or restore what is lost but rather only the memories that live on and for that my friend, brother and colleague in the same profession left a lot !! You will be dearly missed “Blaa Bob” as I fondly called him. He was jovial! warm! big hearted and his willingness to share what he knew was just priceless!!

“Impacting a lot of people including myself!! We kind of rubbed of each other especially when we went shooting at events when we were so tired and he will shout Blaa Yaw na b)k)) dier (all good?) and I will respond Blaa Bob mabl3 roff (I am really tired) he will say ay3 pinsoo (meaning its tough)!! we will laugh it off encourage each other and he will tell me yen wie!! ( lets finish) knowing in mind we will conclude the shoot with some fufu we already made arrangement for.. Oh Blaa BOB!!! 4 weeks ago we were planning a trip together when I said I had a shoot that weekend!

“The next thing I heard you were in the hospital sending me a pic of you to confirm you werent joking. We kept chatting till 3 days ago and then your untimely death!! I was totally loss for words yesterday!! stomach started churning, then came the flurry of calls and text messages etc etc even till now. You were loved by a lot including myself many thought we would be rivals due to our competitiveness but was all for the love and passion of what we loved doing most. You leave behind a wife and 3 lovely kids and as devastating as your loss is it can be equally devastating for the family you left behind to move on.

“As a friend and family I am calling on all who felt the pain or can put themselves in the shoes of the family whom he has left behind with her daughter still not in the know of his demise, to come together and raise some funds in the name of Bob Pixel as he is popularly known, to his wife’s account to support the family.

SXSW Music Festival Dr Pushkin Aggie Budukusu

What is SXSW Music Festival?

The Outlandish album is finally out, and already Dr. Pushkin is on his way to the SXSW Music Festival. The conscious rapper has been confirmed as a performer at the SXSW Music Festival 2023. SXSW, also known as South by Southwest, is the world’s biggest festival of its kind. The event, which takes place in Austin – Texas, brings together over 160,000 fans to a barrage of musical performances, conferences, film premieres, and several mini-events that characterize art. This year’s event comes between the 10th and 19th of March 2023; it will, as usual bring the What’s Next in Tech, Film, Music, and beyond to patrons of the event and the world.

Which Ghanaian artists have performed on the SXSW Music Festival stage?

In 2019, Africa was prioritized by the organizers of the SXSW Music Festival with an “Africa to the World” theme. The event featured a myriad of Africa’s finest musicians and many others. Representing Ghana was Jojo Abot, Stonebwoy, and Efya. In 2023, Dr. Pushkin is honored to represent Ghana on the show.

In a conversation with Dr. Pushkin, he indicated how excited he was about the opportunity. While commenting on it, he mentioned the crew he’s mounting the stage with. According to the “Lies” and “Wake Up” rapper, Ghana’s undisputed tongue-twist specialist, Budukusu, will join him on stage.

The two rappers have collaborated on three songs off Dr. Pushkin’s latest album. And since they’ve been hanging around a lot lately, they are working some magic as a team. Also on Dr. Pushkin’s crew for SXSW 2023 will be Aggie and AZA, featured on “Forgive them” and “No Regrets,” respectively, on the Outlandish album. Selecta Rah of Club Bantu fame will be the crew’s official Deejay as they mount the stage to thrill and awaken the audience.

Dr. Pushkin’s performance comes on the heals of Jojo Abbot, Efya, and Stoneboy who graced the event in 2019 as Ghanaians.

History of the SXSW Music Festival

SXSW started in 1987 with 177 artists and 15 stages. By 2019, the event had 1,964 showcasing artists (including musicians) and 94 Venues & Stages. Notable artists and personalities participating in SXSW are Former US President Barak Obama, Tonny Bennet, Black-eyed Peas, Cypress Hill, Jean Grae, Chamillionaire, Lady Gaga, and several high-profile personalities.

SXSW is an experience of live musical performances, conference sessions, film and television screenings, exhibitions, networking events, professional development opportunities, art installations, and many more. This year’s event takes place from March 10-19. However, the musical festival component is a six-day event, 13th – 18th.
