The winner of Big Brother All Stars, Uti Nwachukwu says it is too early to talk about marrying fellow housemate, Sheila even though the two shared a special bond in the house and have been very good friends for more than two years.  The excited winner of the $200,000 grand prize (plus an extra $2,000 for appearance), commented in a telephone conversation that: “Let’s wait and see what happens, we have to talk. Marriage is such a huge word” .

Uti described Sheila as one of the best friends he’s ever had in his life. He admitted that he likes Sheila as a person and would love to have a relation with her after having that ‘special talk’ with Sheila. According to Uti, he was particularly happy to see Sheila and the other girls return into the Big Brother house from the barn because he was getting bored out of his mind being around 3 other guys. “I got tired. I was like ‘eish’ I have to go two more weeks like this. But when the girls came in, I was so happy”.

Although Uti didn’t show much excitement when he was declared as the winner of the $200,000 prize money, he describes the feeling as great and amazing.  He explains: “In my mind, I kept talking to God. I had declared in my heart that I had won and didn’t need to show any joy. For me, I was exploding inside but I had to keep it all together. God had already told me that ‘Uti, this one is for you; my reward to you for all these years that things have been disappointing’.”

According to Uti, he didn’t lose the plot this time around, and that could have contributed to the viewers voting for him to win. “I wasn’t concentrating on acting or planning my every move; I was spontaneous.  I was very real, I was stripped bare and all my emotions were there for people to see. I didn’t have time to fake anything. I was extremely real; realer than how real I was in 2008”.

He pinpointed the winning moment, opening day, fun tasks and the return of the barn mates as some of his highlights in the Big Brother All Stars competition. He however recounted the moment he heard the news of his father’s death as the lowest point in the Big Brother House, but says he has braced himself to face the death of his father when he gets home. “We are a very strong family and once one person is strong, the others follow suit. We will be there for each other as we pay our last respects”.

The Nigerian rep said his head is still bursting and doesn’t know yet what he would do with his winnings but was sure he would return to his modeling, acting, TV presenting and music career when he gets back to Nigeria.  He added that he has already recorded 5 songs for his upcoming album and that his producer is aiming for an 11-12 track album. He describes the album as a personal album that reflects the fun part of him as well as the serious parts of him.

According to Uti, his music has a lot of funk, afro-pop, ballads, rock and House influences. He also commented that if he had to make a song about his experience in the Big Brother House, he would title it ‘Epiphany’.

Amb Michael Oquaye, CEO of GFZA, pays courtesy call on Asantehene, His Royal Majesty, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II

Published

on

As part of a three-day visit to the Ashanti Region, Ambassador Michael ANNY Oquaye, Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Free Zones Authority, and his management team paid a courtesy call on His Royal Majesty, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II.

 

The visit formed part of the CEO’s drive to engage with key stakeholders as he works towards the export-oriented vision of His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic.

 

Amb Oquaye presented the Ghana Free Zones Industrial developmental plan for the Kumasi Export Processing Zone to His Royal Majesty and informed him of steps to eject land encroachers from the site to pave the way for the start of the project.

 

The Land, acquired in 2005 as one of Ghana’s Export Processing Zones, is set to receive the needed facelift as the country positions itself as the Export Hub within the sub-region

The funding is part of a World Bank facility extended to Ghana to develop the Greater Kumasi Industrial Park.

 

As part of efforts to get the project started on time, the World Bank engaged consultants in partnership with the Ministry of Trade and Industry to undertake several exercises, including site assessment, best practice benchmarking, environmental and social impact assessment.

 

On-ground inspection is set to start from October 2021. Hence, it has become critical to eject all the illegal structures to pave the way for the planned development.

 

On his part, His Royal Majesty congratulated Amb Oquaye on his appointment and expressed his confidence in the former Ambassador to deliver on the new mandate given to him by the President as he did during his tenure as Ghana’s Ambassador to India.

 

The Asantehene added that he supports the steps to remove all illegal structures and encroachers who have acted without attaining building permits from the Ejisu Municipal Authority.

 

Otumfuor Osei Tutu II recalled how he supported the acquisition of the Land in 2005 and lamented its abandonment all these years.

 

However, he was optimistic that the new focus on the Greater Kumasi industrial project would see the Land being put to its intended use.

 

The Management team of the Ghana Free Zones Authority made a donation to Manhyia during the visit.
