Jackie Appiah adopts brilliant student from the Borstal Institute for Juveniles,

Jackie Appiah has promised to sponsor the education of an inmate at the Borstal Institute for Juveniles in Accra.

The actress made the promise on her birthday after authorities at the Institute appealed to her to support the said brilliant inmate.

As part of the celebrations, Jackie visited the institute to donate items for the upkeep of the boys at the Juvenile detention centre . It was during the donation in the home that the officers in charge of the institute asked for help for the inmate who is said to be very brilliant. “We would want to specially appeal to you for assistance. We have a very brilliant but needy inmate student who attends SHS at the same time…He is in form 2 and he is actually reading science. We want sponsorship to take care of his T&T, writing materials, among others,” one officer said.

Responding to the officer’s plea, Jackie disclosed that she has had discussions with her management team and they have come to the conclusion of helping the boy. “I have discussed with my management…I hear he is a very brilliant science student…we will gladly take up the bills,” Jackie said to applause.

The Borstal Institute for juveniles now called The Senior Correctional Centre is a juvenile correction institute under the Ghana Prisons Service (GPS).

The centre is a correction centre for people who are under 18 years old and have been convicted of criminal or civil offenses. The period that a convict spends in the centre is aimed at reforming him or her so they can fit into society easily after their stay at the centre.

ABOUT TYLA

Tyla’s music pushes boundaries. Infused with her vibrant personality, her songs offer an innovative take on pop and R&B, shimmering with the euphoria of South African amapiano, and an otherworldly approach to production that makes every track feel like something totally new. The Johannesburg native introduced herself internationally with her debut “Getting Late” featuring Kooldrink, and “To Last,” her new singles via Epic Records, push her artistry forward and solidify her versatility as she bounds toward her goal. But despite her big dreams, Tyla is doing her best to remain carefree. She never anticipated that “Getting Late” would permeate beyond South Africa, much less reach the U.S., but realized something was happening when people all over the world were making TikToks to the song, eventually resulting in millions of streams. Tyla’s emotionally rich music began when she was just 12, penning songs in her diary, which led to writing and singing more seriously as a high schooler. Ever since, she’s been guided by her intuition, which has her primed to build out her fan base and maximize her reach. She’s focused on the year ahead, performing and crafting her debut studio album, with the same intention from when she began. Signed to Epic Records through a joint venture with Johannesburg/New York-based Fax Records, and co-managed by We Make Music and Africa Creative Agency, Tyla is poised to achieve international dominance with style, soul, and spirit.
