BREAKING: Highlife music legend Nana Ampadu is reportedly dead.
Amb Michael Oquaye, CEO of GFZA, pays courtesy call on Asantehene, His Royal Majesty, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II
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.

The recording process was preceded by a week-long Zoom writing camp where Lungi, at her home studio in Cape Town, together with Dantae Johnson and songwriter Amelia Payne, at their studio in London, gave birth to the songs on COURAGE.
The EP was co-written, recorded and produced by Dantae Johnson at The Woods Studios in London and mixed & executive produced by Pete ‘Boxsta’ Martin at the Matrix Studio complex. Addicted was produced by Tega at Blues Steam Entertainment Studio in Lagos, Nigeria. Lungi recorded all the vocals at the Sound Foundry studio in Cape Town with Greg Abrahams.
The EP is also mixed in Dolby Atmos by Jan ‘Stan’ Kybert and will be available in Spatial Audio on Apple Music.
100s of Final Year Students Receive Impartation Under Phrimpong’s Possible Project
Ghanaian musician, Phrimpong on the morning of Friday commenced activities to the rollout of his informative springboard event dubbed The Possible Project
The event which saw over 500 soon-to-be JHS graduates in attendance and prepared for a positive interaction was a sight to behold on the streets of Ashtown, as students gradually trooped into the premises of Apostolic Junior High School.
Addressing students on the purpose of the gathering, the rapper who grew up in same vicinity took them down memory lane through his musical and academic journey.
“I grew up in this neighbourhood as a young rapper and this is where I recorded my first song as a professional artiste. I have had the privilege of teaching at the St Anne’s Anglican Junior High School as an intern whiles a student of the University of Education Winneba where I read BSc Biological Science Education from 2016 to 2020 whiles pursuing my dream of becoming a mainstream musician.”
Derrick Frimpong Manso further shared the not all rosy experience of his determination while battling and shuffling time to pursue a talent and academic heights coupled with different demands, but smiled to the successes chalked so far and used himself and others alike, including Okyeame Kwame, Gyakie, Yussif Chipsah, and Marcus Rashford of Man United as a reference point to revive hope and drum the achievers’ mantra.
“Today I come to you with a short message. You can be anything you want to be with your talent and your education together. As young as you are, please pursue your talent and your goals to become whoever you want to be but please don’t forsake your education”
Ancestral Poet and Ghana’s Ambassador for Culture, Prof. Ohenenana Kofi Owusu Nyarko, urged students to find an interest and choose a role model to inspire and direct oneself, and also pledged to support students who are good in poetry whiles asking schools authorities to form poetry clubs to harness talents.
Students were later gifted branded stationery, and entertained to the sounds of Phrimpong and Kweku Darlington, amid snacks.
Following the success of the maiden edition, the rapper hints of his next school or community beneficiary soon
