ties that bind premiereLos Angeles based Ghanaian film maker, Leila Djansi may have finally broken the jinx surrounding her movie premieres in Ghana as her December 30th premiere of ‘Ties That Bind’ at the National Theatre was as sellout. Perhaps a ripple effect from sweeping the Ghana Movie Awards held on December 25, Leila, who has previously produced several critically acclaimed and award-winning movies but never managed to sell out any of her premieres, exorcized her demons and packed the National Theatre auditorium with two showings of ‘Ties That Bind’.  The first showing filled the auditorium and some patrons with tickets had to either stand and watch the movie or wait for the second showing.

The premiere was attended by the cast and crew and special guests including former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings and the Australian High Commissioner. Two of the three leading ladies, Ama K Abebrese and Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde were in attendance looking ravishing and excited about the movie. A stunning Omotola, dressed in a dark-brown gown adorned with a ruby laced neckline, arrived at the National Theatre nearing the end of the first showing for ‘Ties That Bind’, and she did it in style. And Ama K wore an overbust gown by KNAF Couture adorned style necklace made of bends and a pendant of the African map. Also in attendance were movie, music and sports stars such as John Paintsil, Nadia Buari, Majid Michel, John Dumelo (who also starred in the movie), Buk Bak, Menaye Donkor Muntari, Desmond Elliot and others. ‘Ties That Bind’ is now showing at the Silverbird cinemas and will soon premiere in other regions. The Kumasi premiere took place at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Kumasi City simultaneously with the Accra premiere and was also over-subscribed! ties that bind premiere 3ties that bind premiere 4ties that bind premiere 5ties that bind premiere 6ties that bind premiere 8ties that bind premiere 2]]>

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.
