The reigning Miss Universe Ghana, Yayra Nego has visited Accra Girls High School to speak to students as part of a new project launched by the Miss Universe Ghana organization that seeks to empower young women across Ghana.

Miss Nego commented that Accra Girls High School was a perfect start to the campaign as it is an all-girls school and the school’s administration also bought into the concept of empowering the students.  She also added that the campaign also feeds in to the core values of her awareness group known as WAKE (Women Achieving Knowledge and Empowerment), and so she will basically integrate the programs already available in the awareness group into her interactions with young girls in the schools she visits.

During her interactions with the students, the beauty queen gave pointers on how to identify goals and the steps to ensure or check progress towards achieving such goals. She encouraged the young girls to be bold and confident in their approach to academics and all other pursuits. She also took the students through her journey into the Miss Universe Ghana contest and the Miss Universe international pageant.

She answered questions from the students after presenting her speech. Upon the request of the students, Miss Nego gave grooming tips on how to  the girls should look and present themselves as ladies; including tips on how to walk gracefully in public; how to dress, and even how to sit in public. The students also asked the beauty queen for lessons on how to do the catwalk and she delightfully obliged. “It was an awesome experience interacting with the girls.  They were very receptive and they wanted to learn so much. They asked so many questions and it was a really great experience for me,” comments Yayra.

The Head Prefect of the school commented that she had learnt a lot from the interaction: “It was so exciting to have Miss Universe Ghana in our school, and I learnt so much.  I learnt a lot on self-confidence and that, you have to make a to-do-list of what you want to do in future and each time you look at it you have to be confident that you can achieve what you want in the future “.

According to the Miss Universe Ghana, plans are ongoing to have similar interactions with other female students in other schools across Ghana; and she would also revisit Accra Girls High School to find out the impact of her interaction on the students.  She also hinted that she is open to do other charities and also work on an HIV/AIDs campaign that is very dear to her heart.[ad#ad program long]

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.
