Published

on

From the stables of Nkuluziza Film Productions comes yet another production which has been selected to be screened at the biggest showcase for African films and filmmakers, AFRIFF! Being produced and directed by Alphonse Menyo, “Perceptions” seeks to break the stereotypes many of which have been created through Western film images of Africa. “Perceptions” is the only Ghanaian short film to have been selected to be screened at the 10th Africa International Film Festival which is scheduled to take place from 7th-13th November, 2021 in Lagos, Nigeria.

 

The director, Alphonse Menyo manages to successfully display Ghana in the beautiful cinematography which seeks to promote the culture and values of Ghanaians to the rest of Africa. The director believes that most people in the society remained unfulfilled in life due to their acceptance to live in another man’s world rather than pursuing their dreams. “Perceptions” seeks to artistically portray the relevance of pursuing after true happiness.

 

Alphonse Menyo is a Ghanaian born actor/filmmaker and his passion and determination led him to achievements such as Best Actor nomination in the 2020 AMAA Awards, winner of the Best Actor in the 2019 Ghana Movie Awards and the Best Actor at the 2018 Fickn Film Festival.

Black Shines Brightest: Guinness Lights Up Kumasi with its Bright House Experience

Published

on

Kumasi came to a virtual standstill as a star-studded line up of the biggest culture change makers in the country and region came together to thrill guests at the Guinness Bright House Experience held at the Golden Bean Hotel.

The Bright House Experience, a fundamental part of the Guinness Black Shines Brightest campaign, is a model bar which will serve as a cultural space and a hub for people to connect and energize each other with creativity, inspiration and, of course, a cold bottle of Guinness.

Graced by several celebrities, media influencers, culture makers and industry partners, the launch of the Guinness Bright House Experience in Kumasi was the melting pot for the celebrations of talent and achievements.

The Bright House Experience started with performances from some of the top Kumerica artistes who set the tone, with guests screaming for more at each performance.

Camidoh, Wendy Shey, Strongman, Mr. Drew and AMG Business Beyond Kontrol rapper, Medikal dropped hit song after hit song getting patrons gyrating and singing in unison as they performed.

With all the exciting performances, the crowd had lots of energy to jive along with Incredible Zigi, Face of the Black Shines Brightest Campaign. He showed off his dance skills with his Afrozig crew to a variety of songs and eventually taught the audience the viral dance to the theme song for the campaign.

The Bright House Experience will see Guinness working closely with bars across the country, to show the company’s commitment to partnering with its customers and consumers for the best lived experiences when enjoying a cold bottle of Guinness. These bars will also appear in Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale.

One of Ghana’s best reggae selectors, African Child kept the momentum on as he engaged the crowd with his ‘Kumoo’ hit song.

The next stop for the Guinness Bright House Experience is Tamale where consumers will get to feel and enjoy the Black Shines Brightest campaign.
