The Management of Golden Sunbeam Technology Valley, a Ghanaian owned Company, has initiated an innovative and ambitious business investment in the Agribusiness industry worth USD 3 million dollars to train the youth in work based skills to transform and empower them to be self-reliant and self-employed to meet the food needs of the populace.

According to Mr Emmanuel Ohene Opare , the  Chairman of GSTV, the agribusiness project is expected to create over one (1) thousand jobs within the short to medium term, grow the national economy and provide sustainable returns for investors or donors. Providing details at the launch in Accra, Mr Ohene Opare explained that the total cost of the Project is USD 3million and in three product lines – Piggery, Aquaculture and Green house vegetable farming situated in Ayi Kumah in the Shai Osudoku district in the Greater Accra Region and Essam, near Akyem Oda in the Eastern Region. The Company has already invested USD 1 million dollars to acquire 50 acres titled land, secured it with a 1.6 kilometer wall, fully gated with CCTV cameras installed overseeing the whole land. In addition, it has procured over 120 KVA off grid solar equipment to mitigate the risk of electricity failure, sunk boreholes with solar pumps to provide water for the project. In order to boost its Fish farming initiative, it has constructed an initial 20 ponds for tilapia and catfish production.

The additional funding of USD 2m is expected to expand the Project particularly in the areas of Greenhouse Farming technology, fish processing and canning machinery and other infrastructural works.

“we have had to resort to crowdfunding to drive this ambitious agribusiness initiative because of its relative low cost and to give as many global citizens the opportunity to create wealth and jobs within the agribusiness value chain” Mrs Monica Ohene Opare, the CEO of Golden Sunbeam Technology Valley, further explained as reason for using the Crowdfunding platform. According to Mrs Opare, Global investors in the Project are not only contributing to developing the agricultural value chain eco system and creating jobs for thousands of people but will also earn a decent 25% return on their investment (in GHC) per annum for a minimum period of 3 years.

She urged the Government to support such patriotic initiatives with tax reliefs and other incentives to enable more enterpreneurs to venture into the Agricultural sector. “we intend to engage Ghana Exim Bank, NEIP and UstartProgram for the necessary support” she intimated.

The Crowdfunding campaign is expected to begin in December 1, 2021 and end in January 31st, 2022. The minimum amount to invest is GHC 1000 and maximum GHC 20,000 for a tenor of 3 years minimum. The media campaign is expected to be launched on Social Media and national dailies platforms shortly. Mrs Monica Opare encouraged donors and investors to support such worthy projects for the benefit of millions of people as more Youths are expected to be trained to acquire practical skills in Green house farming, Aquaculture and Piggery to grow the Agricultural value chain Industry and deepen food security within the sub region. As she puts it “hardworking interns will be supported with work based skill training as paid interns in production, processing and marketing of the various projects to start their own business as OUTGROWERS for the main project on the main campus”

Hip-hop is one of the most loved musical genres in the world and Ghana is no exception to this rule and as the music keeps evolving, so do the creative artists behind the songs. Dedebah is one of the first names that come to mind when the topic in discussion is “Ghanaian Female Rappers”. Dedebah is a very versatile rapper who does not shy away from any challenge. Her sound has gained massive recognition from top blogs and major industry players including hip-hop heavyweights Sarkodie, Medikal, amongst others.

Dedebah is at the pinnacle of her career where she deems it a necessity to give her fans a full body project instead of the occasional singles. Last year she took to social media to announce her maiden EP dubbed “Bosompemaa”. The anticipation for this project has gone through the roof with fans being eager to get their hands on this EP. The African Rap Diva decided to stop fans from lingering anymore by putting out the first major single off the “Bosompemaa EP” titled “Have Fun With It”.

“Have Fun With It” is a groovy hip-hop song with a very catchy and melodic hook. In the first verse she shows off her lyrical prowess. She can be heard saying in local dialect twi “Bosompemaa, mey3 ohemaa” which is simply to remind the listener of the Queen that she is, with no other person being at par with her. The song is produced by Riddim Boss and the video was shot by Director Banitchi.

Stream and enjoy !!
