Published

on

Not enough twilights, sandcastles nor charms could stop almost 50K “Instagramers” from drooling and savoring over Multiple Grammy Award winning singer, producer, and songwriter Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds’ via his special Instagram Live presentation on May 24, 2020.

Captivating audience including Brandy, Toni Braxton, Tamar Braxton, and Ghana’s very own Ms. Jackie Appiah.

The occasion was the 25th anniversary of the Soundtrack to the award-winning movie “Waiting to Exhale”. (1995)

Ms. Jackie Appiah remained captivated and interactive throughout the entire broadcast lasting almost Two hours with comments and emojis expressing her emotions and admiration for the melodious tunes of the Soundtrack that defined her generation in the 90s.

Some of her comments can be seen on the screenshots captured by Ameyawdebrah Media include,  Ghana Flags, multiple heart emojis, applause Dancing queen etc…..

What could be the connection here? Curious minds may ask, Jackie Appiah obviously became a household name in Ghana in the 90s and her nostalgia for the genre of Babyface’s music is an affirmation our favorite Actress and Philanthropist has eclectic taste and continues to mesmerize her fans and admirers about her taste and preferences for the finest things in life including great music.

It is undeniable that an appreciation for talent & craft as such exhibited in WAITING TO EXHALE movie & soundtrack makes you appreciate Creative Arts Industry  has the capacity to transcend cultures when it is harnessed effectively as cultural, economic, and educational tool.

We always knew talented performers like Ms. Jackie Appiah could have been much bigger “STARS” beyond Ghana if and only if the Creative Arts Industry was given the necessary impetus for development in Ghana. (That’s another story for another time).

The observation from the Broadcast on Instagram is simply revelatory that our beloved Jackie Appiah was whisked by Babyface Edmonds into nostalgia for her teenage and young adult years in the 1990s.

Maybe one day Ms. Jackie Appiah will grant us an in-depth insight to her life experiences in the 90s and hopefully take us all on a memory lane into her eclectic taste in everything and all things 90s including, Music, Fashion and Movies. (Hopefully)

For the young fans wondering what the fuss is about? The movie Waiting to Exhale, is a 90s Cult Classic, a Cultural Groundbreaking and Empowering Storytelling portrayed on Screen by legendary Actresses including, Angela Bassett, Whitney Houston, Loretta Devine, Lela Rochon and with one of the best-selling Movie Soundtrack Albums produced by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.

It is a highly recommended movie to revisit or watch anew (Movie Soundtrack available on Streaming platforms)

We appreciate Ms. Jackie Appiah for letting us experience another hidden passion of hers; 90s Music and her love for “Babyface”.

If you know you know! 1990s was incomparable decade to live in and live through. So much greatness. Bring-back the 90s.

Ugandan minister blames energy drinks for high teenage pregnancies

Published

on

Uganda’s State Minister for Gender and Culture Peace Mutuuzo has noted that the high number of energy drinks in the market is the major cause of teenage pregnancy in Uganda.

The minister claimed most young people have been deceived that the drinks enhance a man’s sexual power. She said the teenagers take these drinks with the hope of increasing their libido.

“There are a lot of energy drinks in the market these days that deceive our people that they will improve their manpower. This makes me wonder, what do our young people need manpower for? Are they planning to go to war?” she asked.

“Once the young men get intoxicated with these drinks, they don’t spare our young girls.”

The minister accused manufacturers of using attractive brand names for their drinks to lure young people to consume their products.

“Majority of these energy drinks have been baptized with delicious names like Mukama Nayamba, Aleluya, Praise God, and nowadays you see born again people rushing for these drinks,” She said.

She also accused the manufacturer of rebranding alcoholic brands using the names of energy drinks.

Mutuuzo called on Uganda’s National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) to intervene and regulate the number of energy drinks being sold in the Ugandan market.
