Although Stonebwoy’s ‘Epistles of Mama’ was released on December 12, 2017, songs on the album continue to receive massive airplay causing many to pitch the project to receive a potential GRAMMY nomination next year. Ghanaian Radio/TV Personality and host of Route919 on Live FM, Antoine Mensah is in absolute support. The album dedicated to the memory of his mother, Catherine Satekla, who died in 2015, Stonebwoy’s ‘Epistles of Mama’ features Sean Paul, Burna Boy, Sarkodie, Efya, King Promise, Edem and Joey B. The double disk project is made up of 24 songs – 12 Dancehall/Reggae songs and 12 Afrobeat songs.

Taking to Twitter, the Programs Manager of live 91.9FM, Antoine Mensah wrote:

A lot of people seems to agree as well but here are 4 reasons why Stonebwoy is likely to receive that nomination in 2019;

  1. “Epistles of Mama” joined the likes of Rocky Dawuni, Osibisa, and Fuse ODG, as a Ghanaian music project to make the Billboard World Chart. The album peaked at number 13 on 30th December last year, though it spent one week on the chart.

2. By the end of 2017, ‘Epistles Of Mama (EOM)’ was rated the second best album in the world by readers of Reggaeville, the world’s biggest gathering of reggae lovers and fans on the internet. His spot was above that of Damian Marley’s ‘Stony Hill’ album.

3. Since it’s release, songs on the album have been performed on over 15 stages both locally and internationally. From from Budapest’s Summerjam, to Reggae Reel in Belgium, straight to Jamaica, back home to his well-attended “Ashiaman To The World” concert and recently on stage at the “One Africa” music festival in Dubai.

4. 9 months after Stonebwoy released his “Epistles Of Mama” Album, the classic collection still sounds fresh on the market with even more appeal as it registers bigger hits. The smart move by the BHIM Nation boss to release its videos in bits all year long makes the many enjoy and appreciate the artistic work put into making the project. “Most Original”, a major hit on the album which features Jamaican platinum-selling and Grammy winning-artiste, Sean Paul, had its official video premiered on TIDAL, Jay-Z’s music store.

Last year, the “Top Skanka” missed out on what would have been a historic win at the 2018 Grammy Awards. A win by Morgan Heritage in the ‘Best Reggae Album’ category would have made Stonebwoy the first Ghanaian to win a Grammy award.

Hopefully next year his work gets noticed and finally receives a nomination but most importantly win an award.

Kira Forex: The Ghanaian woman setting the pace in the Forex Trading business

Published

on

The advent of new media and digital money-making platforms has provided a plethora of opportunities for people to earn money and transform their life stories through legitimately acquired wealth and affluence.

One such life-changing and lucrative opportunity presented by new media is the forex trading business, which has surged in the past decade, leading to the creation of millions of new millionaires and billionaires worldwide.

Forex Trading is essentially the art of studying the global currency market and leveraging information about currency rates to buy and exchange currencies on a forex marketing platform.

The popularity of Forex Trading has soared in the country over the past half-decade, with several Ghanaians studying currency trends and making significant financial gains from it. However, only one name stands out in the business.

Amid the growing interest in the Forex Trading business in the country, only one name has emerged as the pioneer and pacesetter: Lamidi Sikira, better known by her brand name, “Kira Forex.”

Just as Yaa Asantewaa is synonymous with feminine bravery in Ghana, Kira Forex has become the prime face of Ghanaian and African excellence in the forex trading business.

With over ten years of experience, Kira Forex has rightfully earned the reputation of a forex trading luminary, with several awards in Ghana and across the continent validating her position as one of Africa’s leading forex traders.

Her success in the field is so profound that she revealed in 2023 that she turned down a $20,000-a-month job to continue leading the pack in the forex trading industry.

A trait of Kira Forex that endears her to many Ghanaians is her selflessness and willingness to guide others, particularly Ghanaian women, out of poverty. Having established herself in the field, Kira Forex founded the Kira Forex Academy with the goal of enlightening Ghanaians, especially women, about the forex trading industry, enabling them to earn money from the comfort of their homes.

A staunch advocate for the independence and growth of women, Kira Forex believes that financial freedom is the most crucial condition for independence and is thus leading many Ghanaian women on the path to financial freedom and wealth.

She also established the Kira Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization committed to enlightening, enriching, and empowering individuals in Ghana and across Africa. Through this foundation, she actively supports programs and social causes aimed at improving the lives of youths and the elderly, exemplifying her commitment to serving humanity.

Her outstanding work as a Forex Trader and philanthropist has earned her several awards, including Most Influential Trader and Best Forex Trader in Singapore, Outstanding Service Award in Nigeria, Africa’s Under 40 CEOs Award in Uganda, and Best Female Forex Trader of the Year in South Africa, among others.
