When even T-Pain admits to being down in the dumps, you know it’s rough out there.

Though T-Pain, 39, has made some of the biggest party anthems of the past two decades, he opened up on Thursday, February 15 about how he had struggled with finding joy in his life, especially when it came to his professional career. “I’ve been sad for a long time, but right now, I’m happy,” he captioned a video via Instagram. In the clip, T-Pain (wearing his Apple Vision Pro goggles) promoted his new single, “Dreaming,” while responding to a question about his mood.

“Am I overall happy? My n—a, absolutely,” he said. “This is about been the happiest I done been in the last — a lot. A lot. I been very, very sad and fucked up for a long time. But my wife has been there for me a lot. But you know, career-wise? If you’re talking about career-wise? Happiest I ever been. I’m actually in control. I’ve got a good team around me. Yeah, I’m happy as s—t.”

“Dreaming,” which arrived on February 9, is T-Pain’s first song since releasing On Top of the Covers in March 2023. The rapper (born Faheem Rashad Najm) said that he had been “sitting on this song for a very long time because I wanted to wait for the right time to release it to the world.”

“For some reason,” he said in the statement accompanying the release, “it just didn’t feel right to just let this get eaten up by all the negative that is the world we live in, but with all this new-found and rekindled T-Pain love all over the place, the time is now.”
T-Pain spoke about some of his professional hardships in a TikTok video posted on January 30. Though he’s known most for his hip-hop and R&B work, T-Pain has contributed music for many other artists, including some in the country world.

“Country music is where I get all my harmonies — country and gospel music. That’s where all my harmonies come from,” he said. T-Pain showed that love with On Top of the Covers, including a cover of David Allan Coe’s “Tennessee Whisky” and Gavin DeGraw’s “I Don’t Want to Be.” The Masked Singer winner also collaborated with Taylor Swift at the 2009 CMT Awards, turning her “Love Story” into a parody titled “Thug Story.”

Though T-Pain said he’s “done wrote [for] a lot of country songs,” he said he had to stop having his name listed amongst the credits because of “racism that comes after it. It is just like, ‘I’ll just take the check, don’t put me on that s–t. I’ll just take the check, bro, never mind.’”

Coincidentally, when Beyoncé released two country songs from her upcoming Renaissance Act II, fans in Oklahoma attempted to get the songs played on radio station KYKC 100.1. The station told the fans that “we do not play Beyoncé … as we are a country music station,” prompting a public backlash.

The station’s general manager later clarified that they “just didn’t know” about Beyoncé’s new country songs. “When we found out about it, we tried to get the song … which we did and we have already played it three times,” the manager said in a statement earlier this month.

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.
