But when two political families in Nigeria unite, the glamour, pomp and pageantry is a notch higher! https://youtu.be/7DPV2YKmny4 I attended my first Nigerian wedding in Enugu from August 9-11 when my buddy, Dr. Samuel Kenechukwu Nnamani (son of former Senate President, Ken Nnamani)and Ezinne Ekpeluchi Chime (former governor of the state, Sullivan Chime) tied the knot in traditional and white wedding ceremony. https://ameyawdebrah.com/really-british-royal-wedding-cost-32-million-boost-economy-80m/ Kenechukwu Nnamani Ezinne Chime wedding1 The Big Enugu wedding kicked off with a splendid and colourful traditional wedding ceremony in the Chime’s village of Udi, Enugu. My biggest highlight from the elaborate ceremony filled with music and dancing was when the bride, after dancing, presented a drink to her man, who was seated in the thick crowd. After accepting and drinking it, the groom then joined his bride to make their way to father of the bride for his blessings. https://ameyawdebrah.com/fabulous-ghanaian-weddings-tiniwah-mensah-emmanuel-nyarko/ Kenechukwu Nnamani Ezinne Chime wedding5 The White wedding was underline with Anglicanism, and the reception followed with more excitement as the couple, family and friends celebrated the union. Kenechukwu Nnamani Ezinne Chime wedding2 Both  ceremonies had in attendance very important dignitaries such as the incumbent governor of Enugu state, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Sporting events are known to attract enthusiasts from all over the world. People travel across continents to support their favourite teams and enjoy the experience of watching a live game. Catch these four iconic world sporting events on your round-the-world trip.

The Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is an iconic event that attracts one of the largest audiences on screen and in person. It’s an annual event that involves the final playoff game in the National Football League. The winner is crowned the league champion and awarded the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The event has always been held on the first Sunday of February. However, from 2022, it’s been scheduled for the second Sunday of the month. Glendale, Arizona will host the 2023 Super Bowl as Las Vegas, Nevada takes over for the 2024 playoff.

The Super Bowl attracts many sponsors, and the organisers always try to outdo themselves. Special attention is given to the half-time show, which has become an iconic part of the playoff games. The show involves live performances from celebrities in the music industry. Special ads also premiere during the event, and many brands take advantage of the large audience.

If you are planning a Super Bowl trip, it’s best to do it in advance. It’s one of America’s most anticipated sporting events, and travelling gets crazy as the day draws near. Nonetheless, planning ensures you enjoy and make the most of your trip.

The Rugby World Cup

Every four years, twenty national teams meet for the Rugby World Cup tournament. It’s the 3rd largest sporting event in the world and attracts audiences from across the globe. The tournament runs for seven weeks and involves forty matches held at different venues in the host country.

The next Rugby World Cup is set to kick off in September 2023 on French turf. Furthermore, France has set aside nine venues for the matches and is keen to shutter all previous attendance records. Therefore, it’s going to be the biggest Rugby World Cup yet.

Since Turkey is a renowned tourist destination, a trip to see the Champions League Final should have a busy itinerary. The country hosts some of the most iconic buildings, like the Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The cities of Istanbul and Antalya also have unique attractions.

Therefore, if you are going for the Champions League final, plan early. Over 70,000 people are set to attend the final; therefore, you don’t want to be caught in the chaos.

ICC World Cup

India will be the host of the 2023 ICC World Cup. The cricket-crazed country will host the tournament solo for the first time. As a result, it’s going to be the biggest cricket event.

Fans will also be treated to the unique Indian hospitality that includes fine dining and expansive temples and palace tours. The country is home to over 1 billion people; therefore, planning is important to avoid getting lost in the masses.

Sporting events are a great excuse to travel the world. They offer a unique experience and bring different foreigners into one place. Nonetheless, you must book your trip with the right team to enjoy the experience.

SENYA! In Her Own Lane

Published

SENYA! In Her Own Lane

Who is SENYA DONKOR ?

Just like everyone else, I am a human being who bleeds, cries, laughs, and makes mistakes. Sometimes I am very shy when meeting new people. Understanding how human I am reduces the pressure that was once placed on me and by those around me. I am a lover of love, life, flowers, music, art, fashion, creation and food. I value integrity, spirituality, creativity, forgiveness, and entrepreneurship/enterprise. I am Senya because I have learned to accept all of me—the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in-between.

What kind of artistic mark do you wish to leave on the world?

As a musical artist I intend to create music that others can relate to, vibe to, dance to, and chill with. I have come to realize that these things can’t be planned, they kind of just happen. I can create a song that “I think” others will like, and in the end they end up liking the one I least expected. It’s truly funny to me when I think about it, and it helps me to understand the spirit of music. The spirit of music can be very unpredictable at times and very unassuming. If continuously chosen by the spirit of music, I intend to make music that is everlasting because real art never dies.

What inspires you ?

Inspiration is everywhere. It’s in the air that we breathe, it’s in the cycle of the moon, the brightness of the sun, and it’s in the laughter of our loved ones. I am inspired by everything around me, and everything inside of me. My meandering thoughts inspire me, the sadness of my yesterdays inspire me, and the pains of my growth inspire me. I am inspired by everything.

Who are your musical inspirations?

My musical inspirations are wide ranging. The list starts with the heartfelt emotions of Brenda Fassie, the passion of Michael Jackson, the unmatched work ethic of Beyoncé. It goes on to the out of the box expression of Doja Cat, the Savageness of Rihanna, the precise calculations of Jay-z, to the unbothered climactic build-up of Jon Bellion. My inspirations were there for me musically when I didn’t know how to express myself verbally. And my list is forever growing.

Do you think people see you to be weird?

Ha! I’ve arrived at a place where I do not have the time to care if people think I am this or that. Healing has taught me to look into myself, to build intimacy with myself, because that is when true authenticity is developed. The real question should be do I think I am weird ? And the answer is yes.  For in the end, I am what I say I am.

Hilemzi Foundation to feed 500 needy children on January 7

Published

Hilemzi Foundation
“Help others without any reason and give without the expectation of receiving anything in return.” – Roy T. Bennett

Hilemzi Foundation is set to embark on another “Feed The Street Needy 2023”, a project which seeks to feed 500 needy children in selected localities within Ghana on Saturday, January 7, 2023.

The issue of streetism is very pathetic, to say the least. The ugly truth of some Ghanaian children who sleep on our streets, in front of shops, homes, and even in disgusting places in our environments cannot go unnoticed. Problems of rural-urban migration, broken homes, and poverty spearhead the causes of streetism in Ghana today, that’s why Hilemzi Foundation is here to support.

One of the foundation’s wishes is, no children are to be seen on the streets, hustling under the scorching sun with all the risks involved, not knowing what the outcome of the day would be.

Hilemzi Foundation believes given the right opportunity, these children who find themselves on the streets would make better choices and make a better living. With a long-term project of building a training center to house some of these street children in time to come, by making them feel wanted and important to the country.

Hilemzi Foundation believes in making the country a better place. Where else do we start, if not starving a child who has to run after cars with his merchandise just so he can afford a single meal. Although the long-term goal is to gradually reduce or eradicate streetism with support from government agencies and international bodies. The foundation wants to start by making the street children know that they matter and that they are cared for especially in the country.

This year’s edition seeks to feed over five hundred (500) children in selected localities within Ghana and also assure them of advocating for streetism to be abolished in the country. Also, to provide them with some items and interact with them, to encourage and make them feel loved.

The foundation has targeted an amount of ten thousand Ghana cedis (ghc10,000.00) for this year’s project.

Hilemzi Foundation is appealing to and calling on individuals, non-governmental organizations, corporate institutions, and all Ghanaians to sponsor or partner with them to make a difference in the lives of these underprivileged ones who find themselves in such unfortunate circumstances.

To donate, kindly send your fund to this MTN mobile money number 0549752545 (Hilda Emeruwa Oluchi).

As much as GHc1 is no longer money trust me your Ghc1 is money to them and can still save a life (….it can still buy 2 sackets mineral water which when multiplied by 10 is equal to the value of a bag of mineral water) this is to say what you call little indeed still makes a mighty ocean as the saying goes.

So please donate to help Hilemzi Foundation again feed the street needy and make them believe that Matthew 6:25-34 will forever be yeah and Amen ( their maker who feeds the birds of the skies and grasses of the land without them worrying about what to eat the following day is still the same God who made a promise to them never to leave them hungry.

Scent of Africa launches Chapter 2 of its “Eternal Legends” Collection

Published

Scent of Africa, a Fine Fragrance House, established by Ghandour Cosmetics Ltd., has released its second new luxury fragrance duo, Hagé (for men) and Laïka (for women), in an exclusive media event. This second out of three His and Her fragrance duos launched this year continues in the tradition of the Eternal Legends Collection, drawing inspiration from legends in African mythology, resources such as the Company’s production hub in Accra, indigenous ingredients from across the continent, and its extraordinary, patented bottle design.

The much-anticipated event MCed by The Stylish KOD, brought together media, influencers, bloggers, retailers, and the Scent of Africa team, in an interpretation of African identity, luxury, and modernity. The Event held at NsuomNam (Meat of the Sea), the most innovative pan-African seafood restaurant with their carefully curated menu by internationally celebrated Chef Mick Élysée, located in the heart of Accra, was vibrant and colourful, filled with the avant-garde millennial energy that the fragrance embodies. It also featured cocktails that incorporated some ingredients used in the making of the fragrance and live band music from the iconic artist Efya.product images hage laika 1

Hagé is a leathery scent created by renowned Perfumer Jordi Fernandez, evocative of its inspiration of Agé, the god of hunting, wild animals, and wide-open spaces revered by the Fon, also called Dahomey people found in Benin, Nigeria, and Togo. The key ingredients of the fragrance include Armoise and Cedarwood from Morocco and Geranium from Egypt. The fragrance’s personality is of a man with heightened senses and intuition who never lets go of his prey, a goal, or conquest. Hagé is worn like a sensory and sensual superpower leaving an irresistible, lasting trail.

Laïka is a floral fruity fragrance signed by international Perfumer Nathalie Cetto. The famous Swahili love song, Malaïka, lends the fragrance its theme. This feminine muse is as inspirational as an angel, adored and celebrated. She is an embodiment of pure light whose loving nature wins people over and garners respect through her wisdom. The sensory elements of Buchu from South Africa, Pomegranate, a bouquet of Roses and Orange Blossom from Morocco and Tunisia, and Vanilla from Madagascar allow fluidity and contrast between softness and energy. This perfume will surround its wearer from her crown like a halo and spread around her body like wings.

The new duo takes centre stage and glows from the light its predecessor shone. Ripples from the successful Chapter 1 release of the first duo, the woody, spicy scent of Rakh “The Winner” and the rich, fruity floral bouquet of Nefee “The Queen” signed by Master Perfumer Olivier Pescheux and Perfumer Delphine Lebeau respectively is still being felt. Ceremoniously launched on 6th March 2022, the duo was recognized in September 2022 with a bronze trophy in the “Perfumes and Fragrances” category at the #Pentawards2022 – the world’s leading and most prestigious packaging design competition hosted in London this year. Subsequently, in October 2022, Scent of Africa exhibited at the Tax-Free World Association (TFWA) World Conference and Exhibition 2022 in Cannes, France, introducing the duo to the duty-free and travel retail world. As the page turns on Chapter 1, it sets a riveting tone for the story to climax in Chapter 2. The third and last Chapter 3 in the collection is expected to be released in 2023.

Tanal Ghandour, Founder of Scent of Africa, said, “Scent of Africa celebrates the unity and diversity of the African continent while contributing to dispersing its beautiful culture throughout the world by showcasing the creativity and prowess of its people through high perfumery. Importantly, it also responds to the demand for personalization in an increasingly inclusive world where Beauty evolves by offering a brand infused with the soul and olfactory jewels of the African continent, made in Ghana for the world.”

As Africa’s culture advances in fashion, art, culinary, and entertainment industries, Scent of Africa contributes to this trend by distinguishing itself in the fine fragrance market with its unique purpose and messaging. As the fragrance blazes the trail of high perfumery, we see it already resonate with people of African descent and patrons of luxury perfumes worldwide looking for something phenomenal.

The Eternal Legends Eaux de Parfum Collection comes in 50ml and 10ml sizes. They can be found in luxury retail perfume shops in Ghana, such as Paris 2, Zino, Galaxxxy Perfumery, Aurora, and Dufry in Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport. To connect with the brand on digital platforms, visit its website www.scentofafrica.com and on social media (Instagram, Facebook & YouTube) via the handle @scentofafrica to learn about these fragrances rising out of Africa and diffusing across the continent and beyond.
