Gospel Musician Efua Black Celebrates Birthday With Father’s Home

Published

on

Takoradi-based gospel artiste, Mrs. Ellen Tsibuah also known in the music circles as Efua Black has donated assorted food items to the Father’s Home Care Ministry at Anto Aboso in the Shama District as part of the celebrations marking her birthday.

Although Efua Black’s birthday fell on Tuesday, 12 October, for the purpose of convenience, she chose to celebrate the occasion on Saturday, 16th of October to extend love to the orphans at the children’s home.

She donated numerous food items including fresh tomatoes, tomatoes pastes, pepper, frozen chicken, fish, onions biscuits, and drinks among others.

The children of the Home were engaged in numerous fun and exciting activities to put smiles on their faces and to give them a sense of belonging.

According to Efua, orphans also yearn for the presence of their parents when they see other kids in society with theirs and this phenomenon could affect their self-esteem when they don’t get similar care and love.

She added that spending her birthday through the extension of the love of Christ to the children was timely and a step in the right direction for her ministry.

“As a gospel artiste, my main purpose is to preach Christ through my music and extend the love of God to these children. I am here, to make them feel part of a bigger society. These children may feel some sense of loneliness when they see other children with their parents, this could affect their self-esteem, therefore, it’s our responsibility as a society to enhance their sense of belonging and continue to show them, love  “.

Efua expressed her heart warm gratitude to the caretakers of the Home for their services and advised them to continue doing more towards uplifting the plight of every child at the Home as there are more blessings in such work but could equally turn out to be a curse when the children are not managed well.

“The Bible says love to orphans and widows is one of the greatest blessings, if they are not well managed, it could be a curse for the caretakers, so it behooves on us to do our maximum best to secure the happiness of the children for God to also bless us”, she stated.

Efua black called on well-meaning Ghanaians, benevolent organizations, and the Government to extend helping hands to the Home.
She hinted at the   release  of  her second  single, title ”Reign”, a contemporary worship song  come Monday 18th October 2021.

Receiving the items on behalf of Father’s Home Ministry, Janet Anderson, a parent at the children’s home expressed gratitude and for the love and kind gesture of Efua Black and friends in considering to celebrate her birthday in the home since she could have chosen to mark it at any place of her choice.

 

She thanked the team and prayed for God to replenish anything that had been lost through the sacrifice to put smiles on the faces of the children.

The Father’s Home Care Ministry currently has 100 children who are being catered for with some in primary, Junior, and Senior High school as well as others in numerous Tertiary Institutions across the country.

Published

on

WorldRemit has issued a statement following a warning from the Bank of Ghana for the general public to be wary of a money-doubling scheme operating in Ghana under the pseudo name “Worldremit”, saying, the scheme is fraudulent and does not reward investors as promised.

The Central Bank made it clear that, this fraudulent scheme is distinct from the globally renowned Fintech, “WorldRemit” which is in the business of international fund transfers.  WorldRemit has since issued an official  statement on its website concerning the matter, as follows:

Dear WorldRemit partner,

We’re aware of recent fraudulent attempts to impersonate our brand online in Ghana – using our name or pseudonyms like Worldremit or World Remit.

We aim to be ever-vigilant in our approach to cybersecurity and fraud prevention measures, and do our best to shut down these sorts of attempts when we see them. The reality is that there are many fraudsters on the lookout to scam customers out of their money or personal details. This is not unique to us, but is a very common tactic used by unscrupulous people who target our industry.

Ways we minimise the impact of fraudsters:

1. Educate our customers on security measures, including our most recently published Security Guide, which you can find online here: http://wrem.it/security
2. Report and remove fraudulent accounts that are active on the various social media sites where we operate
3. Only ever use secure connections through our website and app, which use a bespoke, in-house machine learning model to protect against fraud
4. Utilise a bounty programme which pays white hat hackers to find vulnerabilities in our system to then be patched and secured immediately
5. Implement next generation antivirus to keep our system secure from any fraudulent attempts to access our systems internally
6. Adhering to PCIDSS compliance to protect all cardholder data

As always, we seek to keep our customers safe from all online scams where our service is concerned. Some simple steps we would urge our audience in Ghana to adhere to are:

  1. Check that they are visiting our official website www.worldremit.com (you will see a secure lock pad in the browser window next to our URL).
  2. Check that you are downloading our official WorldRemit app before making any transactions. We will never ask for your personal details over our social media sites in a public forum, such as full name, address or bank details. We take your safety very seriously and request that if you do see any instances of people acting fraudulently that you join us in reporting them on whichever channel they appear.

Thank you for your help in this matter,

Your WorldRemit team

Top YouTube Analytics Essential to Grow Your Channel

Published

on

Having a successful channel is more than growing views and subscribers. There are a lot of factors that come into play when analyzing your channel’s growth. In addition to view and subscriber count, strategizing with more metrics in mind provides the transparency you need to grow your channel.

It can feel overwhelming and like a foreign language, but Promolta has broken down the analytics you need to watch to create more successful videos and in turn, grow your channel!

1. Pay Attention to Impressions

Impressions are the number of times your video’s thumbnail appeared on a user’s screen. This is a great metric to see how visible your videos are on the platform and where users are more likely to see them.

To dig a little deeper, the impression click-through rate shows the number of people who clicked on your video from just seeing your thumbnail. This helps you determine which thumbnails and titles work for pulling in views. And not just views, comparing this metric with average view duration lets you see how long people watch your video. Having a high impression click-through rate and high average view duration means users are responding well to your thumbnail and title and are interested in your content.

2. Keep Up with Watch Times

It’s just as important to keep track of views as it is to keep track of watch times. Watch time is the number of minutes your viewers have spent watching your content. Identifying which videos gain the most watch time can help you determine what content your audience prefers. This metric is key to gain more visibility as the YouTube algorithm pushes videos with high watch times and engagement.

3. Examine your Audience Retention

Similar to average view duration, audience retention shows how long your viewers are watching and when they stop. It also shows specific times in the video that your viewers engaged with most. This metric allows you to break down your video second by second and discover key moments that pulled in your viewers. This is useful information to keep in mind when you create your videos.

4. Identify Your Traffic Sources

Identifying where you pull in your viewers from is important to help you bring in more. Traffic sources are where on YouTube your viewers click on your videos and what external sites they come from. Keeping track of your traffic sources can help you strategize marketing for those top sources and bring in more viewers.

5. Learn Where Your Videos Are Being Shared

Similar to traffic sources, you want to know where your videos are being shared. Looking at the sharing service metric lets you see what social media sites your video is being shared to and where your video is being embedded. This is essential to create more shareable content for your viewers, pull in more views from external sources to grow your channel.

6. Discover What Devices Your Viewers Uses

What device your viewers are using can influence what videos they watch. Looking at the device type metric will show you where most of your views come from. Mobile users might be more inclined to watch shorter content while computer users might apt for longer videos and playlists. With this data, you can optimize your content for the device type most viewers use and pull in more engagement.

7. Study Your Card Click-Through Rates

Card click-through rates measure the percentage of viewers who click on your cards. It can also show which type of cards your viewers prefer. Analyzing this metric can guide you to identify your most engaging cards and even the best timing and placement. You can use this data to implement engaging cards into all your videos helping bring in more views and subscribers.

Learning about your viewers is vital to learning how to keep your viewers and gain more. While there is a litany of metrics available, these core analytics are always relevant no matter how big your following grows.
