Sandra AnkobiahTV presenter, model, actress and lawyer Sandra Ankobiah opened up to arts writer Francis Doku last Friday during the latter’s weekly interview of Ghanaian celebrities on social media site Twitter dubbed #FridayTwitterview. The interview covered several areas including Ankobiah’s career, her aspirations for the year 2014 and her ideal man.

Francis: Hi Sandra how are you today and how is 2014 treating you?

Sandra: Hi!!! I’m fantastic! Happy New Year!! 2014…Hmm so far, so good.

Francis: Did you make any resolutions for the year?

Sandra: I did. I made two. The first is to be better with my time management (I’m almost always late!). The second was to pray that all my aspirations and goals are fulfilled.

Francis: hahaha…I can relate to that. Let’s dwell on the mood of the country for a moment. What do you have to say about Dumor?

Sandra: I’m deeply saddened that we have lost such a gem. I admired him for his eloquence. His diction was impeccable. May he RIP.

Francis: Tell me about how you found yourself in the media? Or did the media find you?

Sandra: I think it started off with the TV show, Fashion 101.

Francis: How did that start? What motivated Fashion 101?

Sandra: I was inspired by the E’s Fashion Police show and of course my passion for fashion.

Francis: Tell me about fashion. Do you think we are getting it right or we are nowhere close?

Sandra: I think we get better every day. We learn every day. As with anything else, it’s a learning process. Our fashion industry is a burgeoning one. Still in its nurturing stages. But we have come a long way in the last few years.

Francis: Have you abandoned Fashion 101 for New Day?

Sandra: New Day is not a replacement for Fashion 101. Indeed they are different brands and concepts with completely different demographics. But in all honesty, I’ve decided to move on to my first love which is the Law. I studied Law for a reason. And that is to help people and make a difference. People are languishing in our prisons because they do not have access to legal representation. Legal representation is a constitutional right of every Ghanaian. Some just can’t afford it, but it doesn’t mean they should be denied justice. Some things are just more important than others. So when I weighed Fashion 101 and offering legal aid, the scale just tipped in favour of offering legal aid.

Francis: To recap, you’ll continue to present New Day, you will go off Fashion 101 and you will go into legal practice more in 2014?

Sandra: Exactly. Joining an organisation to offer free legal services. Details soon.

Francis: Thank you. Tell me Sandra, are you in a relationship at the moment?

Sandra: No I’m not.

Francis: Why are you not? Not enough good men out there? The good ones are taken? Not interested or not ready?

Sandra: I LOVE love. I just haven’t found my Adam. If he’s out there, please let him know I’m looking for him.

Francis: How would he know? What are your benchmark qualities? Good looks and manners? Money and looks? Money?

Sandra: Someone I can talk to and laugh with all night long. He has to be ambitious, compassionate, and we must connect on a magical level. It’s unexplainable. It’s a feeling. Indescribable! He must be tall.

Francis: Good to know. Back to TV3, how does it feel hosting a morning show with the team? I feel it’s crowded.

Sandra: I love the show. I learn a lot from the various segments. The team is great and we work together well. The only time you see all four of us together is when we introduce the show and when we wrap up.

Francis: You want to clear the air on that friendship brouhaha the press has raised between you and Yvonne Nelson?

Sandra: Oooohhh Francis! Are we still on that? It’s 2014!

Francis: Are you friends? Were you friends? What’s the big deal either?

Sandra: We are cool. I’ve said it so many times, I’m beginning to sound like a broken record. There’s absolutely no story there. I’m glad you mentioned that it’s the press that raised all the brouhaha.

Francis: Cool. To conclude, what would be Sandra Ankobiah’s legacy in broadcasting, showbiz and law?

Sandra: That the world was a better place because I made an impact in the life of one person.

Francis: Thank you for your time and answers, Sandra.

Sandra: My pleasure. Enjoyed it. Many thanks.

IMG 20221115 WA0041

THE line-up of events and international artistes coming to Ghana this December keeps getting exciting and the latest to join is Jamaican singer, poetess and actress, Dianna Wright.
The US based artiste will be in Accra to shoot the video of her trending song, Ahoo and also participate in events to mark the festive season.

The song is already being played on some radio stations in Ghana and Jamaica and Dianna who is signed to 16-Bars Multimedia LLC, hopes to cement its popularity with the video which will be shot in a village setting in Ghana.

While here, she is also open to shows and collaborations with local artistes and bands.

Dianna who was part of acts for the Hands Across Africa concert held at the National Theatre in July said she selected Ghana to shoot the video for the love she has for the country.

“When I come to Ghana, it’s just like home, Ghana is a bigger Jamaica. I love how the people dance with so much energy. I will feature some young and talented dancers in my video. I love the newness, vibe and energy anytime I am there.

“For the video, I want a natural setting and it was Ghana that first came to mind, the unique and serene villages in Ghana is the kind of vibe I am looking for,” she said.

With the exception of her engineer and a couple of her team members, Dianna will use Ghanaian based creatives for her production saying, “there is no point flying in many professionals as Ghana has them in abundance. There are so many talents here who can help us execute this project perfectly”, she added.

As a way of giving back to the Ghanaian society, she adopted the drama troupe of the Manya Krobo Senior High School and supports the group regularly.

Orente Official Cover

Philip NeeWhang is set to release yet another sensational new song titled “Orente”. The single which transforms Dany Starking’s original – Orente released in 2022 has been made over again with a fresh new breath and vocal from the sensational musical artist – Philip NeeWhang. Orente is a song that is sure to burst your brains with its smooth and melodic romantic afrobeat vibes much desired in today’s music market.

When asked what influenced Philip NeeWhang to do a cover of the song and re-release it under his vocals, he stated “The first time I listened to the song, it transported me to a different realm, I felt good, I loved the song, I did not even think I would be doing a cover on it but then I kept singing it over and over and over and then I realized, – I need to pick on this challenge and do my very first cover song and which better song than this new track which has just struck me in the heart”. The original track is one released by Dany Starking, a Nigerian musical artiste presently based in Ghana.

The song which was largely sung in English heavily uses the ‘broken’ Nigerian pronunciation style of speech and uses some native Yoruba words within its lyrical flow shockingly, Philip NeeWhang stays true to the song’s lyrics and style, often diverting to his vocal pitch as slight differences can be observed in the version released by Dany Starking and the one by Philip NeeWhang – You need to hear how the Ghanaian Musical Artist loses himself to the lyrics singing it so beautifully and true to its core, it baffles the brain.

The original as covered by Philip NeeWhang shockingly is produced, mixed, and mastered by the same sound engineer – King Kueyx under CockaStudiox who worked on Dany Starking’s original giving immerse room for improvement on the cover by Philip. Philip NeeWhang who has been hailed as the next big hit in Ghana you need to watch out for and aiming for international status has already earned 19 original songs released to his credit inclusive of Two (2) EPs which contain four (4) tracks each.
