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.

Abladzo Kwame changes name to “Kwame Ye”, drops promo photos to spark new journey

Published

on

Kwame Ye 4

Abladzo Kwame was a loud name for fans of Rap until the Rapper decided to go into hiatus and rebrand. He returns with a new name, Kwame Ye, and also shares new promotional photos to kick off his new found journey.

 

Follow him on his Social Media pages below:

Facebook – Kwame Ye (@KwameYeMusic)

Instagram, X – @KwameYeMusic

 

Stemming from a culture of hardcore hiphop and street rap, Kwame Ye, as he loves to be called in the showbiz circles is unapologetic about his style and presentation of rap culture.

 

Born as Klu Frank, he hails from the Volta Region of Ghana; but primarily grew up in Adenta, a suburb of Greater-Accra where he got inspired to start music as a hobby from childhood. With an unflinchingly real-life perspective, he would be found delivering rap with a gruff rasp influenced by  UK ‘Grime’ and ‘rusty’ beat compositions to fit his style of lyrics.

 

Kwame Ye is a co- founder of a music clique called Kings Capital Music Group (KCMG).

 

“I fell in love with art as the days crept, adding more years to my infant self; and while I grew up, my style and passion got influenced more by my peers and lovers of my music; this pushed me more to work more music, write more music, record more music and perform them as well across different stage. Music became a powerful tool for me to express myself effortlessly”, Kwame Ye intimated. He was formerly known as Abladzo Kwame, and would later pick Kwame ye as his newly found space after a new dawn of transformation and revitalisation.

 

“HipLife and Highlife were my foundation and first influences; both served as therapeutic sounds for me and led me into producing and writing my own music, and exploring other styles (genres)”, he added.

 

“I would say my style of music is a Fusion of Rap and Afro-Soul; and to keep my origins I use a lot of my native dialect, Ewe, for almost every song I churn out” –Kwame Ye.

 

Kwame Ye recorded his first song with Skillions (a Ghana-based music clique cum label) at their recording studio titled “Bossu”, featured on by Boynash, a London-based Ghanaian Rapper.

Kwame ye has scored some feats working with notable Ghanaian artistes like Edem, Gemini Orleans, Nektunez, just to name a few. He also doubles a Fashion Designer who pieces together all kinds of fabrics, creatively, as another form of gifted art.

His global influences? Kanye West, Akon, Lil Wayne, Da Hammer, Nektunez fall on his list of favourites he gets inspired by with their works.

This is How Chris Hughton and Gary Al-Smith voted on behalf of Ghana at FIFA Best 2023 Player Awards

Published

on

Gary Hughton 754x424 1

Lionel Messi picked up the Best Men’s Player award for the third time since this format of the awards began in 2016, after doing so in 2019 and 2022.

A mix of votes from national team managers and captains, journalists and fans on Fifa’s website – with each counting for 25% – were used to decide the winners.

For Ghana, this is how Black Stars coach Chris Hughton and Gary Al-Smith (representing the media) voted for the best player category.

Hughton voted Messi as his first choice, Mbappe in second while Haaland was given the third spot.

Al-Smith, however, opted for Haaland as the first option with City’s Rodri and Victor Osimhen following accordingly.

Messi and Haaland finished on the same points, with the former getting the award as he had more first-place nominations from national team captains.

The Argentina captain was named men’s player of the year at the 2023 Fifa Best Awards in London on Monday, January 15.

The Inter Miami forward beat competition from Manchester City striker Erling Haaland with Paris St-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe coming third.

He scored nine goals for PSG as they won the French Ligue 1 title and 10 goals in seven games as Inter Miami won the inaugural Leagues Cup in the United States.
