Over the week, Lead Pastor of the RockHill Church, Sonnie Badu has been on the trends of social media after news broke that he has been awarded three new different degrees in the space of four months.

The singer-songwriter announced that he had been awarded a Bachelors degree in Ministry, Masters degree in Christian leadership and a Doctorate in Musicology.

His announcement came as a shock to social media users who can not fathom how he was able to study for three different degrees in the space of four months.

Reacting to the comments in a video, the Singer and Preacher indicated that he is where he is today because he has worked so hard to achieve whatever that is coming his way.

“Those who understand it better, they get it better. The reason why I am where I am and achieved so much and I say this with a lot of pride because I have worked very hard. Still working very hard, still writing, this year I am to write 12 books but I changed any mind to make it twenty-four books so still building is because its very important that in life we learn from those who have gone ahead of us in life,” Sonnie is heard saying in the video.

He continued;

“A little advice to the youth, learn from people who have worked hard. Trying to trend out of somebody’s handwork is not the right way to go if we want Africa to move forward, if we want Africa to do well then we have to work very hard. When you see somebody doing well, you push them you support them  forward you push them because you never know when you are going to need them, especially those from my country Ghana.

“I don’t have a problem if somebody comes up to me to explain but when somebody goes out, misquote you, I don’t back out you know me, I roar back those doing this be careful it’s not anybody you play with, I am actually working on my PhD on Theology as well, I am done with Philosophy I am doing my Theology, I just don’t come out to tell the world this is what I am studying. But if you see me you know this man is a very educated man.

“When I started ministry some of you were students in school, Senior High, Junior High, whatever but today internet gives you strength to go on to talk. I don’t even know how old they are, have the audacity to disrespect and others are jumping, it doesn’t move me, it doesn’t touch me because I know their mindset that’s why I don’t live there, I know the mindset of my people.”

Showmax calls for pitches for 10 live action films from first-time African filmmakers

Published

output.auto
On the opening day of The Joburg Film Festival, Showmax released an open commissioning brief to the African film industry calling for pitches for a slate of 10 live action films.
The African streamer has won the South African Film and Television Awards’ Made-for-TV Movie Award for two years in a row, first with Loving Thokoza and then with Boxing Day, the first two feature films from Mandla N. In addition, another Showmax film, Kelsey Egan’s debut feature, Glasshouse, was the most awarded feature film overall at the SAFTAs last year, with five Golden Horns.
The new brief, in partnership with the Joburg Film Festival, is aimed at finding new talent and opening up the industry. The proposals must have a first draft screenplay and be set in contemporary Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria or South Africa, with a first-time director attached who is a resident or citizen in those countries. All official Ghanaian, Kenyan, Nigerian and South African languages are welcome and the final films should be more than 40m, in line with the SAFTAs Best Made-for-TV Movie Award category.
“Showmax’s audience prefers local content, with seven of the ten most streamed titles in South Africa, eight of the top 10 titles in Kenya and Nigeria, and nine of the top 10 in Ghana last year being African,” says Yolisa Phahle, CEO of Showmax and Connected Video at MultiChoice. “Making your first film is a key turning point in any director’s career. So this brief is another way we are trying to empower local filmmakers to tell their own stories for their own communities in their own languages. We’re looking for authentic stories that will resonate with our local audiences. Popular genres like romcoms, family dramas and thrillers are always welcome.”
Submissions are now open on https://submissions.mnetcorporate.co.za/channel/showmax; entries close on 1 April 2023. The selected projects will be announced in the second half of 2023 and screened on Showmax in 50 countries across sub-Saharan Africa in 2024.
Pitches should take the form of a video pitch in English of no more than five minutes. This video pitch should include short bios of the writer, director and producer; a concise summary of the story, including the ending; an introduction to your lead characters; and a discussion of your chosen genre and stylistic approach, with visual references.
