Ameyaw Debrah tells his Love story and how he met his better half.

love at 35, daddy at 36, hubby at 37

The last 3 years of my life have been exciting because I allowed myself to escape the comfort of hiding at home and my work to find love.

It came when I wasn’t expecting it, but at a time that I needed it. I was getting tired of doing the same thing over and over again; for although I loved it, it sometimes became lonely. And although I love the tranquillity and peace in loneliness, turning 35 was a good milestone to reflect over my life.

Darkoa was amongst the 35 family and friends I had selected to celebrate my 35th birthday with me over a dinner.

She was visiting Ghana for the first time since I started talking to her. The first memory I have of her was in May 2016 when I was in France, attending the Cannes film festival.

She had called, (through WhatsApp I think) to enquire about the services of an MC for a wedding. I told her I don’t do such but due to my work I could suggest someone for her. Few days later she called again to thank me although they couldn’t use the person I has suggested for the MC job.

She drew a likeness for me and I her. And for some reasons although I typically hate chatting on WhatsApp with people I don’t know in real life, I became fond of her and gave her a lot more time than I give others.

We became buddies and as the universe would have it, she was meant to come to Ghana in the month of my birthday.

She surprised me with some pre_birthday gifts when she arrived in town. And when my birthday was due, I invited her to join my family and friends for dinner. And offer she refused initially but later called to accept.

The biggest dinner happened and there were a few more dinners later. And before she left Ghana, it was clear that we had some sparks.

So we continued exploring our friendship farther apart. But day in day out, we drew closer despite the distance. We would talk at odd hours due to the time difference about important and nor so important stuff.

GOSPEL SINGER SARAH SARKODIE SHARES HER TESTIMONY

At a time when there are several prophecies in the media coming from men of God and some of them are shrouded in doubts, fast rising Gospel Singer, Sarah Sarkodie has a different opinion on prophecies.

Sarah has revealed that before she started her music career, a pastor prophesied that she would become a musician and sing to the world one day and it has come become a reality.

She shared her story.

“My musical carrier started when a prophecy came through one of our senior prophet (James Boadu). This man had this prophecy when I was 16 years of age.  Well to elaborate on how this prophecy came, we had a big crusade in my hometown (Offinso).

During the crusade he called me as well as my mother, then he conducted 7 pastor and 7 elders to stand around both of us.  And all that he said was that God has me a great voice to sing.  He continued to say that God has ordained me to send gospel music to the world.  The men later prophesy that an important sign need to be done for me.  To be more specific my mother was also a singer of all time and she was told to accept the fact that God want to take her the way she sing to add up to mine.  Precisely she agreed that the sign should be done for me.  And the prophet delivered me, made the sign.

After years, I got married and my husband moved us to Accra.  So a time came when I started hearing voices singing to me and of how to compose music.  It even became so clear that I see songs written on a wall for me to write it down.

This voice occur irrespectively wherever I found myself even when am in the bathhouse.  One faithful day I was in the bathhouse when I heard this voice again wanting me to write a song down and frankly speaking I neglected the voice, which I decided to finish bathing.  I heard the voice again asking me to write the song down other than that I may forget it but still I neglected it.  Instantly my sponge fell, and bowing down to pick it up a cane from no where whipped my back hardly, so I ran out to put the song down, coming out my mother asked me that why am I out with this soupy water on me.

Quietly I by pass her with immediate effect to write the song down.  My mother in a haste followed up to ask me what’s going on, so I explain to her the voices of song I have been hearing and wanting me to write it down and as well as visions.  Immediately she knelt down to glorify God and gave thanks for letting this prophesy come true. I realize that the prophecy Opanyin James Boadu prophesy on me has come to pass, well this how my whole music carrier started”, she shared her story.

Sarah Sarkodie who is now making waves is currently out with a single “Onyame Wo So” from her album titled “Osoro Akasa”.

VICTORIA LEBENE SLAMS #FEARKILLSDREAMS CAMPAIGN

Actress/Model, Victoria Lebene has slammed an on going social media campaign on fear #FearKillsDreams.

The campaign which seeks to bring to the fore how people live their lives in the shadow of their fears and how they can face their fear enable them accomplish their full potential, features some of Ghana’s leading known personalities such as Nana Aba Anamoah, Kofi Okyere Darko, Brommon, Jon Germain, Samini, Edem, Kemini Amanor and Fiifi Coleman speaking to their individual definitions of fear and what it does to us.

However, Victoria Lebene seem to disagree with the initiators of the #FearKillsDreams because she believes it is people who kill dreams and not fear as the campaign seek to project.

She expressed her opinion about the on going fear campaign via her Instagram.

Read her post unedited below:

“Dedicating this article to some of the young talents in the Creative arts industry and in Ghana as a whole. 

I stand against the notion that fear kills dreams. Yes it’s true that fear is the unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger. Unfortunately, negative thoughts and self-doubt breeds negativity. Inferiority complex, low self-esteem, lack of confidence and a lot more. All these are contributing factors to fear but the question is where are all these being derived from?

 There are tons of women out there who are one way or the other frustrated, they have poured out energies to no good, they’ve tried seeking platforms where they could execute their talents and aspirations but hardly do they get the chance. Fraustration out of these canker of #SexForJobs #SexForGrades #SexForRoles #SexforEverything. Some authorities that would want sex while they seek platforms to exhibit talents or jobs to better themselves.

 I’ve had series of messages through my media platforms of young ladies and their encounter with men asking for help to bring forth their modeling or acting career and some who are even ready to work with me as helps in my house. Look at some young ladies going all out in bikini and semi nude shoots, going out for auditions, meeting with agency casting calls, sleeping in music studios and so forth. Do you ever think they are fearful? Do you think if they were that scared, afraid, they would ever dare to? It’s simply because they do not have the right platforms to exhibit, practice and execute their thoughts and capabilities.

I think it’s high time we embraced talents from all angles, appreciate young talents and crafts, accept people the way they are and help in bettering them even if they have flaws and stop focusing on fear, fear has noting to do with dreams unless there is no hope to live that Dream. 

I am standing in for the youth in this country that have somehow tried their best to pursue their dreams and had no opportunity even when they tried. Let’s kill the causes of all dream killers and rather advocate for #dreamkillsfear It is people that kill dreams, not ‘ fear ‘Young generations need genuine help without no strings attached!”
