The Week Before The Holy Week
Next week is the holy week. It starts with Palm Sunday through to Holy Saturday. Holy week is the week preceding Easter that is the last week of Lent. This week has been very eventful. It has kept me from blogging and getting on twitter like I would have wished. It started with getting a call for an interview in Accra on Thursday. My first thoughts were, one day we would do interviews over the...

Vodafone Ghana: Repeating The Mistakes Of GT...
Some weeks back, I grew tired of waiting for Glo Mobile Ghana to launch and the Glo-1 cable to go live and on the advice of a friend, I decided to get Vodafone Broadband at home. So on the 24th of Februay 2010, I went in to Vodafone Ghana’s Sunyani office to put in my application. It was a Wednesday and they indicated that they would have someone come do a site survey by the close of the...
Traditional/Customary Marriage NOT Engagement
Last night, a friend brought up an interesting topic. He was a little bit confused by Akan customary engagement & marriage and didn’t understand why people spent so much on money and emphasis is placed on western styled marriage ceremonies in Ghana.

Spartacus: Blood and Sand
About 2 months ago, I started watching this new TV series called Spartacus: Blood and Sand. After 8 episodes, I’m so in love with it. I just can’t wait to download a new episode every week. A word of caution; Spartacus is damn raw! It is rated TV-MA for graphic violence, strong sexual content and major profanity. It is the story of an unnamed Thracian (played by Andy Whitfield) who...

iTunes Moment: Ego Trippin'
There comes a time when there’s no good album out there to listen to. When this happens, you go through your library for a good old abulm to listen to or you just allow iTunes Genius or Shuffle to do the magic for you. Today, iTunes Genius Mixes did it for me. It pointed me to a song off one of my favourite 2008 albums and I just had to jump on the album. My Hip-Hop/Rap Mix pointed to Waste...
