Upclose With Rosebird Ama Dadzie, Lady Who Draws In Ghana.

1 comment

Friday, August 30, 2019

The art industry in Ghana seems like a field well dominated by men but today I present to you a lady who is thriving in this field.

 Rosebird Ama Dadzie is a 27 years old  portrait artist  who hails from Adidome but resides at Adjei kojo, Tema west.

In an exclusive interview with her online,when asked why she chose Art she said:
"I chose Art because of the passion I have and I also believe that it's a God given talent"

Rosebird Ama Dadzie is the CEO of Roben Art  and a product of Takoradi technical University.
She had her Junior high education at Bennett Caulley memorial school and her secondly education at Ashaiman Senior High.

One of her works which caught my attention on social media is a portrait of an old man wearing a spectacle. 

According to her this drawing is a challenge she took on herself and the first charcoal work she has made. 
She only specialised in Graphite.

The  portrait drawing alone supersedes most artworks by the opposite gender in the Artistry field.

Rosebird later disclosed that her brand "Roben" art is a joint brand and the name was composed out of their first names which is Rosebird  and Eben.
She is a Portrait artist and Eben is a Graphic Designer.

Ghana is renowned for producing the best African arts and crafts yet in Ghana, the creative arts sector is treated with disdain and as second fiddle.

Through the interview I asked her what she thinks about it and what measures does she think when put in place would revive our creative arts industry. 

She said : 
"Hmmmm it's very bad...what I think we should put in place is that:
we should have art Academy...
Also employ teachers who are really into art and have the passion for art...
Why do I say that?.. most of the teachers that are in the art school were not even art students.
 They only read and go to class the following day to teach, so they can't even the take the students through practicals...

We should also invest more in promoting art...
And also have a day the we can say we are celebrating art in Ghana...that involves awarding artist to encourage them in what they are doing..."

This is  something really affecting our creative arts industry in Ghana and shouldn't be overlooked.
The creative arts industry deserves recognition, respect and value since it also contributes to the Ghanaian Economy and is one of the major source of livelihood for most people. 

Rosebird has worked on numerous commissioned  portraits.
Her hyperrealistic artworks are highly recommended as the best for any festivities.

I sold Second Hand Clothes - Celestine Donkor


Monday, August 26, 2019

Ghanaian Gospel Music sensation Celestine Donkor on Breakfast live this morning disclosed that her music career started as a result of escorting her friend to the studio who was going to record her song. 

"My friend was in the studio recording whiles I was at the reception humming along without knowing that the sound engineer was paying close attention to me. 
So after my friends recording, the sound engineer called me and said "would you like to record? I think you sound very good" and I was like really? That would be great" - she said

Celestine Donkor is one of the gospel acts whose story inspires me. 
I quite recall  that she even claimed of eating human feaces (excreta) as a result of an orchestration by her senior househelp way back before she came into the limelight.

The question that comes into my mind now  is "Where is this Senior house help and what was her reaction after seeing  the New Celestine Donkor?"
Where are we taking this world to with such wickedness.

Celestine Donkor also disclosed that she sold Second hand clothes and other food stuffs at a point in time in her life.

In her words of encouragement to people who are facing challenges she said " I would say that whatever you are in or whatever position you are is a very important part of your life and everything you are going through is God's deliberate plan to carve your life" 

If you are a great fan of her or ready for a heck of an experience don't forget that her eight edition of Celestial praise concert is coming on 29th September 2019 at Victory Bible Church international, Awoshie Baahyard. Be there.

This was as a result of a mandatory title fight order by IBF between defending champion Richard Commey and the unbeaten number one contender Tefimo Lopez.

Teofimo Andres Lopez Rivera is a Honduran- American professional boxer in the lightweight division who won his spot against Richard Commey after he went 12 rounds in the first time of his career and much tougher against  Japan's Masayoshi Nakatani in an IBF final eliminator.

After the contest was fixed the two professional boxers have declared promises to their fans.

Richard Commey twitted: @TeofimoLopez "Beat my ass" I don't think so! @trboxing when's the date? The fans are waiting and so am i.

Teofimo Lopez 19 hours ago on Twitter also followed up with a tweet: Things are going to be different this time around..#TheComeUp

This contest is to be held this year and I can't wait for the outcome of this match lol. As a Ghanian I have great hopes with much support for Richard Commey.

Ebola is a virus that causes  severe bleeding, organ failure and can lead to death.
 The virus can be spread by Humans through  bodily fluids such as blood and many more. 

Scientists for quite some time now have been  working on finding a cure to this killer disease  since the first epidemic outbreak in remote villages in  Central Africa near the Tropical rainforest despite the virus first discovery in 1976.

Today in DR Congo, Scientists finally discovered two out of four drugs which have proven to be effective at reducing the death rates after been tested. 

According to World Health Organisation and US National Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which was a co sponser of the trial, the drugs discovered which are two monoclonal antibodies are more effective more than the previous drugs ZMapp and Remdesivir.

Prof Jean-Jacques Muyembe, Director-General of the Institute National de Recherche Biomédicale in Dominican Republic of Congo, stated that , “From now on, we will no longer say that Ebola is incurable'.

Now 90% of their patients can walk into the center and come out completely cured. They will start believing it and building trust in the population and community,” he said.

Speaking on the new discovery, Dr Jeremy Farrar, Director of Wellcome and the co-chair of the WHO Ebola therapeutics group, also said  that the trial, which is the first-ever multi-drug randomised trial for Ebola, has happened despite such highly complex and challenging circumstance.

Over speeding Causes Accident At Afienya.

Thursday, August 8, 2019

Misintepretation of Road signs can lead to accidents but over speeding just like its been said " Satan was once Gods servant" is a serious manipulator of road accidents.

Earlier today,VolumeGh received reports on an accident which happened on the Afienya road at the Emmanuel estate junction.

According to Kojo Arhin who reported the issue to VolumeGh , he said the accident was caused by a kia truck which was over speeding.

KIA Truck

He went further on to elaborate on the issue that a saloon car heading to Akosombo decided to stop to allow some children to cross safely not knowing the kia truck which was heading to tema was coming with high speed and due to its inability to stop at that moment had to branch to the other junction  destroying a mobile phone shop but the mobile money agent was safe.

Another kia truck that was also following branched to the same direction upon seeing what was at stake.
Both drivers got injured as well as a man who was standing at the junction waiting to pick a trosky.
They were quickly rushed to the hospital.

For now we don't know the state of the driver's and the man's condition. Stay in touch with us. Would keep you updated.

Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Lloyd Konadu (Dancegod llyod)

The Entertainment Industry of Ghana, a West African country has not only  witness much recognition in the world with Multiple Grammy Award winning  singer Beyonce featuring Shatawale on Already song which is already making waves internationally.

Dancegod lloyd's dance version of the Already dance challenge ends up on Beyonce's story.
Llyod konadu popularly known as Dancegod llyod is a professional dancer,choreographer, dance coach and co founder of Dance with a Purpose Academy.

He is one of the amazing talents who didn't give up on his dream in times where Dance wasnt accepted in Ghana for business and was rather noticed as a hobby.
He was recently even featured on BBC.

Upon seeing his video getting that much recognition he took to his Twitter page and said if he gets featured on one of Beyonce's video he would make much noise more than the artist she features.

This shows how excited  he would be.
We pray it happens. Anything is possible with God you know. Not even Shatawale believed he was going to get featured by Beyonce Soo soon.

In one of his recent tweets he also stated it was time for Beyonce to meet him which was retweeted by Ghana's own singer Deborah Vanessa who gave him hope that Beyonce would even pay him to dance in her music video or on stage with her.

Ava Duvernay, the director and Creator of the popular Netflix show " When they see us" also tweets that she has watched all the Already Dance videos and is enjoying herself with Dancegod llyods video.

Essence which is a popular brand in the African American community has also joined with a retweet of Dancegod llyod's video with a caption "When you realize tomorrow is Friday #lionking.
All the  retweets had not only put a smile on the talented dancers face but had also given hope to some youths  to never give up on their dreams despite whatever happens in life. This is a bit of what his legacy has always been about.

As a blogger with much love for the entertainment industry and a great fan of this amazing dancer , I pray this actually happens.
