Published

on

Our Culture, our tradition, and our language are the foundations upon which we build our identity.

In recent times, Ghanaian culture has been one of the Ghanaian symbols which is fading away in the country.

When we say culture, culture is said to be the way people live in a particular environment. But here lies the case where culture is no more being relevant in the country (Ghana). This is simply because the youth of the country is now practicing the foreign culture rather than that of the countries.

Therefore, The Maiden Edition of Miss Culture Ghana pageant is designed to provide an opportunity for contestants to gain essential life skills such us confidence in front of large crowd and growing of self-esteem while projecting our rich Ghanaian Culture.

Again to encourage the youth to play an important role in the community by participating in developmental projects. However, the pageant will focus mainly on entrepreneurship and skills development. This is to empower the youth to build their entrepreneurial skills and capabilities.

The main aim of the contestants are to empower the youth, teach and encourage healthy living, self-confidence, creative accomplishment and community service.

In conclusion, MISS CULTURE GHANA will help the youth build a common interest in enhancing interpersonal skills, increasing self-confidence, heightening society awareness, and aspiring to excellence while aspiring through their examples.

EDEM EASES ANTICIPATION WITH ‘MOOD SWINGS’ PRE-ORDER LINK

Published

on




Ace rapper/singer-songwriter and head honcho of the Gbevunation has released the pre-order link for his much-anticipated “Mood Swings” EP

Growing up, the older generation was mandated with the sole duty of preparing the younger generation for the world ahead. How to navigate through the storms without being a liability to themselves and the world at large.

Parents made conscious efforts to inculcate some basic but strong principles in life of their children so it could guide them for the rest of their lives.

The story isn’t far from that of the illustrious Ghanaian musician, Edem, who is known mainly for his Rap competency and his proficiency with the local Ghanaian dialect, Ewe.

Also like most people, Edem shares an unbreakable bond with his late Mum with lessons taught him leaving an indelible mark in his life and his new EP, #MoodSwings.

In spite of their permanent connection, this is the first time Edem mentions his mum in his entire career as a celebrated Ghanaian Musician.

Over the years, the artiste has made his name and career in and out of Ghana with hit songs like “You Dey Craze” featuring notable multiple award-winning artistes Kwaw Kese and Sarkodie; “Nyedzilo” featuring Nigeria’s superstar Rekado Banks.

Not forgetting other hit songs like “I’m The One” featuring UK based Ghanaian Rapper, Sway, through “Koene”, “Bra Fremi Fremi”, “Gbevu”, “Over Again”, just to mention a few.

Speaking to Edem in an interview, the brilliant Musician clearly drew the line connecting these values from his mum taught him, using colours as reference on his yet to be release EP. He expressed that:

“MoodSwings is the various spaces I find myself creatively as an artiste and the various emotions that I find myself carrying at every point in time through my creativity.”

Stressing that “it also overlaps against the backdrop of me seeing life as colors and understanding that every mood is a different color which is something that I was raised on by mom. Letting me understand how to see life in colors and so it comes to bare on my music and my emotions towards the music.”

Beautifully representing each mood with a color, the songs on the EP, from “Love You”, “Kpo”, “Money”, “Efo Kojo”, “In Ghana” and “Chidi”, colourfully comes together as an embodiment of whom Edem is.

When asked which of the songs resonates with the teachings of his late mum, Edem recalled that “Each one of them because my mum didn’t say that a particular thing was or is what works in life, she said: it is all the colours that come together to get you to see the rainbow. The rainbow is a representation of the brighter side of life, and so synergy is in all the moods coming together.”

The world can also connect and explore their musical Mood Swings on all digital music platforms, which includes iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Deezer etc.
