GHANA, WHAT’S ON AMY’S MIND? Ghana Fashion Train

10 May

While I was in Ghana visiting family, there were two events I attended which have not really been mentioned anywhere on the internet, so I want to use today’s “GHANA , WHAT’S ON AMY’S MIND?” space to talk about the Ghana Fashion Train show.

On March 26, 2011, I was invited to the Ghana Fashion Train show, held at the Trade Fair, Pavillion A , in Accra Ghana. This was my first time attending a fashion show in Ghana so I was quite curious to see what awaited me and quite honored to have been invited. Although I got to the fashion show late, based on the starting time, I was actually quite early because it unsurprisingly did not start on time. When the Ghana Fashion Train got “moving”, I was happy to hop on-board. The stage and set up of the Ghana Fashion Train show was quite lovely. I do not know who made the stage designs, but the person who did it is quite talented. The stage was set up to look like a train and the models came out of the “train” to show off their designs per designer. The room was packed with guests and model scouts and different media houses , including the one and only Talk of Ghana’s Nana Boakye (who I mistakenly met while looking for an outlet to charge my mobile cell phone). Ghana is a beautiful country where you see beautiful people each and every day, but it was nice to see “professional” models up on stage representing African fashion—everything from shoes to traditional wear. The models, both female and male, did their best to focus on the cameras, but every now and then, they would lose their concentration and start laughing. Hey, they are human beings—not robots. The Ghana Fashion Train included several intermissions. Some of the designers present at Ghana Fashion Train were Mimi (from Big Brother Africa) with her Divalish line (She also performed at the show), along with other designers. There is never a dull moment in Ghana, and the Ghana Fashion Train was no exception. The models for the Ghana Fashion Train show were provided by Exotic Models and Exopa, and some of the crowd favorites like Lord and Zion definitely did not disappoint.. Keep up the good work Ghana.

GHANA, WHAT’S ON AMY’S MIND? – OBOUR APPRECIATION DINNER

OBOUR APPRECIATION DINNER

While I was in Ghana visiting family, there were two events I attended which have not really been mentioned anywhere on the internet, so I want to use today’s “GHANA , WHAT’S ON AMY’S MIND? space to talk about the Obour Citizen Appreciation Dinner.

On March 19,2011 , the world reknown artist, Obour, held a fine elaborate appreciation dinner at the one and only Citizen Kofi in Osu, Ghana. The event was a fine celebration, recognizing all the media outlets and media representatives who have believed in Obour during the past 10 years. The dinner was a celebratory event, not only for thanking the media, but for celebrating Obour’s Decade of Music and future endeavors. With such hits as Konkontibaa, President Obour, Shine Ur Eyes, and collaborations like Juliana, Obour has no intentions of slowing down. Time waits for no man, and Obour is currently working on a new album entitled “Back to Obour”. The recognition dinner was interlaced with speeches from prominent business figures, radio presenters, and live performances from Obour. Obour used his live performance as a driving mechanism, performing well known songs from the past to take the audience on a journey through the music of Obour. By the time the “drive” was over, no one was sitting down-everyone was up and dancing as if they were at a night club. The appreciation dinner was a fine event because at the end of the day, it was about everyone appreciating everyone. The after party, which took place at the same place, Citizen Kofi, was a fine gathering as well. Obour gave more live performances and the co-star of his “I am Single” video, Leoni, gave a live performance of her song ” Enter My Heart”. Obour never disappoints and I can not wait to hear the future hits off of the “Back to Obour” album.

BEAUTY REVIEW: Dark and Lovely Lotion

6 May

BEAUTY REVIEW: Dark and Lovely Body Lotion I just started this Blog, and not only will it focus on Music and Entertainment, but I think Beauty is important as well. Who doesn’t want to look beautiful and smell good?!?!? So together with the AFROMUSION site, I will also review Beauty Products since we all know that AFRICA is a HUGE continent and there are MILLIONS of AFRICANS around the world who buy products just like the rest of the world. Well, why should you wonder about a product when I can take all the guessing work out for you.

Today, for my first ever Beauty Product review, I will be discussing SOFTSHEEN-CARSON’s Dark and Lovely Body Lotion. If you are an African like me, when you hear “Dark and Lovely”, you think perm, hair perms, beautiful black woman on a box. At least that’s what I always think. Needless to say, you can imagine my surprise and confusion when I was in Kumasi , Ghana, at the Continental Store near the KNUST campus, and came across this lotion. That’s right, SOFT SHEEN CARSON has a product referred to as the “Dark and Lovely Body Lotion – Even Radiance”, and the bottle I got is in the Unifying Lemon scent. When I saw this bottle of lotion, I was quite amused and curious, so I bought it.

As soon as I got home, I poured some lotion into my hands. ‘Dark and Lovely makes lotion? Since when??’, I asked myself. As I smoothed the lotion against my dark and lovely skin, my senses were overwhelmed by the fragrance of the Unifying Lemon scent. I have never in my life seen Dark and Lovely lotion- ever. I definitely have NEVER seen it in the U.S of A. But you know what? This lotion is absolutely amazing!! If I had known this lotion would be so amazing, I would have bought the whole shelf while I was in Kumasi, Ghana. I will not be going back to Ghana anytime soon, so I must conserve my Dark and Lovely lotion. However, if anyone is in Kumasi, Ghana, make sure you try to get some – better yet, can you send me some?. Ladies- this lotion is amazing. Gentlemen—this would make a great gift for your lady. All in all, I love the Dark and Lovely Body Even Radiance lotion, and I highly recommend it to any and every one.
