Finding Mbuyisa Makhubu

Get out, Beyonce. Go.

I’m not the hugest Beyonce fan, nor do I completely buy into her image as a feminist but this article made interesting reading.

Happy Birthday Iman! Can you believe this fashion legend is 59 years old today? This photo was taken by the great Francesco Scavullo in 1977.

I have felt first-hand the very wrath of the Turkish ice-cream man.

I haven’t been this impressed in a while.

Only in Gh - "Dead" man attends own wake keeping.

There isn’t much to say about this typically odd Gh story except that I suspect that certain aspects of this story are deeply rooted in the fact that we Ghanaians love a good funeral……

The world is talking about Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama

This is the work of Ibrahim Mahama, the young Ghanaian artist creating radical public artworks from an everyday material - old jute cloth sacks. Many of these bags were initially used to transport cocoa. They are covered in markings that tell the story of what they once contained and where they’ve been.

Writer Asha Hai had this to say about Ibrahim’s work.

"Like the flayed skin of some doomed, giant creature, Ibrahim Mahama’s stitched-together coal sacks drape over the gallery walls, spilling on to the floor. The 27-year-old Ghanaian artist recycles simple jute sacks, imported by Ghana Cocoa Board and later used by charcoal sellers, to make sombre, viscerally powerful environments, which are usually displayed outdoors – in market places and public squares. There’s a palbable sense of wear-and-tear in Mahama’s patched-up and grubby surfaces. These are the battle-worn scars of supply and demand writ large. It’s hard-knocks installation art at its very best."

This installation was also exhibited at last year’s CHALE WOTE STREET ART FESTIVAL in Accra .His work is currently on exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London.

BBC Global Beats: Ghana 2014

DJ Rita Ray recently travelled to Ghana to interview and record live music sessions with some of the country’s most exciting talent - Yaa Pono, King Ayisoba, Cwesi Oteng, Nana Yaa, Kyekyeku, Wiyaala and Efya.

Yaa Pono performed the rock track - “I Dey Feel You Die.”lobal

Now this is the track Ghana has been waiting for - @Sarkodie & Yaa Pono (@ponobiom) together at long last on one commercial track.  

You don’t necessarily need to understand Twi to appreciate the sentiment of the song.  The beat is supplied by reknowned producer, Lil Shaker (@lil_shaker).  Enjoy!

ponobiom:

Chale, last one!  Lol.

Sark, Lil Shaker on me on one beat! “Talk of Gh”  Badness!!  Uptown Energy
