PHOTOS: Shatta Wale’s ‘Reign’ Album launch at Fantasy Dome

Ghanaian dancehall Shatta Wale entertained over 15,000 patrons at the launch of his ‘Reign’ album on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at the Fantasy Dome, Trade Fair.

Though the Zylofon signed artiste was at the center of series of controversies ahead of the launch of his ‘Reign’ album on Saturday, he proved otherwise as he served audience with series of live band performances.

During the launch of his album, Shatta Wale responded to claim by Sarkodie that he wears ‘alumi chain.’

He challenged any fan of the latter to have a closer look at his chain, to determine its authenticity.

Wale’s assertion is that he could not have achieved anything including filling the event venue if he wore fake gold chains.

Minutes into his joint performance with the mother of his son, Shatta Michy at the launch of his ‘Reign’ album at the Fantasy Dome, Wale proclaimed his love for the former and asked her ‘one question.’

Photos: Wilmar Africa encourages cultivation of oil palm to meet production needs

ghana waves news


Wilmar Africa Ltd, producers of Frytol has encouraged both state and individuals to go into large-scale cultivation of oil palm.

Palm oil from Ghana which is the main source for producing Frytol accounts for only 30% of the company’s production needs.

The greater chunk of palm oil is sourced from other countries on the continent or beyond Africa to produce Frytol.

General Manager of Wilmar Africa Ltd, Kwame Wiafe made this revelation in an interview at the re-launch of Frytol in Tema.

The trend is quite worrying for the company which took over production of Frytol from Unilever in 2010.

“With a current capacity of 1000 metric tonnes a day, palm oil from Ghana is  not enough to produce Frytol which has 60% market share”, he said.

Kwame Wiafe said the product has broken onto west African market hence the need to cultivate more oil palm.

“Our product, Frytol has huge market here in west Africa due to its quality and freshness. If a country is importing other brands from elsewhere, it takes about three month and this may affect the freshness of the product but this is not the case with Frytol”, he indicated.

Meanwhile, Kwame Wiafe explained that it was essential to re-launch Frytol due to some growing concerns.

“We needed to re-launch Frytol due to some negative perception people associated with our brand. Our product has no cholesterol and is certified by the Food and Drugs Authority and Ghana Medical Association,” he explained.

The new Frytol label has the endorsement of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA).

Vice President of GMA, Frank Serebour said a number of steps were taken before the endorsement.

“We did our own research including visiting their factory here in Tema and looked the processes they take oil through including general hygienic process. We looked at how often humans intervene, looked at safety records and practices. In the end, we noticed that it will inure to the health of Ghanaians as it’s fortified with Vitamin A,”

The day ended with a cooking competition among workers with the best team taking away a refrigerator and blender.

Oxford student who was sick of being asked when she was getting married gets married to herself

A single woman who grew tired of being asked when she was getting married has made the extraordinary decision to tie the knot to herself.

Oxford student Lulu Jemimah, 32, was fed-up of her family lecturing her on the importance of settling down with the right man.

But marriage is the last thing on her mind as she studies a masters in creative writing at the prestigious university.

So, in a bid to get her parents off her back, she decided to stage a mock wedding and sent formal invites out to her nearest and dearest.

She hired a dress, walked through the venue to the traditional wedding march and even gave a speech to her guests explaining the lack of a groom.

Lulu says she decided to 'marry' herself because in spite of her success, all her parents could think about when she was going to get a boyfriend and tie the knot, she claims

The blushing bride on her wedding day. Lulu admits her Ugandan parents are baffled by her decision - but said she feels it was the perfect commitment to herself and her studies

Lulu admits her Ugandan parents are baffled by her decision – but said she feels it was the perfect commitment to herself and her studies.

The entire day cost just £2 – for her taxi to the pub venue – as she managed to get the rest of her big day for free or as gifts from friends.

Proud singleton Lulu said: ‘I have a strong passion in life and I am committed to achieving my goals at becoming an academic.

‘But all my family wanted to ask me was when I planned to get married – which is very important back in Uganda – followed by when I would be having children and starting a family.

‘My father wrote my wedding speech when I turned 16. Every birthday my mother prayed for me and in recent years this has included a plea for a good husband.

Lulu previously worked as a freelance journalist and a communications consultant for the International Organisation for Migration. She is currently studying at Oxford University

Lulu Jemimah got 'married' to herself in Uganda in August (pictured) after she grew tired of being asked when she was going to find a husband and settle down

‘But I just didn’t want to think about walking up the aisle. It’s not the thing which keeps me up at night.’

Lulu previously worked as a freelance journalist and a communications consultant for the International Organisation for Migration.

But in 2013 she received a BA Media (film) scholarship from Macquarie University in Australia.

After completing her undergraduate degree, she turned her attention to the UK and applied to Oxford University to do a masters, which she started in August 2017.

‘I could not believe that they had chosen me,’ Lulu said. ‘I still can’t believe it.’

However in spite of her success, all her parents could think about when she was going to get a boyfriend and tie the knot, she claims.

Lulu returned home to Uganda for her birthday in August and was planning a ‘low key’ celebration, until friends convinced her otherwise.

She joked she’d ‘show up in a wedding dress’ – and the idea stuck.

‘One of my closest friends Karin reminded me that I had a lot to celebrate this year like getting into Oxford and I joked that I would show up in a wedding dress,’ she said.

‘We had been talking about this marriage pressure and she loved the idea so much that she offered to get me the wedding gown.

‘Then I decided, you know what weddings seem so important here – I will marry myself.’

Lulu arranged the last-minute ceremony at Quepasa Bar in the Ugandan capital Kampala on August 27 – her 32nd birthday.

A friend who works as a web designer made and printed her invites, and her friend paid to hire her dress, while her brother baked her cake.

Lulu added: ‘[As soon as] I sent these out I immediately received phone calls asking who the groom was. I told people it was a surprise.

‘It’s shocking the price of wedding gowns in Uganda but when I told them I was marrying myself they offered to find me their cheapest dress.

‘I did feel a bit crazy trying on the dress and explaining that I was marrying myself. There was a kind of dismissive tolerance from the girls in the bridal shop.

‘I had to leave an ID card behind and when they saw my Oxford university card they screamed and were so impressed. I tried a few on and I almost cried.

‘It really is a special moment and I understood more than I had the excitement around weddings.’

A friend did Lulu’s makeup in the loos at the venue, and the bar owner – also a friend – played the wedding march as she exited the toilets and walked into the venue.

‘I then spent a few minutes talking to friends and awkwardly explaining that there was no groom – most of them knew by this point,’ she said.

Another friend played the roll of the vicar as Lulu staged a mock exchanging of vows with herself in front of around 30 guests.

‘I was extremely happy,’ she said. ‘So many friends showed up, as well as international and local journalists, film directors and feminist entrepreneurs.

‘Marriage is an expression of love and commitment, however for many people back home, it is still considered the only way to guarantee a woman’s financial security.’

‘I had worried about coming off as stupid but to have such a strong intellectual group of friends behind the idea, that was all the validation I needed for the choices I have made.’

Her parents didn’t attend the big day but she did go and see her mother to explain her choice.

‘When we talked the next day she was a bit confused and slightly hurt, but explained that by even wearing a wedding dress it proved I was ready for marriage,’ she said.

‘My father still maintains that he doesn’t know what to say.’

The wedding wasn’t legally binding – as you can’t legally marry yourself – and Lulu is currently crowdfunding to help pay for her tuition.

‘I constantly tried to look for scholarships, grants and [have] even contacted embassies and government bodies.

‘I considered taking out a loan but was told, as an international student, I was not eligible.

‘From the generosity of 279 people (many friends, most strangers), I managed to secure the first year’s tuition. I am now crowdfunding to pay for my full second-year tuition.’
