I’ve been in Ghana for two months already, where has the time flown to?
I spent the first month in the beautiful beach resort of Kokrobite, after my 10 day tour with The Calabash Hub. I tried sitting at my computer to write, but nothing came!
I decided not to beat myself up about it, and enjoyed going to the beach most days, and having fun with the locals! I even learnt some new painting techniques from a local artist, Dele Sawyerr. He does brilliant portraits, as well as paintings like the one below, and abstract. He can be contacted on +233 0243312726
(I was just painting the flowers!)
I also attended the African Genius Awards in honour of Kwame Nkrumah, which was a great evening out – I especially enjoyed the performances!
I’ve performed at two events so far; a natural hair event held at The Dubois Centre, and a poetry event organised by the CRE crew; I featured with Kwaku Sonny held at the Cahaya Lounge; I must say, I was really impressed with the talented poets in Ghana! I’m still waiting to get more photos/videos of that event, so will add them later!
It’s Hamatan season here now; much cooler in the mornings, and a lot of dust; also very hazy. My friend Yeshuah’s wife told me that some men wait until this season to choose a wife, because the weather can make your lips crack; if the woman’s lips crack, they wouldn’t marry them! (I thought that was hilarious!)
This Sunday I’m travelling from Pokuase to Tokadori (like travelling from London to Manchester apparently) for an interview on Melody fm 91.1 with Bob Gee – his show is called ‘The Hall of Fame’. The show is from 6-7pm GMT, tune in if you can!
In my next post I’ll be sharing my thoughts and experiences of Ghana….
Stay blissed for now!
