Organise separate award for Gospel Musician-Minister Frankie

Published

on

Sensational gospel singer Minister Frankie has called on organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) to organise separate awards for Gospel artistes.

According to him, the industry had become huge and it was bombarded with wide range of gospel music genres.

The gospel artiste stressed that lots of singers were trending and doing well within the industry hence needed to be acknowledged for their efforts.

He mentioned that since VGMA was organised for both secular and gospel artiste, secular musicians sweep home most of the awards making it difficult for the gospel artiste to be awarded for their outstanding effort in the industry.

Minister Frankie released a new track on Valentine’s Day to usher his third album unto the market.

The latest track ‘Se wo do me’ is an inspirational track that the singer communicated the need to love one’s neighbour without doing evil against anyone.

“I took my inspiration from Leviticus 19:18 which states ‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbour as yourself. I am the Lord,” he said.

In an exclusive interview with degraftpr.co.uk in Accra on Tuesday, the Minister indicated that his current single would change the thought of individuals and promote love and unity among people in the country.

He explained that the love people lacked for their fellow humans have restrained their blessings, adding that “this song will make people act kindly towards others for God to shower his blessings upon them.”

Minister Frankie revealed that his third album would be titled ‘3beba mu’ which means ‘it shall come to pass.’

The album which would be released this year would have seven hot Holy Ghost filled tracks, stating that both video and audio were ready in the market and urged his fans to purchase it.

Known in private life as Frank Opoku he already hit the market with two albums in the year 2012 and 2015 and set to wave the air with a promising album.

He has featured great industrial artistes like Obaapa Christy, Diana Hammond, Eliza, Minister Simeon Igwe and Mrs Priscilla Kwakye.

Ashesi University’s Remarkable Code of Conduct.

Published

on

Ashesi University if not for anything has been in the news for a number of a good reasons. Among young Ghanaians, it is the dream university to attend. The university boasts of better tuition, better academic programs and facilities and most importantly, practically oriented courses that allow students to come out with their potentials.

This coupled with other policies make Ashesi stands out tall amongst universities in Ghana. The most striking policy that has been applauded and called to be replicated in other schools is the code of Honour; Under Ashesi’s Honour Code, exams on campus have no supervisors. Students pledge to hold themselves to account; to not cheat or tolerate those who do. The Code encourages students to own their ethical posture, and to do the right thing even when no one is watching.

Interestingly, students rarely cheat in the exams hall and are able to come out with flying colours. It is also worth noting how graduating students celebrate at Ashesi. Well, you can’t fault them. Adherence to such a code of conduct is not a mere feat and must be celebrated as such.

Watch:Timbuktu’s Striking Earthen City.

Timbuktu was a center of Islamic scholarship under several African empires, home to a 25,000-student university and other madrasahs that served as wellsprings for the spread of Islam throughout Africa from the 13th to 16th centuries. Sacred Muslim texts, in bound editions, were carried great distances to Timbuktu for the use of eminent scholars from Cairo, Baghdad, Persia, and elsewhere who were in residence at the city.

This West African city—long synonymous with the uttermost end of the Earth—was added to the World Heritage List in 1988, many centuries after its apex.

Timbuktu was a center of Islamic scholarship under several African empires, home to a 25,000-student university and other madrasahs that served as wellsprings for the spread of Islam throughout Africa from the 13th to 16th centuries. Sacred Muslim texts, in bound editions, were carried great distances to Timbuktu for the use of eminent scholars from Cairo, Baghdad, Persia, and elsewhere who were in residence at the city. The great teachings of Islam, from astronomy and mathematics to medicine and law, were collected and produced here in several hundred thousand manuscripts. Many of them remain, though in precarious condition, to form a priceless written record of African history.

Now a shadow of its former glory, Timbuktu strikes most travelers as humble and perhaps a bit run down.

But the city’s former status as an Islamic oasis is echoed in its three great mud-and-timber mosques: Djingareyber, Sankore, and Sidi Yahia, which recall Timbuktu’s golden age. These 14th- and 15th-century places of worship were also the homes of Islamic scholars known as the Ambassadors of Peace.
