the bar, art gallery, party, or even at the church than they make it look like in
romcoms. Online is the commonest place people are looking for companionship,
love, sex, and everything in between. Despite this, people are still very
uncomfortable admitting they met someone online; especially on dating apps. No
matter the app, they’re more comfortable saying they slid into someone’s DM.

Influencer Africa Launches In Ghana With 5000 Influencers including, Ameyaw Debrah, Sarkodie, Joselyn Dumas
There is simply no denying the relevancy of influencers in today’s digital market. Influencers are people who have sway over people’s choices or preferences and—at the risk of sounding literal—they have an influence on people’s buying decisions. The bond between influencer and viewer is an organic one which allows natural opportunities for commercialization.
Influencers have become the standard for niche marketing. The influencer approach to marketing promises something that brands cannot match—even with considerable effort. That thing is relatability. What the influencer sells is not just the brand they are advertising, but also the lifestyle that comes with that brand. It is for this reason that Influencer Africa has signed over 5000 influencers across a vast breadth of industries. You name it, and there is an influencer setting trends within that niche. Be it Fashion, Lifestyle, Technology, Beauty, Food, Beverages and even Travel, Influencer Africa has the right voice that people will want to listen to. That is precisely who an influencer is.
The biggest drawback of an influencer focused approach to marketing for a brand is the logistics of it all. How do you find the right influencer for your brand? How do you measure the effectiveness of an influencer campaign to be able to put it down as money well spent? And even beyond that, how do you manage influencers so that their output matches your vision without infringing on the influencer’s authenticity? These questions are why Influencer Africa comes in—to make things seamless and mutually beneficial for brand and influencer.
Influencer Africa already has a significant presence in the African countries of Nigeria, Liberia, Côte D’Ivoire, Cameroun, Uganda and Kenya. The company is launching in Ghana in the hopes of bringing its expertise as a bridge between influencer and brand to brands on the Ghanaian market.
The Influencer Africa register of influencers can be broken down into Mega Influencers (influencers with over 1 million followers), Macro Influencers (follower count between 100K and 1 million) and Micro Influencers (influencers with a follower count between 10K and 100K).
The Ghanaian register currently includes names like Sarkodie, Ameyaw Debrah, Joselyn Dumas, Joey B, Caroline Sampson, Nikki Samonas and Delay among others.
So Brands, influencers, are you ready?
“God Healed Me” – Actor Waakye Reveals
Veteran Ghanaian actor Prince Yawson popularly known as Waakye has confirmed he was sick but God has healed him. The filmmaker was reported to have been hit with a mild stroke some years ago.
Some people alleged that he was rushed to a spiritual home in August this year when his condition detoriorated.
However, the actor in an interview with Hitz FM’s Doreen Avio said he felt bad hearing the numerous misinformation put out by people about his health status.
He stated that a lot of media houses failed to crosscheck information they put out.
“I watched a video of a newscaster who said I had a little chance of survival. It is as if you are the one who gives life, as if God told her He was going to kill me. I don’t know where they got that from” Waakye said.
Waakye assured that at the right time, he will come out to clear the air on all matters related to his health.
“Once Upon a time I was sick but I am well. The Bible tells us not to say I am sick but say I am well, that is why God will touch you but if I say I am sick then you will go sick but I have been well, God has touched me, God is busy on me,” he added.
Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare Denies Claims By Mark Okraku Mantey Against NDC
Former Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare has stated that, contrary to claims by President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey, the erstwhile John Mahama administration left notes on the sector during the 2017 transition.
Mr Okraku-Mantey, who was speaking during an event at the Accra Tourist Information Centre, had stated that workers of the Ministry had informed him that, zero investment had been made since the Creative Arts was added to the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.
But speaking on Hitz News @ 1 on Thursday, Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare urged Mr. Okraku-Mantey to stop the blame game and get serious. This according to her is because there is a lot of work to be done.
“He should stop the blame game and work. Ghana needs money, the Creative Arts industry needs money so if you just sit there and say they didn’t leave any money for us, there is no money in our coffers, what is that?
“He should get serious please, and please let Okraku-Mantey know there is a lot of work to be done which he hasn’t done.
“For him to say he is President of the Creative Arts, he should make sure that the law is passed otherwise he is president over nothing,” she said.
While listing some achievements by her office, the former Minister said they drafted the Creative Arts Bill which was ready for cabinet but lost power in 2016.
She added that they also ensured the passage of the Film Law which would include a fund.
Madam Agyare revealed that the Creative Arts industry was given GH¢1 million to work with, making allegations that investment was not made in the sector false.
“The Creative Arts industry was given GH¢1 million and Okraku Mantey can speak to that as well, and so if you say we did not make any investment in the Creative Arts industry what does he mean?
“Every year we took money from the Tourism Development Fund, so we could have given them another GH¢1 million if we hadn’t lost power in 2016,” she said.
Rating the works of the NPP, she stated that the government has not paid attention to the Creative Arts and did not continue from where they left off.
She advised Ghanaians especially the Creative Arts stakeholders to re-elect former President John Dramani Mahama to continue his good works.
