Showbiz photographer Kwabena Awuku explains Shatta Wale’s famous “mighty falls”

Published

on

These captivating images by celebrity photographer Kwabena Awuku show dancehall singer Shatta Wale in what can only be described as mighty falls.

This move (peculiarly taking place during the performance of his song Long Time) has left many befuddled: while some interpret it as an honest fall, others, because of the frequency with which it happens, laud it as a masterful performance gimmick.

In a recent tweet, official photographer of the Kakai hitmaker Kwabena Awuku (born Curtis Osei -Owusu), has once and for all, revealed what this “mighty fall” symbolises:

Kwabena Awuku is among the most respected contemporary photographers in the showbiz terrain, working with numerous entertainment icons, notably dancehall singer Shatta Wale and rapper Sarkodie.

#ENEWSGHPoeticLicense: De-illusion – Asford PSALM

Published

on

Above the mountain, a man sees everything so little as though ants.

On the ground, everything seems otherwise.

What you think you have is an illusion of what you don’t have.

Likewise, is what you have an illusion of the otherwise.

 

A man with power is above the mountains.

His delusions make everything seem like ant.

A man on the ground sees everything otherwise and is illusioned into believing he’s without power.

But power itself is an illusion.

An illusion that deludes a man into believing he’s with authority.

 

Power is overrated.

It’s an incorrect assumption of authority.

A roof may be the forebearer of rain water.

But the thrusters beneath directs the path of the runoff rain.

A roof may shield-off the rain of sun rays.

But is that the only accountable factor to the conducive convection within?

 

A man who is deluded by his illusion of power forgets the authority of the thrusters which lay within it’s shadows.

That which is strategically positioned in the shadows of the delusions of power is what is truly real.

That’s authority.

 

Power is mostly an incorrect assumption of authority.

#ENEWSGHPoeticLicence: Meditation – Asford PSALM

Published

on

All men are insistently referred to as dogs;

Cliché!

It’s particularly the bane when the issuer in the instance has become the reverse of the word ‘dog’;

A god who possess omnifarious qualities.

 

What really is the issue?

Is there an err in man’s creation to be referred to as such in an ungodly norm?

Or it’s the missing part taken to create another, complete from him?

Or that, he can’t resist whatever Eve gives to him?

 

All men are dogs;

Are all dogs men?

It’s not a fair comparison by any estate.

 

Consider not even the blasphemy;

If there’s an insistent craving to refer a man to a dog, the least consideration should be;

A dog is most loyal and faithful and a good friend to man when treated well with even the least.

Own a dog and just maybe you’ll understand.

#ENEWSGHPoeticLicence: Daydream – Asford PSALM

Published

on

The night visions beckon me to a wake.

I have stayed all night to figure it right;

From the mammoth to its tiny bits.

 

Night is gone, day is here;

But I’m stuck in a looping rear.

For a reason or the other and though the sun is here;

It seems to have not found a way to light away my fear.

 

My arm is up and my jaw sits atop.

But in a new day I flay in the same dream non-stop.

I’m at the mercy of a night vision that won’t go away;

A day dream; one in part, the same.

When at all can I walk my thoughts?

Can I even work my thoughts?

Will it even be worth it?

 

Gracefully and all of a sudden,

A snap!

His snapping fingers won’t stop until my mind responds to him with same.

Why are you lost in your thoughts son?

You are in too deep in the wrong way.

Walk out of your thoughts and make it work;

Your thoughts on its own has no legs!

Lucky for you, you have two legs and arms too.

So make it work!

 

Asford Psalms

#ENEWSGHPoeticLicence: Nowhere to go – ASFORD PSALM

Published

on

The first time was to be my last.

The first time was to come by and away it goes past.

But then I tasted the sweet in the crevices and the cracks;

And I have lost all haste to leave thus fast.

 

The first was to only be but the first;

Until I tasted more of its sweets.

Now it has had me mellow and my craving thirst has bid me to follow.

With nowhere to go I am an obliged fellow;

I have lost all counts and can’t keep score.

 

I am livid though I ask for more and more.

I will love to go back to where I came from.

Contrary, here I am, held against my will to the sweets of this world.

The first time was a wish;

The second was a charm;

The third meant no harm, but here I am, I have been bewitched.

And it seems there’s nowhere to go.

 

Asford Psalms
