  • Singing Love’s Praiz

    An artist is constantly in the middle of something. One afternoon in late May, as I am ushered into the hotel suite that serves as lodging for Praiz during his last trip to Accra, the above quote visits my mind, for mid-tempo melody—bereft of verses—rings about tenderly in the...
  • Joe Mettle on Worship, Winning, and the WIND OF REVIVAL

    My suspicion that his name educes a “poster boy” perception ricochets against a lively chuckle. Joe Mettle, the decorated Ghanaian gospel minister, is reticent about this notion, and dismisses it strictly as that—a vexed perception latched onto by many.  “Don’t you think it’s a perception?” he tosses back in...

    The female form is a fount of boundless art. Precisely in this regard, Larbi and Hayford are art lovers too. Tall and dashing this Sunday in contrasting t-shirts, denims and sneakers, the pair of twentysomethings; one the complexion of dark chocolate, the other possessing a lighter skin tone are...
  • In Dabala with Sedufia

    DAY 5! On acres and acres of virgin land somewhere in Dabala (V/R), under the benevolent morning sun, there’s non-stop clanking of hammer on wood. The keen-faced squatting artisans swinging their arms in labour have been entrusted a singular task; one that evokes the Genesis 11 undertaking by humanity...
