Today I learned that the little girl who was delivered from her dead mother’s body alive, after the mother was murdered by the Zionist Regime, died in hospital. To be honest, I was really sad and I had almost made dua that she grow up to know of her story and that she could be a miracle through this horrendous genocide of her people. 

But nothing prepared me for when I learned how she died. She died because Israel bombed the only power plant in Gaza, that was supplying electricity to the incubator that was keeping her alive. 

SubhanAllah, may Allah crush the zionist regime, and may they rot in Hell forever.

Actress MaameYaa Boafo  x  Filmmaker Akosua Adoma Owusu

The years 2013 and 2014 simultaneously ended and began with a New Years trip by me. It was an adventure to the northernmost part of Ghana, Bolgatanga, a place dotted with crocodile ponds, and the objective of which was to do a photo shoot. I did not share in this experience alone, especially as it was all happening on the eve of my 30th birthday.

With my retinue of friends, the actress, MaameYaa, two creatives from Design233, Kwame Edwin Otu and the photographer Charles Lawson, and the Australian bloke Matthew Keks, the experience was super-magical. Together with MaameYaa, I positioned myself in front of the camera for a wonderful photo shoot by Charles Lawson.

These shots indeed tell a story, one which is both compelling and instructive. This is one about friendship revival, trust and dedication, and the re-bridging of relationships separated by the Atlantic.

Sisterhood is, indeed, forever.

fasting, running on 3hrs of sleep, 9-5 office job, no nap today, rally for gaza, iftar, and then there’s the expectation of both Tarawih AND Tahajjud on weekends….
