  • Aside the enthralling music and dance that the play is laced with, Kobina Ansah has littered the piece with some thought-provoking quotes that will set everybody thinking so deeply about life. Here are a few;

    This July promises to be amazing as Ghanaian playwright, Kobina Ansah, is set to unveil his new suspenseful play, THE BOY CALLED A GIRL. The 11-cast family play, set in a dance studio, is pregnant with a great plot that will hurl its audience into a new world of bewilderment.

  • “You can never be president,” he was told.”

    Naysayers are all over the place. They see nothing ever achievable because they have no guts to even try them out. They’ll do all they can to tear down what others may try to build or aspire to be. They see gloom, speak impossibility and give their ears to vanity. Whether you allow such pessimists to stand in the way of your dreams or not is yours alone to decide.

  • It’s that memorable time of the year again― graduation of university students. The joy on the faces of graduates is so conspicuous. In fact, we were all told there was more rest after school only to realize there was even more work. No matter how much academic life stressed you, the issues of life will even stress you more! Well, let me share with you these few lessons I wish I had known back in the day. It may still be useful to someone out here.

  • Ahead of our stage play, #Tribeless, I shared these utterly essential tips with my team and we thought it’s worth sharing as you may also find it useful:

  • Are you about to walk down the aisle? Don’t do so for these reasons. Wrong intentions become wrong foundations.

    When you come from Africa, you need not to be told how important weddings are here. Your parents can get so involved as though they are the ones walking down the aisle. As if that’s not enough, you can actually lose friends you don’t invite… forever. Yes, you heard me right. Forever!

  • Unfortunately, there are many fathers who keep repeating the errors of their fathers. Like a vicious cycle, their sons also tend to repeat these errors because a man likely takes after what he has been exposed to.

    There are great fathers who have laid down their lives to make their children who they are today. However, there are equally bad ones whose children’s potential could never be a reality because they were never there for them.

  • Plan your expenses. Track everything you spend on. Spend in this season with next month in mind. Making merry is sweet but life after the merriment shouldn’t be sour!

    Christmas is here again and we are all excited to be alive to see the year come to a fruitful end. There is an umpteen of events to attend. Especially in this year of return, there are a lot of activities to spend on… and that’s what makes it dangerous if this Christmas was an unplanned one for you.

  • If we are going to have a new generation of daughters who are going to act differently, it will largely depend on the mindset they have.

    Cheers! We all made it to 2020! This is a year we all should make a conscious effort to raise queens out of our daughters— not slaves. In this year, we ought to be intentional about how we are going to make our daughters and sisters perceive the world around them by the thoughts we sow into their minds.

  • It is during these times that we realize how human we all are despite our differences. Regardless of our different locations, we are now fighting a common enemy ...

    The past few weeks have been a tough one in the world over. Hospital beds are exhausted. The old are dying just as much as the young are. As many rich people are perishing as the poor ones. The economies of nations are crashing. Businesses are on their knees. Life has literally come to a halt and everyone is fleeing from one name— coronavirus!

  • “A cassock can cover a man’s skin but never his character!”

    Over the years, my team and I have managed to consistently produce plays with the aim of changing some toxic narratives and above all, changing our mindset. Every play of mine has the family in mind. I believe society can only stand when the family unit is intact. Our style of theatre, thus, is to communicate inspiration, lessons and fun.

  • One of the most difficult places to be in life is to be a starter. It is such a hard place to be if you ...

    Life is hard for an underdog. Imagine trying to get DJs to play your songs just because you are an underground artiste. Imagine begging for platforms as a novice.  Imagine begging potential clients to give you a chance to provide a service for them because you just started a business. Being an underdog is such an uncomfortable experience.

  • When you sow a seed, you don’t see growth happening but that doesn’t mean it’s not. Everything is hidden in the soil. Likewise, ...

    In 2015, I took a bold decision that changed the course of my life greatly— I quit my career as a Biology teacher of St. Roses SHS, Akwatia. Well, I never set out to be a teacher (neither did I ever dream of being a writer) but by dint of fate, I found myself teaching these young, brilliant girls how to pass their exams. It was a whole new level of adventure and fun between 2011 and 2015.

  • To many, His death is just another event but therein, there are many lessons it exposes. From events preceding His capture in the garden to His crucifixion on the cross, every man ought to know that there are quite a number of tidbits to learn.

    Death reminds us that our lives have a deadline. It always reminds us that we will not live forever and that whatever we may need to do, we must do now. When Christ hanged breathlessly on the cross, one lesson death was teaching us was that how long a man lives doesn’t matter as much as how well he lives that while.

  • “When are you getting married?”

    Questions keep a conversation going. Some questions, however, hold the power to break down a man you are having a conversation with. They can be a constant reminder of what they never had. A man may not be heartless but the caliber of questions he asks may give him out as such.

  • When I hear such messages from the pulpit, I burst into laughter. If marriage was what made anyone complete, neither Paul nor Christ was complete then.

    One’s environment has an influence on their mindset. The way we think is directly or indirectly due to where we have lived and what we have been exposed to.

  • You need experience as much as you need prayer. Invest in your skills as much as you invest in prayer. Prayer is not an excuse for laziness. Go earn that skill however possible.

    “And David said to Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock. And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.”
    ― 1 Samuel 17:34-35[KJV].
