Dubbed the Best of Plays (BOP), the series of rib cracking, music infuse and dance electrifying plays will feature actors such as Adjetey Annan, Ecow Smith-Asante and Naa Ashorkor in plays namely What Can Come Can Come, Thank God for Idiots and Divorce or Suicide. Divorce or Suicide and What Can Come Can Come will be staged live at the National Theatre of Ghana on 23rd and 24th December respectively. Thank God for Idiots will also be staged in kumasi on the 26th at the Golden Tulip Hotel and on the 27th of December between 5pm to 8pm each night. Speaking to journalist in Accra, the playwright and producer, Latif Abubakar promised patrons of spiced-up performances of plays and entreated all to attend with families and friends. To him, happiness is a God given right that all must seek to embrace. “That’s precisely the mission of Globe Productions, to keep touching lives and making people happy. To help them appreciate life by distressing themselves from the exigencies of the times”
Mr. Latif Abubakar thanked the partners of Globe, namely Starr FM, Graphic Showbiz and Citi FM for their invaluable support.

It was yet another successful ‘By The Fireside’ event and the attendance this time was undoubtedly double that of the maiden event. Was it because of the content for the night; sex & relationships? Definite crowd pullers then. P.G Sebastian & Nana Darkoa Sakyiaama our two storytellers took the ‘stage’ to share their most popular blogpost and what prompted them to write it.

Why I Walked Out On Him by PG Sebastian a prolific blogger and speaker on marriage & relationships was first to tell his story. He shared how this post was inspired by a conversation he heard or overhead from a lady on her phone. His content which is mostly founded on Christian values & principles for marriage, was presented with very practical life examples.

byThefireside3.0-16Why should you walk out on a guy even if he has proposed to you? Is he living in the now or has plans for the future? If he is always hanging out with his ‘boys boys’ or always buying the latest gadget or car then he’s living in the now and doesn’t have any plans of the future. Walk out. Does he only talk about football instead of family? If he’s always talking about Chelsea or is very focused on Keeping Up With The Kardasians then walk out. He obviously doesn’t have much to talk about with regards to the future. For a moment some members of the audience in their excitement yelled ‘Amen’ in congruence with his energy.

‘Sexing Whilst Feminist’ was next by Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, owner and award-winning blogger of Adventures From , a sex blog. She launched into how Adventures From started out and what sexing whilst feminist meant.

Nokia has expanded its highly successful range of Asha devices with the addition of three new phones known as the Nokia Asha ICE range; Asha 500, Asha 502 and Asha 503 which come encased in a glamorous and beautiful crystal layer.

The devices feature a new unique innovation known as layered design, achieved using the ‘dual shot’ technique which is unique to Nokia. It combines an inner layer of bold, bright colour surrounded by crystal-clear transparency. The combination adds a distinctive look to the phone’s monobody design, as well as durability. The high-end design is a clear differentiator, as are the craftsmanship and attention to detail.

The Asha Ice range will be available in Easy Swap dual SIM and single SIM variants. The Easy Swap Dual SIM technology which is unique-to-Nokia allows people to switch between SIM cards on the go, to get better tariffs or alternate between SIM cards for SMS, voice and data, without having to turn off the device.

In addition to the stunning new look, the Asha ICE range boast of impressive new features and apps such as the amazing swipe feature that enables people take pictures with a single swipe and share instantly on their social network with a simple tap, its colourful variants and most importantly, its affordability. WhatsApp is also available on the Asha Ice range along with other popular chat and messaging apps already available for Asha Platform devices, such as WeChat, Line, eBuddy and Nimbuzz..

The Asha Ice devices feature the updated Fastlane home screen, a unique, second screen that acts as a shortcut to the phone’s recently accessed apps, features and content, as well as future activity, such as calendar appointments. The updated screen enables live updates, which alert people to new activity through notifications on Fastlane.

By clicking on the Fastlane item with new notifications, people will be directed to the relevant post, so they never miss an important update. Fastlane can be further personalised and made more private by selecting what content can appear on-screen, and by deleting unwanted Fastlane items, on the go.

The Nokia Asha range was introduced into the Ghanaian market in 2012 and since then has experienced massive acceptance with deep market penetration in the country. Nokia has continued to expand the Asha range with smart and colourful devices embedded with cool features and applications that appeal to its customers across the country.
