IT'S MIDDAY IN ACCRA, This Is Kweku Obeng Adjei On Starr 103.5 FM

It’s a minute to midday. Dark and muscly, Kweku Obeng Adjei struts briskly from the Komla Dumor newsroom into the studio across, a Lenovo laptop in his sturdy hand, an expression on his face which spells strictly, business.  He’s shadowed by a petite young lady of similar complexion. As they enter the studio, colleague broadcaster Kofi Okyere Darko, has just wrapped up his duties on mid-morning show “The Zone” and is on his way out.

A giant table occupies the center of the room. On it rests an iconic console whose channel faders are regularly caressed by on-air titans Bola Ray, Francis Abban, Giovanni & Berla Mundi, Jon Germain, Nii Aryee Tagoe among others. Black microphones, and swivel chairs surround the desk, and the day’s major newspapers rest on a small cabinet in the back. On a muted flat screen TV on the wall behind the glass door, an Al-Jazeera documentary is showing.

Kweku settles in the chair behind the console, from where he is faced directly by one of the microphones, three computer monitors, and a wide section of Ghana’s capital, who will be at the end of his voice in seconds. He sets the Lenovo down, beside the console, and begins to whisper something as he stares at the screen. The lady with whom he has just entered, offering production assistance, also sets up by his side. Suddenly, the familiar sictune announcing the Starr Midday News is heard in speakers in the top corners of the room. The news is live.

For the next half-hour, Accra and beyond, will be equipped with the very latest news items across governance, business, international happenings, and sports.

PRAY FOR OUR ICONS - A Peace From Chaana , Ghana's Most Beautiful 2010 Finalist

Praying for the icons of our society is as important as prophesying into their lives. It is high time our spiritual leaders not only prophesy but also pray and offer guidance as there are diverse challenges these icons face.

Unfortunately what we experience is the aftermath of the prophesies, which these spiritual leaders often see as opportunities to market themselves as prophets with special abilities. The question usually is... Are they spiritual guides/ leaders doing the actual work of God or Do they prophesy for fame?

Death is inevitable but often uncertain. I believe in living life everyday like it was your last because of the obvious; none is promised tomorrow but while at that be humble and kindhearted.

As a philanthropist I do not think you need to be rich, wealthy or comfortable financially before you extend help to those who needs it.  Humans will forget your words but will forever remember the impact and difference you make in their lives. Hence would not hesitate to share my last cedi note with one who needs it.
