GHANAIAN ARTISTES CAN’T ACHIEVE GREATNESS IF THEY DONT STOP BEING SELFISH – BULLDOG

BULLDOG 1

Bulldog, the artiste manager for Zylofon media has revealed that Ghanaian artistes will not be able to compete with these Nigerian and other African artistes from the perspective of performing to a huge audience outside the country if they do not change their mentality towards each other.

Bulldog explained that, though the Nigerians also have problems in their entertainment industry BUT they are all united and that is the main reason they achieve greatness.

In a discussion on why no Ghanaian artistes participated in the 02Arena concert in London, Bulldog made an assertion that, Ghanaians seems to be born hurting each other, Nigerians are tagged with money laundry(fraud) and in a way to change their narrative,Its is not about money or Nigerians but rather making waves in music  to clean their bad attribute through unity and music.

 

It not a big deal for only two people Wizkid and Davido to perform concert at 02 arena and full up the auditorium but it times Ghanaians  stop hurting each other and come together with  a collective agenda to put Ghana music industry on  the map as the Nigerians are doing.

Until artiste unite as a working force and  push Ghana music forward and stop being selfish and greedy, Ghana music will not achieve greatness. He concluded.

Fashion they say is what you buy, but style is what you do with it”. For the past four years, one amazing lady has been doing magic in creating the visual style and appearance of the most decorated rapper in Africa – Sarkodie and some other international acts and has made a business out of it.

Today on innovation ,we are honored to share with with you one of Ghana’s celebrity stylist Nana Odum who is the brain and brand behind TrendyRail.
Ghanaian born, but UK raised and based Nana Odum, popularly known as TrendyRail, a full time stylist whose passion got flared up by a happenstance during her five years’ work experience as a visual Merchandiser. Her love for styling has now led to building a business out of her passion.
The now pro stylist who started off in 2014, but branded properly to position herself well in 2015 traced her creativity to her bloodline, saying, almost everyone in her family is creative in some sort of way. To oust the fear of being an ordinary stylist, TrendyRail goes out of her way to make her style have a perfect blend of antiquity while the essential 21st ubiquitous looks are not downplayed.


The daring stylist who has over the years worked with the likes of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Wande Coal, Koredo Bello, Kuami Eugene, Kidi and MzVee has changed the face of artistic looks and artiste appearance. She is poised on expanding her territories, but faced with some impervious; understanding the need for a stylist by arts, funds as well as the will to stand out.

MY JOURNEY OF FINDING MY PURPOSE

walking-349991 (1)

“For I know the thought I have for you, good thought to take you through that perfect ending, says the lord.”
If you are like me, then sorry because you can claim and deceive yourself that you are multi-talented person, stop lying, Brethren you are not, THERE IS CONFUSION.
Growing up in a catering house made me feel like I can cook different food in few hours .I have always believe am multi-talented girl, like I flex with it, soon I realized am simply confuse about my purpose in life and that has been my weakness all this years.
I participated in all that comes handy. After my secondary education, my target goal was to be a nurse and that took me (7)seven good years to find myself but do you know how that seven years wasted could have help me, possibly to achieve a lot.


Staying at home for all this year’s made me do a lot of crazy things like pediatrics, early childhood education, diploma in computer secretariat, certificate in cake and sugar craft artistry, SQR in data base management, photography, I even went to the extent of teaching and establishing cleaning company.
Growing up, my life was simply tatted in two skills identified by my parent, my mom wished I study Television broadcasting or secretarial kind of profession whilst my dad wanted me to be a nurse. Honestly I had love the two suggested profession for me but I didn’t know who to look up to or someone to motivate me to be like. I struggled to choose my dad’s side because I thought it was a descent profession but destiny did not permit me.

This is to my fellow moms and dad, please don’t choose what kids have to be for them but observe their weakness and strength and help them to choose what they fit doing.


Life was totally confusing for me as a young girl trying to find my purpose in life, until February 2016.
My love for photography and talking to the camera generated my interest in talking to the camera as I funnily use to call it.
I recorded my first video on YouTube, it wasn’t perfect but it felt fulfilling and accomplishing, the passion and love grew more than I imagine, sooner people notice my works and advice I do television producing and direction.
Indeed they say time flies, seconds, minute, weeks, months and seconds wipe Two years like tinder swipe.
It’s wasn’t easy going back to school after my long absent in class, but through it all faithful is our God.
Am now a graduate of GHANA NATIONAL FILM AND TELEVISION INSTITUTE, doing my intern at multimedia limited.
Am happy doing what my life was made to be, Trust me there is nothing simplifying and satisfying in life like living a fulfilling life.
I don’t know what your struggles are in finding yours but one thing I can inspire you on is that, don’t give up on what you really want to do with your life but I can assure you to trust every step of it,grab each opportunity and channel every weakness into your strength.
I have not given up on my nursing career, even dou am comfortably enjoying my profession now.
Feel free to comment and share your journey and let inspire.
Life is tooooo long make good use of it.
Kuks.

THE POISONOUS PAST THAT FULFIL MY PRESENT

let-go-of-your-past

HEY~KUKIES
Nobody forget how bad they hurt you but the saddest part is how you are drain in your present about your past. When past calls don’t answer because it has nothing good for you.

It’s sad to hear when the bible say love your enemies. It the weirdest thing encounter in my life.

Trust me I believe if you say I want to but I can’t, just seeing them makes me frantic, I can still recall it like an hour ago. There is no thoroughbred to describe that total weakness.I won’t and nobody should because it a total self-forgiving process abashing sometimes but going through transform your life forever.

Everybody has a different dimension in their past experience and that the beauty of life.

Until you pray for understanding and take time off to analyze the situation, you will never forgive him, her or yourself.

You can take advantage, cheat, dupe, and do your worse, still she/he/them won’t count your past deeds but still open up to you like nothing has happen, I chose to be angry and ask why are you doing what you doing?

Miss claudette always say that, the basics of how bad you are hurt is you the individual, yes you heard me, isn’t that crazy ?how can I make someone hurt me this bad, let consider relationship matters since it the common among youngsters encounters today, I mostly chance praise for bad behavior.

He’s dirty, that all men are, he will change

He doesn’t care, he’s had relationship challenge and he will pull through

He always lie his way to get what he want from you, he will change.

Relatable? Continue, add on your experience………

I understood my sister’s principle to lay the issues before me and followed her process to let go.

·      MAKE A DECISION TO LET GO

There is no solution without problems and vice versa, sometimes our problems looks not physical remember my dad disappointed me on the early age of my life, he was my first love but hatred grew in me and I ask how my own dad could do this to me, I wanted to forgive him so I decided to let go, My way of letting  go was  by praying for him,  one day in my dream God reveal something shocking to me and from that day, my heart started to heal.so I ask God to help me to let go.

·      OUTDOOR YOUR GOALS AND RESPONSIBILITY.

In letting  go of my disappointment I realize that, I  had a role and responsibility of understanding my dad on the situation at hand but I pictured it in a wrong way which made me crown myself in hatred. I  could have been patient  but I concluded the situation.

Stop being the victim and blaming others. See through that pain, enlighten your success with those poisonous past.

I played the victim and blame my dad severally that if he had paid that money for me to get admission to enter the nursing , my life would have been better by now, but trust me nothing happen for no reason, all things work together for good. Trust me, I feel accomplished now for what am doing now than that of the nursing carrier. Today I have something to inspire you my cherish reader.am a tv producer direction, and a blogger now. Its took me seven good years to stop blaming and playing the victim.it your turn to pursue that change and find yourself too.

FOCUS ON THE PRESENT, HERE, NOW AND ENJOY

I let go all the depressions and hatred after seven good years, focus on me and me alone, my life was here, now before my two eye to pick the pieces together and swipe the past like seeing unqualified guy on tinder, lol, took my future in focus and now enjoying.

§  FORGIVE THEM AND ENJOY

One funny thing about forgiving your past start from you, you, you, and yourself before the other party, after that dream about my dad, I totally forgave myself and that of my father. The gratitude is unending, To God be the glory. Today I can talk to him like I use to with fun and enjoyment. It never too late to forgive our past and enjoy forgiving.

Trust me, your past dilemma is also affecting people who love you, your tears, depression and stress is becoming contagious, So do yourself and everybody a great favor, let go

 

Do something different today and welcome something different back into your life.

it’s always refreshing and relaxing doing something new and fulfilling, take a day or weekend swimming, going out of your town, see different things that can help you think, see and do new things that you can  channel your energy on.

I practically left my hometown to the city just to find myself and let myself go all the past and trust me ,it worth the move. After four good God blessing years,  I discovered my real inner Passion that is fulfilling. I can say this past experience has really shape me in all tremendous ways.

Don’t pick up the calls of your past, for they have nothing new to give you.

Enjoy your  new let go self.
