Retired Ghanaian goalkeeper Ali Jarrah has thrown his unflinching support behind the Blackstars players for charging the nation before making any appearance for the national team.

 

According to him, he supports fully the idea of charging and insisting that payments are made before they make any appearance for the national team at any tournament.

 

The ex-goalie Ali Jarrah revealed that the nation Ghana is not worth dying for considering how they were left without taken care of after sacrificing their lives for the nation.

Speaking in an interview on Kwese TV’s “After Sports” with Maame Adjoa, he revealed how he and his teammates were left not catered for after serving the nation dutifully but after their career, the care extended to them is zero. A phenomenon he disclosed started in 1963 to the 1965 team who won the African Cup to their regime

 

GHANA IS NOT WORTH DYING FOR – ALI JARRAH

“I do support Blackstars charging currently before dying for the nation. The reason is that the nation is not worth dying for. Nobody cares and after your career, it’s zero. That is true,” he said.

 

Ali Jarrah explained that football in Ghana doesn’t come with social security and insurance and most of their earnings in their days were from hand to mouth. A situation he likened to soldiers who go to war for their nation.

 

He further added that football is a seasonal career and at the end of it, everything returns to zero. The nation doesn’t care about your welfare leaving you to die slowly.

Ali Jarrah was called to the national team at age 15 and at age 17, got paralyzed. A situation that ended his football career abruptly but he is however grateful for how the nation took him to London for treatment in the first one and half years of his unfortunate predicament.

 

He is, however, appealing to the nation and the government to use just 1% from all football gate proceeds to support retired national team footballers. This support he believes can at least give them some pension cushion.

 

“For every football ticket sold at the stadium, 17.5% goes into education, why can’t they give us 1% to support soccer players – ex-footballers. I played only 3 years and got paralyzed and for 26 years I have to struggle for my own self, which is very bad,” he suggested.

 

“I have 2 children. If my child comes home from school to his father to even ask him for anything and you can’t afford to buy your child ice cream whiles your name has been spread over the nation, it is not worth dying for. It is serious. Nobody cares about it when you talk about it. When you talk about it, they don’t care,” Ali Jarrah lamented.

 

The ex-goalkeeper who has been part of 1993 under 17 Ghana national team has called on the nation and the government to come to their aid for all their selfless sacrifices.

 

Ali Jarrah further disclosed that he is still paying his dues to the nation and had by far trained over 360 goalkeepers who have won laurels for the nation Ghana.

So, he travels to the underworld to recruit the best singer, drummer, guitarist, and pianist to form a great band for the ages”,

25-Year-Old Kwesi Hero To Empower The Girl Child Through Painting

Published

on

Artistry may not be one of the talents fancied in this part of the world, but there is no doubt that the country Ghana is so much blessed with a plethora of talents and more especially in the field of painting.

The country has produced some very contemporary and prolific artists in the field of painting who use unique and unconventional methods in their works.

Some of such great talents are Ibrahim Mahama, Paa Joe, Serge Attukwei Clottey, Zohra Opoku, and Adjo Kisser. The rest includes Latifah Idriss, Bright Ackwerh, Bernard Akoi-Jackson, Ama “Poetra” Diaka, Kwame Akoto-Bamfo, Worlasi, etc.

25-Year-Old Kwesi Hero To Empower The Girl Child Through Painting

Although many more of such artists remain unheard, one particular painter who is currently making waves is Joseph Odoom, known in the arts as Kwesi Hero.

Kwesi Hero specializes in interior and exterior paintings, drywall cleaning and wallpaper installation. He offers other services such as commercial and residential painting, paint project management, real estate contracts, skimming, as well as any form of creative piece.

Kwesi Hero, who is from Adzintem, a small town in the Central region went into professional painting after completing Asamankese Senior High School where he studied Visual Arts in 2014. As a Junior High School graduate, he understudied a man who gave him some foundational lessons in painting whenever school is on break.

25-Year-Old Kwesi Hero To Empower The Girl Child Through Painting

Currently residing in Nungua, a suburb of Accra, Kwesi aspires to build his paint house, Reliable Painting Service into a household name and to Empower the Girl Child through painting.

“I want to empower the girl child because here in Africa, particularly Ghana, most young girls have this perception that painting is for only men which is not. Girls can be better painters and it’s my aim to change that perception,” Kwesi Hero revealed.

Kwesi Hero currently coaches Gloria Edem Damalie, who studied Graphic Designing from the Takoradi Technical University. She is currently studying Building Technology and reading Advertising but has love for paper and wall painting.

Nana Addo Must Resign, He Is The Worst President Ever - Bulldog

Artist manager and Chief Executive of BullHaus Entertainment, Bulldog has in a recent interview described the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo as the worst president and must resign.

Speaking to 3Fm’s MzGee, Bulldog reiterated that President Akufo-Addo during the 2016 campaign period sounded convincing and promises to be different from most politicians that are regarded as liars.

“We all know most politicians are liars but Akufo Addo seemed he was going to be different you know when he started all his campaign and talking and talking,” he said.

Bulldog, when asked if the president has not been different as promised answered,

“he is the worst president ever”.

He further alleged that the president along with his Vice President, Bawumia who he described as the president’s hype-man should be put behind bars for allegedly sharing expired food items to the people in the North.

According to him, the president should have resigned after signing the Ameri Power deal which he later admitted he was misled into signing.

“Let us be honest. If I did that, I’d find myself in a place where… listen, Nana Akuffo Addo himself should’ve resigned by now when he said he was misled to sign a deal he knew about. A lawyer, somebody who has practiced law for how many years, they bring papers before you, you don’t look through it and you sign” Bulldog stated.

Bulldog, born Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson know for hard talks, however, did not fail to give credit to the President, Nana Akufo-Addo for Afronation beyond which he believes the president has failed in arresting the cedi against the dollar.

“The only thing I’m going to give Akufo Addo is Afronation. Apart from that, he’s done nothing. This is election year they’re about to lie to all of us. They said they were going to arrest the dollar. The dollar is all over the place. The hypeman is just talking,” he concluded
