The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana’s Leading Events and Audio-Visual Production Company, Charterhouse Productions and Executive Director of The Multiple Concepts Group, Mrs. Theresa Ayoade, has been honored the MUSIC PILLAR AWARD at the fifth edition of the Musicians Union of Ghana’s annual Presidential Grand Ball.

The Music Pillar Award is given by the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), its National Executive Committee and the Executive Board of the Presidential Grand Ball to individuals or organizations to recognize, appreciate and celebrate their outstanding contributions to the development of the Music Industry in Ghana.

Previous winners of this prestigious award include, Betty Mould Idrisu (former Minister for Education), Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings (former First Lady of Ghana), Osei Kwame Despite (CEO, Despite Group of Companies), Dr. Kwabena Duffuor (former Minister of Finance and Economic Planning of Ghana), Apostle Kwadwo Sarfo of the Christo Asafo Mission and Ibrahim Mahama (Engineer, Businessman and brother of Ghana’s former President, John Mahama).

Theresa Ayoade’s impact in the Music Industry and indeed the Creative Arts in Ghana is indeed commendable, having led the team at Charterhouse for 17years, since its inception in 2000, in creating some of the most loved, most patronized and most inspiring entertainment brands such as THE GHANA MUSIC AWARDS (18yrs) STARS OF THE FUTURE (5yrs), GHANA ROCKS (6yrs), MISS MALAIKA (14yrs), INTERNATIONAL MUSIC CONCERTS, STAGE PRODUCTIONS and several TV productions.

Events like the GHANA MUSIC AWARDS project the Ghana Music Industry to the world whilst celebrating and honoring hardworking Ghanaian musicians to the delight of their fans. Reality shows like STARS OF THE FUTURE discovered stars like Irene Logan, Efya, Wiyaala, Kaakie, YaaYaa, Adina and a host of others, whilst platforms like Miss Malaika have provided the entertainment industry with personalities such as Berla Mundi, Regina Van Helvert and several others. Not forgetting the wonderful musical experiences from International Artistes like JAY Z, BUSTA RHYMES, AKON, UMOJA, BARNEY and many others which have brought pleasure to Ghanaians over the years.

The product of University of Ghana and Achimota School and mother of two is passionate about Women, the Youth and the Creative Arts and dreams of a future where the Creative Arts will take its place as one of the most viable industries in Ghana, providing sustainable employment for the gifted amongst us whilst providing homegrown entertainment to satisfy the leisure needs of Ghanaians. Going forward, Theresa intends to embark on a campaign, together with other practitioners of the Creative Arts industry to push for policies that will escalate the growth of the Ghanaian Creative Arts Industry and most importantly secure the financial security of the retirement of artistes in their old age.

She also looks forward to creating more platforms for creative expression of talented youth whilst providing more entertainment to Ghanaians.

The 2017 edition of the MUSIGA Grand ball was held at the Banquet Hall, State House, Accra, was chaired by CEO of the National Petroleum Authority, Hassan Tampuli with His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic in attendance.

The prestigious annual event seeks to honor people who have contributed immensely towards the music industry in Ghana. It is aimed at raising funds for aged musicians in the country, so they could benefit from their works in their retirement.

‘Winning Miss Malaika, or simply just participating has changed my outlook on life drastically. One thing I took away from the experience is that in as much as outer beauty is important, the growth that happens inwardly is what will make you stand out, and that is exactly what Miss Malaika gave to me and I believe to other ladies who ever participated’ – reigning queen, Miss Jasmine Djang.

In a little over 80 days from now a new queen takes over from Jasmine Djang. But the journey to that unveil as history would have it has never been easy.

Prior to this very first encounter, pageant organizers Charterhouse launched the social media campaign, “Tag A Queen” which saw many Ghanaians post photos of ladies they deemed fit to wear the crown and tagging the various Charterhouse handles with the hashtag, #Malaika21. That process saw some 32 gorgeous ladies automatically graduated to the semifinal stage of auditions which will look a little past the beauty of face and figure and test for intellect and more.

Sitting in on the search panel with the task of selecting the most beautiful among the lot on Saturday 24th July were Showbiz personality, PR Practitioner and Entrepreneur, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku with award winning actor, fashion designer, Elikem Kumordzi and Miss Sharon Coffie, Miss Malaika 2012 Queen. Between the three astute judges, 30 beautiful, intelligent and charming ladies graduated to the final stage which is the FINISHING SCHOOL.

Published

on

Ebuka took on the first BBNaija Shine Ya Eye live eviction show Sunday night, but there were no goodbyes – just surprises!

After the ladies and gentlemen of the house settled in last Sunday, Biggie threw in the second twist of the season. He told the housemates that two from among them were Wild Cards and they had a week to figure them out. If they successfully did this, the two Wild Card housemates would be evicted immediately. Failure to do so meant they get to remain in the competition and battle it out for the grand prize.

The housemates investigated, questioned, and tried hard to figure out who they were all week long. The viewers were not left out in the guessing game until Thursday when Biggie revealed that Maria and Pere were the Wild Cards.

During their Diary Room sessions Sunday afternoon, majority of the housemates put forward Liquorose and Jaypaul as their prime suspects, to the amusement of viewers. However, the cat was let out of the bag when Ebuka asked the Wild Cards – Maria and Pere – to reveal themselves. This left the housemates surprised but impressed at how well they concealed their identities.

The game has now shifted gears as both Maria and Pere are officially in the game to win. Ebuka revealed that both of them will have exclusive nomination powers on Monday night, when the housemates exercise their nomination rights for the first time this season. Nominations will begin after the Head of House game scheduled for 6pm.

Abeg is the headline sponsor of Big Brother Naija season 6, and the associate sponsor is Patricia.
