Mahama Promises To Transform NAFTI Into Multimedia University

Former President John Dramani Mahama has said if voted into power in the 2020 general elections, his government will change the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) into a modern Multimedia University.

Here, students will be taught various courses in creative arts.

He said this during the launch of the party’s 2020 manifesto at the University of Professional Studies, in Accra on Monday, September 7.

He also said the National Theatre will be refurbished.

He had already made this plan known in an interview with TV XYZ a few weeks ago.

“It was imperative for the National Film and Television Institute to be converted into a multimedia university where students are groomed on the various branches that exist in the creative arts industry”, he had said.

He added in that interview with that: “infrastructure is a driver and it propels economic prosperity but I’m saying that at the same time everything we do should be geared towards creating jobs for the youth. That is why in the next administration that I head, everything will be geared towards creating more jobs in, say, the creative arts. You can imagine how many people can be employed in the creative arts industry as film directors, as sound engineers, as sound men. Nigeria has got it right and how Nigeria did it, we can follow the same path and move our creative arts to the next level.”

“I’ve suggested that NAFTI should be turned into a modern Multimedia University that will train sound people, musicians and all of them. And create a conducive environment like building theatres and studios so that when a movie director shoots his movie, he will not have to share the proceeds with a private theatre 50/50 but rather the government theatre will just take 25% percent so that the movie maker can also invest the money made in producing other movies. Creating studios where they can use the studio at a subsidized fee.”

“The government should create a platform for young producers to come and showcase what they’ve been able to do. How much will it cost to give them the National Theatre, have an Accra film festival, collaborate with the private sector to do an Accra film festival, the government can give prizes to the best movie? There are people doing Accra fashion week so you help them. Let all the fashion designers come and showcase the new models. People will come from Nigeria, they will bring money in, they will stay in hotels. We need to unleash our creative juices and I feel very passionate about this.”

“I will go to Obinim to collect money”- Black sherif

Bishop Obinim trends on social media after he made a reaction to Black sherif’s second sermon (video)

Bishop Obinim and teenage musician Black Sherif, two of Ghana’s top trend masters, have clearly established mutual respect and appreciation.

Ghanaians are unlikely to be surprised if the two appear in a video (or maybe a song) together in the near future, especially since ‘Killer Blacko’ stated that he is willing to meet the controversial pastor in exchange for money.

When the host of the Delay Show told him that she thinks the preacher liked him, Black Sherif remarked, “I want to take a bill to him.”

Despite the fact that Black Sherif has never met Bishop Obinim, he believes the pastor’s viral breakdown of his Second Sermon song demonstrates his appreciation for his musical talent.

Meet the man of God who wanted to be like Jesus; fasted 40 days/40 nights

Some religious zealots made it a challenge to follow in the footsteps of their Lord and Personal Saviour, Jesus Christ, who fasted for forty days and forty nights, as the Bible claims, and this statement is truly accurate.

In Hosea 4:6, the Bible tells believers, and in Isaiah 5:13, the Bible says, “My people are in captivity because they lack wisdom.”

According to the information gathered, the believer, who had left his wife and two children in Lagos and returned to the hamlet, engaged in evangelism efforts in order to spiritually strengthen himself and then went into the forest to seek God’s face and might.

“Nobody Wants To Marry Us Because They say We Are Cursed” Gloria Narrate the story of her family

Gloria and her siblings were born in good health until their family was afflicted by an ailment they didn’t understand.

She developed this weird condition after being scratched by a stick, which left a little wound. She was taken to the hospital and given antibiotics to prevent infection.

But the little wound became bigger and bigger with each passing day. Her legs swelled every day as a result of the little incision, and she now can’t walk properly and no one wants to be with them.

The irony is that children who resemble their father develop the sickness, while those who resemble their mother remain well.

Everyone has rejected all of the siblings who have this problem at this time, and no one wants to marry them.

Gloria and her sisters are curious about the cause of this ailment. They want to learn more about what caused this condition and why just half of their family is impacted while the other half is unaffected.

Their father suffers from the same ailment, but it only lately manifested itself. He wasn’t born with it, and he was perfectly healthy until a stone struck him, and he scraped the region, causing his legs to swell.

Despite her best efforts, their mother finds it difficult to sustain four of her children who are suffering from an undiagnosed illness.
