Oko Vanderpuije builds replica Noah's Ark to save Accra residents from flood

The mayor of Ghana's capital city Alfred Oko Vanderpuije has reportedly built a replica of the biblical Noah's Ark following a dream that his beloved city would once again be flooded in the coming weeks.

The vessel which has been built to the dimensions specified in the book of Genesis and currently docked on a heavily flooded road next to the Kaneshie Market will provide shelter for those severely affected by the disaster.

Honourable Vanderpuije who recently named Africa's best mayor of the year maintained the floods had nothing to do with his outfit's inability to improve the city's drainage and sewage systems. "I had a dream that my beloved Accra will be flooded and it had nothing to do with the poor sewage systems. These floods may actually be a blessing in disguise."

He revealed plans to transform the vessel into a multi-purpose facility. "Apart from providing shelter for displaced persons, the ark will also sail residents of Accra to work if commercial drivers decide to call another strike any time during this raining season."

The mayor also assured officials of DVLA that his vessel is fully equipped with seat belts to ensure the safety of all passengers

#AccraFloods: President John Mahama Visits Goil Fuel Station Accident Scene

President John Dramani Mahama on Thursday visited the accident scene where over 100 people lost their lives on Wednesday night during torrential rains that hit the country.

This is what he told the media ...

"We have to take some measures to avoid this in the future. Often when these measures are drastic, you have a lot of sympathy and pressure not to take these measures. But I think the time has come for us to move houses out of the waterways. The public should understand that it is necessary to take such measures to save everybody else."

"This loss of life is catastrophic, almost unprecedented. A lot of people have lost their lives. I am at a loss of words to express how I feel. Many of them through the floods, many still through and many still through the fire incident as a result of the explosion that took place.

"Yesterday, the emergency services, including the military, police and the fire service were all called out to come and help. They managed to rescue a large number of people but unfortunately a large number of people lost their lives.

"I want to take the opportunity to commend the security services for their diligence.

"I express my condolences to the several who have lost relatives and the victims of the flood. We will do the cleanup and bring back to as normal as possible."

Ghanaian Musicians Must Work on their Look and Feel

The music business in Ghana has seen some laudable growth over the past few years with a proportional number of home grown artistes enjoying A - list status in Africa. This obviously can mainly be attributed to the talent and creativity that abounds in this lively and entertaining place.

Besides all the good things that are happening in the Ghana music arena, one thing that still lacks is the look and feel of artistes especially on stage. The physical presence and originality that is expected to be exhibited by your African performer is usually missing.

Patron Management Group (PMG) was responsible for Hip Life Artistes, Dobble and Rock X's costume at the Ghana Meets Naija Concert which perhaps put them among a few Ghanaian performers to clad tailored in Ghana cloths on the night. Sarkodie, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were all looking good in thier T-Shirts but they definitely would look better if they wore something African or even corporate. At least Di'Ja, Don Jazzy and Dr. Sid proved this when they made their first appearances on stage that night clad in well-tailored African designs.

CEO of PMG, Mr. Dickson Tsrakasu believes its high time Ghanaian performers begin to see themselves as tourism ambassadors and dress especially on stage to compliment that.

At least one contemporary Ghanaian musician who is travelling and rapping the world-over always in his African wear is M.anifest. This has obviously gained him massive followership and uniqueness in many unimaginable places across the world.

PMG has serious interest in working with musicians to help cater for their wardrobe. With a cliental base of politicians, diplomats, business men and women, the company is strategically positioning itself to work with the music industry.

In doing this, PMG is already working with Heart of Lions Entertainment to discover fresh music talents. The company also has a subsidiary called Patron Showtime Entertainment which is fully into media production thus making the quest to support the Ghana music industry even easier.

"Patron Showtime Entertainment is co-producing Rock X and Belce with Heart of Lion Entertainment. We are currently talking with JUPITA and his team for some big up-coming music projects in Ghana and beyond", Mr Tsrakasu told Tigo Music.

The company is also into transportation, farming and health care but it's clear that there is a new direction to invest into showbiz. "We are currently seeking to invest in to the music business and showbiz as a whole so we have made sure we have the equipment and the personnel", he added.

But companies like PMG and their CEO's can only do their best to support the music industry. The music makers and stakeholders themselves need to make a conscious effort to make their music and the industry grow.
