Famous Ghanaian Actress and Producer Yvonne Nelson has a new production called “If Tomorrow Never Comes“. The movie was inspired by a boy Kweku, who suffered from “Cerebral Malformation“, which basically paralyzed him. He couldn’t talk, walk, sit, or stand. This little angel died 2 weeks after the production of the movie. What confused me about this production is that kweku was cast to play himself in the movie. I’m sure special care and precautions were taken but I’m I the only that thinks that they could’ve gotten a talented child actor to play the part?
There is a reason why the boy’s biological mother did not play his mom in the movie, even though the inspiration stems from her son. Yet, Yvonne played the role…..Why? Because she is a skilled actress, and can bring the story to light. Now my question is, why couldn’t they do the same for Kweku.
I highly understand that she’s trying to raise awareness for his condition, (which by the way I respect and admire her for that), however, I believe they could have gotten a talented child actor to execute the part. Yvonne grew quite fond of kweku during the production, she took to social media to express her condolences and feelings about his death. We deeply sympathize with her and Kweku’s mother for their lost. May his soul Rest In Peace!
What are your thoughts on the situation?

OK Fellas, I know you guys must be sick and tired of hearing that African men are not romantic at all. So in-order not to fall into that category, your girl msnabou got your back! I’m going to help you guys have the best Valentine’s Day with your ladies. Somethings on the list should be obvious, but I understand that not everybody is cut from the same cloth; therefore, I am going to list down pointers that you will hopefully use, to make your lady feel special.
DO celebrate Valentine’s Day – so what if it’s just another commercialized day and you don’t need one day to show her how much you love her (and no, we don’t want to hear all of that). The point is, Valentine’s day has become a day to celebrate love, romance and your significant other. So don’t be the Grinch that stole Valentine’s Day and please be in the spirit! Ladies are generally more into special holidays and they usually are the ones doing most of the planning, it will be nice for once if you surprised her with a fun-filled romantic day! We love surprises! (hint)
DON’T forget – in fact, this one has to be the most important pointer. You can’t celebrate the day, if you forget the date …..right? We know you might have a busy work schedule, but even if it means jotting down a reminder on your mobile phone, by all means, DO IT! Continue reading Valentine’s Day DO’s & DON’Ts For African Men!→

As Reported by The Guardian,
The extent of female genital mutilation in the US has been exposed following pressure from campaigners, including a global campaign against FGM led by Jaha Dukureh, a 25-year-old mother from Atlanta, who was cut as a baby in her home country of Gambia. With the backing of the guardian , Dukureh launched a petition last May successfully calling for a new prevalence study into FGM and for a working group to be set up. Jaha was recently honored with an Award by President Bush Sr.
