Hilda Akua, Former Miss Ghana USA 2012 was crowned Miss Universe Ghana 2015 at the Annual Miss Universe Ghana held in Ghana on the 29th of August 2015. She was selected the winner after going through a thorough judging process alongside 9 other contestants. The contestants were judged based on preliminary presentations, one-on-one interviews, and onstage presentation. Hilda acquired the highest number of points on all three categories, earning her the title, Miss Universe Ghana 2015. Now this is where things get messy! According to a source, a day after the competition, one of Hilda’s fellow pageant mates (Yaya) allegedly contacted a popular page on Instagram called RoadToMissUniverse and made accusations that Hilda bribed the Miss Universe Ghana directors to ensure her the title. She later let a popular blogger known as Yemmey Baba in on the gist. Is this a case of looser who cannot handle a defeat? Bloggers (including myself) live to ignite a juicy scandalous story no matter how true or false it is, however, I believe it is also our job to put the fire out after hearing the truth or at least hear the other side out. So check this out yall! After Yaya supposedly started Continue reading Miss Universe Ghana 2015 Controversy!

Every year on this day, I share a piece of me with The World. Why? You may ask. Well when you encounter a life changing situation like I did, you feel compelled to let The World know how much of a bad-ass you are 😎. I gotta admit that I was hesitant to write this particular one; a huge thank you to my very supportive friends who encouraged me to proceed with it. As I get older, I realize how much my “incident” shaped me into who I am today, and how much my good friends need to learn/understand this side of me.. Because honestly “this” has a lot to do with how I operate today.
Meeting new people is always a process for me because I’ll get asked questions, which means that I have to revisit that fateful day which has made this story a part of my introduction. Well my good friends, on this blessed day April 8th, 12 years ago…. I almost lost my right hand by accidentally getting pushed through a glass window, which severed my tendons, nerves, and arteries (therefore limiting my abilities to use my right hand). That incident was my Primary reason for coming to the U.S. After 7 surgeries (which included 3 skin grafting around my groin/abdomen), I stopped receiving treatment… Why? See when you accept your fate in life, you just have to let go of certain things that binds you to something that have caused you so much pain. Of Course that was not my best decision because I still very much need to have some more reconstruction done… However, I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
From the point I accepted that my life will never be the same, life got a lot easier in the sense that I learnt to work with the current situation at hand. My mother taught me how to write and make use of my left hand, which is now my dominant hand. I guess it is true that being left-handed uses the creative side of your brain….. See, right after my initial surgery in Africa, I started drawing on everything I could put my hand on (the left one Of Course 😉) which prompted my mother to buy me a drawing pad. From then on, I excelled in art in my former High School in Mesquite, and I guess that’s where my make up artistry skills alongside other skills derived from. I get asked a lot, if I was presented the opportunity to change the appearance of my hand, will I do it? Truth is that I probably won’t, now if the opportunity was presented to get rid of the pain I face in the coldest of winter or the hottest of summer, I will definitely jump on that! All I’m trying to say is, I have accepted that this is ME!
Today, for the first time ever, I have decided to share with you all a picture of my hand. This is not a pity post, so please, don’t feel sorry for me. I may have it worse than some people, but a lot of people have it worst than me. To everybody suffering from an ailment/disability e.t.c.. Always remember that “everything happens for a reason” and that God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. I write this to inspire. We all face obstacles that deter us from our dreams, does that means we should give up? Absolutely not. It only means we have to work twice as hard to make those dreams a reality.
My dear friends, I promised myself I would not make this post a lengthy one, so I will stop here for now. Just be aware that this is merely a quarter of my journey. Next time you see me, don’t be shy to ask about my hand, staring at it only makes the situation more awkward. Stay blessed readers!

The Nakala Tv Series is not only one of the finest musicals ever made, but one of the finest Series of any type ever made In Senegambia. Momodou Lamin Touray and his casts take us through an adventure. It’s an appealing, touching and spectacularly over the top interpretation of one of the most sensational stories, with the fuse of music. Making it the first Musical TV Series from Senegambia.
The impetus behind the Nakala Tv Series is a commitment to promote greater participation and acceptance of the Senegambian performing artists internationally. Nakala brings together the best and the most talented actors in the United Kingdom, from The Gambia.
The project will utilize music to reveal the hidden talents of The Gambia. It will also draw attention of other people in the entertainment business, from around the world to pay attention to the growing film industry in The Gambia.
The project is designed as a public service, and will be released on different TV channels, Internet and if possible DVD’s will be also released commercially
The project is first and foremost concerned with Senegambians living in the diaspora and their encounters. For example, immigration and migration, love and betrayal, family, friends and other issues affecting us in the diaspora and our connection back home, The Gambia. It will simply document the positive sides of young Gambians doing great.
With contributions from the biggest and brightest Gambian stars in the UK Nollywood industry, plus those from other creative avenues, I hope to construct a powerful and harrowing experience that will tell the full story of Gambians in the diaspora for the first time.
Momodou Lamin Touray recently appeared, in the Norwegian-American television series, Lilyhammer (season 2 and 3). In his own words, I am excited to be a part of this production of Lilyhammer. The role of “Balotelli” has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I am truly grateful for the chance to portray such a diverse character.” He also appeared in five different TV series in Norway. Presently he is acting on one of the biggest TV Seris called (Det Tredje Oyet) The Third Eye…. which is a crime series.
In his home country, The Gambia he worked for a radio station called Radio 1 FM, for almost 6 years. He was responsible for interviewing both national and international artists and was part of the marketing team. He was the voice behind most Radio adverts and was the programme leader (host) for one of the most Continue reading On The Spotlight: Momodou Lamin Touray – Gambian Actor/Producer/Filmmaker
