Car Talk / International Automobile Companies Opening Factories In Ghana by RandomAfrican1: 11:29am


The Ghanaian government’s automotive development policy which is largely aimed at revitalising the domestic automotive industry appears to be yielding some positive results as more International Automobile companies have announced plans to set up assembly plants in the country.

The recent developments in the sector has had the Managing Director of CFAO Motors Ghana has speaking. In a recent interview, he said that, “our group is working on that; obviously by the end of 2021 we will be present as an assembly plant [in the local market] also,” Managing Director Paulo Fernandes told said this when speaking with a Business media outfit in Accra, in response to a question on whether the makers of the cars that CFAO distributes in Ghana had plans of assembling locally.

Mr. Fernandes remarked that, “to have an assembly plant in Ghana is a huge opportunity for global car manufacturers to produce new vehicles at cheaper prices for the population—and I think it’s a really good idea.”

According to the CFAO MD, the move by automobile companies around the world wanting to set up factories in Ghana affirms the confidence of the carmakers and CFAO in the domestic automobile industry.

A number of carmakers have announced their intentions to set up assembly plants in the Ghanaian market, following the government’s launch of an automotive development policy to encourage investment in the sector. German automaker Volkswagen (VW) has already begun assembling some of its brands locally.

Mr. Fernanades however echoed the need for a ban on importation of vehicles into the country for the industry to truly thrive. He particularly mentioned the need for a ban on used and salvaged vehicles, which, he argued, was “a good thing for the environment and for the future of the country”.

“If the government will support us—like placing a ban on used-car imports—the new car market will grow and it will be good for everyone. It is dangerous for the growing nation to continue to purchase vehicles that are not fit to be driven in Ghana.”

Apart from support from the government, the CFAO boss said that the local automobile industry will need support from the banks, in terms of providing secure and sustainable means of funding for potential car buyers.

Travel / As An African In Paris, Where To Get Groceries And Food by RandomAfrican1: 8:42am


As an African in Paris, it can be quite tricky and dicey, especially if you are an Anglophone (English-speaking) African in Paris, France.

In Paris, you won’t really feel out of place since there are also many black folks as yourself all around, the challenge however, especially for non-French speaking Africans would be the language barrier – and this one factor is huge as to whether or not you will enjoy your stay in the city, especially if you are not just in town as a tourist, but as an actual resident. Thus, it is advisable to have knowledge of some basic French at least, before you venture into town, especially if you are coming in alone with no friends or family to help give you some soft-landing.

Neighbourhoods With Sizeable African Population

The neighbourhoods where you will find relatively significant African population are Chateau Rouge, Strasbourg Saint-Denis, Saint-Denis Basilique, Bobigny, Argenteuil, Sarcelles and some few other areas. Do however note th majority of the Africans in Paris are from French speaking African nations like Senegal, Mali, the Congo’s, Ivory Coast, Cameroun, Togo, Benin etc.

As an English-speaking African, places where nationals from English speaking African countries like Ghana and Nigeria can be mostly seen are Sarcelles, Argenteuil and Bobingy.

Groceries
Food is an important factor as to how enjoyable once stay in a place is, thus it is important to know where to get the right foods and at the right prices.

Almost all neighbourhoods in Paris has a major mall, you would either see an Auchan, Leclerc or Carrefour somewhere in your area. All these malls stock some relatable food items from which you can make a good meal, but to get authentic African ingredients, or must I say, ingredients that are close to home (even if not exactly), then you might want to venture the African markets or shops.

The major markets where African foods can be found Chatear Rouge and Saint Denis. But Chateau Rouge should be your first go-to for food items.

There you are likely to find food ingredients of all sorts that a suitable to your country’s dish irrespective of which part of the continent you come from.

In some neighbourhoods, you will also find small African shops where you can quickly dahs in to buy an item or two on days when you do not intend to do bulk shopping or are in need of an item or two (thus there would be no need to travel all the way to Chateau Rouge).

If you are lucky, you will find a shop in your area that stocks some African food. Most of the time, you will see words like ‘Africain,’ ‘Asiatique,’ or ‘Exotique’ written on them.

And if you are looking for an online shopping option for African foods in Paris, then I must say that it is likely going to be a difficult task, one, considering that most of the things would be in French, even when you have to follow-up by phone call. And two, there is practically no online service for African foods as at the time of writing this article… especially for English-speaking African foods.

Celebrities / I Have Many Girlfriends – Ice Prince by RandomAfrican1: 8:12am On Sep 22


Ice Prince was recently on a show with Nadine of Beats 99.9 FM to premier his new song with Tekno, titled ‘Make up Your Mind.’

During the interview, he disclosed that he had not been able to release music for about a year now because he got signed to an international record label, and this restricts how often he is allowed to drop music and also because the process for the deal actually took a long time before it finally got sealed.

The new record label he has been signed to is 300 Entertainment, where the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Fetty Wap and Young Tap are also signees.

Talking about his new single with Tekno, he disclosed that they have so many unreleased projects together, so much so that it is enough to make an album or two – he further disclosed that the new single was produced by Stunna Beatz, an up and coming Nigerian producer.

At a point in the interview, Beats FM On Air Personality (OAP), Nadine asked the musician, “so do you have someone special in your life… like a girlfriend.”

Ice Prince responded saying, “ah I have many o,” to the bewilderment and awe of the host.

Triky was quite bubbly all through the interview, Ebuka even had to ask, “so why are you so excited, one would think that you would be upset for not getting into the final week.”

Ebuka asked again, “you seemed to be everybody’s friend, but you weren’t particularly close to any, how’s that?”

“Yes, it’s hustle 101 Ebuka,” Trikytee responded laughing.

Ebuka also touched on the friendships he formed in the house and specifically asked why he chose Laycon as his deputy when he became Head of House, even though he had nominated the rapper/musician a couple of times.

The ex housemate answered saying that “It was because I felt guilty you know… I actually like him, he hasn’t done anything to me so I just thought i should choose him as deputy to make up for nominating him.”

Bovi Ugboma has sealed his place as one of Nigeria and Africa’s foremost comedians, and being one who’s abreast with the times, he has moved his craft online where he features in a number of YouTube series.

One of his recent series is ‘Banana Republic.’

Banana republic is a sort of pseudo Republic of Nigeria “online,” and it is one which would crack your ribs even as Bovi tries to feign seriousness as a newly sworn in president.

In the first episode which I feature here, Bovi is sworn into office as a new president, and the shenanigans is something to behold.

This series is one to be enjoyed, and I believe that you can start by watching the first of a series of episodes with this link; https://africaatrandom.com/watch-bovis-new-youtube-series-banana-republic/

Celebrities / Bbnaija: Why ‘LMAO Ozo’ Was Trending On Global Twitter Last Night by RandomAfrican1: 7:52am On Sep 21


'Lmao Ozo' was one of the top trends on global twitter last night… and your guess must be as good as mine, because of course! It was inspired by our very own Ozoemena Chukwu of BBNaija Season 5 fame.

Well… the main incident that caused ‘Lmao Ozo’ to become a top trend last night was that as Ebuka announced that Ozo had become the 15th housemate to be evicted from the reality TV show, the male housemate quickly went round to give his fellow housemates ‘half-hearted’ handshakes and hugs, all in a bid to reserve the last and best for his in-house crush, Nengi.

During his hug with Nengi, he said to her, “I will be waiting for you outside… Remember the thing I told you, that I will be waiting for you on the other side.” This was all during Big Brother’s famous 10-seconds countdown.

After the mini-speech to Nengi, Ozo then attempted to go for a kiss… all of this was happening even as he one time “bestest friend” Dorathy was snugging at his shirt from behind for a final goodbye hug… but our in-house lover boy’s stimuli could not be distracted from his dearest Nengi Rebecca!

Ozo’s attempt to go in for the final kiss was as expected, swerved by Nengi.

This got me thinking… “Ozo, Nengi has used you to catch cruise for the entirety of the show without giving you as much as an opportunity for a peck on the cheek, so were you expecting like a full blown kiss at this point??“

Well, this episode appeared to have caught fire on twitter as many memes have been developed from it, backed by the trend phrase, ‘Lmao Ozo.’

Even after being swerved of the kiss, Ozo on his way out shouted, “I love you Nengi!”…

Me: Ahhhhhh baba Ozo… Ahhhh *Mouth wide open.*

Some noticeable aspects of all the memes were Vee and Dora’s reactions when Nengi swerved Ozo’s kiss. The faces Vee and Dora made were priceless! LOL!

Politics / BREAKING: Obaseki Wins Edo State Elections by RandomAfrican1: 3:19pm On Sep 20


In an interesting twist of events in Edo State, Nigeria, it appears that the sitting governor, Godwin Obaseki, has won over the APC candidate, Pastor Ize-Iyamu, who was backed by Edo state political godfather, Comrade Oshiomole.

It is widely known that the sitting governor of the state used to be a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) before having a major fall out with his supposed political godfather and governorship predecessor, Adams Oshiomole.

This caused Governor Obaseki to leave the APC and pitch camp with the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and then subsequently became their candidate for the election.

The lead up to the election was feisty as the APC machinery was sent in full force into Edo state to ensure that Obaseki is ousted for betraying their party. In fact, it is believed that the Federal might of the Nigerian state was behind a plot to see to it that the state goes back under the control of the APC party.

The national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu was even at a point forced to call Obaseki an ‘ingrate’ for betraying the party.

Final provisional results sighted by Africa At Random, coming out of the stables of the Independent Electoral Commision (INEC), shows that Godwin Obaseki has taken a wide lead over the APC candidate, and he is most likely to be declared the winner of this weekend’s gubernatorial election.

The total result is looking like;

PDP – 307,955

APC – 223, 619

Vote margin – 84,336

The question now is, ‘is the the end of “godfatherism” in Edo state’s body politics?’ Is this the end of “godfatherism” in the body politics of Nigeria as a whole?… Only time will tell.

There is an upcoming show down between both parties in Ondo state, and it is known that the APC national leader has clearly stated his bias (of course) for the APC candidate there. Many of Tinubu’s critics have stated that, he seems to want to hold an entrenched godfather position in the Nigerian political sphere and they are hell bent to see that broken.

Romance / My Husband Is The Boss At Home – Ghanaian Lady CEO by RandomAfrican1: 1:21pm On Sep 19


The Chief Executive Officer of the Hollard Group in Ghana, Mrs. Patience Akyianu, has said that desptie the many high positions she holds in society, she still sees submission to her husband as an important and needed part of her Christian way of living.

She made this comment whiles speaking with YFM’s Rev. Erskine on the Y Leaderboard Series.

“We are a Christian family and we try and implement Christian principles in our home. Over time, it hasn’t always been like this. We have matured in our faith.

“I try to adapt to the requirements of my various environment. Home is not work and in the home, it is very clear that my husband is the boss.”

It is easy for me because just as many women wear different hats and switch a lot, it is easy for us,” she said.

Mrs. Akyianu noted that it is necessary to have an understanding of what is required of her as a wife. She believes that this rids her off any form of confusion on how to act where and when.

She says that it remains a surprise to her when people ask her whether or not she has issues and conflicts adjusting in her role as a corporate leader and a wife.

In her opinion, the family is important no matter your position in this world.

Addressing the issue of women in leadership and their role in the family she stated that, “I don’t know any woman who has gone to the highest level and doesn’t want a husband; there are actually a few. But most women pretend until it is too late. If we all agree that we want to be married, why then do you want to do the wrong things to send away your man or disorganize your family. It is just about knowing how to adapt.”

Music/Radio / Diddy Executive Produced ‘twice As Tall’ Album For Free – Burna Boy by RandomAfrican1: 8:24am On Sep 17


Burna Boy in August let the world in on the fact that hiphop big wig, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was going to be the executive producer for his fifth studio album, Twice As Tall. The 15-track album was released last month, complete with a variety of features from Naughty By Nature, Stormzy, Chris Martin, Sauti Sol and Youssou N’Dour and it has been raking in the numbers.

As the Nigerian Afrobeat icon continues to promote his new album, he sat down with Douglas Jekan for the Nigeria-based PGM Club. During the interview, the Grammy-nominated artist said he hoped partnering with Diddy would “build a solid bridge” between himself and other audiences and went on to reveal that the REVOLT Media & TV chairman executive produced Twice As Tall for no charge.

“I wanted this [album] to build a stronger bridge between, basically, all people of color,” Burna Boy said. “The album was already about 80 percent done before I got Diddy involved. Getting Diddy involved, first of all, me and Diddy are now one bridge. Then, it’s like a tree; it just keeps going.”

Oluwa Burna as he is affectionately called, explained that with the help Diddy rendered, he was able to connect with certain top notch producers and collaborators — including Naughty By Nature and Timbaland — for the project.

“That’s the bridge… and it goes far beyond that… because guess what Diddy didn’t take no money from me,” he continued. “He gets two points royalties, which he gives back to me,” he added.

“The only thing that’s changed is now everybody sees what’s been going on. I’ve been this person. If I win a Grammy for this album, it’s because it’s a great album, just like the last one.”

Whiles speaking with The New York Times a couple of weeks ago, Diddy called Burna “a revolutionary.”

“The thing that I learned about him is the importance of what he’s doing for his nation and representing the people that aren’t really heard globally,” said the music mogul. “Through this album, I think it’s important for Africa to be heard. And so it’s bigger than just an album.”

Foreign Affairs / Rawlings Receives New Malian Military Leaders In His Home In Ghana by RandomAfrican1: 7:20am On Sep 17


A Former President of the Republic of Ghana, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, who handed over to another civilian government in year 2001 after ruling the country for almost 20 years (both as a military head of state and then as a civilian president), has admonished the new rulers in Mali to use the transition period to exhibit exceptional leadership for the country and see to it that it becomes the beginning of a prosperous period for the people.

The former President made the statement when he was called upon in his home in Accra, Ghana by a four-man delegation of the National Committee for the Salvation of the People (CNSP) led by its Chairman, Colonel Assimi Goïta on Tuesday.

Rawlings asked the current leaders in Mali to mobilise their people into taking up productive activity through a positive vision to propel the country’s development.

He told them that there is the need to empower and encourage Malian citizens to own their political climate and to improve on the quality of multiparty democracy that Western powers “have hung around our necks.”

“The level of corruption that has become an integral part of multiparty democracy has created a general climate of stress and tension that may destabilize some areas in our region.

It is unfortunate that the world is being forced into multiparty democracy with corruption and violence rather than other forms of democratic practices with none or minimal corruption.

Unfortunately, the West appears to favour corruptible political tendencies in order to continue to dominate our security and economy,” the former President stated.

The former Ghanaian leader went on to advise the Malian transitional unit to consistently ensure that they govern with humility and diligence and whiles remaining an inspiration to the people to fight and defy corruption and injustice.

Rawlings made it known that he even though he was dutifully passing on ECOWAS leadership’s concerns (as should be the norm) he also believed in the need to share his own political experiences and observations with visitors as he had had similar experiences in his life time.

The meeting between Mr. Rawlings and the Malian leadership took place after ECOWAS leaders held an Extraordinary meeting with the Malian leadership at Peduase in Ghana, to discuss political recent developments in Mali.

Colonel Assimi Goïta was accompanied by Colonel Ismaël Wagué, Major Talibe Konte and Captain Demba N’daw. Also present was the Malian Ambassador to Ghana, Abdoul Kader Toure.

Family / Ghana: Husbands Can Be Jailed For 2 Years For Refusing To Eat Their Wives Food by RandomAfrican1: 12:07pm On Sep 13

The Central Regional Coordinator of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) in Ghana, Superintendent George Appiah-Sakyi recently reiterated that by law, it is an offense for husbands to reject or refuse to eat their wives’ food because this constitutes a form of “emotional abuse”.

According to the police officer, such reculcitrants husbands could be charged for emotional abuse and which has the possibilities of getting them jailed for a maximum of two years or to a fine of 500 penalty units which is equivalent to GH¢6,000 or both when found guilty.

He said this at whiles addressing a sensitization workshop for Muslim Women. During his speech, he also admonished husbands not to beat or molest their wives in anyway even if they are being insulted. He rather suggests that they report the wives to the police station closest by and not take the law into their own hand since verbal assault is also an offense that can be addressed by law.

“If your husbands refuse to eat your food and make you unhappy and causes you emotional pain, you can also report them to the police. If your husband comes home late and causes you to be unhappy you can make a case at DOVVSU,” he said.

He then went on to add that women who refuse to give sex to their husbands should equally be reported because refusal of sex to a legal partner is also a violation which is grounded in law and amounts to emotional abuse which is punishable under the Domestic Violence Act 732 of 2007.

“If your wife wears jeans to sleep and causing you emotional abuse it’s an offence and you can report her to DOVVSU,” Superintendent Appiah-Sakyi stated.

“Beyond its current base in Djibouti, the PRC [People’s Republic of China] is very likely already considering and planning for additional overseas military logistics facilities to support naval, air, and ground forces,” the report says in part.

The report categorically mentions that China has likely considered locations for military logistics facilities in Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Seychelles, Tanzania, Angola, and Tajikistan.

It added that China and Cambodia have publicly denied having signed an agreement to provide the plan with access to Cambodia’s Ream Naval Base.

TV/Movies / Bbnaija: Erica To Be Disqualified? by RandomAfrican1: 7:01am On Sep 06


Last night and the early hours of this morning, the Big Brother Naija House was one full of drama, and the main player in all of these drama was none other than Erica Nlewedim. The extent of the drama is such that there is a high chance that the housemate would be disqualified later on Sunday.

The highlight of Erica’s issues after the Saturday party was her confrontation of fellow housemate Laycon in the early hours of Sunday. It can be recalled that during the eviction show last Sunday, Ebuka the show host asked Laycon about his claims that Erica had tried to kiss him on a number of occasions. Laycon admitted this but added that Erica was intoxicated the whole time the incident happened. This did not seem to go down well with Erica who confronted Laycon that day, but the male housemate tried to avoid the confrontation.

Erica seemed to still be harbouring this is her heart even after a week of the incident. She appeared quite intoxicated and angered during the party decided to take her frustrations on the rapper of a housemate. She spewed a number of asperaging things about Laycon. She admitted to only trying to kiss him once and that she was only attracted to his brains and that she had no form of sexual attraction to him.

She went on to add that her fellow housemate (Laycon) was skinny and not her type, she also issued some words of harm and threatening death. At a point, she stated emphatically that he [Laycon] would kill himself later in life – this comment has drawn a lot of condemnation on social media as it goes against Big Brother’s rule of threatening violence or harm against a fellow housemate.

Sports / FIFA Is Looking Into Didier Drogba’s Disqualification For FA Presidency by RandomAfrican1: 3:32pm On Sep 03


World football governing body, FIFA, has set up a Committee to look into the ongoing electoral dispute in the Ivorian Football Federation (FIF), of which centre stage is the disqualification of football legend Didier Drogba from contesting the position of President.

The Committee will be hearing from all stakeholders, including the former Chairman of FIF’s electoral body, René Diby, FIF’s General Secretary, Sam Etiassé and, possible, Didier Drogba, whose candidacy is at the centre of the upheaval.

René Diby resigned his position after Etiassé accused him of accepting Drogba’s application due to public pressure and some alleged death threats.

The Committee is set to consist of two representatives from FIFA – Rolf Tanner and Sarah Solémalé – two yet-to-be-named representatives from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and one rep from the Union of West African Football Associations (WAFA).

The Background Story

Didier Drogba’s hopes of contesting the Ivorian Football presidency polls appeared to be over just last Thursday after his application was invalidated. However, his aspiration seemed to have been handed a lifeline by football’s world governing body, FIFA who directed that the polls be suspended citing possible “third party interference.“

“Pending your documents and information, we invite you to suspend all actions relating to the electoral process until further notice,” FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura wrote to FIF’s electoral commission.

“Some say that the commission has been prevented from exercising its activities in total calm and an independent manner because of outside interference.”

Reports are that FIFA has also asked for a full list of Electoral Commission members and the minutes from four meetings, including one in July where the new electoral commission president was elected and one in August involving FIF’s Executive Committee.

Drogba’s candidacy had been initially validated, despite some issues with his application, leading to the suspension of the elections and FIF’s Electoral Committee.

FIFA, however, reinstated the Committee and the elections, with the Ivorian football electoral body opting to rather invalidate the footballer’s candidacy.

This has created a lot of brouhaha in the Football fraternity and casting a lot of shadows on the upcoming elections, it is therefore not surprising that the world football governing body has chosen to step in and straighten things out.
