LAPAZ NIGHT MARKET

On normal days, pedestrians will be spotted moving in all directions, going about their various duties, child beggars and hawkers are not left out.

It is an interesting site to behold every night, as the pedestrian walkway on the Lapaz stretch of the N1 Highway is turned into a market center.

On normal days, pedestrians will be spotted moving in all directions, going about their various duties, child beggars and hawkers are not left out.

The situation changes abruptly when the sun settles below the horizon, “Night Market”, they call it.

The night market begins usually after 6:00pm and lasts till after 10:00pm.

For some, the inadequate well-structured market centers in Lapaz and its neighboring communities, coupled with the immense pressure and overcrowdings in the few available markets, is the reason for this growing menace. The need for a market center has necessitated the conversion of the pedestrian walkway into a mini-market.

Among stuff sold on the “walkway –market” include clothes, ladies’ bags, ornaments, shoes and fruits.

Hawkers hoard their wares adopting several interesting techniques to attract the attention of the passer-byers, from singing to ringing of bells, clapping hands and even “aggressive approach system” which is often employed by the clothe sellers.

One could just dump a nice dress on your shoulder as you walk by and tell you how cheap the prize is, and how ready he or she is for a considerable bargain.

Despite the interesting things that take place at the Lapaz “night market”, the situation poses a lot of threat and inconvenience to drivers, pedestrians and the customers of the night marketers.

Most pedestrians are forced to walk on the road instead of the walkway, some unlucky passer-byers who crush into arranged wares are forced to make payment for the wares especially if they are edible stuff, others runaway with hails of insults on their heads.

And now she serves a hot highlife tune showing the young musicians’ dexterity and versatility. Her ability to switch genres so easily and smoothly prompted Connect Fm’s Kwamina Otto to question her genre of bias…

Sally M said “I can do Reggae, Dancehall, Afrobeats, and even Rap. I can do all,” She further added that she writes all her songs and performs the songs without getting any help from anyone.

“I write my songs and do not see the difficulty in doing that. All my life, music has been part of it, even during my childhood days. So, after completing my diploma, I decided to take it professionally and full-time,”

Trends Runway held in Tamale

The maiden edition of the Trends Runway show was held in Tamale at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium in November 2021. The night brought some delight to the city of Tamale. Generally, the organizers were impressed with the number of audiences who turned out for the program and the patience they exercise and stayed till the show was over.

One of the Accra-based designers, expressed his joy and delightfulness at seeing the audience still glued to their seats as late as 12 midnight when people would begin to leave at about 9 pm in Accra when the show has not ended. The atmosphere and reception of the people of Tamale were a new experience for him and this overwhelming. According to him, this was an indication that they were really welcomed in Tamale with their fashion.

The missing vibe in the organization’s structure was the conspicuous absence of women. In an interview with Abdul Raafi Mohammed on Sanatu Zambang Hotspot Live, the organizers bemoaned the difficulty of getting women involved in working with them but they hope to improve upon representation in the subsequent editions.

They also expressed some difficulties in training the models. They had to run shifts for the trainees because most of them were not regular and kept missing days in training. This made their work very difficult.

Talking of the sponsorship, the organizers admitted that, they had a tough time getting people and organizations to sponsor the program.  They reiterated that most cooperate bodies would ask for sponsorship letters but when the letters are given out to them, they would decline to grant any sponsorship.  

In organizing this fashion show, they noted that most of their sponsorships came from friends and family members, which was totally unacceptable and discouraging for the growth and success of the program.

One of the points that were also highlighted in the interview was the fact that designers are being limited by clients says Abdul Raafi. Fashion designers are not being challenged by clients to be creative and come out with their own designs. Clients come to seek services demanding replicas of dresses they see on the internet. But the panelist was of a different view. They said it was the duty of these fashion designers to educate their clients about the fashion business and the work they actually do.

DND Goes Hard on “Witchcraft” through Rap; with KAMULIMULISIGN aka the Night Flier

Published

on

Kamuili-Mulisign-By-DND-(-Prod.-by-Max-Roque)

DND of the Dope Guyz Empire comes again with another creative piece.

This time, the duo tackles a very sensitive topic.

The song is entitled KAMULIMULISIGN addresses some evil doings in our societies. The song emphasises the fact that hatred, jealousy and envy are the causes and sources of human suffering, and these bad deeds are the fertile ground for the activities of the rampant witchcraft and its adverse effects on humanity and society as a whole.

Many innocent lives have been lost, as well as destroying people with good minds for development. The song questions why witches are only and passionately interested in killing and destroying great people who have good intentions and the ability to bring development.

This song however can be seen as controversial, as it does not directly address witches, but rather an insect (specifically, a night flier).

However, since witches are said to be flying at night for their meetings and other activities, it is clear the witch here is metaphorically represented in the life and nature of a night flier (KAMULIMULISIGN).

Get yourself entertained by listening to this creative piece of work.
