I am back in Accra at the moment to fulfil some of my duties as the face of Printex. It’s been a lot of fun but a lot of hard work too. I love representing the brand though, so the hard work is all totally worth it. The prints are bold, bright and beautiful and so they are a lot of fun to wear. I was on a photo shoot all day on Tuesday at a botanical gardens in the city. It felt like we were in the middle of the jungle with a lot of creepy crawly bugs! But the pictures looked amazing, so I’m looking forward to sharing them with you all soon. Here’s a couple of shot of me from behind the scenes though.
I have also been on a bit of a whirlwind media tour, doing TV, radio and print interviews. A few questions were directed to me about my relationship with Sulley and how we met. So I talked about how persistent he was when we first met, and about how he courted me for months and was the perfect gentlemen… until I caved in to his charm and his love for kids, especially my nieces and nephews. It really made me laugh when I read a fabricated story about how I used, or didn’t use, “JuJu” (black magic) on him.
The topic of “JuJu” never came up in any of my interviews, so I’m not sure where that even came from! But I have learnt not to let these kinds of made up stories distract me. After all, it comes with the territory!
What I found most interesting about the whole experience was that people actually still believe in things like black magic – INCREDIBLE! You can never control a human being or situation in that way. And besides God rules!
So on a more important note…I was back at my school yesterday to pay it one last visit before the new term starts. I met up with the wonderful headmaster there and we discussed plans for the new school year. The kids are all doing really well and I am so proud of them especially the ones who wrote the BECE exams (O levels). 80% of them passed the exams, which is really impressive! I pray and wish that this spirit and willingness to study continues because that encourages me to do more…
That’s all from me for now folks, but keep your eyes on my blog. I have a couple of exciting announcements coming your way soon!!
Ciao for now.
