Whip my hair- New Begining

I really want to have a haircut, with my changing jobs and all, I think it’s a new beginning for me or something else I can’t explain.

My grandfather says I shouldn’t because am young and won’t have any hair if I grow up, but I know he is scared cos my grandma (his wife) has no hair left, well not because she cut it when she was young, she has never had any.

I once grew my hair to have dreadlocks and my mum wouldn’t hear of it, so I permed it, but now I really wanna cut.

My mum has really nice short hair with streaks sometimes purple or grey and I love it.

I tried to have Lydia show me where she got hers, only to know that she does it herself and a few times goes to the salon. Like I told her if she ever wanna quit acting, she could try barbering.

I went net surfing and had a few ideas, I probably would get it at Exotic trends but how do I know what would suit me?

Help moi decide!!!

Miss Ghana: New or still old?

I wanted to take part in Miss Ghana this year but I was disqualified even before I had the chance to audition, so am hitting the gym, even though I haven’t started ,because the gym instructor keeps on inviting me to dinner, I feel like he is going to over touch my body during exercise.:)

I got home early enough to catch Miss Ghana Kumasi Auditions yesterday, again watching with my Grandpa who was constantly asking about his pizza.

Pa na pa na(read it like a song) wow, I love the new layout and picture quality , hmm Miss Ghana seems good. I noticed a few changes, well apart from the layout and picture quality. Phamous people got MWK covered, I love the montage and the scary looking guy: It works!

It has a new presenter, DEBBIE.

I saw her at the Malaika launch cohosting with Naa Ashorkor, it’s a good idea she went for Miss Ghana because it’s no good trying to out shine your selves, look at the presenters for project fame, the lady always under shines.

I think she’s pretty and eloquent but seems very careful. Well we would not know if she ever makes a mistake because it is recorded and edited but she seems extra careful with her words, madam Debbie, work it, I think you can do it, not that my opinion matters:)

The judges: Nicola, Habiba and Lydia.

I love Nicola, she’s got the most interesting facial expressions, I like her judging. Doesn’t talk much, she looks very keen like she sees something more interesting in the girls than the other judges, even if she’s not saying anything she looks clever :), At a point I though she seemed “bored” with the other judges.

Habiba, she seems cool and i think she can’t speak twi, ( she didn’t get the twi joke) however she seemed a little lost to me in the course of the audition.

Lydia the bubbling judge, she got what she wanted: FUN, she was shown how to dance “Azonto,pe pe pe pe” ( I hate that dance). She had quite a happy day, laughing at everything the girls said. Sarcastically laughing at that girl’s joke made me feel sad for her, Lydia made me feel like I was watching an acting audition.

Nicola’s fine but don’t know if Habiba and Lydia were right judges for the audition: naaaaaa, don’t think so.

The girls: what is wrong with them? This is Miss Ghana for god’s sake, the most prestigious crown in the country. They appeared like they were joking. Look at that Azonto girl? Where is she going to do that, Miss World?

I really don’t understand why or how you would go for an audition unprepared. A few seemed appropriate and I guess they got selected.

I saw a popular model in there *wink* but am not talking.

Am still watching …………………..and I know it would get better, and it’s a NEW great look for Miss Ghana, MWK nice try!

I wanted to add something else , but don’t remember, if you remember please do add. Mwuah!

Malaika: Blame them or us?

Last Sunday was probably my second time of watching Miss Malaika on Gtv. My grandpa frowned the whole time through the show as when he saw the ladies made up and in fashionable clothes, there’s something I don’t understand about that man: he does not like any ladies clothing except long sleeves and maxi skirts. You should have seen him, puckering his mouth and continuously asking me in Akuapem Twi:” wo si den”? (what are they saying) as if he doesn’t understand English.
I didn’t catch the beginning but I think I didn’t lose much. I like Naa Ashiorkor’s and the contestants make up, good! I was amused by the names of their teams. I started watching from the quiz, entertainment to be precise.
I was damn shocked, the girls didn’t know the names of most of the Ghanaian musicians. I could not believe it. Not even Mac Tontoh who died recently and was more popular than ever, for god’s sake girls!
They seem to know the names of the entire foreign artiste ranging from Halle Berry, Alicia Keys and Jay Z’s song and others. Naa Ashorkor seems to have been disappointed, but, can you blame them?
When Akosua Agyapong’s song was played it seemed to them like wow? Who is this?
I kinna found it amazing, but really who is to blame; I mean we barely hear a lot of Ghanaian songs on radio these days unless it’s hip life.
Well, all I think is that we all must educate ourselves in whatever subject; I thought it would have been pretty shameful if a foreigner was watching that show especially one who studies African studies at Legon and walks almost barefoot……..those ones are sharks.
Wat ya think?
