When I think about the past few months, standing out from the Bible is a passage which perfectly describes what has been a season where I have been an at times unwitting passenger on a rollercoaster of emotions. Ecclesiastes 3:11 starts off by saying 'He hath made everything beautiful in His time...' I can categorically say that God has indeed been good, extremely good; and He's been faithful, and He's been working according to His time and not mine...
It's so good to be back on the screen! Time flies! It's been more than ten years since the last time The Dentaa Show debuted on the nation's TVs. And so much has changed in that time, so much has been achieved. However, I felt the time was right to return to the small screen. Last week it was my pleasure to unleash my brand new project, 'The Dentaa Show' - a syndicated magazine programme which focuses on coverage of entertainment events, interviews with celebrities and new music videos. It premiered to universal acclaim on Sunday 5th March 2017 as…
The past few weeks have seen a wind of fresh change sweep across the Ghanaian political landscape, and the winds of change do not seem to be slowing down. I have had the pleasure and privilege of meeting the British High Commissioner Designate to Ghana Iain Walker who will be replacing the incredible incumbent High Commissioner H.E.

Not only would Barrow's election be a notable change because it involved the usurping of a seemingly immoveable object, but it will be significant because Barrow used to work as a security guard in Argos on the Holloway Road in North London. What seemed inconceiveable became reality. The joke had the last laugh. Just days later, we find ourselves…

My MBE: a wait and then a weight

Saturday, 05 November 2016
'My friends don't believe me when I say that we are going to see the Queen'. The words of the my eldest son. As my appointment date at the Palace drew ever closer, my home has been a melting pot of emotions and feelings. Tension. Pressure. Excitement. Joy. These emotions have been magnified in the hearts of my children, all three buzzing about their business in eager anticipation of Thursday, 27 October 2016.
