The biggest sports bet I have won is ₵20,000 – Kweku Flick

Published

on


In an interview with this reporter, the artiste indicated that he won the bet in a Champions League match in November 2021.

“₵20,000. It was a Champions League match in November 2021. I invested the money,” he revealed.

Last year, he revealed elsewhere that it was through sports betting he got money to record his first song as a musician.

Now promoting his current song, ‘Ewiase,’ Kweku Flick also revealed that the song is “off” his upcoming Extended Play (EP) dubbed ‘King of Melodies’.

According to the rapper, he has completed all the tracks on the EP and is set to release it.

However, he added that there will not be any collaborations on the EP. He indicated that his fans should expect collaborations on his next project, which could be an EP or an album.

“I’m yet to release my King of Melodies EP. ‘Ewiase’ is the number 5 track on the EP. Done with everything. No collaboration. Only Kweku Flick. Enjoy Kweku Flick before collaborations. I will collaborate with other artistes may be on the next EP or the next album.”

Asked when he will release the ‘King of Melodies’ EP, he said “maybe in May or April 29th.”

Kweku Flick, who started his music journey in 2019, had his break-through when he released ‘Money’ in 2020.

When this reporter asked him what his wildest dream is, he said he wants to be “everywhere.”

“I want the name, the sound, the brand, the face Kweku Flick to be everywhere. I want the kids to chase me. I want money to chase me and I want the big artistes to chase me.”

Although his career is relatively young, he has received several nominations from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) and the 3Music Awards.

In an interview on Hitz FM on Wednesday, April 13, Kweku gave “big shouts to VGMA for not nominating” him for any award this year, although he filed for nominations.

He pointed out that he is not disappointed by this.

The BKC Music signee noted that, he has decided to not say anything about him not getting a single nomination from the VGMA this year.

This is regardless of the fact that he filed for the ‘Hip-Hop Song of the Year and the ‘Hip-Hop Artiste of the Year’ categories, he said.

He further indicated that he submitted his songs ‘Attack,’ which featured Strongman and ‘No Sleeping’ featuring Kuami Eugene to the VGMAs.

However, he made it clear that he will not mince words if his work is jettisoned by the VGMA Board next year.

Women-owned businesses in Africa are faring better than expected with relatively high levels of resilience, according to a report

Published

on



The Lionesses Business Confidence Report illuminates how COVID-19 is affecting Africa’s leading women entrepreneurs and how their businesses are performing relative to their expectations.

According to the report, 59% of women entrepreneurs who participated in the survey indicated that the pandemic didn’t impact their businesses. In contrast, the report noted that a small minority (5%) said they expect a recovery to pre-COVID-19 levels in 2023 or beyond.

Another fascinating insight from the report showed that women entrepreneurs overwhelmingly reported using retained earnings, personal capital, and funds from family and friends to finance their business operations to weather the impact of COVID-19. This implied that they financed their companies’ activities through 2020 and into first-quarter 2021 largely by tapping internal sources of financing.

Commenting on the report, Dr. Beth Dunford, the Bank Vice President for Agriculture, Human and Social Development, said in the report’s foreword, “The Lionesses Business Confidence Report comes at an opportune time. The report gives voice through data to the extraordinary African women entrepreneur role models who serve as an inspiration to other African women business builders as they respond to the ongoing challenges resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.”

“The Lionesses Business Confidence Report provides a unique view of the African economy from the perspective of these leading women entrepreneurs,” said Lionesses of Africa Founder and CEO, Melanie Hawken. “The report illuminates how these women-led businesses performed through the height of the pandemic, their performance against expectations, and their current response to its ongoing impact. The report makes for insightful and encouraging reading,” she added.

The report concluded that women entrepreneurs regard digital transformation to be essential to their company, with 91% reporting it as “important” or “very important.” Based on the survey, two-thirds (68%) have confidence in their companies’ current digital capabilities. However, the majority (88%) report plans to increase spending on digital technology.

Published

on



The book, which was co-written with the prolific Fiifi Anaman, captures the life story of the late Gyamfi, who passed away in 2015.

During the auction of the book, the first copy was bought by politician Kwabena Osei-Bonsu for a whopping GHc20,000.

The second copy was also purchased by Kwaku Ofori, with three other anonymous persons donating a sum of GHc5,000 each.

The launch was attended by several ex-footballers, including Anthony Baffoe, George Alhassan, Hesse Odamtten, Sampson Lamptey and Abdul Razak.

Meanwhile, all of CK Gyamfi’s sons were also present, as the autobiography of the ex-footballer and coach was launched.

Gyamfi remains one of the most decorated sporting icons from Ghana, having achieved a lot on and off the field.

He was the first African to play in Germany after joining Fortuna Dusseldorf. He also lined up for both Hearts of Oak and Germany during his playing career.

The late Gyamfi also led Ghana to their first-ever Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title and remains one of the just two managers to have won the AFCON three times.

Meanwhile, the net proceeds from the legendary sportsman’s book auction will go into the CK Gyamfi Foundation.

According to his son, Edwin Gyamfi, the money will then be used to support grassroots football in the country.
