“Ghana will celebrate its 65th year since it FOUGHT and gained its independence. I wanna go back in a big group in July. I promise you’ll feel at home,” Chance The Rapper wrote.

The announcement was accompanied by a video compilation the rapper seemed to have done during his time here.

Some things captured in the video include his travels, hikes, interaction with some locals, the Black Star Square and others.

He also revealed that his family has built a school in Jamestown.

Also, he linked up with many musicians including Darkovibes, Sarkodie, King Promise and M.anifest.

I’ve ever googled sex positions



Singer Akwaboah at Hitz FM studio

A ‘never have I ever’ segment of Adom TV‘s entertaining weekend show, Ahosepe Xtra got musician Akwaboah revealing some deep secrets about himself.

Among the things he revealed that got him thinking hard was his confession of searching up pornographic content including sex positions.

Rather than the sexual gratification people find on such sites, Akwaboah said he ‘googled’ basically for educative purposes.

He told host Black I that such incidents happened when he was relatively younger, and at a time when peer pressure was unavoidable.

“I heard stories and names but I didn’t know what it was or how it looked like so obviously, I wanted to learn more”.

Akwaboah claimed it was not to equip himself with the skills when he decides to practice but to feed his curiosity and have stories to share when ‘boys boys’ brought up such conversations.

He, however, revealed he had a favourite from the different positions he learned, a favorite he failed to make mention on the show.

The I Do Love You composer also indicated during the interview that he has a crush on a Ghanaian celebrity.

He said when he began developing affection for the actress whose name he failed to give, it was her smile that intrigued him.

Akwaboah disclosed he has met his on-screen crush once but, surprisingly, did not behave out of character.

Coming from a family blessed with music, Akwaboah remarked that he would have no problem mentoring his son to follow his steps.

Despite following his father on tours at a tender age of 10, the father-of-one said he will only give a nod to his 8-year-old son after he attains a certain educational height.

James Bond producers say Idris Elba may be next 007

The producers of James Bond have said British actor Idris Elba is “part of the conversation” to be the next 007.

Barbara Broccoli, with her brother Michael G Wilson, have produced the last nine Bond films including Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.

One of the most sought after and iconic roles in cinema is now back up grabs following Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007 in the most recent Bond movie No Time To Die.

Elba, who stars in the crime drama Luther, is often tipped as one of the leading candidates to take over.

The 49-year-old has appeared in several Hollywood movies including Concrete Cowboy, Pacific Rim and Thor: Ragnarok.

Speaking to Deadline’s Crew Call podcast, Broccoli addressed the speculation over who will next play Bond after she was told “a lot of fans want to see Idris Elba in a tuxedo”.

Broccoli, 61, said: “Well, we know Idris, we’re friends with him, and he’s a magnificent actor.

“And, you know, it’s been part of the conversation, but it’s always difficult to have the conversation when you have someone in the seat.

“I think we have decided that until No Time To Die has had its run and Daniel has been able to – well, we’ve all been able to savour, reap the benefits of Daniel’s wonderful tenure, we’re not gonna think about, or talk about anybody else, actors to play the role or storylines, we just want to live in the moment.”

If Elba lands the part he will become the seventh actor to play Bond as part of the franchise – following in the footsteps of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.

Other actors tipped to be the next Bond include Tom Hardy, Richard Madden, and Henry Cavill.

Craig, 53, is seen by some as one of the best Bonds ever.

Talking about his departure, Wilson, 80, told the podcast: “It’s very hard to see him go, he’s a tough act to follow, as they say.

“I think we will have a challenge in trying to continue on but we have set the bar high and I think it is a challenge we will have to face.”
