Entertainment of Tuesday, 30 April 2013
Ghanaian actress and philanthropist Juliet Ibrahim, radio and TV presenter Caroline Sampson and fashion designer House of Adjeiwaah, are to be celebrated and honoured on Mother’s Day.
They are among selected hard working women in the entertainment industry to be honoured at a pre-Mother’s Day jam event dubbed: ‘DIVAS BALL’ scheduled for the Paloma Hotel (The Lexington Bar) on May 11.
The event, the brainchild of 18.com, events, public relations and advertising company in Ghana, will host musical performances from Kesse, D-Flex, Diojo and new hi-life sensation Akwaboah.
There will also be poetry performances from Ghana’s finest Rhyme Sonny and comedy from DKB, who represented Ghana at the last edition of the Big Brother Africa reality show.
Nana Yaw Wiredu, of 18.com said in a statement that, “we are hosting the jam not to only celebrate celebrity women who double as mothers but also those succeeding in show business.”
He added that, “we hope to use this platform to recognize their hard work and success in a male dominated entertainment industry as they combine that with their role as mothers.”
The listed celebrities will each receive a citation - signed by fans, friends and loved ones -, beauty treatment and hampers.
Nana Yaw Wiredu noted that, “It is our hope that fans and the DIVAS themselves will accept our effort in saying ‘Ayekoo’ [Thank you] to them on Mother’s Day and also for their achievements in the industry.”
