Kookoo aduro - traditional, herbal medicine and curing AIDS

...Sounds on da ground and seens on the see-ins

My first reaction was to laugh it off. Ghanaweb is at it again, sensationalising another headline. But as I continued to read, it sounded more 'authentic'. Besides, I have strong beliefs in traditional medicine and KNUST was ever present in this scenario. We have heard all the facts about HIV-AIDS but with the recent pronouncement from Gambia about a cure/treatment and now with this revelation from Kumasi (Ghana), should we paying some more attention and giving more credit to traditional medicine? 4x4's Kookoo Aduro is a tribute to our herbalists and medicine men.

Jama - Osee, osee, Black Stars ei, forward ever!

...Sounds on da ground and seens on the see-ins

I have been wanting to blog about Ghana's World Cup participation ever since October 8, 2005, when Ghana qualified. Now that we've been to the tournament and are still riding strong, the time is right. The Black Stars have shown some gallant displays, especially after a terrible African Nations' Cup campaign. They fought against the Italians and fell short, completely gave the Czechs (and the rest of the world) a reality check and outlasted the USA. Appropriately, Ghana has thrown its weight behind its Black Stars and have been celebrating this piece of history. Ghana hasn't just been celebrating, it has done its part in motivating the 'boys' to be successful. The government has contributed its quota, private industry has sponsored the preparations, the citizenry has offered support and prayers and the musicians have helped us all cheer them on. Just like the good old days when we cheered on our secondary school teams with resounding 'jama', Ghanaians now have songs to sing at the World Cup too. 4x4's 'Jama' is just one of them.
