Scilla Owusu's 'City of Bukom'


Summary short_text

The movie is titled the City of Bukom and it chronicles the story of a young boxer in Bukom who overcomes depression to continue his father's legacy.
On how exciting or different the "City of Bukom" will be from any other project she has worked on, Scilla indicated that "I immersed myself into learning everything I could about Ghana's boxing history and I was excited to discover how this small town called Bukom had produced many of the world's greatest boxers and champions including notable fighters such as Richard Commey, David Kotei, Alfred Kotey and many others".
On the relevance of the movie, Scilla said "The story of Bukom is a rich historic one that remains untold, so our film aims to bring it to light and amplify it. Next to Bukom is Jamestown, where some of our scenes will be filmed. Jamestown and Bukom are densely populated areas where you find people living with sickle cell. Sickle Cell Disease is a group of disorders that affects hemoglobin, the molecule in red blood cells that delivers oxygen to cells throughout the body".

From archaeology to teaching, emceeing and stage acting: The story of Joseph Appah


Summary short_text

Speaking to Scribe News, the certified educator with over a decade teaching experience hinted, "I applied for BSc. Administration. My admission letter came in and and it read that I had missed University of Ghana Business School. I was given BA with the courses History, Study of Religions, Political Science and Classics. Classics was clashing with one other course so I went for a change and I was presented with Archaeology to replace it. Obviously, Archaeology wasn't a choice but it was what I majored in as my choice."
The headmaster of Start-Rite School at Dome emphasized, "Lessons in Arch 101 actually convinced me that Archaeology studies and research was multi-disciplinary ~ from the pure sciences to arts. That was the appeal. Early discussions revealed that Archaeology was research-intensive. It was highly analytical as students were taught how to analyze artefacts and ecofacts to tell stories of past cultures."
In 2009, Joseph Appah graduated with a BA in Archaeology and Political Science from University of Ghana.
