A Creative Spark

Our good friend Donald joins Kess and our guest Kafui in this interesting episode. We discuss the recent kidnappings in Ghana, and the good news of the girls being found. We also talk about the lack of support and encouragement of innovation in our schools and society as a whole. Is it a systemic problem, or our attitude to things?

Kafui gives us a glimpse into his life as a creative director. We talk creative arts in Ghana and how easy it is as creatives/artists to make themselves known in the industry. We also discuss the differences between the sexes as creatives, societal expectations and acceptance.

We made it to season 3! Kess is joined by Thandie in this first episode. Get to know us a little better by learning our favorite foods, pet peeves, worst home chores, and many more. Also, Thandie let’s her inner Cardi loose.

For What’s Poppin, we discuss R Kelly’s ‘emotional breakdown’ on the interview with Gayle King, International Women’s Day and the whole Tristan-Khloe-Jordyn cheating saga, which leads us into The Sizzler.

We breakdown the whole saga and try to figure out what exactly girl code is, and if it really exists. Is it acceptable for a friend or sibling to date your ex? Find out what we think is and isn’t acceptable in such situations.
