Accra's International Marathon | Winners & Observers

The world-renowned Accra International Marathon happened the end of last month (Saturday September 29th, to be precise) and my co-host Double A and I got to interview the founder and organizer Ekua Bannerman-Richter of the annual Accra International Marathon on our MPwr radio show.
I participated in ETV/Japan Motors corporate run days earlier, so I opted to  support friends and loved-ones who participated in this marathon, and yes, get a few pictures of what ensued. Everyone who participated, from corporate teams, individual runners in the women & youth sections, was a winner. Shout out to Ekua Bannerman-Richter & her team for a superb job well done, with participants coming from across the world to participate. More pictures here: AIM pictures

They call (him) Burna Boy!

It has been an uber busy past few weeks. There have been events that I wanted to blog about, which I still will...posts that I need to catch you all up very soon. From the growth of the Mpwr Show, to Team 1000 words and the wonderful new and engaging website and attending proactive events such as the Accra International Marathon ....well and to random moments of bliss such as this... there is so much to share. Be prepared for a blitz of posts soon.

Burna Boy, for those who aren't on his music yet (check out: Burna Boy official site), we feature his music weekly on our PWR Mix segment of the radio show, came by Y FM's studio fresh from Nigeria for an interview. I had one of my cameras in the back of the trunk, whipped it out to get some celeb pictures in. I'm a fan for good afro fusion music and when it has reggae and jazzy nuances that pleasantly surprise, sign me up!
