"A woman is good for having babies and to be spent money on" is what a young guy once told me. I thought it was one of the most ridiculous shizz i had ever heard. Is that the mentality of our generation now? I am more than that. Have been raised by women who are waaay more than that. There are women who juggle between being mothers, good wives, friends and make a living and a career. Some even take care of kids next to their own. This is What i call a Shero. A female hero to her man, family, friends ànd they have come a long way because of her. A good lady/woman, period! Young or old, there are a lot of women who can call themselves a #SHERO. That’s one of the moments that inspired me to write this song. Share those that inspire you and are truly good women. Coming couple of weeks, I’m posting pics of women who I know can be called a #SHERO u in? @afrijumba @xeasx @cosmosandlipstick @charleneaustin @lenry_aus @s.maria__ tagging more @frandjescka @yl.eagle #hardworking #bestfriends #loyalwomen #saynotothisdayrottenmentality #learnfromthegood #learnfromgoodwomen #committed #trustworthy #loyalty #song #firstsingle #africanartist #AFROLIFE #ghanaian #artist

"I will not accept an inferior position in the art world. Nor have my art called African because I have not correctly and properly given expression to my reality.
I have consistently fought against that kind of philosophy because it is bogus. European artists like Picasso, Braque and Vlaminck were influenced by African art. Everybody sees that and is not opposed to it. But when they see African artists who are influenced by their European training and technique, they expect that African to stick to their traditional forms even if he bends down to copying them.
I do not copy traditional art. I like what I see in the works of people like Giacometti but I do not copy them. I knew Giacometti personally in England, you know. I knew he was influenced by African sculptures. But I would not be influenced by Giacometti, because he was influenced by my ancestors.”
