Posted On: 2017-03-31

Since the inception of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards eighteen (18) years ago, no Gospel musician has won the ultimate award before; and this has been the bane of Gospel musicians and their fans.

This International Women’s Day I want to celebrate the New faces of telecommunications’ players in Ghana – they are SMART, they are experiencing, and they are fierce. Above all, they are women making waves in this traditionally male-dominated sector.

Posted On: 2017-02-18

Vitamin D supplements could spare more than three million people from colds or flu in the UK each year, researchers claim.

The sunshine vitamin is vital for healthy bones, but also has a role in the immune system.

Posted On: 2017-01-12

The effect of constant stress on a deep-lying region of the brain explains the increased risk of heart attack, a study in The Lancet suggests.
