7 Ways To Relate With People With Disabilities

1. Give a helping hand: Beckoning for help only comes up when a person is unable to do it individually. Maybe next time you might want to help a blind cross the road. By sole doing this, you have succeeded in impacting a life.

2. Respect them: Someone who has a disability should be afforded the same amount of respect as anyone else. View others as people, not impairments. Focus on the person at hand and her individual personality. If you must put a “label” on the disability, it’s best to ask what terminology she prefers and stick with the terms she chooses. In general, you should follow the “golden rule”: treat others as you would like to be treated

3. Speak directly to the person: It’s frustrating for someone with a disability to have to deal with people never talking directly to her if she has an assistant or a translator present. Equally, talk to a person in a wheelchair, rather than the person standing next to them. Their body may not be working fully, but it doesn’t mean their brains aren’t!

4. Don’t be afraid of asking about a person’s disability: It may not be appropriate to ask about someone’s disability out of curiosity, but if you feel this might help you make a situation easier for him or her, it is appropriate to ask questions.

5. Right of way: Always ensure to aid disabled persons to walk through the city without having to scamper for protection.

6. The message of Hope: Each time you come across a disabled, always remember to encourage them. Ginger them. Counsel them on the need never to lose hope but launch into the deep and be successful.

7. Offer genuine assistance: Some people are hesitant to offer to help someone with a disability for fear of offending her. Indeed, if you are offering help because of an assumption that someone cannot do something herself, your offer could be offensive. However, very few people would be offended by a genuine, specific offer of assistance.

Fashion And Music: Teflon Flexx Serves Us Both

Published

on

Music celebrities and designer collaborations have altered the course of fashion, though good examples of this relationship are few. The effects of these unions have been very significant. Outcomes include Jean Paul Gaultier’s whirlpool corset dress worn by Madonna on her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, which subsequently contributed to the trend for wearing bra tops and less clothing. Grace Jones’s collaborations with the art director Jean-Paul Goude, who in the 1980s rendered Grace Jones’s body a fashion object, made groundbreaking music videos and advertisements for various products. However, Grace Jones’s haircut became a major trend; it became known as a “high top” when copied by young black youth. Here in Ghana reigning Unsung Artiste of the year at the VGMA 2020 Teflon Flexx also known as the SOG is gracing our screens with his beautiful traditional apparel.

Teflon Flexx a Ghanaian-based Afrobeats artist, who hails from Sandema, Wiaga in the Upper East Region is gradually gaining his grounds in both the music and fashion space after starting music two years ago with his debut EP ‘Village Boy in the suit.’ He is distinguished from other northern artistes due to his strong fashion sense and style of music, which has earned him the name ‘Sound Of Greatnes’s (SOG).’ The relationship between fashion and popular music is one of abundant and mutual creativity. Reciprocal influences have resulted in some of the most dynamic apparel visualizations ever created in popular culture. The culture of dressing is inextricably tied down to a person’s identity and gives spiritual, intellectual, and emotional distinction from others.

Fashion and music have had and still have a tight relationship. As music is becoming more mainstream, it is inherent in Ghanaian/African artists not to drift from their cultural heritage but position themselves in a strategic position to synergize the Ghanaian fashion heritage in the way they dress. Ghanaian musicians just as their counterparts will continue to have such a close relationship with fashion, these two will not separate anytime soon.

What has always been missing in our Ghanaian music industry is the fair sense of musicians propagating their local cultural heritage forgetting it has tremendous rippling effects on all facets of the local economy of their Country. Kanye West, Drake, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, and several others have actualized the American fashion sense and today own popular brands that have influenced the world in their sense of fashion. Today, not only do they earn billions of dollars from endorsing popular brands, they have succeeded in corrupting the style of dressing of African/Ghanaian artistes.

There is beaming hopes of the upliftment of the Northern Ghanaian culture, kind courtesy of the fastest rising Ghanaian Musician Teflon Flexx with brand name STEW GANG who is obviously enthused with his culture. What makes him different from others is despite his rich international fashion sense associated with his brand, he equally slays in his fitting traditional outfits on most occasions. Teflon Flexx showcased the rich Northern culture at the just ended VGMA and also for winning the Unsung Award category, he was all glammed up in his recent music ‘Oluwa’ visuals. He has been on major platforms with trendy designs and looking dapper at events.

Teflon is equally a music gem whose hard work in the music studio spreads wide across the globe when dropped, he has served music lovers with bangin music projects like, ‘ No foreplay’, ‘ Eskebelebe’ which he featured DopeNation, ‘Madina’ featuring DJ Wobete.

The artiste and the music pride of the North is getting us deets on his forthcoming banger which features AMG Medikal, the title of the song has not been communicated yet but judging from the musical history of the dapper artist the speculation is, it is going to be a club banger.

We can’t wait for the hot tune coming from the leader of the stew gang.
