Dede Ayew Wins Highest Award At 2022 Calcio Trade Ball

Published

on

It was a night of absolute bliss, glamour and class at the 4th edition of the Calcio Trade Ball event organised by the football talent agency group ArthurLegacy.

This year’s event was held at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra and it brought together some of the continent’s biggest names in football, government officials and the diplomatic and corporate communities.

This year’s event underscored the unique partnership between the ArthurLegacy brand and the Italian Embassy in Accra and how both parties have over the years worked to ensure seamless facilitation of special Ghana-Italy trade ties using football as a tool.

Speaking at this year’s event, the Italian Ambassador to Ghana, HE. Daniela d Orlandi said Italy’s place in Ghanaian football history was one that was truly inspiring and it had laid a foundation that kept yielding fruits.

The Italian government, she added, found in ArthurLegacy a strategic partner that had over the years executed this flawlessly and looked forward to more of such.

She went on to say that trade relations between Italy and Ghana had been enhanced by the works of entities such as ArthurLegacy and strongly recommended that others from the diplomatic community would follow suit.

A longtime associate of ArthurLegacy, Madam Ama Bawuah, called on the corporate community to open its doors to the brand, suggesting the football economy was one every country needed to complement its growth.

“The opportunities football offers are endless. I have experienced it at first hand and I know that if we all come together to support the ArthurLegacy brand, we will be driving the needed economic growth we want to see.”

Founder of ArthurLegacy, Oliver Arthur said his organisation would continue to invest in the game to give opportunities to young talents.

“What we have achieved and celebrated could not have been achieved without the support of almost everyone present in this room. Ours is not an easy task but it is one that we gladly perform. We will continue to pursue opportunities for the next generation of footballers as we transform lives.”

General Manager of ArthurLegacy, Kathleen Arthur, reiterated the successes of the brand and how it carried with it the dreams of many families.

“What we do at ArthurLegacy is more than just football scouting, training, management and transfers. We carry the dreams of hundreds of people using the sport as a powerful life-changing tool for the players and the communities and families they come from. We have been consistent at it, and we intend to go the full haul.

Because of what we do and do so well, the lives of these players and their families are shaped in many unimaginable ways and for us, that is the bigger satisfaction we get.
In the next ten years, we want to still help make the dreams and aspirations of these footballers come to pass. We want to be the reason why some of these players never gave up in life. Ghana has a large pool of talents and ArthurLegacy is going to be ever-present in that ecosystem.”

This year’s Calcio Trade Ball (CTB) saw Black Stars captain Andre Dede Ayew win the topmost award CTB Order of the Star. Andre commended ArthurLegacy and the Italian Embassy for the initiative, calling on others to help provide the avenue for more football talents from Ghana.

Published

on

Madonna shared a passionate kiss with rapper Tokischa on stage in New York City.

Madonna, 63, was joined by Tokischa, 26, for a performance of her hit “Hung Up”.

It was a pretty sensual performance throughout, with some sexy choreography.

At the end of their performance, the pair engaged in a rather intense kiss, before Madonna slapped Tokischa’s bum as she walked off the stage.

Madonna is no stranger to kissing on stage. She kissed Britney Spears at the 2003 VMAs and reenacted the kiss at Britney’s wedding to Sam Asghari this month.

Watch the video below.

Here Are All The Performers & Presenters For The 2022 BET Awards

Published

on

Lil Wayne will perform on the 2022 BET Awards, the network announced Thursday (June 23). Lil Wayne is an 11-time winner at the BET Awards, including five awards in the viewer’s choice category. He is also a five-time Grammy winner.

The show, hosted by Taraji P. Henson for the second year in a row, will air live on BET on Sunday, June 26, at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Sean “Diddy” Combs is this year’s lifetime achievement award recipient. Combs will take the stage for a star-studded tribute performance, which will feature Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Nas, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, The Lox, Bryson Tiller, Faith Evans and The Maverick City Choir. The performance will be a retrospective of Diddy’s musical legacy as a producer and artist.

Several of this year’s performers have won BET Awards in recent years, including Lizzo, who won best female R&B/pop artist two years ago; Givēon, who won best new artist last year; Roddy Ricch, who won best new artist and album of the year two years ago; Chance the Rapper, who won best new artist five years ago; and Kirk Franklin, who is a five-time winner (including the last two years) for best gospel/inspirational artist.

This will be the third year in a row that Ricch has performed on the show; the second year in a row that Franklin has performed.

Chlöe, a three-time nominee this year, is also set to perform. Other performers include LattoJack HarlowBabyfaceDoechiiElla MaiFireboy DMLJoey Bada$$Maverick City Music, and Muni Long.

In addition to performing on the show, Harlow is a nominee for best male hip-hop artist. Lil Nas X, Harlow’s partner on the smash hit “Industry Baby,” wasn’t nominated in that category (or any other). LNX loudly protested the snub, which many observers with no self-interest also found hard to understand.

Up-and-coming artists GoGo Marrow and OGI will perform on the BET Amplified Stage. Last year, Tone Stith and Mereba performed on that stage, which BET sees as a launching pad.

Idris Elba, a two-time BET winner for best actor, will serve as a presenter. So will Daniel Kaluuya, who won an Oscar for best supporting actor two years ago for playing Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.

MC Lyte returns as the ceremony’s announcer. DJ Diamond Kuts returns as the house DJ.

BET will kick off the celebration with BET Awards ’22: Red Carpet Live! on Sunday starting at 6 p.m. ET/PT. Hosted by Terrence J, the pre-show will include performances by Capella Grey, Fast Life Yungstaz, Juvenile, Pheelz, Saucy Santana, and Victoria Monet. The pre-show will feature red carpet correspondent Pretty Vee, DJ Jae Murphy, and more. Affion Crockett will host the BET Awards red carpet Twitter live stream show.

Of the 14 artists who received three or more BET Awards nominations this year, Chlöe is the only one who has been announced as a performer.

Doja Cat is this year’s top nominee with six nods. Doja is this year’s only artist, male or female, to be nominated in both R&B/pop and hip-hop categories, a sign of her broad-based appeal. Ari Lennox and Drake are runners-up, with four nods each.

Baby KeemSilk Sonic, Chlöe, FutureH.E.R.Jazmine SullivanYe (formerly Kanye West), Kendrick LamarLil BabyMary J. Blige and Tems each received three nominations.

The BET Awards is among the most-watched awards shows on cable television. BET calls the awards, now in their 22nd year, “the ultimate platform to showcase the best, brightest, and most beautiful aspects of the Black experience – celebrating Black music’s present and future, and elevating the culture and being a driving force for social change.”

Connie Orlando, BET’s executive vice president, specials, music programming, music strategy, and news will oversee the annual show, along with Jamal Noisette, VP, specials, music programming & music strategy, who will serve as co-executive producer for BET.
