Former Miss Malaika Ghana, model and entrepreneur, Hamamat Montia, has shared what kept her going after her divorce, her twin girls.
“You know when things did not go as planned, it was painful, it hurt but I had to be strong. I looked around to find what could keep me going then one day, I heard my daughters say to each other that they wanted to be like me when they grew up and that was the wake up call for me, that I had to pick up the pieces and move on”.
“If not for anything at all, I want to be that great woman, that strong mommy they can look up to. I was expected to look someway because my partner had moved on way earlier than I expected but no, I didn’t, I stood my grounds and today, I am here, I just want to give my children a reason to be happy,” she said in an interview with Showbiz.
The now “Shea butter ambassador” also mentioned that she believed her marriage not working was a fault from both she and her ex.
“I would blame myself too because it takes two people to make it work but if I am not in a happy place, I will not stay there because of my children, no, I need to leave to be strong and hold them down when the need arises.
“I know there are lots of women who are in marriages that are causing them pain but are staying with the excuse that they want the best for their children but no, you cannot hold your children down when you kick the bucket, when you are devastated etc,” she said.
The model also touched on her skin and how it inspired her to go into the shea butter business.
“My experience has taught me that as Africans, we need to accept and celebrate our skin and take care of it and this birthed my shea butter business.
“I have come to realise that shea butter has a lot of benefits so instead of using all those creams with chemicals in it, use shea butter, it has a lot of benefits”, she added.
Hamamat also had a few words to say to people who are about to get married, she mentioned that happiness is key.
To those who are about to get married, she had these words, “Happiness is key and remember that whatever the turnout of events are, you have a role to play. Take your time and make sure you truly know the person” , the model added.
Hamamat Montia is the author of “Zuzu and Sasa”, a book inspired by her twins, a model and an entrepreneur. She is currently promoting her new business venture, a village spa, called Hamamat African Village.

Kwesi Arthur Has My Style : Lazee
Swedish born Ghanaian artiste and Chief Executive Officer of Timeless music, Mawuli Kwabla Morton Kulego known in the music space as Lazee has praised young Ghanaian BET nominee Kwesi Arthur’s style of music as unique.
According to the Swedish Grammy nominee, he will choose Kwesi Arthur over any artiste in Ghana because “I think our two styles would fit together. I’m a big fan of his music.” He said.
In an interview with the artiste who is based in Sweden, his plan in the music industry is to inspire, motivate the youth to be themselves and be better. Lazee whose father was a DJ, grew up influenced by music. He chose to do rap because; he said: “I felt that was my attitude at the time and something I could relate to.”
Sharing his experience as a black guy doing urban music in a white-dominated country he said, “Doing urban music in a white-dominated country isn’t easy but, I had no choice but to believe in myself because no one else could see my vision. It hasn’t been smooth, it’s all self-motivation.”
He has worked with Raekwon (Wu-Tang), Sean Kingston, Krayzie Bone (Bone Thugs N) Harmony, Swedish House Mafia, Prince of 4×4 and has over 500 tracks.
Lazee said “I look up to artists that’s accomplished what I trying to do. Everyone from Jay-Z, Drake, Diddy are all big inspirations for me.”
His latest song ‘Flex’ was inspired by his trip to Ghana. “It’s my first time singing in my native language which is Ga and English. So I hope the people like it.”
Mawule Kulego also known artist/songwriters/songwriter from Sweden. In 2006, Lazee released his first mixtape, ‘It Is What It Is’, a collaboration with hip hop legend DJ Kay Slay (NYC). With influences from Rap, RnB, and Reggae, Lazee found a way to combine that with all the 90\s rock pop music he grew up listening to in Europe.
He quickly found his strength in writing and composing a sound that’s familiar but new. Lazee’s first single ‘Rock Away’ was an instant hit and entered the charts in the spring of 2008, before it’s even officially released. It ended up in the top 10, and rotated frequently on all major Scandinavian radio stations and Swedish MTV.
After that, his first album ‘Setting Standards’, was released. Sharing the stage with acts such as Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, Ne-Yo, Wyclef Jean, 50 Cent and being adviced by the legendary Quincy Jones, Lazee has proved not only to be a great performer but also a great entertainer. After studying Performing Arts at UCLA, Lazee focused more on his songwriting and has since worked with both seasoned and new producers. With his latest release with Warner Music/ Parlophone signed artist and world producer Ishi, Lazee is well on his way to becoming a well-known writer and a top liner.
