The World Health Innovation Summit (WHIS)-Nigeria has unveiled Liberia -born Ghanaian actor, Eddie Samuel Watson Jr, as its new brand ambassador.
The actor has been enjoying a successful acting career in Nigeria.
“Eddie’s wealth of experience in education, health and well-being through different humanitarian channels to improve lives is a boost to WHIS programme globally,” WHIS Nigeria Lead and CEO, Foluke Michael, stated on the organisation’s website.
The World Health Innovation Summit is a platform that empowers people and communities to improve their health and well-being while generating value and sharing it.
It has partnered with United Nations Global Sustainability Index to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals in 30 cities worldwide by 2025.
The WHIS has different ambassadors around the world. Eddie is the latest to join the community.
Eddie believes that Africa is going to be a significant part in shaping the future of the world and the youths of Africa are the hope that future. He’s passionate about the rights of the child and of the rights women.
He has engaged in many humanitarian efforts with orphanages and NGOs, including New Life Orphanage Ghana, Good Shepherd Orphanage Ghana and USAID Ghana.
His documentary film, ‘Ebola’, was one of his humanitarian efforts after the Ebola outbreak hit West Africa in 2014.
It was a very sad moment for the actor as his homeland was one of the countries hit by the deadly virus.
The film was meant to educate people in areas affected by the disease.
The film was totally financed by Eddie Watson himself and was distributed to most media houses in countries affected plus others in the region of publication and also on the internet without a single charge from the actor.
He launched the ‘We Need Help-Ebola’ campaign the same year the film was shot with the Twitter hashtag #WeNeedHelpEbola.
Later that year, the film went on to win Best Short Film at the Ghana Movie Awards (GMA). He also won other influential awards in his career.

Finally RiGG 13 Set To Release “Give and Take” Featuring King Xzibit
Over the years, the Ghanaian Music industry has seen an influx of Musicians with a low sense of direction which from my point of view is the cause of the poor sound we are now dealing with as an industry. Obviously, alot of upcoming acts are stuck in a loop of recycling. Monitoring RiGG 13 for the past 3 years, I can confidently say he is part of the few upcoming artists who seems to know where he is going with his sound.
From his First official single; “Edey Your There” through to “Fa Ma Me“, Rigg 13 has proven himself an icing on the cake in the industry.
Today, he teams up with Talented Ghanaian promising Singer; King Xzibit. who won the Central Music Awards Upcoming Artist of the Year and Best Highlife song of the Year 2014/2015 respectively on a new Joint he tittles; “Give and Take”.
On this masterpiece, King Xzibit serves chorus in his usual chilly tone as RiGG 13 serves 2 dope rap verses with the difference we’ve come to accept him for On a beat he self produced. A street tune everyone will love. Apparantly, he is releasing this hot jam to pave way for his upcoming EP; “Made In Absentia (M.I.A)” which will be officially released in November. Enjoy “Give and Take” when it drops this weekend and relax for the EP; Made In Absentia (M.I.A)”.

Tamale To Host Azali Movie Premiere
Some of the crème de la crème of the film industry are expected to be in Tamale on October 12 for the major premiere of the new award-winning Ghanaian film, ‘Azali’.
The premiere ceremony will come off at the Radach Hotel in Tamale.
It will be preceded by the film’s cast embarking on a media tour in the area.
Among the cast expected to be in Tamale are Asana Alhasan, Akofa Edjeani, Adjetey Anang, Mohammed Halfiz, Ama K. Abebrese, Strika, among others.
‘Azali’ has been receiving good reviews for its interesting story lines and quality since the beginning of 2018.
It is also expected to also make some film festivals later this year and next year.
It is a film about 14-year-old Amina from northern Ghana, who is thrust into the slums of Accra by circumstances and must find a way to get back home. Amina has her life going well until her mother makes a decision that changes all that. Faced with a choice of perceived hopelessness, marrying Amina to a much older man or sending her off to work in Burkina Faso, she chooses the latter. But unknown to her, the man is part of a child smuggling syndicate.
Amina, together with the other victims, are rescued and sent to an orphanage for resettlement to their various homes, but by some cruel twist of fate, Amina follows some child veterans of the home to Accra in search of a better life. What happens at the end is what film enthusiasts will see for themselves on October 12 and 13 at the Radach Hotel in Tamale.
Azali’ is produced by Ananse Entertainment and directed by Kwabena Gyansah. It is expected to make a huge impact in Tamale.
