World celebrated South African trumpeter, Hugh Masekela, has arrived in Ghana to watch Roverman Productions’ play, ‘Women on Fire’.

The award winning musician touched down Friday night ahead of the play’s showing at the National Theatre on Sunday.

Roverman Productions sources tell the trip to Ghana by the South Africa music great will also be used to further ongoing discussions on a theatre project that will see the company tour some African countries.

‘Women on Fire’

Renowned playwright James Ebo Whyte’s ‘Women on Fire’ is a masterpiece that transported his loyal and growing audience to the market square unveiling typical market gossip, traditional misconceptions and controlling unruly political bigotry in a dramatic and hilarious fashion.

Women on Fire captures the different sides of a Ghanaian laced with unparalleled comedy and captures the diverse social backgrounds of women in the society.

Sika, contrary to expectation, after her master’s degree decides to sell at the market. Equipped with much needed knowledge, she implements what she learnt in school and thus sees her business flourish.

As it pertains in a not too strange Ghanaian setting, her colleagues become envious of her success and start plotting against her.

With the help of Mayor Johnson, her ex-husband, Sika’s world comes crushing but will that be the end for her?

The highpoint of this exciting production is a widow expressing joy at the death of her husband, citing his womanizing as the reason for her excitement. Strangely, this woman discloses that when she was left in the room to bid her departed husband farewell, she rained insults on his lifeless body.

Women on Fire plays at the National Theatre on Sunday, February 1, 2015 4pm and 8pm.

10 most powerful women in Ghana today



Power comes with great responsibility and with a country like Ghana, this forms of responsibility is most unique and special especially when you are a woman.

With a new government in place and also the change in political power and other developments in the nation, we bring you the top ten all powerful women in Ghana today.

1. Sophia Akufo

Being the second female chief justice in Ghana, Madam Akufo comes up as the most powerful woman and legal brain in Ghana today as she heads the Supreme Court of Ghana thus ensuring that justice is respected in the country.

2. Charlotte Osei 

She was one of the most powerful women in Ghana on YEN’s list in 2016 and still is! Madam Charlotte Osei, being the electoral commissioner has overseen one of Ghana’s knife-edged elections which saw Nana Addo Danquah-Akufo-Addo emerge as president of the 4th republic.

3. Rebecca Akufo-Addo

There’s no mention of Ghana’s powerful women without mentioning the name of the first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo. She indeed is the power behind the strength of president Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo.

4. Samira Bawumia 

Forget the fact that she is the second lady in Ghana as her vicarious campaign messages one way or the other saw the NPP got elected into power. Samira Bawumia knows Ghanaians best and reaches out to them with words.

5. Gloria Akufo 

Being the attorney general and legal adviser to the president, Madam Gloria Akufo comes along as the best legal brain which prosecutes and processes major cases against government and the state. Without her, Ghana would be ripped by several legal battles. She has power, real power.

6. Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey 

You can’t mention powerful women in Ghana without mentioning the name of the foreign affairs minister. This special minister is the representative of government the world over who makes sure that the foreign policy of Ghana is strictly adhered to.

7. Adwoa Sarfo 

Graced with beauty in such a rigorous political atmosphere as Ghana, 35 year-old Adjoa Sarfo is definitely one of the most powerful women in Ghana today considering the fact that she is the only female deputy majority leader in Ghana’s political history.

8. Akumaa Mama Zimbi 

You might wonder why we included the name of the sex goddess in Ghana but indeed most of Ghana’s youthful population will never survive with he sexual therapy of this media goddess. With her ‘Odo Ahomaso’ show which attracts millions of viewers countrywide, there is no doubt in our mind that she is an authority in her own right.

9. Barbara Mahama 

Ghana came to a standstill when the mob of Major Mahama was announced. Though we still share in the pain of his killing, one person who stood out so strong and powerful is widow Barbara Mahama. Following her gruesome experience, there is no doubt that her words now could move mountains and even shift minds.

10. Ursula Owusu 

She is the communications minister in Ghana and what this means is that she has control over what we hear and see and how we hear them. She regulates the media landscape and makes sure that we are never shortchanged or cheated.
