Fashion Connect Africa (FCA) as part of its second anniversary held a thanksgiving and cake cutting ceremony at its garment factory in Accra on Wednesday.

This follows an ongoing series of activities to appreciate those who have supported the organisation since its inception.

The major fashion brand will also be extending a helping hand to deprived communities and gift tools to some talented but resource-challenged creatives in Ghana.

The FCA is an emerging social enterprise established to change lives in the creative space and beyond. It was first outdoored in 2019 and had in the past two years impacted society, including creating jobs and empowering creatives across Africa.

Speaking at the anniversary celebration event, the CEO of the FCA and international model, Victoria Michaels, indicated that the anniversary presents an opportunity to revisit and relive the organisation’s contributions to the industry.

“It hasn’t been smooth all along but we are happy that despite all the topsy-turvy, we made lemonade out of lemons,” she stated.

According to her, FCA has focused on a three-way initiative – mainly the FCA Garment Factory, the FCA Creative Development Hub and the FCA Fashion Week.

“At the FCA garment factory, we make all sorts of industrial garments which include security uniforms, corporate wears, protective gears, school uniforms and so on.

“The FCA Creative Development Hub, just 800 meters from here has seen the training of 100 creatives, especially women and still counting. We have positioned the institute to focus on garment making, cosmetology and IT programs.

“The FCA Fashion Week held its second outing a few months ago and was celebrated as one of the most outstanding shows in Africa. Together with our partners, we are determined to continue in our quest to provide global platforms for creatives in the continent,” she added.

The Wednesday event was graced by Pieter Smidt Van Gelder, Deputy Head of the European Union Delegation to Ghana; Pastor David Akintunde, CEO Sunu Assurances; Pastor Gabriel Ibe, Chairman, Goldcard Group; showbiz personalities Mzvee, KOD, Akumaa Mama Zimbi and a host of others.

One of Ghana’s veteran highlife musicians, Rex Omar, has called on Akosua Agyapong to desist from making baseless allegations of misappropriation of funds against the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) and its board members.

Born Rex Owusu Marfo, the former board chairman of GHAMRO, said Akosua Agyapong’s accusations are far from right and should not be given listening ears.

According to him, any group or persons who claim to have evidence that GHAMRO is not making judicious use of their money should trigger legal actions to seek accountability.

Akosua Agyapong has accused the leadership of GHAMRO of embezzling funds belonging to the rights owners and also enriching themselves as a result of poor monitoring and accountability.

Akosua Agyapong, who has constantly trumpeted the rot at the royalty collection and distribution organisation, also expressed disappointment in board members of the collective society.

The female highlife musician however, called for reforms into the operations of GHAMRO, adding that there was no transparency, accountability and equitable distribution of royalties to the rights owners.

Reacting to claims Akosua Agyapong made concerning the collection and distribution of funds by the organisation, Rex Omar exhorted her to avoid badmouthing and seek better understanding of issues before making public pronouncements.

He added that Akosua Agyapong must allow persons elected to lead the group to do their work because she cannot, in any way, execute a single task when given same opportunity.

Rex Omar indicated that the board members of the collective society are striving to be transparent and accountable. However, some people have made up their minds to not pay attention or believe whatever is being said.

“In this life, there are two groups of people – there is somebody who says ‘I don’t know (understand) and explain to me’ and then somebody who would also say ‘I don’t know but whatever you want to explain I don’t care (about it); I’ve made up my mind and this is what I think’.

“We have majority of people like that. One of them like Akosua Agyapong. Since KojoAntwi’s time, she’s been going from television to radio stations saying ‘GHAMRO is stealing money, I have documents. If you have a proof that anybody has stolen GHAMRO money, it’s criminal. Take those documents, report and let the person be arrested; then, you have a case.”

He stated that people cannot jump “from one radio station to another” making accusations just for the sake of it.“Common restaurant you couldn’t run. It’s a joke,” Rex Omar teased.
