From a very humble beginning, the award scheme which aims at recognising and rewarding women who have affected their respective communities positively, now ranks among the best schemes in the country and beyond.

And with the stakes very high, top class personalities from the diplomatic corps, traditional, business, political and sports fraternity are expected to grace the anticipated high-profile awards gala.

On the bill to spice the evening are musical performances from vintage musical trio – Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Akatakyie and lyricist cum dancer Mr Drew.

CEO of GOWA, Mrs. Afua Asantewaa Aduonum said ahead of the event “…indeed God has been good, we look back and all we can say is God has been awesome. All the credit goes to Him.

“Five years ago, on the evening of the event, my husband and I were combing the whole of Accra in search of trophies for the deserving winners after a friend duped us at the eleventh hour.

“Great personalities like Ambassador Ray Quarcoo, Charles Osei Asibey,   actor Peter Richie, Mama Francisca Duncan Williams, Oheneyere Gifty Anti, Akumaa Mama Zimbi, among others and sponsors like Tasty Tom, Twellium Industrial Limited, Rwand Air believed in us although we had just began.”

She added, “We are indeed grateful to all, especially the media, sponsors and hardworking team who have contributed to our success story.

“Our next target is to move beyond the shores of this country and reward women who are impacting lives positively. Red Carpet starts at 4pm and main event at 6pm.”

Baba who was named Francis Yaw Ofori died Thursday, September 8, 2022, after battling an unconfirmed ailment.

He died not long after he had said in an interview with Bryt TV that he was spiritually attacked but he survived.

The family initially wanted to organize his funeral in his hometown up north.

However, that decision was annulled due to a protest mounted by his colleagues in the showbiz industry.

The funeral will therefore be held on November 19, 2022 in Accra at the Arts Centre just as the one-week observation.

Until his death, Baba Spirit was one of the entertainers who brought humour into Ghanaian homes.

He is well remembered for his much-publicised 2018 exhibition boxing bout with veteran boxer Ayittey Powers, which was held at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra and screened live on television.
