NG, The Meaning of Naked Gold
On September 21, 2023, citizens of Ghana have organized a peaceful protest to demand a safer, affordable, healthier and fairer Ghana for all. Under the current presidential regime, Ghana’s economic and health industry have plummeted severely causes a million people to fall under poverty in the last year according to sources. The protesters are working towards creating an international message to the government of Ghana to address these issues honestly and to step down from their positions.
Issues of corruption, money laundering, religious priorities, lack of health infrastructures, housing, farmland, food and hate crimes against the LGBTQ community are a few of the reasons citizens of Ghana are protesting.

A Ghanaian YouTuber was disallowed to move forward as a lawyer after passing the bar due to an anonymous person alleging offensive behavior. The law student and YouTube influencer took to Twitter to speak about what happened in November 2022 which caused Twitter conversations concerning the accusations against Ama Governor. Ama claims that she hasn’t been told why she’s been disallowed but she received communication from the lawyer association that her content or beliefs are not allowed. Ama is an open queer woman with nose piercings and many assume that those are enough reasons for Ama to be penalized from practicing Law in Ghana. Recently, the Chief Justice G. Torkornoo, stated in a televised conference that Ama Governor may not be called to the bar in Ghana because of her offensive behaviors.
Lizzo's former dancers have accused the singer of sexual abuse, weight shaming and allowing religious bullying from her tour dance captain.
Fans and media outlets shared information regarding Lizzo's reputation with former business partners that allege Lizzo is difficult to work with.
Lizzo responded on social media with a text box but she hasn't responded verbally. Lizzo denies the claims but the lawsuit is still standing until further notice or a silent settlement deal.
Despite multiple architecture and museum institutions denouncing David from their projects since the allegations were made public, David has continued to speak to the media and legal teams to deny claims of the sexual assault.
In recent reports, David's legal team shared documents with Ghana's government which disclosed the names of his accusers. Secretly, the names have been leaked and the identities of the women have been doxxed. Many people suspect David intentionally doxxed the women, but David and his team also denied those claims.
As the media follows this story, Ghana's government authorities remain silent on the manner and David still stands as the leader of the $30milliion Cathedral.
In a recent social media conversation, Jess Hilarious and TS Madison found themselves in a situation they didn’t start. Angelica Ross, Tasha K, Flame Monroe and Cherry the Boom shared their peace but let me break down the initial conversation. A trans woman spoke on social media about periods and her beliefs that women do not own periods. Apparently the context of this video was the inclusivity of non binary and transmen who have vaginas and menstruation. Unfortunately, the video went viral and was used to stir debates.
A young man by the name of O’Shea Sibley was murdered in Brooklyn New York, July 29 for voguing to Beyonce’s music with his friends seemingly while she was on tour in NYC. He was murdered by muslim men who made statements that homosexuality is against their faith. I don’t have information if they were immigrants or citizens nor their ages, but based on the video the murderer and his friends were very young and look to be in their 20s. It’s really nauseating how New York has claimed the lives of Jordan Neely and O’Shea Sibley at the hand of non-Black people who feel they can police people on their freedoms. The police and citizens feel they have the power to decide if a Black person’s life is free with little to no repercussions. These two stories didn’t receive their just due and I believe because Jordan was claimed to be homeless and O’Shea was gay, those are not qualifiers for the perfect victim and those qualities do not gain the same rage when perceived cis hetero young black boys and men are murdered by the police.
