Ghana: "Girl Talk" Goes Traditional - to Espouse African Beauty

The Girl Talk musical concert is the only a female dominated agenda musical show that seeks to promote the confidence of women in Africa. This time it would be celebrating the African beauty.

The show, which has been in existence for the third year running, dubbed "African Made In Ghana", would be coming off on the 20th December, 2013, at the National Theater. The show is to promote the beauty in the African.

The Deputy Minister of Tourism Culture and Creative Arts, Mrs. Dzifa Gomashie speaking at the press launch of the Girl Talk for 2013 observed that the beauty of a woman should not be expressed as to expose cleavages and other negative aspects of a woman.

She further appealed to Ghanaians to support the African woman to grow to greater heights in all aspects of life. "I know one fine woman, who knows that she is beautiful and has a mirror at home, and yet she will cover up and look decent, and that is Becca", the Minister added.

Mrs. Gomashie said "There is something which we bring to the global world which is our identity and sets us apart from the rest of the world. If we insist on looking like everybody, whom are we going to compete with?

"It is unusual this days to see a young woman who dresses decently, yet this is one fine young woman who knows she is beautiful and yet is willing to cover up", she stressed.

Becca, also speaking at the launch, appreciated the media's support for the 'Girl Talk' brand since its inception two years ago.

She noted that, she and her team, in spite of the numerous challenges that come with organizing such events, have stayed focused on using the concert to motivate ladies to believe in themselves and have faith that their dreams are achievable.
