I am surprised -King magazine has folded!! I remember buying it sometime back, because Eva Marcille (nee Pigford) of ANTM was on the cover -and stumbled across it's editor, -and respected journalist, Bonsu Thompson. I was surprised because, I just don't see Ghanaian names in American publications [and to my knowledge, -Ghanaians in America -just haven't achieved the success that British Ghanaians have in the world of media]. I have since learnt that many successful Ghanaians in the States -anglicize their names [what a shame] -and thus don't appear to be Ghanaian. As you can see [above], Bonsu Thompson [aka Bezo] is one busy brother. The Editor-in-chief of Hip-Hop Soul, Editor-at-Large of XXL, -and the founder of, Dreamz R Real Entertainment -Bonsu is a seasoned pro. If you are interested in music, modelling, being managed, branding or representation etc, -then you can also catch up with him on myspace:

Do you live in Accra or New York? Are you passionate about Ghana [ its people, its Movers & Shakers, its politics, its celebrities etc]? Are you interested in popular culture? Do you have access to successful Ghanaians in your city? Do you know how to research -and work to deadlines? Do you have the motivation to contribute to Ghana Rising, -as and when [yummy news involving the Ghanaian Glitterati -breaks in your city]? I am looking for two contributors; one based in Ghana [preferably Accra] and another based in the States [preferably NYC] - to contribute to Ghana Rising. If you are motivated, passionate about Ghana, can work to deadlines, have a good understanding of the English language, -and love fashion; beauty, lifestyle, popular culture, Ghanaian celebrities, -and are interested in writing for Ghana Rising; -please email me at: or Thanks Paulina xx
