Ghanaian man dresses in a suit to hawk water melon on the streets

Pictured above is Daniel Nartey, a Ghanaian man who dresses in a suit to hawk water melon around Madina in Ghana's capital, Accra to eke a living. When asked why he dresses this way, Daniel said; 
"My pastor always says dress well no matter the job you do, so I decided to wear a suit. Some laugh at me, others encourage me and are willing to help me"
Daniel says his dressing gives him an edge which helps him make 100 % profit after sales
"I make 100% profit. I think it is because of how I dress, people notice me easily and want to buy from me," Mr Nartey said.

The 25-year-old is a primary school teacher and sells watermelon during weekends and when the school is on vacation. He is saving up to buy an oven and wants to one day own his own snack bar.

My Husband is Controlling and scornfully abusive

Dear Jura,

I have been married for about 6yrs. I really did’nt know him very well before we got married. I knew him from church as a good guy. He is a very good christain and prayerful. The problem is he complains about everything I do, I am expecting our 2nd baby even when I was pregnant with our 1st child I told him I don’t want him to be in the hospital with me because he never has anything good to say to me only finding faults.

I never have peace of mind, he tells me everything to do, he doesn’t want dirty dishes in the sink. He is just very controlling, abusive and insensitive with words and I always tell him. I use to think because he was a religious person maybe he is not used to how to treat a woman, and I will get marriage posts and send to him.

Some things he tries to change, but he still treats me badly, talks to me anyhow and I am not used to people disrespecting me, how much more the man I am married to. We quarrel all the time,I cry all the time and really miserable. I can’t communicate with him, he always shut me up, so these days I try to keep to myself even if things are going bad. He talks down at me, supports outsiders over me.

I am a young woman and can’t live like this for the rest of my life, my happiness is very important to me even if it means me leaving the marriage. He is a good person but not a good husband, I really want to leave him so he can find someone that can make him happy since I can’t. I want to leave him early so he can find someone else in order for me to move on with my own life. I don’t have a job , I am just thinking how can I move on and survive on my own with my kids.

 kindly give your advice.

Photos from Sultan of Brunei's son's wedding

The son of billionaire Sultan of Brunei, one of the world's richest men, got married to his beautiful bride in a bedazzled ceremony at the royal family's palace in the Brunei's capital. The Prince is the youngest child of the Sultan, Hassanal Bolkiah, and his wife, Queen Saleha, and is second in the line of succession to become the next Sultan of Brunei.

The wedding is taking place over a period of 11 days, and started on Sunday, 5 April, with the royal marriage proposal ceremony. Today, April 11, Prince Abdul Malik, 31, finally appeared with his 22 year old fiancee, Dayangku, and they exchanged vows in front of crowds of friends and family, nobility and foreign dignitaries amid splendour.

According to reports, also in attendance were seven Malaysian state rulers and the governor of Saudi Arabia.

This was the first time that the newlywed couple have appeared together since the festivities started and they made a grand entrance in matching gold outfits. Their traditional attires were both embellished with diamonds, while blushing bride Raabi'atul carried a bouquet made of dazzling gems, rather than flowers.

Prince Abdul Malik and his bride, full names Dayangku Raabi'atul 'Adawiyyah Pengiran Haji Bolkiah, also attended the wedding banquet later in the day wearing different and even more lavish clothes.

The new bride had changed into a beaded purple gown for the wedding banquet. She wore a bedazzled veil, along with a stunning diamond necklace set with tens of rubies, and a matching crown set with a scarlet gem the size of a 20-pence piece

Prince Abdul changed out of his gold wedding suit into ceremonial military dress, embellished with diamond epaulettes and collar. His new wife dazzled in a diamond and ruby crown, a matching necklace, a brooch, which was partly hidden by her diaphanous veil and a huge diamond ring in a platinum setting worn on her right hand.

22-year-old Ghanaian lady identified as Anita Otema (pictured above) has lost her left eye and parts of her body badly disfigured after her ex-boyfriend attacked her with acid at her Abeka Lapaz residence in Ghana following his pastor's revelation that she was behind his constant ill-health.

Narrating what happened to Ghana's Joyfm, Anita said her 28 year old ex-boyfriend Kwabena Fosu popularly known as Abodeman attacked her in the night at their home with the corrosive substance after his pastor accused her of being behind his recurring ill-health and told him she (Anita) was making money spiritually through his illnesses.
After her boyfriend was told this by the Pastor, he stormed their house where they both lived as a couple and poured the acid on her. He has been on the run since the incident.
