Fall (Davido) Cover by BraKwaku

Hello world!

Happy Tuesday, and I hope you are all doing well. The month has been a hot one in terms of weather conditions and we are trying to cope.

If you are in search of new voices, Bra Kwaku Jnr is one guy you should add to your playlist. He is not only a singer, but a guitarist and a pianist also. Double thumbs up.

He does music covers of various artistes, both local and international ones and his voice is exceptional and romantic.

One of my favourite works of his was Davido’s Fall. His blending of voices made the song very beautiful and a new kind of voice art.

To listen to the audio, click here. It will link you to his SoundCloud page. Do not forget to subscribe and like, comment, repost and download your favourite pieces.

Another good thing is, he has a YouTube page too. Subscribe, if you haven’t already and click on the notification bell, so that you can get notified anytime he uploads a video.

Show love by giving his videos thumbs up and hit subscribe.

Share with friends, loved ones and let’s show love in the world of music.

Thank me later, darlings!

Kelewele Date with Marietta (27/10/2017): Blogtober Review

Currently playing: 24k Magic – Bruno Mars

Hello world!

Welcome to another beautiful day. I hope you are doing great, even if you are not, I hope the day gets better.

Today is the last Friday of the month, which means, it’s time for a kelewele date.

How has the month been? I tried blogtober this year. To be honest, I did not enjoy the writing process of blogging every day in October. I think I prefer Blogmas to Blogtober. I even missed some days and it felt disorganized. Maybe, it’s because I was too busy and there was chaos almost every day and everywhere. I don’t think blogging every day is my thing. But I remember last December, I was able to blog every single day in December into the New Year and I really enjoyed doing it. Unfortunately, for blogtober, the desire wasn’t there.

but I love every post I wrote, I put effort in each of them

I wouldn’t jump into conclusions and say I will not do it again. Maybe, next year would be better.
In case you missed the Blogtober posts, I will list them below;

So, what have you been up to?

#ChristmasIsComing (Blogtober Day 18)

Hello world!

I wasn’t able to blog yesterday, I wasn’t having the desire to write. And that is okay. If I had forced myself to write, the post might not be interesting to read.

Thank goodness, today is 25th October, and I am only excited because of one little thing.

Christmas. Is. Coming.

It is 60 days, 17 hours, 14 minutes, 16, 15, 14, 13 seconds to Christmas.

I just can’t wait, to start decorating, to start playing Christmas music out loud, to start going to December events, start making home treats like chips, and pancakes, and doughnuts, involve myself in spreading joy and cheers to show the world that Christ is born, Countdown to Christmas etc.

And watch Christmas movies mostly from Hallmark.

As for that guy who usually follows Christmas uninvited. What’s even his name?

 Oh yes! The Harmattan.

Well, I can’t tell whether he would be coming or not.

I don’t care either. He better not come.

But you know, without harmattan, there is no Christmas feeling in Ghana.

Hmmm, anyway, it’s his time of the year. He can bring Christmas with him, but I pray Christmas does not come with him.😂😂😂

Christmas is coming and I can feel it.

Movie Review: It’s Okay That’s Love (Blogtober Day 16)


Everyone’s prone to mental breakdown if they suffer a traumatic experience, but everyone just acts like that would never happen to them.
-Jo Ding Min

Hello world and happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend.

Today’s post is a movie review and it’s been long since I wrote any sort of review on the blog, even a movie review. I have for you a movie review and it’s a seasonal movie containing only 16 episodes. I love seasonal movies like that with less than five seasons and few episodes. The only long seasonal movie I enjoyed was Pretty Little Liars, and this movie had only one season.

Never judge a movie by its promotional ads. It is metaphorical

So, this drama series is K-Drama (Korean Series) and since my teenage years I have always been a big fan of Korean series and movies, so I was pretty excited to binge watch this. Sorry for so many conjunctions in that line, lolz xx.

Let’s begin with the review.

 I finished watching this Korean drama series about two weeks ago and I am watching it again with mum. Even though the cases were extreme, I managed to find humour in it. All the characters had some sort of mental and emotional problems and that alone opened my eyes to issues like this. It taught me that no matter where we find ourselves, someone somewhere might be experiencing mental or emotional problems due to experiences in the past.

A perfect example is a character named Jang Jae Yul, who was a writer and a radio DJ. The return of his brother from jail made him to start experiencing such mental breakdown. He was invited to a talk show and he was on the panel with a Psychiatrist lady doctor. They weren’t in good terms from the beginning. The funny part was when they became housemates for some months and soon, there was a shooting star of feelings. Through their relationship journey, they were able to fight and cure their emotional and mental problems.

Everyone else in the movie had other disorders that were not easily identified unless they were in a situation that made them exhibit those symptoms.

Know that someone out there is praying 24 hours a day, just for you.
-Jang Jae Yul

I enjoyed the movie a lot and learnt a lot. I will recommend this movie to anyone.

My favourite OST (Original Soundtrack) was Hero by Family of the Year.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Those of you who’ve been through many goodbyes including myself, there’s still hope for us all
-Jang Jae Yul

Writing Journal Entry: Bleeding Writer

As I am a writer

The ink is my blood

I bleed words

With pain and sadness

With joy and happiness

With hope to build a home

And love to heal the world

And with romance,


Let's leave that for space

For that alone can contain

All our romantic fantasy.
