Deborah Owusu-Bonsu, popularly known as Sister Derby is a Ghanaian television presenter, musician, model and academic, of Akan origin and a former presenter at E.tv Ghana. She is also a former fashion designer and for the past year or so she has been trending on the news for the back and forth she has engaged in after Fella Makafui stole her boyfriend Medikal from her.
Well the last of this long winded saga has eventually ended with Fella Makafui being pregnant by rapper Medikal.
Ever since then we have not heard from Deborah until today. Fans of the ‘African Mermaid’ as she titles herself, were graced with beautiful editorial images celebrating her birthday and we were totally inlove with them
Although, we noticed something different to the usual Ghanaian celebrity birthday images. There was not one smile in any of the pictures. In addition to that, she’s dressed as a bride, with a bouquet of roses. So we have a sad bride with a bouquet of roses (lying in a dirty bath tub in one image) for her birthday pictures.
We would hate to attach this fabulous day of hers to the loss of Medikal in her life, but it would be hard to do so with such images for birthday shots. We could be and hope totally wrong but losing a loved one is not an easy reality. Well, fashion speaks louder than words, see the images and you decide for yourself.
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
