The euphoria in hosting the 63rd Independence Day Celebration Parade for the first time in the Ashanti Regional Capital Kumasi appears to have had a spill over effect on the city’s iconic Shopping Centre, the Kumasi City Mall.

The mall located not so far from the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, was virtually filled to capacity on Friday with department shops Shoprite and Game as well as the food court taking the biggest share of the crowds.

Shop owners and vendors will not speak to Ghanaweb.com because of institutional structures and others because of the huge numbers they were attending to.

However, some of the shoppers indicated that the holiday afforded them the opportunity to both window shop and enjoy the ambiance of the mall with their families.

"I came here with my child who is visiting the mall for the first time in. I believe this is a good day to do something memorable to mark the independence of our country. We haven’t gotten there yet but I believe we are building on,” a young man, Michael Owusu told Ghanaweb's Ashanti regional correspondent.

Another lady who was spotted with her three children told Ghanaweb.com she had just come from the stadium with her children after observing the anniversary parade.

“If you see whatever went on at the stadium, the culture, the program it means we can really do things if we come together as Ghanaians and make Ghana proud. It was hot at the stadium but here is cool and they want to go have fun out there, “Abigail Osei recounted.

As at 2:00 pm, the play grounds were full of children riding electric cars and swimming with some parents enjoying music from a jama group, Morale dotcom who had pitched camps in the centre of the mall.

Taxi drivers, right sharing online drivers as well as fairly new tricycles also cashed in on the season virtually walking to anyone who showed signs of leaving the mall to solicit their custom.

Meanwhile traders some of whom spent the night in the stadium to secure good spots for trading had mixed accounts about their day’s sales.

The kebab and fast food stands were caught ball watching while the hawkers who found their way into the crowd made the best of the day.

A pineapple seller Akosua Fremah told Ghanaweb, "I usually hawk around Asokwa but I came here because of today’s event and by Gods Grace they have bought enough for me.”

Aliko Dangote is the richest man in Africa and should hardly lack anything but he does when it comes to one thing – a wife.

 

The Arsenal football club supporter who is divorced twice is still in dire need of a wife at the age of 62.

In a recent interview with Financial Times (FT), Dangote reveled that despite an ambition to build a business empire, having a wife is also a priority.

Speaking with David Piling in a Financial Times interview he said “I’m not getting younger….but it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time.

 

 

Speaking with David Piling in a Financial Times interview he said “I’m not getting younger….but it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time.”

Dangote is too busy to focus on choosing a new wife, according to him signaling that “right now, things are really, really very busy, because we have the refinery, we have the petrochemicals, we have the fertiliser, we have the gas pipeline.”



The list of Forbes Africa’s Billionaires for 2020 was revealed in February and once again Aliko Dangote remains the richest on the continent.

He has maintained that accolade for the ninth time in a row, as others on the list struggle to topple him.

According to Forbes the latest list only considered billionaires from only eight countries.

 

 

The list is dominated by billionaires from Egypt and South Africa where five billionaires each come from those countries.



Nigeria had four including President and CEO of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote and Morocco had two on the list.

Dangote remains in the lead with a net worth of $10.1 billion.

He is the founder of Dangote Cement, the continent’s largest cement producer and owns businesses across the continent.

Dangote also owns nearly 88% of publicly-traded Dangote Cement through a holding company.

The cement company produces 44 million metric tons annually and plans to increase its output 33% by 2020.

Part of his wealth also comes from the stakes he owns in publicly-traded salt, sugar and flour manufacturing companies
