Ghana must congratulate Kwaw Ansah for Bisa Aberwa Museum - Prof. Akosa
He was on hand to present a citation to Kwaw Ansah for his exploits in film at Ghana Club’s Film Pioneers Achievement Gala event in Accra on September 20 but Prof. Agyeman Badu Akosa couldn’t help patting the acclaimed filmmaker on the back for another outstanding feat.
The well-known pathologist, academic and politician said Kwaw Ansah had proved what a patriot and real asset he was to this country by singlehandedly putting up the Bisa Abrewa Museum at Nkontompo, Sekondi in the Western Region.
“Those of you who have not been there, please find an opportunity to go to Nkontompo and just go and see something for yourselves,” Prof Akosa said in reference to the museum located near the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital.
The Bisa Aberwa Museum was officially inaugurated on July 28, 2019. It is four floors and outdoor spaces that brim with information about the amazing achievements of black people from around the globe: Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America, the South Pacific, Asia and Europe.
The museum emphasizes solid attainments in areas such as visual arts, literature, film, music, architecture, philosophy, humanities, science and technology, social sciences and more.
Prof. Akosa described Kwaw Ansah as an African through and through who always had useful insights about the continent and that he dearly cherished him.
“I can without any equivocation state that I don’t believe there’s anywhere in this country where one individual has done what Kwaw Ansah has done by way of the Bisa Aberwa Museum. He needs to be congratulated by the whole country,” Prof. Akosa stated.
Kwaw Ansah thanked the management of Ghana Club after receiving his citation from Prof Akosa. He pointed out that it was incumbent on every African to tell the positive stories of the continent to the world at all times.
Another filmmaker, King Ampaw, also received a citation from Ghana Club for his contribution to the advancement of cinema in this country. Both him and Kwaw Ansah are members of the Club.
