The hijab is a unique scarf that Muslim women start wearing from childhood to signify purity and respect for the tradition.

“Just a few days ago I decided to try my luck on one of the most popular reality Tv shows in Ghana. Ghana’s Most Beautiful, I know it’s a good opportunity for anyone who wanted to make an impact in their community to sell themselves and open great doors of sponsorship for them in their future activities…” Zainab narrated.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghanaian comedian and actor, Funny Face said he will never on any grounds disrespect international footballer Emmanuel Adebayor.

According to Funny Face, he does not want Emmanuel Adebayor to come for the cars he gave to him like what Shatta Wale did to one of his SM militants, Joint 77 after he disrespected him.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Funny Face said he is ready to do anything Adebayor orders him to do in an effort to protect himself from losing all the cars he acquired from him.
