The advertising landscape in Ghana has seen a tremendous evolution over the years due to advanced technology and better marketing strategies from top-notch companies in the country.
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Some of the adverts that graced our TV screen with the invention of mass media were hilarious to say the least. Other adverts that came along the line, proved to be so popular that they became adopted into everyday life.
Some of the strategies used in the TV commercials sought to tell stories before bringing out the main reason for the advert. Some companies also adopted the use of animations to advertise their brands, products and services.
There were times that some companies also used their adverts to sort of ‘degrade’ products and services of their competitors.
Today, YEN.com.gh brings to you some of the very classic adverts (from our point of view) that would bring a lot of memories from the past.
1. Tigo's honey Coochiecoochie
2. Vodafone's ad that was made into a series
3. Pure evaporated milk
4. Vodafone's Blackberry Offer
5. Keysoap's Medofo Pa
6. The contraceptive advert that shows during the airing of "Things We Do For Love"
7. Tigo's advert
8. UTV's advert
Meanwhile, Dr Ayisha Baffoe-Ashun has shattered glass ceilings and has blazed the path for other women after it was reported that she had become the first-ever female PhD holder in Architecture.
She set this enviable record at Ghana's prestigious Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in the Ashanti region of Ghana.
Dr Ayisha Ida Baffoe-Ashun formerly known as Ayisha Ida Haruna would hold her head up high as the primus inter pares and would look to see other exceptional women blaze the trail she has set.
She became the first woman to receive a Doctor of Philosophy in Architecture from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) by dint of hard work and dedication to make a name for herself.
Dr Ayisha Baffoe-Ashun is currently an assistant lecturer at the renowned KNUST and with her latest feat, a huge promotion would be in the offing due to her latest certificate.
