HFC Bank has put together an initial investment package of 2,000 Ghana cedis which available to be won by potential and existing clients of the bank.

Black Secret was on hand to do free make-up – and so that was where the traffic started for the freebies-loving population we all are.

The ladies who came out of there looked like what Ghana’s cocoa looked like after exiting a Swiss factory – finished product of beauty.
