    Great post, Mr. Degadjor.
    I find your blog very resourceful with lots of information on Social issues from Ghana. I would appreciate if you could help me develop a blog and also start writing just like you do. My passions are Fashion and Women issues.

    Wonderful.
    Glad to see a Ghanaian developer coming up with an app that will give BBM & WhatsApp a run for their money. Great job, folks. Kudos to the guys at @MESTghana.

    Waiting patiently for saya to take off, i will embrace it 100% no matter what. They should not limit it like the others do. It is not everyone who can afford the black berry, apple and the androids. Just come down to our level and we will make it happen in ghana. MORE VIM.

      @Moralis; thanks for passing by and I’m glad to hear such good comments from you.
      Never had any problems with Google but its was more of a hosting issue which is currently resolved.
      Let me know, what you want to discuss and I shall proceed from there. Cheers
