Tullow Ghana’s Scholar Kweku Banny Poised To Win TV3 2020 Mentor.

When Tullow Ghana rolled out its scholarship scheme in 2019/2020 academic year to augment the Government’s Free SHS policy, little did the oil exploration and production company in Ghana know that they were helping develop a music talent. Anthony Kweku Bassaw known in the showbiz circles as Kweku Bany, was one of the over 300 fortunate sons and daughters of fishermen/fishmongers or merely resident in a fishing community to become a beneficiary. Kweku was among those from the Axim Community of the Nzema East Municipality.

Kweku Bany, whose fisherman father died some years back dropped out of JHS and got involved in street hawking for some time even before re-entering to continue and eventually write the BECE. Lucky came his way, when the Government’s Free SHS became a reality.

However, there were still impendiments, as other school items that are not covered by the government policy for students could still not be acquired by Kweku’s single parent struggling mother.

Therefore, when the news was broken to Kweku that he had been selected for the Tullow Scholar’s Aid, some days after he had attended an interview for that purpose, his joy knew no bounds. This joy to him was so unique, as he was not only seeing an opportunity to just go through a second cycle and perharps move on to a tertiary stage, but a stronger belief that a higher educaton was a sure bet to sharpen his rapping talent, for which he was already popular in every neighbourhood the currents of life tossed him to stay.

Still in SHS 1 at the Half Assini Senior High School in the Jomoro Municipality of the Western Region, Kweku has got his rapping skills sharpened to the extent that TV3 couldn’t just help it but pen his name boldly among the last 16 Contestants selected after a country-wide auditioning for the 2020 edition of the prestigious Mentor.

Being the lowest in education and arguably the youngest among the contestants however, has not been anything to deter Kweku Bany, as he ranks high in the performances; with the TV3 Mentor Reloaded Second Edition contest entering its 3rd week.

Already, Kweku has picked the Best Performer during the 2nd week. He believes that with the support from his fans and all Ghanaians who believes objectively in good talent and will be voting for him, he will perform his heart and everything out, so he can dedicate the glory of winning the 2020 TV3 Mentor, to Tullow Ghana for the practically show the great change the company has brought to his life and those other scholars in divers ways.

In an interview with the Artiste’s Manager Ansah Billz on Nzema Fm, he expressed his appreciation to all the fans and supporters of Kweku Banny, especially from the Nzemaland, Takoradi and Shama for the ‘profound love shown so far, while seeking that the support by voting, be sustained, till we’re Done
