Nana Damoah launches 6th book, Nsempiism
The Jamrock restaurant, located in East Legon considered to be one of the affluent suburbs in Accra, was full to capacity as invited guests and the general public gathered to welcome the birth of yet another exciting book from Nana Awere Damoah.
The book titled, Nsempiisim, his sixth, is a rich mix of social satire on the Ghanaian situation and value-laden anecdotes.
The audience was treated with rib-cracking comedy, poetry performances, local music and book readings.
Keynote speaker, Kwaku Sintim-Misa (KSM) observed that creativity should not be limited to those in the arts only as it is the case now.
He admonished everyone to embrace creativity since having a creative eye could be used to change the world.
Reviewing the new book, Chris Worla Essikpe of Star Oil, described it as compelling, gripping and non judgmental.
“It keeps you devouring and yearning for more. The language is simple, structure is easy to read, dramatic and suspenseful,” he added.
Nana Awere Damoah expressed gratitude to his wife, mother and father-in-law, Ebenezer William K. Richardson to whom the book was dedicated.
He also thanked all those who cheered, supported and encouraged him since he started his writing career over 20 years ago.
Mr Damoah holds a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Nottingham and a Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
He started serious writing when, in 1997, he won the first prize of the Step Magazine National Writing Competition.
