Today is International Men’s Day – a day for men AND women to celebrate positive male behaviour & also remind men it’s ok not to be Superman or 100% perfect.
The day is celebrated to highlight positive role models among men. The day also creates awareness about men’s issues like mental health, toxic masculinity and the prevalence of male suicide. International Men’s Day was first marked in 1992 and has grown since then to be celebrated in over 70 countries all over the world. It was founded in 1999 by Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, who was a history professor at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad & Tobago.
To celebrate this day, GBCGHANAONLINE is celebrating the positive value men bring to the world and to raise awareness of their wellbeing.
In virtually every field of human endeavour, from governance, to business, to science, to healthcare, to education, to the arts, to sports, to activism, to journalism, to innovation, to agriculture and to conservation, you will find an outstanding African pushing back the limits of what is possible.
For almost 20 years, he has been defying the odds and pushing the envelope when it comes to investigative journalism. His work has spanned various parts of the world. He has done work in many parts of the world, different parts of the country and globally recognized for his intrepid approach to telling the African story and exposing evil.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas, better known as Anas, is a Ghanaian investigative journalist whose objective is to “name and shame” wrongdoers in society.
He is famous for utilising his anonymity as a tool in his investigative arsenal and very few people had seen his face.
Anas maintains his anonymity by shielding his face when conducting TV interviews and making public appearances. His 2015 documentary film Ghana in the Eyes of God dramatically revealed corruption within the Ghanaian judiciary, where no fewer than 34 judges were suspended as a result of the documentary.
Anas’ primary focus remains in Sub Saharan Africa and his human rights investigations deal with creating a better life and providing equal opportunities for both children and adults.
Today is the perfect day to thank your personal hero!
To all of the sons, brothers, fathers, and husbands out there…Happy International Men’s Day!
