I planned to post about ‘personal branding’ for models, and ‘selling out yourself’, as a freelance model but then, something caught my attention, and had me smiling all night long…
The first time I came across Nana Kofi Acquah’s blog, was somewhere last year. I didn’t have much time, I had to grab his number and call him for some business. So tonight, I found myself intensely enjoying his blog, going through his posts over and over again. He blogs mostly about his images and poetry. Though he has an official website NKA
I love poetry, maybe that’s one of the reasons I’m still smiling. He put up a post about one of my favorite poems, ‘To His Coy Mistress‘ and yea, he worn more views from me, for his blog.
I can’t remember how I landed on his blog, tonight, but I totally fell in love with it. I didn’t intend to blog about him, or his images, but hey, he’s got me jinxed…I guess 😉
Nana Kofi Acquah is a Ghanaian Pro Photographer…and has worked in many countries: Ghana, Nigeria, Angola, Senegal, The Gambia, Liberia, South Africa, La Cote D’ivoire, Belgium and The Netherlands.

I spent all the time this evening, just reading your blog, your poems, and the images. They are really great…I have this smile on my face. It’s a long time I’ve felt this peaceful. I’m going through your posts, over and over again! Even-though I’m supposed to be posting about something on my blog, I’m enjoying your blog so much.
I could go through every single image without feeling guilty (for lazying around ; ) )
Thanks, You made my evening 🙂
…and I’m still smiling
