Tonight’s episode was on FIRE! KSM’s first guest, Nathaniel Padi, was a 14-year old computer whiz who has been developing software for two years! He recently designed an app called Spacecraft which allows users to schedule their time wisely. In the future, Nathaniel would like to design an app which will allow Ghanaians to locate the nearest vendor of Burkina, a popular drink made of cow’s milk and millet! If you could design an app, what would it be? Post your answers here or on our Facebook page!
Veronica Commey, a sports journalist for the Ghana News Agency, also made an appearance on the show tonight. She shared her passion for sports with the TGIF team. Veronica has a fascinating and inspiring life story! After attending primary and secondary schools which did not adequately prepare her for higher learning, she successfully broke into a profession that is usually dominated by men. Veronica admitted to having to sacrifice a lot to achieve her dreams, but she and KSM agreed that Ghana needs more female representation on the field and on the web when it comes to sports journalism. What do you think? Does the sports industry need an equal balance of voices from men and women?
Here is Veronica Commey with Sapphire’s own Chief Moomen. Tonight, on his new segment, “Your Moment with Moomen,” the Chief presented a hilarious letter from a fan. The letter talked about the strikes which have been stirring things up in Ghana for the last few weeks. It seems, said the anxious letter-writer, that the only people who have not been on strike have been the politicians. Chief Moomen thought that proposed an interesting question: what would happen if Ghanaian politicians went on strike? Tell us your thoughts!
KSM’s last featured guests of the night, who are pictured above, were Fredrick and James Ansah, two gentlemen from Koforidua who have managed to build a working car completely out of scrap metal! Even the engine of the vehicle is constructed from random materials! What makes the story even more amazing, though, is that neither Fredrick nor James has a driver’s license. Whenever they are pulled over by the police in their homemade car (which is unregistered), officers usually laugh and let them pass on their way!
Both the Ansah brothers and Veronica Commey originally contacted TGIF through Twitter. The power of social media websites like Twitter and Facebook is enormous, so send a message to one of our online pages and you could be the next guest on Thank God It’s Friday!

Tonight’s episode ended with a hot debate that you don’t want to miss. Tune in on Sunday afternoon at 1pm or check out the conversations on Facebook and this page to join the discussion: should college graduates who are conducting their National Service be made to direct traffic? What do you think?
Here are Selorm Kwaku Boadi (a National Service Person) and Kafui Dey (the host of “Who Wants to be Rich?”) in a heated discussion about the question of traffic directing for National Service.
