Ghanaian twins and celebrity photographers Samuel Appiah Gyan and Emmanuel Appiah Gyan, known popularly as “Twinsdntbeg” have been nominated in one of Uganda’s biggest fashion and style awards.
The twins, who have gained wide acclaim in and beyond Ghana for their magic with the camera lenses have been nominated for the “Fashion Photographer of the Year (Africa)” category at the Abranz Style and Fashion Awards to be staged in Uganda on Friday, December 13, 2019 at the Kampala Serena Hotel.
Speaking exclusively to Kobbykyeinews after hearing of their nomination, the duo couldn’t hide their joy that their works have been recognized and acknowledged outside Ghana and expressed their grievances at not being paid attention to by fashion award schemes in Ghana.
They further advised their fellow photographers in Ghana to look beyond, explore and go places beyond the borders of Ghana. “Our advise will be that there is a bigger market in Nigeria, Togo, in Africa as a whole there is so much going on that Ghana shouldn’t be the only destination for other photographers. So they should and put themselves out there and doing so will lead to more exposure and opportinities”, they said.
Twinsdntbeg have worked with many bigwigs and celebrities in and outside notable among them are the President of Ghana H.E Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo and his wife, the second lady of Ghana Mrs. Samira Bawumia, Former President Rawlings and many others.
