Sister Deborah’s Humanitarian Activism in the Shadows


Sister Deborah, a.k.a. the African Mermaid, is an award-winning pop artist, creative art director, and fashion icon who has discreetly had a huge influence in philanthropic initiatives.

While she is well-known for her eye-catching appearances, music videos, and live performances, it is her love, compassion, and understanding for vulnerable children, marginalized groups of people, and the environment that distinguishes her.

Her most recent charity effort was supplying food for the Easter Monday party at Accra’s Street Academy, which is located behind the Art Centre. For the past five years or more, the African Mermaid has fed the Street Academy students on major occasions such as Easter Monday. Approximately 600 people, including mothers, siblings, and the elderly, are fed on a regular basis.

On these occasions, the cuisine is freshly prepared with local products and presented in clean leaves. The African Mermaid Foundation (T.A.M.) raises awareness about the need to limit the use of plastics by educating and instilling the habit of utilizing leaves and brown paper for packing.

Victoria buckets with soap and water are available on the grounds for everyone to use before and after lunch. Dustbins are also provided to ensure that garbage is properly disposed of. The children are taught proper manners and personal hygiene in this manner.

T.A.M. Foundation received support from Upcycle It Gh in the shape of cloth tote bags that the children could use for grocery shopping instead of single-use plastic bags during the most recent children’s celebration.

Sister Deborah has always used her creativity and social media platforms to address pressing social concerns and encourage social change, as evidenced by songs such as Refuse Reuse Recycle, Child Care, Atewa Forest, and African Mermaid, which she co-wrote with her brother, Wanlov the Kubolor. In December 2020, the siblings earned the Environment and Sanitation Award.

Her philanthropic effort is more concerned with the well-being of the recipients than with her personal accolades. She recognizes and feels that giving should always be focused on the problem at hand. In the case of the T.A.M. Foundation, the goal is to help children and educate them about the oceans and their surrounds in order to ensure a safe planet for all of us. Sister Deborah’s modesty is pleasant in a society when people frequently seek notoriety for their charity deeds.
