You Can Reach Your Goals Through Reading – EL

Awards-winning musician, singer and songwriter, Elorm Adablah also popularly known as EL, has advised children on the need to read.

According to the rapper, it is good to cultivate the habit of reading as this can help them achieve their life goals.

This advice comes at a time when research shows that children’s interest in reading, including that of adults, is seen to be waning.

According to EL, “No matter what you want to do in your life, as long as you read to educate and empower yourself, the sky is your limit.”

EL has, thus advised everyone to pick a book once a while and as often as one can do so and read.

The ‘Koko’ hitmaker made these statements in a documentary produced by Ghana Book

Development Council (GBDC).

The documentary forms part of GBDC’s campaign, dubbed “Learn to read; read to learn” .

This documentary however aims to create and increase awareness of the numerous benefits

of reading, particularly to children.


The documentary comprises prominent personalities and role

models who still make time to read in spite of their busy schedule.

These prominent personalities and role models, who are people the children readily identify

with, have been recorded reading aloud children’s books, particularly books written by

Ghanaian authors. EL read from Ghanaian Bed Time stories “Nii Kodzo Tawia & Esuon”.

The Ghana Book Development Council (GBDC) is an Agency under the Ministry of Education

mandated to oversee the development, regulation and effective planning of the Book Industry

in Ghana. One of the functions of the GBDC is to ensure the establishment of suitable

machinery for the promotion of reading among all age groups, particularly among children.

To promote reading among school children and also promote indigenous books, the GBDC

periodically organises Book Fairs and Reading Festivals as well as forms Reading and Creative-

Writing Clubs at Basic and Senior High schools.
