Background And Prospects:
C.E.O of M’Idea Titans, Madam Mushura Don-Baare who started the defunct Spyghana blog explained that evolution, business limitations, the desire to serve clients better and the need to build a stronger, unique and more acceptable brand informed the decision to rebrand Spy Ghana to www.newsghana.com.gh.
She was very excited about the growth of the idea which started as a hobby in 2012. The businesswoman and social worker re-counted the breakthrough which occurred as she was made the focus of a conference due to an article she published.

The website now has several partnerships with other local and international organisations such as Google News and Yahoo News. International news agencies like the BBC, CNN, Daily Times (Nigeria), Sun City TV (Nigeria), Aljazeera and New York Times among others had cited Spy Ghana in some of their publications. She was hopeful that News Ghana will achieve higher laurels.
