Today is Ghana's independent day celebration. In 1957, they gained their independence, that makes them 64 years today. I will be sharing pictures from all social media about the colorful celebration.
Ghanaians are known for their colorful Kente prints. Today it was in full display by so many people to commemorate their big day.
Today in History, 64 years ago, on March 6, 1957, Gold Coast (Now Ghana) attained its independence from British colonial rule becoming the first sub-Saharan African country to gain independence under the leadership of Kwame Nkrumah.
Some big brother Naija housemates joined in celebration with them. Prince, Nengi and Tacha. Recall that Tacha is half Ghanaian. She has a lot of emotional attachment over there. Prince and Nengi also have fans from there. They were recently in Ghana for a meet and greet. See how they celebrated:
According to a post by a Ghanaian, he wrote:
"We are celebrating 64 years of Freedom and Justice because of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. 🙌🏾
Kwame Nkrumah (1909-1972) was the first president of Ghana. On 6 March 1957, he declared the country's independence. 🇬🇭 #HappyIndependenceDayGhana."
Here is wishing our sister Nation Ghana a very happy independence day. May their Nation be strong and great. More pictures from social media as posted by Ghanaians;
