Lethal B, 24, real name Maxwell Ansah, was joined by an array of top UK and Ghanaian artists including; Keisha White, Praye, Nkasei and Wutah to commemorate Ghana’s 50th year of independence. Other attractions on the night also included an amazing hair and fashion show courtesy of Sleek and an authentic African dance performance by Ujamaa.
Ghana, the first sub-Saharan African country to gain independence from British colonial rule, celebrated it’s independence on Tuesday 6th March 2007. Ghana, known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant festivals, friendliness and hospitality, has developed and advanced into one of the most popular and visited counties in Africa.
Richmond Agyekum, managing director of Rich Promotions, one of the organisers of the event commented;
“This year’s celebration was an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Ghana and Ghanaians in the Diaspora. Over 4,000 people turned up for the dance although many were unable to get in; due to a number of individuals who refused to behave accordingly. However, I was truly overwhelmed by the response and it is great to see young British-born Ghanaians and friends of Ghana so in touch with their heritage.”
The theme for the anniversary is Championing African Excellence. Ghana’s first president, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, envisioned the country as the guiding light of African independence and solidarity.
