Happy Independence day, one and all. Ghana is 65 years old! Hip-hip hurray! Sixty-five years ago, Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, the first Ghanaian Prime Minister and President announced in his iconic words, “Ghana, our beloved country, is free forever.”
It was a pronouncement that rang through the annuls of history and contributed to the identity of what it meant to not only be Ghanaian but also black and African.
There is so much Ghana has offered the world. From music on the world stage, culture in dance and kente and even simple everyday inventions such as the Veronica bucket and Charles Antipem’s Science Set.
We at BraPerucci believe our Motherland has a whole lot more to offer yet still. We are a hardworking and never-say-die people and it shows wherever Ghanains go. On this day of days while we take stock of everyone who contributed to the fight for Independence we look at everyone representing and recognising Ghana our Motherland.
