Butetown’s night of celebrations for Ghana Independence Day

Words and picture by Eleanor Fox

Following the flag raising earlier on in the day, Butetown came together once more at night to eat food, dance and come together to celebrate Ghana Independence Day.

The citizens of Butetown had marked the 66th anniversairy together as a community, to remember and honour those who led the country to independance in 1957. Meeting new and old friends and spending the night to sing and dance to the songs of their nation.


Kahpun, award-winning artist and songwriter, born and raised in Cape coast, Ghana, performed on the stage together with DJ Prada, in Butetown Community Centre to share his love for his nation and to bring the people together with his music.
