For a very long time, we have heard much of the story about the struggle for the Independence in Ghana. Yes, but it has all been the story of how the political figures, traditional leaders, educationists among others were the principal characters.
How about the Creative artists? Did the Creative Arts play any strategic role in that famous struggle or only entertained people after the battle was finally won? If the Creative Arts—Performing & Fine—did play a role, then why is that part of the story not told? And if it didn’t, why?
On Sunday, 7 March, 2021—a day after the Independence Day commemoration— at 6:30 pm, please make time to be part of the educative & entertaining Independence Day Conversation—Heyeli Nkɔmɔdie—which shall be interluded with performances such as poetry Spoken word, palm wine music, dance, among many other things Noyam Dance Institute, Afro Boys Band, Oswald Okaitei, Akuajuo Tekyerema and many others.
