For most third world nations in the heart of Asia, Latin America and tropical Africa, independence day is an unforgettable memory. For such countries, it’s more than just a day set aside to remember the day they were formed into sovereign states. They see it as remembrance of the day they were freed from colonialism and external aggression.
This day in history, 6th March 1957, which is 63 years ago, Ghana got her independence from the United Kingdom which was declared by late Prime Minister, Kwame Nkrumah.
It’s that time of the year again and proud Ghanian celebrities like actress Juliet Ibrahim, singer Yaa Jackson, comedienne Afia Shwarzenegger, Hamamat, Sister Deborah and Hajia 4 Real, among other celebrities, have decided to celebrate their country’s special day in a grand style.
Earlier today on Instagram, Hamamat shared photographs alongside Hajia 4 Real and Sister Deborah in colours reflecting their country’s flag with the following captions:
“Happy Birthday to my beloved country #Ghana.

“Welcome to Ghana, my homeland. Ghana is the “gateway to Africa” and Africa my sweet mother Africa is the land of Kings and QUEENS: the dream of the richest vegetation and wildlife, the birthplace of civilisation the home of Precious minerals and an everlasting nursery of people in culture.
