The inaugural two-day Afro-Caribbean festival, kicked off with a Business Brunch on Monday, December 26, which featured two panel discussions focused on culture and business with some of the industry’s top representatives; and closed with a tete-a-tete conversation with Ghanaian Dancehall Artist Stonebwoy and renowned Nigerian-American culture journalist Ivie Ani. The business brunch invited the visiting diaspora and Ghanaian investors to shift their focus to the collaborative future of Ghana and the Caribbean; and unlock industry, trade, and investment opportunities between the two regions.
Day Two of the festival concluded the "December in Ghana" activities with a proper bashment at luxury venue The Underbridge in East Legon. More than just a party, this culturally immersive experience celebrated the possibilities of our shared futures and the collective liberation of the Black diaspora through Dancehall and Afrobeats.
