Ghana Stars (spoken word & music)

Osekre performance

My home boy Osekre had a book launch in NY a few days back and I had the chance to photograph event. The best part of the nostalgic Ghanaian songs and witty rhymes was the opportunity to also meet Blitz the Ambassador -a black star (no affiliation with the football team) and witness first-hand the Achimota High School graduate's lyrical genius.

Blitz the Ambassador
