Did you know Rihanna follows a local Ghanaian fashion designer from the capital - Accra, on social network(s). We love this story, it's a true testament of what's show casing in Ghana today. It won't be long before we're well known as brilliant Ghanaian designers featured in Paris Fashion Week and if we look back just five years ago, this would have been considered a pipe dream.
When talent is exposed in the right way and promoted through social networks such as Ghana Buddy, it helps a great deal to get people to discuss and thus bring to the forefront above the topics of doom and gloom, the popularity of local talented artists in Ghana today.
In our featured video clip on Ghana Fashion Designers https://www.facebook.com/ghanabuddy/posts/1515762488731998 , Papa Oppong destined for Macy's incubator programme in Washington DC, shows just how it's done, from no-one to someone in such a short time, and is one the best examples of our talent today. By all-means not the only talented designer in Ghana, but currently one of our favourites.
