Along the Gulf of Guinea lies the beautiful West African country of Ghana blessed with rich and vibrant traditional cultures that differ from one ethnic group to another, which is accepted without interference from other religions groups making the country to take life at a relaxed pace and view time as a series of events rather than a matter of hours or minutes.
Recently the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) announced a ban on drumming and noise-making which commenced on May 10 2021 ahead of the annual traditional rite that precedes the celebration of the Homowo Festival referred to as "Odadaa" by the chiefs and people of Ga Mashie.
The ban requires silence and tranquillity for more than a month after the ritual planting of the crops hence Religious bodies and the Traditional Authorities observed this tradition for the past 30 day without positioning of loudspeakers outside the premises of churches, mosques and pubs making the capital city peaceful but boring.
In the early hours of today Thursday, June 10 exactly one month of the ban, the Ga Mashie, which comprises of seven clans namely Sempe, Otublonhum, Abola, Asere, Akugmage, Gbese and Ngleshi Alata, having overwhelming majority living along the coast of Ghana in towns such as Ada, Tema, Nungua, Teshie, La, Labone, Osu, Korle-Gonno, Chorkor, Agege and Dansoman has performed rituals to lift ban on drumming and noise making in Accra.
These beautiful photos from the scene will make your day as it undeniable facts that Ghana is indeed blessed with admirable culture and traditions.
