A street that is located in Berlin, Germany, was named after Ghana in 1958, exactly a year after the country gained independence from colonial rule.
According to the Director for Sub-Saharan Africa & Sahel, Robert Dölger, in a tweet sighted by Kojo_Smile_love, the honor was conferred on Ghana because it was the first country in Sub-Saharan Africa to gain independence.
It has been 63 years since the naming of the street and recent photos from Berlin show that the name is intact in the same manner it was labeled in 1958.

The German Ambassador to Ghana, Christoph Retzlaff, also confirmed this report in a post made on his verified Twitter handle.
Ghana gained independence on March 6, 1957, from the colonial rule of the British after being led to freedom by its first president, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
On March 6, 2021, the country marked its 64th Independence Day anniversary but without parades around the country due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
As it was earlier reported, many Ghanaians took to social media to celebrate the big day for the country including ladies who went all out with highly creative photoshoots that have gone viral.
