Violence Against women march

Dozens of women in the capital marched to protest the brutal violence that has been happening this the country for a long time now. Ever since the #metoo movement began, women all over the world have found their voice and are coming out in their numbers to speak out against the horrific acts of violence against women. The march climaxed with a vigil at the Elle lokko warehouse and saw a number of women share their personal stories of hurt and pain.

The Pop Shop, a fashion waste initiative

Yup! Our own fashion waste reduction initiative is running again this time in a brand new space. We had mad fun as folks came around to shop and vibe with us. This time around we had a Polaroid moment thanks to our lovely friend Edinam Azumah. The Pop Shop is open Monday-Friday from 10am-7pm, pass through whenever you are around.

Revival! Revival!! Revival!!!

We linked up with the guys from Afrodistrict, Yayra & Kwamina, for two awesome days of a pop-up upcycling experience. It was a scene of creative buzz; folks were getting pants resized, patches sewn on shirts, jackets & bags, just a whole lot of zany stuff. If not for anything at all we were able turn old, second-hand items into cool,trendy stuff.

Oh, most of the clothes came from Kantamanto, Accra’s very own 2nd hand clothing hub, so we really did revive the fashion waste initiative during this event.

East Meets West

Our lovely friends Makeda & Maame held a pop up event dubbed East meets West | A Rwandan experience in the heart of Accra and it was truly an amazing affair. For some of us that know next to nothing about the fashion & lifestyle scene in other African countries in the east and south of the continent, it was chance for us to see what a country like Rwanda had to offer. The vibe was all bubbly and lively as we danced to good music whiles shopping for some cool stuff  they had on display. They promised us shopping, selfies, cocktails, interesting convos and they did just that. We look forward to having them again with us for such an event.

Another Hip Hop in Ghana Playlist feat. DJ Vimtinz & Temple

Our team in collaboration with our cultural influencer friends from Accra City Nice put together a playlist listening session dubbed “Hip-Hop in Ghana playlist”. The idea was to have a block-party style listening session where the audience gets to jam and rave to mad Hip-Hop tunes. Turns out that’s exactly what happened; the situation was LIT!!. We had cool and virtually new acts like Kwadjo Spiri, Jo Esko, Yung Bazz among others come to perform much to the pleasure of the crowd. Temple of Pata Camp took us through some of his favourite Hip-Hop songs and kept the energy high with his dope freestyle performances. All in all, it was a really good event and the folks that came through left the place with a memorable experience etched in the back of their minds. A podcast of the discussion we had during the event is available on the Accra City Nice Soundcloud page.

Yoga and Soul feat. Irene Donati and Ria Boss

We had a really interesting playlist session with yoga instructor Irene Donati of Yoga For Unicorns and the Queen of GH Soul, Ria Boss. They gave an insightful look into how yoga is practised (with a few breathing lessons obviously), a conversation on life, love & music as well as a smooth serenade from Ria Boss herself. It was a night of fun, music and drinks bringing the month of June to a beautiful end.
