Barely a week to the 62nd independence anniversary of Ghana, Twitter is alive with #1759Celebrates1957 as users attempt listing 62 icons, monuments, foods, slang and things that make us truly Ghanaian.
The #1759Celebrates1957 conversation has been trending for some time now and has caught along so much that popular sports journalist Gary Al-Smith was not left out as he thanked God for foods like waakye, kenkey and gob3. User @the_art_of_elle couldn’t be more proud to be Ghanaian as the country draws closer to celebrating its 62 independence anniversary. @haynat500 on his part, wants to relive his heydays as he remembers his pilolo days – a typical Ghanaian hide and seek game.
The question on everyone’s lips now is who started the hashtag and what do the numbers in the hashtag mean?
