YEN.com.gh has sighted a video making the rounds on social media in which Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and his ‘Freedom’ colleagues are dancing to Shatta Wale’s ‘Freedom’ song.
In the video, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, who championed Ghana’s campaign for Independence back in 1957, together with the rest of the Big Six are captured freely dancing to Shatta’s song.
Definitely, it is an edited video made purposely for Tuesday’s 61st Independence Day celebration.
Ghanaians are noted for such creativity –the making of funny comments, quotes, videos, and even audios to describe a situation– and that is exactly what has been done for Kwame Nkrumah.
The Big Six, together with the Ghanaians who were present at the 1957 Independence declaration dancing in this latest video of course were not really dancing to the song as most of them died long before Shatta Wale composed his song last year.
It is however, the fun thought that really counts.
Checkout the video below:
According to Shatta, he was motivated by Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’ song to do his ‘Freedom’ song.
He disclosed in an earlier interview that Patapaa nearly ended his career when ‘One Corner’ rose to the top of most local and international music charts.
Wale said he needed to think of a similar controversial song like ‘One Corner’ so that Patapaa would not take away the shine of his career.
Meanwhile, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was the first Prime Minister of Ghana. He was the leader of the Big Six, who led the struggle for Ghana’s Independence.
The rest of the Big Six were Obetsebi Lamptey, Ako Adjei, J B. Danquah, William Ofori Atta, and Edward Akufo Addo.
