- Social media is lit after the photo of an Accra Girls High School student popped up 40 years after it was taken
- The photo was first shared by a popular Facebook page and has since been posted by others
- Many have commented while highlighting the fashion sense of female students at the time
A photo of an Accra Girls High School student captured in 1979 has surfaced on the internet and has since generated conversations about the fashion sense of Ghanaian females students 40 years ago.
While the photo happens to be in black and white, the young lady still looks adorable after 40 long years.
Accra Girls High School is one Ghana’s top performing schools and its female students are not only known to be brilliant and intelligent but also possess unique sense of fashion.
And this unidentified lady's elegance, composure and camera-friendly posture would have one believe that she was a professional model at the time she was captured.
Her natural hair and exceptionally smooth skin stood out, depicting a true African queen despite the photo having lived nearly half a century.
The other magic is her straight totted dress, cut below her knees which gives an idea of how students at the time earned their style and class.
While the source that first posted her photo did not affirm whether or not she’s still alive, it was confirmed that she is an alumna of Accra Girls Secondary School.
Social media user, Adiza Bucary, revealed that, ''I was part of that generation(70s)!!! The good old days.........
We wore minis, micro minis and midis. Were our parents happy? Did we listen? No oooooo! We thought they were 'Colo'!''

The man, identified as Nana Oppong by social media user, Stephen Jalulah, shows a person with a near resemblance of the Ghanaian president sleeping while sitting in what could be a public setting.
