Ghana is 63 years old today, March 6, 2020, and the nation is in jubilant mood as this year's Independence Day parade is currently ongoing in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region.

The over 40,000- seater capacity stadium is filled to the brim with Ghanaians who are in jubilant moods for how far Ghana has come as a sovereign nation.

Excerpts from the 63rd Independence Day celebration of the West African nation have shown a rich display of Ghanaian culture as many people have been spotted clad in the popular Kente attire.

The annual parade which is currently ongoing has seen students, civil servants and security personnel don their best uniforms to march past His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of Ghana.

Also in attendance are Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the president of Trinida and Tobago, Keith Rowley, Speaker of Parliament Professor Mike Ocquaye, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and other state protocol.

The fanfare is however not complete if the various security personnel do not engage in their usual morale or 'jama' session.

A video sighted by YEN.com.gh has shown morale or jama sessions from security personnel and masqueraders who are present at the Baba Yara stadium where the event is taking place.

The masqueraders took the lead in the morale session and were soon joined by the security forces who showed the masqueraders their smoothness level.

The atmosphere erupted with singing and loud chants as the morale boys and girls went head-to-head in the jama session in the bid to be seen as the loudest.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that popular radio presenter Captain Smart had been captured in a photo that has stirred debate among Ghanaians.

The photo showed the radio show host carrying a bag of cement on his head and reports following the photo indicate that he was on his way to contribute it for the construction of Ghana's National Cathedral.

He was pictured with the cement bag on his head and was surrounded by some colleagues, clergymen and members of the media.

One man was seen holding the hand of Captain Smart and it appears he was congratulating the radio broadcaster for showing massive support to Akufo-Addo's cathedral project.
