A young boy meeting Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first president, had Ghanaian social media users fooled over the weekend, when information emerged that the boy was President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo.
The picture was first shared by Sekou Nkrumah, the last born of Kwame Nkrumah, who insisted that the boy was a young Akufo-Addo
The picture immediately went viral, with thousands of people sharing it on Facebook and Twitter.
But it has now emerged that Sekou Nkrumah lied and that boy was not Akufo-Addo.
Rather, it was a young American that Nkrumah met when he travelled to North Carolina in the US in 1960.
