Masao Meroe (58) first came to Ghana in the 1980s and immediately fell in love with that country. He was a young African American lawyer then. He still had to see a bit of the world; and he finally decided this was his home. He owns Sankofa Beach House, at Langma in Accra. It is a quite resort in one of Accra's most serene villages; and a favourite hide out for a number of superstars and business folk. @everydayafrica photo by Nana Kofi Acquah @africashowboy. #Ghana #AARP #50+ #Africa #everydayafrica #thisisafrica #accra #africashowboy

Ras Alge is 53 years old. He says he's been Rasta since he was 17. He lives a simple life in the coastal village of Langma with his 6 year old son Sete. I asked Ras Alge, what was his philosophy on life. He replied: "Love and Unity. That's what makes the world go round".

everydayafrica From the @invisibleborders roadtrip project. We are a group of 9 artists from Africa travelling from Lagos to Sarajevo within a period of 151 days. This is day 39 and we are in Bamako, Mali. This image made by @emekaokereke brings you a scene from the many intriguing juxtapositions of events within the everyday space. Enjoy! We equally use this opportunity to ask for your support. We have launched a new fundraiser in order to raise the money we need to take this epic road trip all the way to Sarajevo! Here is the link on indiegogo: http://igg.me/p/850733/x/886547. Thank you. #lagossarajevo #invisibleborders #everydayafrica #roadtrip #bamako #mali #africanartists 5d

I as a South African will always reach out here & make sure here is fine. Always clean in front of your own door first. Never want to be ungrateful but African have been standing for many moons & we will never fall. 4d
