It says, On the 6th of March 1957 at 12am Kwame Nkrumah declared Ghana’s establishment and autonomy. On July 1st 1960, following the Ghanaian Constitutional Referendum and Ghanaian presidential election, as the First president of Ghana, Nkrumah declared Ghana as a republic. 🇬🇭 The flag of Ghana consisting of the colours red, gold, green and a Black Star became the new flag in 1957 when Gold Coast gained its name, Ghana. It was designed by Theodosia Salome Okoh; the Red represents the blood that was shed towards independence, the gold represents the industrial minerals wealth of Ghana, the green symbolises the rich grasslands of Ghana, and the Black Star is the symbol of the Ghanaian people and African emancipation.

I’m not Ghanaian but I have a strong affinity with West Africa, I’m looking forward to properly tracing my roots, origins and getting back, no matter the price.

Yagga Yow!

Couple people have been hitting me on my personal to check if I’m okay cos I haven’t been on social media for a couple months. I appreciate the love, thank you.

It’s nothing macabre, I’m f****** great, I just took a deliberate break from socials; not to be cool, Illusive, mysterious or for attention but to focus on myself, work, my family and friends. I felt like socials (Insta especially) was taking up a lot of time, checking it became a reflex, I’d be picking up the phone every 5 mins to check it for no reason, I didn’t like that, so I went on a lil detox from it and a few other things certain foods, habits etc. (I watched the latest J.Cole interview with Angie Martinez last night which gave an interesting perspective on it all actually, check it out.) Anyway, I say that to say this, man is DEYA!!!! I’ve spent the last 3 months working in Vancouver on @SalvationCBS & it has been sick!! Dope cast, writers and crew. Can’t wait for you all to see it.

They’ve just announced... SEASON TWO OF ‘SALVATION’ LAUNCHES MONDAY, JUNE 25th at 9pm ON @CBSTV

I hope you’re all blessed. I’ve missed ya.

Peace, love and light to you all.

P.s I’ll try to get back to the DMs when I can. 👊🏾❤️

“From ducking undercovers and mixtape covers, to cover models and GQ covers.” Strong, Beautiful and Iconic. 🖤

Making GQ look cooler.

The Rise. Salute King.

The Culture.

UK to the World.

After months of deliberation, I am pleased to announce and confirm I’ve accepted a position in the DSS (Dark Skinned Society), taking on the role “Director of Development, Heritage and Conservation”. I will be taking this role very seriously. This is the moment “Bucking Ell” and I made it official, effective immediately. ⬅️ Swipe to see @AshleyBelalChin congratulating me on this momentous occasion.

I just wanna thank my dad for providing enough melanin to make this possible, just, my mum nearly made me ineligible. 😂😩😂😩😂😩😂 (We’re just having a lil fun, one people, no colorism ✊🏾✊🏽✊✊🏻✊🏼) -

Nah in all seriousness Buck, Kaluuya and Leitita organised a screening for a few local community groups that may not have been able to see “Black Panther” Akala & I just went along to give some love, support and energy to the moment. Aspire to inspire. ✊🏾🖤👊🏾

“What’s better than one BRIT Award? TWO!!” Everything and anything is possible with belief and hard work.

A few years ago man featured on the BRITS stage only vibesing, laws of attraction, hard work and prayers would make it that 3 years later man does his own memorable performance and picks up two awards.

Salute King.

Be Inspired. -

Now that Stormzy has triumphantly kicked down the door I pray long may it continue for the scene and for the culture but always remember they don’t validate us or make us cool, we validate them and make them cool. From the Endz to the world. ✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻✊✊🏿

Wozza vibe with my homie @MoranAtias. She acts so tough but she’s a sweetie really! ☺️♥️ 24 Alumni.

Legends Never Die.

Rest In Power Stormin.

Imagine Stormin and I got off to an awkward start in the beginning at some music venue somewhere back in the day, some real young testosterone fuelled bravado BS, then one day we were both at the same family party like “what you doing here!?🧐’ turned out our parents grew up together and were family friends, and then we were like ‘🤷🏾‍♂️😅😂’ instantly squashing whatever we had and were cool ever since. It was beautiful seeing him live his best life, living his passion for music, fighting to the end and looking after his family, that is the true measure of a man. I’m saddened to hear the news of his passing but we celebrate his life, legacy and the moments we’ve shared.

Rest in Power Shaun Lewis.
