Meta’s Facebook commercial shot in Ghana featuring skateboarders of the ‘Skate Nation Ghana’ has been nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for ‘Outstanding Commercial’ of 2022.

Created for Facebook to coincide with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which eventually took place in the summer of 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the film looks at the rise of skate culture in Ghana and features the country’s first-ever skate crew, Skate Nation Ghana.

The film tells the story of how the crew came together as shared by founders Joshua and Sandy. It highlights how through social media, they were able to show off their exploits to the wider world.
