We witness her manoeuvre life in the African city of Accra, Ghana, where race and colourism have significant colonial roots and neo-colonial implications. Ebaner’s life and the lives of her clients intertwine as they explore the new age of the African woman, her independence and her challenges in a patriarchal society. StarTimes will use the six episode TV series to entertain its cherished subscribers during the festive season. The presence of top Hollywood actors and actresses with Ghana’s finest and veteran acts gives the movie a lot to desire. https://ameyawdebrah.com/watch-vanessa-a-williams-leon-robinson-talk-about-working-with-leila-djansi-in-ghana/]]>
