PEOPLE OF THE SAVANNAH

The Savannah zone of Ghana, is made up of three regions, Upper east, Upper west and the Northern region. The three regions usually referred to as the “North” singularly, is the most drought affected areas of Ghana, however, during the rainy seasons, it blossoms in beautiful greenery.
The Savannah zone of Ghana is known for its
beautiful heritage, traditions and culture, its great local dishes, drinks,
fruits and very friendly hardworking natives. It is also one of Ghana’s highest
recording agricultural zones and suppliers of a lot of raw materials/crops both
for consumption and export.

Usually reported as the poorest regions of Ghana,
with a high level of illiteracy, however, most people do not look beyond this
possible truths when thinking about the “North”, I however, as a proud
of the land, have taken it upon myself to showcase the Savannah in a simple yet
beautiful and interesting limelight, unfolding stories of our ways of living
above the widespread negative notion of “poverty, illiteracy and violence”.

I intend to broadcast the Savannah and show the world our beautiful arts, culture, foods, amazing people and great tourist attractions.
