Jameson Connects Accra: Ghana’s Independence Day celebrations
Ghana’s Independence Day marks the celebration of a peaceful West African nation and reflects on the country’s many accomplishments over the years. On March 6 each year, Ghanaians from all over the world get together to commemorate the country’s rich Gold Coast heritage. Ghanaians also honour a culture that unites its people through diverse yet cohesive customs. The Jameson brand, sole distributors of Jameson whiskey are defined by goodwill, unity, diversity, taste, and style. This year, they will host a special independence day celebration at the Untamed Empire venue on the Spintex Road on Sunday, March 6, 2022.
