While Canucks celebrated Canada Day, Ghana turns 54 years old on July 1, 2011. Luv FM’s twi platform, Nyhira FM collaborated with the Ghana Tourism Board, the Bosumtwi District Assembly and Platinum Consult to celebrate this auspicious day at one of Ghana’s most famous tourist attractions. Located approximately 30km south-east of Kumasi, Lake Bosumtwi is Ghana’s only natural lake and is considered a sacred site where dead souls come to bid farewell to the god Twi. From high noon till long after the sun set, the Lake Bosumtwi shore was alive with music, dancing, games and high spirits proudly celebrating the nation’s independence.
