Nigerian afrobeats sensation and founder & leader of ZANKU Records, Zlatan, has shared a photo of himself detailing a tattoo of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah PC; a former Ghanaian politician and revolutionary on his chest.
Though reasons behind scribbling a Ghanaian personality on his body as a Nigerian is yet to be made known for the public’s consumption, it is believed, the musician, upon thorough research, got inspired by the history, legacies of freedom, achievements in music and values that late first Prime Minister and President of Ghana believed in.
An influential advocate of pan-Africanism, Nkrumah was a founding member of the Organisation of African Unity and winner of the Lenin Peace Prize in 1962. He opened doors that chartered new paths and contributed to the success of African music today. From Highlife, the Afrobeats of Fela’s time down to this era. Ghana, and the African continent owe a lot to Nkrumah’s vision & love for music.
