Ghana's millennial avant-garde
Young artists in Ghana's capital have evolved a new style that is turning heads and challenging accepted notions of African fashion. Their passions span fine art, graphic design, music and, above all, clothes that attract notice in a city where most men wear conservative Western suits or, on special occasions, shirts made from traditional fabrics. "I like the fact that it is creating drama in the minds of the people," DJ Evans Mireku Kissi said. The group publishes selfies on social media, projecting their style to an audience far beyond Accra.
