SCENE & NOTED

Models, Artists, Products & Services We Consider Worth Your Time
One of the pre-eminent designers on the African continent is Aisha Obuobi, the Creative Director behind the Accra-based label, Christie Brown.  Designed for the “modern woman who enjoys a taste of Africa”, Christie Brown pays homage to traditional West African fabrics in silhouettes that exude global sophistication and ingenuity.  Founded in 2008, the label has quickly become a local and international favorite offering a wide range of apparel and accessories.  With a new store in the neighborhood of Osu, Christie Brown is a must stop and shop for anyone who loves fashion.  Make sure to pick up one of her signature necklaces!

No outfit is complete without the right accessories and kua has emerged as one of the top handbag and jewelry brands in Accra poised to have global impact.  With fans such as Nicole Ari Parker Kodjoe toting her must-have handbags, founder and Creative Director, Ruby Buah lives by the brand’s philosophy of “Keeping Us Authentic”.  All handbags are made in Ghana using traditional West African fabrics and materials.  The brand celebrates modernity and embraces its African heritage through vibrant and sublime pieces including a stunning agate stone bracelet featuring the Adinkra symbol gye nyame.  As you enter the kua store in the Labone neighborhood in Accra, you are met with a wall of beautiful clutches and jewelry.  In fact, a dinner in Fort Green would not be complete without a dazzling kua clutch and a kua leaf necklace is perfect for a night out at the Accra National Theater.

Who doesn’t love the combination of amazing music, delicious food and thirst-quenching drinks? The Republic Bar and Grill located in the Accra neighborhood of Osu, delivers an outstanding entertainment and dining experience to everyone who walks through its doors.  From the black and white photos of African icons like Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela and Fela Kuti to the super yummy cocktails made using locally-distilled liquor, co-owners and brothers, Roger Owusu-Ansah and Kofi Owusu-Ansah  have created a bar that celebrates the history and culture of Africa.  Since its inception, The Republic has developed a loyal following due to its incredible calendar of events and its emphasis on afrobeats and traditional Ghanaian hi-life music.  A Friday night in Accra would not be complete without a visit to The Republic and while there it is absolutely mandatory to try the popular Terrible Kokroko drink, a mouthwatering mix of ice, spirit shot, hibiscus, lime, mint and brown sugar—yum yum!

OBY Live @ The Republic
Nestled in the bustling neighborhood of Osu is the fashion oasis that is Brown Sugar GH.  Owned by former Brooklyn native, Chiedza Makonnen, Brown Sugar offers a range of chic and stylish options in an environment with an authentic Brooklyn vibe.   The boutique offers a variety of international brands, including a lot of Brooklyn-based brands, but Chiedza’s own label, Afrodesiac Worldwide is the shining star. The Afrodesiac Worldwide line features beautiful clothing and gorgeous clutches, all made in Ghana using traditional West African fabrics.  The Afrodesiac Worldwide label also includes exquisite jewelry, again all made in Ghana and using materials sourced from the African continent. In addition to the clothing, Brown Sugar GH has a well-curated book and magazine selection including such essential items as the Vogue Italia All Black model issue and New African Fashion by Helen Jennings.  This boutique truly provides its style savvy consumer everything that she needs, but the best thing about Brown Sugar is that a portion of the proceeds help to provide education and computer literacy skills to girls and women in Ghana through Chiedza’s NGO, Revolutionary Underground.  What a perfect reason to shop!

BROOKLYN FOODIE

Have A Lady?...  Take Her Out!
THERE'S JAMAICA IN ACCRA

Are you a Brooklyn foodie? Tell us all about it
For anyone that loves Jamaican food, you know that flavor is essential.  In fact, in a city with so many exceptional restaurants, flavor and authenticity make Island Spice unique.  Island Spice is the only authentic Jamaican restaurant in Accra and one taste of their famed Ackee and Saltfish will make you swear you are in Kingston.  Owned and operated by Kari Henry, a Jamaican-Canadian who moved to Ghana in 2006, Island Spice brings the savory, rub your tummy goodness of Jamaican cuisine to Accra.  Using locally-sourced ingredients, everything is made in-house, including their amazing homemade Jerk sauce. You can also enjoy fresh homemade juices like ginger beer, carrot juice and the famous Jamaican Sorrel.  When temperatures average 80°F, nothing is more refreshing than a cool ginger beer with some tasty jerk chicken.
