Ghana as a country has recently become the best and safest destination for shooting music videos for top Nigerian artistes.
It has been noted that since the coronavirus pandemic, most Nigerian artistes have been spending a lot of time at home. Due to travel restrictions, it must be tasking to trvel across global boarders.
Recently, it has been reported that, Burna Boy and Davido seem to have had a disagreement in a famous pub within the city. Wizkid was also seen partying with his R2Bees brothers in another part of town.
Burna Boy was the first to release a single after winning the Grammys, then followed by Starboy Wizkid. Mr.Eazi is the latest trending artiste highliting Nigerian artists spending a generous amount of time in neighbouring West Africa country, Ghana.
Today we explore locations in Ghana where Burna Boy, Wizkid and Mr. Eazi shot their latest projects.

The video proceeds to a scene exploring the William Fort, the Cape Coast Chapel Square; and rolls out a wide-angle view of the Cape Coast Town which is famously known for its story buildings. Ghana’s famous Masquerade group and Ankos are also featured in the video.
The Don goes heavy on promoting the West African Country, capturing scenes from Elmina Castle Bridge and the Tsenku Waterfalls located near Dodowa in the Greater Accra Region. Tsenku is not a well known waterfall in Ghana, but apparently it broods tilapia fishes.
