Accra

27 Jul 2016

After witnessing how many talents were wasted in James Town, Accra’s oldest area, Slum due to lack of opportunity, artist Franklin Owusu, 38, known by his stage name Kali Process, created Ehehia (pronounced Ehenia), a dance group to empower the disadvantaged youth.
He created the group in 1999 and they were focusing on Cultural dance but inserted Hip Hop in 2011 when they started aiming global. Thanks to money collected locally from other members of the group, they are able to pay school fees, health care and even clothes for some dancers. Now, many of these young people are seen as role models in the local community and dream of taking the pride of their slum on international level through Hip Hop.
The video contains an interview with Franklin Owusu about why he started the group and his dream about it, an interview with two dancers and some shots from their live performance as well as social life in James Town.
