I don’t think I could even tell you how happy it made me to find out that Jenny and Kiki are Ghanians, you just don’t see a lot of Ghanians in western cartoons so this was really pleasing.
Love these ladies!!!
Ghana we made it🙌
what a terrible mistake by google though. no respect for Cameroon lol.
Google is so ignorant but Ghana benefits lmao
They changed it now so it’s okay, right?!
Happy Independence Day to Ghana
57 years today, six brave men led by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah spearheaded the transition of Ghana from a long era of colonialism to becoming the first Independent nation in sub-Sahara Africa
We remember their vision and commitment and wish all Ghanaians a Happy Independence Day
Happy Independence day Ghana! I love you forever my motherland.
God bless Ghana and all Ghanaians out there

The film will document their journey of discovery, which includes their very first trip to Israel.
The filmmakers successfully raised close to $16,000 via Kickstarter last year, which went into launching production of the film, which I’m now told is ongoing currently, and will likely continue into early 2014 when the above initial trip to Israel will happen.
