Elsewhere in established jurisdictions, Angelina Nana Akua Oduro, the iconic Ghana model seen in the popular Akwaaba portrait would have been quite rich for a pose she did for the cameras 20 years ago.
However, that is not the story of the figure seen in a beautiful Kente cloth on the Akwaaba portrait which has travelled the world over and serves as a significant part of Ghana’s welcoming nature.
Almost 20 years since the photograph was taken, Angelina Nana Akua Oduro who turns 40 years in 2021 is yet to receive any recognition for the work despite how far and wide the material has travelled and pushed Ghana’s tourism.
With merchants making monies from the works, Angelina Nana Akua Oduro is yet to receive a dime or recognized by the government of Ghana.
In a new documentary put together by TV3 Ghana and sighted by www.nydjlive.com, Angelina Nana Akua Oduro tells it all as the photographer also talks about his woes and inability to register the work which has since become ‘public property.
Well, she has a wish and hopefully, the right authorities attend to her request.
Watch the documentary from below.
