Why are the majority of Ghana YouTubers female?
The majority of Ghana YouTubers are female as many are fashion bloggers or some are just first-timers trying to promote and grow a channel. We have been through quite a few of these channels and videos and thought it would be nice if we could rank or list the ones that could be worth watching.
Now we are not saying that the rest of the YouTube videos and channels are not good, but once you have seen several videos about visiting Bloom Bar in Accra and catching a view from the top of Skybar 25 then a car ride through the streets of Accra, there is not much else that can be said. These videos are good if you want to listen to some cool Afro beats tracks and want to get a whistle stop tour of someones 10 days in Ghana.
We have been through a lot of Ghana YouTube videos and we recommend the following videos as a good insight into the diversity of Ghana.

10 of the best trending Ghana YouTubers and vloggers
Akua Dimples is another of our favourites as another Ghanaian who just uses video to show what life is like in Ghana. Like anywhere else she takes us to the market and does her shopping and even gives tips on how to make your Cedi go far. There is no need for gloss she is real, from going to the market in Kejetia Kumasi to just talking to everyday people she meets.
Jasmine has made the move to Ghana permanently and her YouTube channel gives a real look at how it is like managing the transition back to Ghana. Follow her on her travels as she tries to get the most from her Cedi. What we like about Jasmine is that she like others is not shy to just share what she is doing. The way she films her videos it makes you feel that you are standing right by her side. What we also like is her voice-overs in the videos which give you a nice perspective.
Vanassa is a workaholic on what sometimes seems like a one-woman agenda to document the whole of Ghana. hailing from Scotland and of mixed heritage Vanassa Kanbi is doing really well we like her approach her light Scottish twang adds another coat of sugar on her style and she is not consumed by all the show and glitz. Again very real and honest presenter. Vanessa has over 130 videos just on Ghana. Currently, she is showcasing people and homes
Jubril Agoro and his video production company Passport heavy really made us sit up and look at their videos on Ghana. The videos were made before the Year of Return in 2019, the editoring is slick and the use of drones for some shots was breath-taking. I feel that he has definitely set a trend for reporting but this is their general professional style. We like the way Jubril was able to go into Ghana and really pull out some unsung heros and places. He only has a few videos on Ghana but we included him just for his style
Stella Shanelly is funny and very much that real Youtuber who is from Ghana who does not mind falling over in front of the camera or falling into the water. She is always smiling and full of energy. We like how she actually puts the names of the roads and places on random roaming video. She can break into Twi at any time to speak to people and fully explains back to the camera. Sometimes watching Stella you may get nervous that when she is skipping if she is going to trip.
Ivy Prosper approach is more of a reportage style as she provides the roaming reporting style for YouTube channel. She is very informative with her style and is good at getting others to provide insights into what is going on. On her channel you are sure to learn about some very interesting people who have made their homes in Ghana and its not all about the champagne lifestyle it’s just every day from the art galleries and cool people.
Nana Ama McBrown aka McBrowns Kitchen
McBrowns Kitchen is from Ghanaian actress Felicity Ama Agyemang who uses her stage name Nana Ama McBrown. Once you get past all the product plugs her cooking show which features celebrities and who is who in Ghana is a really nice approach to interviewing people and finding out more about the people. We like her as she is just too funny her comedic style really keeps you captivated.
Wodemaya is a Young Freelance Ghanaian Vlogger who is on a mission to change the African negative narratives by promoting all the 55 African countries in a positive way to the world hence AFRICA TO THE WORLD! Feel Free to join this awesome family on Youtube.
