Ghana is definitely a trending location and a cool place to visit and if you have never been to West Africa before it is recommended as the first place you should stop off at before you even venture any further.
Owing to the popularity of Ghana and Accra the capital if you search on YouTube you are sure to be bombarded and at times it can be overwhelming the number of YouTubers posting videos. Many talking about their first time in Ghana experiences with a lot of focus on the party scene.
Why are the majority of Ghana You Tubers 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 are not good but how many times can we all look at the Bloom bar and views of Skybar 25 and the car ride through the streets of Accra. So we have been through a lot of Ghana YouTube videos you are free to search YouTube but we recommend the following videos as a good insight into the diversity of Ghana.
Why we choose these 10 Ghana YouTubers?
We like the way some of these Ghana YouTubers have spent time with the editing and graphics. Some are clearly going to go far in this market. What we like most about some of their videos is that you get a chance to learn something new or get an insight you never knew about Ghana.
So after hours of watching we have come up with what we consider to the list of YouTuber’s and their channels that you may find interesting.
If you click on the You Tubers image you should link to one of the locations they reviewed or visited. If you have any recommendation of other Ghana YouTubers you feel should make our list please let us know.
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.

The Acheampong Family
The Acheampong Family, a young modern family from the Netherlands who decided it was time to make a change and move back to our ” fatherland” Ghana. Their videos are real and really good as you really just get a chance to see people living real.
Marintia Goto Williams
Marintia makes videos she is of mixed heritage and uses her time in Ghana to show the diversity of the country with her eye on Ghana. Her videos are very personal to her where she likes to have a direct connection with the viewers. What you get is a real feel for what it is like to just live a normal life in Ghana.
