Tens of thousands of people have poured into Ghana’s iconic Black Star Square of Independence to witness the maiden edition of the Black Star Line Festival.

The event – which took place in the heart of the Ghanaian capital Accra – was founded by Chicago-born Ghanaian Vic Mensa and featured a host A-list acts from both sides of the Atlantic in a bid to unite the country and its diaspora.

International stars, including multiple Grammy award winners Erykah Badu, T-Pain and Chance The Rapper, were joined by Ghanaian legends like Sarkodie, Manifest and The Asakaa Boys at a festival to mark the event, which has also seen a weeklong series of events and panels.
