Been making major moves so early in the year that I might just have to retire for the rest of 2018 to let the rest of the competition catch up. Of course that’s not our way here, and we’ll be keeping feet on necks for the rest of the year.

In the meantime though, some straight dope from the underground on how to navigate places where you can actually live life to it’s fullest.

Starting with Accra, Ghana.

Osu is the main spot for nightlife, and you’ll find a mix of expats, locals, and other hangers-on out on the town regardless of day or night.

A quick run down of how to make the right moves if you find yourself here:

Hit the Root Apartments and Hotel for a day drink and a good view. The pool area up top opens in the late afternoon. You’ll want to chop it up for a bit in the main restaurant and then make your moves upstairs once things get popping. Small place, but the view is great and you’ll find plenty of people to chat up and do your thing.

Ghana is ganja friendly, so make sure to cop some of that. Just ask around and you can score big for the low.

Chill out in the main area, spark a spliff, make conversation, watch the sunset and wait for the night to turn.

The Shisha Lounge in Osu is a good spot to post up for the dinner time and order some tabac along with your wood-fire pizza. If you are still dry at this point, hit the hotel next door to get whatever you need. Don’t be surprised if you see some cats sparking up in the back area. Like I said, ganja friendly. Keep it to the back cause you don’t want any trouble from the 12, but really it’s a matter of being smart and figuring out who to talk to.

If you’re done with those moves, you can hit Bloom Bar which is a quick jaunt by taxi or foot. Another good rooftop locale where once again you can blaze up without issue.

For nightlife, Firefly will serve you well and keep you occupied until early in the morning with some fly trees and flyer chicks. Notable mention goes to Tea Bar and Blue House. 

In Accra there are a lot of working girls especially in Osu because it’s expat Central and girls can make good money there. I was only there for a few days but was running a gambit about my friend in the states who is a working girl but how I like to actually know a chick. Just be chill have some Cali swag mixed with Chocolate City street style and you can clean up without dropping cash.

The girls of Ghana are fine as hell (though there are some other locales in West Africa that I will be dropping soon enough with even better). You’ve got your locals, and also plenty of visitors from the States and England. You’ve got your diaspora chicks who are coming back to get a taste of the homeland. English is all around though the local ones also speak mostly Twi so learn up on some phrases and get an easy in.

Of course melanin is the name of the game, and you’ve got to be down with that. Though there were some fly Arab expats and some white chicks to be had on the down low, no one is trying to mess with that when you’ve got fine sistas turning heads at every corner. Get in your shades and enjoy.

I played the hand laid out above and cleaned up, so bring the heat and you’ll do just fine.
