Andrea Owusu is also known as Efia Odo was a U.S based assistant nurse who relocated to Ghana. She was born on the 18th of July 1993 and hails from Juaben in the Ashanti region of Ghana. She is currently pursuing her passion in acting. She has played a number of roles in Ghanaian movies such as ‘heels and sneakers’. Efia Odo was also a radio host on Okay fm and T.V presenter on Kwese T.V.
She is also one of the strongest advocates for the current #FixTheCountry movement that is challenging politicians to stop exploiting Ghana and selling the country of to foreign nations.
The massive movement has grown so quickly and has seen 1000s of people voice their demands for the sitting president Nana Akufo-Addo to stop the slick talk and fix the country.
The movement also received some backlash from the NPP party of Nana Akufo-Addo telling Ghanaians they should fix themselves instead. A mindless reply that was embraced by a number of citizens challenging the citizens to fix themselves in order to resolve social problems.
Efia Odo is one of many celebrities, including Yvonne Nelson, DKB, and others who have taken the celebrity voices and applied it to the movement, and their bravery is yielding results.
Despite America and Europe allowing protests to proceed during strict COVID lock downs, the Ghanaian president Nana Akufo-Addo took the opportunity to use COVID as an excuse to shut down the organized protest for the growing #FixTheCountryMovement, even though there are very limited COVID restrictions in Ghana with markets packed like Sardine.
Despite the governments dictatorship approach to the protest, the celebrities and many others have taken their protest to social media to push for a better Ghana. Specifically in the areas of schools, sanitation, roads, and more.

Better sanitation system would make Ghana look as good and clean as ever. We can hire prisoners to even clean the gutters whereas they are making money while they are in prison. #fixthecountry

UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
