About the host city

Stretching along the Ghanaian Atlantic Coast and extending North into Ghana's interior, Accra is the capital city of Ghana. As of 2012, it has an estimated population of over 4 billion, making it the eleventh largest metropolitan in Africa. The city has buildings varying from 19th century Victorian architecture to modern day skyscrapers and apartment blocks. Although the official language is English, Ga, Twi, Hansa and Ewe are widely spoken by the local people. Accra served as the capital of the British Gold Coast from 1877 to 1957 and was originally built around a port. It boasts of both economic activities like manufacture of lumber, textiles as well as recreational activities like nightclubs.
