A Jewel In The Streets, a new reality TV show is about to hit Ghana’s TV screens, with Ama K Abebrese as the host. It will open up with an overview of the realities faced by Ghana’s head porters, knows as ‘kayayei’.
In Accra alone there are thousands of young women in the ‘kayayei’ business, and like their male counterparts, many of these young girls in this trade came to Accra in search of greener pastures, only to be welcomed with the harsh conditions in the cities.
It will officially be launched on August 17 at the Alisa Hotel, North Ridge, Accra. As part of activities leading up to the launch will be a free health screening exercise at the Accra Tema Station from 8:00 a.m. till 4:00pm.
The show is proudly produced by the Marvelin House Limited.
