Stylish Moment: Mrs. Busia By James Barnor -1971



That this uber modish, highly stylized black and white photograph of elegant former first lady of Ghana, Mrs. Busia (she married Dr Kofi Abrefa Busia, the second prime minister of Ghana), and mother of actress Akosua Busia is taken by feted Ghanaian photographer James Barnor in 1971; -makes it even more fashionable and beautiful, -rendering it an incredible stylish moment in Ghanaian history..

Credited as, “Mrs. Busia (taken at their Odorkor residence) 1971” -we Ghanaians are just not used to seeing our first ladies looking stylish and its such a delight to know that this hasn’t always been the case…
