The Black Stars joined the rest of the west African country in celebrating their liberation from the British colony

Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Patey, Enyimba goalkeeper Fatau Dauda, Swansea City forward Andre Ayew, and Deportivo Alaves’ Mubarak Wakaso have taken to social media to celebrate Ghana’s 61st Independence Day anniversary.

The west African country became an independent state on March 6, 1957, when Britain relinquished its control over the Gold Coast and Ashanti, the Northern Territories Protectorate, and British Togoland, thus, becoming the first west African country and the first black African nation to gain its independence from colonial rule.


God bless our homeland Ghana. 🇬🇭 Happy Independence Day to every Ghanaian all over the world. 🙏🙏💪
