James Barnor, who is referred to as Nkrumah’s photographer, is one of Ghana’s first photographers to shoot in colour. Through photography, he documented Ghana’s transition from colonial rule to a Republic.

James Barnor turned 90 on June 6 and Joshua Kissi feels Mr Banor should be well celebrated for his exploits for the country.

“We don’t celebrate our legends until they’re gone,” Joshua Kissi said in another tweet.

We think Joshua Kissi has raised a very strong point that we need to follow up as a country. Our legends need to be celebrated well.

We hope our leaders will do well to make sure these legends we have are properly celebrated while they are alive.
