Miami is a coastal city located in southeastern Florida in the United States.

It is the third most populous metropolis and it is the seventh largest in America.

The city has the third-largest skyline in the U.S. with over 300 high-rises, 55 of which exceed 491 ft (150 m).

The city is a major centre and leader in finance, commerce, culture, arts, and international trade.

It is also the playground of the ultra-rich in America who either own their second or third homes there and vacation there from time to time.

Now, Ghana’s capital which is also a coastal city, Accra is being referred to as the Miami of Ghana.

This recently became a bid deal after a video of a fleet of supercars were seen on social media being driven by rich people in Accra.

This is coming as a lot of other people living in the city are not able to afford accommodation, food and housing.

Meanwhile, it is becoming the play ground of the rich.

It just reinforces the idea that there are indeed different versions of the Accra all of us are living in.

It is the lifestyle of the super rich that is giving Accra it’s new links to Miami.

Here’s how Accra is getting its new name;

Fast Cars and Money

As seen in the above video, Accra is becoming the place for super cool cars and the splashing of money. As the money and political centre in Ghana, Accra already attracts the rich and powerful. They are coming with their super-rich lifestyle and living out our dreams right in front of our lives.

December Turn Up

December in Accra has become a real thing in the past couple of years. The back to back parties, moving from one cool place to the other. The back to back concerts. Yes, but for COVID-19 there would be concerts and parties all year round, however, the December turn up in Accra is on an entirely different level when the family members land in Kotoka International Airport and many other foreign nationals also arrive to the city more often.
