The two biggest cities in Ghana are Accra and Kumasi. Accra is the Regional Capital of Greater Accra Region and also the nation’s capital whiles Kumasi is the Regional capital of the Ashanti Region.
These two cities are known to be the hub of entertainment in Ghana. Previously, Kumasi was the city with the best of musicians but it has now been taken over by Accra due to the mixture of Ghanaians from all part of the country who have moved there to make ends meet.
