Take a listen to Ghana’s National Anthem under Kwame Nkrumah before it was changed

A video said to contain the first Ghana National Anthem during the Nkrumah administration has surfaced via virtual social media.

The video shared by X client, @KyeiMeshack, highlights a matured man who guarantees the public song of praise at present being sung has been adjusted following Nkrumah's defeat in 1996.

"Then, at that point, when Nkrumah was ousted, they changed to God favor our country, Ghana. Ghana had a public hymn under Nkrumah however it has changed at this point. We altered it. For what reason did we transform it," he said.

As indicated by him, the real song of praise sang:

“Lift high the flag of Ghana.

The day starts shining in the sky

Bright with the souls of our fathers for whose lives we live and die

Red, for the blood of the heroes in the fight.

Green for the fruitful forms of our birthright

And linked with this is the shining gold band, which marks the richness of our fatherland.”

Presently, the Ghana Public Song of devotion sings:

God bless our homeland Ghana,

And make our nation great and strong,

Bold to defend for ever,

The cause of Freedom and of Right.

Fill our hearts with true humility

Make us cherish fearless honesty,

And help us to resist oppressor’s rule

With all our will and might for evermore.
