Updated: 19 January 2017
Instagram has become a portal through which we see the world and explore its dimensions through the eyes of others. There are many users of Instagram in Accra, Ghana, whose posts easily stand out with interesting and exciting content featuring fashion, style, food, music and design. Below are the Accra-based Instagrammers you need to have on your feed.

Annertey | @annertey

Graphic designer and illustrator Annertey’s Instagram is one of those pages you wish was yours because of his clean, minimal gridded aesthetic. Exhibiting the traits of a true design expert, he strays from the habit of posting random images like you may see on other accounts. Instead, he ensures many of his images share some connection, be it in the color composition or the thematic undertones.

Fotombo | @fotombo

Spoken word artist Mutombo Da Poet takes iPhone photography to new horizons on this feed. On his page, you will get to engage with Accra and Ghana in a way you may not be able to in reality due to the place’s fast-paced nature. Fotombo steals these snippets in time with his phone lens, allowing his audience to see moments they are likely to miss.

Steloo is the kind of person to stand out in any place or crowd. His personal style, which is reminiscent of the sapeurs of Congo, mixed with the free-flowing creative energies of Accra makes him a presence to behold. Whether he’s Djing at a club or simply strolling down the street, Steloo magnetizes your attention on his Instagram account with images of his lifestyle. His Instagram is also a place where you can find inspiration for your own street style.

Theophilus Mensah | @ofoli_kwei

Basketball is nowhere near football in terms of popularity or development in Ghana but photographer Theophilus Mensah has fallen in love with the game. Out of this affinity, he displays some of the interesting scenes around shooting hoops in Ghana. These range from tournaments to training sessions and abandoned courts. His Instagram page is proof that beauty exists in places we do not expect.

I have a lot to be thankful for. I pray we all soar higher this year. • #HappyNewYear #GhanaBasketball
