Abedi Pele (footballer)
Former Ghanaian footballer Abedi Pele found success in the European clubs – especially in the French league.
Believed to be one of the greatest Ghanaian footballers of all times, he won numerous awards for his outstanding career in football.

Black soap is made throughout West Africa but is particularly popular in Ghana. It is said to detoxify and brighten skin and help to combat both eczema and acne.
Natural ingredients such as plantain leaves, cocoa pods, and palm tree leaves are left out in the sun to dry out and then burnt to make ash. This ash is then mixed with other ingredients to produce black soap, which is used locally and exported around the world.
