Once every year in July the chiefs and people of Nungua celebrate the Kplejoo festival – a forerunner to the annual Homowo festival celebrated by other Ga lineages in the Greater Accra Region.
It is a song- and drum-based celebration which sees the people of the land sing special songs and perform one special activity called “Obeneshimo” which signifies the journey of the Ga people from Israel to their present settlements.
Over the years, the culturally and historically rich festival has been celebrated somewhat on the quiet, but all that is about to change as the Chiefs and people of Nungua gear up to make Kplejoo a National Celebration with immense tourism and creative arts benefits starting July 2019!
