Ghana: African Versions of American Musicians in African Attires

Please select a featured image for your post


If you are wondering why am posting this after the buzz has cooled off, good for you. It means you are on planet earth. Am doing this for those who live under a rock like my friend Phil.

I thought after Denny Ow’s internet sensation for a week or so, everyone would have already seen this artwork. I couldn’t be more wrong, seems some were overtaken by El Chapo’s recapture. lol

Phil saw some of these artwork on my laptop and by the look on his face I could tell he had no idea what this amazing art was all about.

I couldn’t be more happier to showcase this for the likes of him.

Ever imagined American A listers celebrities without the bling blings, the chains, the baggy clothes and Niki without her glamorous outfits? Even better, imagine the stars in African traditional attires.

Ghanaian fashion illustrator Denny Owusu-Ansah simply known as Denny Ow became an internet sensation when he released some photos on Instagram of hand painted American musicians clad in African attires.

The artist features the likes of Niki Minaj, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, P Diddy, Drake, Jay Z, Rihanna, Beyonce, Rick Ross and Meagan Good the actress.

Rihanna dressed in  Zulu and wait till you see Nicki Minaj.

It is no doubt that Denny is talented and creative.

Denny said he was having fun with the art work, but still kept the creativity in mind and the result is amazing. He even gave them native names to go with it.

Chris Brown as Chris Koffi SArpong Brown
Jay Z as Chief Shawn Ugonna Jay Z Carter
Puff Daddy as Sean Puffy Nana Antwi Combs
Nicki Minaj as Nicki Maame Akua Amponsah
Drake as Aubrey Drake Abdul-Salam Graham (PALMWINEPAPI)

    be actually one thing which I think I’d by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and very wide for me.
