Accra TV series compared to Sex in the City

A TV series compared to Sex in the City, An African City takes place in Accra, Ghana. Beginning in 2014, five women friends share the common experience of having lived abroad and returning home to face power outages, fuel shortages, family supervision and the focus on getting married, date rape, natural hair, and local fashion designers. They struggle to create their identity in a traditional culture, evoking many reactions on social media such as GhanaWeb.
