EXPERIENCE GHANA WITH WODE MAYA
February 1st – February 8th, 2022
Hello my friends, I go by the name Wode Maya, the man with a mission to promote African stories in a positive light. My main objective is to change the negative stereotypes about Africa and to get both African’s and others to travel, live and invest in Africa. Our main aim is to showcase all the 55 countries in the continent of Africa.
The Maya Experience which I have created is to give you a chance to explore Africa with myself and my friends. I am launching this experience with the aim of expanding across Africa and I am starting this journey with my home country Ghana.
Join me for the Maya Experience, a week long experience aimed at deepening your love for Africa through the cultural, economic and historical activities. Don’t just watch, live the African experience.
