Kumasi High School boys perform candle night on school grounds to face their upcoming West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
In a video shared with yebekagh.com, a group of students from the renowned institution were observed performing a fire dance.
Watch the video below.
According to interaction with some students, this is not a ritual affiliated to any tradition.
“It is something we do to ease ourselves of the stress and nervousness for our final examinations.
We feel united when we perform the Candle Night.”
Although the name implies “Candle Night”, the fire is not actually from a candle but rather, fire set in a stack of woods.
