Pallbearers in Ghana Pay Respects to the Dead With Celebration – The Quint

Nana Otafrija Pall-bearing Service, led by Benjamin Aidoo, is trying to transform the traditional ways in which we mourn the dead. Instead of crying over the loss at a solemn burial service, these pallbearers are trying to celebrate the lives that these people led. Aidoo started pall bearing as a means to earn money and pay his high school fee but later got drawn towards it and devised his own creative ways to make people smile at their worst. Dressed in colourful clothes, the team comes and spreads a wave of celebration by singing and dancing and creating a joyful atmosphere. While the practice started as an experiment for Aidoo, it has really picked up since more and more people are concurring with Aidoo’s beliefs.
