About the games, Edem said...
"It’s difficult to put the experience into words. Walking onto the field of play with the Ghana flag aloft was a spine tingling moment, one that I will never forget. Being able to compete at The Games was an unbelievably challenging and humbling experience. Performing under the Ghanaian flag made it feel extra special"
