. The website is dedicated to making it easy for Ghanaians and also people from the diaspora to find content from and about Ghana, which includes local businesses, classifieds and entertainment. was started in late 2010 by Robert Atuahene, who was frustrated with the dearth of information about local Ghanaian businesses on the web after an unsuccessful search over the internet
for suitable wedding photographers for his wedding. It all began with showcasing Ghanaian businesses and classifieds on the internet making it easy for people to find and conduct business using the internet.
Today, has grown into a full blown search portal. A search on gKrom for photographers in Ghana brings up several photographers across the country. Due to the plethora of photographers that can be found on, it is now easier than ever for people searching for a wedding photographer to find one who fits their budget. Same goes for a search for real estate, contractors, attorneys, accountants, gyms, massage, event planners etc…

Robert Atuahene (the founder of hinted that: “Our first step has been to create a clean, user friendly search interface with a Ghanaian touch that allows our users to find local businesses, jobs, breaking news, cars, electronics and other items for sale.

In an effort to take Ghana’s showbiz to a much higher level, makes it easy to find Information about your favorite Ghanaian musicians and listen to their hot tracks as well as the latest breaking news and general information about the movers and shakers in Ghana.
