Kwame Nkrumah was born Francis Nwia-Kofi on 21st September, 1909 to a gold smith father and retail trade mother in Nkroful now in the Western Region of Ghana. He was baptised a Catholic and like most of the children of his time, the missionary schoold offered one of the surest ways of getting primary education. He attended the Roman Catholic elementary school at Half Assini. He later went to Achimota College in the 1930s from where he became a teacher teaching mostly in the Catholic schools at Elmina and Axim. Continue reading
Last week, I read somewhere that Ghana’s BET Award winner, Sarkodie is going to release an album called “Mary” this year and I am sitting here like “Man, if Sarkodie does not start coming up with some new rap lyrics, then I don’t know. It’s like every time I turn on the radio or hear a Sarkodie song at a random place, it sounds like Sark is recycling his same old rhymes. Continue reading
Africa is a very unique continent with unique people. And I find it extremely interesting that no matter where African children grow up, they are pretty much raised up the same way. Most African parents raise their kids to survive the harsh conditions of life. We have an identity and below is an identity, I identify with. In an African home:
1. Your parents will seldom admit they are wrong. And if they do, you will be too stunned to actually believe it. Like mummy, did you just say you found your money and I am actually innocent of your accusations?
Petroleum products have become a major part of our everyday lives as humans. In as much as it is, it has become a necessity in our lives, coupled with its sky rocketing prices which tends to burden major economies all around the world hence government subsidies.
Because of my Ga jokes and jests on Social Media (most of those jokes are directed at Ga Girls though) my friends have resulted to calling me a tribalist based on my beliefs and my continued jesting about the Ga People Of Ghana. At first, I used to get offended when people inboxed me on Facebook, referring to me as tribalist, but frankly now I can not be bothered, because I know I am not a tribalist in the sense that I do not bring other tribes down. I jest about my own tribe for fun and I have no regrets whatsoever about that. I would not intentionally ridicule my own tribe on Social Media. For what?
Teenagers these days have their own language. They have their own terms in some words which we don’t know yet. We might get confused with the meanings of those words.
So I made a little research and if you want to be a hipster too, check out these 10 slang words, teenagers are using these days:
The World Cup is over but one thing which is still lingering is the issue about Becca sleeping with some Ghanaian footballers in camp during the tournament. And of course, the hypocritical ones amongst us (especially the girls) were very quick to call her a slut, an ashawo and all manners of names on social media. Becca has since issued a public statement about the issue, denying the said story and has threatened legal action against the people allegedly smearing her name.
But lets imagine for some seconds that, those allegations were indeed true. What if its true? What if Becca actually slept with those people during the World Cup? Continue reading
The problem with young Ghanaian teenagers today is that they are too soft. Those days, (I mean in the 1990s and early 2000s) young people like myself were tough. We were strong and hard as nails. My generation had the wild, strict parents, big mango climbable trees and the very wicked Primary and JHS teachers.
I am going to have fun with this post because I have often thought about what I would buy if I won the lottery or made a huge amount of money from playing roulette in a casino. I am allowed to dream right?
What if? What if I clocked like $100,000- $500,000? or maybe even a $1,000,000?
