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?
This is one of my many feeble attempts at poetry. I call this poem “Hood Girl” and I dedicate it to all the Girls who don’t see or allow themselves to be used as sexual objects for Men to use and dump.
Hood girl, Hood girl
Walking past me
With this short skirt just above her knees
I have something to tell you
So stand there and listen to me please
Earlier this week, my eyes came across a news article on the internet which reports that only 28% of the 2014 Ghanaian Wassce Candidates meet the entry requirements for tertiary institutions. That means over 70% did not meet the entry requirements and therefore if bribery & corruption does not rear its ugly head at those tertiary institutions, they will have to sit at home for another year and write the Nov/Dec examinations.
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 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?
#1 Firstly, I will go to church, give 10% of my winnings as tithe, and then, offer unto God through the church, a Thanksgiving offering. In All Things, I Have To Give Thanks Unto God.
I dedicate this post to my dear Facebook friends, twitter followers and blog readers who have found Love. There are so many different kinds of love. Love for your family, love for your pets, love for your friends and even love for the Kooko seller that makes your kooko every morning.
We experience it, but we may not always appreciate all the love in our daily lives, especially when we find ourselves alone, seeking that one love, the ROMANTIC Love.
Personally, I don’t care if you judge me after reading this post. The truth is, I felt like writing on a sensitive social topic and then, the issue of pornography came to mind. What you need to understand is this; that I am a normal, hyperactive boy like you, but there are times when you need to write on sensitive topics, no matter how uncomfortable it looks, so other people will learn from it. Nobody is perfect, we all need Grace.
