*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

I. YUTONG TROTRO GOSSIP

Massa we meet again

Eh! Old Chap how be oh

Tro-tro be like oven today

NDC take ship to Sunyani

I hear say TRACTORS too

I hear say Atta Mess win

Yes oh, JJ/Konadu lost

Atta Mess win big time

Eh! Na dis be true history

Massa, say it, ring it again

World Bank no vote for JJ

Na that be end of an era

Epoch contoured by tribalism

The memoir of the bastard

The memoir of the wayward

Na dat end Volta hegemony

Na dat end Awonoor’s dream

Eh Konadu get money paa

Yes, money for campaign

But no money for house

No money to build house

Dem de lie to Ghanaians

JJ be richest Ghanaman

The richest without a home

JJ say he dey work for us

Yes, oh we the masses we

He for stay Sodom/Gomorrah

Let him take tro-tro or walk

JJ’s lie all end for Sunyani

II. JJ/KONADU’S RESPONSE

Ah! We are filthy rich

Our friends pay for it all

We say that all the time

Yes, we do say that

FRIENDS paid for it

ANTI-MILLS CAMPAIGN

THE ROAD TO SUNYANI

TUDU DOPE/WEE

EDUCATION OF KIDS

MANSIONS/FARMS

SPEED BOATS

FLEET OF CARS

JET-SETTING LIFESTYLE

HOSPITALS OVRESEAS

DESIGNER CLOTHES

NSAWAM CANNERY

RIDGE FIRE-STORM

VINTAGE WINES

III. GHANAIAN CHORUS

Wonders will never end

JJ FRIENDS pay for it

Paved the roads to Sunyani

Filled potholes to Sunyani

Ah! FRIENDS weren’t Friends

They were no longer FRIENDS

They now follow Simpa Mills

The Fante man with butter

JJ’s doting FRIENDS

JJ-made billionaires

Friends with rags-to-riches

Rags-to-riches biographies

The who is who of thieves

Konadu’s doting FRIENDS

Konadu’s subservient women

Women who became wealthy

Women who have it all

Even married women

Whose boyfriends are rich

JJ’s doting FRIENDS

Konadu’s doting FRIENDS

Know how to butter it all

Butter their political bread

Today Fante Mills has it

Simpa Mills has butter

He has buttered it for all

Buttered it for JJ’s FRIENDS

Stomach politicians on butter

Another sun will rise

Another butter will thaw

Greedy Bastards will mutate

Elitist thieves without shame

Masses with political amnesia

Yes, we the foolish masses

Oh! The lost postcolony

Oh! Dreams deferred
