Be yourselves!

Indeed Ghana had some quality Actors and Musicians, because we did acculturate our local languages with English and it made us stand out in Africa and the World. Even our great and formidable High Life Music was so beautiful, sang equally in Fanti, Twi, Ga and I believe even in Ewe. These days these greedy selfish Akans have monopolized the market, and made life so miserable for themselves and the rest of their compatriots.

Nobody seems to draw the analogy with, Taxi, Tro-tro and Street Hawking business, but in simple terms, this is exactly what Twi has degenerated into - Trash Language! You want filth, you want shouting, you want insults, you want ignorance, you want abject stupid called comedy say it in Twi. You want failure of parliament, let Twi dominate the hallways.

And last but least, please stop saying our local languages, because Akans make an effort not to speak or understand any other language, but they expect others to engage them. If to be yourself means speaking your own local language why don't they pass legislation such that if you live in Northern Ghana, you must study Hausa in school, if you migrate from Brong Ahafo, Western Region, Volta Region, Ashanti Region to Accra, you must study Ga in school. This will end the same language cleansing process that these hypocrites claim the British unleashed on the Gold Coast. Twi is as foreign to a Hausa or Ewe man as English is foreign to a Twi speaking Ghanaian. STUPID!!!
