THOSE GUYS AIN'T FUNNY THEY ACT DUMB

CITIZEN ONE,

I am not saying we should only speak Creole English. I am saying we should think and correct a serious problem in the way we communicate comedy to an international audience.

I have noted Nigerian Pidgin English comedy is doing well. Therefore there is need for our comedians in Ghana to evolve the most effective language that will gain us a toe-hold on the multi-billion $ comedy market.

Ps. visit an earlier article I wrote (click opinions, and archived articles) for an earlier article I wrote advocating the speaking of Ghanaian and Continental African languages as lingua franca.

Our authentic languages have power and influence on our: cultural identity/ies, social cohesion, and can contribute to national and continental development and modernisation.

Regards
