So the book, The Imported Ghanaian talks a lot about how Ghanaians speak, and common sayings we use. The author also talks about how we often test diaspora Ghanaians on their knowledge of twi to see how Ghanaian they really are. So I’ve created a fun test of sayings in twi, pidgin, and local jargon, to see how Ghanaian YOU are. Let us know what score you got! Tag, you’re it!
A picture of the Ussher Fort. It can be found in Jamestown, Accra, Ghana. It was built by the Dutch in 1649 as a factory.
I am enjoying taking pictures with my phone now, because its very handy, unlike the DSLR. The olloclip makes everything beautiful as well. I used ms-tuts as a spice in this picture.
Hope you guys like it.

Narrate Africa Book Review: The Imported Ghanaian
For those of us fortunate enough to travel to abrokyire (abroad) and return, how many times have we talked about the misconceptions of abrokyire, the frustrations of coming back to Ghana from abrokyire and adjusting to Ghanaian society, or even the complex dynamics of infusing change into our political system while keeping the pillars of our culture? I talked about this and did a book review of The Imported Ghanaian in this video.
