mama says:

even some whites and half cast can speak twi 

Akos says:

whats is the meaning of this……….why cant she speak twi.i was also born in Germany but i can speak twi very well

Amoah says:

@Akos, LOL… it’s call stupidity! I just don’t understand how one can live in a country since age of 5 and not speak any of the local languages?!? Only stupid africans. When do you hear a white, asian, latino, middle-eastern saying …”oh I don’t speak my local or my countries language?!? and for africans it’s like a fashion… Jackie speaks Twi very well. I’ve seen her in movies where she’s speaking Twi, so I don’t get it. But like said it’s stupidity fashion. 🙂

ama ghana says:

she is reading twi bear in mind, and more than 50% of twi speakers cant read & write the language so dont judge

F dem says:

Ok fake ass Jackie, u can’t speak English well and u can’t speak twi

Mike says:

Girl we are proud of you hosting a show is not eazy since is not your job and in twi.

queenie says:

twi is much easier to speak rather than reading twi…yall should leave her alone

em says:

Huh if she can’t speak Twi, what about we that we based in U.S. Huh she did well lol i can’t read twi but she did. GOOD JOB. hun. lol those callers were funny..

Decypha says:

Bullsh*t!! She skuled with sarkoie at motown!

B.B says:

Y’all should let her be! It’s not compulsory  for everyone to speak Twi, besides Twi is not the only spoken language in Ghana.

ato says:

@B.B,no its not by the way who is forcing her?

mabel says:

she has done well. and remember she wasnt born in ghana but in canada. thats one of the reason why her twi is like that. i reckon her twi is good

miss dior says:

@mabel, Thats right, she did a good job, aint like she was born n bred in ghana, at least she speaks the lang. the best way she can n understands perfectly well, i give her kudos for being able to read the news in twi,

Ewur says:

@mabel, Sis Mabel, Yes she was born in Canada and she have been leaving in Ghana years now n still her twi is like dis please that very ashame off her.

Louisa says:

@Ewur, she came to gh at the age of 8 so wat are talking abt, nadia is far better in the local language than her, its the true so pls just let us say it. athough dats her beef

Osido says:

That’s all Jackie can speak please let her be wai…at least she tried love you Jackie so much

ato says:

@mabel,she came to ghana at age 5 and never saw the shores of canada until now with the help of her concert ,so she cant pretend.

Nana says:

@mabel, Dat’s no excuse! My 5yr old son was born here in da states, he’s never been to Gh b4 but he speaks better twi!!

efya says:

who told u van vicker cant speak twi? in fact he speak twi and ga

inchristalone says:

no hating but she seems soo fake to me.from her laughing to her responding to the callers.well thats her palava.

ato says:

@inchristalone,exactly its annoying.

`madam social says:

wow all this while we’ve been bashing van vicker for not being able to twi

ato says:

ese no ara ,which of the whites will abandon their language for others?its a shame.

mother says:

@ato, exactly ..what a crap coming from her ..as if her mom never taught her how to speak her dialect ..smh

Stella says:

Oh Jackie so you cant speak twi? what northern Ghana twi is a true Akan like you speaking? Even Nadia Buari’s twi is far better than yours

linda says:

 she was born and raised in Canada 

Adjoa Nbaaso) says:

@linda, But She can eat Ga kenkey and kyinam.She was kind of shy from the way she was laughing and all the its not easy oo that she said.She is just use to people seeing her speaking english thats why.And I belive the reason why she was speaking that way is cuz She had to read whatever was on the paper.

akua says:

@linda, that aint a reason. My cousin was born in the Uk and raised there she comes to Ghana once every five year and speaks twi better than Jackie.

ato says:

@linda,she was born in canada BUT came to ghana at age 5 so whats the big deal about it? pretender 

maka aa maka says:

@linda, erm she wasnt born and raised in canada all her life..as a matter of fact shes lived in ghana since she was 9or so ..that is like 20yrs now.. puhlease!thats no excuse..

NYC says:

@linda, let my 9-year old daughter who was conceived, born, and being raised in NYC speak twi and you will realized that what Jackie Appiah is doing is sheer stupidness. If my 9-year old can read twi bible and recite quotations at church in twi, then Jackie Appiah should not represent Ghana in anyway. On the otherhand, twi is not the only dialect in Ghana, so she better be fluent in other dialects like Ga, ewe, hausa, etc.. What a disgraceful woman. Please stop saying she was born and raised in Canada till age 5. I was born and raised in the U.S and have accomplished two masters and a PhD and have never lived and/or worked in Ghana but only for vacation but still twi speak and understand very well.

Ken says:

@Stella, Jackie did very well on the show in fact she was the best so what is GC and these dumb commenters talking about?

Hanna says:

@Stella, Jackie was fantastic on the show she spoke and read well I listened to her on my way home from work so what are u guys talking about? Jackie you are blesses every hater here will suffer. You were good

Kofi says:

@Stella, Jackie spoke so well so I’m quiet confused why GC is complaining or the bush people that are commenting who didn’t even listen to the program well I listened and Jackie nailed it. Becca to came and couldn’t speak the twi so why didn’t you write about becca?

Gina says:

@Kofi, because Becca is not important
