    @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.

    @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.

    @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?

    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.

    @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. :-)
