Battle Of Fake Accents: Which Ghanaian Celebrity’s Fake Accent Irritates You The Most?38 Comments

Even though I’m personally not a huge fan of the typical strong Ghanaian accent when missed with bad grammar like this:

Of late, some of our celebs have become Professors in fake accents and to be honest, it is quite irritating to the ear. What happened to being proud of your heritage and being yourself and embracing your uniqueness?

The videos below display two gorgeous Ghanaian celebs: Nadia Buari and Tiffany Hayden doing what they know how to do best, faking accents.

I’m not hating because I love both Tiffany and Nadia but really what’s with the accents? Why can’t they talk like they are Ghanaians instead of all this American, British, Patois combo, which makes them sound confused and less intelligent.

Unless it’s for a movie role I don’t think any foreign celeb will put on an accent like the Ghanaian accent or any other accent for that matter just to be cool.

Please, can someone explain to me why our celebrities  like putting on these accents?. Is it to sound cool, modern or western?

I simply can’t stand these accents at all. It seems to me that Miss Nadia is trying to sound like Beyonce, while Tiffany is trying to sound like Nicki Minaj and they are quite pathetic at it.

Who do we crown the queen of  fake accent GC family? How do you feel about the who fake accent issue, is it cool or is it lame?

    Aww there is nothing better than taking on a new culture and personality. Her with short blond hair is fine, The other lady i suposse is very delusional and insincere with herself. Fake accents is part of the “New world globlisation”. Perfect it and use at the right place and time and you will have no problems. Use it at the wrong place and time and make mockery of your self.

    I like both the above ladies, work. My 15month girl love Tiffany (last one). But what I dislike the most is in one GH movie and there are UK, USA, GH, street-lango and God knows what. Now that’s irritation! I don’t mind the UK accents since it’s kind of British English they’re teaching in GH, But US accent!!!! …… It’s just black-american wanna be!

    fake accents are good, it depends where you are. if i’m with my Liberian friends i speak Liberian English, with Nigerian friends i speck like a Nigerian. i live in U.S.A and i speck both White and Black “Aka-ta” English. i am a Ghanaian and i know how to speck like Ghanaian. let look around the world the actresses and actors all have fake accents especially musician in U.S.  all i know is that u don’t have to sound the same for everyone to know where u from, sometimes u have to let people guess where u from.

    @uu, I was think of the Nija being #5 and just saw it in your comment. :-) Having your own ccent is ****y, take the French and Spanish…. and in US they like the British accent. We should like our accent just like Kofi Annan.

    @Amoah,true talk about the ****iness part. I have always wanted to have a french or spanish accent because i find it ****y but no way i can pull that off. I must admit it is frustrating not being heard by people when you talk in your natural Ghanaian accent when you are outside Ghana (in my case the US). I get tired of the pardon me and excuse me i get from various restaurants when ordering even though i speak in my slow Ghanaian accent and when speaking to both friends,colleagues and total strangers and the stupid ignorant questions that follow,How did you get here? ( I walked in the Atlantic ocean lol) and do you know Nelson Mandela? and whether i know Oprah’s new school in South Africa or whether i know some missionary friends of theirs who went to Ghana or Congo he he he. I am still holding on to my Ghanaian accent after all these years,because the more you try to talk like em,the worse,they don’t hear and understand you at all. I love when the Nigerians say “bus”. he he he
