Uncle Obama

Uncle Obama

Seems like Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu refuses to disappear. The TV personality and aspiring actress has become Ghana’s first ever viral Internet star and is causing a stir in the United States, Europe and around the world with her song and accompanying music video for ‘Uncle Obama’ which has been released under the moniker ‘Sister Deborah’

The song, which she says has nothing to do with the US President Barrack Obama but is being perceived as such and has gained major popularity worldwide in the 2 weeks since its release.

With over half a million views collectively online, the video for Uncle Obama has now caught the attention of mainstream media.

CNN’s Richard Davis contacted Sister Deborah two days ago to set up a Skype interview with the Queen of Quirk, Jeanne Moos. The interview, which aired last two nights on CNN International & CNN America, can be viewed here.

Watch what Sister Deborah had to say about the song and video, which has stirred up a lot of feelings online:

    way to go, debbie. we all agree that you cant sing, but you sure are making te headlines with this one! thumbs up.
    ..and hey, there was no point saying ‘sorry’. It is art, and a little humour doesnt hurt anyone. whoever gets offended by this is definitely too uptight.

    People Please, it’s not like we don’t have biscuits named after Obama… And why are we acting like Daddy Lumba never sang “Aben Wɔ Ha” or Papa Shee never did “Koyonn Sɔ” and RnM don’t have a song where all they say is “Ɛhyehye me ɛwowɔ me”

    vanessa has a typical ghanaian accent, its nice i like the fact that vanessa deborah didnt fake an foreign accent when she was being interviewd. if it was yvonne okoro or nadia, they would have faked an accent.

    what does aben wo ha mean? can somebody transalate in english please?!


    Vote -1 Vote +1Frog Reply:

    @maame, it is a form of slang or a term that loosely mean “something that is ripe for the taking” or “anything that u won’t work for”
    So if I say aben wo ha it will means am loaded and am enjoying myself.It depends on the context that it is used.Hope u have a rough idea abt it

    @Jay, I like ur comment some Ghanaians are hypocrites through and through.Some ppl are decieving themselves that they are offering honest criticisms but all they are doing is just plain hating.If DL or kojo Antwi had sang this song the same ppl wld have been praising them.Get real ppl.Envy is a disease so try to get well
