Unless you can explain the extensive similarities between the behaviour of Ghanaians and Jamaicans as the person in the video below points out in another way; I think this is a clear indication that Jamaicans come from Ghana…LOL
I have not experienced how Jamaicans do this but I am confident Ghanaians do it more aggressively than Jamaicans—though the woman in the video may convince you otherwise.
Most of my friends have stopped telling people back home when they are going down to Ghana because the moment you mention it, you get a tall list of things to bring them and common on this list is a MOBILE PHONE.
I personally do not understand back home Ghanaians’ obsession with mobile phones. I have iphone 5 and I’ve had it for 2 years on contract. I have not changed it or do not want another phone though I can afford or get another on a contract (let’s say for free). My upgrade to get a new phone is due and I’ve not even bothered myself calling to get a new phone of my choice delivered. I’ve only had my phone replaced once by Apple when it had some issues. I don’t really care about a damn phone but it seems a lot of Ghanaians do, especially those back home.
A person may be speaking to you or chatting to you on a mobile phone and again ask you to bring him or her a phone. When you cannot afford and you cunningly ask; why do you want another phone since you already have one—that is when the person will tell you about all the problems the phone in his or her hand has…
Interestingly, just as the woman mentions in the video, Ghanaians abroad go home with many suitcases and come back with one or nothing. Mostly, all the stuff you take to Ghana never come back not by choice but because people will keep asking that you give it to them, including friends and family with well paid jobs.
Forget the fact that you have bought something for someone out of your own will, the person will take that and also ask that, you give him or her the shoes that you are wearing—when going…
THE BEGGING most stop—and now, they even do it aggressively. If you cannot afford it or decide not to give in to the begging or demand, you become their enemies. Their behaviour towards you changes…
As the woman points out, we understand it is hard down there but it is equally hard here and perhaps even harder out here.
I know friends who have said, people back home wanted to take their panties and boxers shorts from them—pretty pathetic but I do not doubt this.
Forget about that nice shirt, dress or jeans that you so much love—someone will take it from you so you better leave it behind when you go down to Africa. Is this what we want those abroad to think of us?
And it is not only happening in Ghana or Jamaica, I am sure it is happening in Nigeria and other places too. GOSH, the begging and demanding—and the bring me this and that should stop.
They even impregnate women and ask you to send them money for abortion as if you were part of the chopping or they asked for your consent before nailing the woman down on the bed.
My cousin’s friend was about to have a wedding and he called him to ask that he send some pounds for the ceremony. Here again, why do you want a wedding when you do not have the means to hold one—expecting someone abroad to foot your wedding bills?
The worse part is; they are ungrateful when you even help—as the woman states in the video.
