Our in-House Lingo and Their Meanings–From Ashawobrity to Yaanom

2 min

GhanaCelebrities.Com is a living platform: we are not just highly annoying, we also have several specially invented words, which have specific meanings to our writers and readers.
This is the page where we explain what a particular lingo means, whenever you find it in any of our writings. We are that special and specific.
Some of these words are coined by us, others have been adopted and given specific meanings.
Ashawobrity: (Noun)
A Ghanaian celebrity who claims to be a celebrity but in fact sleeps with men for financial gains—and to fund her lavish lifestyle which she sometimes proudly showcases on social media.
Example: Moesha
Yaanom: (Noun)
A bunch of deluded stupefied persons, usually bitter women, who hang around on social media and hate to see other women make progress in life, especially when it comes to a relationship. These people are inherently bitter and will insult other women who have stable enviable relationships or marriages on any given day.
