It’s a sort of joke to say that no one in Ghana dies a natural death but in reality, it’s more than a joke, it’s an astute observation of the way Ghanaians think.
We’re just incapable of using our brains to assess the conditions behind an incident but rather all we know is turning to superstition and the ‘unknown’.
The fact is anytime we do that we ignore the real world failings which lead to the death and instead throw everything into the realm of ‘fama nyame’.
Last Friday an accident occurred in Tamale involving numerous fans of Fancy Gadam and some employees of Zylofon Cash, leading to the death of close to a dozen people including two workers of Zylofon.
Now, some people on social media are claiming the accident was a ritual sacrifice by Zylofon boss Nana Appiah Mensah.
As you might recall a certain ‘evangelist’ once claimed occultism was the source of Nana Appiah’s wealth and therefore people are claiming those who died are sacrifices to keep his wealth flowing.
