One of the clear and present dangers to Ghanaian culture is the wholesale adoption of fake a$$ accents by most of our actors/actresses, the same people always complaining that foreign content is taking over Ghanaian stations and driving them out of business.
It’s not appropriate for local tv stations to show ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ and other ‘twi-novellas’ to make money but it’s cool for Ghanaian actors who have lived here all their lives to suddenly develop incoherent foreign accents.

Kumkum Bhagya is one probably the biggest program on Ghanaian television right now, even if it is a soap opera just like the millions of other soap operas in the world – the fact that it’s in Twi seems to excite people a lot.
Still, it has built a cult following that for the moment seems unmatched in the history of television in Ghana. It brings people’s lives to a standstill for the hour it’s on.

Adom TV's 'Kumkum Bhagya': Are Ghanaians that Much ‘Underprivileged’ to Be Cheerily Watching this Mess?

Kumkum Bhagya

I decided to make last Sunday a fruitless day—by going to the church and then afterwards by watching Kumkum Bhagya on Adom TV.
I wouldn’t want to ‘dent’ this piece with my scrutiny of the church but let me briefly capture this for you, before proceeding to why I am mainly writing this piece.
From my visit, I easily re-established that organised religion hasn’t really changed since my days of active membership.
Perhaps, the stagnation is a reflection of the hovering dogma; the church is entrenched in its ways just as in its ideologies.
Nevertheless, as I have always said; religion and in this case the church offers a refreshing sense of community-ship. This a positive and commendable position churches occupy in the discourse which we cannot undermine. It was invigorating to see old men and women dance to some of the beautiful Methodist songs and chit chat after the service.
But that’s not in anyway an indication that the church’s messages and doctrines are true or that in the bigger scheme of things, it fosters progress.
In a comparative deduction, the church is like Hamaz: Hamaz does a lot of charitable works and offers comfort to several people but that does not in anyway come close to the harm the same Hamaz champions.

I know I have been missing for the better part of this year so far—and to be frank, it’s not my fault. I am a typical Ghanaian woman, just that I have an insane obsession with sex; so you shouldn’t expect that I house the blame for my apparent disappearance.
The truth is, I have been on an aggressive job and room hunting—and also, I have been looking for a man capable of taking me to cloud nine without the help of a Viagra, the new appetizer for most Ghanaian men.
Most of these Ghanaian landlords are cunning but at least, they are just thieves, unlike the many male recruitment officers and bosses of businesses I have come across who want to examine what’s inside my panties as if that is where my skills and CV reside.
It’s a jungle out here in Ghana; and let me mention that one landlord I dealt with last week could pass for President John Dramani Mahama—his promises were offensively empty. He tried to rent a chamber and hall to me as a one bedroom flat with his sidekick glorifying the offer as the best on the market.
If you’ve not lived in Ghana as a young single woman before, you wouldn’t completely appreciate and understand the plight of many of such women, including my myself.
