Making French Ghana’s second official language is generational thinking – eShun

Songwriter and Musician, eShun, shared her opinion on the Government’s pledge to make French the official second language of Ghana. The songstress had a differing opinion to that of her fellow artiste Okyeame Kwame who is against the Government’s decision.

So what is the buzz all about? The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, announced at the 2019 La Francophone week that the Government had decided to adopt French as Ghana’s second official language. In summary, the purpose of this decision by the Government, is according to the Minister, to bring about improved regional integration across Ghana, and most especially with Ghana’s neighboring French-speaking nations.

This decision has had mixed reactions from the nation’s populace and two of Ghana’s music artists joined the conversation with very different views. eShun had a very different view to that of Okyeame Kwame who stated on social media that making French Ghana’s official second language was, “disrespectful to our pride and culture.”

In a radio interview that took place last weekend, eShun, when asked about her view, said she was “excited” about the move. She elaborated by giving an example of a trip to Senegal in her capacity as a UNHCR High-Level Supporter on Statelessness where communication became challenging. French was the language being spoken and translation was not always made to her straight away, thereby making her draw the conclusion that if only she knew how to speak French, communication at the program would have been easier.

She further elaborated that Ghanaians being encouraged to learn French would boost relations and business with the neighboring Francophone countries, and that Kwame Nkrumah’s vision for a united Africa could come a step closer when there is a common language spoken among all Africans.

Speaking for the entertainment industry, eShun, added that it would give Ghanaian musicians an opportunity to organise and have event promoters engage their services more effectively in the Francophone countries. “It will help our business men and women do more business among the French speaking countries since communication is key to business; Actors in Ghana are possibly missing out on film roles in French-speaking countries due to the language differences.” eShun suggested.

The singer disagreed with Okyeame Kwame’s stance, saying that, “he goofed” this time and that with the evolution of business, technology and the ways of the world today in general, it would do better for Ghana’s future to bring in the French language.

This is a conversation that is likely to continue and have many differing opinions across the Ghana.

An ongoing wedding has been canceled because groom’s father eloped with the bride’s mother.

The unfortunate incident was revealed by a friend to one of the families last night via his space on twitter.

A dismayed guest and friend to the bride’s family, Max Vayshia took to Twitter to narrate the incident as it happened.

He posted;

“So this wedding was canceled because the groom’s father eloped with the bride’s mother. Mahd oo.”

As funny as it was, it wasn’t really funny to him. For him, the funny aspect was the fact that it happened live in front of everyone.

“What is funnier is that this is not a joke. It happened live 😂”, he added.

Now, thinking about this, if what we are all suspecting happens, the ex-fiancé and fiancée becomes step brother and step sister. The stepson and daughter become ex-lovers.

While people endorse the decision to cancel the wedding, others believe they were not ready to get married yet. Citing that if they were, they wouldn’t allow the business of two consenting adults to influence the process of tying their knots.
