Travelling the Jollof Road has helped us uncover many interesting facts about West Africa and its people. While there are similarities that bind us, there are also differences that make each country stand out. You get the whole picture when you’re immersed in the culture and lifestyle. Here are some things we noticed about Ghana:
1. Ghanaians are patient drivers
Unlike Nigeria where everyone suffers a bout of road-rage, drivers in Ghana are pretty chill.
2. Having constant electricity is the norm
In Ghana, you don’t have to worry about a possible power outage while you’re watching your favourite show.
3.There’s a strong sense of community
The people of Ghana are the warmest people you’ll ever meet. It’s evident in the way they relate to one another, and even to strangers.
4. You can’t take the music away from the people
Music is an important aspect of Ghanaian culture. Therefore, it’s almost rare to find someone who isn’t ready to throw it down on the dancefloor.
5. Greetings are essential
What can I say? Ghanaians love courtesies.
