The trend of our so-called “Celebs” who travel to
Europe for few days or months and start speaking
like they natives is sickening.

“I woke up to news that “Gospel singer”, Gifty
Osei, says she finds difficulty in expressing herself
in her mother tongue, Twi.
Gifty Osei has been left off the hook several times
but this time, her claims of being an ‘init’ will not
be left to wash.
I was awed by this, because, this is a woman who
sings in the same language and shows command
over the language when she sings.
This trend of trying to forget our identity and being
who we are not is very disheartening. How?
The trend of our so-called “Celebs” who travel to
Europe for few days or months and start speaking

Kofi Anan, the former Secretary General of UN, has
stayed in Europe and other countries but is still
eloquent in his local language. He speaks an
impeccable English language but in a Ghanaian
accent.
Why? Because he believes in his National Identity
and will not sacrifice that for cheap attention.
I mean how? A supposed gospel “singer” living a
false life because of small fame lies about herself.
Then how do we respect the genre you represent?
The Gospel genre I think is likened to the church
so should be given that respect.
If these gospel musicians run away from their true
identity, then I think we are facing a crisis. Sister
Gifty, please come again.
For the record, Gifty Osei is a born and bred
Ghanaian from Senya Breku. She, before gaining
fame in her genre was very eloquent in the
language, Twi.
