Comm centre - cell phones and the business of communication in Ghana

...Sounds on da ground and seens on the see-ins

The last few times I have been at home, a lot of my expenses have been eaten up by communication. Buying Areeba scratch cards every other day adds up. Almost every young person in Ghana has a mobile phone now which has aided communication a lot even though the costs involved are still quite high. In Comm centre, Castro Destroyer sings about a poor girl he met at the communication center and he loves her in spite of her poverty. Of course, the song is not about comm centers but what happened to the them? Have they been driven into obscurity by the emergence of cell phones?
