King Ayisoba

Ghana - past our history, presenting our situation, and dreaming the future

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

Countless people have asked me about my three month stay in Ghana. Everytime the question is asked, I give a slightly different answer. The default thing to say is - it was great. I normally prefer pointed questions - my indecisiveness cripples my answers to such general questions. My stay in Ghana inspired and taught me a lot, it made me understand how various things work in Ghana (especially in industry) and how comfortable or uncomfortable I could find myself in my own land. Most people seek out my opinion on going back, and my answer is always the same - eventually I will go back and soon. Why would I? My friend Becca would help out here with her song called Ghana.

I want to see you my father - family and national priorities

King Ayisoba's I want to see you my father is probably most talked about song in Ghana at the moment. I am not sure why this is the case, but Ayisoba's sound is different and quite traditional. Maybe it is because the song's in English? Talking about English, our teachers mounted a two month strike that brought secondary education to a standstill. The issue of strikes is probably the biggest news out of Ghana and right after the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) decided to call it off, the health workers are threathening positive action as well. Ayisoba's major hit is not a silly song with strange instrumentals, it is quite deep when you pay attention to the lyrics.
