Ghanaian youth pretend they don’t care on Twitter but they are suffering

Ghanaian-British musician, M3NSA, says young Ghanaians are doing everything possible to remain sane in the face of all the challenges in the country, but act as if they don’t care on Twitter.


M3NSA, who is a member of the FOKN BOIS duo, says the pretentions of the youth are hidden behind dark comedy.

He, therefore, expressed worry about the fact that the country’s youth would have to go through trauma every day because of the nature of governance they are being subjected to.

According to the multi-talented singer, this is what he sees when he scrolls down his Twitter feed.

“Scrolling down my timeline. GH Twitter is really a hotpot of young people barely enduring trauma every day. Poverty, health issues, flooded homes, death, unemployment, disappointment and money related heartbreak. ALL hidden behind dark humour and Idontcarism. But we dey soffa.”

M3NSA has been consistent with using his craft to talk about issues most people consider uncomfortable. With Wanlov, his partner at FOKN BOIS, they often employ humor and mockery to hold up a mirror to society, demanding the accountability most people do not seek for.

M3NSA, who is officially known as Mensa Ansah, with this tweet, added his voice to the growing concerns of Ghanaians about what is happening in Ghana at the moment.

During that same time, many houses in the capital city, Accra, have been flooded as the country ushers into a rainy season.
