Ghanaian wordsmith, M.anifest in an interview with Okay Africa has listed his ten favourite things about Ghana. M.anifest came back with a mixed bag of choices -- from a number of culinary dishes to Ghanaian movies, power crisis, popular Kente costume and, even, bold nicknames.

Read his list below.

1. Shitɔ (Shitor)

One of the greatest Ghanaian inventions ever. Joy in a jar. Better than Sriracha, Tabasco and all of their cohorts.

2. Ghanaian movies

Just because they never end with part 1 or 2. At least 4 to 6 parts minimum. I rarely watch them but the trailers give me life.

3. Big breakfast for champions

Breakfast can typically be waakye (rice and beans), red-red (gari & beans), kenkey, and fufu for the starch die hards.

4. When it rains…

When it rains it’s an unspoken holiday. Your workers might not show up. People coming to meetings on time is out of the question. Rain is our snowstorm, our earthquake, our great escape from work.

5. Kente

I don’t really love kente. I get tired of it being overused. I just love the fact that like Adinkra symbols it’s everywhere in the world and we invented it. *beats on chest*What do you think?

6. News read in local languages

We have a penchant for drama. When I hear the news in local dialects it makes Shakespearean tragedies pale in comparison. We don’t read the news, we make stories out of news. It’s inspiring for my music.

7. Grilled tilapia

How food so gawdly and tasty can be everywhere is a mysterious pleasure. Tilapia and banku over jollof, sue me.

8. Irreverent nicknames for people and places

We named a dance alkayida. We nickname our friends, Osama, Saddam, and ap3tw3 (a womaniser). And yes there is an area in Accra called Sodom and Gomorrah.

9. Everyone is into politics and football

Apathy is not a luxury we can afford in these parts. Our voter turnout is incredibly high, and for good or for worse everyone believes they know the right way the country should be run.

10. Candle light dinner… sponsored by ECG

So the term in Ghana for load shedding is dumsor. Nothing funny about it except the jokes we make on social media. Dumsor jokes are irresistible because of how badly we all feel the pain. So no there isn’t a romantic angle to dumsor, but it’s an indication of our wicked sense of humor.
