The Ghanaian part ist on: The Ga Man

Of all the men in other Ghanaian tribes, the Ga man is the most fearless – moreso after his balls of kenkey and red pepper. But tread softly. Because of their horrible sense of humour, every joke on him is a personal affront to his manhood. And since he applies the same code of honour to women and men, please for heaven`s sake, if he says.. “Ma yi bo eei” (I will beat you), don`t stand to challenge him, thinking it as empty threat. Woman, wife, lover, fiancee, he will turn you into a punching bag! But that is the core of the Ga man.

Here you will find more on the Ga Man and other Ghanaian tribes:
