FEATURE: Radio Ghana!!!!!

Listen to article

Why is it that Ghanaians in Diaspora only hear Akan when we tune into the radio on air?

While it is good to have Akan spoken on the radio, it highlight the lack of sensitivity radio stations have to others whose native language is not Akan. Is Akan language the only spoken in Ghana?

It would have been culturally and politically correct if the various languages are spoken at some times of the day so that we could switch on.

It must be boring for a non speaking Akan individual listening to all conversations in Akan on Ghana waves. One would think that with such a unique tapestry of the various cultures and heritage, all Radio stations would have captured the value of our diversity. This is the only key to our economic development and maturity.
