Ghanaians are very peculiar people with regards to our conversational characters. It is easy for anyone from any other country to say this as well but one thing that separates Ghanaians from others is how we answer everyday questions.
YEN.com.gh comes with a compilation of some of the interesting ways Ghanaians answer simple questions.
1. "I will say yes and no"
This is probably the most popular answer to a question that demands a simple yes or no. Unsurprisingly, most Ghanaians prefer to say both yes and no.
These Ghanaians who answer questions in that manner tend to give reasons for why both affirmative and negative answers make sense to the question.
Sometimes, this tends to be frustrating and even funny.
2. "Why do you want to know?"
This is a classic clap-back response where Ghanaians answer the question with another question. They ask you to justify why you are deserving of the answer.
This "answer" is the most popular one among a special list of "question answers" that Ghanaians tend to use to avoid answering a question.
3. "I don't want your girl/boy to come and beat me"
This is a rather specific answer to specific situations. It is given usually when people are asked personal questions and they want to throw up the personal life of the one asking into the conversation.
This line is usually given by women.
4. "Oh, nothing"
This is a soft and harmless response from many, man Ghanaians. It is given when people are either afraid or unable to explain further on something.
This is probably used to answer too many questions that could be outlined here.
