Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
You may sometimes hear some people joke with death and how sweet life after earth's sojourn could be, especially judged by the process of internment.
The thought of death could actually send cold shivers down the spine of most people, but it is a must-happen.
However, despite how fearful the thought is, coffin makers are latching on new methods to attract mourners who are prepared to bury their deads.
In Ghana, for example, these coffin makers smile to the banks on a daily basis as they constantly idealise new designs.
A nurse was once buried with a coffin designed exactly like a syringe while some time ago, photographs of a well-designed casket in the shape of a beer bottle trended on the internet.
The Africa Fact Zone recently collated some of these very attractive designs which it titled: ' 'Custom-made coffins are a thing in Ghana.'
It added: "They are designed based on the preferences, job, and habits of the deceased when he or she was alive."
Below are some of such designs that have got people talking on social media:
In her reaction, Edwina Christlove brought in a different angle by noting that some people have now professional mourners and that they get paid for crying at funerals.
In what can be further described as admirable creativity, another person posted photographs of coffin designed like trainers.
Meanwhile, a passionate Ghanaian mother has spoken her views on the ban on social gatherings, particularly for schools to be lifted very soon or too many school girls will get pregnant.
According to the woman who appears to have had some sort of proof regarding her statements, many school-going children have already been impregnated at Kasoa.
The woman made the compelling views known during a special edition of YENkasa where YEN.com.gh goes out and about, gathering public opinions on trending and controversial topics.
