''I know [Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region] well, I've been there,'' he answered a curious passenger who asked if he has toured the region.

Aside from the Twi dialect, the London man indicated that he has forgotten how to speak Ga, Hausa, and Krobo.

Despite relocating to his birth country for a long time, he said he tries to speak to Ghanaians daily when he meets them.

Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported a visually impaired mother of two, Florence Kpoblenu, has given a heart-rending narration about how she became blind and her subsequent struggle with stigma.

Before 1994, she had functioning eyes and was fully grown when she suddenly became blind completely after a severe headache.

Kpoblenu had no prior knowledge of how to manoeuvre her way as a visually impaired person but had to cater for her children singlehandedly. Her husband abandoned them after she became blind.
