Ghanaians appear very impressed with a video of a foreigner dancing the 'adowa' dance.
The video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Facebook page, Kofi Mackinney, had an energetic white man displaying the various moves of the Ashanti kingdom's traditional dance.
The man, whose identity was not disclosed, was in a setting that appeared to be a funeral.
He initially wrapped a big black cloth around him in the traditional way and just after doing that, he hopped right onto the dance floor dancing to the tune of the playing drums.

This one great thing to do, all those saying we are selling our culture, how well do you know your culture. We've learned their culture to the extent of not knowing ours, he also learning from us and that's a good to do to know others culture and fuse them so we know both cultures and learn from each other.... How well can you dance to your culture drums. I love this guy.

The setting of the class, as well as the students, appeared non-Ghanaian, but the actual location of the students was not disclosed in the post.
The class teacher whose name was revealed to be Patricia Amarteifio was seen teaching the students how to pronounce their Akan names among other Twi sentences.
