Ghanaians are conservative, be they Christians, Muslims or traditionalists, nobody jokes with religion in Ghana. And if you grew up in Ghana, you would most probably have had no choice but to comply with your religious parents’ rule.

If you had religious parents, then you must have experienced the following:
1. You are always first in Church
And you’d be waiting for church service to start like:
Truly religious Ghanaian parents usually double as church workers. And church workers must always be at the church hours before anyone else.
2. And you'd be last to leave
Despite the 3-hour service that has made you extra hungry, you'd have to wait for your parents to greet everybody before leaving. It's even worse if your parents are elders who have to be in meeting after church.
3. Morning devotions
Very loooooong morning devotions. Morning devotion in your house is just as long as a typical church service. Waking up early was such a pain!
4. You become a prayer point
Did you get bad grades at school? Prayer point! Misbehaving at home or in school? Prayer point. And most often when your parents don't get to sub you during the long-ass morning devotions, they would make sure they do in church.
5. You can never get away with anything, ever!
There are so many people who know your parents and can’t wait to report any wrong doing on your part to them.
6. All your clothes are baggy
Religious parents have something against clothes that fit. Baggy clothes were holier jare.
7. No friendship/relationship with the opposite sex
For where?! Your friends will be handpicked by your parents and only the holiest of your gender make the cut.
