In Ghana, if you are a rich man, or your wish to pretend like you're one, you gain some power and control.
Do I need to remind anyone of the utterances people like Kennedy Agyapong have gotten away wit? Here are some things you REALLY need to have to achieve your goal if you want to show that you're rich;
1. A Toyota Land Cruiser (V8)
Please if you have a V8 you are rich, case closed. That’s like the brand car for rich people in Ghana. If you have it you probably have the dough too.
2. Having many phones
Rich guys in Ghana don’t carry one phone. You have to have like three for all the major networks so that we know you are in town.
3. Wearing Santiago
Santiagos are the shoes with long mouths. Poor people can’t buy them.
4. Saying ‘Keep the Change’
Regular Ghanaians never say ‘Keep the Change’ like we are fighting over 50p and you are saying ‘Keep the Change’. Sign, Sealed and Deliver you are a rich person.
5. Wearing Brazilian Weave
If you wear Brazilian weave, its either you are rich or it is your boyfriend who is rich. Regular Ghanaians like the synthetic one.
6. Eating Fancy Things
Ghanaians don’t eat custard. So if you are eating things like custard you were probably born with a silver spoon in your mouth.
7. Speaking Big English
Regular Ghanaians don’t embellish their English. If you are doing that you probably have money or you are just trying to flex.
