A Ghanaian lecturer is making waves on the social sphere when she decided to teach her Communications class a thing or two about popular Ghanaian musicians, Fancy Gadam and Maccasio.
Wunpini F. Mohammed teaches International Mass Communications at the Pennsylvania State University, in the United States.
In teaching her class the Political Economy of Communications, Wunpini used the popular Northern Region artistes as case studies.
The lecturer tweeted she had played the videos of the Tamale music gurus before the class, with the caption: “Playing @FancyGadam2 & @maccasio1's music before class because we're discussing Political Econ of Communications & Fancy & @maccasio1 are case studies.”
In a report by Pulse.com.gh, Wunpini said she usually plays Ghanaian music and holds discussions before her class starts.
According to her, the students became very interested in the musicians and their artistry, and how they push their brand in the Northern part of Ghana.
Wunpini further disclosed that she uses Ghanaian music or films to sometimes further explain her topics, if the content is relevant.
She noted that she had been doing so for five years and it's especially common for her to better teach her subject when she explains them through the use of other global relevant content.
