Privately we’ve all laughed at these names and made jokes out of it. Let’s stop the pretense as if we are not guilty of what they did. Wait till you’re called #Azuumi or #amemorla.

What do you mean by "dodged a bullet"?Akakpo Dosu is not even a hard name to pronounce. If Amaniampong, Frimpong-Manso etc can be pronounced, how much more Celestine's name. By the way, Ewe's too have Donkors.
