Ghanaian historian argues "Jamaica" is an Akan term that emerged during slave trade

In a separate story, a Ghanaian historian who appears to be at the Ancestral River Park at Assin Manso in the Central Region of Ghana has argued that "Jamaica" is an Akan term.

In a snippet of GBCNews sighted by YEN.com.gh, the gentleman explains that the term "Jamaica" may sound like a word from the land of Jamaica itself but in reality, it was a group of Akan slaves that named the place with the term.

The historian explained that the word Jamaica actually comes from "perhaps, I've remained here" in Akan, which is said in a similar word pronunciation as "Jamaica".
