Glad to see people from different continents appreciating the foods from my motherland. I encourage everyone to make a trip to Ghana and see for yourself how lovely the country is. My personal favs as an Asante is fufu and goat light soup, followed by TZ, Waakye and some banku with fante fante or pepper sauce. And oh, we have the best Jollof. Thank you David❤️
