British Ghanaians: Lost In Translation?

Presenter Ortis Deley is on a quest to discover the root causes of the decline in Ghanaian languages, being spoken in London, amongst British Ghanaians. Inspired by his own lack of fluency in a Ghanaian language, Ortis is intrigued by the stories of other successful British Ghanaians, who aren’t all fluent Ghanaian language speakers either.

He aims to encourage Ghanaians everywhere in Britain to learn their languages and therefore further embrace their cultural identity.

A few members of the Me Firi Ghana team and other influential Ghanaians within the Diaspora community feature in the show. We commend how the producer managed to bring the Ghanaian community together for this show but what is very relevant is the theme, as the question remains, are young Ghanaians (in Ghana and the Diaspora) more connected to Ghana but less aware of our cultural roots/identity? especially in regards to the Ghanaian language? watch the show and have your say below…
