Yellow Corn

Do U Remember when yellow-corn was the order of the day in Ghana. Those were the days when man had yellow-corn "coco" (sugerfree) for breakfast, yellow-corn banku for lunch and yellow-corn kenkey for dinner (fishfree). I recall there was yellow-corn soap. Acheampong (may his soul rest in peace) tried to convince us it was better than the white corn, although rumour has it yellow corn was banned from the castle and all yellow castle walls were re-painted. Ghana was hard my brothers and sisters. - by Obrefo William

Those were the days T-roll, Sardine, key soap, etc were classified as essential commodities and queuing was a full time job. Those were the BAD old days.

Gone are the days when Ochristo, Tikolee and myself used to board the wooden 'tro-tro' bound for Tema to attend 'Stubee's' Math classes. To make sure that the fine honeys going in the opposite direction in their 'wabs' and 'beemers' didn't see us, we had to wait till a big bus obstructed their view, then it was everyone for themselves in hurling oneself onto that 'tro-tro' while in motion.

Bell Bo...

Gone are the days when "bell", "platform" and "skin tight" were the fashion of the time and "bump" was one of the popular dances. Those with strong hips and heavy weights could take the floor with their waists. SA, You mentioned "Bell" as the most fashioned trousers in those days. You forgot to mention that "Guarantee" the 20-30cm sole shoe also went with the trousers as the most fashioned guy in town. --NQH
