Where We Dey Go? Trigmatic Questions Government On Decision To Make French Ghana’s 2nd Accepted Language.

Published

on

Rapper and onetime radio personality today in a series of tweets tabled his discomfort about the attempt by Government to make French Ghana’s second language ahead of our local dialects.

The rapper who is currently in Kumasi preparing for his My life concert responded to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration made by Shirley Ayorkor Botchbuy which confirmed that Ghana is set to adopt French as a second language.

Hear Trigmatic, ”Ppl hv died sacrificially 2 hold in high esteem our heritage. Till date dat struggle lives on n the least we could've done was to protect it. Why French as a second language ?This is a cultural indentation to Ghanaians.Thought @FolkloreGH says more of our folklores? #wherewedeygo”

He continued to elaborate more, citing how we clinch onto foreign things and decamp our own as the cause of lack of self-esteem and added its a poor way of growing a generation.

”We growing a generation that will believe less in themselves and more in anything foreign. This has been a very old but grand agenda and it's still in operation. In beginning to see how the trade started? Our leaders have been part of our plight” shared by Trigmatic.

Background;

Speaking at the opening session of the 2019 La Francophonie week, Foreign Affairs Minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, said Ghana’s education sector will be reformed to inculcate the learning of French.

She added that President Akufo-Addo aims to prioritise the French language in Ghana by making the country a full Member of La Francophonie.

Ghana joined the La Francophonie in 2006 and currently an Associate Member but the government has plans of making the country a full member, hence the displeasure registered by the rapper.

Ghana is bordered by three French-speaking countries, namely; Togo, Burkina Faso, and La Cote D’Ivoire but is that enough reason to want to make another foreign language our second accepted language than picking up any of the local dialects as the argument; if or not to make Twi our second language has been far-flung.

Geoscientist “Sena Huks” Readies To Transfigure Skeptics Of His Talent Into Believers With His Upcoming Album.

Published

on

Sena Huks, a stage name which was coined from his birth name Sena Hukpati gives a lead as to how creative and smart this young Ghanaian avid musician can be. Brace up as the songwriter/singer and composer who is also a Geoscientist by profession readies to birth his second album first quarter of 2019.

The “Odade3” (old boy of PRESEC) who winded up from Legon with a degree in Geology and scaled up with a Masters degree in Petroleum Geoscience (Geology Major) from IFP School, France, palpably started exploring his capabilities during his elementary days at Morning Star where he discovered his musical ability which over the years has been molded into a fine art of class.

Versatile, best describes him as he has over the years served musicophiles with a smorgasbord of love related music; RnB, Hi-life, Hip-Life, Hip-Hop, Afro-RnB, Dancehall and Pop among others – evident to this was his first debut (14-track) mixtape, “LET IT GO” in 2014 which had three (3) singles; ‘Wonkoaa’, ‘Looongtin’ and ‘Go down’ which enjoyed massive air play on various electronic media platforms in Ghana.

The year 2016 saw the returning Sena Huks release “MARRY ME” and followed it up with “HOLD ON A MINUTE” on the NUFF LOVE RIDDIM, then released two other singles in 2017 – “No More” and “Send me your love”. He plunged right back into the music space in 2018 with “I no dey get you” which featured BBnZ star, Shaker, and later in that same year released “God do am” which seeks to thank his Maker and has gained some attention since its release.

Ghana’s music scene may look like one which is at its chock point with varying factors acting as a brake to the growth of the industry, but with a young talent such as Sena Huks who is applying new skills to the old trade, we see a glimpse of hope.

Lovers of his art are in demand of more music from the prodigy as his music is gaining rapid acceptance, but surprisingly, during a conversation, Sena matched their worries with a best-fit answer.

Hear Sena, “It’s about time the world gets a full body of work from me, so they can judge for their selves the talent they have been sleeping on – the Sena Huks you see today. It’s also an avenue to finally lay to rest the doubt about the musical genius which I’m. Get ready for an album instead.”

The year 2019 is sure to be his year of outburst as the days of Sena Huks-less music chats will be a thing of the past with a soon to come album in sight. Audio links to his works are available online on Aftown, iTunes, Apple music, Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Amazon to mention a few
