Cadbury's and Ghana

I was happily watching The X-Factor this past Saturday whilst simultaneously on the phone to Nsoromma, when I happened to glance up at an advert on the t.v screen. It was the beat in the background that caught my attention and it was the people dancing that held it.

Sankofa: I swear down those people on the telly look Ghanaian. One of them even looks like Tinny...
Nsoromma: Tinny? Are you sure? What advert was it for? Let me check it on youtube.
---------------
Nsoromma: Oh my God! It is Tinny!

So here's the advert I saw below. It basically reinforces Cadbury's supposed commitment to ethical sourcing of fairtrade chocolate etc. etc. I'm just happy our people are doing big things! The video was well done and everybody looked happy. But that damn head still freaks me out....

Lol @ the head and it's the best quality video Tinny has ever been in in his life! I'm sure about this though, the video makes me uncomfortable somehow (not just the head, Sankofa!). What is he going on a bout anyway...Ga interpretation needed, please :D

Sankofa said...

Second the interpretation request. Any Ga speakers out there that can help a sister out?

trust me he's not saying anything. I can't make out a single Ga word.

Nsoromma...Child of the Heavens said...

Loooooooooooooooool! Typical Ghanaian music! Like Asem with Pigaro...ok I understand lines but it's still a nonsense song

Afrocentric said...

Ok I lie, after listening properly, I can make out "femo noko" at the beginning, which means "do something", and right at the end "ngoomo soo", which roughly means "so much sweetness". (Sorry, I couldn't really be bothered to find the correct IPA symbols to write proper Ga)
