Ghanaian musician, Yaa Pono has adviced parents to desist from forcing their children to speak foreign languages and rather focus on their native one.
It’s an open secret most parents prefer to hear their children do well in English Language, preferably American accents rather than their native language.
Some parents even go to the length of banning their children from speaking their native languages at home. a rule that is punishable by the parents when broken.
Fair to say Yaa Pono isn’t happy about such acts from certain parents as he made it known in a post stressing that it’s not compulsory to have an American accent hence if you ain’t given birth to over there, there’s no need to try speaking like them.
“STOP TEACHING YOUR KOOBI CHILDREN SLANGS IF THEY ARE NOT BORN IN AMERICA…. TEACH THEM THEIR LANGUAGE… YANKEE NO BE BYFORCE” Pono wrote on Twitter.
