Okyeame Kwame advocates for learning local languages

Okyeame Kwame's policy on teaching Ghanaian students about their culture

Ace Rapper, patriot, and tourism ambassador, Okyeame Kwame, has suggested to the government to consider making the study of Ghanaian languages an integral part of the educational system.

According to the rapper, the education system needs to make the study of Ghana’s local languages a priority so that Ghanaians are able to preserve their culture.

He said Ghanaian students need to be taught their native languages (L1) and take it seriously because that is the basis of language development.

He specifically stated that at the senior high school level, a Ghanaian Language course should be part of the grading system so that if one does not pass it, they are not allowed admission into the tertiary institutions.

“We need to admonish government to add one’s local language to the courses that qualify them for tertiary institutions,” he said.

He added that the study of culture should also form an integral part of the curriculum.

According to Okyeame Kwame, Arabian children are taken through education to live their culture.

He added that Jewish children in America also are given special tuition on issues bothering on their heritage and culture.

The Rap Dacta who appeared on Fashion Diaries said that his admonition stems from his Made in Ghana campaign with seeks to inculcate the spirit of nationalism in Ghanaians.

His latest ‘Made in Ghana’ album is available for purchase on Aftown and other online music stores.
