Ghana is a super interesting country where we come up with our own special terms and phrases.
We don’t know how some of these words came to existence but interestingly, they’ve been accepted by the masses.
If you’re a foreigner, you may never know what these words actually mean.
So what are some of these words we are talking about? Let’s have a look.
1. Item 13 – Refreshment
After meetings in Ghana, there is something known as “Item 13” which actually means, refreshment. It is widely used by Ghanaians but this might stump foreigners because they can hardly tell what it means.
This came about because, usually in meetings, number 13 on the list of the agenda is usually refreshment.
2. Agartha – Sweeties/Candies
In Ghana, most of us used to refer to candies/sweeties as “Agartha”. As to how we got the name, only God knows.
