My Weku means “My Family” in Ga (spoken in Accra, Ghana).
It is also the name of a brand new site on All Things African by Ghanaian Nii Thompson.
More than a site, it is a well-conceived project aimed at celebrating Africa across lots of areas and a première online resource for the review, analysis and promotion of African Culture in its entirety.
I am honoured to be guest-blogging there today, at Nii’s kind invitation, with my first post for this year, "2010-The Year of Afrika 50 Years On", which includes some thoughts on the CAN tournament just ended in Angola.
As I told Nii the other day, I wasn’t happy that his team, the “Black Stars”, put my own team, the “Palancas Negras”, out of the tournament earlier on, but I was hoping that they'd win it! Sorry that it wasn’t the case, as I just learned that they lost to "The Pharaohs" of Egypt in the final…
But congratulations are due all around anyway, as all attentions now move on to SA 2010!
So, you are all invited to join The African Family here.
