There’s always a level of humor added to everything Ghanaians do. It’s really hard to keep us serious all the time. Even when the situation or in this case, the people are important, we still find a way to release tension by cracking jokes and forming nicknames.
Almost every politician who matters has a nickname and for some of them, the names are stuck.
Take for instance Alan Cash. A lot of people don’t even know what his real name is. They just know him as Alan Cash. The name was given to him by the grassroot supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for his generosity and it got stuck.
The presidents who have been in power have been called a lot of names too.
Akufo-Addo has been called King promise, Arishrish Nkontomire, Nana show boy, clearing agent and Nana Kalyppo among others.
Check out our full list of funny nicknames given to some politicians and why they were given.
