We were today-years-old when we got to know some of the Ghanaian names that had been given to some scarf styles. A Twitter user, Kwesi Osei Simpey shared this information and we thought it wise to share it with you.
Some of the names when translated are funny but understandable because of the type of style and the occasions they are used at. Check them out.
