  • Traditional Akan Royal Chiefly Institution: Evolving ceremonial protocol
           in chieftaincy at Duayaw-Nkwanta in Ghana
    • Authors: Godwin Kwafo Adjei
      Abstract: Chieftaincy is one of the most enduring traditional institutions in Ghana that has displayed remarkable resilience from the pre-colonial period to the contemporary era. This article discusses the introduction of new protocolary forms into the institution. Central to the qualitative method deployed is an examination of the interface between “tradition” and modernity” using the 40th anniversary celebration of the paramount chief of Duayaw-Nkwanta, Nana Boakye-Tromo III. In this article, I argue that “traditional elements” are not necessarily at variance with “modern” elements because societies that are often characterized as “modern” also recognize traditions as relevant, rather than as obstacles, to their development.Keywords: Ghana, tradition, modernity, Duayaw-Nkwanta, ceremonial protocol

  • Language of power: Pidgin in the colonial governance of Northern Nigeria
    • Authors: Philip Atsu Afeadie
      Abstract: Pidgin was indispensable as a working language of colonial governance in Northern Nigeria, epitome of the distinct and continuing role of pidgin as a language of the workplace in West Africa. The study is largely based on archival materials and oral interviews of some former African employees. Notably, British colonial authorities adopted pidgin as a language of government in Northern Nigeria, as they lacked a wider medium for inter-ethnic communication. African political agents were employed as intermediaries, based on their knowledge of pidgin and other local languages, enabling them bridge communication between government and chiefs. And pidgin was hard to replace.Keywords: intermediaries, pidgin, colonial administration, Northern Nigeria, evolution

  • The metonymic and metaphoric conceptualisations of the heart in Akan and
           English
    • Authors: Esther S. Afreh
      Abstract: The paper examines the metaphorical and metonymic structure of the heart in Akan (a Kwa language in West Africa,) and English, within the framework of the Conceptual Metaphor Theory (CMT), formulated by Lakoff and Johnson (1980). My aim is to explore the ways in which akoma, ‘the heart’, is used in Akan to express human experiences and also to compare the conceptualisations of the heart in Akan to those in English in order to establish whether the two languages manifest any cross-conceptual, cross-linguistic or cross-cultural differences. The data reveal that there are no striking differences between English and Akan with respect to the metaphoric and metonymic conceptualisations of the heart. The differences in the language-specific conceptualisations are attributed to the cultural models embedded in the two languages.Keywords: heart, metaphor, metonymy, Conceptual Metaphor Theory, cultural models

  • The Pragmatics of Political Apology in Ghana’s Contemporary Politics
    • Authors: Kofi Agyekum
      Abstract: The paper discusses political apology in the 4th republic of Ghanaian contemporary politics from 2013 to 2015. It taps its data from apologetic speeches by political officials and from apologies rendered to politicians. The paper discusses the semantics and pragmatics of political apology. It examines the use of the language of apology, paying attention to expressives, commissives and persuasion, by drawing on the speech act of apology and political discourse analysis (PDA). It concludes that the obligation on the part of the offender to apologise and for the offended to accept the apology and to forgive for socio-political harmony is driven by both the social pact and the Ghanaian communalistic context.Keywords: political apology, political discourse analysis, persuasion, reconciliation, culture

  • Pyramids and Prejudice: A Study of Cultural Discrimination in Lauretta
           Ngcobo’s And they didn’t die
    • Authors: Sophia I. Akhuemokhan, H. Oby Okolocha
      Abstract: A South African classic, Lauretta Ngcobo’s novel, And they didn’t die, explores the nexus of hegemony, culture, and transformation under apartheid rule. Edward Said’s thesis on the hierarchy of culture provides the conceptual framework for an analysis of politico-cultural agency in Ngcobo’s novel. Three characters in the narrative—Siyalo, Jezile, and Lungu—are used to comment on the cultural dynamics inherent in three different but interlocking sites: the nine-to-five working environment, rural Bantu culture, and the ambiguous location of “African Whiteness.” The paper establishes that the life of each character betrays culture’s negative discriminating power and the amplification of negativity by State policy.Keywords: prejudice, culture, apartheid, industrialism, patriarchy

  • Art Studies in Ghana: Whose Responsibility?
    • Authors: Kwame Amoah Labi
      Abstract: While Ghana has centuries of tradition in producing some significant art, the literature on Ghanaian art suggests a preponderance of Euro-American writing about it, and on the contrary a paucity of Ghanaian scholars’ contribution to the country’s art studies. This paper examines some of the scholarship and Ghanaian participation in art discourse. It proposes some measures to change the trend by introducing art history departments focusing on degree programmes and graduate studies, and creating a local platform for indigenous voices and perspectives to cross-fertilize the knowledge in the discipline for the enrichment of the global discourse on Ghana’s art.Keywords: art studies, scholarship, African art, art history, faculty

  • The revolutionary poems of Tayo Olafioye
    • Authors: Clement Eloghosa Odia
      Abstract: This paper examines the revolutionary poems of Tayo Olafioye in order to demonstrate how his radical thought is depicted in his poems. To achieve this purpose, a study of one of his collections of poems, entitled A carnival of looters, is undertaken. In the study, we discover that proverbs are the central technique used in depicting critical ideas in the poems. The paper concludes that proverbs are used for expressing reformative messages as means of mobilisation and conscientisation of the masses in order to achieve social change.Keywords: revolution, mobilisation, conscientisation, proverbs, physicalism

  • Surrealism, Subversion, and Storytelling in Véronique Tadjo’s As the
           crow flies
    • Authors: Nii Okain Teiko
      Abstract: This paper seeks to examine Tadjo’s art of storytelling in As the crow flies, focusing on her approach which is partly surrealistic and partly traditional in blending several artistic modes, such as poetry, narration, drama, myth-making, and imagistic symbols. The examination establishes Tadjo’s style in the art of storytelling as an innovator who breaks with the traditional relationships between narration and plot; and introduces a fluid and liberating style which has “no frontiers”. This approach of postmodernism radicalizes the traditional mode and subverts the craft of storytelling. The paper makes the claim that Tadjo utilizes several principles of surrealism to relate the disconnection and unreality of human stories in which the unconscious is used as a source material to deal with life’s ills and traumas.Keywords: micro-text, surrealism, outer frame, femino-centric, imagistic symbols
