.one too many.

…a place for waste…

a somewhat dry cultural exploration of Ghana,

a fine West African country that I’ve never been to

but I like nonetheless.

To begin,

in Ghana,

there are only 7 male names to choose from.

Kosi, Kojo, Kobby, Koku, Yaba, Kofi

and Kwami.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

and Saturday.

Figure it out.

Moving on.

As it so happens,

Ghanians also celebrate their dead

with all-night throw downs.

No matter if they died in Accra or the Bronx,

it’s all deejays, dance moves and donations


no tears, turmoil or tragedy.

Fascinating no?

And in conclusion,

My twi name is Kojo.

(Actually it’s Kojo Abaka but now I’m just complicating things.)

and if I die,

just shake your ass for a few minutes

and move on with your lifes.
