Episode 9 – A Promise of West Africa at Asanka
To the imagination of romantics, Ghana is synonymous with the idea of self-determination as the first country in Africa to get independence from colonial rule in 1956.
To realists, the country, modern day Ghana is complex like the geographical patterns on Kente cloth. It is a country wanting to re-imagine itself through the aspirations of its youth.
The one constant bridging the old and the new in Ghana is food.
This episode of Peas In A Pod takes a detour to Asanka, a restaurant in Northern Joburg, to not only mess with Ghanian food, but also a conversation with the son of Gambia and New Nation founder, Maudo Jallow.
