It is understandable that Nii Ayikoi Otoo is concerned about the renaming of the popular Ghanaian delicacy ‘Yↄ kɛ gari’ to ‘Gobɛ’.
Food is an important aspect of culture, and changing the name of a dish can have implications on the preservation of a community’s traditions and customs.
However, it is also important to note that language is constantly evolving, and the names of dishes can change over time.
It is possible that the name ‘Gobɛ’ has become more commonly used in certain communities, and it may not necessarily be a deliberate attempt to erase the Ga Dangbe culture.
It is important to have open discussions about the preservation of cultural traditions, including food, and to find ways to honor and respect these traditions while also allowing for evolution and growth.
