Ela's Spoken Word

Culture meets capitalism

Children walking up to cars acting for one cedi.

The sun is touching my skin, 

As we’re driving through my city.

Everybody is asking for money 

But I didn’t know that Ghanaian money was just a product of the colony

I am happy because I love my culture and I don’t see racism 

But I realised, that everywhere I go, I find European capitalism.


(1) Cedi is the name of Ghana’s official currency.
