Wisdom is like a Baobab tree




This is a proverb of the Ewe People of Ghana. The Ewe is a main ethnic group resident across the Southeastern region of Ghana, the Volta Region in Southern Togo and in Western Benin Republic.  The Ewe people speak the Ewe language which is closely related to the Gbe Languages like Fon and the Aja of Togo and Benin. 

There are different stories about the origins of the Ewe people. One account says they are originally from Ketu, a Yoruba area in Benin. Another account says they are from Oyo, another Yoruba town in Western Nigeria while a third account says they are from Kotu or Amedzowe east of the Niger.

The Ewe people have some interesting concepts about the place of the man in the family, respect, leadership, child naming, God or religion.
Here is a challenge. Do some research about the Ewe people of Ghana and post a comment below  on what you have learnt about them on the areas mentioned above. The best comment will win a UBA branded gift item.

And in case you are wondering how big a Baobab tree can be, see it below;

  14. Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn't disappoint me just as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I genuinely thought you would have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you could possibly fix dev if you weren't too busy seeking attention.
