Twene Jonas, is a well known loudmouth, who has created a niche for himself, as a critic of bad leadership and poor development, in the country.
One article on modernghana.com, describes, Twene Jonas the Ghanaian young man living in America as a revolutionary by all standards, as his unconventional approach of getting us and our leaders to do the right thing is mind-boggling, because according to his the writer, revolution doesn’t go with diplomacy.
Twene Jonas, who is a viral vlogger and content creator has been in the news lately, as his attacks, may have moved away from the political class and made its way into the chieftaincy circles, where he blames our chiefs, for overseeing over the degradation of our environment, thanks to the illegal activities of galamsey.
Twene Jonas, in one of his many videos, mentioned the Asante king while blasting Ghanaian chiefs and leaders in his latest rant about galamsey destroying water bodies. "...Ghana everyone is a thief, they don't speak the truth, including the Asantehene. He couldn't speak the truth but if you watch, he has been listening to me now, hence, he has to speak the truth now," he said.
This was taken by many Ghanaians on social media as derogatory to the Asantehene leading to calls for him to apologise. A sub-chief of Otumfuo even beseeched him to come down from America and apologise or suffer the consequences of his actions. Other groups came on social media to rain curses on Jonas for his insults on Otumfuo.
Not long after, Twene Jonas brushed off the calls for him to apologise, saying he will not because all Ghanaian leaders are not wise enough. Jonas even went further to mock those who cursed him to rather use that energy to curse NAM1 who had squandered their money.
In one of his viral videos, Twene had taken a swipe at a man who reportedly cursed him. In a self-recorded video on Instagram, Twene Jonas was seen addressing the cursing escapade and jabbed the man at the center of it. The "glass nkoaa" crooner indicated that he was shocked that the man believed his curse was going to work.
In making nonsense of the viral curse video, Jonas said the man would have been better off if he had boiled the egg and eaten it with braised rice popularly known as Angwamo. Jonas went on to say the man was suffering from malnutrition caused by protein deficiency in his diet and that the egg could have done him more good should he have eaten it.
There have since been several back and forth, but what may even be more funnier, may be the TV3 cartoonist, Tilapia, who shared a funnier cartoon of his debacle and has generated social media commentary on it. In the post with the cartoon below, which depicts the gods, already vacating their post, these were some of the comments that followed.
