She has taken to social media shown several girls dressed up in colourful Kente cloth and adorned with a lot of beads on their neck, arms and waist.

She made this assertions in a Facebook post ; "there's a difference between stories told of, and witnessing first-hand, the puberty rites performed by the people of Krobo".

Puberty rites called "Dipo" among the Krobos is a very prominent event which has been carried out for years despite the influencers of education and modernization. The practice is held very strongly by the Krobos and it is ensured that every female in the tribe undergoes the rites. The rites are held every year between the Months of April and May.

During these days the girls are dressed in a special way to show that they are initiates. A durba is held during which the girls performed the "Wama dance" amidst singing and in the presence of onlookers.

According to Berla Mundi, the picture shown was allowed by parents of these girls for the purpose of storytelling.
