The ongoing Olympic games in Tokyo seem to feature a lot of talents from Africa. As for the 4 x 100m relay, about four Ghanaian names with other nationalities were captured in the semi-finals. They were Musah Kojo (Denmark), Bismark Boateng (Canada), Lucas Ansah-Peprah (Germany) and Owen Ansah (Germany).
This made the Ghanaian-Investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni to post these Ghanaians running for other countries and said that "Africa has the talents, but others know how to use them. See how many of our own were on the tracks in that single event.
This seems to be true because most African footballers and athletes who change their native nationalities to European nationalities perform better. This according to some Ghanaians is because of good leadership in Europe and how well they invest in these talents.
Afia Pokuaa came under Manasseh Azure's post and said that "But you are anka you go die for this country? The nation that only celebrates those who get rich by foul means. We hate the truth. Tweaaa". Most Ghanaians after coming across her reactions said that they agree with her because Kelvin Prince Boateng, Owusu Abayie among others might have regretted playing for the Black Stars.
The Date Rush host, Giovani Caleb hilariously reacted to this post that the Ghana Team should have asked them in Twi to run backwards so as to take the first position. This turned out to generate a lot of funny comments from Ghanaians.
The Ghanaian Blogger, Ameyaw Debrah was just amazed that our own people could be trained like this by the Whiteman to defeat us in Tokyo. There is no doubt that Africa has the talent but the problem is our leaders are not ready to invest. They only want results. We always beg them for loans and other resources but we have everything a country needs to prosper.
