Adom 106.3 FM, the leading radio station in Ghana, has recently introduced a fresh segment called Sɛdeɛ Yɛka No Nie on its morning show.
The primary objective of this segment is to enhance public awareness regarding common mistakes made in spoken and written Akan.
During the launch, Joshua Tigo, the station’s Programmes Manager, explained that the segment aims to rectify erroneous pronunciations, grammatical constructions, and expressions in the Akan language.
It will shed light on frequently misused words, proverbs, and other linguistic nuances while providing the correct forms for educational purposes.
Amoadu Christian Ohene, the Head of News and Current Affairs for the Adom Brands of Multimedia Group, will serve as the main facilitator of the segment, utilizing his extensive knowledge of Akan, teaching experience, and background in radio broadcasting.
