‘Waakye’ is arguably among the top three most enjoyed meals by Ghanaians.
It is considered by some Ghanaians as the best breakfast meal and that could be very true, considering the long queues we see every morning at popular ‘Waakye’ joints in the country (well, before coronavirus came to disrupt our normal way of living).
A lot more people prefer to have their ‘Waakye’ served in leaves and those who are heavily concerned about hygiene love to have theirs served in takeaway packs.
But one form of packaging that no Ghanaian ever expected is ‘Waakye in a jar’!
Yesterday, photos of ‘Waakye in a jar’ surfaced on Twitter and that has got a lot of Ghanaians talking, eventually resulting in the creation of the hashtag: #WaakyeLivesMatter.
Waakye in a jar. Members of Waakye Eaters Association (WEA), we need to have a meeting on Drive Time on @joy997fm today at 2pm. What do you have to say about this? 😄 #DriveOnJoy #WaakyeLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/KFcgU17c4r— Lexis Bill (@lexisbill) June 17, 2020
the Waakye we know in Ghana 🇬🇭 is in the first frame, the second frame is not from a Ghanaian home and I can lay my head for that. Moreover you can never disrespect our Ghanaian culture with this stupid thing called packaging. #WaakyeLivesMatter and #OneMan can’t change it🔥 pic.twitter.com/fS0x6Dd8Us— 🇬🇭Nungua Justin Bieber🇬🇭 (@p_incode) June 17, 2020
