Ghanaian Italian drummer, Emmanuel Sarfo has encouraged Ghanaians living abroad to have their children learn local languages ​​in addition to foreign languages.

Speaking on SVTV Africa with DJ Nyaami, the ‘Drum Prophet’ as he is widely known, indicated that it would be wise for parents to speak Ghanaian languages ​​with their children.

By doing so, he claims, they will have no trouble communicating each time they visit their home country.

“For me, I speak two quite well but it also depends on how you are brought up. Some parents do not allow them to speak the local language. It’s not fair and that’s my point of view. They are expected to know their language so they don’t find themselves missing when they visit,” he said.

Emmanuel said being multilingual has several advantages and is a great opportunity to explore. Having lived in Italy for years before moving to the UK, Emmanuel speaks Twi, Ewe, English, French and Italian.

The Drum Prophet is available on all social media platforms with the same name.
