4 Things That Ghanaian Mothers Say That Makes It Impossible To Argue With Them

Before we even begin, ‘yes,’ we love our mothers over here. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have the unique talent for annoying the life out of us. And there is absolutely no way that you’re winning an argument with your mom. Not a single time. Don’t even think about it. If you even come close they’ll always have one of these trump cards up their sleeve.

“Oh, I’ll Pay You Back” Followed By “I Carried You In My Womb For 9 Months”


Loaning money to your mother is always an extreme sport. Mostly because there is no such thing. It’s either a gift or nothing at all. If you slack and give your mother a “loan,” you’ll even be shy to go and ask for your money because you know what’s waiting for you: “I carried you in my womb for 9 months.” Seriously, what do you even say to that?

There’s a reason that this quote turned into such a popular meme. It is literally the only thing that you’re going to hear if you even look sideways at outside food when you’re with your mom. Truth be told though, when you’re finally on your own in university and broke, you’ll realize that your mom was actually right. There is rice at home.

If you’re one of those people who’s always spending time on their phone, then you dare not fall sick.

This usually comes after they’ve absolutely had it with you. When a Ghanaian mother just can’t deal with your behaviour anymore they pull out the “wo be nyin abeto,” which is basically the showstopper. They are done with you. Go and continue the argument with your future children and see how you like it.
