Nigeria must admit Ghana is better - Ghana must go!

Published on: 13 November 2011

SuperSport's Nigerian editor Emeka Enyadike has written a soul-searching article in pidgin English finally admitting that the Super Eagles must learn from Ghana to avoid being whipped out from world football. Read his hilarious piece below:

My people talk say we big pass Ghana, nobody dey drag! We say we get money pass dem, dat wan na true. We even say story story, say na we been dey give dem work, dat wan dey too.

Me sef, na Ghana people follow teach me for skool. One thing wey Ghana people no go gree with us na about who sabi play ball pass and now wey we dey carry last, dem don dey Kampe.

Dis wan wey Africa cup of Nation don reach so, na siddon look we go dey look yet some people go still dey talk say “ Ghana must go”

Before we win de cup for 1980 wey Shagari come dash de green Eagles moto and house, Ghana been don win am 3 times, but as we dey jollification say we don win,na him dem come win am back wen we go Libya for 1982, dat time sef na Gadhafi pay dere transport After dat time, e come be like say naija come get power pass dem as we come dey win u-17 world cup like pure water.dem too come dey pursue us. Ghana come win Bronze medal for olumpics, we sef vex win Gold de next time.

Naija come even win Africa cup of nations for Tunisia, even first Ghana reach world cup 3 times, 2 times, naija reach second round. All de naija players just brekete for obodo oyibo, for jand, for Paris, for Itali. E be like say Ghana dey carry kpondo that time. Dem come begin plan, dem come begin to organize, and dem come begin to find better player and better Oyinbo coach.

See now, like play like play, Ghana don become Ogbonge team and we dey wonder how e happen? We go dey wonder! We just dey look like Lukman.

Na him we say make we go play dem friendly match for London. Ghana no hold joke oh, nothing friendly about that match, dem knack us 4 kpondo. Na Ghana wey don komot naija for de lats two Africa cup of nations .Dem win us wen dem be landlord for Ghana 2008, come win us again for Angola 2010 wen dem even play with dem small boys. Chei!

Next year wey be for Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, na Ghana wey everybody dey look becos of de way wey dem dey play and dem no dey fear anybody again. Make we no dey talk say “Ghana must go” again oh!

Ghana don come back and dem done balance. Dem dey Kampe! No shaking! Nothing do dem.

See de kain money wey dem dey pay for dere players for Obodo oyibo.Now sef,see those Alhaji dem for Dubai don come pay Assamoah Gyan money yanfu yanfu sake of say make him for come dance for dem.

Naija ! Make we wake up for sleep.Ghana don leave us .everytime we go dey say “Ghana must go.”

Maybe e go good if We fit go look wetin Ghana dey do well well and see wetin dem fit teach us.wetin wey we fit photocopy.

Shame no dey inside oh! Shame no dey inside, afterall dem be our brodas and our neigbours. Na we don dey teach dem business and so many other things but if na ball.

Like play,like play,dem even win the Fifa Junior world cup wey dem been call Egypt 2009.

Ghana don standby. Ghana don overtake us.even if we still dey talk say “Ghana must go”

When Ghana first reach worldi cup for Germany 2006, naija no show! Dem don sabi play sotaydem show us say no be who first call police dey win case. Dem reach world cup,dem reach second round. When we dey carry kpondo for South Africa 2010,Ghana nearly reach semi-finals.

Una say,we no go there go find out wetin dem dey do.If not oh Luiz suarez for Uruguay wey turn second Goal keeper, na wetin we for dey talk? Maybe dem for kuku win de world cup!

So I dey ask una, my people , wetin wey Ghana dey do ,wey we no fit do.No be say dem tall pass us or maybe say dem run pass us.

How come wey dem dey fit change coach but dem still dey win. We own na to change coach like wrappa sotay now , we no fit reach nations cup.

De wan wey tire me na say only Abedi Pele don supply three children to dem team.Wey our players dem children.Abi no wan sabi play ball.Haba!

As we dey always talk say “Ghana must go.” Ghana don go, leave us for loco. Ghana don dey go for de cup. Ghana , make una carry go.

    Good stuff;Sometime in the early 2000's Nyantekyi predicted that Ghana needs to be taken serious during a CAF awards ceremony in South Africa and he lamented further that Ghana is back to where she belong as far as soccer is concerned. Despite the fact that I criticise you a lot, I wish you more grease to you elbows for a good job done.

    This will be West Africa's Official language in the near future. Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Liberia can understand. Africa need a common Language to make trade easier. Wake up my pupil and stop the inferiority. Its Language that is putting us apart. How can a continent have over 1000000 languages and talk about unity? Are you mad?

    Wow! Amusing, I love the language. Some people are frustrated because they can't read and understand the language but if you are used to and undrstands it, it is very interesting. I love it. It is just like the slangs that people use in the US if you are not told the meaning, no matter your level of education and you are not familiar with the slangs, there is no way you can comprehend it. So is the pidgin english, meant for most west africa countries. Masterpiece!

    Its not the queens language..... Maybe history is not you friend. The queen has no language, the english language was adopted and changed to what is being spoken today by the so called English, just like Catholic was changed to Anglican. I beg spare me this small mind talk..... Appreciate the piece if you understand it......

    It is creole for Liberia and Sierra Leone and not krio brother Kofi Africa but in Nigeria, its called Pidgin English. The only difference is each and every country has its own accent and choice of words derived normally from its local dialect.In Ghana, its not not normally encouraged. Cheers

    My negative friends this is Nigeria's "unity" language an adaptation of the English language. This is what keeps Nigeria together cos Nigeria has hundreds of languages. But this English is spoken wide and in some places news are read with it. It is understtod and spoken by all including the very illiterate ones in the villages. Our illiterate Ghanaian brothers and sisters who live in Nigeria once you learn and speak this you are in business. This is unofficial ligua franca of Nigeria. If you dont understand something learn it. If Ghana can adopt something like this the usual "mente brofo" would not be said. To the issue of Ghana better in football than Nigeria, this is simple. It is the administration. Our back room staff are well organised and there is "little" curruption compared to Nigeria's grab it all without doing the right thing. Our people chop small but do the work. My broda una do well oo.

    What is this farce about the type of language that should or should not be posted here? The only language which should not be entertained here is foul language, which some of you hypocrites are stupidly using here. Now those of you who say you don't understand; well, how much did you pay to get stories posted here? What language is portrayed by photos 'borrowed' and posted from Spanish articles? WYSIWYG: hilarious piece indeed, by way of summary, he means to say, 'big naija you don know the tin, small Ghana's teaching you the tin, and you are fooling with the tin, saying Ghana must go'. Lol!

    the writer wont to tell all 9jas that they should stop bragging about sending Ghanaians away from Nigeria in 1983 and lean from us, the way football administration is being run over here but miss one point. Ghana fist send Nigerians away from Ghana in the 70s. so in short "Nigeria must go" was fist done by Ghana. go ask your fathers. GHANA 1st in everything. Ghana even teach 9ja how read & write. so Ona, u 4 show respect. I love the writer. All those 9ja ple on this forum na this ur bro they talk tru. I love this 9ja man. na God send

    I fynk this guy is trying to pump some sense into the head of the NFA but ask whether this arrogance Nigerians will heed to this advice. Any way we should drink water from our own cistern. we shouldn't let this eat into our head and work tirelessly until the cup is brought to Ghana.

    Nonsense, KKK! You come here often so you think you have the right to attack anything you don't like and brand it foolish? This is an article written by someone and I believe it passed the editorial scrutiny of the website that's why they posted it so who are you to question otherwise, with some mediocre excuse of comparing espn to ghanasoccernet. If you cannot read, just flip it and allow us who can to read and laugh and appreciate it. Simple! At times I get worried when educated people behave otherwise. Makes me question if it was worth it educating your likes after all. Pity and pettiness. Hahahahhaah! Get over it....... KKK

    Evrybody listen! I understand how u all feel,u supporting and those of u been again least 4 some of us who are aware (know) damage this language has cause the nigerian ppl we do not Wish to have or let it take over ghana. The general languages are english and french which are been thought in schools if any of u can come to nigerian the damage has caused them a lot 95% of nigeria can't speak good english because of the so called pidgin they call it. Those of u close to essien ask him about mikel when he came to chelsea,look at the way all of u here speak and our leaders, from the former prez to mill nigeria has not goten any1 to match the likes so pls good ppl of GHANA let us not encourage this language to envade our dear nation. Can u believe that cabinet members in nigeria forged certificate to go to universities etc cos they speak the language in school coming to write u are to write a different thing (english) That was y the envented neco because the could not pass the standard of west african edu waec (west african examination commision). Prevention is better than cure thank u ghana.
