Akwaaba in Côte d'Ivoire
"AKWAABA" means 'welcome' in twi, a language of the Ashanti people of our dear neighboring nation Ghana. It also has the same meaning in Côte d’Ivoire. Therefore we say Akwaaba to you. Welcome to Côte d’Ivoire a.k.a Ivory Coast. This platform has been set to educate and display a different side of my beloved nation, Côte d’Ivoire, through videos, ideas, and images of our music, arts, film, literature, cultures, traditions, food, sports, dances, and everything in between. I dearly hope that you go visit it for yourself one day, but until that day please care to look, read, and discover. Thank you.
