Wobeye Kese by Mercy Ohemaa

This is a twi gospel song and I must say, Twi is a complex language. Thank God African languages like Asian ones are based on sound and not on letters like the European languages. I love their music but this being the first twi lyrics I’ve tried to read, I think I’ll be staying away from formal learning of twi. I’ll stick to writing Bantu languages and trying to speak others.
