Age-Gap Amusements! The Metha’s Colored Marriage.

NTOABOMA: A man of incredible means marries a woman, who’s young enough to be his grand-daughter, and the Mis-Educated Than His Ancestor (the Metha) cries foul.

Yet, the Metha enjoys Hollywood Films of the same nature and he brags about its “cinematic” mise en scène. Everything Hollywood presents, the Metha, assures us, is “beautiful”.

I understand the Metha’s cognitive dissonance (hell I live with them), but what’s more striking is the Metha’s ability to float in and out of African traditions, and his wanton ability to stray in and out of European cultural formlessness.

The Metha is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. He’s a mystery, a gravitational force bending everyone’s will to his formlessness.

You see, the Metha insists that marriage ought to be a Private Business, not to be regarded as the Public Institution that his ancestors had formulated it in NTOABOMA. Only, when it comes to age-gap amusements (dating they call it), in the sense that a man accosts a young woman as his muse, this picture is perfect in London, just not in Accra.

Something is awry.

~ Success is a horrible teacher. It seduces the ignorant into thinking that he can’t lose. It seduces the intellectual into thinking that he must win. Success corrupts; Only usefulness exalts. ~ WP. Narmer Amenuti (which names translate: Dances With Lions), was born by The River, deep within the heartlands of Ghana, in Ntoaboma. He is a public intellectual from the Sankoré School of Critical Theory, where he trained and was awarded the highest degree of Warrior Philosopher at the Temple of Narmer. As a Culture Critic and a Guan Rhythmmaker, he is a dilettante, a dissident and a gadfly, and he eschews promotional intellectualism. He maintains strict anonymity and invites intellectuals and lay people alike to honest debate. He reads every comment.
