Some of you, The Mis-Educated Than His Ancestors (The METHA), are jerks. You are not only Caucasian mimics, but complete jerks!

How many times have we heard one Metha or another cry like a baby: “I went to Europe/America to train and become somebody, yet Africa (Ghana or Nigeria or Cameroon or such) does not want to give me a chance to put my skills to help develop the country”?

Even the fathers of soccer players cry like babies: “My son/daughter just wants to play for the Ghana National Team, or such, but the GFA asked for a bribe. And so he/she now plays for France.”

You jerks! Play for France. Play for England. Do whatever that you like!

Recently, another Mixed-Race idiot, whose African father is particularly a proud Metha, made some silly remarks about Cameroon. He says: “I am not Cameroonian. I am a French man. At the beginning of my career, when I was still in the shadows, my father contacted Fecafoot to give me a chance to play with the Cameroon national team. They demanded a huge sum of money from us for me to be able to play for the team. My father who was disgusted by their attitude then turned to France, this France that has given me a chance to show the world what I am capable of. Today that I have become the most expensive player in the world, Cameroon now calls me and attribute to a nationality which is not mine. I am French and I will remain French.”

I am not sure how these stupid, silly jerks are manufactured. No African, Woman-Born, says these horrid things about his own Motherland. Unless he’s born of a weird humanoid. But it seems to me that when humble, ordinary Africans travel to the west, and for some reason they make a team, or a degree, they are pumped with ego-elevating steroids to descend on the rest of us in Africa, like a bunch of marauding tyrants, demanding to be made head of this or that, or demanding to play here or there.

What is it? You need your balls licked to stand upright? The jerks that these Metha are! Who should worship you? You don’t want to go to the family farm? You’d rather lambast your family farm, and trek to your oppressors’ farm—farm it to make it bigger and more productive so it can take over your Ancestors Farms? Go ahead, jerks! We are tired of your complaining every chance you get. The jerks that you are!

What has Africa done for you? Look at you, dripping in emotional garbage. The traumatized, egotistic bunch of morons that you are. Look at you!

When the Metha is caught, pants-down, as a coward—who has left his own family farm behind to make someone else’s farm bigger, he defends his cowardice with the emotional garbage, with the usual drivel: “What has Africa done for me?”

Sadly, the Metha don’t think of themselves as jerks, because jerk self-knowledge is very hard to come by. They want Africa to do something for them. Riddle me this: They are Africans, but Africa must do something for them? Really? Emotional garbage!

~ 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. If you enjoyed this essay and would like to support more content like this one, please pour the Ancestors some Libation in support of my next essay, or you can go bold, very bold and invoke them. Here's my CashApp: $TheRealNarmer


  1. He recently went to Cameroon to an ecstatic welcome and is not detached in any way at all. Google to find out more. His father’s experience has not affected him.

  2. This is more of a challenge for the whole leadership in Africa to be fair to, too many of such stories all over the world.

  3. Sometimes it’s pathetic that we overlook talents while others will embrace us. See how the West embraces our athletes while we ignore them when they can’t afford to pay bribes and demands? Don’t blame these guys too much, blame our leaders who make it possible for them to seek solution elsewhere

  4. Nana Kwamena Ansah III No one is overlooking talent in Africa. In fact, we produce the talent. The point is that the talent you are selling, no one here is ready to buy it for the price you want. So, you sold your talent to the highest bidder. Admit that much and stop complaining. This kind of gaslighting African nations for not buying talent they are unwilling/unable to pay for is unbecoming of a generation of cowards!

  5. Dade Afre Akufu people sell talent here? We should stop complaining about our various organisations overlooking talents? For real😂? Is this for attention seeking or you’re ignorant of the happenings around the world? Boiiii

  7. Kaafueda Vanderpuye Hmm when one resorts to insults to make a point my interest just dwindles.

    All I got from this tirade is that as usual we must overlook the short comings of our beloved continent and just sweep it under the carpet.
    When are we going to address the real issues, when is this demand for bribery at every turn goig to stop? Why are we as a society enabling this? But no as usual let’s be Africans and pretend it’s not happening or it’s normal and let’s just point the fingers at others.
    And yes let’s just use big words to insult others instead of finding the root cause of issues and resolving then for a better society.

    Africans are powerful people and until we stop this pettiness we will not advance as a nation.

  8. Nandita Vanderpuye Ayoola I see this simply as rhetoric, not intended to be taken personally…Unless of course it applies to you, which I don t think is the case. There’s something TOXIC about this culture of silence in the face of atrocious, abominable LARCENY! The GASLIGHTING is TOO MUCH!!!

  9. Nandita Vanderpuye Ayoola & Kaafueda Vanderpuye, I think you miss the figurative lesson of the essay. So so complaining about Africa, your home, your nation is also a form of gaslighting as it serves to fundamentally distort our notions of self. Several friends of mine who lived abroad have children who have competed for their various father/mother nations in West Africa (Ghana and Nigeria to be precise) without the payment of a single bribe.

    That part of the narrative is also true. It is important to critique corruption, but to critique African corruption like the USA or France is not corrupt is mere Pharisaism. That’s the hypocrisy. That must also be called out. France, and by implication the French Team, are not successful because they are incorruptible! That is the point.

  10. Massa truth is his father contacted Fecafot truth is bribe was demanded, his father didn’t have it so he sent him to where he doesn’t need to bribe
