Tic expressed his dismay on social media, stating that the economic situation has become so challenging that he and his family can barely afford to put food on the table. He specifically highlighted the shocking price of Kenkey, a popular Ghanaian dish, which now stands at GH5. This steep increase has forced them to cut back on their consumption of Kenkey, despite it being one of their favorite meals.
The hiplife artist reminisced about how, throughout his life, Kenkey was one of the most affordable food options, and he never expected its price to skyrocket to this extent. Tic also lamented the current GH5 price tag on coconuts and expressed deep concerns about the overall health of Ghana’s economy.
In his own words, Tic said, “Honestly, my family and I love Kenkey, but we’ve had to reduce our consumption because a single ball of Kenkey now costs GHC 5. I never imagined a day would come when Kenkey, one of the most affordable foods in my lifetime, would become so expensive. Can you believe that even a single coconut now costs GHC 5? This is the harsh reality we’re facing.” Below is the tweet
