Who Is An Average Ghanaian…?

I came across this blog; Kitchen Floor Cockroach by a Ghanaian blogger who also happened to be a law student in Accra, Ghana. Before continuing, this blog-post is aimed at who is considered the AVERAGE Ghanaian.  Do you have any idea who that person is? What qualities define that “average-ness“?

Question: Who, do you consider to be an average Ghanaian?

Is he…

Ghana's Fashion Mogul, Ozwald Boateng

A man with a steady job earning between 1000.00ghc and 1500.00ghc per month?

A man with a car which he drives on the regular?

A man who shares a two bedroom flat with a friend so that he may defray cost and save more?

A man who eats out regularly at between 6-8 Ghana Cedis a plate?

A man who if he so chooses travels internationally once a year?


A Taxi Driver in Ghana.

A man with a part-time job earning between 150-400 Ghana Cedis per month?

A man who takes the occasional taxi but moves primarily on tro-tros (commuters)?

A man who rents a small a single room which he shares with his wife and child?

A man who always eats at home or from the ‘corner caterer’ for less that 2 Ghana Cedis a day?

A man who has seen neither the inside of a plane nor the ‘Welcome To…’ arc of a neighboring country?


Is that an average Ghanaian meal?

A man who does odd jobs here and there for whatever is given to him?

A man who takes the occasional tro-tro but primarily walks to his destinations?

A man who has a kiosk or rents a mat when the sun turns in?

A man who survives on sporadic meals?

A man who thinks of travel only as a means to take him back to the bosom of his village?

….or is there yet another man/woman who forms the benchmark of the average Ghanaian?
