In some parts of Ghana, people woke up today to another harmattan all charged up and reloaded and it seems the season either got confused by how long the month of January is or it’s probably having some mood swings.
Being it the typical trait for most Ghanaians to take to Twitter to share their sentiments on situations they cannot control, and make some comic relief out of it, the platform has been running wild with several hilarious tweets about the reloaded ‘Harmattan Pro Max’.
While some say the harmattan returned to give us the extra time that Black Stars needed to beat Comoros, others are also convinced that Harmattan in Ghana is just bipolar or it simply lost its way home.
One tweet read, “This second round of Harmattan be hard pass. I prepared tom brown and I went to get Milk, I came back to meet Chris Brown (konkonte)” while another read, “This harmattan Dey behave like shoddy. Very indecisive”.
Of course, the members of the anti-bathing association are very excited about this new development, however, members of the pink lips association are worried and concerned about how to maintain or restore their lips back to its glory after the season.
Personally, my bigger worry is how the prices of Vaseline and moisturizers might shoot up soon because in this country, everything is an opportunity for vendors.
Meanwhile, Nigeria also seems to be experiencing the same fate, however, they are quite unsure if what they see is fog as should be or black soot since the atmosphere looks darker and people are wiping off what looks like dew from surfaces only to see it come off as black soot.
