Gabriel Barima

Gabriel Barima is a Ghanaian politician and the former District Chief Executive of the Ahafo Ano South District in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. He is well known for making popular the Akan word "Tweaa"; the "Tweaa" was said at the function. Tweaa, an Akan interjection used to express contempt for a statement. Barima was captured on video expressing anger at the audience, after an unknown individual said "Tweaa" during his speech, at an end of year event at the district directorate; the video went viral on social media leading to coverage by traditional media. Quote from the video: "Who made that'tweaa' sound? Am I your size?... I have been given the platform to talk. You were not given the platform to talk, and so, what you are saying, nobody is listening except mine. "Am I your colleague? Do you think you're my colleague?... You behave like you're talking to your co-equal. Am I your co-equal? If you're a hospital worker, who are you? Why do you have to behave in that manner? I've ended my speech. I'm not talking again.

If you don't respect people... I'm not talking again. Take your programme." People began making their own meanings to the phrase other than traditional meaning. A typical example is the spelling of the word in another way as "Tweeaa" to mean Traditional Way of Expressing Anger at Antagonism. "Tweaa" made its way to the Parliament of Ghana and its use was banned by Edward Adjaho, the speaker of parliament. The former president of Ghana, President Mahama has used the related phrase "Am I your co-equal?" which featured in the viral video and "Tweaa" itself, whilst delivering the state of nation address in parliament. The "Tweaa" expression has grown in such popularity that a Ghanaian developer has made an Android Application for it. WHO SAID TWEAAAA AHAFO ANO SOUTH DCE
