In Ghana, the Akuapem mountains hold significant cultural value beyond their breathtaking beauty. They represent respect, kindness, and authenticity. In the Akuapem dialect, these peaks are referred to as "Bepowso," which means "mountain top" but for the locals symbolizes a way of life and philosophy of elevation.
The Akuapem people are known for their warm hospitality, courtesy, and meaningful actions. They are said to be so graceful in their delivery of insults that you hardly notice them. The saying goes, "If you're looking for respect, climb the mountains," alluding to the esteemed reputation of those from the Akuapem traditional area.
Even though I was not raised amidst the peaks, my birth in the Akuapem mountains instilled in me a deep sense of belonging and connection to the land. Every time I return, I am struck by the peaceful tranquility and the refreshing mountain air. It feels like I am returning to my rightful place as an "Odehye" - a member of royalty among my people.
