The title of this book Mo Dem’ Koo! means ‘Tell me, please’, but inferringly, it means ‘Ask me how I feel, please’.
It was against social norms for the youngster to greet, but rather appeal to the elderly to ask of his state of health, hence the title which one usually hears in some Dangbe towns in the mornings.
The contents of Mo Dem’ Koo! are an attempt to scratch the surface of and collect some traditional salutations and greetings, as well as a few, simple customs and practices of the Dangme people.
It is a guide to the resourceful teacher who is interested in researching into deeper depths of the contents, in order to get good material for his lesson.₵12.00₵12.00Quick View

Street life in the slums of Accra is realistically portrayed in this socially-commited, subtle novel about four educated women who are inspired by the plight of a 14-year old girl, Fofo. As the main characters convert their library center into a practical street initiative, the novel invokes the squalor, health risks, and vicious cycles of poverty and violence that drive children to the streets and women to prostitution; and, from which, ultimately, no one in the society is free.₵30.00₵30.00Quick View
In this book, Emeritus Professor Jacob U. Gordon has brought together both historical and current literature in traditional African leadership to focus on critical issues of leadership and governance in Africa. The book sets out to provide students of African leadership and development, educators, politicians, traditional leaders and practitioners with a toolbox for understanding the changing role of traditional rulers/chiefs and its future in African life.
It examples leadership dynamics of past African leaders such as Abu Bakr II (14th century), Chaka Zulu, Queen Hatshepsut, Hannibal of Carthage, Makeda the Queen of Sheba, King Mansa Musa, Haile Selassie and Yaa Asantewaa.
It is the author’s hope that this book will help the reader to better understand the complexities of traditional leadership in Africa and key considerations; to appreciate the values of traditional African leadership; and to develop a better appreciation of the importance of good leadership and governance in a global and competitive world that yearns for sustainable peace and security.₵30.00Quick View
This book bares the public face and the private parts of Ghana’s tourist attractions. Kofi Akpabli is a journalist and an author who has travelled across Ghana. He has written on the culture of a lovely people; their lifestyles and environment. When he was voted for two years running by CNN as the Best Arts and Culture writer in Africa, he knew he owed the land of his birth a special duty. For nearly two years, Kofi travelled once more, across-country; engaging people, places and events to document the experience.
Romancing Ghanaland brings to Ghanaian readers a beautiful testament of their beloved nation and shows the rest of the world why Ghana remains God’s own country.
“Kofi romanticises about the places he visits in a manner that engages us to re-examine our attitude towards our God-given environment.” TREC
“I have been trying to figure out what the X-factor in Kofi Akpabli’s work is and I think I have it. It is his ability to let Ghana speak to him instead of speaking ‘at’ Ghana.” Prof Esi Sutherland, Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana₵40.00Quick View
