A reply made by a Ghanaian cultured born on a globally popular television show has been lauded by many netizens, including the host, Steve Harvey.
Responding to an ‘Are you married’ question by the host, the Ghanaian named Sammy as a contestant on the The Steve Harvey Morning Show, responded, ‘No Please’.
The response got the American ace TV host empathically wowed, as to an American-born, it sounded appalling in the States.
Sammy, defending his comment, maintained that the Ghanaian culture required one to add the word ‘please’ when answering an elderly person.
”Our morality, in terms of our…. culture values, you respecting the older person, trying to be more respectful, the Ghanaian born stated.”
While the ‘No Please’ sounds offensive in the States, the host required Sammy to ask him a question, and his response with the ‘No Please’ answer sounded offensive.
”What’s your favorite food, ‘No please’, Steve replied to a question asked by the Ghanaian.”
In America, when you ask me of my favorite food and I say no please, it is because it ain’t your business, So No please……., Steve Harvey empathically responded.”
Nonetheless, the ace American TV host commended the Ghanaian culture as pretty cool.
Harvey has been a boxer, an autoworker, an insurance salesman, a carpet cleaner, and a mail carrier. He first performed stand-up comedy on October 8, 1985, at the Hilarities Comedy Club in Cleveland, Ohio. In the late 1980s, Harvey was homeless for three years.
In the year 2019, the Year of Return, Steve Harvey and his family were welcomed to Ghana by the Minister of Tourism, Babara Oteng Gyasi and a committee at the W.E.B DuBois Center in Accra.
