Accra living no be easy

Ahh, yeah, trying to get away yeah.. Accra living no be easy

I started the 9 to 5 life and its as hard as predicted, if not harder. There was a time I had to work late, I got home and asked my mum, “How do you people manage this 9 to 5 life every single week day? I am tired!” She said, “You just started.” Way to go mum 😦 But point is, its tiring papa.

Trying to make that money, trying to get that honey, chale no be easy

EI! I may not have the right to complain because my work environment is relaxed and casual (My boss just wants the job done, God bless her soul) but its not easy. Staring at the computer screen for hours, getting confused over lines of code you wrote yourself,
someone said “Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.” sigh. And the weekends? They are even more stressful than the weekdays. I’m here listening to Efya’s Accra living, Let’s go(I don’t even know the title) and “Accra living no be easy” finally made sense to me.

Some times you gotta go, somewhere to cool your head, breeze in the air, sky so clear, no worries to bother you there

Petrol prices keep rising, food keeps getting expensive, kelewele has become a luxury etc etc I won’t even talk about the government, them tire me.Always on the job, having meetings, trying to catch bugs reported by clients, replying to emails, it never ends chale. But as Efya said, I need to get away (I think that’s the title of the song).To where? I have no idea especially now that vacationing in Ghana has become so expensive, but the president said Dubai is cheap, let me see if my 350gh can afford it. So who will get away with me?

C’mon let’s get away, Volta, Sunyani,Bolga, Dubai. Let’s go, I don’t care where we go, C’mon let’s get away, let’s go, let’s go
