In a recent social media post, the well-known social media influencer and activist, Efia Odo, addressed the concerns of Ghanaians living in the diaspora. With a passive-friendly tone, she boldly expressed her thoughts about the challenges faced by these individuals and offered a suggestion for those finding life abroad difficult.
Efia Odo’s comments were sparked by a viral video featuring a Ghanaian woman lamenting the rising prices of foodstuff in her host country. This video shed light on the struggles some Ghanaians abroad face when trying to access their favorite African food items, especially in the context of the financial pressures of diaspora life.
The video raised discussions about the reality of traveling abroad in search of better opportunities, revealing that it might not be as idyllic as some might have imagined. On the other hand, there were those who criticized the woman in the video, urging her to return to Ghana if life was as tough as she claimed.
I never understand why some Ghanaians abroad are always complaining about the hardships they’re facing. Come back to Ghana if Europe or America is difficult. Like shut up! You know damn well you’d rather be there than in Ghana.

She questioned the constant complaints from Ghanaians living abroad, stating, “I never understand why some Ghanaians abroad are always complaining about the hardships they’re facing. Come back to Ghana if Europe or America is difficult. Like, shut up! You know damn well you’d rather be there than in Ghana.”
Efia Odo’s blunt remarks struck a chord with those contemplating the struggles of Ghanaians abroad and the nostalgic pull of their homeland. Her words also ignited a conversation about Ghana’s economic conditions and the never ending discourse surrounding Ghanaians seeking refuge overseas to escape from the hardships endured by their compatriots back home..
