Do you still hold on firmly to your traditions or have you been brainwashed by western culture?
Well, traditions vary from one community to another. What is done in a community in Kenya for instance during a burial, naming or wedding ceremony is very different from what’s done in another community in Ghana.
To some, a funeral is more of a celebration while to others it’s the saddest moment in life and those related to the departed soul are supposed to mourn and are not even allowed to move around until the unspecified time has elapsed.
Well, the internet is abuzz with photos of a Star beer-bottle shaped coffin that have gone viral. A Ghanaian man identified as Saddick Adams posted pictures from a funeral where the deceased was being carried away in a ‘weird’ coffin and this has left online users talking for days.
According to some, the man was buried in such a coffin to fulfill his wish or maybe the Star Beer was his favourite beer brand.
In some places in Ghana and West Africa at large, the coffins are often shaped to fit the occupation of the deceased.
Well, here are photos of the ‘beer-shaped’ coffin that everyone is talking about
