Folklore in Ghana frequently revolves around a character who usually goes by the name Anansi, or “Spider”. Anansi typically plays the infamous trickster you love to hate. Anansi is mostly admired for his cunning and for his ingenuity in solving problems that relate to his various appetites.
A common characteristic of Ghanaian folklore is the interactive nature of storytelling. At the beginning of the story the teller will recite a few common lines that will get a response from the listeners. Throughout the story any of the listeners may break in and sing a song by asserting that “they were there at the scene”.
