Pure Akan in an interview on Hitz FM with Andy Dosty revealed that his grandparents influenced his speaking of the typical Twi language.
The ‘Me Sika Duro’ hitmaker explained that his parents used to send him to the village to visit his grandparents whenever it’s vacation. So speaking deep Twi with them always influenced him to adopt the speaking of deep Twi as a young boy.
He added that he can speak English very well too but he always prefers to speak Twi because he’s proud of it. And he is proud to be an Asante.
He also said, he doesn’t just speak typical Twi in his songs only but speak it with his parents in the house as well.
