Author Eddie Danso is set to launch his book “Misadventures of a Secondary School Boy” in January as part of a three phase project to bring books written by Ghanaian authors into the educational system.

Other books to be launched include, “My Book of Africa, “Color is not a Boundary”, “I want to Be”, and “My Book of Ghana”.

Speaking in an interview with AmeyawTv, the British-based author mentioned that his experience in Ghana whilst he was in secondary school influenced his decision to write “Misadventures of a Secondary School Boy”.

“This book sort of captures my experiences in Ghana. Mind you, I was a bit of a naughty boy. Put it this way, I was a privileged kid as you would call it, I was a “dadaba”. But I didn’t like the title cos I used to hang out with the “Oconnors”… I just didn’t understand why everyone was a “dadaba” because I liked the “kubolor” things. I liked playing “Chaskele”, and everything is in there, how I survived secondary school from form 1-5, and anyone in school right now would appreciate it. It is a true story, told untruthfully”.

Mr. Danso also added that his decision to author children’s books came out of the fact that he realized that most of the books been used in Ghana were by Nigerian authors.

“I asked a gentleman to show me some of the books they use in schools in Ghana. And then they came with ten books. Out of the ten books, there was only one was by a Ghanaian author. The other nine were by Nigerian authors. I’ve got nothing wrong with Nigerian authors selling their books in Ghana. But here lies the problem, we are doing away with traditional names like your “Amas”, “Kojos”, and “Kofis”, if we don’t rectify the issue now, there’s gonna be a time where we’ll start using your “Tundes”, your “Baba Tundes” and your “Sholas”.

Watch full Interview Below:

Eddie Danso hopes to partner with the Government of Ghana as well some some celebrities to make this project a success.

Eddie Danso is a Ghanaian who was born and raised in both in Britain. He is a  proud old Student of Presbytarian Secondary School. He is married with four boys.
