Akufo-Addo’s comment about the depreciation of the cedi, “Sika mp dede,” has social media a-buzz.

He discussed the issues that led to Ghana’s current economic situation, among other things, and then described some of the steps his government was taking to reverse the downturn and put the economy back on the path to growth.

He spent a considerable amount of time discussing the problem of currency depreciation and, in an effort to support his argument, used a French proverb.

“Fellow Ghanaians, money does not enjoy noise, sika mpe dede, or as the French would say, l’argent n’aime pas le bruit,” he remarked.

“You won’t discover money in places where there is disorder, commotion, or turmoil. Your money will fall if you speak negatively about it. Your money will decrease if you let an arbitrary individual criticize it, he insisted.

The Twi version of the adage, “sika mp dede,” has gone viral on social media, with people making fun of it, studying it, and offering their own interpretations.
