Let me tell you a story about this man
- Migyikra Yaw Tawiah Denteh
Several years ago, people who attended school in the Nchumuru area of Ghana, were very few. This man Migyikra was among the privileged batch who benefited from formal education. After Middle School he went to Tamale Technical School, where he graduated with London City and Guilds Certificate. In those days, it was one of the highly rated certificates.
In spite of the fact that he did not achieve higher educational laurels, the little he achieved impacted positively in the lives of many.
For example, in those days because there was no television, the traditional storytelling was the order of the day. However, the old man Migyikra read so many books such as “Things fall apart” “ Robinson Crusoe”, “The head of Medusa”, “The treasure Island”, Oliver Twist to mention a few. Anytime he read a story, he would sit the young children down and summarize these stories to them.
Migyikra Memorial, Cultural, Band and Musical Institute (MMCBMI) is committed to nurture and produce upright and competent graduates and empowered community through relevant and sustainable higher professional and technical instruction, research, extension and production services of edutainers, musicians, dancers, band, traditional cultural dancers’, photo/videographers, script and Africa folk tales.
