The cartoon lampoons British High Commissioner to Ghana Jon Benjamin who back in April sent a tweet criticising television star Nana Aba Anamoah's grammar, sparking a heated debate on the West African country's colonial past.
Contemporary artist Bright Ackwerh immortalised the inane moment with his signature style that recalls Mad Magazine's portraits.

Reflecting the bullish market for the continent's art, this year major art broker Sotheby's opened an African modern and contemporary art department with its first auction scheduled for 2017, said department head Hannah O'Leary.

For artists like Ackwerh, the exposure can't come at a better time.
"The concept of art here in the mainstream is still very, very limiting, so not many forms of expressions are considered worthy of space," Ackwerh said.
Gallery 1957, an internationally acclaimed contemporary art venue in Accra, opened in March, while in December the city will host a new fair called Art Accra.
