Accra is pocket-size - everybody knows almost everybody else.
Imagine a fringe friend who’s secretly married warming up to your sibling or close friend. Do you tell on them ‘already’? Would you shut your bill (you parrot!) and mind your own ‘beeswax’ and let people deal with their issues (or tissues, since this will end in tears)? Or will you tell Angelic Acquaintance to fly away quietly forever and nothing more said?
*Breaking – a Ghanaian English word meaning to tell on someone in order to upset their plans.
