8 Ghanaian TV dads that changed our lives

Yes, we know Father’s Day was last month but that’s not going to stop us from giving these men their flowers.

Ghana TV gave us some of the best fatherhood representations. From TV shows to game shows, these men, whether acting, taught us the value of responsibility, kindness and sometimes tough love too.

Here are 8 Ghanaian TV dads that changed our lives.

Kojo Dadson – Home Sweet Home

Kojo Dadson – Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home was that sitcom that Ghana didn’t even know it needed. An inside look into a Ghanaian middle-class family with the late Kojo Dadson as the soft and clumsy papa of the house? 100% the father figure we needed. If there’s anything we can say about Kojo Dadson, it’s that his role taught us that everyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.

Kofi Adjorlolo – Princess Tyra

Kofi Adjorlolo – Princess Tyra

Kofi Adjorlolo in Princess Tyra is the daddy all the wannabe Dada Ba girls probably want(ed). A father so powerful and wealthy that when you enter Max Mart to shop everyone needs to exit? Now, if that’s not a father who protects then we don’t know what else is.

Mac Jordan Amartey – Fresh Trouble

If there’s anyone that taught us confidence it was definitely the master of comic relief Mac Jordan ‘Accent Master’ Amartey. Just check this clip above and never be shy to ask for more meat in any where you go.

George Brigars Williams – Ultimate Paradise

Actor George Brigars Williams

George Brigars Williams stepped into the role of mogul-with-the-cigars Mr. Addison from 90’s series Ultimate Paradise and became one of the most iconic patriarchs Ghana TV has ever had. Period. He taught us that money makes the world go round and swag is key in any thing you do.

William Addo – Chronicles of Odumkrom: the Headmaster

William Addo – Chronicles of Odumkrom: the Headmaster

William Addo is best known for being the grumpy father figure with his heart in the right place. His role in the dramedy Chronicles of Odukrom is an example of the father figure that whines about everything but ultimately will see anything good right to the end.

David Dontoh – Agoro

David Dontoh – Agoro

David Dontoh is one of Ghana’s famous veteran actors, and not only for his movies or commercials. David Dontoh for almost two decades was the face of Ghana’s premiere game show Agoro. You just had to be there. Every Saturday night, David Dontoh together with Key Soap would roll out quizzes in Ghanaian trivia and raffles in front of audiences. If you want a father figure that taught us that life is a game of chance to be won then it’s definitely this legend.

Mikki Osei Berko – Taxi Driver

Mikki Osei Berko – Taxi Driver

How could we even forget Mikki Osei Berko as Master Richard in Taxi Driver? Some Ghanaians probably know him only as Master Richard. That’s how iconic of a legend this man’s mark is. Master Richard was a business man/Taxi owner with an accent and swagger of an American Borga just arrived in Ghana. His impressions and his no-nonsense relationship dynamic with his crafty nephew Aboagye (played by George Quaye) gave us tuts on how to be the uncle who holds things down.

Henry Harding – Taxi Driver

Henry Harding – Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver gave us another unsung father-figure in the person of Henry Harding, better known for his role as Pattington Papa Nii Papafio. What did we learn from this rib-cracking master of vocabs? That so-so grammar can sometimes change bad vibes into good ones. At least, we learnt what an oesophagus was before entering JSS.
