We have always been proud of them.
Any time someone talks about Ghanaian culture, it is almost inevitable that they will bring up the kradin. Kradin, or soul name, is the name a child is given based on the day of the week they were born. We are proud of these names, and when you call someone by their kradin instead of the regular name everyone else calls them, it shows you are extra close to that person.
Now, thanks to the talented artists at Creo Concepts, we get to see the kradin of the ladies have come to life as these beautifully illustrated princesses. Ever since the artists revealed them on social media, ladies all over Ghana have identified with their respective avatar based on the day they were born, and the guys have been hankering for their own versions, resulting in hilarious roughly sketched parodies.
The guys at Creo would have us know that each princess has her own unique set of qualities, based on their day. While we can’t confirm or deny these qualities, the ladies don’t seem to be complaining so I guess we’ll go with them. However it has been long held by many guys for some reason, that Princess Afia is a bad girl and something of a heart breaker. Hey, we just tell you what the people say.
In the order of the days of the week, here are the princesses that everyone can’t stop talking about.

THURSDAY’S VERY OWN PRINCESS YAA
