In our first article on the bead culture among the Krobos of Ghana published in our second edition of Dangme Newspaper, we received lot of feedback from different social media platforms.


Someone provided an insightful version of the romantic aspect of the bead among the Krobos of Ghana.

According to the author on Kloma Hengme Watsapp page, a krobo advocacy and heritage group based in Somanya said, they are common among the krobos in the Eastern Regional part of Ghana.

Some ladies choose to wear them in multiples, others wear just one.
They’re made from recycled broken bottles and rubber.
The main idea behind wearing of waist beads was to check weight, so when the beads get tighter, you know you’re putting on, and when they’re loose, you know you’ve lost weight.

But in the olden days, women wore them in multiples so they could rattle as they walk in order to send signals to men.

The sound of it could send signals to the male’s brain and then down to his penis to ejaculate.
When a woman is naked with the bead around her waist, it is a good sight to behold. They are worn loosely so they can rest on the V-boot, but others wear them tight on their bikini lines.
In some homes, women wear different beads to communicate to their partners.

They have a bead they wear when they’re in their period, so when the man sees, straight away, he knows she’s in ‘Red’.

A bead to show she’s horny, those are usually made like crystals, they glitter, so when the man sees, he roots.

There’s also ‘I’m not ready one’… When she wears, it means no sex!
Usually, after the first round of sex, it’s believed that; if the man starts touching and ‘praying’ the beads on the woman as Catholics do to the rosary; it awakens the penis right away for a second round. Finally, when a man is impotent or sexually weak, listen here, just insert the penis in between the lady’s skin and the bead; usually from behind, he should give himself 10 minutes, the power from the bead would enter the penis and let it stand at attention!

Ladies, don’t underestimate waist beads! Get yours, they are important!
