What to Call Your Husband/Boyfriend in Twi

We have, in a previous lesson, looked at some cute terms that you can use to call the people that you love. While I did not set out to compile a list that targeted mainly at the female gender in that lesson, it pretty much came out as such. If you missed that lesson, please click here to go check it out.

Today’s lesson is a part two to that lesson. This time around, we are focusing on some affectionate terms in Twi that you can use to refer to your husband or boyfriend.
