Management of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has authorised Takoradi-based rapper, Kofi Kinaata‘s ‘Things Fall Apart’ song to be studied in the school.

Effective the first semester of the 2021/2022 academic year, Level 200 students of the English Department will take it up.

This was announced on the Twitter page of Voice of KNUST, according to an Adomonline report.

The post explained that the literary devices employed, and the lyrical arrangement of the song informed the decision.

‘Things Fall Apart’ preaches how Christians have become two-faced; acting as saints in church but ungodly on the outside.

It added that, this is the third time the institution’s English Department has authorised the Fante rapper’s song within six years.

This, according to them, is because they have proven to be of great literature work.

In 2016, ‘Susuka’, which preached contentment was authorised, with ‘Confession’ in 2018, and now ‘Things Fall Apart’.

The announcement has garnered massive reactions from tweeps who have chanced on it, with scores describing it as a big win, coupled with congratulatory messages to the rapper.
