The clip shared by SikaOfficial on his page saw the women twerking at a section of the monumental space.
The women, identified as Black Americans, were said to be on a visit to Ghana and as part of their activities, visited some interesting tourist sites in the country.
Amidst the twerking, one said “for the ancestors” while the others cheered on.
Because the place is known to be a former slavery site and referred to as the home of the ancestors, social media users who saw the video shared mixed reactions.
According to some tweeps, it was disrespectful for the women to dosplay that way at such a sacred place while other netizens saw nothing wrong with twerking at the slave tourist site.
A netizen with the user name LMAO GPT shared his perspective and wrote: “I don’t know about y’all but if I were a slave ghost haunting a castle where my ancestors were tortured, the last thing I would want to see is some tourist twerking on my pain. That is just disrespectful in so many ways”.
“Are we really surprised that people who had the strength to survive centuries of slavery can also have some fun and twerk for their ancestors? Let’s them live a little and honour their ancestors in their own way”, a view shared by another netizen.

Listen, I don’t know about y’all but if I were a slave ghost haunting a castle where my ancestors were tortured, the last thing I would want to see is some tourist twerking on my pain. That’s just disrespectful on so many levels. #Nope #TryAgain.
