MONWASHA: Akoma Day is an international alternative to Valentine’s Day

By Cristina John

What if there was an alternative way to celebrate love without worrying about the expectation of others? Look to Montsho and Nwasha Edu, a happily married couple, therapists and co-founders of Akoma House Initiatives for the answer.

Montsho and Nwasha, who are fondly known as Monwasha, are responsible for creating Akoma Day, a replacement for Valentine’s Day, which came into fruition in 2001. This cultural holiday is more than a one-day feat filled with chocolate, heart-shaped balloons and teddy bears.
