I can't figure it out. Is "akɔdaa" child? "Bɔ" is to strike, kick, hit, play an instrument. "Akyekyedeɛ" is gift. Hmmmm, please tell me if I am correct on these word translations and translate the proverb.

@kwaku-omowale a child is supposed to do what is within his/her means but does not exceed it.   I found this translation.    Struggling with transliterations...

mepa wo kyɛw, mekyea mo.

the translation i have is

'akɔdaa bɔ ɛnwa na ɔmmɔ akyekyedeɛ'

'the child breaks the shell of a snail, but not that of a tortoise'
 
the meaning of the proverb is correct as above from kwadwo. you have to do things according to your capacity/ability. A child cannot be expected the break the shell of the tortoise because it is much harder and the child is not developed in capacity or ability.

no one knows where Twumwaa and Samanpa share their boundaries. (a third person or outsider will never know the inner secrets of another group)

ANTI-RACIST PHILOSOPHY IN CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN MUSIC VIDEOS: EXPLORING THE RECURRING THEMES

In this presentation, I deconstruct music videos of popular music genres (reggae, dancehall, rap, soul) that addresses racism through anti-racist lyrics and visuals. In the wake of racist onslaught and police brutalities against people of African descent, conscious musicians have channeled activism through their lyrics and music videos to create social awareness of systemic racism, genocide, and unjust killings through various forms of white terror domination systems.
