Na God is an expression in West African Pidgin English that means 'It's God!' When people unexpectedly hear good news, experience a miracle, receive a gift, or when something right or remarkable happens, that is when we might hear Nigerians and Ghanaians say 'Na God.' The expression is much more than a mere exclamation; it is part of a way of experiencing the world, acknowledging the presence of supernatural powers, and communicating and mediating experiences of daily living. Na God is part of the aesthetics with which African Pentecostals reiterate their link with God and with their community, and within it contains a piece of the story of Nigerian and Ghanaian Pentecostalism and their way of navigating and responding to colonial inheritances of language and religion. Annalisa Butticci
