Introduction / History
Delo is the language of the Ntrubo people. They are located in a group of villages in the southeast corner of Nkwanta district, Volta Region, east and northeast of Dambai and reaching over into Togo. The chief town of the area is Brewaniase, and the area covers about two-hundred square kilometers. The people farm crops of cassava, maize, cocoyam and plantain. They live in compounds that are built about twenty meters apart. They often migrate to towns such as Hohoe, Accra, and Kumasi in search of jobs and further education.

The Ntrubo are said to come from Atakpame in Togo, but they do not know the date of their migration. They have cultural as well as linguistic affinities with the Achode and the Adele.

Christianity was first introduced in the 1950s with the post war spread of mission schools. Most people with any elementary education would say that they are Roman Catholics or Evangelical Presbyterians. The Pentecostal and Charismatic churches entered the area in the 1960s and 70s respectively. Sadly many church members still continue to practice the traditional religion. Farmers find church going a waste of time, and many are also put off by the insistence on monogamy.
