US-based Ghanaian, Odehyieba, has advised African men living in the US to show respect to their wives to sustain their marriages.
In an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Odehyieba reveals the disparity in cultural values between Africa and the US, which necessitates a shift in gender dynamics within marriages to adapt to legal frameworks and societal norms.
He argued that in the US, the laws favor women, leading some African women to exploit them and assert dominance in relationships.
Odehyieba claimed that adhering to traditional Ghanaian marriage values could lead to marital collapse in the US. He dvised men to yield and become “the woman of the house” for marital success.
He also suggested that some African men deliberately bring women from Africa to the US to exploit them, withholding information about legal systems to maintain control over their wives.
