- Prophet Badu Kobi has thrown another tribal bombshell
- Badu Kobi has described Asante men as egoistic
- The controversial prophet made the statement in his latest sermon
Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi, the founder ad leader of Glorious Wave Chapel, has made another contentious statement against Asantes after coming under fire for similar controversial comments he made recently.
This time, Prophet Badu Kobi has described men from the Asante tribe as people who have unnecessary pride.
According to him, his father who was an Asante man himself at a point time advised him not to emulate the pride of Asante men.
“When you are qualifying a tribe you do not say some of them you say them because it is them. My father told me that we Asantes are proud. He said my son, Badu Kobi, don’t emulate them,” he was quoted by Mynewsgh.com to have said in his latest sermon.
Speaking further, Badu Kobi disclosed he heeded to his father's advice and has not taken after the pride of his tribesmen.
“People say Badu Kobi is calm…yes! I may be calm but I am not afraid. I am calm and I want to be humble because my father told me that the tribe we come from the men their ego is too big. So I decided that I am from that tribe but I will not live with that ego and I check the Bible and Jesus says I am meek and lonely in heart, come and learn of me,” he explained.
Badu Kobi's latest statement comes after he described Asante women as greedy, Fante women foolish, and Ewe women like doormats.
In a video of the sermon sighted by YEN.com.gh, the renowned prophet asked men from his church not to think of marrying Asante women because of the greedy attitude they bring into marriage.
The statements from Badu Kobi led to a lot of backlash for him as many described the comments as tribalistic.
From his latest statements, Badu Kobi is still unfazed by the criticisms.
