Following recent remarks of popular Ghanaian counsellor and preacher, Rev. Dr Charlotte Oduro, urging men to overlook lavish women who spend Ghc1000.00 on styling their hair, some Ghanaians have hit back at her.
Rev. Dr Charlotter Oduro was speaking on her YouTube platform, 'Love Clinic', when she urged men not to marry women who spend what she considers a huge amount on hair.
''Any woman who spends GHc1000.00 on hair is not marriage material,'' the controversial counsellor indicated.
However, her analogy has been characterised as ''flawed'' by many especially because it is relatively applicable and not a fit for all.
''But get a woman when you say I have GH¢1000 for your hair and she calls back and says, my dear you know the GH¢1000 you gave me, I have been able to purchase these goods I want to sell and put them on Facebook and WhatsApp so I will be able to sell them,'' Rev. Dr. Oduro emphasised.
She added: ''Those are the women you need to build your life with.''
The popular counsellor’s narrative has gained traction and many have bashed her for out of touch with modernity rhetoric.
YEN.com.gh shared her rhetoric on Facebook.
Some have stated that while it remains undebated that a woman must also be a manager of her home including its financial holdings, she must also look ''pretty for her man.''
Other also indicated a woman's value or worth should not be reduced to the amount she spends on her hair. And whether or not she will be a good wife can not be determined by same.
''I just don't wanna talk but honestly this is a cheap attention you're seeking.All the stress my head's been through learning and if at this stage i have a good job all thanks to my brian which is inside my head.If i decorate my head with just Ghc1000 is a crime so I'm not a marriage material?There are classes of women and to some Ghc1000 is just chicken change note that,'' Paintsil Nanaadwoa, said in response.
Another social media user identified as Toetalk Talk noted he likes pretty women. He stated: ''[I'm] going to work hard to let my wife have the best bcos am attracted to ladies who can keep themselves very pretty and beautiful always.''
Chi Di Prosper Quarshie wrote: ''What if Ghc1,000 is 'chicken feed' to me.And I love my woman?And want her to look good in that wig? Sometimes,the normative ethics of dos and don't must be contextualized,because human behaviour and situations vary.''
''I'll indicated Rev. Dr Oduro's ''assertion all boils down to priorities. A man might be very rich and will see that amount as nothing especially when he issues it out to her wife to look good,'' Dogbeda Yao, said in response.
He added: ''Again, in a different family setting, a man will read meaning into the demands of his wife since he might not be having that amount of money. You can't conclude on things like that.''
Others also hit back at the popular counsellor while noting Dr Oduro is not in touch with the realities of a modern society.
