In other news, Controversial Ghanaian marriage expert, Counsellor Lutterodt, has spoken in a recent video interview about the popular Date Rush show on TV3.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of Daily Graphic, the iconic Ghanaian figure said the show is simply glorified prostitution.

By way of explaining himself, Lutterodt said that there is no solid ground upon which people select their dates on the show because the partners are mainly joined together based on looks.
