In the video, a Twi-speaking man acting like a pastor shaved the private parts of some women as part of a spiritual direction.
Standing in front of a banner with the caption “3-Day Supernatural Cleansing”, the supposed pastor was heard informing the ladies that when it gets to their turn to approach him, they should remove their own pant.
While shaving, another man, perhaps a junior pastor, is seen with a white handkerchief collecting the pubic hair even before they fall to the ground.
The pastor was so angry as he shaved the ladies, complaining that some people have been questioning and ridiculing his spiritual directions.

He said those who say he is not from God are foolish and asked: “If I am not from God, am I from your mother?”
The video initially stirred angry reactions from a section of Ghanaians who found the behaviour repulsive.
But a fact check by YEN.com.gh later revealed that the video was not a real-life situation but only a clip from a movie.
Following our fact check, YEN.com.gh has dug a few things about the man who played the pastors' role in the movie.

His production house has since 2017 been releasing movies bothering on 'fake pastors' including the popular Pastor Blinks movie which got him his nickname.
The trending shaving video happens to be one of the movies from his production house which was uploaded onto YouTube.
