Agya Koo Nimo, the celebrated African ethnomusicologist of palm wine highlife fame, says absolute respect for women made him live long.
Known in real life as Daniel Kwabena Boa, the nonagenarian said he is a firm believer in the “sacredness” of women thus, they must be “respected.”
Agyapa Koo Nimo made the comments at the sidelines of the maiden StoryFest event in Kumasi, Kasapafmonline reported.
According to him, a man can only understand life by watching with keen interest the life of a woman.
“I don’t know how to cook. It is these women who have fed me all my life. When you have a quarrel with your wife, one thing you should never do is to deprive her of upkeep money. If you refuse to eat her food, you have done yourself a great disservice,” the report quoted him as saying.
He added: “I have been blessed with long life because I live by what my creator taught. He created just one woman for the first man. You young men should stop this Charley Charley life and marry one person and stick to her.”
Agya Koo Nimo remarried after his first wife passed on. He has been blessed with fifteen children.
In other entertainment news, Ghanaian singer, Mr. Drew, known professionally as Andrews Commey Otoo, accused Open Gate hitmaker Kuami Eugene, born Eugene Kwame Marfo, is an expert in stealing songs by other artistes.
The Highly Spiritual artiste said this in an interview with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM while responding to allegations that he is known for using compositions by other artistes in songs that he releases.
In 2020, the official video for his song, Eat, featuring Stonebwoy was deleted off Youtube after a report that it illegally sampled Love Riddim by Nigerian-American artiste, Rotimi.
He was accused of copying the sound of No Dulling by Keche, featuring Kuami Eugene.
In his defence, Mr. Drew said he is not the first artiste to 'steal' songs belonging to other artistes, and that Kuami Eugene does the same.
"Kuami Eugene started stealing songs before me. He has a scholarship in it," retorted Drew to Abeiku Santana on Okay FM.
