''We are not happy. In the era and time we are in now, no one has done what our father has done and nobody can do it again. It can't happen that someone will marry 15 wives and have more than 100 children ever again. Therefore, we think his name should be in the Guinness book of records,'' he said.
''Even after the funeral, names are popping up which we never thought of. This tells you that he has done a great thing, which we can't be taken out of history,'' he added.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a Ghanaian woman only identified as Elizabeth who was diagnosed with kidney disease is battling for her life at a hospital in India.
Elizabeth has been abandoned by her biological sister in India and her husband has also refused to answer her calls.
