It was not in any way directed at the Ewe ethnic group or community. It wasn’t supposed to be the way it was taken at all.
Please forgive both of us. We are still your sisters. We are still your loved ones. Please forgive us and let us have a beautiful country.
I have opened up applications to all the gentlemen from the Ewe land who wants to marry me.
If you are out there and have been eyeing me for some time, I have been waiting for a long time. So Efo look sharp.

bermit.1 stated:

I don't know why some Ghanaians are behaving like they never enrolled in any school or have never made a joke out of something. I sincerely think Miss Cookie and Mrs Celestine should not have rendered this apology. It is true that some of the ewe names are heavy, and those that don't understand should burn the sea. Some ewe names even have the meaning to be He goat , so my dear fellow Ghanaians stop being ethnocentric and sarcastic.❤️
