Agya Koo Nimo who happens to be an African Ethnomusicologist of palm wine highlife fame has charged young men to respect women if they wish to live long.
Speaking to Ultimate News’ Ivan Heathcote – Fumador on the sidelines of the maiden StoryFest event in Kumasi, the nonagenarian insisted “women are sacred and they have to be respected.”
“If you want to understand life, watch the life of a woman. It is taboo to hit your wife. If you do, it is like striking your own mother,” he advised.
Agya Koo Nimo who remarried after his first wife passed on, recounted how his life had been sustained by his wives with whom he has been blessed with fifteen children.
“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,” he observed.
Advising the youth to stick to a wife and eschew promiscuity, Agya Koo insisted that monogamy was divine.
“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,” he cautioned.
Again, Koo Nimo, baptized Daniel Amponsah is a leading folk musician of Palm wine music or Highlife music from Ghana.
