Radio personality, Afia Pokuaa known as Vim Lady says she’s lost some good men who wanted to marry her because of her job.
According to her, although the men are okay with what she does, parents of these men have on several occasions rejected her because to them she is loud.
She made this known when she was speaking at maiden anniversary lecture series of the Alliance for Women in Media.
She said ” “…There are a lot of misconceptions, so there’s a system that we need to break to get women there. Once they find themselves even in the media, what are the support systems there? None”.
“Imagine me, sitting on radio, calling people’s fathers out, people who are older than me, because I have a job to do. And I’m doing it in Akan, very brutal not just ordinarily brutal in English but very brutal. So I’ve been called all sorts of names. I’ve lost marriage proposals because of that. Yes… ‘My son can’t marry a woman who is loud, so my son can’t be with you. I’ve heard a lot of that.”
