Nhyiraba Kwabena Asirifi, the host of Rainbow Radio’s Weekend morning show, has urged radio and television hosts who discuss marriage issues on their platforms to be cautious in their approach.
The host raised concern about the current tendency of married women being given platforms by radio and television hosts to portray a bleak picture of their husbands without hearing from the men’s side.
He noted that because women receive more sympathy on all issues than men, people prefer to believe their claims, whether they are fake or true.
He stated that no reasonable man would accumulate resources and marry his adversary, but situations in marriages can occasionally cause various problems for couples, and in most cases, the women portray their stories in such a way as to court negative reactions towards the males.
The host pondered why such radio and television hosts would allow married women to appear on their shows to trash and attack their spouses without regard for what is on the side of the men.
“You allow women to come on your shows and attack their husbands while denying men the opportunity to tell their stories.” Some of you, the hosts, let the women insult and denigrate the men. If the men recount their stories, you will discover that the women are not saints and are the ones generating the trouble.
Why do you allow them to disrespect the males on your shows, and where do you expect them to go? Do you expect them to return to their marital homes? How are your marriages doing as hosts who allow such risky behaviour on your shows? I’m not sure why these things happen. I don’t see wealthy women doing these things. Will you attend their funerals if you disrespect your husband on television and radio?
I’m bringing these issues up so that my colleagues on radio and television might learn from them. We must be professional. Marriage is a sacred institution and a sensitive subject, and not everything about it should be discussed on the radio or television. We must take responsibility and put an end to these unnecessary activities.”
