Outspoken TV Personality and radio host with Adom FM, Afia Pokua (Vim Lady) has shared her experience about how she has had to endure disappointments from men who wanted to take her to the altar.
And according to Afia Pokua, she lost these marriage opportunities because families of her suitors thought she’s rude.
Addressing a gathering of women during the Alliance for Women in Media program, the broadcast journalist noted that her troubles are all because of her job. Her style of delivery has affected her reputation in one way or the other.
She added that there are no system supports for women in media.
“…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.” She stated.
“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.” She sadly recalled.
