Artist Manager, Nana Asiamah Hanson known in showbiz circles as Bulldog is under fire for comments he made on Accra based 3FM suggesting that women are meant for the kitchen and bedroom.
According to Bulldog, it is not right for women to be seen with men during important discussions since that is a deviation from the purpose for which they were created.
Speaking on the need for men and women to be given equal rights and opportunities, Bulldog insisted that there is a purpose for which God created men before women, which affirms the fact that women cannot be compared to men.
“Do you think if God wanted that [equal rights] he wouldn’t have created both of us on the same day? Who came here [on earth] first? and that’s the most important stuff. Women destroy stuff, they mess up everything, women are just for the Kitchen and bedroom. I’m saying this, they should go and cut my head or my wife can leave me if she wants to. Women are meant for the kitchen and bedroom, they should not be sitting around men discussing important issues,” he said on 3FM.
Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals aims at ending all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere.
It hopes to ensure that by 2030, women and girls, everywhere around the world will have equal rights and opportunity, and be able to live free of violence and discrimination.
Ghana has been contributing its bid to ensure the realization of this global aim. Towards achieving gender parity, some notable corporate institutions in the country have appointed women to head their institutions, mostly based on their competence rather than their gender.
Special mention can be made of newly appointed first Ghanaian female Director of Aker Energy Ghana Ltd, Kadijah Amoah, the Chief Executive Officer of the Trust hospital, Dr. Juliana Oye Ameh, Trust Hospital, Nana Araba Abban in August, the Group Consumer Banking Head of the Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI), and Patricia Obo-Nai, Chief Executive of Vodafone Ghana among many others.
Commenting on the competence of women who are occupying top positions in various companies, the artist manager said such appointments are only meant to ‘soften’ the faces of the companies and not because such appointees will bring much on board.
To him, women are just “the icing on the cake” while men are the cake itself.
“I’m not saying women are useless, I’m just saying that they have their own purpose. The mistake is that they start comparing themselves with men, it won’t ogre well with them. It is political, just to soften the face of the company, it’s just nice. It’s not like women will really bring anything on board, it’s just like boys are going for a party, if girls are not part it’s not nice. You are just like the icing on the cake, you are not the cake,” he added.
