“It’s disrespectful to be cooking, washing for your boyfriends” – Kafui Danku
Ghanaian actress and producer, Kafui Danku, recently sparked a social media debate when she questioned the intentions of women who assume wifely responsibilities in relationships where there is no formal commitment.
In a post on her Instagram page, Kafui expressed her concerns about the issue and shared a personal experience to drive her point home. She asked, “Ladies that go to their boyfriend’s house and start cooking and cleaning for them and washing for them and assuming wife responsibilities and all, what is the motivation behind that?”
The actress went ahead to narrate an incident where a man who was pursuing her asked her to visit him. On the second date, she visited him and found him cleaning but did not offer to help. The man was not pleased with this and made a big fuss about it, leading to the end of their relationship.
Kafui described the man’s behavior as disrespectful and urged women to be cautious about the responsibilities they take on in relationships. She emphasized the need to take things slowly and not to assume wife duties for men who are not committed.
“Now that I think about it, it was even disrespectful. You don’t do that. At least date somebody for a while,” she added.
Although Kafui meant to encourage young ladies to be careful about the responsibilities they take on in relationships, her followers had different opinions. Many of them lashed out at her for giving bad advice.
Some of the comments included, “This is a terrible mindset,” “I don’t see anything wrong with it,” and “If you’re in a committed relationship, what’s wrong with doing these things?” Others pointed out that some women assume these responsibilities out of love and care for their partners.
Regardless of the varied opinions, Kafui’s message is clear: women should be cautious about taking on wifely responsibilities in relationships where there is no formal commitment. This caution is essential to prevent potential heartbreak and disrespect.
