This is an African thing, African men, prefer to marry either white women or African women who don’t live in Ghana or have spent most of their lives outside Ghana. I guess nobody is content with what they have, even in Hollywood, many famous black guys like Seal, Kanye West and more have fallen for white women or indulged in interracial relationships.
In Ghana, it’s no different, it is almost every Ghanaian man’s dream to either get with a foreign woman or settle with one, mostly Ghanaian women who have stayed abroad for long. It’s almost as if, being a foreigner or having a foreign background is HOT cake. There could be several reasons why Ghanaian men go for foreign women but here are the top seven reasons based on our analysis. Let’s walk
MOST GHANAIAN WOMEN ARE NOT ROMANTIC
99% of Ghanaian women don’t even know the meaning of PDA (Public Display Of Affection). Thanks to the American movies we watch, Ghanaian men believe that Ghanaian women don’t know how to express their love to their husbands especially at public places, in bed and places that love is supposed to flow.
Light skinned or half-caste kids are treated special in Ghana, recent news report had it that even Ghanaian couples are paying to have half-caste kids . It is almost every Ghanaian man’s dream to have light skinned babies. That is what some of the Ghanaian men told us.
FOREIGN WOMEN ARE GREAT IN BED
Of course, there is nothing greater than having your wife doing you “good” in bed, we are made to believe that foreign women are usually freaks in bed and they want more of our mandingo’s and we are willing to give them. Some Ghanaian men told us that and they base it on the interracial porn that they watch. Ghanaian women on the other hand are dull in bed, makes excuses or fail to make sexual intercourse enticing.
FOREIGN GIRLS DON’T CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE (RICHES)
Except for Hollywood, the typical foreign woman care less about what you have or make, what you have is a bonus, usually they are helpful, in terms of staying by you through thick and thin and helping you make it. Some Ghanaian men we interviewed also said that, with white people, being AMBITIOUS and having a dream is good enough for them to be with you, with Ghanaian women, go and make it, then they might consider thinking about your proposal (no hard feelings and definitely, no dabi dabi a ebey3 yie).
WHITE WOMEN ARE HELPFUL, GHANAIAN WOMEN DRAIN YOU
As we were told, Ghanaian women prefer to marry rich men or men who are alright (financially), white people want to be part of your life, help you grow and grow with you (financially). Ghanaian women only want to drain you, put their burdens on you and that of their families, they are demanding and less understanding, neither do they want to contribute to your success, only a few cases.
GHANAIAN WOMEN DON’T MARRY FOR LOVE
Before two people marry, they must be in love, be best friends, know each other best and more, but when you come to Ghana, it’s a different case all together, women/girls marry for many vague reasons like “all her age-mates are married”, “the guy is rich”, “the guy is abroad”, “he comes from a rich background”, “he’s a royal” and more. As you can see, there is no love here, many believe that after they get married, there will be love.
Note: By foreign, I mean white people and Ghanaians who stay abroad or have stayed abroad before.
