Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Okoro has called out Kofi Okyere Darko popularly known as KOD for his recent statements on John Dumelo’s upcoming wedding.
Remember the line where Nigerian writer and feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie says ”We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much?”
Well it seems KOD is proving our Naija girl right. The Ghanaian media personality recently congratulated actor, John Dumelo on his upcoming nuptials via Facebook. However, the social media post by KOD came out as a subtle diss to some women.
Kofi Okyere Darko posted:
”Just got off the fone with my friend and Brother John Dumelo… My brother’s actually getting married and I’m invited! Unbelievably true oo!
Beautiful Woman too
Got me wondering why most men in the public eye settle for quiet/unknown women and not the ones all over
That could be a lessen for some of our sisters ooo
Men want women who can make a home and not be all over
I wish them well and can’t wait to see them on Saturday”
That post did not go down well with Yvonne Okoro. The actress took to her Instragram account to call out KOD on his statement.

”Kofi, @nineteen57bykod you could have congratulated the couple without needlessly denigrating other women. Who a man chooses to be with is a matter of personal preference and vice versa for women too. As you clearly believe that women should make all their life choices with marriage always being at the forefront of their minds, you should preach the same to men. I pray that young women would be raised to believe that they can achieve their dreams(working hard,and being KNOWN)and being also the perfect bride for some man one day,this goes for the man too. PS-A quiet and unknown woman does not equate a happy and successful marriage.I know many KNOWN women that are working hard and are all over the place yet great wives and mothers too!! Happy marriage @johndumelo1.See you soon!”
Do you think Yvonne Okoro was right for calling out KOD on his statements on John Dumelo’s marriage?
