Uncle Ebo Whyte is a renowned play writer known widely in Ghana due to the top notch stage plays that he consistently produce.
Uncle Ebo in a conversation with Berla Mundi and Cookie Tee on TV3’s New Day, he elaborated that the kind gestures of a man is propelled by the thoughtfulness of his wife.
“When you have a son, who calls to check on you. It is because he has a good wife who is prompting him to check on you. ‘Have you called to check on your father?’, ‘Have you heard from your father this year?”
He continued by stating a scenario where a man was hostile because he had only female children. But it was his sisters who influence him to send money to his poor health parents.
He also mentioned how many wives send gifts to their husband’s families without disclosing the original source.
“There are men whose families think they are doing well because they send remittance home. What they don’t realize is that it comes from the woman in his name. So sometimes his calls call him and say, ‘Kwadwo thank you. We received your gift,’ then he is confused because quite often he does not know. So, we have that reality, and yet we still go by the archaic mindset.”
