‘Because of my love for Ghana, I forgot my wife’s birthday’ – Manasseh Azure

Spread the love

Celebrated Ghanaian journalist Manasseh Azure has revealed he loves his country Ghana way more than his wife, Rebecca Eduafo-Abraham.

The former Multimedia Group journalist disclosed this in his latest piece on his official website,

According to Azure, he once forgot his wife’s birthday because his thoughts were totally occupied by a documentary he was doing to expose corruption in the country.

He revealed his actions made his wife cry and said, “I said it that if you’re to choose between Ghana and me, you will choose Ghana.”.

“Words about the love of my nation will remind her of my first major infidelity in our marriage, one she says she will never forget. I was producing an investigative documentary on abandoned vehicles and had to leave home very early for work one day,” Manasseh recounted.

“The night before, I was scheming on how to shoot the videos of abandoned ambulances that had been parked in the Air Force Base in Accra, after the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Armed Forces had bounced my initial request. I was so preoccupied with the new opening that I didn’t think about anything else.

“Thankfully, the day was successful and I went to shoot, but when I got home, she was in tears. It was her birthday. And I did not remember.

“‘I said it,’ she would tell me days later, ‘that if you’re to choose between Ghana and me, you will choose Ghana.'”

Manasseh Azure Awuni has been married to Rebecca Eduafo-Abraham for almost four years. Rebecca is a lawyer who works with the law firm, Atuguba and Associates.
