Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi, founder and leader of Glorious Wave Ministries International, has been in the news for bad reasons due to his attacks on women of Ashanti, Fante and Ewe origins.
The spiritual father of former President John Dramani Mahama, in a video that has gone viral and is the source of the vitriolic remarks being heaped on him from a section of the Ghanaian people, is seen and heard chauvinistically describing Ashanti women as greedy, selfish, property grabbing and materialistic. He is also seen and heard describing them as not being marriage materials.
While Ghanaians have expressed shock at this rare behaviour of a man of God, sources close to him has it that, the Ashanti wife of Prophet Badu Kobi is fiercely seeking a divorce.
According to the source, the man of God’s wife is leaving over his countless infidelities. As a man of God, Mrs. Kobi is unable to fathom why a man of God, an emblem of high moral standards, could stoop so low to desecrate God’s work.
Prophet Badu Kobi, it further states, has been begging his wife not to leave him as that would disgrace him publicly, bringing his reputation and the church down on their knees.
According to the source, try as he might, Mrs. Kobi is determined to call it quits this time since she has had more than enough of his infidelities.
This decision by Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi’s Ashanti wife, according to the information, fuelled the man of God to take Ashanti women to the cleaners in the manner that he did.
Prophet Badu Kobi, unable to cope with the divorce staring him in the face, has vented his spleen on the tribe of his wife. The only way, he believes, to deal with his demons, is to blame his estranged wife and her ethnicity.
