Most marriages collapsing because of partners’ attachment to their phones – Okyeame Kwame
Multiple award-winning Ghanaian musician, Okyeame Kwame, has addressed a critical issue that is affecting most relationships, the world over.
In one of his songs called ‘Dum Fon No’, the Rap Dacta tells the story of a married man asking his wife to put off her phone and pay attention to him.
‘Dum Fon No’, taken off the ‘Made in Ghana’ album features Yaa Yaa.
According to Okyeame Kwame this song was done out of his personal life experience.
He told Jessica Opare Saforo on Citi 97.3 FM that he chose to tackle phubbing (the practice of ignoring one’s companion or companions in order to pay attention to one’s phone or other mobile devices) because it is the number one reason for most problems in relationships in the world.
“Most marriages are breaking up because of people’s attachment to the phone and what they do on the phone,” he said.
Phubbing makes room for cheating and all the strange things the phone will help you do. It is very important that we look at this phenomenon with a critical eye.
“It gets to a time, you need to turn the phone off,” he further advised.
Okyeame is married to Annica Nsia-Apau. They are blessed with two children; Sir Kwame Nsia-Bota and Sante Antwiwa Nsia-Apau.
