    @James Hohoe..U think you know better than the one marrying? How is the haircut demonic? Did the bible state that particular haircut is demonic. Its time we face reality and stop pushing this onto relisgion The bane of Africans.He is too young to marry? Is there a rule to which age to marry? Stop the shallow thinking. U think age corresponds to maturity. I bet someone younger than you is far matured than you are and has been through experiences u have not. Keep your personal rules to urself. So u think marrying at 22 yrsd means you are rushing?? Dude stop displaying your ignorance nad shallow mided thinking in public. He should marry at 40 abi and when he is old his kids are very young.

    My problem is with the current wave of divorce crushing the marriage of many soccer players, has Afriyie prayed very well and is spiritually convinced the lady is the right choice for him? Is he a committed member of a Bible-believing church? And if he belongs to a church whose pastor and elders were present, why did they not advise him to change his hair cut? What did his parents and other relatives tell him about that demonic hair cut? Because of money, the modern day youth are not really looking before leaping! He is too young to marry. Is he mentally matured to handle marital problems alone without rushing to a friend for advice?

    @King when you mary at the age of 30, do you know the disadvantages in it. You sound very amateour! Look at Abedi Pele and his children today and those who are now doing their best. Not everything thing that comes to your mind you should spit it out.

    Is Afriyie Acquah really 22 years?.If he is 22 why rush and marry?.People forget that women age faster than men,and by age 40,that is when the problem starts.Why can't He wait and marry at 30 years,when he is mature enough.

    To Kafui Dey, you don't have to insult me. You can bear with me that in a typical Ghanaian context, a young man cannot enter marriage with that kind of haircut. All these haircuts and tattoos being exhibited by these sportsmen and women is not for fun. We are in the end times. The devil is looking for more souls to take to hell with himself. You may be rich, but the counsel of adults is very much needed in issues like marriage. No matter what, he is an African, and Ghanaian for that matter. The youth of today are suffering emotionally because of a wide generation gap. All that glitters is never gold. After all, did Ghanaians not pray for these players? What is their individual relationship with God? The Bible is against men pitting on ear rings, body tattoos, etc because they are affront to God. You can insult me, but these exhibits are morally and biblical repulsive.
