LIFESTYLE: It Is More Lucrative To Get A ‘Sugar Daddy’ In Ghana Than Get A Job…Join In Or Get Broke

3 min


Black girl

So my cousin got me thinking this morning when I heard her trying so hard to justify to her friend on the phone why getting a job is not her priority. Instead, she will borrow money to enhance her appearance and be present at every event (even if uninvited), aggressively waiting for that golden Sugar Daddy to come her way…

Most of my cousin’s friends are jobless, yet they wear the most expensive Brazilian hair, hold the latest iPhones and Blackberries.

Some of them even have their own cars and if you are wondering about how they got the cars, that is the least of my problem, I just can’t get my head around how they even can afford the fuel needed each day, assuming the cars were stolen.

Unemployment is at its highest peak in Ghana and most people blame the government for the economic hardship. No matter who you blame for your hardship, must the remedy lie in the pockets of ‘Sugar Daddies’?

The phenomenon of ladies dating or sleeping with older (sometimes married) men for purely financial gains in Ghana is as old as consciousness. However, the new generation of Ghanaian women have taken this to a far different level, making it a full time job.

The dating of ‘Sugar Daddies’ concept has grown to the extent that, it is no more an embarrassment or taboo to be with a man of your father’s age, giving out s*x for money. Young girls openly admit and discuss these activities they are engaged in.

I was told few months ago of a covert networking event periodically held in Accra which is aimed at bringing young ladies close to their future jobs-Sugar Daddies.

The question is, why must a young girl in Ghana strive to work and hustle through the scorching sun when she can easily ride in an air-conditioned BMW and be paid far better than any deserving job can give her?

If the above question is as simple as it is, then I perfectly understand why my cousin thinks life is far better when you grab someone’s husband, make him your financier and give him the shots he wants when he wants them. After all, you can still keep the boy you love by the side and the old man will not be bothered or not even notice.

The problem with this new way of living in Ghana is that,  it corrupts the very social fabric that holds us together as a community. It breeds laziness and it kills the economy.  Instead of people being productive in return for money, they easily receive huge cash for no work done-except work done in the bedroom.

Personally, I find this way of life morally corrupt. Sometimes I ask myself; Am I in the wrong world? What happened to decency and living within your means? What happened to the days you will work hard, save some money and eventually when you buy those pair of shoes that you have been dreaming about, you will smile all the way home…

Maybe I am hating on this concept because I do not have a ‘Sugar Daddy’ yet and when my cousin who seems to be an expert eventually convinces me and finds me one, I will shut up and join the get rich now club.

For now,  it is either I join in or continue to be broke…After all, it is more lucrative to get a ‘Sugar Daddy’ than get a job.

Do you have a ‘Sugar Daddy’? Have you been with one before? Have you seen how other young women are running after ‘Sugar Daddies’ in Ghana now?

  1. Women who look for ‘sugar daddies’ hmmmm i dont blame them i blame all these sugar daddies for being stupid you work yourself to the top and end up giving money away because of a girl who has boobs or Ass and has photoshop her face, i respect girls that are healthy, smart, and very capable of providing a decent life for them self and not those useless girls always looking for a sugar daddy, sorry to say but your cousin and other girls are just Ashawo Girls Two drop one Ghana cedi public toilet thats what they are these girls are not even decent enough for the society and some African men are just pure dumb

    1. @Dr. Miyagi Atopa, I understand what you mean. do you know when ill excuse this case. Maybe if the girl is looking for a decent job and gets 1000 rejections. In that case if she will have a sugardady she needs to save the money he is giving her and start her own business. Like do it temporary at least you will have something to fall on. But if you are just lazy depending on these daddies then indeed its useless

  2. Hmm, it’s sad but I guess sometimes the logic is that instead of letting some u’seless boy ‘fire’ you for free and stress you out, it’s better you take a sugar daddy who’ll enhance your life. It’s the effect of poverty, as you say, few people have a job. And even if you have a job, it’s not like US or Europe where once you have a job, you can easily rent an apartment, get a car and live a decent life. Some of my friends have ended up owning businesses, doing their masters etc all through a sugar daddy. as3m o.

  3. remember that all of these sugar daddies don’t stay.  They will go back to these wives and children.  There is always the next young gal who he will fund after he gets tired of the current girl. He will never be 100%.

    1. @yaa, Hmm so true. Most of the girls who date sugar daddies know this though and are not in it for love but for cash. So they don’t care if the sugar daddy goes away eventually- so long as they’ve drained him of enough cash, they’re ok. They don’t want 100%.

  4. Eishhhh awurade… God forbid…. some ghana women are sooo lazy for my liking…. this is veri bad… ghana is no longer safe….. go to school, u wont go… search for a job, it a big wahala 4 them… but they keep on roamin about searchin for rich men n peopls husband…. they even take some of them to juju… stupid lazy gurls….. they buy expensive clothes, shoes, phones, they do their hair every week. clubbin etc… gosh am short of words…. thats how dey keep on spreadin disease around…. nkwasiasem aa akwakwa

  5. wow i m loving this article. i was in ghana a year ago, and my male cousin who is in his 20s and in college complained bitterly that no gal is looking his way cos he is broke. i laughed about it but i met other young men  who complained about the same thing. some of these men are working as teachers and police officers yet are even scared to approach gals. this is sad but it don’t look like is going anywhere. i have even heard of some of these gals using juju” on their sugar daddies.
