She claims her man does not cheat. Why should he, with two wives? But Amanpour still presses her on the issues of love, happiness, and fulfilment. She agrees that love has to be shared, sometimes, in Africa. Amanpour reunites with Brigit, the trokosi girl who brought her to Ghana twenty years ago. It is an emotional meeting. She is still 26 about the age of Moesha and recently turned Christian. Is she in a relationship? We do not quite get her answer. Mama Zembi is a kind of agony aunt for marriage, love and sex.
She hosts a radio talk-show that pushes all the boundaries helping women take back control of their sexuality. Mama Zembi tells Amanpour the various sexual positions she recommends for women.
But then we are informed that women in Ghana who are not getting sexual satisfaction in their marriages are not talking about it and so are not able to educate their young girls.

As I sat on the worn out couch in the living room, my heart beat so fast and strong that I felt it was going to fall out my chest any minute. But I held on tight to the already tired armrest and hoped for different news. My first girl, the very first fruit of my womb. You have set a good pace, just the right one for your younger brothers and sister to follow.
I was in a hurry to experience a world away from my small village lit in darkness. I was ready to see the light, walk in it and be the light. A journey for a new life, with new people, hopefully, better food and better dresses.
I was ready for fun, a lot of it. As for my books, well, it was never a problem in a dim, difficult environment with little facilities.
How was it going to be a problem in the city with life and better facilities? Book was the least of my worries. I knew it, felt it. Everything about me screamed so loud about where I came from, a place not many will be proud of, let alone boast of.
