Nana Aba Anamoah, a Ghanaian journalist and media personality has reacted to videos depicting a group of women disrupting a hair extension fair on May 1, 2023, resulting in a chaos.
According to a tweet she shared, the women who disrupted sales were arguing with the wrong person; rather, the true issue is the Chinese, who have completely taken over the retail sector.
“They’re barking up the wrong tree, sadly. The real problem is the Chinese, who have wholly taken over the retail industry, not Nigerians,” she noted.

Meanwhile, Dr Chi, the CEO of the hair extension fair, addressed the incident on Instagram.
She stated that she would not lower hair prices in Ghana for the sake of causing trouble.
The incident has sparked a conversation about the impact of foreign traders on local markets in Ghana.
While some Ghanaians argued that foreign traders bring much-needed competition to the market, which benefits consumers, others are calling for stricter regulations on foreign traders to protect local businesses and industries.
