Nigeria music diva, Tiwa Savage has thrown some pepper into the eyes of some gang of feminists who have set out to distort the customary role of women to be submissive to their men.
Speaking on The Beat 99.9FM radio station in Nigeria about gender discrimination, she said it’s important for women to work extra hard and become successful like the Oprahs but that doesn’t mean women can be equal to men.
“It’s real. I’m not going to say I’m completely comfortable with it but it is what it is. You have to deal with it. If it means you have to work 10 times harder than your male counterparts, don’t complain about it, do what you have to do. We all celebrate people like Oprah and Mo Abudu and we don’t actually realise what they have to do to get to that point. They probably had to do 20 times than their male counterparts. Once you get there, you don’t complain about how you get there. So, whatever it is you have to do as a female, you just have to get it done.
I know I’ll (ruffle) a few feathers but I also don’t think men and women are equal, I don’t think that’s how God created us that way… especially in the household anyway. So I think as females when we realise that yeah we can be strong in our career, but when we are home we have to realise that the man is the head of the house”.
BellaNaija has further reported that the “All Over” singer refused to talk about her relationship with her husband, Tee Billz as to whether they are back or not. She, however, said what she’s doing with her her husband privately should remain private.
