So yesterday, the wife of the Ooni of Ife, Olori Wuraola Otiti caused quite a stir after she revealed that she is not a believer of gender equality. While speaking at the Emerging Women’s Forum in Maryland, USA, she explained that women have very pivotal roles to play
but cannot be equal to men. She also mentioned that relationships fail
because women want to act like the men.
“I am not a huge fan of gender equality. We can’t be equal, We cant be men. We have our roles to play here, a very pivotal one.
Her Majesty went on to speak about the powerful roles women play and
how women should tap into their powers by exploring themselves in order
to reach extraordinary heights, as opposed to fighting for power with
their male counterparts.
The modern pattern of feminism has succeeded in limiting women of the
heights they could reach; gender equality is unrealistic. We can never
be equal with men, we are here for a great purpose, we have our roles to
play we are powerful and we are a force of nature.” she said
Well, actress Uche Jombo doesn’t quite agree with her!
And then OAP Freeze shared his own thoughts too.
The loquacious OAP, who recently had a very messy break up with first wife, submitted his own point of view in an interview with Genevieve magazine.
“The concept of being a feminist is something that denies many women
of having a husband,” he said, adding, “there are no roles for men and
no roles for women.”
Though he says feminists never find
husbands, he turned around to contradict himself; feminists do marry,
but he expects them to act in a certain type of way.
“When you find yourself in a
situation, you react to it accordingly,” he said, and continued, “if you
marry an African man, you should know that you shouldn’t tell him to do
the dishes unless he chooses to help you out.”

The concept of being a feminist is something that denies
many women of having a husband. There are no roles for men and no roles
for women. When you get to a situation, your intelligence, experience
and your gut feeling should guide you.
When you find yourself in a situation, you react to it accordingly.
If you marry an African man, you should know that you shouldn’t tell him
to do the dishes unless he chooses to help you out. I can mention quite
a few feminists. Rather I would give a quote from ancient Rome that
says, ‘Women rule the world; but not by stomping down their pretty
Women that have ruled the world have done so by
manipulating men and using what they have to get what they want.
Demanding authority doesn’t work. I am not a feminist and would never
Women need to be careful not to create an imbalance in the society because it would be at the detriment of their children.
Let’s be careful not to create an imbalance that will turn Nigeria into another America where everyone has a mum and no daddy.”
So kfbers, what do you think about all these?
