Superstar Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage, has taken to her Instagram page to lament about the pains woman face. This is coming in reaction to the viral video of Senator Elisha Abbo assaulting a female staff a shop in Abuja.
She also talked about all the issues women are facing in Nigeria today, stating she is embarrassed to be a Nigerian.
I dont know where we went wrong as a nation that women are treated so badly. This past week has been filled with very disturbing news towards women.
I personally can no longer keep quiet anymore. I have to do more than a post.
Kilode gan na, do we deserve all this?
Today I am actually embarrassed to be a Nigerian. The way women are treated is DISGUSTING.
I don’t care what backlash comes from this, I said what I said.
WTF I’m so shaken by this, WHY WHY WHY.
Mothers, wives, little girls being abused, raped, underpaid, disrespected.
I have a son and I will do EVERYTHING in my power to raise a man.
One that will love a Queen and protect her so help me God.
The hate is too much, how can we continue like this. In EVERY sector women are bashed CONSTANTLY for things men get away with
Fuck outta here with that backward mentality
If she is successful she must have slept with one chairman
If a man cheats on his wife, well that’s naija men for you
If she is raped, why did she wear that in the first place
Fucking toxic masculinity and entitlement in this society. We are women, we are to be protected REMEMBER
No man, I repeat no man can handle the heartbreak, the pain, women go through on a daily basis.
Let’s not even start with labour pains or raising a child
And you can’t love and protect her.
SHAME ON YOU men abusing, raping and everything else Una dey do.. You are physically stronger than us. SHAME ON YOU COWARDS
