Nigerian singer and youngest son of Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti, has taken to social media to slam African men who believe a woman's place is in the kitchen.
According to him, that belief is not African but European as the true African believes in elevating the female form and not subjugating it.
He went on to slam toxic men who know little about the African culture but are quick to defend their need to oppress women by saying it is part of the culture.

Sharing a powerful photo of a group of armed women, he wrote: "A woman’s place is in the kitchen? Which kitchen? Whose kitchen? Not our ancestors' kitchen! This proverb is European without any equivalent in any African language. So before you start attaching your toxic masculinity to African culture ask yourself this, do I know African culture?
As an African what culture practices of African heritage do I engage in? Religion education liberation? If the answer is none, how come u want to suddenly become African to subjugate and oppress your woman? Ain’t no such thing as half way crooks. You are either African or u aren’t, there is no picking and choosing especially when you want to dump ur toxic self on our women. REAL AFRICANS ELEVATE THE FEMININE FORM."
