Feminism is the fight for equality of women. However, the tag has become a controversial one on the Nigerian social media space as many people have mixed feminists up with men haters and people who are not sure of what it means.
Many times, there have been accusations on social media from men who feel like ladies who tag themselves as feminists are only looking for opportunities to bring them down even when they have no valid reason to.
Nigerian singer, Samklef, recently took to his social media page to speak on feminism particularly the advent of it in the country.
According to the music star, feminism cannot work in Nigeria. Explaining further, he said that many of these social media feminists go abroad and come back to ‘confuse good women’.
The singer also challenged feminists that if they are really serious about their cause, they should start from northern Nigeria where little girls are forced to get married.
He wrote: “All this girl go abroad come back come they teach wetin no fit work dey confuse good women......If feminist want to prove their point let them start from the northern Nigeria.... where kids are force to marry In the name of religion...If dey can win there I will start supporting them. Until dem. Love my women.”
