“I Don’t Think Men And Women Are Equal” – Tiwa Savage
Speaking on the Midday show on The Beat 99.9FM with OAP Toolz Oniru-Demuren, on gender equality, Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage said she doesn’t think men and women are equal.
According to her:
“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 realize that yeah we can be strong in our career, but when we are home we have to realize that the man is the head of the house.”
