Seun Kuti Schools African Men Who Argue That ‘a woman’s place is in the kitchen’

Nigerian singer and dad, Seun Kuti put up a post on his Instagram page where he lashed out at African men who hold on to popular proverb that says “a woman’s place is in the kitchen”.

The singer in his post, directed his message at men who look down on women and justify it by saying they are African.

Seun who is the last son of late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti who affirmed that the proverb originated from Europe, admonished African men to stop attaching their toxic masculinity to African culture. He added that real Africans elevate feminine form.

Seun Kuti 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.
