“Got to appreciate that I’m a Nigerian bc how I wan take bring pot down from fire with my teeth fgs.”

@SomtoAnierobi reacted:

“It definitely is. WTH? Did they make the man so something to prove he’ll always be able to take care of the family?”

@Chisomlbedu commented:

“Ha Nawa oo. Thank God this is not practised in Naija. How and where will I start from to bring pot down?”

@Marketer said:

“I won’t be surprised to see it’s men that introduced this yeye tradition.”

@omolara reacted:

“I just want to know why the whole community is preparing for women loosing limbs. What activities were they into in the Old days abeg?”

@Edidionglkpat reacted:

“Should a woman lose her limbs, she can still cook and take care of the husband” the same husband that is infact intact. Thank God I’m Nigerian.”

@raytony001 reacted:

“It’s all about food for African men. Even after the loss of limb, na food be their main concern. E no go better for culture and tradition founded on patriarchy. Why not ask the man to use his teeth to hunt animals Incase he loses his limb.”

@GangstaPeezay commented:

“Then we’re shocked with intense horror when a husband leaves a sickly wife. FORGETTING we are teaching men to only value women who ‘do-it-all’ regardless & anything else is a liability. In sickness and in health is only applicable for women. Miss me with that mess.”

@AustinRVXT said:

“This is why crumbling many aspects of African culture which is actually: SLAVERY should be everyone’s fight.”

@eekilaitoko reacted:

“In most cases iam really for tradition and culture but there are some things in this word I really don’t understand and I really refuse to understand and support. Couldn’t be me but to each his own I guess.”
