DJ Cuppy, daughter of billionaire Femi Otedola, has been slammed by feminists for saying she gave up on feminism because she couldn’t understand it. According to her, most people who associate with the struggle find themselves doing the opposite behind close doors.
In an interview she said,
“I used to consider myself a feminist, until I realised that I did not really understand it. I don’t like people who are hypocrites. People are out there speaking about women rights, but behind closed doors are doing crazy things.
“I will never come out as a feminist, because I am in a male dominated industry, so I have a certain scenario. I deal with men on a daily basis and I realise that they will always think that they are better than women. I don’t think it is going to solve it.
“But you must also limit the amount of attention you give them, because let’s be honest, the more energy you put into one thing, the less time you can into another.
“If I literally sat down all day and spoke about how hard it is being a woman, I won’t have time to sit here talking with you, because I will be somewhere in Alade market talking about how women need better rights.”
The interview didn’t go down well with Nigerian feminists on Twitter who aired out their dislike for her comment. See screenshots below.
