Nigerian-American writer, Nnedi Okorafor has slammed rapper T.I for monitoring his daughter’s virginity.
In a chat with Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham, the 39-year-old rapper said: “I think that most kids in hindsight, looking back, they always thank their parents for not allowing them to damage themselves as much as they could have.
“Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself. And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynaecologist to check her hymen.” MORE
Reacting to the statement t from T.I, Nnedi Okorafor wrote: “My God, I cannot believe that T.I. interview was real. There’s more than the headline. Look at what he says when told that there are natural ways a hymen can be lost: “So I say, ‘Look, Doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results expeditiously.'”
She added: “Backward. Hypocritical. Entitled. Sexist. I feel sorry for his children and I wonder about their mother/s.”
