Popular Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti, has taken to social media to berate men who mistreat their wives and children.
In a post shared via his Instagram page, the singer stated that African culture doesn’t encourage violence against women and children.
He said this while addressing men who hide under the guise of being African to justify their actions.
In his words,
“All this people that turn African just to beat their wives and children. There is no part of African culture that encourages violence against women and children; spare the rod and spoil the child, A woman’s place is in the kitchen are European Abrahamic proverbs.
“What is the African version what is the African equivalent of these proverbs. Please tell me below, because una crase dey do press up! You aren’t African except in location! You don’t practice anything African except the small language u speak! Your holy land is Jerusalem and Mecca! Your most valuable possessions are you European thoughts and things! But as soon as u want to break your equally European wife and child, you claim African? Come close I want to ask u something, Are you mad?”

In other news, Seun Kuti has advised parents to begin sex education with their children at a young age.
The father of one, who gave this advice in a post shared via his Instagram page, said it’s high time parents stopped shying away from conversations about sex with their kids and taught their children about sex.
According to him, everything in Nigeria today is centred around sex, from images to songs that these children are exposed to.
He went on to say that 14-year-olds had sex in his generation, so it’s no surprise that the age for youngsters in this generation has plummeted.
