Seun Kuti Speaks On The Rightful Place Of Women In The Society

By Akanni Dorcas

Seun Kuti, the youngest son of Fela Kuti has used his Instagram page to comment on the age-long belief that African women belong in the kitchen.

According to the singer, the proverb, ‘A woman’s place is in the kitchen’ is of European origin and has no equivalent in any African language.

He went on to state that real Africans elevate the feminine form and not subjugate it.

Kuti shared a photo of armed women and 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. REAL AFRICANS ELEVATE THE FEMININE FORM”
