Nollywood actor Seun Jimoh has weighed in on the recent debate surrounding equality in marriage, saying a man will always be the head of the house.
The issue has been trending on Nigerian Twitter for a couple of days, and gained greater traction when singer Tiwa Savage shared her opinion, saying women would never be equal to men.
She said: “…I also don’t think men and women are equal. I don’t think that’s how God created us, especially in the household anyway. So I think as females when we realize that yeah we can be strong as female in our career and stuff, but when we are home we have to realize that the man is the head of the house.”, she said.
The comments drew her plenty of negative comments on social media, but Jimoh came to her defense, saying what she said was right.
He wrote on his Instagram: “Tiwa savage said the man is the head of the home, some people are abusing her. anyone who thinks otherwise has no business getting married or being in a proper heterosexual relationship, the fact that you are a successful woman doesn’t mean you shouldn’t cook or clean, it is no excuse.
“I have successful women around me and they cook great, in time and as a duty. A respected husband is always a better husband, you can argue and fight all you want about this issue on social media, but the reality is the reality , a woman that cannot respect and acknowledge that her husband is the head has no business getting married and if she does should not be shocked if she eventually has to leave the marriage sooner or later. A disrespected man will either beat you or leave you except the man has no value in himself. we will talk about the man another day.”
