Speaking with Toolzo on the Midday show on The Beat 99.9FM, Tiwa Savage bared her mind about gender equality saying:
It’s real. I’m not going to say I’m completely comfortable with it but it is what it is. You have to deal with it. If it means you have to work 10 times harder than your male counterparts, don’t complain about it, do what you have to do. We all celebrate people like Oprah and Mo Abudu and we don’t actually realise what they have to do to get to that point. They probably had to do 20 times than their male counterparts. Once you get there, you don’t complain about how you get there. So, whatever it is you have to do as a female, you just have to get it done.
I know I’ll (ruffle) a few feathers but I also don’t think men and women are equal, I don’t think that’s how God created us that way… especially in the household anyway. So I think as females when we realise that yeah we can be strong in our career, but when we are home we have to realise that the man is the head of the house.
On her relationship with Tee Billz, the Mavin star said:
“we are doing what we are doing privately and it should remain private” as a response to Toolz’s question on whether they are back together.
Tiwa also talked about being in labour for 22hours before having her son Jamil, her stretch marks and how women are mostly blamed when issues arise in a relationship.
Do you believe in gender equality?
