Nigerian radio personality, Toke Makinwa has challenged men to pick out ten of them who stood by their ladies during the time of their rough patches.
The visibly angry TV host took to her Instagram page to react to a post of an American rapper, Snoop Dogg. Doggy uploaded a picture of Radric Delantic Davis, an American rapper popularly known as Gucci Mane whose wife stayed with during his torrid moment.
Despite being in and out of prison, Keyshia Ka’oir stood by her man amidst all the drama. They recently got wedded to the admiration of all.
“Everybody wants this, But what y’all forget is she was with Wild Gucci, on drugs Gucci, cheating Gucci, in jail Gucci, publicity with other women Gucci | This is Gucci after therapy/rehabilitation | This is a street Man Groomed in his 30’s after he’s been at his lowest | Point, this is a RIDER who knew what she signed up for, Yall other females is with another dude after a couple fights,” Doggy wrote.
The post seemed to argue that women should endure trifling behaviour from their partners with the hope of getting benefits at some point in the future. This didn’t, however, go down well with Makinwa who wondered why it must always be a case of women standing by their men and not otherwise.
See her reaction below.
“Talk Tuesday!!!!!! I am deeply tired of this narrative though, this post pissed me off soooo much, why do we like to make women look like huge jokes? why is this the way to happiness? Why must you sell the “I suffer pass” mentality? This promotes low self-esteem.
” I know for the most part of my life I believed that for love to be real, it has to hurt, I believed there has to be pain and real humiliation before you find peace and that mentality is BS. That mentality made me stay in crazy situations and do the most for the wrong reasons. Let’s stop pls. This is trash.
“Pls show me examples of men who stayed with a cheating woman, drug addict, jail bird, publicity with other men etc. show me a man who knew what he signed up for and even after she slept with his brothers and friends held her down till she became refined.
‘If we can’t pick 10 men pls stop raising your daughters to hold down situations that might eventually break them, stop selling the narrative that women have to suffer before they find love. This is ruining lives for real and it should stop.
