Toyin Lawani “educates” men who are angry that she said they’ll wash plate.
Toyin Lawani has taken to Instagram to “educate” the men who are angered by her statement that women are taking over and men are going to wash plate.
The serial entrepreneur made the controversial statement at Interior designer Ehi Ogbebor’s 35th birthday. Ehi had just unveiled her mansion and invited friends over and while gushing over Ehi’s achievement, Toyin Lawani made the statement.
She said: “We be man, we’re taking over. You guys are joking, you’re going to wash plate.”
She went on to add that men always think any woman who achieves what Ehi has achieved did it by selling her body or by getting involved in fetish things.
Well, her statement caused outrage as men called her out for suggesting that women are taking over from men.
Toyin has now released a new video to address it. In the video, she mentioned that women can never be men and when she said “we be man” she meant that they have achieved what most men cannot achieve.
She added that woman can not do everything men can do, so her statement was not meant to take away from the importance of men.
Addressing the issue of plate washing, Toyin said there are two types of plate washing: the one you lick with your tongue and the one you wash with your hands.
She then questioned why Nigerian men always think they are too big to wash plates. She pointed out that a man doing chores in his house shouldn’t be seen as demeaning. She added that men in the western part of the world, even Nigerian men who live there, do the dishes. She further advised Nigerian men to change their mentality and stop looking down on women.
