Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeats legend, Fela Kuti, has hit out at men who tout about claiming that "a woman's place is in the kitchen" by saying that real African men elevate women and not otherwise.
In a statement in his official Instagram account in Tuesday, Seun said that there is nothing African about the proverb, adding that it has European handwriting all over.
"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 halfway 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," he said.
