Twitter Agog As DJ Cuppy Reveals Why She Stopped Being A Feminist

Popular Nigerian Disc Jockey, Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy, has stirred up a hornet’s nest on social media after she revealed why she stopped being a feminist and concentrated on just making herself a better entertainer.

In a recent interview with City FM, Florence, who is the daughter of oil magnate, Femi Otedola, said she stopped regarding herself as a feminist because she does not really understand it.

In the interview, she said:

“I used to consider myself a feminist, until I realised that I did not really understand it. I don’t like people who are hypocrites. People are out there speaking about women rights, but behind closed doors are doing crazy things.

“I will never come out as a feminist because I am in a male-dominated industry, so I have a certain scenario. I deal with men on a daily basis and I realise that they will always think that they are better than women. I don’t think it is going to solve it.

“But you must also limit the amount of attention you give them because let’s be honest, the more energy you put into one thing, the less time you can into another.

“If I literally sat down all day and spoke about how hard it is being a woman, I won’t have time to sit here talking with you, because I will be somewhere in Alade market talking about how women need better rights.”

There is no gainsaying that her opinion will not go down well with a lot of people propagating feminism in the society and majority of them have begun to flakes at her on Twitter.

A section of Twitter users also backed her.
