Nigerians slam DJ Cuppy over understanding of feminism
Nigerian DJ, Cuppy has been slammed by Nigerians on Twitter after she spoke about her views on feminism.
In an interview on City FM, DJ Cuppy 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, right? You know 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 certain scenarios, where I have to, I don’t really have to, water myself down. I deal with men on a daily basis and I realise that they will always think that they are better than women.”
Her views on feminism has been criticised by Nigerians on social media.
