Nigerian comedian, Anita Asuoha who is known by her stage name, Warri Pikin has said she is tired of listening to people say she controls her husband just because he is always there for him.
Warri Pikin’s husband has been known to be a supportive husband and quite a gentleman. According to Warri Pikin, the people insinuating that she controls her husband are only saying so because they live together in peace and have tried their best to have a happy home.
“They say I am controlling Ikechukwu. They should leave my husband for me. Once a marriage is happy, people will say the husband is a ‘mumu’ (fool), and that the woman is controlling the husband. I hear that a lot of times.”
“My husband and my children support me a hundred per cent. If my husband does not support me, I would not grow. Seeing that it is what makes me happy, he supports me.”
She also dished out messages to those giving her advice she didn’t ask for, she wrote as seen below:
“If the person is older, I would just say ‘thank you’. But, I would go ahead to do whatever I want to do that I know is right. But if they are younger, I might insult them. If a man wants to be part of his children’s life, let him. It mustn’t be the woman’s responsibility alone.”
In conclusion, she wrote:
“Many married women are single mothers because they are left to take care of the children alone with little or no support from their husbands,”
“Women should stop being enablers. If your husband does not support you with chores and childcare, or if he used to support you and stopped, especially if the two of you are both working, you need to communicate with him about it. Two people are working but only one person comes back to do the chores; that is wickedness. If you are a housewife, that is an entirely different situation.”
