Real Warri Pikin, one of Nigeria’s most-recognizable faces in comedy, has taken to her social media handle to address naysayers who are trying to sow a rift between her and her husband Ikechukwu.
“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,” Warri Pikin said.
Addressing the barrage of unsolicited advice she constantly receives, Real Warri Pikin said, “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.”
“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,” she added.
