Tiwa Savage speaks on gender equality

Popular singer, Tiwa Savage has revealed her own opinion on the topic of equality between both sexes.


However, the singer raised a brow when she said she thinks men and women are not equal.

While speaking in a recent interview she declared that she doesn’t think men and women are equal, citing examples of successful women in the world.

Eventhough one would think, Tiwa being a woman will belong to the 'women are equal to men' school of thought but objected to this when she spoke about the extra cost women have to achieve before matching with a male counterpart.

“You have to deal with it. If it means you have to work 10 times harder than your male counterparts, don’t complain about it, do what you have to do. We all celebrate people like Oprah and Mo Abudu and we don’t actually realise what they have to do to get to that point.

They probably had to do 20 times than their male counterparts. Once you get there, you don’t complain about how you get there. So, whatever it is you have to do as a female, you just have to get it done. I know I’ll (ruffle) a few feathers but I also don’t think men and women are equal, I don’t think that’s how God created us that way… especially in the household anyway. So I think as females when we realise that yeah we can be strong in our career, but when we are home we have to realise that the man is the head of the house,” she told Beat FM.
