Controversial media personality Daddy Freeze has slammed Nollywood actress and wife to irokoTV Boss Mary Njoku over her statement on marriage.
This comes after the mother of three, via her Instagram, stated that men are not doing their wives a favour when they pay bills.
Taking her Instagram, she wrote; ”Dear African men, You are not doing your wife, the mother of your kids a favour when you pay bills.
Marriage and Parenting is a partnership. You are merely holding up your end of the bargain. The greats marriages are built on Teamwork. When it comes to marriage, love shouldn’t be blind. Marry a team player.”
Reacting to the statement, Daddy Freeze called out the actress revealing that her message suggests a concoction of contradictions. He also added that the typical African man pays bills to own their wife who in turn ‘serves them’
He wrote; ”I’m struggling to understand this.Two people are working, but only one is paying the bills and it’s supposed to be a partnership? The banality of this in my opinion, suggests a concoction of contradictions, conveying a message which on the one hand recommends partnership, but then on the other, advocates for African men, whilst at the same time seemingly ignoring the benefits of a patriarchal society. Traditional African men don’t ‘partner’ with their wives, they pay bills and consequently own women, who in return serve them, while tolerating polygamy and concubinage.
Modernization propounds a social scheme denouncing some of the ‘benefits’ of a patricentric system, in favor of a balance in gender roles and privileges. I find it inequitable to select only the aspects of both constructs that benefit only a particular gender, increasing the responsibilities of the other while depriving them of their dividends. ‘Sharing’ instead of ‘paying’ the bills, would have been more appropriate in my opinion.”
