Must Watch Video! “Can a Naija Man be a House Husband?” – Watch the Interesting BattaBox Video



In a world of role reversals and breaking out of the mold of convention, we find a lot of people still clutch tightly to societal and cultural norms.  Adeola of Battabox goes on the street of Lagos to ask men if they’re amenable to being “house husbands”.

Some of the responses were interesting: Q- Sir, Can you be a house husband? A -My religion does not permit it! Q – Sir, can you be a house husband? A- It’s not possible!

Guys, this one is for you!

Watch the video and share your thoughts.

      I second that…her blowing phoné for topics like these and the people she interviews, will totally throw the whole thing off…it irks me when other OAPs try to blow unnecessary phoné (especially the ones wey the thing no done for their mouth)…kudos to her and battabax for keeping it all the way real.

    *Hiss* These Nigerian men and their empty-headed pride/egotism meanwhile they are embarrassing themselves in other facets of life. Such as abusing females, acting like dogs in heat when they see a beautiful woman.etc.
    Your religion doesn’t allow you to be a househusband abi? Does this same religion allow you to beat & cheat on your partners etc?

      There’s is no need to paint all Nigerian men with the same brush. because some do it, doesn’t mean ALL OF THEM do it.

    if she earns more than me, that is ok but she must come home and do all her chores.She can pick up my manly roles but her female roles must wait for her. Who cares if she is tired? It is a woman’s job to take care of her family.

    One can not help but marvel at the injustice called African culture!
