Yemi Akisanya Addresses Men Who Hit Women in New Vlog, “It’s a Sickness … Find Help!”



Project RAW - respect a woman - yemi akisanya - emmanuel ikubese - the noisemakerYemi Akisanya is back again with Episode 6 of his vlog, The NoiseMaker.

In his video, Yemi states this episode is dedicated to Mr Nigeria 2014 Emmanuel Ikubese‘s anti-domestic violence campaign, Project R.A.W. – Respect A Woman.

For more about the campaign, click here.Yemi Akisanya The NoiseMaker Episode 6

In this episode, Yemi did something different by showing the views of some young Nigerians – Boye Sobitan, Nkechi Doka and Ify, who said our patriarchal society, and a culture of expressing anger and repressing other emotions is part of the cause.

Yemi encourages women in this situation to speak up and run away, and says men who hit women are cowards and punks – “it’s a sickness, it’s a disease, find help.”


The NoiseMaker is produced by ToksVisions.

    Domestic violence is not just about anger, it is about exerting power. Most of the people who physically abuse their wives and or children wouldn’t dare lay a finger on their boss or co-workers when they make them “angry”. I just don’t buy the whole “angry” excuse. You abuse someone because you believe that you have have some type of leverage (whether physical, emotional) over them. That is the only way to explain why a spouse or child anger you to the point of exerting violence; yet, a friend, colleague, or boss who angers you does not lead to physical violence. Cowards.

      He’s trying to save his reputation from last week
      Yemi Akisanya, we don’t think you respect women. That post you did last week shows you don’t hit women physically but you want them to be slaves… Either way it’s awful

    I am glad that you have decided to venture into an issue that really matters, something which we will never get tired of hearing or reading about.. Cos lord knows that layers of make up and tons of bleaching by another human doesn’t pose risk to your life and mine. It not even our “cuppa tea ” . If you get an opportunity to have a platform, use it to discuss crucial issues not petty things like makeup and all that jazz, cos we are not here for that., ok? Good.

    please this boy should go and sit down. How can you be fine like this and be making noise everytime! Watched his video advising women to become housegirls in the name of collecting ‘house key’, now he’s making a video on domestic violence? Can’t even be bothered to watch it. Am I supposed to take you serious? If you are going to be making sarcastic video (I’ve convinced myself he was being sarcastic in his other video) then do that, and be sure to let us know. Personally can’t take you serious.

    You’re still fine sha, but your attempt at being funny/sarcastic is overshadowing it

    Welcome Yemi! More men need to speak out against domestic violence. It is scary how many men in our society find this totally acceptable. This is a thing of shame on the men and the women must be protected.

    Kudos to him for making sense this time. But from his last vlog, you can tell that this boy (I refuse to call him a man) subscribes to the gender caste system caused by our patriarchal society. And believe me, things he mentioned in his last vlog subtly contribute to domestic violence in the home .
