It’s episode 5 of ThreeSum!
The hosts are Lydia, Tunde and The NoiseMaker – Yemi Akisanya.
The producer, Toks of ToksVisions, left a long comment on Ink Eze‘s article, The Nigerian Men we are Raising, which spurred this week’s panel discussion.
Although the article did not state the issues are specific to Nigerian men, but rather, the points i.e. cheating, (domestic) violence, shaming women in public are encouraged, condoned or largely go unpunished amongst Nigerians, the panelists were discussing it from the point of view that the author stated they were solely Nigerian men issues.
- Lydia called the article ‘bullshit’ and posited it might be the same group of people commenting and agreeing with the points raised. She said she has a father who calls her brother in to kitchen to cook with him, and he joins him, albeit grudgingly.
- She also said to commenters of the article, “You really need to change your circle. If you’re in Lagos, move away.”
- Yemi – the NoiseMaker, agreed with most of the article, saying because the law is rarely enforced in domestic issues in Nigeria, it enables people get away with a lot of bad behaviour.
- Tunde dismissed it, saying Nigerian women, according to a study, are the biggest cheats in the world, and when it comes to domestic skills, he told people to check out his YouTube cooking tutorials.
