Battabox heads out to the streets of London to find out if perspectives of African men staying at home to be hands-on fathers changes in different cities.
There are some interesting responses from both African men and African women.
“It’s very difficult as an African man because I’m not a lazy man!” says one man.
“In African culture you must work to provide for the family.”
“Yes, certainly, there’s nothing wrong with that,” says one man. “Otherwise you are killing the woman slowly.”
“From where I come from in Ghana – men go out to work, not stay at home,” says one woman.
