    No, it’s an individual responsibility. Yes, some women frustrate their men and torment mentally but the men has a choice to walk away or respond in a healthy manner than beating the crap out of the woman. No excuse at all. It’s an anger problem that needs to be addressed.
    African women stay blaming themselves for everything. Well, you can take the blame for over babying your sons, husbands and giving them a feeling of entitlement which eventually leads to character flaws.

      I honestly don’t see anything wrong with what Empress has said. You can control your actions but you can’t dictate other people’s reaction to your action. We see cases of some women hitting their husbands or badmouthing a man to the point of insanity and when the man retaliates people say a man has no reason whatsoever to hit a woman, looool! If u married a mad man he will beat crap out of you and I won’t blame him, if you married a calm man lucky you because he will walk away. At no time in this life will all men be calm, there will always be the ones quick to anger, do you as a woman fuel that anger? If you both see that your temperaments do not match, kindly walk away from the marriage/relationship to avoid shouts of Domestic violence.
      There are also the mad men who get mad without justifiable cause, once you see that walk away also, you can’t trade words or expect to reason with a mad man, he will beat you to stupor. I once dated someone who was perfect for two years until he hit me for no reason, I left the relationship sharply… no time abeg.
      My point is that both man and woman should do the right thing in your relationship/marriage. If it looks like your best will never be enough, take a walk.

    absolute nonsense Empress. Is he a child? the most ridiculous thing I ever heard. a woman should help her man stop his anger. Please women…. if a man should ever display anger that results in violence then it means he cannot express or manage his emotions…. it means he grew up observing violence, it means it would never change and you will spend the rest of your life walking on egg shells because you will not know what will trigger his rage…… it means you will have perpetuate the cycle with your children. Please women, you have a responsibility for your own life…….RUN…….or if you have to help….then get him to see someone else not you and you do that from a distance away.

    nonsense. only women that have not experienced domestic violence talk such nonsense.

    OMG!!! SMH!!! What other exclamation can I use here. You see this is what I mean by we need to address the Nigerian/ African woman’s mind/head before we can see a change whether it is with domestic violence or our attitude towards rape.

    First, the interviewer should have educated this lady that domestic violence is not gender specific I.e violence against women. So back to her question when a woman hits a man it is NOT called “mental violence” but domestic violence as well.

    Empowering the African woman is NOT going to be easy at all!!! Gosh so many things wrong with this lady’s comment. Sadly, many actually still subscribe to this school of thought.

    BTW, everyone wants to be pampered…pampering like domestic violence is not gender specific. This idea of grown men being put in the same category as “helpless babies” needs to stop. In my opinion this is just a form of “mental” I.e emotional abuse, (talk about emasculating) which is contradictory to the point this school of thought is trying to make.

    Grown men are not babies and should not be treated as babies, they are adults with adult responsibilities that should be held accountable for their actions just like women . There is no excuse for domestic violence, if the man feels tortured/oppressed, we have separation and divorce for a reason, no need for any one getting hit or committing suicide.

    With comments like these from a woman sef, one will wonder how we can move forward and empower not only women but men also to stand against domestic violence.
    Until we begin to fully accept the blame for our bad actions and not slightly blame the other person, na here we go just dey.

    i wish i can keep liking your comment. Men have refused to grow up, they want to be breastfed like babies. How do you become violent and blame it on anger, what happens to walking away. so only men are even entitled to be angry and have a standby anger manager. wehdone ma

    Men are babies, its this woman’s understanding of what are men is. Will a grown woman with babies already want a baby husband? no. Please let us grow up and speak like grown up. let us leave things that we don’t know about just slide. is she saying when a med take a second wife, then the first one is bad. what DO YOU CALL A MEN WHO GOT DIVORCE 4 TIMES AND MORE. are you saying he was married to bad women. stop your foolishness.

    @lol Is this one still a celeb? She’s more of a washed-up actress.
    I’m sick and tired of this foolish mentality of shifting blame. A girl is raped, she’s blamed for being seductive and wearing skimpy clothes. A wife is battered by her husband she’s blamed for not being submissive and labelled a witch. A young adult decides to steal or become a fraudster then blames the government for not providing jobs. We continue to raise generations who don’t realise that when you commit an error or crime you should take responsibility and face the consequences. How can someone in their right mind think it’s okay to say women should help men control their anger?? What rubbish. So a grown ass man should be babied and appeased like some toddler? Smh. It’s quite sickening that a woman still belongs to such school of thought in 2017. Please wake up. Any man or woman that hits their spouse should face the consequences. There is nothing like he/she pushed me to do it. Be responsible for your actions.

    Hehehehe you want to help your man/woman contain anger /psychotic episodes. Hummmm!. I can tell you how that’ll go down. Basically as a victim of DV you will be in denial, as part of your denial you will attempt to compromise and bend to his/ hers unrealistic expectations. Infact you will bend so much that you will see your own ears. Eventually you will look in the mirror and not recognise the person that looks back at your you will Infact despise that person. You then start to have sucidal ideation. Not good!

    Living in Nigeria, I’ve realized Nigerian women are more violent than the men. The real people suffering from violence are maids. If you hear and see how women, mothers with children treat their young maids, some even as young as 6. I personally saw a woman being let off at NAPTIP after pouring hot water on her maid, a little girl of 11 years.

    THIS is a troubling sentiment coming from a woman and to a significantly large extent validate the reason why some women choose to put up with domestic violence! FYI sis, show me a man prone to domestic violence (of any kind) and I’d show you a man in dire need of mental evaluation, anger management and possibly psychiatric assessment too – the whole damn nine yards with no bloody exception!!!!!! The problem is our inability to own up to this. We never want to admit that men are the main problem in a domestic violence situation and are quick to ask questions like: “what did she do to trigger it?” Excuse you? Its impossible to think two people in a relationship or marriage wouldn’t have any form of disagreement from time to time. But with argument digress to beating, it shows the man is mentally unfit to be in any form of union as he needs a profound mental overhaul. Anything less than this should be unacceptable in any lifetime! As a man, I feel mortified hearing a woman making light of a very troubling issue we have to deal with in 2017.

    I think both sex should help control their angers, most especially the woman.
    A Nagging and disrespectful woman, will never make a good home. She will always get kicked out from every home she finds herself, and even domestic violence might follow.
    Study your husband or spouse, and avoid that thing you know he doesn’t like.
    Never talk when he is talking.
    Never talk on top of your voice when you have the chance to talk.
    Never call him by his name when he is angry.
    Never try to make your points oversees his own at that time.
    Finally and most especially, Never Never and Ever Ever use insulting words on him, or you will get the beating of your life.
    Thank you!

      Wow!!! Are you being sarcastic or do you think you just wrote something sensible? ‘Never call him by his name when he is angry, like seriously? Maybe you should just tell the woman to bow down and worship him cos he’s angry. This is the reason why many women continue to endure their marriages walking on eggshells around their husbands because of lamebrained advice like this.

    Lol. When Timaya was showing her pepper during their relationship, why didn’t she help him manage abi control his temper? Lol.

    At your age you do not know that “Domestic Violence” is a gender neutral term? and that like rape/sexual assault men can (and are) victims and women can also be aggressors?
    The fact that women are disproportionately the victims of these crimes doesn’t mean that the terms only apply when it’s a woman on the receiving end.

    Yes you’re an actress and a celebrity, but biko read and educate yourself.
    There’s too much info out there today for you to be this unaware.
    It’s embarrassing.
