Media personality Toke Makinwa, has slammed “all” African parents, dubbing them the “worst in the world” as they ruined the lives of their children with unorthodox child-raising values.

The 35-year-old OAP, in a recent episode of her vlog, vented about the parenting values among many African families, which according to her was “screwing up” lives.

In her words:

“Thanks to African parents for ruining our lives. Growing up in an African home, there are certain things we never had the balls to say. Even now, I’m 35. I still can’t stand up to my parents,” she said.

“African parents are the worst set of parents in the whole wide world. You never have an option on things that are coming in an African home. As a child, you’re told what to read in school.

“They don’t tell you what you’re good at but what they think you should be doing. It’s like, ‘I want to have a doctor, so my child must read medicine.’ Even if you do shit in maths, you’ll be an accountant.

“African parents don’t apologize. They’re never wrong. Doesn’t that bother you? How dare you say they are wrong? You almost become less confident because of the scoldings of an African mother.”

While addressing her relationship with her parents, Makinwa said she still looks away when sex scenes play out on TV in the presence of her mother — even at the age of 35.

She continued saying;

“Our parents have sex. But we can’t envision it. Things happened to me: If a boy calls you on the phone or writes a love letter, you’re finished! Going to church? We did it because they wanted us to,” she added.

“They told us to stay away from boys. We did for so long that we don’t have boyfriends. But when you’re older and are yet to marry, they call all sorts of pastors to pray for you. Something is wrong!”

Popular Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage came out in full force as she lashed out at a journalist, who reviewed her ‘Celia’ album.

The journalist, Motolani Alake, who works in Pulse Nigeria, did not mince his words as he strongly criticized her latest album in an opinionated piece, and he did not make an exception when he referred to her career as a ‘struggling’ one.

The article titled, ‘Tiwa Savage’s struggling brand and her hilarious endorsement of ‘Mungo Parking’ , received plaudits and criticisms from social media users.

It also caught the attention of the ‘Koroba’ crooner. Savage wasted no time in schooling the journalist on Twitter, and she also tackled the media house as well.

Taking to Twitter, the fuming mother of one reacted to the critique and she wrote;

“I’m glad you know it’s YOU guys I was talking about. “Because say I quiet no mean say I be fool” – don’t try and turn nigerian media against me to hide your guilty conscience. Ask all the media houses I have great relationships with them. What you did with this is pure EVIL.”

In a fit of rage, the singer mentioned that her son, Jamal has made more money than the journalist and the media house he works for.
