Nigerian Afro-pop singer, Yemi Alade has been attacked by netizens for stating that women face more obstacles than men.
The award winning singer and performer shared an image depicting men and women on the same track. However, the image shows obstacles such as pots, pans, laundry lines on the track line of women while men have no obstacles in front of them.
Captioning the image, the ‘Johnny’ crooner wrote on her Instagram page:
“Sometimes the Obstacles iN OUR WAY might be your LACK OF SUPPORT,your constant need to dismiss us for the satisfaction of your ego,your ignorance about the CONSTANTS in our lives ; hormones and biological occurences that keep us alive and functioning ,your silence when we are in need or in danger,,your need to makes us prove ourselves Again and again and again and AGAIN.
Sometimes the Obstacles aren’t are put there by other females ,to err is human 樂.
This is obviously a one sided picture with only the perspective of a woman being considered. Men ALSO have Obstacles but indeed this Is a woman’s perspective. Support More Females Whenever you can.Start with your mothers ,sisters,friends,neighbour’s. Be kind today.”
This did not sit well with netizens who made their displeasure known in the comments section.

emmanuel_worthwhile said: “I Disagree With You, Is Not Because You Are A Lady, I Don’t Why You Guys Don’t Give Men Accolades They Deserve, Stop Giving Women All The Credit, Speak Truth About The Men Too! Men Provide Almost Everything In The House, So If A Man Buys Clothes For You, You Still Expect Him To Wash It For You??? Men Support Alot!”
