One of Nigeria’s top female Disc Jockeys, DJ Cuppy, known in private life as Florence Otedola, has disclosed why she does not consider herself a feminist anymore.
The daughter of the oil magnate, Femi Otedola, speaking in an interview with City FM in Nigeria said she stopped regarding herself as a feminist because she does not really understand it.
She stated that “I used to consider myself a feminist until I realized that I did not really understand it. I don’t like people who are hypocrites. People are out there speaking about women rights, but behind closed doors are doing crazy things.
I will never come out as a feminist because I am in a male-dominated industry, so I have a certain scenario. I deal with men on a daily basis and I realize that they will always think that they are better than women. I don’t think it is going to solve it.
But you must also limit the amount of attention you give them because let’s be honest, the more energy you put into one thing, the less time you can into another.
If I literally sat down all day and spoke about how hard it is being a woman, I won’t have time to sit here talking with you, because I will be somewhere in Alade market talking about how women need better rights.”
