Women not equal with men – Tiwa Savage


Nigeria Pop star, Tiwa Savage has expressed her opinion on ‘gender discrimination’ by saying that she does not think men and women are the same.

The Mavin Records diva made the submission during a chat on “The Midday Show” with The Beat FM’s Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru who engaged her in a discussion on the subject.

The Award winning star acknowledged that women in all societies often have to exert a lot of energy into their exceptional achievements.

For her, powerful women like Oprah Winfrey and Mo Abudu represent a category of women who went through extreme measures to actualize their goals.

“It’s real. I’m not going to say I’m completely comfortable with it but it is what it is. You have to deal with it. If it means you have to work 10 times harder than your male counterparts, don’t complain about it, do what you have to do.

“We all celebrate people like Oprah and Mo Abudu and we don’t actually realize what they have to do to get to that point. They probably had to do 20 times than their male counterparts.

“Once you get there, you don’t complain about how you get there. So, whatever it is you have to do as a female, you just have to get it done,” she said.

  1. That title was misleading. The content showed she meant women have to work 20 times harder to be recognized. The way the title is worded, one would think she meant women are inferior, when all she meant was they are dealt a bad hand but have exert themselves to rise to the top. All women want is equal opportunity and equal recognition for equal effort.
