Florence Otedola, a Nigerian Disc Jockey, professionally known as DJ Cuppy, has refused to pitch her tent with feminists, stating that “she does not really understand it”.
The daughter of the oil magnate, Femi Otedola, revealed this in a recent interview with City FM.
In the interview she said: “I used to consider myself a feminist, until I realised 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 realise 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.”
