A woman’s place is in the kitchen, is an European proverb – singer Seun Kuti


Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti in a post he shared on Instagram lashed out at African men who hold on to the popular proverb “a woman’s place is in the kitchen”. 

The singer said that the proverb originated from Europe, and he admonished African men to stop attaching their toxic masculinity to African culture. He added that real Africans elevate feminine form. 

Read what Seun Kuti wrote; 

A woman’s place is in the kitchen? Which kitchen? Whose kitchen? Not our ancestors kitchen! This proverb is European without any equivalent in any African language. So before you start attaching your toxic masculinity to African culture ask yourself this, do I know African culture? As an African what culture practices of African heritage do I engage in? Religion education liberation?

If the answer is none, how come u want to suddenly become African to subjugate and oppress your woman? Ain’t no such thing as half way crooks. You are either African or u aren’t , there is no picking and choosing especially when you want to dump ur toxic self on our women. REAL AFRICANS ELEVATE THE FEMININE FORM


  1. Words of wisdom. The unadulterated truth.
    Enough of this selective standard by men who are not willing to reciprocate.e
