‘Being an African woman in Africa is the ghetto’ Victoria Kimani
Kenyan singer Victoria Kimani has sparked a conversation online after narrating how she hates being in Africa.
In a series of tweets, Ms. Kimani said she has never felt safe or protected by any African man.
“I can’t lie… have I ever felt safe or protected by African men? Nope,” she said.
She added that being an African woman is such a traumatizing experience because African women are undervalued.
“Being an African woman in Africa is the fucking ghetto… it’s a traumatizing experience… it sucks. We are undervalued, underpaid, underappreciated, and simply under the radar… I hate it here… from the bottom of my heart. We won’t even talk about the men,” she wrote in another post.
She further called out African men saying they bring down women so that they only fit where their men want them.
“African women are Not your punching bag…not your sex toy, not your ego boosters, not your servant and certainly, not your enemy. African men reduce their women … constantly. Break them down to a size that serves them only,” she said
