Popular media personality, Toke Makinwa has lashed out on all African parents over how they bring up their children.
On a recent episode on her Vlog, the media personality criticized the up bringing of all African parents, classifying them as the worst in the whole world for ruining the lives of thier children.
Toke Makinwa spoke about how African parents made communicating with them so difficult for their children whom she claimed never had a voice or the freedom to do certain things, using herself as an example.
The 35-year-old OAP revealed that she still looks away when sex scenes play out on TV in the presence of her mother — even at her age.
She added that the failure of African parents to discuss matters regarding sex and their prohibitory stance on having boyfriends has caused many to have relationship problems in adulthood. Toke Makinwa said:
“Thanks to African parents for ruining our lives. Growing up in an African home, there are certain things we never had the balls to say. Even now, I’m 35. I still can’t stand up to my parents,” she said.
“African parents are the worst set of parents in the whole wide world. You never have an option on things that are coming in an African home. As a child, you’re told what to read in school.
“They don’t tell you what you’re good at but what they think you should be doing. It’s like, ‘I want to have a doctor, so my child must read medicine.’ Even if you do shit in maths, you’ll be an accountant.
“African parents don’t apologize. They’re never wrong. Doesn’t that bother you? How dare you say they are wrong? You almost become less confident because of the scoldings of an African mother.”
“Our parents have sex. But we can’t envision it. Things happened to me: If a boy calls you on the phone or writes a love letter, you’re finished! Going to church? We did it because they wanted us to,” she added.
“They told us to stay away from boys. We did for so long that we don’t have boyfriends. But when you’re older and are yet to marry, they call all sorts of pastors to pray for you. Something is wrong!”
