Banky W Blasts Chimamanda Over 'Anti-Chivalry' Comments
Reactions have trailed the anti-chivalry statement made by Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie.
Artiste Bankole Wellington, aka Banky W, has described her recent comment as ridiculous.
Appearing on the American Daily Trevor Noah show on Thursday, Chimamanda spoke on the idea that it is an act of chivalry for men to open doors for women, noting that it conveys the wrong impression that women are dependent and weak.
Banky W joined other Nigerians on social media who are analysing Chimamanda’s anti–chivalry statements currently trending on Twitter.
Reacting to the now-viral statement, Banky W shared a post on his Instagram page @bankywellington.
“Chivalry is done not because women are a weaker sex, but because some of us want to be gentlemanly and romantic.
“Apparently, this is not ok to her, but to me, this is just reaching. I’m sorry but this is now getting a little ridiculous. To each his/her own, I guess”.
