D’banj, P-Square Rise Against Domestic Violence
Some Nigerian male celebrities must be harvesting a new set of female fans after taking to their social media platform to condemn violence against women.
And we are not surprised since many of their female colleagues have been victims of domestic violence lately.
The Koko Master, D’banj on his twitter handle @iamdbanj advised victims not to be in denial or be deceived by such men that hitting them was normal.
“Don’t be deceived. Anyone who is telling you ‘men hit, its normal’ is either in denial or guilty. NO Excuse LEAVE!!!!!! God help us all.
“Love hath no Violence…If he hits you, he is not a man. He is a Beast. RUN! Stay safe!
“Give yourselves all the nomenclature you want. Wrong is wrong. When the head is cut off, the ears go with it. Be Wise. God Bless. I’m D’Banj,” he said.
Peter Okoye of Psquare was not left out of the reaction against violence women.
He challenged any man that has the intention to beat a woman to start with him (Peter).
He took to his twitter handle @peterPsquare to buttressed his point, “But seriously some MEN can fall hand. Next time if u want to beat or hit a Woman. Pls try me…”
However, his twin brother, Paul said that men also suffered violence adding that it was better for a partner to leave than stay in a violent relationship.
He reacted on his social media handle @rudeboypsquare, “I know many men that are going through domestic violence…. not only women…so guys!! Move on to the next one. Men don’t run, we move.”
Celebrities like Mercy Aigbe and Tonto Dikeh have recently made the headlines for coming out to accuse their husbands of brutality.
Some female celebrities also alleged to have suffered domestic violence include Monalisa Chinda, Fathia Balogun, Foluke Daramola, Muma Gee, Tiwa Savage and Chika Ike.
