Toke Makinwa has come out to criticize “all” African parents, tagging them as the “world’s worst” and are responsible for ruining the lives of their children.
Radio personality, Toke Makinwa, on a new episode of her vlog, has called out all African parents, saying they are the worst because they have succeeded in ruining the lives of the African youths.
The 35-year-old OAP took to her vlog on Saturday, saying that many relationship problems happening now are caused as a result of the failure of African parents to discuss matters regarding sex and other important issues to their children.
“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.
“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!”
