When a person, most especially a public figure makes a statement against women and women rights, it riles social media up and gets pretty much everyone talking about it. That is exactly what DJ Cuppy’s opinion on feminism is doing.
Dj Cuppy’s opinion which she aired on her interview with City 105.1fm yesterday is causing a lotta stir on social media, as it should! Considering the high pedestal a lot of Nigerians place her in the industry, most people found her understanding of feminism rather uninformed. Omo, she fell many people’s hands o! Listen to what she said at the interview below:
"I stopped being a Feminist because I don't like Hypocrites" – DJ Cuppy

However, Nigerian men as expected did not disappoint with their comments.
Here’s what a few people had to say on twitter:
Feminism is a genuine struggle for equity and equality. I think its Bullcrap for DJ Cuppy to say the reason she stopped being one is cos of hypocrites, their hypocrisy did not/will not stop you from being a real feminist.

By the way, I'll say one other thing re: Cuppy / non-feminism. I do not think that every woman must be a feminist. It is a choice. You can decide not to be, that is your prerogative and you shouldn't be insulted for it.
BUT, don't drag feminism if you decide to opt out.

Lol cuppy is 90% of upper class Nigerian women. Don’t need feminism and definitely don’t care about women who do. Fuck all of you. When the revolution happens we coming for y’all first.

Leave DJ Cuppy alone.
Face your bitterness in peace.
She doesn't want to be among women who hate men for no justifiable reason because that's much of the feminism we see in Nigeria & Twitter.
Even Linda Ikeji who asked y'all to stay celibate was collecting prick low key.

Can we all agree to stop crucifying celebrities when they say shit that’s outside their realm of expertise. DJ Cuppy is literally paid to play music and make you dance. Don’t be surprised when she doesn’t give the best answers regarding feminism.

Whatever DJ Cuppy says is her opinion really,however I'll expect that if you are confused about a particular thing,you can read about it instead of just going with the misnomer and slandering good values.Misandry is NOT feminism.

Many people who claim to be e-feminists don’t actually understand what feminism is all about and throw around crassly flawed ideas and rhetoric about what they think it is.
Don’t drag DJ Cuppy for distancing herself from what she clearly doesn’t understand.
It’s her choice.

Remove feminism from that DJ Cuppy’s statement and you will realize that nothing she said made sense, add feminism back and it still doesn’t make sense ??♀️??♀️??♀️

Here’s what we think about this whole brouhaha. To each his own opinion right? What’s yours?
