Popular comedienne, Anita Asuoha, better known as Real Warri Pikin says people accuse her of controlling her husband due to the support he gives her.
Warri Pikin stated this in an interview with Punch.
She said, “They say I am controlling Ikechukwu. They should leave my husband for me. Once a marriage is happy, people will say the husband is a ‘mumu’ (fool), and that the woman is controlling the husband. I hear that a lot of times.”
The comedienne said she gets complete support from her husband and children for her brand.
“My husband and my children support me a hundred per cent. If my husband does not support me, I would not grow. Seeing that it is what makes me happy, he supports me.”
She also spoke about people who give her unsolicited advice about her marriage.
“If the person is older, I would just say ‘thank you’. But, I would go ahead to do whatever I want to do that I know is right. But if they are younger, I might insult them. If a man wants to be part of his children’s life, let him. It mustn’t be the woman’s responsibility alone.”
Warri Pikin also emphasised the post she made a few days ago that some married women are single mothers.
According to her, “Many married women are single mothers because they are left to take care of the children alone with little or no support from their husbands.”
The comedienne also proffered suggestions on how women can get their husbands to help them, “Women should stop being enablers. If your husband does not support you with chores and childcare, or if he used to support you and stopped, especially if the two of you are both working, you need to communicate with him about it. Two people are working but only one person comes back to do the chores; that is wickedness. If you are a housewife, that is an entirely different situation.”
