Find out why female celeb says she stopped being a feminist
Looks like a number of sympathisers of feminism might not take likely to DJ Cuppy's comments on feminism.
The billionaire heiress revealed this while granting an interview with City FM. According to her, she didn't really understand the idea of being a feminist after a while hence her reason for opting out of the idea.
"I use to consider myself a feminist until I realised that I really didn't understand it. I don't like people who are hypocrites. So people are out there speaking about women rights but behind closed doors, they are doing crazy things.
"I just feel like I would never out as a feminist because am in a male-dominated industry so I have certain scenarios i have to I deal with men on a day to day bases and I realised that they are always going to think they are better than women. I don't believe being a feminist will change things.
"I don't think it's going to solve it. I use to have issues when people felt like my dad made my career. After a while, I was like you know what I cant kill myself over it you cannot change the way people think. So if we go around as women trying to change the way men think we going to tire ourselves out. What we need to do is concentrate on achieving our own goals and working on ourselves," she said
This might not go well with a lot of women propagating feminism in the society. One name that comes to mind in Nigeria when the word feminism is mentioned is the award-winning author, Chimamanda Adichie. Recall a few months ago, she got a lot of people talking when she said she doesn't buy the idea of men holding doors for women.

Chimamanda Adichie back in June 2018, shared one of her personal views and this time she says she has a problem with men holding doors for women.
The award-winning author made this known during her recent interview with Trevor Noah. According to Chimamanda, even though she likes the idea of men holding the door for women, she has a problem with it.
"I think just like holding the door shouldn't be gender because we should open the door for everyone. I hold the door for men and women. I think the idea of sort of holding the door for a woman because she is a woman, I have trouble with, I'm quite happy for people to hold the door for me i hope they are not doing for the sort of idea of chivalry because chivalry is the idea of women are somehow weak and need protecting but we know that there many women who are stronger than men," she said
