A twitter thread by media personality, Noble Igwe, has sparked off a conversation on Twitter.
In his Twitter thread, the media personality opined that Igbo women are ”lazy, don’t like working, and just want to sit back and enjoy their husbands’ hard-earned money”. He said unlike Igbo women, Yoruba women are hard-working, build their houses themselves, and do not wait to inherit houses from their fathers.
He went on to advise men saying; ”find you a woman that is ready to work hard with you to leave things equally for your children, not the Igbo woman that is waiting on you to die first so that she can inherit and be called the head of home just by being “ Ori Aku”
His tweet thread reads
The Igbo women are lazy, does not like to work and just want to sit back and enjoy their husband hard earned money. They want to inherit their husband’s property and then inherit from their father’s house as well but do nothing but answer “Ori Aku”
See Yoruba women. Hard working,building houses and not really trying to fight for father’s house in Ibadan. When they want to make changes, they do but Igbo women will come and make it seem like someone is holding them down.
The Yoruba woman is a go getter. Breaking boundaries, doing new things every day and she does not even need a law to back her. Just her belief and living life on her terms. Guess what? They don’t need anybody’s permission.
Everyday you are seeking for permission from your village to thrive in Lagos ? Build a house and inherit it, nobody from your village will come to take it. There’s no culture holding you back from achieving things, why are so in on inheriting something when you can build yours ?
Why is the topic always on inheritance? Can’t you work for your own? You don’t need a husband to inherit . Have you seen Hausa women fighting for inheritance ? No, they go out and build
No wonder most people think that Igbo women are greedy. The argument can never be how” my Igbo culture stopped me from buying land in Lagos”, it’s always about what to gain from the patriarchy ridden people.
Kings, find you a woman that is ready to work hard with you to leave things equally for your children, not the Igbo woman that is waiting on you to die first so that she can inherit and be called the head of home just by being “ Ori Aku”
Tomorrow, you’d see other women tweet about how their mother willed things to them and how it helped them do better. These tweets don’t come from Igbo women, them and their mothers are waiting for their father to die first.
Ask yourself, what have you done to change the life of the girl child in your community? Is it Igbo men too that are stopping you?
In conclusion, any gender can hold any agenda. While some of our concerns are true, the real change comes from doing and not holding the sins of fathers over all Igbo men. Discuss issues as it relates to particular people, communities, villages and the Igbo land at large.
The Igbo man is flawed, just like every other man but you can’t deny the work that the new generation Igbo man is doing towards changing some of these narratives.” he tweeted

Why I Stopped Entering For Headies, Other Awards – Rapper, Vector
Nigerian rapper, Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, better known by his stage name Vector, has revealed why he stopped entering for the Headies and other awards.
The rapper in a post via his Twitter account on Saturday said he intentionally removed himself from getting involved in such competitions because he scrapped the idea of having to outdo other artists.
He also stated that he stopped competing with other rappers because he knows he can “easily beat them one on one.”
The rapper further revealed that he’s grown now and awards don’t mean anything to him anymore, adding that he doesn’t also care about money or clout and only wants to make music.
“Intentionally removed myself from the idea that I have to outdo mode9. It’s not necessary.
“Ask him about me in the studio and he will tell you. I don’t care about clout. I just want to make music. F*ck money too. That sh*t comes and goes anyway.
“I known how much my deal is worth as a rapper. But that’s not me because bragging only brings fake people around you anyways.
“Stay humble and live easy. Accolades are just accolades.
“Peace to everybody who deserves peace. As for the Headies, I stopped entering for it because I don’t want to compete with rappers (I can easily beat them on a one on one but that was Unilag).
“I’m grown now. Awards actually don’t mean anything to me anymore. Let new people win awards,” he said.
