Popular Nigerian singer, Teniola Apata, better known as Teni, appears to have gotten into the bad books of Nigerian feminists, following her recent post on Twitter.
Teni in her tweet said feminists hold on to their ideologies till it’s time for a man to go down on one knee to propose to them. She added that there’s nothing wrong with a lady proposing to her man.
“Y’all are feminists till it’s time to bend on one knee to ask a man to marry you! Aren’t we equal?”
“Btw it’s not wrong for a woman to propose to her man!” the Billionaire singer tweeted.

The tweet which has since gone viral with over 11,000 likes, appears to have annoyed many women on Twitter, most of whom declared her canceled.
Some however advised her to educate herself more on what feminism really is, as they believe it actually is more than a woman proposing to a man.

@TeniEntertainer @Teni I know you know that Feminism isn't a show of hierarchy or about gender. It's beyond gender. Men can be feminists just like women. I know you already know. Perhaps, there is a reason for this tweet. Love and Light❣
