Singer Seyi Shay Says She Isn't A Feminist..

Nigerian singer, Seyi Shay in an interview with TheCable Lifestyle talks about feminism, charity and her latest single.
When asked if she’s an advocate of female empowerment, the 'Murda' singer said, “I’m not a feminist,  I just believe in the principles of human rights so I fight for it”.



Seyi who is championing a cause and actively works alongside United Nations women and girl-child empowerment campaign explained her passion.
“A friend in South Africa who was sourcing for the project was interested in what I was doing with my own charity- ‘A Ray of Hope’, that focuses on less privileged children, women and the ‘girl child’, and decided that I would be the best candidate to represent Nigeria for this global campaign.”



“I plan to continue to lend my voice and my platform to similar causes. Most importantly I want to set a great example for all young girls out there.”
In a celebrity life filled with meetings, events, travelling back and forth from place to place, Seyi says she would be fulfilled if she had her own family.


According to her, “Touching the lives of people all over the world with my music, giving hope and inspiration to my generation, living for humanity and having my own family.”

Men and Women are not equal.

Men have roles to play and females have roles to play.

Nature made the roles different.

When confused, please go back and read Genesis.

I don't know what all this feminism wahala is.

I so want a family too. God help me. Amen

She's smart. She knows feminism is rubbish.

Why be a feminist when you can be an egalitarian?

Yall should look up the meaning of both words.

Feminism I think is one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented words of all time. She needs to fully understand the concept. She is advocating for the "girl" child, yet does not see herself as a feminist. Ok. Seyi seeing as you want the international spotlight on your humanitarian efforts, hit the books and be more informed.

Dude educate yourself.
Feminism is a fight for equal opportunities, women's right and legal protection NOT gender equality.
I don't blame you anyway, I blame the women who claim to be feminists when engaging themselves in beer parlor and social media banter, defending/opposing things like cooking, cleaning etc. Feminism is way deeper than that.

I hv done that oh but still nothing happened

Esther 👸 said...

Sheyi,why you dey fall hand?
See how you're exhibiting crass ignorance??
I like you oo.

Confusion is when a female says she isn't feminist but humanitarian but has a charity org that focuses on "women" and "girl-child"
Why not "humans" and "boy/girl child" since you're humanitarian?

Stella please you need to use your platform to tell some confused people that feminism just seeks for equal rights for humans,male and female alike.
Please feminists are not a group of disgruntled women oo!
Anyone who tells you that,is equally confused.

Esthy said...

OK oooo, I Don see am so,I done read am ND I Don hear am. Good for her

@Nwa Nlecha pls try and educate yourself and do not let your knowledge of something be formed by what you read on blogs.

The word you should use is that men and women are created differently. When you are treated unfairly at work because you are female please do not complain, after all YOU are lower than your male colleagues and they are superior to YOU.

Port Harcourt's Finest said...

Sharap there. Who asked you? And so what if she's a lesbian.

Robyna Fenty said...

Fine face no brain. Feminism is the fight for women's right. Women's right are human right. Therefore if you fight for human right you fight for women's right making you a feminist.

Most Nigerian women do not know the meaning of being a feminist.

Sandra Unachukwu said...

Miss robyna. What exactly is women's right? Did you even take time to understand what she said? Feminism- a toil the devil uses to cause katakata

Nwa Nlecha said...

This miss Robyna or whatever ur a stupid girl. All these girls rushing to call other girls 'no brain' end up sounding dumb. Don't just read, understand before you comment. Robyna Goat

Well said. Would have understood her better and even applauded what she is saying if her NGO was not focused on the girl child and women's rights. I think she's in denial which is sad. I don't advocate for crass feminism like some of the unnecessary and vain glorious or aggressive posts I see on the internet. I think the more privileged women like her deny feminism, the more women pass off the chance to promote equality. While I agree that all humans should be treated equitably, there should be no denial that women especially in rural Africa suffer discrimination and evil perpetrated as result of gender inequality. Admitting this and wishing to correct this is feminism, a branch of humanism. So you shouldn't agree to be one and deny the other. She should just say she is not feminocentric or chauvinistic in the sense that she does not favour one gender above the other or hate the other gender
