Afro-pop queen, Tiwa Savage has taken to her Instagram page to lament about the challenges facing women in Nigeria.

Recall that in the past few days, issues affecting women have been at the peak of discussion on various social media platforms.

The controversial rape allegation by Busola Dakolo, against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, sparked this discussion.

A few days after the news broke out, a video of a senator Elisha Abbo assaulting a nursing mother went viral, and this, again, occasioned another round of outrage from feminists across the country.
Reacting to these issues, Tiwa Savage expressed shame in being a Nigerian because of the way women are treated in the country.

The singer expressed that she will do everything in her power to raise her son well to avoid treating women in a disgusting manner.

Tiwa my sweetheart , it's well  with you.  Me too! I'm embarrassed to be a Nigerian.  But I believe there is a reason why God allows us to come from Nigeria.  It's not by chance, Let's thank God for everything.  Super Tiwa Savage  my sweetheart, I  stand with you  girl!!! We have to stay strong until Jesus return.   It's well with you  and your cute son. Stay  well  and God Bless. Aunty from u.k

Your utterance is right and good. the society at large including media world has to be blamed for what is going on in the nation recently.
Imagine a new release by Naira marley promoting mast*****tion. Yet women danced to this song and even promote it.
Clean your house and i clean my own, then there will be sanity in the entire community.
In the olden days things like molesting women are very uncommon. May be if we retrace our steps then the entire can experience sanity again.

Nigeria is not the only nation where women are treated badly.. yet we dont hear citizens of other countries say they are embarased to be a citizen of that country... we need to learn to respect our homeland when voicing out the ill done by the govt.

If you are a traveler,I mean internationally,then you will find out that our story gets out there,and at the airports,you will find reasons to be embarrassed that you are a Nigerian.
