“Gender privileges will always exist no matter how much people complain, and nothing can be done about that cos we are not the same. Women have their privileges too that men do not have. These are just the peculiarities that come with belonging to any of the genders.”

Oxlade got signed to Columbia Records UK after his sex scandal, whereas Tiwa Savage reportedly lost multiple endorsement deals after hers; What a world. Don’t mean to be a killjoy but this alone promotes gender bias in today’s society & it’s appalling to say the least. No shades.

Even as the endorsement of Oxlade by the Columbia record not about his sex tape. But I support you fully. The judgment and behavior towards women is something else. Oxlade was even celebrated in Lagos and so while tiwa was call names.
