Nollywood actress, Funke Adesiyan, has counselled women not to kick up a fuss when their husbands cheat.
“Leaving a man because he cheats is like relocating from Nigeria to America because of rain. News flash: it rains everywhere. Find a good man who loves you and appreciates you. Every other thing can be worked on. Men are naturally born to cheat. Look beyond this flaw and focus on how he treats you”she wrote.
While some of her fans supported her position, others kicked against it.
In a veiled reference to Adesiyan’s unmarried state, one of those who disagreed with her held that single ladies and baby mamas are really not qualified to discuss cheating in a legal marriage.
Following the reactions she got on the post, Funke came on her page this morning to defend herself. Read what she wrote after the cut …
“Good morning guys. I read many comments from my last post and I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s funny that it’s women who are answering for their men that the men don’t cheat on them. My sisters, let the men answer for themselves. The truth is a bitter pill to swallow. You cannot answer for people. I stand by my position 100%. I know that as a modern woman, we aim to break away from the norm and be as westernised as possible but believe me, it happens everywhere. It’s only those who got caught that are referred to as offenders. Not many men can sincerely say they have been with only their partner for 10yrs without “playing”. It doesn’t make them bad people, it just makes them men. #factfile #nofilter #skingoals”.
