Toke Makinwa has gone on Twitter to call out Nigerian men who are praising Kim for being instrumental to Kanye West’s billionaire status, while criticizing Nigerian women for not being as supportive.
Forbes announced days ago that Kanye West is officially a billionaire after his sneaker line was described as “one of the great retail stories of the century.”
Though Forbes valued Kanye West’s net worth at $1.3 billion, Kanye reportedly sent a text to one of their employees, saying: “It’s not a billion. It’s 3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”
Reacting to Kanye’s billionaire status, Nigerian men praised Kim for standing by her husband even when he was in debt. They also brought up the report that claimed Kim Kardashian paid off Kanye’s $53 million debt.
Nigerian women were compared unfavourably to Kim Kardashian and were found wanting.
Responding to those men, Toke pointed out that Kim stood by Kanye because he stood by her too. She added that Nigerian men will never marry or support a woman like Kim due to her past, yet they want Nigerian women to do for them what Kim has done for Kanye.
“Reading some tweets about some Nigerian men praising Kim for ”rescuing” Kanye while in debt and all of a sudden Kim is now your standard for ride and die. the times we live in. how many of you ride for your women like Kanye rides for her? Nice try though, funny AF.”
lol….. life issues…… but heyyyy its different strokes for different folks.
