Veteran Nigerian media personality, Funmi Iyanda has explained why she prefers not to worship men.
The veteran media personality spoke in a recent interview with PlusTV Africa.
The multiple award-winning entrepreneur and Film/TV producer, said having grown up with her male siblings, she doesn’t outsource her responsibilities to the opposite gender.
Funmi Iyanda believes that a woman should work hard enough to be financially independent of any man.
She made this assertion , while speaking during the session earlier in the week.
According to her, she doesn’t want a situation where any man would carry her as a burden on his head.
“My relationship with men is very interesting.
I don’t worship men because I grew up with them.
I don’t want any man to carry me as a burden on his head,” she stated.
“I want to work with him, I am interested in him as a person.
If I am with you, I am with you for who you are and not what you can do for me.
If you can do so, that’s nice. But it doesn’t bother me because if I don’t do it somebody else will do it.
There is no scarcity in the universe.
The world is full of abundance.
That’s why I don’t worry and cannot worship any man,” Iyanda stated.
Speaking further, the founder of the Change-A-Life Foundation Nigeria, also said that she does not believe in mentorship.
She however admitted having the late fashion designer, Oluremi Osholake, better known as Remi Lagos in the past as a mentor because she had a great presence in her life following the death of her mother.
