Some Nigerian celebrities have taken to their social media pages to express their displeasure over the buttock comment made by singer, Naira Marley.
During the week, the ‘Soapy’ singer set a lot of tongues wagging when he tweeted that a lady having a big butt was better than having a Master’s degree.
This caught the attention of many, as some described the singer’s comparison as the height of stupidity.
One of Nigeria’s talented actresses, Anita Joseph, who is known for showing off her enviable body on social media, said on all levels, making such comparison is not wise.
“It doesn’t make sense to compare having a big booty to getting a Master’s degree. On all levels, making such comparison is not wise at all. If you have natural assets, it’s cool but that’s little compared to having a Master’s degree.”
Also, Dolapo Badmus, Zone 2 Police Commander who is active on social media, shared her own opinion, saying she is yet to get over such comparison. She went on to say that the sanity needs to be restored in the country and public nuisance should not be tolerated.
“So, having a big butt part is now better than having educational or vocational qualifications? I still can’t get over this! I’m saying it again, we need to restore sanity to our system and stop tolerating public nuisance.
“It is mediocrity for anyone to applaud an obviously delinquent and unproductive dead duck (deemed a bad influence) hiding under the guise of making music– obnoxious music for that matter. My advice to younger ones– let no one confuse you. To have a good body is great but to be well educated is more important!” she wrote.
In the same vein, comedienne, Helen Paul, who recently bagged a PhD said, “It depends on the business you are doing and what you are using it (big butt) for. If you work in a beer parlour as a salesgirl, you won’t show your certificate; you’ll show your bum.
“But if you’re in academics, you’ll need a master’s degree. Also in movies, it depends on the character that you are playing. If you are playing a character of a person about town, you would need it. But if you want to play the character of a professional, you would need your degrees. Basically, it depends on what works for yous” she said.
