Fear Women has been the number one trending topic on the micro-blogging site, Twitter since the early hours of Wednesday, July 1.
Nigerian men have taken to social media to reveal how they were cheated on, jilted and left heartbroken by their former lovers, partners and even current girlfriends. In fact, the social media platform has been littered with the gist of downtrodden men who believe that there is more to break up narratives being shared online by women especially.
Specifically, men are characteristically known for being thick-skinned and holding on to their emotions.
The male gender rarely spill their guts about a flawed relationship or being taken advantage of. However, many took the center stage on Wednesday morning. They chose to speak their bitter truth unapologetically; while accepting that being heartbroken is a pivotal phase in attaining masculinity.
It is uncertain where the theme ‘Fear women’ propagated from but it could be traced to Dr Funmilayo and his alleged partner’s rape and domestic violence story. Dr Funmilayo is a popular Twitter user who is based in the United Kingdom. He was called out by a lady who claimed to be his girlfriend.
She alleged that the medical practitioner has been sexually and physically abusing her. (Read the full story here).
The Twitter influencer has since reacted to the allegations and has shared what transpired between them.
In posts he shared on Twitter, he disclosed that Bola is not a UK-based Nigerian doctor; but only travelled from Nigeria to the UK to see him after they got close in November 2019. Olufunmilayo who recalled having sex with the female doctor twice said it first occurred when they were drunk and after they were sober.
