Lanre ‘Eldee’ Dabiri, Nigerian musician and tech entrepreneur, says the future of young girls is endangered due to the negative shows being watched on television.
The father of two girls on Sunday took to social media to rant about the celebration of “hoes” – an informal derogatory term used in describing supposedly slutty, loose women.
Eldee lamented the situation whereby young girls have few positive role models being portrayed on television.
“What are we doing to our children on this planet? Making hoes role models for young black girls is now hip? Young black girls now being further encouraged to aspire to be sluts/hoes/sex workers.
“TV shows survive on ratings. Stop supporting the platforms that are put in place to destroy your children’s futures by watching these shows.
“There’s nothing positive about using a professional hoe to teach children anything but how not to be a hoe. I have young daughters & the constant promotion of these hoes as black role models is a direct propagandist threat to their future.
Young black girls now being further encouraged to aspire to be sluts/hoes/sex workers. $8m to be a hoe evangelist? Wake up people!!!

“Is there nothing positive going on with black women? Where are the Silicon Valley success stories? Doctors? Real estate moguls?
“Can you name 10 successful black women as quickly as you can 10 successful black hoes? Now imagine who your kids’ female role models are.
“Yes I’m upset. I’m upset as hell because I have daughters. I’m upset because there is a deliberate effort by media to poison their minds.
“I have no personal problems with Amber Rose & I’m not judging her lifestyle choices, just stop making them “OK” options for little girls.
“Not a single show on TV teaching young girls to do better”, he added.
