Temmie Ovwasa, a Nigerian singer better known as YBNL Princess, says women and queer people suffer worse fate in the hands of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) operatives.

In a post on her Instagram page, the 23-year-old singer made a case for women and gay people in the country.

She said that despite the hardship women and gay people face, they still come out to protest.

“Next time you open your st*pid mouth to utter misogynistic and queerphobic bullshit, remember that if you’re going through fire, women and queer people probably have it twice and hot. Despite the misogyny, the pain, the insults, we show up every time,” the post read.

One of the comments on the post advised Ovwasa to focus on the #EndSARS campaign as every Nigerian is affected irrespective of their gender and sexual orientation.

“Its everyone’s fight actually, let’s push that notion,” the comment read.

She, however, replied the fan saying that she speaks for women and gay people because they have it worse.

“Every battle you fight, we fight times 2 so yes, everybody’s fight but I speak for women and queer people. If inclusivity bothers you, unfollow and block.”
