Yemi Blaq says men who think women are no more than cooks and cleaners have problems.


The Nollywood actor, in a video, spoke of the value system underpinning the choice of female partners in Nigeria.

“Once the value of a woman is nothing but cooking and cleaning to you, you have a problem. I promise you. Check yourself. The truth is women are not supposed to be just about cooking. There’s so much value, ” the actor said.

“There’s friendship, companionship, advice, spiritual cover, support. If a woman can’t cook but she makes money and you guys can afford a cook, then why not? It’s painful when you see people make it just about these things.”


In 2020, Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), had advised men not to marry ladies who can’t cook and do chores.

“My sons, don’t marry a lady who can’t cook. She needs to know how to do chores and cook because you can’t afford to be eating out all the time,” the clergyman had stated.

“My sons, don’t marry a girl who is worldly. If you do, you have carried what you’ll worship for the rest of your life.”

On another occasion back in 2016, he said: “Marry a prayer warrior! Any girl who cannot pray for one hour non-stop, don’t marry her. Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! Pay her family a surprise visit, and you see how she is doing.

“If she is lazy when she is single, what would happen if she is married? Don’t marry a girl who cannot cook, she needs to know how to do chores and cook because you cannot afford to be eating out all the time.

“Don’t forget what I am telling you. It’s very important. There are those who I have advised before but ignored my advice. They later came back to me and said: ‘You warned us’. I am warning you now.”
