The fast rising actress Toni Tones thinks the Nigerian artist Peeshaun is not in the place to determine what women decide to call themselves.
Peeshaun had taken to his Instagram page on Sunday, January 13, 2019, where he posted a write up about women not being satisfied with being called queens but now want to be addressed as kings.
“Some women are not satisfied with such a perfect title as QUEEN (a title that totally depicts POWER and COMPOSURE) They want to be called KING. When a woman starts calling herself King- it doesn’t prove she’s strong, it shows she’s WEAK!” he wrote.
It didn’t take long before Toni Tones stormed his comments section to call him out over the comments. In her response, she wondered why he was bothered about women deciding to call themselves whatever name they felt like addressing themselves.
Leave people to call themselves what they want Skuki. Anybody calling themselves king does not make them weak. That is your personal opinion. Why are you personally so bothered by what people choose to call themselves? That is the real question. And I’ll give you a quick lesson, initially all Rulers were called king, male or female… the wives of kings were called queens and that title filtered through. But initially, anyone who ruled was called ‘King’. Stop fueling unnecessary fires, please. Allow people to live their lives how they want. Stop policing women. Police your fellow men, they need it more than we do. Thanks,” she replied.
