Please why is it a crime to respect women for their hard work?

Why must you look down on women as “ashawo”?

Must you term every achievement of a woman as “ashawo”?.

To every hardworking lady doing legit jobs and doing well for herself, I AM PROUD OF YOU.

Soon we will celebrate our achievements in each other’s private jets.

To the other set of women that condemns her fellow woman and says; na Ashawo. She’s into runs. I pray you will be alive to see more achievements from the hardworking lady then you’ll remain in your gossip state begging her for help one day.

Dear men learn to respect and appreciate women. Stop this madness of attributing her achievements to “ashawo”. Many of us have sleepless nights working and packaging products as entrepreneurs. Many of us have sleepless nights reading and browsing. Many have sleepless nights handling one business or the other or even writing note of lesson for their pupils.

Appreciate every woman because without the neck, the head can never stand.
