Re: 360Nobs’ Wana George’s Highly Offensive Post – “Yansh Of Life: Kemi Adetiba Invites You To Jamaica [PHOTO]”

I don’t like seeing women, regardless of who the women may be, disrespected. I don’t need to be friends with these women, they do not need to be my sisters, relatives etc. for me to know that I just don’t like to see women disrespected. I just really despise when women are disrespected, I do. Also, when it is a woman that has done nothing to deserve such attempt to demoralize and disrespect her person or brand, I get particularly ticked. I am unsure who supervises the writings of Wana George a contributor at 360nobs but the headline above coupled with the follow up statement is highly offensive and disrespectful to women in general, Nigerian women and Kemi Adetiba an industry executive and music video director, the subject, they are posting about.

I thought Kemi actually posted the image on the web herself but in sharing the post on twitter and voicing my disapproval, she responded that she didn’t. Either way, the ridiculous statements and rude sexual objectification of her in this picture is unacceptable.

I am not sure what this contributor is getting at but this is uncalled for, extremely disrespectful and Noble Igwe and the executives that operate the 360Nobs brand and website should do a better job of supervising those they manage, including training them.

Your writers should not be cheapening the brand image you worked so hard to build and they should not be tinkering on legal liability; or have you lose the respect of the public and fellow media colleagues alike.

Hope this mess is not repeated again.

Kemi Adetiba is one of Nigeria’s top TV personalities today, and not only is she good at what she does, she has a very nice body too!

Check out the picture below and ask yourself, do you want to want to go to Jamaica?

    respect begets respect. if most women don’t want to respect themselves and willingly portray themselves as sex objects, how can they be respected? how can you respect a lady like cossy orjiakor that goes about displaying all breasts for the world to see. she recently said she will only cover her breasts when she is old: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2013/11/bombshell-will…. what of tiwa savage that was recently reported to have performed without undies and displayed her privates for all to see: http://davidvsnaija.blogspot.com/2013/09/photo-ti… what of miley cyrus, rihanna, nicky minaj et al: http://jezebel.com/the-problem-with-all-these-hal

    1. @Ter-ese. I don't believe because a woman fails to respect herself, that gives me the license to be just as disrespectful to her. Although the examples you cite are inapplicable to Kemi's situation. But since my introduction was broad to encompass all women, I'll address them.

      Again I don't believe, for example, that because Cossy has her breasts out for the world to see etc. that means I should disrespect her. If anything, it shows me she is in a very interesting and unhappy place and is for me to understand that, wish her well and inspite of it, with my dealings with her, respect her. How do you show someone their value or what it feels like to be respected so they may possibly respect themselves if you join in disrespecting, calling names etc. She could easily be our sisters, aunties, cousins etc. Most women do not set out to show their breasts to the world or private parts. Something happens that tells these women that to be accepted or loved or validated, this is what you do.

      It is not for me to heap more insults and solidify this false notion by tearing at their self esteem or womanhood. That's not my place. The same goes for Miley, Rihanna, Nicky etc. There is so much to say on this topic but in general, that's my philosophy and I find it works well.

      Cheers,
      Uduak

    Ms. Uduak, what is disrespectful about the headline 'Yansh of life' when our women/ladies especially the so-called celebrities have disrespected themselves by baring their bodies for all to see. For Christ sake, please address the main issue. Why do our women bare their breasts on red carpets? Should I shock you by saying the majority of these ladies are whores? Yes, I'll not regret writing this because only whores are not ashamed of baring their breasts. The other time, Lagos State Deputy Governor scolded Iyanya dancers for dancing without panties. It's time we stopped rationalising sin and speak the truth. Please, Iook at this issue beyond Ms. Adetiba's photo and talk to these girls (if you could) to stop denigrating womanhood by going naked in public in the name of fashion. Do you know that the fad among our celebrity ladies is to post their naked pictures on social media in the name of wanting attention? Are they not disrespecting womanhood? There is no acceptable excuse you can give for Cossy for showing us her breasts. Please don't rationalise a sin. What is bad is bad.
