Singer, Banky W says Chimamamda Adichie’s stance is ridiculous
By Patricia Uyeh
Nigerian singer turned actor, Banky W has reacted to the claims made by prolific writer, Chimamanda Adichie on chivalry while on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Wednesday, June 6th. The ‘Half of yellow sun’ writer had said that she doesn’t believe in chivalry and things like giving preferential treatment to women and children should not be based on gender and age but on ability.
Reacting to this, Banky W said:
“Chivalry is done not because women are a weaker sex-but because some of us want to be gentlemanly and romantic. Apparently, that is not okay with her, but to me, this is just reaching. I am sorry but this is now getting ridiculous. To each he/her own i guess.”
