Toke Makinwa Blasts Snoop Dogg For Promoting “Suffer Pass” Mentality

American rapper, Snoop Dogg, made a post celebrating Gucci Mane's wife for sticking with him amidst his philandering ways, jail term and his abuse of drugs.

The rapper was basically appreciating Gucci Mane's woman for not abandoning him and used the post to diss women, insinuating that ladies of today would move on to another man at the slightest issue.

There have been mixed reactions to the rapper's post. A lot of Nigerian women on social media blatantly disagreed with his stance and one of those is popular influencer, Toke Makinwa.

Toke, who was once married to fitness coach, Maje Ayida, feels the message from Snoop Dogg promotes the "suffer" mentality among women.

She wrote:

"Talk Tuesday!!!!!! I am deeply tired of this narrative though, this post pissed me off soooo much, why do we like to make women look like huge jokes? why is this the way to happiness? Why must you sell the “I suffer pass” mentality? This promotes low self esteem. I know for the most part of my life I believed that for love to be real, it has to hurt, I believed there has to be pain and real humiliation before you find peace and that mentality is BS. That mentality made me stay in crazy situations and do the most for the wrong reasons. Let’s stop pls. This is trash. Pls show me examples of men who stayed with a cheating woman, drug addict, jail bird, publicity with other men etc. show me a man who knew what he signed up for and even after she slept with his brothers and friends held her down till she became refined. If we can’t pick 10 men pls stop raising your daughters to hold down situations that might eventually break them, stop selling the narrative that women have to suffer before they find love. This is ruining lives for real and it should stop.
