A lot has been said about the current trend of women baring their cleavage in the name of fashion.
And veteran comedian, Ali Baba, seems to be deeply disturbed by the trend.
Ali Baba tweeted: “I have nothing against you dressing the way you like, but when you go above board, I am forced to ask, if she has a boyfriend; if she has advisers; if she has values? . . . But remember as African men, we do not like to eat food that is not covered. . . It’s unhygienic and unethical. But then again, it’s her body, wetin concern me? I may be wrong sha!”
Reacting to the comedian’s position, a fan said: “I understand you but there is relativity on the issue . . . Benin women baring their breasts is a perceived curse, in South African society, they have days when women go out with their breasts exposed, and on the day their king wants to choose a bride in full glare of the world. . . Because you see it as bad doesn’t make it so, it only shows the relativity in the way people see things.”
Ali Baba retorted: “Don’t differ to what you don’t know. Do you realize that it’s a curse when women go naked in protest? And do you recall that it’s only in extreme cases that women bare their breasts in public?”
The conversation continued with many buying into the argument of the comedian.
