A Zimbabwean man spotted in the streets of Harare walking with a baby on her back left the whole country divided as Shadaya shared his opinion. The man in his forties was recorded while walking with a baby and many ladies have praised the man as most men said he was being used.
In the Zimbabwean culture, it is not expected by many people in the society and if such a thing happens, then there comes a taboo. The general assumption is that a man is out of his depth and under the rule of a woman if he does such a duty. Culturally, such kinds of duties like cooking and sweeping are considered duties of woman. However, with the social dynamics changing as each day passes.
What Shadaya said about the controversial video
A trending video on Zimcelebs of a father carrying a child on his back & as expected all the wom£n in the comment section are calling him a "real man." That's how wom£n manipulate men into accepting & doing stup!d sh!t. A father is NOT a second mother!!!
