‘It’s more important to be respected than liked’ – Burna Boy’s mum, Bose Ogulu to women

BURNA Boy’s mum, Bose Ogulu, in a recent chat with media personality, Latasha Ngwube, has dished some wise advice to Nigerian women.

According to Ms Ogulu, it is more important for women to be respected than to be loved. She further asked women to assure they carry themselves the way they want to be treated.

In her words, ”Carry yourself the way you want to be treated. If you make yourself an object, you’ll be treated like one.

Let people know there is a brain between your ears, when they do, they may be uncomfortable around you, but they will respect you. It is more important to be respected than liked. Be competent at what you decide to do. Or Learn competence in something, before you do it. Shut Up, when you don’t know what people are talking about, have the loudest voice when you do know.”
Naijatimes could recall that  Burna Boy won the Best Global Music Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards.

Twice as Tall won the award formerly known as Best World Music Album over Tinariwen, Antibalas, and others
