Stop sexualising women with your contents – Sydney Talker urges colleagues

POPULAR skit maker, Sydney Egere, better known as Sydney Talker, has expressed displeasure over the way his colleagues sexualize women with their contents.

In a post on Twitter yesterday, the content creator admonished his colleagues to cut down on contents that portray women for their physical attributes.

“My fellow skit makers, please let’s start reducing the yansh and breast idea. Me self don tire for some skits wey I dey see nowadays,” he wrote.

Sydney’s tweet comes a few weeks after another skit maker, Mr Macaroni was criticised by the nursing community for allegedly sexualising female medical workers in one of his videos.

Reacting to the backlash, Mr Macaroni argued that the skit was not meant to degrade nurses.

“Let me use this opportunity to address those always pushing the narrative that most of my content is with women.

“First thing you should know is that won’t stop! I play other characters. Serial philanderer series, in-law series, professor hard life series, politician series, Debo series, social issues series.

“These are all different series and contents that portray our reality. So don’t think for a second that I will stop featuring freaky-freaky because of you.

“Also, Mr Macaroni will not stop portraying real-life situations in his content. All of Mr Macaroni’s contents are also open to constructive criticism. We won’t always agree on everything. But we can always do better”, he stated.
