‘Our weather is made for scanty dressing’ – Aisha Yesufu tells those who say it is not African to be scantily dressed

Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu has hit back at those saying that it is un-African to be scantily dressed. 

According to her, African weather is made for scanty dressing and this is, in fact, how our ancestors dressed. She continued by speaking to religious people as well.

She said that if the religious people say that their religion stops them from dressing scantily, then they should ignore and stop forcing their own beliefs on other people.

She said: “When people say it is un-African to scantily dress I wonder which Africa? Our weather is made for scanty dressing and that’s how ancestors dressed. Go check the pictures of your grandparents and ancestors. Tattoos, scarification, tribal marks, men plaiting hair are all African

“If you want to say your religious beliefs stop you from dressing scantily then that is your personal business. Don’t impose it on others or say it is un-African to be scantily dressed. Africans are people with control over their desires. Find your lost control”
