The Media Blog: So, basically, this stupid ThisDay story blames ‘feminism’ for Ireti Doyle’s marital issues

You have to read the stupidity to believe it.

They even blame Mo Abudu for giving Ireti Doyle new roles.

According to this Thisday story, “Then came media mogul, Mo Abudu, into the mix. Also a broadcaster with stints in NTA Network and STV, Ireti starred in some of the Ebony TV founder’s productions like the critically acclaimed Fifty and the recent box office wonder, The Wedding Party. The two movies especially placed her on a pedestal yet to be rivalled. And the new level of success came with a new breed of single, wealthy friends; feminists, who don’t believe in the marriage institution, one is tempted to say. It is now being argued that she might have envied and been influenced by the freedom being enjoyed by her new friends. For a 50-year-old mother of five, Ireti and Patrick can’t keep mum forever, lest the little legacies they have worked hard to build over the years would be vaporised on the altar of rumours.”Thisday story, “Then came media mogul, Mo Abudu, into the mix.
