Following the social media outrage, Lolo Cynthia took to Instagram to explain what Ms Ikpe meant.

This part of the video where @kelechitalks gives her. Opinion have led to huge outrage on twitter. –

Let me say this, I believe we are quick to jump on anything that remotely discusses gender because of the clime we at – that being said, I am not innocent because the heading was click bait; for this I take full responsibility. –
However this was an interesting point and we were corrected that depression might not be the best word to describe it.. –

In this society we live in, we can be honest and realistic that there are a lot of changes happening especially with women. The last century have led to lots of breakthroughs FOr women and also brought up conversation around the roles we had once taken up. –

I believe that many of us have our identities attached to these roles and with this shift, it can be overwhelming to find where you belong in the ever changing world. –

My co-host made sure to highlight that both genders were struggling with this shift as women have also had to step up into certain roles that they didn’t have to engage in before. –

It will do us no good to continue to give into the outrage! We can’t fight for change and not be willing to discuss how these changes are affecting the dynamic of day to day activities and our views on identity and life in general. –
