A man identified as Oniyangi Abdullahi Badmus has set the internet on fire with his story of how he rejected his wife's prepared meal because she didn't get on her knees while serving him.
It is possible that the Facebook user was just making a joke, however, such practices are real and women are subject to pressure of 'worshiping' their husbands or risk being tagged a disrespectful wife.
Badmus' post immediately went viral because many people could relate with such behaviour. There are men out there who would rather stay hungry and disregard their wife's effort in the kitchen for such apparent flimsy reason.
After all, many men expect that a wife's worth can be measured on how much she spends on a pot of soup. In fact, it has become a trend on social media and every other day someone is boasting of spending R20 or less in making a delicious pot of soup.
It's why Abdullahis' post is getting a lot of hit. First he shared the photo of a mouth-watering meal but revealed that he rejected such beauty because his wife didn't kneel before him while she served it.

On a more serious note, many women live with this reality and even think it normal as they've been socially conditioned to see their husbands as lord and masters.
It's probably why social media feminists are so angry. Some of their opinions can be described as straight from the gutter but their anger might not be completely misplaced.
Truth be told, there are various forms of domestic violence and emotional torture and verbal abuse are part of it.
