- Papa Collins tweeted that it wouldn't hurt men to cook for their wives once in a while
- While women and some men loved the idea, many men disagreed
- Men thought that culture is important and that everyone should "stick to their lanes"
A Kenyan man won the hearts of ladies on social media after telling men that cooking for their wives does not compromise their manhood but instead, brings out a unique and admirable character.
Women and men alike applauded Papa Collins for his modern take on relationships, asking him to shout it just a little louder or the men at the back keeping their ears closed.
The cherry on top of the cake, that is a man taking care of dinner for the family, were the adorable photos of the couple in the kitchen that accompanied the tweet and left ladies swooning and planning for their outfits for when they find their Prince Charming.
But it's not just women who respected Papa Collins perspective on men in the kitchen. Kenneth Kiriga, a Twitter user, added that he has recently discovered that has some serious cooking skills, now that he has been taking care of the cooking duties while his wife rests and recuperates after bringing his beautiful bundle of joy into the world.
Other users added that cooking is a means of surviving, after all, we all need to eat, and added that everyone should contribute to feeding their families.
Papa Collins’ bold new take on gender roles has, however, left some men feeling a little insecure, and some users asked how they could impress their ladies if they lack the required culinary skills. Another user, Susan Nyabena quickly added that it doesn’t matter, their wives will teach them.
Collins’s post brought talented men who wanted some recognition as well, out of the woodwork as many commented that they can cook too.
Some men were feeling a bit salty about being upstaged by Papa Collins and diverted attention by asking a very important question: who is taking all the photos of him and his wife cooking? The answer was, a photographer, of course. After all, who wouldn't want to document the heart-warming moment.
Others pointed out, that sure, the matching outfits are cute, but kitchen safety is just as important as knowing how to cook, and being fully clothed could prevent injuries, such as boiling hot soup accidentally falling on you.
As usual, not everyone was completely on board with the contemporary way of sharing household responsibilities, and some users argued that culture is important, and part of some cultures is that wives take care of cooking and cleaning while men's duties are to "lead and organise".
Daniel Osieko added that marriages where duties are shared tend to "go nowhere" or "remain the same".
Stephen Oluoch was worried, saying that cooking "once in a while" sets a dangerous precedent because their wives may just start expecting them to cook regularly.
