Sure that she can afford them first as a women, she continued to say if your bank balance can't give you the life you want then don't expect men who are in a relationship with you to afford your standards and asked where are your parents if you are desiring,
And said women who use the word Sabaweli are prostitute and social media found this as slut shaming because there are people who make money out of it such as sex workers.
