A Nigerian popular night-club owner who leaves in Lagos and go by the name Pretty Mike, has been walking into wedding venue and other events with 2 ladies on a dog leash the past year. A first in Nigeria.
People on social media who recently saw the pictures condemned the act, saying it is demeaning to women and girls. Another group brought the says although it is demeaning, female music stars should also be condemned for doing same in their music videos. While some other groups believe the act is between some consenting adults, as the women agree to it and are possibly paid for it.
Just recently, Mike did the act again at an event and shared a video on his Instagram Page on December 29, 2016 with the same ladies on a leash. The videos and pictures began to circulate.
The videos are fuelling discussions on BDSM – Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism – a variety of erotic/sexual practices that involve the above mentioned, and other related activities.
As you can see in the pictures above, People around the event including policemen are looking in surprise but couldn’t do anything about it. With such act practised in most developed countries, many still believe it’s between adults and these women are happy, even posing in style and not complaining.
As African’s in the diaspora who have witnessed and seen most this, we would like to hear your say in the situation.
