Jimmy Odukoya blows hot over entitlement culture in men
Nigerian pastor and actor, Jimmy Odukoya, has highlighted a concerning societal trend where men are raised with a sense of entitlement rather than being taught responsibility and accountability.
During a recent sermon at The Fountain of Life Church, Odukoya expressed his belief that society has failed by fostering an entitlement mentality in men while neglecting to instill crucial values.
Odukoya began by addressing the issue, stating, “Men have the mentality that a woman must submit because he is a man. If you’re asking for submission, what vision is she submitting to? I dare say that society has failed and we have raised a lot of entities boys In men’s bodies. You see, they have grown in age but have not grown in maturity, their physical DNA has changed but their mindset is still young.”
He continued by illustrating the flawed approach to raising boys, noting, “Society has failed because what you will find is that they tell the boy when he is growing up to sit down and not do anything ‘you’re a boy, ah ah don’t worry, relax it’s the woman’s job to clean, it’s the girls job to cook.”
Emphasizing the importance of teaching boys essential life skills, responsibility, and accountability, Odukoya challenged the prevailing entitlement complex.
“So You’re teaching the girl the girl responsibility from a young age, you’re teaching her accountability and hard work and life skills. But the boy, you tell him to sit down because he’s a man so he grows up with an entitlement mindset with no skills and no responsibility or accountability and then he tells women to submit to him, but what is his vision? You can’t call yourself the head of the home and you’re not doing anything, respect is earned and not given,” he stressed.
