Stefflon Don, a British-Jamaican rapper best known for her relationship with Nigerian singer Burna Boy, has sparked outrage with her recent comments on Moroccan footballer Achraf Hakimi and his Spanish wife Hiba Abouk. The artist addressed the controversial issue of property division during a divorce on Twitter.
Stefflon Don contended that males should not be compelled to divide their money with their ex-spouses if they did not contribute to the creation of wealth. Her tweet added, “No woman should be entitled to half of a man’s earnings if she hasn’t worked hard and helped him achieve his success.”
The rapper’s comments come amid the media uproar surrounding the couple’s divorce, with many keeping a careful eye on the disposal of their assets. Whether a spouse should get a percentage of their partner’s earnings, even if they did not directly contribute to that money, has sparked arguments about gender roles, financial autonomy, and the nature of marriages.
Stefflon Don’s comments have fueled the flames as the Hakimi-Abouk divorce unfolds, causing many to weigh in on this heated matter. Whether one agrees or disagrees with her position, the argument over asset division and its consequences for gender equality is not going away soon.
