Mr. Lecturer

Eedriss Abdul Kareem singing about sexual harassment in Nigerian universities. Benin shares a border with Nigeria and this video rings true here as well. Notice how the girl dresses when she goes to meet her professor – once a professor decides to go after a girl, there isn’t much she can do besides try not to look attractive and pray that he loses interest.

The university administrations are rarely helpful, and in fact, girls who go to the administrators often end up either blamed for inciting the harassment or punished for reporting on a professor.

In this video, the girl accepted a failing grade to avoid sleeping with her professor. The part about him getting arrested is pretty fantastical, unless things in Nigeria are a lot different than here. And from what I’ve heard, they aren’t. Unless maybe she was the daughter of the President.
