Emmanuel stressed that though women can be stubborn “But as a man, you should know how to control such situation. They can be very provoking, but as a man you should be in control rather than letting that situation control you.”

On why he is so passionate about women, Emmanuel explained that he has so much love for women because they are amazing being that needs to be protected.

“I just love women; they are amazing, beautiful beings that actually need to be protected. I have an amazing relationship with my mum and I will not tolerate it when another man tries to hit my mum. I also have a beautiful sister and I can't imagine seeing her in such a situation. Women are very vulnerable, so it's easy for them to lose their lives in the process,” he told the Nation Newspaper.
