You don’t need 8 women twerking around you, Barack Obama advises youngsters
Washington, Feb 22: Former US president Barack Obama continues to be a busy man even it's two years since his final term in the White House got over.
From attending children in hospital on Christmas Day to participating in the funeral prayer of one of his predecessors, Obama is there all over, letting the world know that he is still a socially responsible citizen.
The same was reiterated recently at the MBK Rising in Oakland, California, where Obama gave some important advice to young men on how to carry themselves well and how it spoke a lot about one's sexuality.
The event was the national convening of My Brother's Keeper Alliance , which was launched by the former president in the wake of the success of his administration's My Brother's Keeper initiative.
Speaking on the occasion at Town Hall, the 57-year-old leader said if a man is confident about his own sexuality, he won't need several women twerking around him.
