If not 100%, then 99% of men today do not like waist beads because of what they heard about them. These people have been lied to.

Men, most especially believe that a girl can take their destiny, enslave or harm them through waist beads. This claim can either be true or false depending on who you are dealing with.

If you say waist beads are evil because of how people portray them, then, I can tell you eyeglasses, necklaces, chains, slippers, eyelashes, wristwatches, and other adornments that beautify you are also evil.

Before we can conclude whether waist beads are evil or not, we need to trace back to the origin of waist beads.

The history of waist beads says they are worn as a celebration of femininity, womanhood, healing, protection, fertility, and spirituality. It does not say that waist beads are evil. Therefore, Waist beads are not evil.

In African culture, waist beads are known and popular among women, especially the maiden and young women who are ripe for marriage for adornment.

It is a sign that a woman is mature to have a fiance in some parts of the African countries like Ghana and Senegal. While in other places, it is mere fashion and adornments equipment just like necklaces, wristwatches, eyeglasses, etc.

The belief that waist beads are evil comes with the spiritual works that some people do with them. It is believed that some women use waist beads to lure men and other unprintable acts. Even though this aspect of waist beads cannot be overemphasized, it is not enough reason to label waist beads as evil.

Apart from using waist beads to monitor weight gain and weight loss, other benefits of African waist beads are numerous. Below are a few of the benefits of waist bead.

Benefits of waist beads

• Protect pregnant women and the unborn child.

• Make pregnant women deliver safely in some African countries.

• Boost self-esteem.

• Monitor weight gain and weight loss.

• Make you look more attractive.

Should we call something of these great benefits evil?

If you will ask for my opinion, I would rather say "people are evil" and should not be "Waist beads are evil". I want you to know that it is not only waist beads that can be used to take destiny, lure a man, or do evil things. People use other things as well. So should we this label everything in the world as evil?

Are waist beads evil?

The answer is No. Waist beads are just an accessory for fashion and beautification of the body. It has been in existence for years and no record has shown that waist beads have done evil whatsoever to anybody while using them.

Waist beads have no power in themselves unless we give them one. Waist beads are innocent accessories. It is you and I that gave it the name evil. This is what we all need to know about waist beads.

Religious belief is also another problem for the African people. People of different beliefs accept that waist beads are evil because their religious leaders told them so. These are assumptions. And like I said earlier, it is because of what most people use waist beads for that sprung up this belief. I've not heard that is it written in the Holy Bible or the Holy Quran that waist beads are evil. (I have not heard about it)

I am not addressing religion here. That is not the purpose of writing this. I just wish that people; irrespective of their gender or belief could change their mindset about waist beads and stop labeling them as evil.



It is wrong to label waist beads as evil because someone believes it is evil or because society says it is.

We seriously need to change our mindset about waist beads and stop calling them evil. We need to learn how to adore our own culture and stop celebrating white people over ourselves all the time.

We all have to change our mindset about waist beads and rather concentrate on the people who use waist beads as evil.

Final Thought

I have just made my own opinion. This article is based on my opinion. I have nothing to say about religion, rather, people, in general, should change their mindset about waist beads being evil.
