Erica Mena has a message for women who keep calling her husband, Safaree “corny.” “I find it kind of interesting how when a man is comfortable with being himself, loves life, makes the best out of things, isn’t fake hardcore trying to be hard. Ain’t calling queens out of their name. When a man is legitimately confident with himself. When a man enjoys life and enjoys making the best out of things,” Mena said.

“Dances because he feels good inside.  Says what he wants to say because he means it. And just really is a good all-around man. When a man is all around confident and is carefree. Is a jokester and vibes out. Isn’t pretending to be something he isn’t, why is that corny for y’all females?”

“I gotta take a moment to talk about this because it’s sad because a lot of females who are quick to call a man out of his name are the same to go after a man who isn’t happy with themselves,” Mena continued in a video. “So they’re bitter inside because they give their all to a man who can’t even love themselves let alone love them.”

“Love is a beautiful thing. I’ve been married. It’s about to be a year this September. And I really enjoy my husband. My husband has taught me to kind of take a deep breath and enjoy things. Make light out of things because a lot of what goes on in the world is out of our control. The anger and the way we get upset is pointless,” she continued.

“It bothers me because my man loves to enjoy living his life and that’s corny to y’all. It’s like us dancing and enjoying the fruits of our labor with our newborn baby is corny to y’all. And it’s really sad.”
