Burundi's First Lady supports women in song.
Burundi's First Lady, Denise Nkurunziza, has released a song urging men in her country to desist from abusing women when couples fail to get pregnant.
The song, titled Umukenyezi Arengeye Kuyyara Gusa (A woman is more than just for giving birth) was shared on social media, featuring Nkurunziza counselling a man who is seen verbally and physically abusing his wife.
"You are of no use in this house. Your belly is always full of beans, while other women's bellies are full of babies," the man says.
49-year-old Denise, who has been married to President Pierre Nkurunziza since 1994, called on husbands to support their wives.
"Women are not created just to be called mothers. They are capable of much more," the First Lady says in the song's chorus.
She also emphasised that infertility affects both men and women, and can only be confirmed by medical practitioners.
Denise, who frequently preaches together with her husband, is an ordained pastor and has been featured on several religious tracks.
