In an interview with premium times, the screen goddess emphasized how toxic feminism is and how it does not appeal to her, she stressed that caring for one another as humans should come first and urged everybody to avoid gender war. The actress added that she performs best in movies that narrate the stories of women and the girl-child.
She said: “My passion for the girl-child and the women does not make me a feminist; I am a humanist”, the beautiful screen diva told Premium Times.
I don’t like this feminist idea because I think there’s a focus on this wing of feminism that is extreme. It’s toxic. I don’t want to be part of that. I want us to realize that you care about humans if you say you are a humanist
That means every individual: boy, girl, woman, man; everybody. My niche is the women and the girl child because there is so much to do concerning this issue in Nigeria.
