“While I know how much we need some laughter in these times I still feel the responsibility to find ways to bring to light the causes dear to my heart and that I am very passionate about – equal rights and the true empowerment of women. Special thanks to all the men who are committed to same
Excerpt from @news18live… But while the challenge on Instagram is new, the network is a very-much real, very strong entity offline. Women in patriarchal societies have always been pitted against each other to make them feel as if every other women was in a competition against them. It takes years of unlearning this toxic practice to see and recognize women as other, actual individual beings instead of someone you’re constantly trying to one-up.

Then women build strong networks, or stepping up for other women, of calling out sexism when it happens to someone else, but most importantly for establishing a safe space, with other women. The network tells you, “I’m here for you.” And sometimes, that’s all women have ever really needed: the support of other women.”

However, Deyemi’s jokes didn’t go down well with Genevieve Nnaji who took to the comment section in a now deleted post (Deleted by Deyemi) to berate him.
