Just few days after the celebration of the International Women’s Day, a Nigerian singer, Innocent Udeme Udofot, popularly known as MC Galaxy asked his female followers to go naked and touch themselves intimately during his live Instagram video for N50, 000.
Sadly, some women did according to his bidding.
Disappointed at the singer, Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham condemned him while urging women never to sell themselves short for money.
Read her note,
Dear MC Galaxy, what you did asking girls to go naked for 50k is despicable, debasing, and bad in every way. You just further strengthen the believe that the easiest way women can get things is to sell their bodies. I sincerely can’t fathom what you need or gain from this despicable act when you could have checked in on porn sites.
I am not trying to be a moral judge, I am the least qualified to judge a fellow human, but just the way you used your influence and platform for this woman-debasing act, I am also using mine to stand against an act ridiculing women and further prove that some men are scum.
See what people like Linda Ikeji, Kemi Adetiba, Chimamanda, (Even your friend, Laura Ikeji), and other women are doing with their platforms, they lift other women by living, giving and not asking for nudes. You can as well follow examples of young men like Davido, Tunde Ednut, Wizkid and Banky W. My message to those girls that went naked on your page is this-please let’s do better, let’s stop making men like Mr. Galaxy think everything about women is money.
Don’t sell yourself short because of 50k, its the least of the money you will make in your lifetime. We are women, we are powerful, we are not cheap. With love always, Toyin Abraham.
