Veteran Nollywood actress Bimbo Akintola has expressed her view on the concept of feminism. She has described it as a toxic ideology.
The 51-year-old actress, who stated this in an exclusive interview with PremiumTimes, at a movie set in Lagos, said she is a humanist and not a feminist.
“My passion for the girl-child and the women does not make me a feminist; I am a humanist,” she said.
“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 realise 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.” she added.
