  1. I BELIEVE AND SHARE IN such crusade against hostility towards women and children but again men deserves the utmost respect regardless how high or low they rank in their cadre..nollywood lately do not possess those qualities we all envisioned during its debut.it is now plagued with unclad and uncouth,divorce,obscene and larger than life tendencies.we all should return to status quo and behave like our parents did even when technology wasnt there for them to behold.time for change.aluta continua

    • Why are you calling them prostitutes ?. You are expressing exactly what women beaters think of women-that they are trashy and worthless. These ladies are using their popularity as celebrities to fight a societal ill and you are condemning them? I hope education will help us more in Africa so that we can focus on really serious matters at hand . Remember Mercy Aigbe’s husband tried to distract us with silly accusations. Be careful how you view women- you are either one or you have them as mothers, sisters and friends.

  2. While l commend the move, my advise is to also help these women and children to learn to respect the matrimonial home rules and regulations. If these rules and regulations are strictly followed by either party, violence. on its own will disappeared unceremoniously.

  3. Iron Bar and Musa Sule, the two both of you is dey wise like me. Na the same woman wey de supply me Igbo is also supply Una?
