    Personally the campaign name “Get Naked” is not proper, most especially when it has to do with teenagers. Teenagers will definitely misinterptret it.

    lets not crucify them, im sure they were trying to draw attention with the theme but was misunderstood. All the same, its a nice concept although i do not understand the part were the celebrities take naked pictures….hmmm

    The organiser is very pretentious. Because they do it in the Western world does it mean it applicable to our African/Nigerian value system – before crucify me, I am not trying to be a hypocrite here. But my point is, even in the West the concept of getting out nude in order to pass on a message is wrong as expressed by many. And many more even disagree that it is good art. And for this silly person/people trying to bring it to Nigeria pray to God to rescue your souls before you lose it completely because how does ‘bearing it all and getting bare in a public photo’ help to express the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS or protecting oneself against this disease? Common, do not deceive yourself because no one here is deceived. However, one word of advice: get your mum, your wife and your sisters out and take them nude and bear for Nigerians to see. That would sufficiently pass on the message. Anu afia!

    Hold on are you guys really that stupid with yourselves? They are doing a non profit campaign to raise awareness but yet you still have faults to pick. Why do you go out an make something with your lives rather than hate on others trying to better Nigeria. Never knew a campaign against aids has become a center to throw out idle opinions. Get your life…
