The Eight Foundation, founded by Miss Nigeria 2014 Ezinne Akudo, stared a viral weekly campaign against sexual violence tagged “Break the Silence” where several stars were given a chance to take a bold step against rape.

The “Break the Silence” campaign was put together to encourage survivors of sexual violence to speak out.

In a society where rape is not spoken about, The Eight Organization encourages women and the society at large to speak out against the dastardly act. This weekly campaign lasted for a month with different participant expressing their thought about sexual violence in different quotes.

The campaign was done with Timi Dakolo, Niyola, Dolapo Oni, B-Red, Beverly Osu, Reekado Banks, Shaydee, Saeon, Ketchup, Taje Prest, Liz Awoliyi, JJC, Denola Grey, Dimeji Alara, DJ Jimmy Jatt and many more.

The Eight Organization has committed its staff and resources to protect survivors legally and rehabilitate them using our experienced counselors.

    Great, but let’s not be one sided in creating awareness about rape. Women rape too both men and other women, men can be raped too by women and men, condemn rape as an act and stop the gender specific pronouns. Its just plain ignorant.

    BTW hope the copyright of the original writer of “her clothes provoked you, your face provokes………..” was acknowledged.

    @ dert are you a rapist? If yes and all this words none touches you then you are hardened, but if no then just waka pass because they are not talking to you. Am not a rapist but some of those words honestly touched me, and i reflected on what the victims feel after being raped.

    “Real men don’t rape” ehhh no. The wording is bad sha. It’s a really good initiative. The more this issue is discussed, in schools, homes, and media, the better.

    I still can’t forget #NoRubber suggesting the California shooter go rape a girl instead. And Basketmouth”s rape joke ????
