Stella Damasus - BellaNaija - April2015001

Renowned Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus, wants African mothers to desist from advising their daughters to put up with domestic violence.

Damasus made the call in a statement she gave to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday.
The actress, who is adding her voice to the campaign against domestic violence, said lots of lives had been lost because of mindless violence perpetrated by some husbands against their wives.

She added that there was need to put an end to recurring domestic violence.

Stella stressed that no man has the right to hit a woman either a wife or girlfriend no matter the situation.
Let’s work together to put an end to domestic violence. We have lost enough people to this barbaric act.

“It is not right. African mothers, please stop telling your daughters that because it happened to you, it’s okay for it to happen to them. No man has the right to hit any woman even if it is his wife or girlfriend,’’ she said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    It is not a one size fits all. Every abused individual in addition to seeking help must evaluate the situation. Not all domestic squabbles would be addressed with the same type of solution e.g. running rather than working it out.

    • Really!

    Even BellaNaija commenters will advice a woman to stay. Marriage is so revered in Nigeria. Just don’t air out your dirty laundry.

    WOMEN DON’T SPEAK AGAINST IT COS MOST OF THEM ARE IN IT AND EVEN DEVELOP STOCkHOLM SYNDROME ON TOP!!!!
    DON’T TEACH YOUR DAUGHTERS THE RIDE OR DIE MENTALITY. RIDE OR DIE IS A CURSE. HE IS NOT YOUR GOD!!

    Domestic Abuse sef is too much; the public disgrace and humiliations our women swallow daily in the name of “ride or die” just says everything about their self-esteem.

    …she looks like almost one of the Jacksons(just almost!). But you(Stella Damascus) forgot to tell the African mothers to also tell their daughters not to take money from their husbands friends; not to go to dinner with their husbands uncle; not to leave the children without food while she goes to the saloon; not to compare her husbands with her friends criminal husbands and boyfriends who steal; AND NOT TO INSULT HER HUSBANDS MOTHER AND ENTIRE FAMILY!!!!!!!
