A couple of weeks ago actor and model Emmanuel Ikubese launched the Project RAW (Respect A Woman) as part of the Emmanuel Ikubese Foundation.
A shoot was done recently, directed by Juliet Ibrahim, in a bid to raise awareness against domestic violence.
The Emmanuel ikubese Foundation (Project Raw) has partnered with agencies such as the Lagos State domestic violence and sexual response team, Mirabel center and Project Alert to create awareness and also help victims.
For help call 112 or 08137960048.
Emmanuel has reiterated the fact that, if Respect can be applied in Relationships/Marriages it will significantly reduce the rate of Domestic violence in our society.
Director of the shoot, Juliet Ibrahim explains “The shoot was something I was excited to be part of because it was an avenue to bring to fore what a lot of women go through in silence on a daily basis via domestic abuse. I tried my best to make sure the work has a consistent message that fits in with what Emmanuel is trying to project, hoping that it would give women a strength to speak up and men a spine to man up and stop battering women both emotionally and physically. Kudos to the photographer and makeup artist, working with them made the vision I had as a director so easy to visualize”
The shoot was done at the Le Paris Hotel, Lagos and it features Juliet Ibrahim, Adunni Ade, Beverly Naya, Layole Oyatogun and Tania Omotayo, Lisa Omorodion and Taje Prest.
