    I love this woman…raising the necessary awareness for such inhumane acts……My Nigerian brothers (especially fellas from the North), please end child marriage, rape, and abuse

    1. Omosexy!!!!!

    2. Isn’t it a shame that Nigerian leaders are not doing what the Zambian president is doing, showing a willingness to eliminate, not curb child marriages? I wish our northern leaders especially would support such campaigns but how would they when they are guilty of perpetrating the practice?

      Google is free and can cure your ignorance. She got married at 18. The legal age of Aldulthood and consent! Worldwide. Plus she was not a child bride forced into marriage. She is therefore the perfect one to champion this since she was actually young enough and old enough to get married.

      what an age to get married? you support that?its a shame how nigerians just sing a song and everybody else follows, i cant see what role model she is, but its great she is doing something.Good luck to her

      Shey: Please get your facts right, she got married at 18 and her hubby was 28. I’m not saying it’s ideal, but she wasn’t a “child bride”. She also wasn’t forced, she has stated severally that she just got into University at the time, and her Mother strongly advised for her to at least finish Univeristy; she blatantly refused. Even at that, she’s said publicly that her girls won’t get married as teenagers. So I’m not sure I get your point. She has every right to support the initiative.

    Omotola has never shut it down that she got married at an early age.She has always accepted it and now she is fighting against it because some tribes take it the wrong way giving out young girls at an early age for marriage.Quality control Omotola…a good course deserves an applaud…God bless

      Don’t even go there. Omotola is an even more nasty person and is very rude and condescending towards people. You need to see the way she yells at people like they’re slaves or worthless beings. Because nobody has gone on twitter to vent does not mean its not happening. The pics you see on blogs are a far cry from who she really is. Don’t be deceived. I’m talking because I know.

      And by the way these her “humanitarian” works are just moves to keep her brand alive while not featuring in any movie roles. Its all a “see how good I look” propaganda hence the social media infiltration each time. It’s never about what was done or progress made but always about what she wore, how people “fawned” over her and how ‘great’ she looked, that’s why all you see are pictures after pictures and nothing else really.

      Lol, you’re truly frustrated. Running from post to post to write on Omotola the legend, Na your fuel go finish. May you never experience any of her kind of bkessings. You and the one who has sent you.

    I really admire Omotola because amongst other things, she uses her fame and fortune to support the less privileged and raise awareness about important causes. that to me is what a celebrity should be about. what use is your fame and money if you don’t give back? i don’t know her personally, but she seems to engage in a lot of CSR campaigns, and i believe she gives back too. That’s my only grouse with madam genny..for all her fame and endorsements, i have never seen or heard about her giving back to the society that made her famous. i dont associate her with charity or charitable acts. (emphasis on the words “I have never” which means personal to me). i may be wrong.

      Genny is actually doing some charity work, only difference is that she keeps mum about it. Have you ever heard of her housing project for less privileged kids? That she doesn’t plaster her work all over social media doesn’t mean she’s not doing anything.

    This is a woman. Who else can do justice to such awareness than Omosexy. She’s gorgeous and using her fame for a good course. I’m sure our useless senators and house members from the North wont allow this to happen in Nigeria
    Well done beautiful. More grace

    I just care the motive behind this, as long as a celebrity is lending their voice to a notable cause, i’m down with it.
