Veteran Nollywood actress Bimbo Akintola has said that she does not want to have anything to do with feminism because of its toxicity.
In a recent interview with Premium Times, Akintola said that her passion for the girl-child and women in general does not make her a feminist but a humanist.
According to her, caring for humans irrespective of gender makes one a humanist.
She, however, noted that her niche is the women and girl child because there is so much to do in that aspect.
“My passion for the girl-child and the women does not make me a feminist; I am a humanist,” she said.
“I don’t like this feminist idea because I think there’s a focus on this wing of feminism that is extreme.
"It’s toxic. I don’t want to be part of that.
"I want us to realise that you care about humans if you say you are a humanist
“That means every individual: boy, girl, woman, man; everybody.
"My niche is the women and the girl child because there is so much to do concerning this issue in Nigeria.”
