Actress Bimbo Akintola Berates Feminism

Veteran Nollywood actress Bimbo Akintola has taken a stand against feminism and its “toxic practice”.

The 52-year-old actress made her stance on feminism known in a recent interview with a media house. 

Bimbo Akintola who sees herself as a humanist revealed that her passion for the girl child does not make her a feminist.

I am a Humanist – Bimbo Akintola

Buttressing her point, the ace actress stated that there is a wing of feminism that is too toxic which she does not want to be a part of. 

She added that her idea of a humanist is caring for everyone irrespective of their gender. 

Bimbo Akintola said, “My passion for the girl-child and the women does not make me a feminist; I am a humanist.

“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”.

Bimbo Akintola made her acting debut in the 1995 movie ‘Owo Blow’ and came into the limelight after starring alongside Richard Mofe-Damijo in the 1997 movie ‘Out of Bounds.’
