Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham, in a statement posted on her Instagram page, criticised singer MC Galaxy for allegedly requesting young women to go nude in exchange for N50,000 and described the singer’s action as “despicable, debasing, and wrong in every way”.
“Dear MC Galaxy, what you did asking girls to go naked for 50k is despicable, debasing, and bad in every way. You have just further strengthened the belief that the easiest way women can get things is to sell their bodies” She wrote.
“I sincerely can’t fathom what you need or gain from this despicable act when you could have checked in on pornographic sites on the Internet. I am not trying to be a moral judge. I am the least qualified to judge a fellow human, but just the way you used your influence and platform for this woman-debasing act, I am also using mine to stand against an act that ridicules women and further proves that some men are scum.
“See what people like Linda Ikeji, Kemi Adetiba, Chimamanda Adichie, even your friend, Laura Ikeji and other women are doing with their platforms. They lift other women by living, giving and not asking for nudes.
“You can as well follow the examples of young men like Davido, Tunde Ednut, Wizkid and Banky W. My message to those girls that went naked on your page is this: let’s stop making men like Mr. Galaxy think everything about women is money, please let’s do better.
“Don’t sell yourself short because of 50k. It is the least sum of money that you will make in your lifetime. We are women, we are powerful and we are not cheap.”
