For Monalisa, #Iacceptthechallenge should also be about Southern Kaduna


If you are wondering why notable Nollywood actress and current Public Relations Officer of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Monalisa Coker has not shared her black and white image on her social media handles like other female celebrities and young ladies have done in support of the trending ‘I accept the challenge’ campaign for women in Diaspora, wonder no more.

The actress is one of the very few celebrities, who are of the opinion that the campaign should also be about drumming support for women and children in Southern Kaduna, who are being killed and dehumanised daily.

Although the actress of many credits has promised to post a black and white image of herself as the ‘I accept the challenge’ campaign demands, Lisa as the actress is simply called, took to her social media handle during the week to share her thoughts on the campaign.


Dressed in an Ankara gown with a sky blue scarf covering her hair, the fair skin actress wrote: “Much as I love what is going on with the ‘I accept the challenge’ trend, and while it is commendable to support women in Diaspora, let us also remember that our women and children in Southern Kaduna are being killed and dehumanized daily.”

She continued: “Shouldn’t we be fighting our cause as Nigerian women for Kaduna? Please stop the killing in Southern Kaduna.”

Next day, the star of Total Control and the engaging but long rested television drama, Heavens Gate, followed it up with a banner poster with the inscription ‘Please Stop The Killing’ and with this comment: “#southernkadunakillings…speechless.”

The actress has promised to keep the campaign going adding that she will be available to join any other effort aimed at calling attention to the situation in Southern Kaduna and other parts of Nigeria.
