Ace Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji, has shared her thoughts on feminism and what it means to her.

The award-winning actress aired her views when she spoke at the London School of Economics Africa Summit on Sunday.

It is also the first time the popular actress would publicly acknowledge being a feminist.

Genevieve Nnaji is a Nigerian actress, producer, and director. She won the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 2005, making her the first actor to win the award.

While speaking at the interview, the 39-year-old single mum said:

“My own feminism is just human rights. I’m a woman who has rights to her own choices; I can do whatever I want whenever I want. It’s just that simple if I were a man it would be the same thing,”
But this stand of the ace actress did not sit well with some men who took to her comment section to air their contrary views.
