Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Waje and Yemi Alade recently met together to discuss arrangements on how to launch Strong Girl, a new song and music video aimed at empowering women and girls around the world.
Nine artistes from seven African countries came together in South Africa earlier this month to write and record this song. In her recent chat with Vanguard news paper, she (Omotola) explained why she got involved in the campaign.
According to her, “I am fortunate to be a young woman living her dreams, a trailblazer of my generation.
I also recognize that many women and girls are not so fortunate, women and girls are disproportionately affected by girl to join my sisters from across the continent to tell the world that we can’t fight the injustice of extreme poverty without fighting the immense gender inequality that persists.”
The song was produced by Cobhams Asuquo, while the music video was directed by Godfather Productions.
