Just recently, celebrities took to their social media pages to lend their voices to the call for gender equality in Nigeria. Many shared photos of them or a family member contributing their quota to the discussion around the gender topic.

Nollywood actor Richard Mofe-Damijo popular called RMD has also lent his voice to this conversation. The media personality and grandpa took to his official Instagram page to call for gender equality.

According to the movie star, he was an only child, and being in that position did not give him any choice than to do house chores. He stated that he was raised by his mother to do all chores. The veteran further noted that men can contribute their quota at home and find a good balance between office work and house chores, especially during this lockdown period.

He shared:

”Being an only child, I was raised by my Mom to do all chores, so the issue of only the wife (woman) should cook, clean, wash might be alien to me but I know it is not to most men, which is why today I join my voice to the #HeForShe campaign and remind our men that #GenderEquality is not just in the workplace but at home. We can find a good balance between office work and house chores, especially during this lockdown period.”
