4 years ago



Multi-award winning actress and philathropist, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, paid Big Brother Naija Housemates a very special visit this morning and used the opportunity to chat to them about the shocking inequalities young girls still face when it comes to access to quality education.

The Housemates gasped in shock as she pointed out that over 130 million girls in developing countries still don't have access to quality education and if they were a country it would be the 10th largest in the world.



She urged them all to use their voices to draw attention to this shocking disparity reiterating the mantra of her campaign that "poverty is sexist!"

She also opened up about losing her father at a very young age and having to become the head of the household before delving into greater detail about her work with the ONE campaign to create support structures for young women in a similar position.




Uriel and Bisola then recounted their own struggles with having to become mother figures to their younger siblings after losing their fathers at very young ages as well.

Marvis who comes from a family of eight also described how strained and confusing her relationship with her sister became after she took over the duty of parenting them.



Omotola completely related to this and explained that her own siblings still didn't know how to relate to her at times as she was a mother and sister all at once.

"It is an honour to stand next to a powerful woman!," Omotola exclaimed before the buzzer sounded and she said her goodbyes.
