Male Nollywood actors raise brows as they embark on a journey to attend Africa Women's Conference in Addis Ababa | TREND 9JA


    Male Nollywood actors were filmed travelling together to attend the Africa Women's Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and this has raised brows. The 7th Africa Women's Conference started on October 25 and will run through to October 27, 2023. The theme for this year's event, which is currently underway at the Sheraton Hotel Addis Ababa, is "Reviewing the Economic and Political Inclusion of Women and Girls in Africa's Development Agenda". Ahead of the event, male actors Ejike Asiegbu, Fred Amata, and Keppy Ekpenyong were filmed at the International Airport, Ikeja, getting ready to fly out to Ethiopia to attend the event.  Their journey has raised questions, including why men are at the forefront of such events and why they are taking up spaces meant for women.   Conversations about men being the centre at events meant for women are not new. Back in 2017, there was an uproar when Saudi Arabia launched its first-ever girls' council meeting and photos from the event showed 13 men on stage and no women (read here). Watch a video of the Nigerian actors leaving for Ethiopia below.
