Popular Nigerian female singer, Seyi Shay, has said that she is not a feminist even though many perceive her to be one.
Seyi hay stated that although she’s an advocate of female empowerment, she doesn’t belong to any school of feminism.
The “Murda” singer is involved in the United Nations women and girl-child empowerment campaign.
She said: “I’m not a feminist, I just believe in the principles of human rights so I fight for it.
“A friend in South Africa who was sourcing for the project was interested in what I was doing with my own charity- ‘A Ray of Hope’, that focuses on less privileged children, women and the ‘girl child’, and decided that I would be the best candidate to represent Nigeria for this global campaign.
“I plan to continue to lend my voice and my platform to similar causes. Most importantly I want to set a great example for all young girls out there.”
