Nollywood Actor Deyemi Okanlawon responded after his colleague Genevieve Nnaji call him out for making a joke of the Women Supporting Women Black and White Challenge as him and other male celebrities like Don Jazzy, Nosa Rex, Uti, Kenneth Okoli, and Melvin Oduah dressed like women to take part in the challenge.
Genevieve then attacked them saying they are making a joke of the Women Supporting Women challenge
She wrote: “We seek solace in humour to distract us from pain or discomfort. Tell me what it is you feel exactly? You see, that feeling that triggered you to make a joke of a movement that can only be understood by those it was meant for; the feeling of being overlooked or disregarded is part of the point of the challenge. No one likes to feel invisible. You felt it for a second. Women feel it every day of their lives. Let us hold our own hands if we want to. Be ok with it. Not everything is about you or for laughs. Shalom.”
Reacting, Deyemi then posted a black and white photo of Genevieve and wrote: “Dear big sis @genevievennaji… I know your heart and I stan forever! And to anyone else female/male who may have misconstrued the intent and felt bad, do know that I see you and I’m truly sorry you feel that way. In these times we need all the love, support and smiles we can get! ”
