Nollywood royalty, Monalisa Chinda, has spoken out against domestic violence, as she urges women to quit provoking their husbands, saying that 50% of domestic violence incidents are caused by women
Speaking while appearing as a guest on The Other News, a satirical show hosted by comic-actor, Okey Bakassi on Channels TV, Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda, spoke out against domestic violence and s*xual harassment of actresses in the industry.
Monalisa who said actresses don’t talk about their s*xual harassment experiences over fear of stigmatization, noted that she’s never been a victim.
The gorgeous mother of one said: “It’s a bit uncomfortable for someone to come out and say I was cornered to sleep with a producer because of a role,”
“They keep quiet about it because of their careers. Apart from that, the society stigmatises these women. So you just swallow your pride. When you are outside the shores of Africa, women are heroes for coming out to speak about s*xual abuse, but not here.”
Speaking further, Chinda also urged women to quit “provoking” their husbands.
“As much as I detest all forms of violence against women and men, women should quit provoking their man by beating punches and slaps,” she said.
“I’m a domestic violence [enthusiast]. I always research when I hear fresh stories about domestic violence. Half the time, it is the women.
“God just gave us this running Okra mouth. Women, don’t fight with people who are stronger than you.”
