Nigerian pop singer and peace ambassador, Adokiye shocked the social media world with her recent announcement on Twitter. She offered her virginity to the Islamic group, Boko Haram, in exchange for the return of the hundreds of kidnapped schoolgirls.
During an interview with Nigerian newspaper Vanguard, she stated “11pm in the night and do you know what I am thinking about? Those little girls, where they are and what could be happening to them. It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange. They are between 12 and 15 year old girls for Christ sake. I am older and more experienced. Even if 10 to 12 men have to take me every night, I don’t care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents.”
The kidnapping sparked a worldwide campaign #BringBackOurGirls, which celebrities and the first lady, Michelle Obama, proudly support.
One user tweeted “very touching.”
Another wrote “what can one make of this Adokiye offer; genuine, gallery play, tacky?”
Do you think the offer is noble or a publicity stunt?
