Iconic Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo took to his Instagram page recently to post a photo of himself rocking his wife’s bonnet cap and washing plate in the kitchen.
RMD’s post and caption sparked a conversation in the comment section of his post by his fans as some of them commended him for helping out while others mocked him for wearing an apron and a bonnet cap.
Being an only child, I was raised by my Mom to do all chores, so the issue of only the wife (woman) should cook, clean, wash might be alien to me but I know it is not to most men, which is why today I join my voice to the #HeForShe campaign and remind our men that #GenderEquality is not just in the workplace but at home. We can find a good balance between office work and house chores, especially during this lockdown period.I challenge my friends @[email protected]@[email protected]@AlibabagcfrTo do the same and tag me @mofedamijo and @HeForShe using the hashtags #HeForShe #GenderEquality #HeForSheAtHome#HusbandMaterial We are in this together #RmdSaysSo,”
