Nollywood veteran actress, Bimbo Akintola believes the feminism ideology is toxic and would rather be described as a humanist.

The 52-year-old actress who is well known for featuring in movies that tell stories of women’s plights and the girl-child made this known in an exclusive interview with Premium times.

“My passion for the girl-child and the women does not make me a feminist; I am a humanist.” she said.

Further explaining why she considers it toxic, the actress said “I don’t like this feminist idea because I think there’s a focus on this wing of feminism that is extreme. It’s toxic. I don’t want to be part of that. I want us to realise that you care about humans if you say you are a humanist.”

“That means every individual: boy, girl, woman, man; everybody. My niche is the women and the girl child because there is so much to do concerning this issue in Nigeria”.

Some of the movies Akintola has starred in addressing issues of women include ”Widows the morning after” and “Purple but not purple”
