Nigerian Male Celebrities Say ‘NO’ to Violence Against Women in Project R.A.W Campaign

Sharing is caring!

Until now, some may be tempted to think Nigerian men are a different breed incapable of protecting their women and children, and at a minimum speaking out against violence against their most vulnerable. Not anymore. Project R. A.W (Respect A Woman), launched in March 2015 by Emmanuel Ikubese (actor), is clear about being a part of the solution and using the voices of men to lead and end domestic violence and sexual assault against women.

Ikubese recently launched a compelling campaign in pictures, and has now enlisted the help of fellow male celebrities like Alibaba, 2face Idibia, Sound Sultan, and Banky W to send a strong message of ending violence against women, in his latest campaign video. He also has an upcoming movie titled ‘Black Out’, as part of his Project R.A.W. initiative meant to educate and help alleviate violence against women.

Project R.A.W  has also partnered with agencies such as the Lagos State Domestic Violence and Sexual Response Team, Mirabel rape center and Project Alert to create awareness and provide help for victims of sexual and domestic abuse.

Check out his key multi-media campaign assets so far. The images were directed by Juliet Ibrahim. If you would like to be involved, visit PROJECT R.A.W.
