Shocking statistics by UNICEF says that Nigeria will have the highest number of child brides by 2050…

A child is below 18, and at that age her guardians should ensure she is sheltered from harm.
Marriage for a child is harmful and portends trouble- psychologically and physically for the child.
Many cases of VVF is caused by early childbirth
These are the issue I address in my forthcoming movie, Dry.

If you must have kids then you must protect your kids
Marriage is for adults.
Let our voice not go under, let us not get tired. Let the conversation begin!
