Teni the entertainer, others make OkayAfrica 100 women list
OkayAfrica has released its yearly “100 Women” list dedicated to celebrate iconic African women around the globe. Making the list, among other Nigerians, are Teni the Entertainer, Niniola, Oby Ezekwesili, and more.
Speaking on this, OkayAfrica said:
“This year we have dedicated the OkayAfrica 100 Women list to those daughters who embody the fortitude of their continental mothers, paired with sovereignty that is wholly unique to today’s youth culture. Freedom of minds, agency over our bodies, and equity for all is not a choice. It’s the only way.
“Youth culture, as we interpret it, does not subscribe to the idea that those who are participants are young in their stage of life. This list of women—carefully curated from over 500 nominations—is one that spans over two generations of changemakers and is not beholden to age. These are individuals who are both youth peers actively working to undo generational oppression in all forms and women who have dedicated their lives to investing in young people.”
