She said as a staunch advocate for female empowerment in the creative scene, Moliy feels that EQUAL Africa had provided a platform that inspired generations of women in Africa.
“As if that is not enough reason to uplift female artistes, there’s always a reason to bring us down: from body shaming to constantly comparing and pitting us against each other.
“There is also this theory that women ‘supposedly’ have a ticking time bomb hanging over our heads on when we can be successful and when our prime time is over,” she said.
“When people ask who are the biggest artistes here, the first five names you hear are likely to be male, but this is what I live for, this is why I am here, there will be a day when the top five will be females and I’m going to be alive to see it.
“I am going to be one of the greatest artistes to ever come from Africa and inspire an entire generation of women,” she said. (NAN)
