Well done Ms Iyanda. We are very proud of you. E no easy to climb mountain. Other Nigerian women should take note and make a difference like this woman is doing. It's not just to sit at home mpopping babies out like rabbits and then sending them on the streets to hawk goods when said kids are older. Let's try to make the world a better place.

This is my opinion and any potential insults hurled at me will go back to you and your generations unborn.

I've always have huge crush on Funmi Iyanda...She is soooo smart, elegant, humble and above all: she is Caliente....(She is one of the few older femmes i admire); Met her once @ the "shop & eat" section of the Rockefella building and had a good lunch convo with her for an hour.

We need women and saw called A-Z lists celebs (Linda included)to give back to their society without bring in media for photo ops

For those acting how they relate. Climbing Kilimanjaro means ending Violence against women is nt insurmountable. Jst as d climb was achieved, so also can Violence be stopped. Simple

All these lousy activities that have no bearing with reality. Climb Everest all you want and i will applaud you but the moment you try attaching such activities with unrelated causes i begin to suspect that you are deluded.
It is the same thing with these clowns called celebrities who pose nude in magazines for animal safety awareness. Just go naked, you don't need a reason for it.Gross madness!!!

i still dnt get d connection of the climb on the mount wth volience against women n children or did they offer prayers 2 God

Anonymous said...

Too many ignorant people here....for once can't u be nice...starting from the first dumbo that wrote she looked bleached. To others, from my understanding....they get sponsors and try to raise money from them for this particular cause....her pledge is to go for this task while her sponsors provide the money that will create awareness to end violence against women and girls

Bamidele said...

Funmi,(I hope she wont break while Climbing? lol 'cos of her "Legelege"(Slender) stature. Well, the stature seem perfect for the task right?.
please try climb to the top and plant Naija Flag on Mt. Kilimanjaro as the First Nigerian Woman to climb (I stand to be corrected). Linda-Linda is your turn next, so get ready...

Climbing mount kilimanjaro, may not end 'violence against women and children' but it draws attention to this socio-cultural issue. When people come across the news that some people have gathered to climb a mountain as huge as the Kilimanjaro, they are bound to ask what it's in aid of. Then the issue of violence against women and children will come to the fore. If that person is unaware that women and children constantly face various forms of societal violence and conflicts then the advocacy against evil strikes him/her. It might move such a person to begin to enlighten other people who may not be in the know.
Funmi Iyanda, well done!

They said she achieved a feat you will NEVER be able to embark upon and all you could comment on was her skin.

Guys, grow up already!! God, when are you ever going to get outta this darkness and embrace light, learn how to be polite, appreciate feats we on ourselves cant achieve and give glory to whom it is due? Must you always pass snide comments? I bow for NAIJA oo... Fumni darln, you are an ambassador! Nice one!

ijeoma said...

Ok, for those of you who don't have google and keep asking how this benefits a cause, here's how it works. A person undertakes to do a difficult task. There's media attention on it, also bringing media to the cause that the person is doing the task for. In some cases, you're made aware of ways to donate money towards the cause. Sometimes a company sponsors and says if you climb Kilimanjaro, we'll give 1 million dollars to help cure cancer. At the moment, @sportsrelief is going on in the UK and its the same principle. Various celebrities undertake various sporting activities, bring awareness to an issue and raise funds.
And those complaining about her looks, y'all need to get out more and quit being so anal. (End of epistle)

too many ignorant peep here..even if she climbed it for fun. Its a feat and she ought to be celebrated...

Chei, she tried ooo, me am not sure I can climb such oo.

Thanx so much for the explanation. I was really pained by d silly questions most pple asked on d relationship btwn d mount climbing and d awareness. Atleast, some asked innocently to know while most asked to beef. This shows dt most pple are just too shallow minded and will only prefer gossip and sex related stories. Even my little Son understands dat drawing pple to participate or get informed about a difficult task cld be to create an awareness for a theme. Welldone Miss Iyanda. Her personal live is nobodys damn biz. Get charitable and stop being holier than God cos even Jesus mixed wt everyone.

I prefer ignorant people who ask questions than ignorant people who present their ignorance as gospel truth. Eg. Some ignoramus said that Ambrose Alli University is a private university on another post.

Thanks Ijeoma for explaining to them. Well done aunty Funmi for helping to raise the awareness as well as the money donated by the sponsors which can be used to help some of the victims of domestic violence.

For does dat are finding it difficult to undastand d reason behind d kilimanjaro tin. Its to create awareness for pple to no dat women and children are been violated In our society. Dere are various ways of creating awareness eg movies, shows, rally, media etc.
