The Lionheart movie producer joined the growing list of female celebrities who have voiced their opinions on what true feminism should means when she spoke at the London School of Economics Africa Summit.

“My own feminism is just human rights. I’m a woman who has rights to her own choices; I can do whatever I want whenever I want. It’s just that simple if I were a man it would be the same thing,” Nnaji said.

“At the end of the day I was born alone, I’m going to die alone, I breathe alone. So I definitely have the right to how I want to live my life, and as a woman, the fact of the matter is no one needs to tell me otherwise.”
