Toyin Abraham, Nollywood actress and film producer, has publicly bashed Afropop artiste MC Galaxy for allegedly making ladies go nude for money.
The 34-year-old actress took to her Instagram account and penned a long read expressing her displeasure.
The ‘Sekem’ singer had on Saturday organised a contest, where ladies were said to have stripped, on his Instagram page, staking the prize at N50,000.
“Dear MC Galaxy, What you did asking girls to go naked for 50K is despicable, debasing and bad in every way. You just further strengthened the belief that the easiest way girls can get things is to sell their bodies,” she wrote.
“I simply can’t fathom what you need or gain from this despicable act when you could have checked in on porn sites. I’m not trying to be a moral judge. I’m the least qualified to judge a fellow human.
“But just the way you have used your platform for this woman-debasing act, I’m also using mine to stand against an act ridiculing women and further prove that some men are scum.”
Questioning his morals and accused him of making women “sell themselves short”, the actress who was formerly known as Toyin Aimakhu advised him to use his platform to uplift others.
“See what people like Linda Ikeji, Kemi Adetiba, Chimamanda, and other women are doing with their platforms. They lift other women by living, giving and not asking for nudes,” she said.
The actress went ahead to advise women who reportedly went naked on the singer’s page for the sum of N50,000 allegedly offered by him, saying:
“Please let’s do better. Le’s stop making men like MR. Galaxy think everything about women is money. Don’t sell yourself short because of 50K. It’s the least of the money you would make in your lifetime. We are women, we are powerful, not cheap.”

Dear MC Galaxy, what you did asking girls to go naked for 50k is despicable, debasing, and bad in every way. You just further strengthen the believe that the easiest way women can get things is to sell their bodies. I sincerely can't fathom what you need or gain from this despicable act when you could have checked in on porn sites. I am not trying to be a moral judge, I am the least qualified to judge a fellow human, but just the way you used your influence and platform for this woman-debasing act, I am also using mine to stand against an act ridiculing women and further prove that some men are scum. See what people like LindaIkeji, KemiAdetiba, Chimamanda, (Even your friend, LauraIkeji), and other women are doing with their platforms, they lift other women by living, giving and not asking for nudes. You can as well follow examples of young men like Davido, TundeEdnut, Wizkid and Banky W. My message to those girls that went naked on your page is this-please let's do better, let's stop making men like Mr. Galaxy think everything about women is money. Don't sell yourself short because of 50k, its the least of the money you will make in your lifetime. We are women, we are powerful, we are not cheap. With love always, Toyin Abraham.
MC Galaxy currently runs his own record label, MCG Entertainment, and is best known for his 2014 single ‘Sekem’.
