Lisa Folawiyo Airs Her Views On Chimamanda Adichie’s ‘We Should All Be Feminist’ Speech

Apparently, top Nigerian designer, Lisa Folawiyo is not all for feminism and some of the ideals it propagates. Yesterday in what appears to be an innocent question that gradually snowballed into an heated exchange, the fashion entrepreneur commented on Polo Avenue’s boss, Jennifer Obayuwana snapshot of the TEDxEuston speech sampled by Beyonce for ‘Flawless’.

Lisa aired her reservations with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s famous speech ‘We Should All Be Feminists‘ and fans of the acclaimed writer had bones to pick with her.
After several back and forths with Adichie’s fan highlighting several woes of the Nigerian society and Lisa trying to make her point clear as well, the designer graciously stopped replying when things got heated. Chimamanda is yet to acknowledge or make any comment concerning the incidence but be sure we will keep you updated when that changes.
