Speaking in an interview with BBC Africa, as the world marks International Women’s Day, the 32-year-old actress said women in Africa are ready—so they world should believe in them.
“African women, we’ve been ready,” she said. “So we just need opportunities, we need the world to believe in us more.
“We believe in ourselves. We just need the doors to open.”
