Anto Lecky Pays Tribute To Chimamanda Adichie, Genevieve Nnaji, And More For International Women’s Day.
In honour of International Women’s Day this year, Anto Lecky is paying homage to some incredible Nigerian women. The media personality and entrepreneur recreated famous photos of Nigerian female icons, some very popular, while others may be lesser known, but are deserving of the same reverence.
According to Anto, “Even though women deserve to be celebrated every single day, International Women’s Day is a perfect time to remember the contributions women make to our society. The women I chose to recreate are Nigerian heroes, across many industries, proving that women excel in many fields.”
“I am using an all-female crew to execute this project to demonstrate one of the themes for International Women’s Day, #BalanceForBetter; to allow up and coming professionals showcase their talents and to prove that women are as skilled as men.”
