She told women to carry themselves with dignity and advised them to know their worth. She then advised them to desist from following thee ideas and principles of the society and not follow things that may lower their self esteem as women.
Mercy Chinwo told women not to participate in every challenge they see on social media like the Silhouette challenge. She told women that they are different from the world and should not participate in such thing.
She wrote, “Dear women, you don’t have to follow every trend. Carry thyself with dignity, know your worth.. this is why you are different,” she wrote.
“Let your light so shine before men so that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.. #ISTANDAGAINSTSILHOUTTECHALLENGE.”
“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you. But be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.Romans 12:2.”
For those who don’t know the ongoing trend called the Silhouette Challenge, the Silhouette Challenge follows women dancing under a red light in nudity, allowing viewers to see on the Silhouette figure of their body.
However, it has been revealed that the challenge isn’t followed by only women as some men have joined the challenge showing off their body, while some men feature their partners in the video.
Some Nigerian celebrities have joined the challenge and posted the videos on their social media handles with the tag #SilhouetteChallenge.
