The Girls Get Equal campaign ambassadors led by Miss World Africa, Quiin Abenakyo, tendered in their request that singer Shafik Walukagga a.k.a Fik Fameica’s song titled My Property be banned.
The group of Youth activists appealed to the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga arguing that it lowers the position of women in society.
They urged that the lyrics of the song titled ‘Property’, women are depicted as property, sugar, chapatti, and yogurt.
The presentation was read before the Speaker of Parliament by a student known as Fatiah Naigaga from Kamuli Progressive College who pointed out that the song undermines women and sends a negative message to the public.
These are part of the negative media messages that influence and portray women and girls as mere objects. This should stop if the country wants to attain equal space for both boys and girlsFatiah Naigaga
The plea was made during the Plan International official launch of the Girls Get Equal Campaign in Kampala at Hotel Africana on Friday.
