When Jendella tweeted a link to this video from Candice Aboderin I immediately clicked the link because FOMO is real and also because I really enjoy Candice’s content. Candice was featured on our blog at the end of December. It was a great interview and a great feature to end 2016, you can read it here. Since contacting Candice about being featured on our blog I have regularly watched her YouTube channel as have my friends. We are in love with Candice and her little family, we cheered when she moved home and have watched her doing her Yoga challenge with Adrienne (note we have watched her doing yoga with Adrienne rather than doing the yoga with said Adrienne *insert Nollywood eye roll*).
Candice created a video monologue about her womanhood after being asked to speak at a charity event aimed at providing support for homeless women. The video is as aesthetically pleasing as it is thought-provoking. In this video Candice talks about her perception of womanhood and femininity. She explores her womanhood in contrast with that of her mother’s, she also looks at womanhood and femininity through the lens of race, gender, culture, society, motherhood and more. Candice touches on how she measured (we measure) and question our womanhood. I am proud of this body of work and encourage you to watch and share.
If this video doesn’t go viral I’m going to be pissed RIGHT off and I am not even joking. On that note Candice should have so many more subscribers, her content is a totally gorgeous reflection of family life, check out her channel for yourself.
Would love to see what you think in the comment section below.
