Di’Ja exposes a societal dysfunction that is failing Nigerian kids
Child protection has become a contemporary theme in Nigeria, from where Di’Ja, lead singer of Mavin Records, is paying attention to the age of the subject subject to consent.

Sunday 3 February 2019, he presents an investigation confirming 11, since the legal age accepted before a person can approve sexual activity.
When this has been violated, ie when there is a sexual interaction between an elderly person and a child of 10 years or less, only then is it a legal violation in accordance with the law.
Di’Ja is worried because it could mean damaging the future. New trends have surpassed old values, making them totally obsolete, but Nigeria seems to be lagging behind most.
Currently, it is classified as the country with the lowest age for the consensus tranche in the world established in 11. In the Kingdom of the Middle East of Bahrain, the age of consent is 21, almost double compared to Nigeria.
“This isn’t a fight against religion, tribe, gender but a redirection of our energies and thought processes to protect the ones that birth your nation.
“If children become psychologically, physically and emotionally damaged before a certain age all you will have are adults with suppressed memories of abuse, which lead to psychological mind ware-fare,” the singer counsels from her IG.
Marriage without consent
Child marriage can also be concerning. The move to marry an older man is not likely a decision a 15-year-old girl will be so eager to make.
In Anambra State, a girl of this age named Chinwe was the topic of a social media campaign #RetrieveChinwe started to deliver her from an arranged marriage her family supported.
It was to be a union between her and a 56-year-old Izuchukwu Igwilo, who reportedly has Down Syndrome.
The distasteful thought of such marriage ensured the intervention of a Nigerian Lawyer and human rights activist, Prince Gwamnishu Emefiele Harrison who was able to fulfill a vow to save young Chinwe from a marriage she gave no consent to.
Pulse has analysed that there is a conflicting interpretation when it concerns the principles that have been laid down to determine legitimate marriages. It is a job for legislators making sure that the Nigerian laws are able to reflect the ideals of humanity.
