Kelechi Okafo Biography
An actress declined to appear on Woman’s Hour this morning after accusing host Emma Barnett of making ‘degrading and vile’ comments about her.
Kelechi Okafor was scheduled to speak on BBC Radio 4 to discuss the #MeToo movement with new host Emma Barnett.
But since the show was live, the British actress revealed that he had left the show, writing, ‘Because what I just had to witness is absolutely degrading and vile.
Posting a video on Instagram, Ms Okafor said: ‘I will not go to Woman’s Hour now. The presenter did not realize her microphone was on as she spoke ill of me to the producers. ‘
She added on Twitter: ‘The presenter didn’t realize that his microphone was on because he was talking about me before the interview started, is all I’m going to say.
You can be genuinely concerned about something you’ve been told about me and approach it in a polite way. That was not what happened.
‘Me and the other people who would be talking during the segment might hear me talk like an idiot.’
Barnett took over for Woman’s Hour on Monday, replacing Jane Garvey, who had been in the seat for about 13 years.
Who is Kelechi Okafor?
Actress Kelechi Okafor was born in Lagos, Nigeria and raised in South London.
She works as an actress and a twerking instructor.
She has appeared in television commercials for the Maltesers, Samsung, and Irn Bru, as well as on stage.
She is the founder of the Kelechnekoff Fitness Studio in Peckham, South London, which offers pole dancing and twerking classes for black women and non-binary people.
In 2017, Ms Okafor became the first black contestant to appear on the BBC reality series Special Forces: Ultimate Hell Week.
She eventually withdrew from the competition because she was ‘frustrated’ with the way she said she was treated.
She told The Guardian: ‘They put together things that didn’t really make sense to tell a story to viewers.’
“Kelechi is struggling, she’s frustrated, she’s arguing with this man.” Actually, my frustration stemmed from the fact that I had to walk on eggshells so as not to look angry. ‘
Miss Garvey told listeners
‘Over the course of these cataclysmic years in Woman’s Hour, I learned that actually, for all sorts of reasons, women have to be a little better, we have to try harder (than men), it’s going to be a little more difficult for us. ‘
Today’s show on the ‘Me Too’ movement took place one year after the start of the Harvey Weinstein court case in the United States.
Barnett was arguing, ‘what the #MeToo movement has accomplished and the unintended consequences.’
But the show also sparked anger among some listeners after one of the actresses claimed some women ‘lied’ about allegations of sexual abuse.
She told the show, ‘There are bad apples getting on the band wagon and maybe they’re not telling the truth … you hope there aren’t too many liars.’
