23-year-old singer Adokiye once claimed that a man would have to buy her a private jet if they wanted to have sex with her.

Adokiye has since changed her mind and recently told a Nigerian magazine that she would offer her virginity in exchange for the freedom of 200 kidnapped schoolgirls.

‘This is 11pm in the night and do you know what I am thinking about? Those little girls, where they are and what could be happening to them. It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange.’

The schoolgirls were kidnapped by Boko Haram in the middle of the night two months ago, prompting a worldwide condemnation of the mass abduction, and the start of the #BringOurGirlsBack campaign.

‘They are between 12 and 15 year old girls for Christ sake. I am older and more experienced. Even if 10 to12 men have to take me every night, I don’t care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents.’

Adokiye’s comments have been met with both praise and criticism.

Do you think this is brave or this a shameless publicity stunt?
