Nigerian singer, Temmie Ovwasa, has taken to Twitter to disclose how she was allegedly sexually abused by her stepfather from six years.
According to the singer, she had always wanted to tell the story for a long time, but was waiting for her mother to die because she didn’t want her to bear the shame.

She said her stepfather shared details of the abuses in a dairy which her mother found but still stayed in the marriage.
The singer said she would not be at her mother’s funeral, adding that she did not hate her because the system gives women like her nothing.
In her words, “In the spirit of exposing my step father as a sexual predator, I want to state this very clear , I do not believe in the justice system so if you’ve hurt me sexually, watch your back. I’m not afraid of blood
“I’ve always wanted to tell this story but I’ve been waiting for my Mother to die because I didn’t want her to bear the shame of it but it’s 2022 angels, and in the spirit of releasing my new project where I talk about some of my experiences, I’ll be sharing this to start off.
“I was sexually abused by my step father from age 11 to 17, he groped me, and wrote about it in his dairy which my mother found, My first experience with being called mentally unstable after sharing a story was with my mother (which is why you stupid internet trolls don’t faze me)
“After my Mother found out she said it was ‘just anal’, according to his dairy, Meaning that it wasn’t such a big deal since I wasn’t ‘penetrated’, I know through and through what a predator looks like, thinks like, I know they never believe they’ve done anything wrong
“This started a cycle in my life, of people calling me mentally unstable, mad, depressed because I was actually, I cut myself for years, in and out of psychosis and you know the best part. Every time I had an opinion about what her husband did, My mother would say it’s psychosis.”
