“My sister once set me up with her boyfriend to confirm my virginity status” — Actress Nkechi Blessing
Nkechi Blessing, the popular Nollywood actress, has revealed how her sister hooked her up with her boyfriend to establish if she was a virgin. She told Chude Jideonwo about this in a recent interview.
Blessing claimed that her personal experience was the catalyst for her intense feelings over the Baba Ijesha rape case.
She described how her older sibling, when she was 16 or 17, didn’t believe she was a virgin “because I was weird.”
She claimed that, despite the fact that her mother had a beer parlour at the time, she was so severe that her children were afraid to mess around town.
“She (sister) invited me out with her boyfriend. I was cool with it but then it started to seem as though she wanted to set me up with her boyfriend to confirm if I was still a virgin or not. They brought drinks and I drank them. She stood up, left, and said she would be back.
The guy stood up and sat beside me. My mind immediately went to the fact that my mother didn’t believe I was a virgin. I was scared to death but I knew I needed to do something. Next thing, I summed up the courage to leave and the guy held me down and said ‘you’re not going anywhere’. Then, I asked him, ‘uncle, you wan rape me?’ This statement startled him and then he let me go”.
