In her words,

“My grandmother came one day and arrested me and I decided I didn’t want to stay with her, so they took me to my uncle’s house. I started living with him and he started making some advances towards me, trying to harass me sexually. And I told myself, I couldn’t go through this again.

The relationship affected my acting career to some extent, but I picked up back. 2022/2023, the Devil tried, but he didn’t win.

I suffered from depression because things became difficult for me, I couldn’t meet my needs, people were looking up to me and I wasn’t working. It got to a point that I couldn’t sleep, had to put the Bible on my chest before I could sleep peacefully cause I would always see something in the dark. I stopped functioning, couldn’t eat, brush, bathe, and all”.
