Singer Niyola Reveals Being Molested Severally

By on January 23, 2015

In an interview with Sound city VJ Pearl, Singer, Eniola Akinbo aka Niyola disclosed how she had been molested while growing up.

The ‘toh bad’ crooner said just like many women growing up, she was also molested.

“I have been molested quite a number of times. Thankfully, I haven’t been raped. I have been molested by both people I never imagined would molest me…and obviously strangers as well. And it wasn’t once, it wasn’t twice. It wasn’t three times.”

“But what helped me was that I started to try to figure out at that time why anybody would want to do that to me or to any female. I realised it was cowardice. Alot of things could be done to prevent the situations and protect yourself. I remember for a very long time, I would never visit guys. And when I started to live alone when I was in school, you would never come to my room for any reason. For a very long time I was paranoid”

” I realised that if you share your experience with people, your fellow women, you’ll find that it’s not that big a deal that you can’t come out & talk about it because it’s not your fault that someone tried to molest you. Such people should actually be punished and brought to book.
