She talked about how losing her father had an impact on her and that she had no idea how to deal with it.
The movie star opened up about losing her father when she was 12 in an exclusive chat with media personality Chude Jideonwo.
She added that because she was sent to Kaduna at a young age, they never had the chance to develop a close relationship like a father and daughter did. She claimed that she was not close to her dad before his passing away.
The mother of four claimed that facing such reality at such a young age nearly shattered her and made her emotionless; she credited her fearlessness and confidence to the “life-changing” moments.
The mother of four admitted she almost turned to prostitution to make sure no one was able to succeed in pulling her brothers apart from one another. She was forced to care for her brothers and safeguard them from anyone who would seek to separate them.
She said that they approached her in class right before their JSS3 and senior secondary exams, telling her she had to leave for home in Lagos.
Stating about her dad’s death and the impact on her, Omo Sexy as she fondly called stated: “I just started to see a crowd when I got to my street and I knew, definitely there’s been a death.
“So going through the crowd, the mental process till I got to my compound, and my compound was very big. And all these people, it was like a movie. I had to walk through their midst. And as you’re walking, everyone is turning to look at you, some wailing. Some looking in slow motion, I still remember the feeling.
“And I kept thinking, who’s going to greet me first? Who am I going to strike off the list? Then I saw my younger brothers. Then, I walked up the stairs and saw my mom. Then I froze because it now dawned on me that it was my dad.
“And so, I didn’t know how to react. I didn’t know if it was the guilt of me thinking it shouldn’t be him. I was too young to process it. Or the fact that I have truly missed him, and now that he’s dead; I won’t see him again? Or that I’m angry I didn’t get to spend enough time with him. He didn’t spend enough time with me because I was shipped to Kaduna. So, I didn’t know how I was feeling. And so, I was just there, numb. I was really numb.”
She added: “And now that I’m older, I think I understand it but then, I didn’t. So I just became emotionless and it has affected me till this day. There’s hardly anything you say that can move me. I am so confident of who I am that….’You no reach’.
“I mean, I’ve said it to presidents before who have invited me. ‘No, I don’t respect you’ because I don’t fear anybody.
“I know my dad was a very strong man. He died when I was twelve. And I think everything that I’ve been, positively or negatively was sore because of that, my father’s death. I don’t fear for my life to be honest.
“I think I probably would have become a prostitute today because I was that desperate. I got to a point and I said to myself, ‘I’d rather sell my body than for anyone to take my younger brothers apart’.”
