“My stepdad sexually abused me from age 11 to 17”- Temmie Ovwasa

Nigerian singer, Temmie Ovwasa, better known as YBNL Princess has revealed that she was sexually abused by her stepfather from the age of 11 to 17.

The  YBNL Princess disclosed this in a Twitter post while informing fans about her upcoming project.

In the post, Ovwasa claimed that despite seeing details of the incident in her stepdad’s diary, her mother refused to confront or divorce him. Instead, her mother called her “mentally unstable” when she first opened up to her about her experiences.

Ovwasa stated that she withheld the story because she was waiting for her mother to die and is now only telling the story because she is releasing her new project where she talked about some of her experiences.

Amidst what she had to go through, Ovwasa stated that she loved her mother who was a pastor but does not trust her because she stayed with her husband even though her daughter did not return home for almost 10 years.

“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,” she wrote.

“I was sexually abused by my stepfather from age 11 to 17, he groped me and wrote about it in his diary 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.

No, I’m only telling this story because I’m genuinely in a better place and I don’t want your support or pity, a lot of you fuckers are just as guilty. My mother is a pastor and she believes deep in her heart, she’s a good person, I love her to bits,” she added.

“But I don’t trust the woman that birthed me, she has stayed with her husband even despite the fact that I have not returned home for almost 10years, Oluwa Yemisi, I love you, but your other children will bury you, I will not be at your funeral.

And the reason I don’t necessarily hate her is, that I know the system gives women like her nothing, she is nothing without her husband. I see women like her every day, risking their peace for no good men, but A child is too big a price to pay for a man who isn’t shit.”
