How Juliana Olayode 'Toyo Baby' Lost Her Virginity To A Married Man At 17

No comments :

Juliana Olayode, who played the character Toyo Baby in hit TV series, Jenifa's Diary, opened up about some really terrible times in her life while growing up.

Read excerpts from her book REBIRTH; From Grass To Grace.

1) She lost her virginity at 17 to her married music teacher
The day finally came. He wanted to move the date because he was expecting some
money that he wanted to use to pay for a good hotel, but moving it would mean my mum
back from church. So, he settled for a cheap hotel. I still remember the smell of cigarette
that filled the room. I hated the smell of alcohol and cigarette; I still do. We had to wait at
the reception for the room to be cleaned and aired.
So, we went back into the room, and it happened. It was a painful experience for me.
I cried at different points and he kept apologising, begging me to keep my voice down
lest they think he was raping me. He told me to relax and bear the pain. In his words, “do
not be a weak woman”. That got at me because I hated feeling or being treated as weak.I asked for a break. He tutored me some more and tried again until he finally got
through. It was not anything like he had told me it would be. I saw no clouds, I made no
sounds, I felt nothing special. It was painful all the way, but it was obvious he was
satisfied.
When he was done, I checked the bed for blood. I screamed! There was no blood!
He told me that not all virgins saw blood. I was so confused, but chose to believe him
anyway. Soon after, he slept, and I was there crying. Why didn’t I see blood? Even if not
all virgins see blood, why should I be on that list? How would I tell the story of losing my
virginity without blood? Who would believe me that I was actually a virgin?

2) Juliana Olayode's mother can NOT read

In my letter to my mum, I was able to tell
her how terrified I had been living in my step-dad's house. I thanked her for telling me the
details of what happened to her after dad asked her to leave. I told her I was proud of her
and that I would make her proud.
I gave it to her and she kept it in her bag. Later on, I asked her if she had read it and
she reminded me she could not read. I wondered how I forgot that. My dad was the one
who could read, not my mum.
So, your guess is as good as mine. I had to read it to her! I was so shy. I read it to her
and had to explain some parts in Yoruba. Long before I was done, she was already crying.
I said “I love you” to my mum and it sounded so strange to my ears. I forced the words
out of my mouth and then hugged her. My mum laughed and said I was behaving like
‘Oyinbo’, like an American.

3) Her pastor abused her sexually!

I got to church and it was just the pastor there. I assumed he was the one who picked
his children from school that day as they were still in their school uniforms and they were
with him in church. He told me to come into his office and asked his children to go into
the car.
In his office, he asked me if I read the scriptures he gave me and if I observed my
prayer time. I told him I did. So he then claimed God told him I needed a spiritual bath
and that I had to take my clothes off. He claimed his office had been supernaturally made
a spiritual bathroom. He wanted to wash away the dirty water that was poured on me in
my dream.
As he spoke those words, I began to cry. Was my case that critical? Why would God
want me to have a bath in the pastor’s office? Couldn’t God wash me without me taking
off my clothes? Why all these complications?
The pastor told me to stop crying and that I should follow God’s instructions
through him. He said he would excuse me so God could do the sanctification. He left his office. I shut the door, made sure the windows were locked and put the curtains down. I
was naked in his office. He had told me how to pray and I prayed. I cried as I did.
I saw the door handle moving so I quickly got up and got dressed. I opened the
door and he came in with oil. He claimed again that God asked him to anoint my body
from head to toe. So, the anointing session started. He anointed my head, my eyes, and
was moving down. When he got to my chest, he did the sign of the cross and wanted to
proceed to touch me. I stopped him and told him to put the oil in my hand. I would
anoint myself.
He told me to lie down, that he wanted to anoint me down there. It was at the point
when he wanted to anoint me, I remembered I had forgotten to wear my pant when I
hurriedly dressed up. At that time, I also remembered the dirty things Mr. F used to talk
about. It was then my eyes were opened and I knew what this man was trying to do to me.
I got upset, took my bag and left immediately.

4) How her Meeting with Mercy Aigbe changed her life

Talking about how controversial actress, Mercy Aigbe's words changed her life, she wrote:
Someday last year, I met Mercy Aigbe through one of my friends that works with
her, Tosin Odusanya. She was very pleasant and kind. She answered many of my
questions and gave me some serious words of advice. I could tell she was talking from
experience.
At that time, I had just been written out of the Jenifa’s Diary TV series. I told her
about my desire to change my social media account name from Toyo Baby to another
name I wanted to push. I explained my fears and struggles.
After listening to me, she encouraged me on my stand as a Christian, asked me to
stay out of scandals and told me to maintain good relationships in the industry. In
response to my change of name, she told me sternly, “Do not confuse your fans. You
worked hard for that name. You gave life to the Toyo Baby character. Ride on it!”
It was after my conversation with her, that I got more comfortable with people
calling me Toyo Baby everywhere and I watched God open doors for me. That meeting
with Mercy Aigbe was a great blessing to me.

5) She is only 22 years old!

Even though she looks and carries herself like a 30 years old lady, Juliana just turned 22, June 2017!
I finished writing the first draft of this book some days to my birthday this year. I
clocked twenty-two (22) on Wednesday, the 7 of June 2017. So, you can easily deduce
that I was born Wednesday, the 7 of June 1995. Now, I would assume this is the most
shocking piece of information in this book. I have found out that the top question
people are asking Google about Juliana Olayode, is her age. Now, you know.

6) She was born in a CHURCH!

Julie also revealed how she was born in a church, she revealed how her mother went into labour for 3 days and was taken to the church for prayers and later birthed her!
The last time she called me Aduragbemi was when she told me how I was born. She
was in labour for three days! She kept seeing a black cat and every time she saw it, she lost
her strength. The strange thing was she was the only one seeing the cat. The midwives did
not see it. They were beginning to think she had a problem.
On the third day, she asked to be taken to church. The head of the prayer team
prayed over a cup of water and gave her to drink. At that moment, my mum’s strength
was renewed and she stopped seeing the cat. That’s how I came into this beautiful world
at C.A.C. (Christ Apostolic Church), Oke-Iyanu, Ogba, Lagos. That was the reason
behind my name, Aduragbemi.

7) She started Menstruating on the 5th of April, 2010

On the 5 of April, 2010, I got home, took off my uniform and saw a blood stain.
At this time, I was in Senior Secondary School, at Babs Fafunwa Millenium, Ojodu,
Lagos. I did not remember having any injury and mum was not home.
When I discovered where the blood was coming from, I started crying. How would
I explain this to my mum? I kept cleaning, but it kept flowing. I hurried to Toyosi
Oyesile’s place. She asked what was wrong and I explained to her, perplexed at bleeding
non-stop, without an injury. She laughed at me; she laughed so hard, she nearly choked on
her laughter. I was irritated at her insensitivity. I wanted to walk out when she pulled me
back, locked the door and said, “Congratulations. You’re now a woman”. She hugged me
very tightly.

8) Her role in Jenifa's diary gave her fame NOT Money!

She also revealed that her role in Jenifa's diary made her famous NOT rich, contrary to what people think! She also talked about how she hustled for Ushering jobs as low as 5k just to make ends meet after acting the Toyo baby's role in the Comic Series
The plans my mum and I had were exaggerated. I was paid for the series, but the
money I received could not do all my mum and I had fantasized about. In retrospect, I
laugh at the things my mum had planned to do with the pay; we had big dreams.
I honestly did not know how big my role in Jenifa’s Diary would be when I got the
role. I thought I would be done after the first season. I was surprised when I was called
back season after season. I got so busy. Jenifa’s Diary practically became my life; I was
almost always on set.
Even though I was already acting in the Jenifa’s Diary TV series, whenever I got a
call for ushering jobs, I took them. I needed the extra pay. I did decent ushering jobs. I
had values I could not compromise. No club, bar or night ushering jobs. No jobs with
indecent outfits. I did the regular wedding, and concert jobs. The pay for decent ushering
jobs was as low as Five thousand Naira per job but for me it was worth it.
My mum was concerned for me, wondering why I would be on TV and still be going
for such cheap jobs. I told her I had to do so. I could not sit at home when not on set
doing nothing and I definitely was not going to sleep around. Dee did not like the idea
either, but he understood my position.
There were times I went for ushering jobs and people recognised me. I smiled at
them. At times, fellow ushers jeered at me, wondering what Toyo Baby was doing serving
as an usher with them. I always found a way of laughing my way out of the teasing.
I was living with the Adiguns at this time. TiTiMi always gave us monthly stipends.
Even if I asked for more before the next was due, I was sure they would give me, but I
wanted to make more money myself.
But eventually, the ushering job started getting very embarrassing. There was a day I
went all the way to Shagamu for an ushering job and after a long day, working, we were
paid One thousand Naira. The Madame said she had not been paid and asked us to write
down our account details. Except she plans to pay tomorrow, I got no alert.
At that point, I cried to God. I felt cheated. It was getting too humiliating. I cried to
God and He made me know I should stop the ushering jobs. It was only God that could stop me in spite of the embarrassment. I was asking Him to make sure the woman paid
me, but He said I should stop ushering. I was initially upset with God, but before I left the
place of prayer, He had comforted me.

9) She could NOT go to school even after gaining admission cos of poverty!

I graduated from Babs Fafunwa Millenium Senior Grammar School, Ojodu-
Berger, Lagos. I was the Head Girl in my final year at school, loved by the principal, Mrs.
Adebayo, other teachers and students.
My Valedictory Ceremony in school was a very emotional one. I was missing
everyone and everything already, coupled with the fact that I was afraid of facing life
outside the four walls of my school.
Before I graduated, I took the JAMB exam and I passed. I was already an
undergraduate at the University of Ibadan as I had been given admission to study the
course I applied for, Mass Communication. Mrs. Adebayo was all smiles when I made the
information public. She announced it to the school with so much pride. People
applauded and my teachers congratulated me.
Little did I know I was going to lose the admission. My mum tried so hard to raise
my acceptance fee, tuition and other necessary payments, but she did not make headway.
I told her not to worry; I assured her our finances would be better the next year. She still
tried to raise it, but we missed the deadline. She was bitter for days and wondered why
they would not extend the deadline.
That was how I missed my admission to the University of Ibadan. My principal and
my English teacher, Mrs. Obabolujo called me to follow up. When I disclosed the bad
news, they were upset with me and told me I should have kept them abreast with how
things were going.

10) Her parents are separated and are both married to different people now!

Her mother married a Native doctor and her father married a divorcee who forced her and her younger brother to hawk puff even when she was suffering from chicken pox and had an infected leg!


ASUU Strike Would Be Called Off Within A Week - Minister Of Education Says

No comments :

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, says that the indefinite strike declared by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU, would be called off within the next one week.

Adamu who met with the leadership of the senate committee on Education today, said ongoing negotiations between the Federal government and the executive members of ASUU, indicates that the strike would be called off within the next one week. Adamu said negotiations between the Federal government and the academic union are ongoing.

Recall that on Sunday, August 13th, ASUU declared an indefinite strike over the failure to implement its 2009 agreement with the Federal government and 2013 memorandum of understanding (MoU). Other reasons listed for the strike include non-payment of salaries, non-payment of earned academic allowance (EAA), removal of universities staff schools from funding by government and non-implementation of provisions of the 2014 pension reform act with respect to retired professors and their salaries.

The memo issued by ASUU reads in part:
“The national executive council (NEC) of ASUU met at the university of Abuja main campus, Giri, on the 12th of August 2017 to consider the results of a referendum from all branches in a bid to ascertain ways of convincing government to implement outstanding aspects of the 2009 agreement and MoU of 2013. The result of the referendum showed that an overwhelming majority of the branches of our union voted for the strike. In the light of the foregoing, and having exhausted all avenues to get government to fully implement the 2009 FGN-ASUU agreement and the 2013 MoU as well as related demands, resolved to embark on a total, comprehensive and indefinite strike action commencing Sunday, 13th August 2017.”


Nigerians Spend N400 Billion On Bribes Annually

No comments :

The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has said roughly N400 billion is spent on bribes each year in Nigeria, taking into account that nine of every 10 bribes are paid in cash.

The NBS stated this in “Corruption in Nigeria, Bribery: Public Experience and Response 2017 Survey’’, posted on the bureau’s website in Abuja.

The bureau stated that it was estimated that the total amount of bribes paid to public officials in Nigeria in the 12 months prior to the survey was around N400 billion.

The survey was conducted in April/May 2016 in all 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) of Nigeria.

The NBS said that bribe-payers in Nigeria spent an eighth of their salary on bribes.

On average, the report stated that almost one bribe was paid by every adult Nigerian per year.

It stated that by combining the total number of people who paid a bribe to a public official with the frequency of those payments, it was estimated that a total of roughly 82.3 million bribes were paid.

It added that roughly 82.3 million bribes were paid in Nigeria in the 12 months prior to the survey.

Hate Speech Is A Form Of Terrorism - Osinbajo

No comments :

He described hate speech as a species of terrorism on Wednesday.

Osinbajo disclosed this while speaking at an ongoing security summit organised by the National Economic Council holding at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“Silence in such situations can only be seen as an endorsement.
“Hate speech and the promotion of the same through history from Nazi Germany and the extermination of Jews to the Rwandan genocide succeeded in achieving their barbarous ends by the silence of influential voices.
“The silence of leaders at this time -in our country will be a grave disservice to our country, its peace and its future.”

I'm Not Happy With You - Charly Boy Calls Out 2Face

No comments :

Charly Boy has called out 2 Face Idibia of refusing to join the #ResumeorResign protest which he has now called off. If you recall, 2Face also cancelled his planned protest in February.

In a video posted on Instagram last night, the Area Fada said
“My guy 2face, I am not happy with you. Since I couldn’t reach you directly, I decided to reach you through this medium.

Do you remember when you called on Nigerian youths to come out and protest? We obeyed because we thought you had a good intention to stand up to the injustices against the youths and masses of this country.

But, as you retreated into a hole since then, I am very pained. If a beckon of hope like you can be lily-livered when people need you more, what is your problem?

“2face are you happy with the way Nigeria is headed? Are you saying you have not heard about the resume or resign protest, why are you not involved?”
