“ I was defiled by my uncle, I hate my mum for that “ Toyin Lawani narrates

Popular Nigerian fashion Designer Toyin Lawani details fans on the trauma she had when she was small.

She revealed on how she was raped and impregnated by her Uncle when she was 15 years old.

The celebrity revealed this during her interview with Chude Jideonwo a media personality.
She revealed that her mother was always busy and doesn’t make time for her.

In her words;

“I never told anybody this before, I don’t think I have told my husband. At 15, I got raped by someone in my neighborhood, I have told my husband about the rape before, it was one of my uncle.


I couldn’t tell my mum, it was so bad for me when somebody bullies you to the extent that you can’t talk. It was so bad. I opened up to one of my aunties, she is late now, aunty Bola, and she took me to Ibadan they tried to get rid of the pregnancy.


It was at the same time I had to go get my admission in Uni and my mum, my mum is late – my dad is late, so don’t want to break down, so I can’t talk about it.


They had to take me to a hospital in Ibadan, the pregnancy was about 5 months cause I didn’t tell anyone and it was so hard for me I went to get my admission and I fainted at the premises. The doctor opened up to her that I was pregnant and they had to take it out.
She couldn’t take it because I was so young and I didn’t tell her all this because the person was close.


That’s why I am very strict with my kids. I felt I had lost my innocence to someone in the same house as us.
My mum was always working. I hated my mum so much because she wasn’t there until now that I had to do the same responsibly for my kids. It traumatized me.” She said
