BBNaija: I am not a virgin, I was raped by popular entertainer, Ifu Ennada opens up
Evicted Bug Brother Naija housemate, Ifu Ennada has opened up on a very sensitive part of her life, revealing she was raped and infected with a Sexual Transmitted Infection by an unnamed personality in the entertainment industry.
She shared this via her Instagram page.
“The truth is in 2016, I was raped by someone in the entertainment industry, before then I was a Virgin. This person also infected me with an STI.
“ I was also threatened by this person and was very scared of social media’s bashing with the usual questions of “what was she wearing!’’ “why did she go to his house ?’’
“So in all my sadness and depression, I decided to tell the world what had happened to me using film as a medium.
“I was inspired to write and produce my film `Tears of A Broken Virgin’. I got a lot of help from social media.
“People volunteered to work for me free including my director – Benny Atagame Alli.
“Though some parts of my film are fiction, the bulk of it was inspired by my story. The lead character’s name is Ada which is a short form of my name Adanne- popularly pronounced as Ennada.
“Because of my sad experience I battled depression, developed trust issues and found it hard to connect with people especially men.
“I wanted to tell my story and also pass a strong message to rape victims and rapists…I hope I was able to do that with my film.
“I intend to expand this into a feature-length film. I hope everyone out there is inspired to stand up against rape.’’
