Veteran Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus has revealed how she was molested at the age of eight.

In a live session with the veteran rapper, Bouqui, and monitored by Ripples Nigeria, the renowned thespian narrated how she was molested by a supposed relative at a tender age.

The 43-year-old mother of two shared her story while explaining why she had been calm about the rape issue.

“I hate it when people come and say this thing happened to you, why are you just talking about it now.

“Bouqui, it has happened to me, I don’t say this anywhere, I have never said this before, it has happened to me, it wasn’t rape, it was molestation, by someone who was supposed to be related to me.”

She continued;

“I was eight years old, I couldn’t talk about it for years because it traumatized me, nobody knew; I was dealing with it myself.

“Why couldn’t I talk, I knew what happened to others who had spoken up about it, they were disgraced; if you see the shame, even in school, once the word got out, it was about her being a prostitute even as young as we were, they would call you names, so man as seen you?”

In the latter part of the session, Damasus stated;

“Man has touched you?

“It’s not about what you’re going through, at the end of the day you spend years dealing with your trauma and we are not in a society that believes in “oh! go and see a therapist to talk about it for counseling,” said Damasus.
