Well-known celebrity stylist Toyin Lawani has revealed that her uncle molested her when she was 15 years old.

The mother of three spoke with media personality Chude Jideonwo about the terrible incident she went through as a young child.

“I got raped by my uncle when I was 15 years and I had to go to my grandmother’s place in Ibadan. I didn’t tell my mother, but had to tell one of my aunties. They had to take me to a hospital in Ibadan, the pregnancy was about five months already because I didn’t tell anyone and it was so hard for me.My mum was so disappointed and hurt. She could not take it”.

Lawani went on to say that the incident made her very cautious of her kids since she finds it hard to trust anybody around them.

“The person was so close to my family which is why I am so strict with my kids. I don’t trust anyone, even your brothers, sisters, anybody can betray you. Nobody can come close to my children anyhow, you can’t trust anyone, even your brothers and sisters. I lost my innocence at a very young age and I hated my mum so much for it because she wasn’t there for me; she was always at work. It traumatized me but now I understand”, she added.
