‘My stepfather sexually molested for 6 years’ – Temmie Ovwasa shares ordeal
NEWS DIGEST – Nigerian artiste, Temmie Ovwasa has explained how she was sexually molested by her stepfather for six years.
In a series of tweets on her official Twitter page, Temmie Ovwasa narrated how her mother ignored her despite reporting the stepfather’s sexual abuse.
According to the former YBNL signee, she had constantly wanted to tell the ordeal for a long time but said she was waiting for her death because she does not want her to bear the shame.
She disclosed her stepfather wrote the details of the sad incident in a diary which her mother found but still remained in the marriage.
The singer who disclosed she would be absent at her mother’s funeral also said she did not dislike her mother because the system gives women like her nothing.
Part of her tweets read, “In the spirit of exposing my step father as a sexual predator, I want to state this very clear, I do not believe in the justice system so if you’ve hurt me sexually, watch your back. I’m not afraid of blood
“I’ve always wanted to tell this story but I’ve been waiting for my Mother to die because I didn’t want her to bear the shame of it but it’s 2022 angels, and in the spirit of releasing my new project where I talk about some of my experiences, I’ll be sharing this to start off.
“I was sexually abused by my step father from age 11 to 17, he groped me, and wrote about it in his diary which my mother found, My first experience with being called mentally unstable after sharing a story was with my mother (which is why you stupid internet trolls don’t faze me)
“After my Mother found out she said it was ‘just anal’, according to his dairy, Meaning that it wasn’t such a big deal since I wasn’t ‘penetrated’, I know through and through what a predator looks like, thinks like, I know they never believe they’ve done anything wrong
“This started a cycle in my life, of people calling me mentally unstable, mad, depressed because I was actually, I cut myself for years, in and out of psychosis and you know the best part. Every time I had an opinion about what her husband did, My mother would say it’s psychosis.”
I’ve always wanted to tell this story but I’ve been waiting for my Mother to die😂 because I didn’t want her to bear the shame of it but it’s 2022 angels, and in the spirit of releasing my new project where I talk about some of my experiences, I’ll be sharing this to start off.

The singer proceeded to say, if Jesus might have washed away the sin of her mother, in her own world, the sins are written in stone.
“Even after I told you to stop telling me to talk to my “dad”, you kept trying to get me to have a relationship with my RAPIST, Whatever you tell yourself that makes you sleep at night is fine, Jesus might have washed your sins away but in my world it is written In stone…”
